Typo errors for œ

I wrote sœur and it was underlined as a typo. The ‘correct’ answer was given as soeur. Anyone else getting typo notifications for using œ?

That's strange. I wonder if it has anything to do with the new French tree (which I don't have yet). I suggest reporting it for now and hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I don’t have the new french tree yet either, so it cannot be that. I am not even sure what box to tick for reporting an error in the typo suggestions.

Which sentence, please? Or if you don't remember the sentence, which skill? A screenshot would be nice too, if possible.

Sorry, I don’t have a screenshot. The skill was Imparfait (in the old tree, as I don’t have the new tree yet).

I think I found it: "Ma sœur disait que tu es trop vieux pour elle." It's fixed now, thanks. It's most likely an isolated instance. We generally try to be good with including options for all ligatures, but bulk edits are not 100% guaranteed to work.

Thanks, Georgeoftruth! Yes, that was it! to be honest I am often lazy about typing the “œ” so I wasn’t sure if it was just a one sentence thing, or all around which is why I wrote this post. Thanks for fixing it so quickly!
