  1. Questions, Is your file containing the characters the same as the characters used in the video? And is it working if I test with my friends? And how exactly should I send it, I tried copying the whole text inside your notepad file but when I paste in a whatsapp conversation whatsapp crashes. Can you send a screenshot or a video of you testing it?
    Or can you tell me in details how it is like when you do it like I’ve noticed in the notepad that it’s the same word you’re repeating many times, so is the space between every word included? And should every word be on a seperate line or should I keep pasting the word? but in that way the word you used will be on each line 2 times and a part of it the third time I paste it. like: test test te (new line)st
    A screenshot of the conservation would answer most of the questions and if you can specify the number of times the word is used.
    Thanks.
