Full stop using spacebar on MacOS

I know some people find it annoying, but I use the double tab to make a full stop in a sentence a lot.

Wait, you mean software actually does this intentionally?  I had actually been thinking that had to be a bug, it is so stupidly annoying as I usually bump into that while typing monospaced text and using a series of spaces to align things for display on a terminal or some such...

Now that I know that, I finally went in and found that I can indeed turn it off. YES!!!

THANK YOU!  Getting rid of that will make life much easier!

I just checked and it works in textedit but not Publisher. 


MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7

Affinity Designer 1.10.5 | Affinity Photo 1.10.5 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.5 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Affinity doesn't use Apple's NSText framework for text objects.

Funnily though, it works in any input field – which are obviously based on NSText.
Let me introduce you to the workaround #3929:

  • use e.g. the Preferences > Filler Text input field as your "plain text notepad"!
