Unlike English keyboard , there is a word selection after we spell it. But after we press Enter to select, the cursor in Rem goes to a new line which completely disables me to use.

That’s it!
When will RemNote support Chinese input? :neutral_face:

When I select the candidate word after typing, the cursor always appear at the beginning of the sectence, but in the iPhone, this bug is disappear.
by the way, typing Chinese words, and using iPad pro, OS 14.

Hi! When I try to create a card in Korean, all the letters try to go backwards, and I cannot create a remnote that goes forwards. As soon as I switch my keyboard to Korean it moves the cursor around and starts typing backwards.
Has anyone else experienced this? How can I work around this?

I am typing a lot of Vietnamese and I also have some problems. The cursor jumps around and sometimes I’m suddenly at the beginning of the line. Or the cursor suddenly disappears and I type nowwhere and have to click on the position again. Never had this issue with English.

I have this same issue with Chinese and Korean as well. It seems to be a bug with non-Latin characters. This issue is mentioned here as well: https://www.reddit.com/r/remNote/comments/hg3qcp/chinese_text_support_bug/

What distro and Input Method do you use to type Vietnamese…?

thanks, got the same problem, no way to fix it.

I’m having same problem with Safari.
But at least with Chrome, it’s fine so far.

If possible, I would also like to suggest for the search function to work like how it does on Google Docs/Sheets. I don’t really study vocabulary this way (I just pasted it on to RemNote to show how the search function does not really find everything that I’m looking for).

Also in another instance, where I can’t find the exact word I’m trying to put in a portal.

However, I can when I switch to typing in English.


It (support for non-latin input methods) would make the workflow a bit better if there was a way to make the search/filter recognize input in other languages as well.


I hope these screenshots try to explain what I’m trying to say. I realized I could not attach a video and the gif was kind of illegible.


edit //
The search function, such as below, does not work well.

Hope Remnote supports Chinese.
In China, a large number of users have the habit of using notes, but the language problem is the most basic threshold. I believe RN will gain more than expected after supporting Chinese.
