The first letter of Chinese will always be repeated after typing it !

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

The steps of adding input method in Windows 10

Press Ctrl+i to enter settings in Windows 10, and then type (language settings) in the search bar.
And then follow the pictures below.

To reproduce the typing problems, you can press Win+Space to switch input method to Chinese Simplified.

After that, you can try to type anything you want in blender in any areas, then you will see the problems occur.

NOTE: Please also remember to switch the language preference in blender to Chinese too, because after i try a few times, I realise that I cannot even type Chinese in English language preference.

Hey Richard Antalik, Thanks for your help anw. May i ask you what is the version of your Win10? My current version is listed below.

As I know, after updating to Win10 2004, the input method UI is not the one you provided from the picture, and I currently don't have a old version PC to test that , so i guess maybe the problem is caused by the new Microsoft Input Method .

Thanks for your patience in advance >_<

2004 is available for me, so I will give it a try again
