(I know that the team is already aware of this issue, but I wanted to post this here for tracking and so other Cantonese learners are aware of the problem and the temporary work around.)


If you attempt to save a Cantonese passage with spaces in it or some rare Chinese characters, the "Save" button will spin indefinitely and the passage won't save. The rare Chinese characters also seem to cause failures to save when used in custom definitions and forum PM's.


The temporary work around is replace these characters with others (i.e. replace all spaces with a dash "-" for example).

I just noted that the issue with spaces seems to be fixed, thanks guys!

Odd Chinese characters is still a problem, but this is a big step forward in easy-of-use.

See the other thread, I'm getting the spinning Save button and all Chinese characters are converted into ? marks.

Even in the forums. Here is some Chinese I'm typing into this post's edit box: ???????

Sorry about that, a database change didn't go through in a maintenance window.

Confirmed! Everything seems to be working great. I added this text (containing all known issues) and it worked fine.
