gotta ask - duplicating letters while typing....
Posted by Mrchntmarine on Friday, January 1, 2021 10:15 AM

so i have a 1 year new Mac book pro whose keyboard has been replaced due to duplicating letters while typing.  Its a known issue on some older macs and this model has a new keyboard design and the problem was suppose to not be issue on this model.  So, im still getting duplicating letters at times - but it seems to be only on this site!?!

Ok, weird - but does anyone else get duplicating letters on this site while posting?

Not sure how that would even be, but ive got to ask as i running out of ideas of trying to figure this out.

No, I can't say it's something I've noticed - have you tried logging in using another device?

i do use other devices and cant seem to remember it happening.  On my mac i dont seem to see it happen but on this site.  However - that would be really weird but had to ask.  The keyboard has been replaced after the device was suposedly wiped and the problem has been reoccurring after some time.  I also recently myself overlayed a new OS to see if that would make a difference and ive not see the issue until recently, on this site.  If it continues to happen on other sites/apps, im going to maybe update to Big Sur and it it sill happens, maybe ill wipe it clean myself and reinstall.....  I really dont want to send it backk in as the turn around is weeks.  FOR EXAMPLE - notice the "kk" in back.

I think it's an issue with iOS systems on the site. When I try replying with my iPhone, currently a 12 Pro, I have an issue with letters I type dropping. It's not an autocorrect issue either. I had the same problem with my previous iPhone. I try to post on the site using my Microsoft Suface laptop, because of the issue when using my phone, and don't have the same problem.

I tend to type long replies in a text editor, then cut & paste into the site.

Yep, i use other devices but not with or at least not much with (or when on) this site.  On my windows pc and wife's macbook pro and on my old imac w/ magic keyboard dont seem to have spelling errors(as much) and no repeating letters.  Maybe ill try only to use the pc laptop for a week when getting on to see if it happens.  Drives me nuts.

so its happened again on the mbp on another site while typing a web based message.  So im guessing its an ios software issue or hardware keyboard issue.  Gonna have to send it to apple again for repair im guessing.
