    Punctuation

    I had the exact same issue when I had US keyboard loaded, i had to press the space bar after each punctuation symbol.

    Loading a UK keyboard is not the solution as you have seen as the @ and " are in different places on a UK keyboard

    Go back to the language settings in Control Panel and add the US Touch keyboard, move it to the top of the list and delete the UK keyboard, then reboot.

    Now the @ and " will be in the correct place and there will be no need to hit the spacebar after punctuation . . .

  3. E52 prediction and punctuation

    Everytime I end a sentence and move to add a period the "&" symbol comes up by default and I have to open the list and scroll down to the period. This is maddening since a period is the punctuation I use the most. Can I adjust this somehow? I don't want
    the "&" symbol on the top of the list. It's the same with words....commonly used words are way down the list and esoteric nonsense gets put in the first position. My old Nokia 3100 learned what words were used most and also had common words at the top. I hate
    texting on this phone because of having to scroll down for several words and most punctuation.



    Any tips?

    Text Prediction and punctuation marks [N97]

    Thanks guys for your posts!



    @The_Funkateer

    If you imagine that the same word is automatically saved to the custom dictionary but with various punctuation marks at the end - you have the answer.

    You can notice that always the last used punctuation mark is used.

    And sometimes when you insert a word and a punctuation mark and you use * you will see that a totally different word with the same punctuation may appear (if the word has the same combination of keys).

    I suppose and I think I'm right that N95 treats "word + punctuation" as a completely new word and moreover the phone saves it automatically and secretly to the custom dictionary even if we don't want them to be saved.

    @chanchan05

    Sure, but it has nothing in common with the beta version of Custom Dict.

    In my case the Dict works as expected.

    It just helped me to discover what is on the list of my custom words and I was really shocked to see over 2000 words (each word repeated several times with different punctuations at the end).

    You can make tests to notice what happens every time when you are writing a message.

    Insert a word, add a punctuation and use * several times.

    Then use the Custom Dict app to edit the list of custom words.



    @foxmeister

    Thanks for the info.

    As I can see you are now using the N900.

    Does it work better in N900?
