Microsoft has yet again confirmed another bug affecting the Windows 11 2022 Update, this time it causes the conversion of text in certain languages not to work well. This is likely to affect users typing in languages that use multibyte character sets such as Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.

According to Microsoft, “Text conversion occurs when a series of characters is transformed into different characters by means of user selection. This commonly involves additional Prediction candidate and Conversion candidate windows, which appear near the cursor position while typing.”

Here are a couple of things that you can look out for that will let you know if this bug is affecting your conversion of texts functionality:

  1. An incorrect range of characters is automatically selected for conversion, resulting in the conversion candidate window displaying unexpected options.
  2. The cursor might move to an unexpected position, resulting in the selection of the wrong sequence of characters for conversion. This can cause symptom 1.

Microsoft hasn’t provided a workaround for this issue, though it has indicated that it is working on a fix that s likely to be part of a future release. The Windows 11 2022 Update has had its fair share of issues this past year like unresponsive apps, printer not working, and broken Remote Desktop Connections.
