Hi,
Each time a write a double dash in Messages the text after the dashes disappears after I send the message. The recipient sees the full message for a second and then it disappears.
Ex. “Hi — my name is John Doe”.
The part “my name is John Doe” goes away.
Anyone else noticed this?

I experienced this issue yesterday on my iPad running 11.0.3. I sent a really long message that started with a preface and a double dash. I hit send and the entire rest of the message disappeared and i had to write it again. Recipient never got the long part. Just everything before the “—“
