I am unable to reproduce this I tried on an iPad Air with Safari on CourseMill.
If you can please post a sample title you see this problem with. The smaller the better. Also let me know what LMS you are using.
Have you tried publishing with v18? You can download and install v18 and it will co-exist with v17. Remember to copy the title directory (backup) the titles before opening with v18 as this will upgrade the title and you can no longer use the title with v17.
