I recently learned the vocabulary for 寸, which is an old (?) Japanese metric that is equal to 3.03 centimeters.
However, the vocabulary either gave me the option to write “sun”, “three point zero three centimeters”, “three centimeters” or “three point oh centimeters”. Since I love being precise while also enjoying being able to use my hands after having burned this vocabulary, I decided to add two new options as an extra synonym for easier typing: “3.03 centimeters” and “3.03 cm”.
Seems fair enough, however when I typed this in my Apprentice 2 review, I was blocked from typing in any dots, forcing me to write 303 cm.
It’s not the most pressing matter, but why am I not allowed to use periods? Is there some reason behind this interpunction dysfunction? Or does Koichi have a secret hate of ellipses and wants to prevent us writing it by all means necessary? Please help!
