Accidentally add vertex (iOS) when trying to edit attribute feature

On several occasions, I have inadvertently added a vertex to my polyline feature, when I'm simply trying to update a attribute feature by clicking the right-arrow (>) to open the list box. It seems there is a small area just to right edge of the iPad screen to the right of the right-arrow that I keep adding a vertex BEHIND the attribute window. Not a big deal to click the "Remove Vertex" or whatever the tool is, but if I'm not paying attention I can very easily screw up my polylines.  I know I need to better train myself to not "aim" for the right-arrow, but I'm finding I'm not the only one in my organization that appears to click the right-arrow.

Is this considered a bug or "design" issue?

Hi Matt,

That wouldn't be a bug since CREATE is enabled as a capability on the Feature Class. Its behaving as configured.
