  • Hi Kagami,

    Would you mind helping by providing the keys I need to enter on US Standard keyboard?  I have installed the Korean IME and am aware how to enter for some multi-character input languages but need to learn for Korean.

    Also, can you verify that you still see the issue after the recent Windows 10 update?

    I copy and pasted the ‘서벌캣’ and followed the rest of your instructions that way and the result was ‘서벌캣 벌캣.’  Surveillance Cat - very cool!  I want one, however, I think it means serval?  Also, will take one of those.  :)

    A screenshot of the working result and the error result would help as well.

    Thank you for your submission and support,

  • Hi Steven,

    The US QWERTY map for ‘서벌캣’ is ‘tjqjfzot’ and I still see this issue on insider build 16176. A GIF will be uploaded in minutes. (It seems you love cats! :D)

  • Hi Kagami,

    Well, I love those two cats, ok and bengals.  Who wouldn’t want a surveillance cat? :-)

    The QWERTY map is very helpful.  Thank you for providing the instructions and the GIF, also very helpful.

    I was able to repro this in a current development build.  Thanks for the submission and the help,

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We used the attached public-testpage.html in Chrome to place focus in the contenteditable div first, then hit the “insert” key, then click inside the input element, and discovered that the input element is in overwrite mode. However, we are stuck in the overwrite mode even when we hit the “insert” key again. Firefox doesn’t respect the insert key at all. Therefore, we find Edge’s behavior is the most consistent and we do not plan to make any changes at this time.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team

  • Hmm. You said “By design” but I’m seeing this issue is fixed now in 16232. Previously the repro step resulted ‘서벌캣 벌캣’ but now I’m seeing the expected '서벌캣’.
