I’ve just started on a course in Python and I’ve stumbled onto something that annoys me. It’s regarding the double quotation mark. Often, not always, when I hit Shift+2 I create TWO double quotation marks, like this: “”
If I continue to press Shift+2 the following will happen:
- On 2nd click I will still have two double quotation marks “”
- On 3rd click I will have SIX double quotation marks… “”""""
- On 4th click I will still have six double quotation marks. “”""""
- On 5th and onwards, it will simply add 1 mark per click. “”"""""…""""""""""""
Note: This is happening for me in programs like word, notepad++ and the script.py Im currently using, not everywhere (fx not in the chrome browser nor does it happen while creating this topic)
(It is clearly trying to create both the starting and ending symbol for the quote, leaving me to type inside… Which I miss/don’t notice and end up having 2 individual, empty quotes and what I belive is called a syntax error)
Ideally I would like that 1 click of Shift+2 created 1 symbol of the double quotation marks. I’ve googled this extensively and couldn’t find an answer. Also, please note that this is not the issue where I have to press twice or hit space bar for the symbol to appear - I have checked my keyboard/language settings in windows and everything seems to be in order.
Im don’t think I could explain the situation further or in more detail.
Thank you for reading all this.
Fair warning, I wont be able to check the forum untill the 6th August, don’t think Ive forgotten about this tho.
Have I posted this in the wrong Category/Topic/Section? Excuse me.
