(y) becomes _

Am I the only one where typing (y) in the Sametime chat windows doesn’t result in the yes-emoticon but an underscore instead? We’re seeing this across the office on Notes 8.0.1 Standard.

Update: Now 😀 also turn into an underscore instead of a grin-emoticon and apparently it happens in both ends of the conversation. Restarting the chat doesn’t solve the problem.

  1. Hi, this is probably due to incorrect entries in the emoticon palette. If you check maybe there’s a "text" entry in the palette that overrides the standard emoticon you expect? Or maybe you’ve checked that already?


  2. Both (y) and 😀 give me underscores in the 8.0.1 client. I tested in the 8.0 Connect client and this doesn’t happen. I exported the emoticon palettes from both and they look to be the same, so that’s not it.

    Interesting, if I type in (y)( then this is what I see in the chat window prior to hitting send: _(y)


  3. I just noticed this in my own client today; I don’t think it was happening up to now, though, as I think I’d have noticed it.  But maybe I just missed it.  I’m going to look into it, too, and will report back what I find.
