Ticket #1770 (accepted defect)
Write behavior using the keyboard switching key on XO
|Reported by:||reuben||Owned by:||sayamindu|
|Priority:||High||Milestone:||Unspecified by Release Team|
"On bilingual XOs, the times/divide key is replaced with a keyboard switching key."
On an XO with an Arabic keyboard. Open Write. Type some words. The words appear in X language. Press the keyboard switch key..You expect words to be written in Y language but the result is garbage. Close Write. Open Write. Type some words. The result is Y language. Press the keyboard switch key. The result is garbage. Close and Open Write and the result is X language. Essentially, you must close and reopen write whenever you want to use the keyboard switch key.
This is difficult to reproduce if you don't have an XO with a bilingual keyboard. Does anyone have any hints how it could be reproduced with a normal US/Intl KB?
This has been a long standing bug. It is a high priority for deployments in the middle east. A bounty (TBD) for the resolution of this bug may be offered.
