I frequently use Google Docs for school revision on-the-go, and I have to scroll down pages of course material when reading. Sometimes, I accidentally double-tap the page and this triggers the app to go into editing mode; this brings up the keyboard as well and is quite vexing, the only way to switch back to viewing mode is to either press the (back) button or the tick symbol on the top-left corner.

I can't find the setting of this in Google Drive and in Google Docs, I searched the Internet and found nothing.

How do I disable this feature?
