Description Michael 2017-11-06 17:25:54 UTC
In switzerland the german special character 'ß' ('long s') is never used, it does not exist. All occurences of 'ß' are replaced by 'ss'.

Especially there are the following replacement rules, which should be disabled for German (switzerland):
- Gruss -> Gruß
- Grüsse -> Grüße

Both of them (any maybe more) make your text wrong as you type. In general one would say, that all rules, which contain an 'ß' on the right hand side should be inverted to contain the 'ß' on the left side (and 'ss' on the right side) or at least they should be disabled.

Not sure with which version it started. Probably this is also affects other platforms.

All of the said above also comes true for German (Liechtenstein).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set localization for auto correction to Deutsch (Schweiz) / German (Switzerland)
2. Type the words Gruss and Grüsse

Actual Results:  
They are replaced by Gruß and Grüße.

Expected Results:
They should not be replaced by Gruß and Grüße.

Reproducible: Always
