    Totally agree. It's *really* annoying, and doesn't seem to be configurable anywhere.

    Thirding this.  This behavior just started for me yesterday.  Additionally, if you double-space before a colon, it still trims the preceeding space (so you get the one space you actually need), but appends another space, so when you type the closing parenthesis, it has a space between it and the colon.  Definitely appears to be a bug.

    I also second this. It's really annoying and messes up alle my smilies that start with a colon, especially as it inserts a space after the colon.

    This seems fixed in the latest version, guys! I just got an update and tried.

    I would MUCH prefer that the preceding space be removed, since I much more often am typing a colon in a sentence then I am for an emoji, and in the latter case typing two spaces prior to the colon would work just fine. Sounds like a good case for a user song, though, since it would appear (at least from this thread) that I'm in the minority.

    I was surprised that the spaces were not taken away, like with dots, and commas). It's just the convention: no space before the colon, and one space behind it.
    Would be nice if it could be arranged in the settings.

    Easy solution. If you manually add a space, the space should stay, but if a space is added automatically after a word and you type a colon or semicolon, thr space should be removed. A compromise between people who care about smiley faces and those who use punctuation as punctuation. I'm in the latter group and can't believe people think colon/semicolon behavior should be based on creating friggin smiley faces. But hey, I'm willing to compromise.

    I'm all for REMOVING the space before the colon/semicolon because this is how you punctuate in the English language. If people so strongly feel they want this "fixed", allow a setting you can choose to turn this "feature" on or off.

    An alternative fix to compromise with pro smiley people would be to automatically have no space before a colon/semicolon when you type a space after the colon/semicolon. That way, if you want some sort of smiley, any characters typed after the colon/semicolon would allow any sort of smiley you want whether it's :) :-) ;-) or what have you.

    The alternative fix looks to me as the perfect solution! Thanks Jason! Because how it is now is a nuisance.

    Having a switch in settings seems the better and more plausible solution to me. The alternative would force the colon to be delayed or moved after typing. And a setting could make the cursor and spacing behavior generally more conventional for people used to Swype, Gboard, or any other keyboard I know of. That is, put the cursor directly after last word typed. If you then type punctuation, don't add space first. If you type a new word, add space automatically. We can all agree that there should be a space between (non-compound) words.

    I also agree to this. This requires some solution. I think this alternative fix option would be perfect by this everyone will be happy .
