Apple cannot spell
i almost used the conjunction in the title but when I do this from my iPad it comes out can?t. Whenever I do a quote or an apostrophe and post here it becomes a question mark. Anyone know how to change this or do a workaround? I even tried RDP into my work PC and it changed it again.

I usually stay up to date but checked anyway and I am. I?d say it is just this forum and it?s code but can?t be sure of that as this is the only place I post anything on the internet anymore.

Chuck, technically, I think that's punctuation, not spelling. An important difference if you are planning to sue Apple to finance the site in perpetuity. (With a healthy stipend for the moderator and enough money to buy a Caribbean island for some lawyer. )

Valid point, but isn't punctuation, when part of a contraction, technically spelling? Thanks for the input on this weighty situation.

So as a point of fact, this last post came from a PC, hence the apostrophe worked!

So right there you've got the perfect solution. By a real computer and quit using one of those fruity wanna'bees.

I am not a Apple Guru nor do I have an IPad to check if the "Smart Punctuation" setting is there, but try the do the following in the IPad Setting to see if it works at correcting your issue.
Go to Settings > General > Keyboard, and then turn off the ?Smart Punctuation? toggle.
