For some reason while I have no I have no problem with bold, italics or underline,
—strikethrough— has recently stopped working for me.

Can anyone enlighten me?

It’s the iOS update which turns two - in to one —

Any way to resolve? Or am I stuck with it?

Ah, that's interesting. The same thing happened to me. Thought it was my error.

I'm assuming there will be some way
Of changing it in autocorrect settings, but it's really annoying! My iPhone is currently off for an insurance replacement because the touch stopped working, but it will be the first thing I figure out when I get it back. Have they never heard of mumsnet? !

Cheers, Bore! grin

Obviously, this is a bit of a nuisance... We'll flag to our tech and see if there's anything that can be done, though if it's an update then our hands may be tied...

“if it's an update then our hands may be tied”

You can make the shortcut for strikethrough something other than two dashes?

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!
