Typing issues

I'm not sure if this is an MR issue or general one, but I have a couple of irritations that I can't seem to fix when typing posts.

1. auto capitalisation does not work after a full-stop (period) or at the start of a post, even though I have this setting checked

2. and the one that is driving me crazy is that every time I use the ' character in words (as in it's) the system automatically puts in a space after the '. So I end up with it' s and keep having to go back and remove it.

Any ideas to fix these welcomed.

Along the top when typing it will give you words. Use them IF its what you typing then Contractions Have No Space! My caps work fine. I suggest yu check to see if caps is caps before you type. If not then manuely caps what you want.

I have no problem with spaces being inserted after '. I do have auto-correction turned off, though. That "feature" made me want to gouge my own eyes out with a grapefruit spoon.

I'll have a look at the words at the top, thanks, but I still think there must be a way to stop the blank from appearing. I can manually produce a cap, but it doesn't automatically do it even though I have that option checked in the Settings.

I have autocorrect off as well, as it drives me crazy too. Is that a blunt spoon?

Well, sorta. But it's pointier than a regular spoon and has just a bit of a serrated edge.

I've ran into the non capitalization problem every now and again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I've never been able to figure it out, though.

Does it happen for you in multiple browsers?
