Why are ... (three dots) get smaller?

  1. Whenever I type '...' (three dots), they become smaller than '.' (a single dot). If I type .... (four dots), the first three get smaller. But '..' (two dots), they stay as big as one dot. All I want is that the three dots I type keep stay as big as one dots.

  2. The ellipses ... has a specific meaning.
    In formal writing, the most common way to use an ellipsis is to show that you’ve omitted words.
    In blogging ellipses ... means click to read the full post.
    Note also that these brackets {} have s specific meaning in computer programming language and you are using them inappropriately as well.

  3. Yes, that's what I want to show by typing the three dots (like when someone is talking and someone else cuts in). So is there a way to keep the dots' size still the same as when I only type one dor/

    About {}, does that mean that you recommend me not to use it? In the EGP post, I use them ( "[ ]" and "< >") to indicate different talkers.

  4. I don't know of a way to deal with the size issue.
    I recommend that you don't use any special characters at all. Instead I recommend using conventional punctuation and grammar.

  5. I use ".." (double dots) now.
    And "{{ }}" instead of "{ }".
    Hope this won't conflict with programming language. :)
    Thank you timethief.
