    Off topic why the typos 12th Mar 18 at 12:57 PM
    What’s been the reason for typos on mse.com forum past few months.
    E.g. !!!8217;!!!!! Etc....
    Just wondering as finding these typos are interrupting my post as they are other posts from mser’s

    It's when typing from Apple Devices - something has gone wrong on the forum. Users need to turn off smart punctuation in settings

    This is a test reply to establish if de selecting 'Smart Puncuation' has resolved the !!!typo errors.
    All going well once I hit post reply then maybe Anna's advice has been successful not that there was any doubt.
