Stop auto-adding period when double-spacing

david.allie 2 years ago in General updated 2 years ago 2

Aside from using Textastic for coding, I like to use it for keeping .txt files for simple notes. I’ve noticed that whenever I (on purpose) enter two or more spaces (e.g. to create a simple column table), a period is auto-added in the the first position of two spaces. This is annoying... seems more appropriate to a word processor than a code/text editor... and I wish there was a setting/preference to allow me to enable/disable this action.

Hello, you can change this by disabling the following setting in your device's settings:

General -> Keyboard -> "." Shortcut

Thank you, Alexander, for the VERY quick reply. That works perfectly for my needs. Thanks again!
