SimulateType and Special Characters

"When I use simulate type, certain characters are consistently not being written"

or

“I am unable to use the ‘’ character while using SimulateType”

Identify the character in question that cannot be written, and determine whether or not the character or characters are a reserved sequence.

This issue is common when customers are using the SimulateType attribute to type passwords that are programmatically generated with special characters. 'p@$$//0rd', for example, may behave abnormally given it uses a pair of '/' sequences.

The solution is to avoid using the failing characters if possible, or to avoid using SimulateType if possible for strings that contain special character combinations.
