I have about a million words that need correcting in my Custom Dictionary but editing the damn thing is nearly impossible. Why can't they implement a way for us to make multiple selections instead of scrolling us all the way back to the top of the list upon deleting an entry? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
I do not have the option for "User Dictionary" when I press the settings key (button that looks like a gear at the bottom left of keyboard). I think its because of my location. I'm from Singapore and the keyboard that comes with it is a "CN Thai Keyboard". The settings button has a "abc" or "<chinese character>" below the "gear" symbol that toggles between chinese or english input when pressed. If held, some chinese input entry method options appear. No sight of an option to edit my user dictionary.
I want to edit the dictionary to remove wrongly spelled words I accidentally entered. I know the majority of you guys have another keyboard that came with your phone, and prob don't have this problem, but just wondering if someone from this forum might know..
I've looked for other threads about editing Swype's dictionary but have found none, so will ask here: I love using Swype Lite (184.108.40.20628) but have found the dictionary and the little word options popup to be less than helpful. I've tried to add words individually per the instructions saying to add each letter carefully then press the space bar, but the new word doesn't seem to be available the next time. And when I do try to enter 1 letter at a time it automatically adds another letter and spaces to each of the letters I'm trying to tap in. I would love to know if I can access Swype's dictionary through the SD card or wherever, and go in there and edit the shit out of it. Anybody know how, or if it's possible?
Enjoying the Legend. Surprised it did not come with a default notes app but after trying a couple Astrid works well.
For reading the forum it seemed people thought with sense 2.1 that one would be able to edit the dictionary. I can;t find a way to do this? It would be nice to edit/delete the misspelled words inadvertently added.
Am I losing my mind, or is it not possible to add words with apostrophes into the custom dictionary? The key word here is "we'll." I use that word all the time, and for that word not to be a suggested word when you type "well" is balls-out crazy. Oddly, on plain Android 2.1, if you type "well," the first suggestion you get is "we'll." Yet, on HTC Sense, there is no "we'll." And to make matters worse, you cannot add it Why? This is just like the "ill" and "I'll" relationship. HTC Sense has "I'll," and in fact, will default to "I'll" if you start a sentence with "ill." But nothing for "well."
Hey guys I was curious if there was a way to delete the custom dictionary from my HTC EVO. I have accidentally added words in there that I misspell all the time and now have to go back and manually fix them.
I've got a few custom words in my text messaging dictionary (I'm using Handcent SMS) and some of them are accidental additions from the early days of my Hero when my on-screen keyboard skills were a bit epileptic! How can I delete individual words from my dictionary?
Is it possible to create a custom dictionary for an edittext? In other words, can I create a custom list and have the edittext only suggest names from that list? I don't need it popping up useless word suggestions when the user is inputting specific names of people.
With my BlackBerry Storm there was a (I think it was called) a custom dictionary. I was able to type something like "OMW=On My Way" in a text message and it would substitute the words "On My Way" for the letters "OMW". Is there such a feature for the Droid with your application?
I have words in my dictionary that I want to remove, like "git". I checked my user dictionary but its not there. Can anyone else point me to where I can remove this entry? Also, when typing "Yahoo", the suggestions have a bunch of Asian characters next to "Yahoo". Does anyone know how to fix this?
I'm wondering how to add words to the dictionary (aside from going into menu>settings>language & keyboard) like I used to be able to with my droid. If i was texting along and came to a word that wasn't in the dictionary, I could just long press and then select "add to dictionary". Well this phone doesn't have that option and so I'm wondering if I'm just missing it or what..?
When creating a custom account and/or sync adapter, raw_contacts that belong to your custom account can be created. But it looks like that they then cannot be edited with the Contact app! Is this a known limitation, or a problem in my code?
I know that to delete words I've manually input into Swype is simply to highlight, hit the swype button and delete, but what about words that come in the Swype dictionary? For instance, I often mistakenly put in the word "Urea" when I want to say, "Yea." I don't see myself every needing the word "Urea," so I want to delete it from the Swype dictionary, but I can't seem to figure it out because it's not a word I made Swype learn, it's a word that came with Swype. Any way to fix this?
I was having some fun swyping curse words and all of those words are now in the dictionary. My nieces play with the phone and I don't want them typing "fun" and "shine" and getting other words.. Any thoughts on where to do delete those unspeakables?
I gave up waiting for the official update so decided to take matters into my own hands. Right now I have s-off, 2.15 radio and running wave 3 Rom. So far so good! Just had a few questions.
1. Is there a way to restore my user defined dictionary? What about bookmarks? 2. My phone does not seem Any faster. Is that normal? Browser seems to scroll slightly slower - maybe due to flash? 3. Are any of the HTC elements safe to restore from my titanium backup? 4. When I installed adrynalyns wave 3 Rom did it install a kernel as well?
I have looked everywhere and cant seem to find this...On my original Incredible when I typed a word it didnt ahve and then selected it from the list on the left it would auto add it to the dictionary. I have a replacement now and it doesnt do it and for the life of me I cant find the setting to enable it. Any ideas where this is at.
While using the predictive text in the DINC I sometimes want to type something that isn't a word like an acronym or some abbreviation. Predictive text will suggest a word close to what I am typing but I don't want that. It offers exactly what I am typing as an option but then it adds that text to the dictionary. Sometimes that's great but most of the time I want to simple use the term once and not add it to to dictionary. If I type space it will change my text. If I select the offered override it adds the text to my dictionary. How do I just keep what I am typing?
i have it installed but it keeps saying there are no pictures to edit...even as i take more and more, none of them ever show up in there for me to do anything with.seems like a useless program if i can't get any of my pictures into it.
I recently formatted my phone and lost an app I had and can't for the life of me remember what it was called. Prob cause I only used it once.. Anyway, it was basically a song editor and allowed you to make the crop a ringtone, alarm clock, notification sound, etc.
How do you edit an existing calendar appointment in Froyo 2.2? For instance, to change a location, time, or subject matter?
In 2.1, you could bring up the appointment, hit menu, and select edit appointment. I do not see that option in 2.2, and when I need to change an appointment, I end up having to delete it and inputting a completely new appointment. Not really a big deal, but if a meeting time changes, it would be a lot easier to just change the time instead of creating a whole new appointment and deleting the original...
Does anyone know a way to edit the contents of a Folder that you create as a widget on a Homescreen? I know you can edit the name by tapping and holding it but I want to delete some stuff i put in the folder. I tried locating the folder with Astro and could not find it on the phone memory or the storage card.
I am on Android 2.1 and I have one multi column Custom listview Using BaseAdapter with an editable edittext at the end of the listview. If the data in the listview do not contain the data of user choice then user should be able to enter data. If the data is already there in the list user will be able to select the data using custom selector. If a selection is made in the list view and user wanted to enter data in the text field at the bottom after selection then the marker in the list view should be unselected. I tried to use onclick() method on edit text using click listener. First time when it is clicked, edit text is getting focus and onclick() method is not fired. And when it is clicked second time, onclick() method is fired and notifyDataSetChanged() method is called. I tried to call the notifyDataSetChanged() method from the Focus Listener, list view selection is gone in my first attempt and edit text is not receiving any data input from the keyboard (frozen).
Just got my verizon Incredible. It came with some applicaitons on the home screen (Peep) that I want to delete. When I do a long hold on it and drag it to the Garbage can it does not delete from the home screen. After trying it again, I must have accidentally dropped into a folder that was created on my home page to hold documents of mine. So ...
1) how do I get peep hopefully off my system, but at least off my home screen 2) how do I edit the FOLDER on my home screen to remove peep?
