    I have always used Gboard. I recently upgraded to the note 10 and now Gboard is constantly inputting the last word I type into a new field when filling out information. For instance, if I'm shopping online and I'm filling out the payment or shipping page. I type my first name and when I move into the next field to type my last name, my first name is copied over. And then when I move into the address (after deleting the first name from the last name field and correctly young my last name) it copies my last name into the 1st line of the address field. This is rather annoying. I was filling out a job application earlier and it did those over and over. I can't find anything in the settings that would turn this off. It's not predicting the word. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I don't want to have to switch back to Samsung keyboard.

    Welcome to Android Forums, SabrinaH! :)

    I've never encountered, or even heard of, the problem you're having, but I imagine that it's incredibly annoying.

    Let's check a few things, okay? For each, just skip it if you've already done it; if a step solves the problem, no need to keep reading!

    - in System Settings, find Gboard (under Apps or Applications or similar) and clear its cache, then 'force stop'

    - if that didn't work, repeat but this time clear its cache and data, then 'force stop'

    - reboot the phone

    - try a different keyboard; I use Hacker's keyboard, but any will do--it's just to confirm whether the problem is in Gboard

    - try a different browser

    Anything? Let us know!

    It's weird, never happened to me.

    Was it rather a S10 thing?

    Not that I'm aware of--I'm sure we'd have had tons of posts about it, but this is the first I've ever heard of this problem.

    Thanks, I tried force stopping, clearing cache. I also uninstalled and reinstalled :( It doesn't happen with the Samsung keyboard. I'm at a loss. I will try the hackers keyboard. Hopefully, I can find another keyboard I like.

    Did you try Gboard in a different browser, SabrinaH? Which browser do you normally use?
