Default Deleting saved suggested words for SMS

For example, I accidentally typed and added the word 'ti' to the dictionary whilst trying to actually type in 'to'. Now everytime I go to write 'to', it assumes that I want 'ti'.

Is there any way of editting the saved words so that I can delete these types of words?

Good question. I've asked the HTC Twitter people. I'll let you know if there is a reply.

If i may add a question regarding predictive text....

1. Is it possible to turn on/off predictive text on all text fields?
(Some text fields, such as username, i would benefit if it would predict text, but it doesnt).

I dont know of a way to edit the dictionary. But, you can delete all saved words by going into settings/ applications/touch input and selecting clear data...
For now I believe that is the only way to do it.

Not heard back from Twitter @HTC

I've now sent an email to customer support to see if I get a response that way.
Will let you know when I hear back from them.

This does work. But it does wipe them all. Not a huge loss, but annoying.

Subscribing for solution. I am so tired of it suggesting "id" for "of".

I had already inquired to HTC about this particular issue and about adding addtional language keyboards...this is the response:

Thank you for your inquiry about the HTC Hero. I understand the importance of being able to use additional keyboards on the device. I will be more than happy to address this for you. Unfortunately, there is not a way to add additional keyboards to the devices. If you require symbols for certain letters, you may tap and hold the letter in question and select the accent from the pop up menu.
The user dictionary can only have entries added to it. You can do this while typing a new word, tapping on the "+" button.

I hope we have answered your questions in detail. Feel free to contact us again if you have any further technical inquiries. Thank you for contacting HTC Technical Support.

So you have to be ridiculously careful when saving words to the dictionary. Or else you'll have to delete it ALL and start over.

From Home:
Press Menu
Select settings
Select applications
Select manage applications
Select touch input
Select clear data.

My build is 1.29.651.1
Firmware 1.5

This is for the sprint hero.
On other version of the hero I believe you can edit the dictionary.

Nope. As indicated in this thread, the stock user dictionary is not editable.

You can stop a word being added by hitting the "return" button after the first letter. Not as good as actually editing the dictionary but it can stop it adding a weird word if you catch it beforehand.

Just trying to look for the dictionary to delete words (cos even though I know you can't, that's madness) and I discovered something I didn't know...

Did you know you can move the position of the little suggestion box by long pressing on it? Quite handy really, I always found the default position got in the way slightly of the send button. Not any more!

Edit... actually not so hot, it went back to the default position next time I unlocked the phone. Bummer.

Default Problem Solved

In case you guys didn't figure it out by now, in software 1.2 you go to Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> Touch Input -> User Dictionary -> and then proceed to add, delete, or edit any of your custom words.

I'm not sure about HTC phones since I've never owned one, but I do have another Android phone and you can access the individual dictionary words by going to

Code:
menu > settings > language & keyboard > user dictionary
What's weird is that some of the suggestions that show up in my messaging app aren't listed in the dictionary. I have no idea where those are coming from or how to remove some of them.

an issue which has been bugging me for a while, but easily remedied. on HTC Wildfire select settings-language and keyboard-touch input(text settings)-user dictionary,then select word you wish to change or delete and press OK and the unwanted word has been removed. hope this is useful

Default HTC Inspire: How To Delete Accidentally Saved Words:

- Settings
- Applications
- Manage Applications
- Touch Input
- Settings
- Touch Input Settings
- Personal Dictionary
- Edit Personal Dictionary

When you touch a word, it should let you edit it. If you push the menu button on your android phone while on this page, it should give you the choice to delete the words.

Hopefully this helped.
