    Double space in mail app not replaced with a period and single space

    Doesn't work for me on real keyboard but works with the touch keyboard.

    Even a space after the end of word it doesn't add period. So double tapping immediately after the end of word, it adds a period.

    Should also work with real keyboard when connected to tablet but its not. Is it supposed to work this way only?
