There is a trouble between SEO by Yoast Plugin and WPML Plugin after the last update of SEO Yoast to Version 9.2.1.

The problem:

The problem is in the editor. The WordPress editor not works well. So i can't scroll down and use the tools in the editor in the same time, because the tools always stay up.

Also i cannot open and use the html editor. And there are problems when i will mark some text in bold.

The next problem is, that i can't edit the SEO Yoast Meta description down the content. It's impossible.

So i checket this issue in other pages without WPML plugin and there SEO by Yoast works well. I deactivated the WPML Plugin on my page and here also all works well.

So the problem is a trouble between WPML Plugin and SEO by Yoast.

Please have a look on this issue and let me know.

Thanks and regards,

Welcome to WPML Support.
I'll do my best to help you solve this issue.

This is a known issue and is already fixed but will be live in the next release of our plugin, but in the meantime we can offer you 2 workarounds:

1) Install the gutenberg plugin:

2) Revert to Yoast 9.1 by following this link:

I'm sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you but i hope these 2 workarounds will be useful to you while you wait for the next release of our plugins.

I just wanted to let you know that we just released WPML 4.1 which should solve the Yoast Problem, so, if you wish, you can update your WPML plugins (and Yoast) and let me know if you don't experience it anymore.
