problem replacing character with accented character using BT keyboard

Urban Kravjanský 7 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 years ago 3

When replacing selected character (or group of characters) with accented character using bluetooth keyboard, accent alone replaces the selection and following character is selected. If I continue writing, this selected character is replaced with accented version of last entered character.

For example if I want to change word "banan" into "banán" by selecting second "a", I will end up with word "ban'á".

Is the behavior different when you try to do that in another app like Apple's Notes?


Can you tell me step for step what I have to do to reproduce the problem and how it differs from other apps?

I will try to explain in on shorter word, e.g. word "že".


Writing in Apple's Notes:

  1. write "ze" without accent above "z" character.
  2. select "z" character
  3. press "ˇ" accent - accent in highlighted rectangle replacing original letter is displayed
  4. press "z" character - highlighted rectangle is replaced with letter "ž"
  5. result is word "že"
Writing in Textastic:
  1. write "ze" without accent above "z" character.

  2. select "z" character
  3. press "ˇ" accent - accent alone replacing original letter is displayed, the next letter in word is selected (highlighted) automatically
  4. press "z" character - selected letter is replaced with letter "ž"
  5. result is word "ˇž"
When just writing new next, accents work just fine. The problem occurs only in case of replacing selected text by selecting and typing over it.

Thanks for the detailed description! I'll try to fix it in an update.
