In Microsoft OneNote on a ipad I am trying to click on the window and start a new text box or container.  The problem is that it selects my page text and brings up the keyboard, but does not start a text box/container where I clicked on the screen.  I do not want to edit the page title text I want to start a new text box/container where I clicked on the screen and start adding text.  If I go to OneNote on my pc and add some text below the page title text and the sync my notebook and then go back to ipad I am able to click on the text and start editing and typing.  The problem is only when I am trying to add the first text box on the page below the title text.

If I understand correctly, you already have some text on that page/section and you just want to add new text(box) above it? If so, the trouble is that you cannot really move/resize boxes on the iOS versions, so you kinda end up selecting the existing "top" box. There are still some limitations compared to the desktop versions, or the web app, and the workaround is indeed to use those to perform the desired action.

It seems that you are correct.  That is one of the biggest features of OneNote Desktop version is that you can add the containers anywhere you would think that they would have that in the ipad version.  Thanks for the reply.
