Thread: how to denote letters which I failed to copy?

while going through the lessons, I fail to copy letters every now and then. How should I type in these letters that I missed? I tried inserting a 'space character' but it seems the program stops processing the line as soon as it hits a space.

I have also tried inserting a question mark to denote letters missed.

I am still on lesson 11, so inserting a question mark or any other letter which I have not learnt serves the purpose. But, I was wondering if there was some other way to denote such letters.

I just skip the letter and keep going. You are right a space is the wrong thing to do.

I would suggest a sign that is not in the usual codeset .. so the questionmark is not really suitable ... but I guess something like "<" will do a good job (on the german keyboard this has a seperat key)

Either skip it (i.e. just neter a group with 4 letters) or enter *any* letter. Even if you just enter a "?", which sooner or later will be part of the character set, there is nothing to lose. With a chance of 1 out of 40 it may even be correct :-)

In my experience, I rather just miscopy letters instead of completely missing them. If I am not sure, whether it is e.g. "S" or "H", I try not to think about it and just hit either of them.

Hello. The "normal" way by copying with a pencil is to mark this faulty with a dot on the paper. Why not do it here also? "." and than go on.
