When using the US-International keyboard layout,
if you want to enclose selected text with quotes, single quotes or back-quotes by typing
them, the originally selected text is deleted.
I have both the ISO and ANSI US/international keyboard, and I can type all of the
following quotes without using dead keys: ‘…’, “…”, "…", '…', and `…`.
I can confirm that this also happens with the standard French layout with the ` backtick,
the selected text just disappear. As the OP says, not a really harmful, significant bug, I
just want to confirm that there's an issue.
insignificant bug, I know :p and I can certainly live with it, so this is mostly for
information. It's good to know someone knows it's there :-)
I fear it would be rather complex to do a workaround for this because we would need to
delay overtyping a selection when we detect the user starts a complex input sequence, and
for most users I imagine this would be undesired (not seeing the selection immediately
A quick fix (IMHO, I'm no expert on the text system) would be to make dead keys be
handled as normal keys as soon as you have something selected — the rationale being that
if you're actually trying to overtype a missed accent, you wouldn't rewrite a
whole bunch of stuff. But there be dragons ;-).
