ChatGPT removes colons ":" and everthing that follows it from user prompts and GPT answers

In Finnish language we use a lot of colons. Like a question “Who knows about the ERP?” would translate “Kuka tietää ERP:stä?”. But when I type that in and send the query, it reads “Kuka tietää ERP”. Basically ChatGPT is removing everything after (and including) the colon.

The same happen’s when it’s trying to type Finnish. Before GPT-4o when I used GPT-4 this worked normally, but now all the GPT generated answers are missing everything after the colon and the end result doesn’t look like my language at all anymore and need’s a lot of cleaning making the GPT much less usable than before.

Hi!
You are correct that there is a weird bug with text following colons.

We did some community investigations and found that the text exists, it’s just not being rendered…

Yes this is what I was expecting also because it’s grammatically correct but just not rendered. So it seems that the model itself is working properly but the UI somehow not.

Is there any solution or workaround for this?

Hi!
If my recall is correct the issue does not arise if there is a space between the colon and whatever follows next.
That’s an idea for a potential workaround.

Regarding when this issue will be fixed: I do not know.
