Autocorrect function in answer and comment boxes

+8 votes

The autocorrect function in answer and comment boxes likes to strip diacritical marks from letters. I have noticed that for German umlauts and the acutes on Czech vowels. Sometimes one has to go back twice to fix that which can be quite annoying when diacritical marks are needed frequently. Is there a way to turn this off?

Isnt the autocorrect function in your browser?!?!?

Please give an URL where you have the problem so we can understand better...

My browser is fine with respect to diacritical marks. It only happens in answer or comment boxes in G2G. I just pasted Václav here but it showed up as Vaclav and I had to go back in and manually replace the a with á. It only took one try but sometimes it reverts back and I have to do it twice before it takes. Quite annoying if there are many diacritical marks to post.

Test add Václav

I am right now using a PC with windows and a Chrome browser Version 50.0.2661.102 m no problems...

Maybe it is an interface problem with Internet Explorer 11. I'll try later from home with different browsers.

Testing: Václav äöüß

Ǎǎ Čč Ďď
Ěě Ǧǧ Ȟȟ
Ǐǐ ǰ Ǩǩ Ľľ
Ňň Ǒǒ Řř
Šš Ťť Ǔǔ
Ǚǚ Žž Ǯǯ

> I just pasted Václav here but it showed up as Vaclav and I had to go back in and manually replace the a with á.

Result: No problem here (Win7 & Firefox 50). Either by copy & paste your comment, as copy & paste from Wikipedia, as simply typing umlauts or diacritics.

Edit: Ah sorry, I overlooked that this topic is probably outdated. Not recognized the date.
