How do I correct unwanted period after backspace?

Hi. I'm not sure if I'm in the right type of forum, but I have had no luck finding an answer. I have this odd problem of when I want to double space, I get an unwanted period. For example, if I have a colon with two spaces after colon, this is what happens:

:.

It backspaces and inserts a period, all on its own.

Has anyone encountered this before?

Thanks so much, Kelli

My iPhone does that, so I bet it is a feature of some software you are using. Is this happening on a PC and does it happen everywhere (while using notepad for example)? Check your keyboard software as a starters.

You can also try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

It does happen everywhere, and it interferes with an expander program I use as a transcriptionist. I will check your suggestions.

Thank you.
