Automatic Period Insertion after Spaces

Hello everyone,

A period is automatically inserted in front of my spaces (or after the last word the new spaces are inserted) whenever they are inserted one immediately after another. If a short pause is in between, the period is not inserted.

I find this behavior is really, really annoying. It is as if I am writing a novel and the IDE helps me when I forgot to end my sentence with a period.

But, for god’s sake, I am writing lines of codes!

Is there a way to turn this feature off?

Is not a Xojo feature but a macOS feature.


Thank you very much!
