Drawing Handakuten


#1

When drawing kana, how do you enter handakuten? I’ve tried both CW and CCW circles, and just tapping, but nothing seems to work. (Dakuten works just fine.)

Edited to add: I forgot to mention I’m using the Android beta client.


#2

Either way should work, though I personally write CW from the top middle of a 半濁点. Have you tried writing this smaller or bigger to see if it responds differently?


#3

CW from top middle is what I instinctively do as well. When one finally came up again, I tried a variety of sizes from as small as possible to the size of the canvas, but nothing registered.


#4

This just came up in a team discussion as well! We’re working on improving the recognition for this, sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Thanks! Good to hear. Fortunately those sounds are rarely seen without some kanji clothing.
