New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is the kind of miserable behaviour I . H A T E .
I am to insert various PUA characters in the text, either via a customized keyboard or the glyph palette. In the case of *some* characters they only appear when getting typed if a certain other character or a space precedes it. E.g., one particular char. doesn’t show up when I want to insert it just after a paranthesis. But ID seems then to insert some kind of dead character, which you notice when pressing the delete key. There is no OT fancies turned on. ID playes a game of cat-and-mouse with me and I don’t see why.
I have no clue about what I am doing wrong this time.
– it is not the font
– it is not the keyboard driver (which works fine generally)
– no dead keys or combining sequences involved
– all works perfectly well in TextEdit.
Has anyone a clue to this?
