Auto-suggest Dictionary modifications?

    Hi there. I am loving my Eris and looking forward to the Dec 11 update.

    I am just wondering if the auto-suggest dictionary is user-modifiable. I use compact QWERTY (like SureType on BB). When I type "we", what comes out is "qe" which is the default word it wants to use. Perhaps I used it once and saved it? How can I delete the words I don't want popping up anymore (especially the ones I may have added)?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's a good question, wish I could help you out. Sometimes the auto-correct is really helpful, but other times it is useless. For example, you could accidentally hit the w key before typing a word, and it wouldn't autocorrect it. Kind of annoying.

    I'd like to know the answer for the Sprint HTC Hero. I've accidentally added "corrections" that I'd like to remove from the autocorrect dictionary.

    I don't think you can modify the dictionary in 1.5. You can completely reset it, but cannot remove individual words.

    With 2.1 you can remove single words you've added.

    Agreed. In 1.5, to reset the user dictionary, go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Touch Input and click the "Clear Data" button. In 2.1, you go to Settings>Language & keyboard>Touch Input>User Dictionary to edit, add, or delete words.
