Thread: ¿ and space

  1. #1

    ¿ and space

    In spanish we use the "¿" sign at the beginning of a question. If you swype from ¿ to space as shortcut, it inserts an space after the ¿. Is it possible to disable it only with this punctuation mark?
    Thanks

    Hello viva-yo,

    We know that this is a bit problematic at the moment and apologize for the inconvenience. We'll be fixing this in a future update.

    For now, you can stick with long pressing on the ¿ key instead of using the gesture.

    Thank you for your report!

    Thanks, Jacob, I'll wait for the update, any news?
    I also wanted to notice that this also happens with the Spanish sign "¡"

    Little mistake in spanish punctuation

    Hello!
    I speak spanish and I write in spanish with my friends.
    The punctuations symbols in spanish are bad configured, I mean, in english when you write and interrogation mark "?" is followed by a word (without a space between the symbol and the word) like for example: Hello? between the question mark and the word there is not a space like : hello ? in spanish we have two questions marks and the mistake is in the first one. We should write ¡Hola! but with your keyboard there is an incorrect space between the first punctuation and the word, your keyboard writes: ¡ Hola! as default. You have to delete this space everytime you write a question or exclamation mark.

    So, tu sum up:

    Correct punctuation (or how it should be): ¡Hola!
    Swype incorrect punctuation by default(or how swype does): ¡ Hola! (notice that there is a space between the symbol and the word)


    The mistake is with these two punctuation symbols: ¡ ¿

    Hi Makarboy,

    We know that incorrect spacing can be frustrating when you're trying to enter text. We're aware of this bug (the fact that an inverted question mark or exclamation point sometimes enters a space before the next word) and have already come up with a fix! We will be releasing this fix in a future version of Swype.

    Thank you

    Hello again viva-yo,

    The good news is that the fix is in place for future versions, the bad news is that it's just not out there on devices yet. We apologize for any inconvenience and recommend that you use a long press when using ? and !.

    Thank you

    So Nuance found a fix but has no plans to release it. Very odd.

    To clarify, what I meant was that we have fixed the issue, but the fix hasn't been incorporated into production versions of Swype yet.

    Sorry for any confusion
