Someone with the handle ano21 sent me via the contact link the following question:
I created a keyboard with a dead key whose character number is >1000. When the keyboard is compiled, the key no longer works as a dead key; when I hit it, the character is typed twice!
Now if I change the character number to anything below 1000 and compile the keyboard again, the dead key works well.
Are you aware of this problem? Is there a fix to it?
Thank you very much.
To be honest, I really can't reproduce the problem in question with any of the code points I tried. Unless of course the point was code points > 0xFFFF, in which case (as I mentioned here and here) the answer is that it can't be done.
But the question suggests that we are talking about U+1001 to U+FFFF, not U+10000 to U+10FFFF. And I am just not seeing that sort of a problem here....
Is someone else?
Or ano21, if you are reading, do you have more specific steps to reproduce the problem?
