  5. Anyone have a weird ENTER key…


Anyone have a weird ENTER key error when typing a long translation in practice mode?

So I was doing timed practice just now, and imagine my horror after typing all of ¨The boys were at my sister´s house Thursday night¨ into Spanish and with zero seconds left, finding that it started a new line rather than submitting my answer when I pressed ENTER. I wish I could have filmed my reaction to that; it would've made a great video.

As far as I can tell, that means you've already run out of time. It only ever happens to me when the clock's at zero.


It's happened to me with time left, two or three times I've had enough time to realize what was happening, grab the mouse, click on the "enter" button and continue with the practice. It does seem to only happen with long sentences, though.
