Translation unit markers edit
Dear Mrb Rafi,
- Hi @Pols12, thanks a lot for the message. I'm a lil bit embarrassed with this. I know that they are markers which are required to specify translation units. But being honest, I didn't remove these markers in an informed wayǃ ː)
- Ameisenigel also reverted one of my edits, when I noticed this, I was surprised - when did I do thisǃ ː")
- I'm facing some weird issues with the meta wiki source editor. When I copy paste texts from another doc, in a lot of places, the text pastes double; I have corrected them several times. When I type "@", it turns into something else - ̊ . When I type "[[", it also turns into something else - ʽ . Colons also don't work. -- BIDROHI Hello.. 05:37, 25 June 2023 (UTC)
- Those changes come from Input tools which help writing IPA symbols. If you don’t need them, you should disable Input tools:
- Click on your language in the top of the page.
- Click the cogwheel icon in right bottom corner of the frame.
- Click the left “Input” tab.
- Click “Disable input tools” blue button.
- If you need them, you can temporary switch off the IAP typing shortcuts with Ctrl+M shortcut, or through keyboard icon in right corner of the text area.
- That should solve the issue you meet with colons and brackets. However, that tool should never remove the unit markers; so this issue may have another reason. -- Pols12 (talk) 12:14, 25 June 2023 (UTC)
- Hi @Pols12, thanks a lot again. I've disabled the input tools and now the symbols are working perfectly!
- I'm also not sure what is causing the translation marker or the double paste issue. I will never remove those translation markers without any reason. I have worked to tag 2/3 pages for translation and I know how much patience I need to do this. I will try to be careful so that these markups don't get removed unintentionally. -- BIDROHI Hello.. 15:11, 25 June 2023 (UTC)
- Those changes come from Input tools which help writing IPA symbols. If you don’t need them, you should disable Input tools:
This newsletter combines content from both June and July, due to a delay in sharing out the previous newsletter.
