    Punctuation being Auto-Corrected?

    Hello!

    When typing a message, my phone autocorrects the punctuation I type. If I am trying to type a sentence reading "It costs $20", it autocorrects the sentence to "It costs$ 20". Any symbol I type gets moved back to the last word I typed.

    A sentence reading:
    It is "cool"
    gets changed to:
    It is" cool"

    I've checked my settings and auto-punctuate and auto-correct are turned off. I am using the physical keyboard.

    Is there any way to disable this feature?

    Thanks so much!

    Sadly, no ideas; only an observation.

    If you try to type the following;
    It is "cool"

    you get;
    It is" cool"

    If you type
    It is "<backspace x2><space>"cool", it works.

    I do not know why it force-corrects once, then decides that you know what you are doing after.

    Thats odd. I don't have that happen when I try typing: It is "Cool"
    It just shows up the way I typed it using the physical keyboard. I wonder if anyone else is having that issue. I don' believe i've changed any settings for auto correct.

    Yes, I reported this same problem on the Moto forum here:

    https://supportforums.motorola.com/m.../241266#241266

    The designated Moto rep (Matt) had replied that he would pass on the info, presumably to the engineering team.

    Ya it's super annoying, and it makes me want to not punctuate my sentances except I don't like looking stupid.

    By the way... I know that the majority of complaints I've read about this refer to the D2 and the physical keyboard, but this happens on my DroidX as well, and I don't have a physical keyboard.
