When I try and strike through, my - changes to — when I try to do the two next to each other.
This is a new thing, I’m on iOS on the app. Please can you help me? I’m lost without my sarcastic mumbling ability grin

—I can’t strikeout either—
—I thought it was a plot by MNers who don’t like others using strikeout—

Thanks for raising! We're aware of this bug - it's an issue introduced in iOS 11 and we have a fix coming. In the meantime, this will fix it on your device:
1. Settings > General > Keyboard
2. Switch 'smart punctuation' to off

This will prevent your device automatically replacing '--' with '—'

I had trouble doing a strike through a couple of days ago. I am now going to test your advice after altering keyboard settings

I've just released an update to the iOS Talk app on the App Store here - this should fix the dash bug, but I think the bold issue is still a problem.

Let us know if there are any issues with this new build!
