    When I try to enter a double quote mark, ie, “, I have to follow it with a space or the next character gets an omlaut. All I want is a double quote mark when and where I type it.
    How can I disable this behaviour?
    Thanks… Bob

    Hi Bob,

    I never encounter this problem.
     
    This looks like you have set a snippet(*) with a quote mark as trigger?
     
    And, you should always mention your environment to help tracking this down:
    OS?, Bitness?, Language?, EE version?, portable or installed? Which configuration/Syntax? Where do you enter the quote? …? …?

    Hi Stefan,
    Not unreasonable to want to know version etc:
    Win 7
    64 bits
    EE Version 14.4.2
    English
    To my knowledge I have no snippets
    This is a recently rebuilt after a crash computer. Previously I had the same version. This was a clean, new install.
    It is as if there is an accenting feature turned on:
    Enter the sequence: double quote and space > get a double quote
    Enter the sequence: double quote and E > get an E with umlaut Ë
    Enter the sequence: double quote and A > get an A with umlaut Ä
    There could be a windows “Feature” that is doing this.
    Thanks… Bob

    The answer is: My win7 was shipped with the US-International Keyboard. When changed to just US the problem goes away.

    Hmm, this could be a macro with event “Character Inserted” or like that.
    Check menu “Macros > Customize…” if there is a macro listed which have a event assigned.

     
    Or perhaps you run a “automation” tool like AutohotKey or like that.
    Check from Task Manager (Crl+Shift+Esc)
     
     
    Are you the only one who work on this PC? ;D

     
     I get no better ideas right now…

    Hi Stefan, I solved it. See my other posts. Perhaps our postings crossed in the ether,

    Thanks… Bob
