Sanskrit - Veda Devanagiri Keyboard

I am trying to use the Keyman keyboard to type in Sanskrit. Everytime I type a letter whatever i typed earlier goes away and only the last letter that I type remains. could u please guide me on how this could be avoided. Like every letter stays without being overwritten.

Thank you.

Can you give the specific name of the keyboard you are having the issue with? Which one of these is it?

An example of how this issue happens would also be helpful.

Thank you. Its Keyman 14.0.

For eg: when I have to type a word, every letter overwrites the other letter. so as mentioned in my original message only the last letter remains.If I have to type वनभुवः only व remains…

I guess this keyboard (Vedic Sanskrit Devanagari Phonetic (ITRANS) keyboard) is the keyboard you are using because I can replicate the behavior you described.

With this keyboard, I’ve tried and typed kakhaga:

  1. in Notepad, the output is कखग (expected)
  2. in Calc of LibreOffice v7.0.5.2, कखग (expected)
  3. in Excel of MS Office Pro Plus 2016 v2106, the output is ग (unexpected)

This probably is a bug in Excel, but I’ve logged this issue here so that we can keep track of it.

I can confirm that this behavior also happens when using other Sanskrit keyboard, i.e. The Heidelberg Input Solution keyboard.

Yes, this is the same as #944.
