Copying conversation from https://chat.zulip.org/#narrow/stream/issues/topic/ligatures
If you type something with two f’s and then left arrow back over it, you get somewhat strange behavior, since the ff is turned into a ligature.
I managed to get stranger behavior as well by using backspace instead of left arrow, though I don’t have a repro at the moment. If we turn off ligatures, would that break accented characters? (fwiw, slack and gchat seem to handle the ff case fine)
I have been able to reproduce the left arrow thing (or any other attempt of moving the cursor between both f’s). The cursor stays after the last f, but if you type the text appears between them.
Something curious also happens if you click between both f’s. The cursor should appear between the f’s, but it doesn’t. Actually, if you type new text, it appears after the ligature.
This happens in the compose box, search boxes, edit box, etc.
@brockwhittaker in case you want to take a look.
