    There seems to be a weird issue with the text input..
    If I want to type the word "it's", I type the letters i, t, s, and it gives me the options. But even when the word is in the middle of a sentence, the I is capitalized! :O

    If I have to type it without the capitalized 'I', I've to click on i, t, then hold for apostrophe, then click s..

    This is a major annoyance for me. Is anyone else facing this issue? What do I do about it? I'm stumped. :thinking:

    I added "it's" with lowercase i to the dictionary by hitting "add word". Now it comes up as one of my choices by just pressing i then t. Doesnt come up if you press i,t,s, I guess this is a limitation of how the dictionary works and adds punctuation. But Im happy enough to just press i,t then select it.

    Thats weird, works fine putting symbols in there for me, both when adding word in normal text entry and in the user dictionary options. Im using IME mod keyboard, dunno if that makes a difference though.

    I just checked my stock keyboard and you cant put in symbols. Sucks but not a major annoyance for me. I can fix it/live with it if i have to

    That could make a difference I suppose. I'm using the stock one. The only symbol I can enter in the add word box is the hyphen..

    I just tried entering an apostrophe with Swype, but that doesn't work either.

    in the ime mod kb "it's" appears on mine by inputting i,t and "It's" by inputting i,t,s

    only problem is I cant remember if I programmed that or not
