Can't input interpunct in Catalan

Interpunct or flown dot in Catalan, is a character that goes in between two l's in some Catalan words: goril·la, paral·lel (usually words that have 2 l's in English).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpunct#Catalan.


It is currently impossible to input this character in WRIO Keyboard, so it would be great if it were available as a diacritic or something.


My suggestions are:

- As a diacritic for l, or even better, add 'l·l' as a diacritic for l when Catalan is enabled, the same way ñ (Spanish) is a diacritic of n, and ç of c (French and Catalan).

- As an alternate character for *, since it is also useful as a multiplication dot, for instance in the scalar product in maths


I'd love to see it in both places.


Thanks

Hi Adria,


Thanks for letting us know. In the coming update we will include the dot-mark in the special chars layout. We'll also add a diacritic "Ŀ" on the l-letter for now. In the future, we can add the l·l combo, but this requires a change in the algorithm (which we're doing anyway) so that the longpress can type multiple letters and that the auto correction still works properly with it.


I'll mark it as closed.


Cheers,

David
