Recently I have been made aware of another difference between opening a document and a cut-and-paste operation. When a document contains "optional hyphens" they are printed in Braille as two cells containing dots 3 and 5 when cut-and-pasted into a document, they are dropped when opening the Word file directly. I have attached our current "torture" file for the beta process. This contains all of the characters we have historically experienced problems with. In this file there are some corrected errors as well as some current issues. The corrected errors are tabs and quotes (thank you very much). In addition to the optional hyphens, the apostrophe character is still giving us some trouble. When cut-and-pasted in, DBT translates this to two cells, one cell is dots 3, 5, and 6 and the other is dot 6. This is similar to a single ending quote, but the second cell is a dot 6 rather than a dot 3. While this is still not an apostrophe, I am wondering if this is a valid Braille character at all, or if this represents two issues? If it is a valid character, which character is it?
This document was pasted into Beta 6.
Thank you very much for working on this! The progress on these issues are very much appreciated!
