    The Samsung keyboard BEFORE the marshmallow update was fine, never had a problem. Since the update, there are 2 big issues with it:

    1. No more personal dictionary. You can no longer add custom words on the fly. Why the hell was this removed???
    2. When i'm texting, every time I end a sentence with a question mark and hit the space bar, it replaces the last word of my sentence with a random word that makes no sense. Example: it changes, "Do you know which way to go? to "Do you know which way to the? Then when I change it back to the correct word and hit the check mark, it underlines the last word as if its spelled incorrectly. WTF?!

    I ended up downloading and switching to the google keyboard as a permanent fix but the dumb changes they make have no rhyme or reason...

    Google keyboard is good. I prefer SwiftKey myself. The text prediction is pretty darn amazing.

    The lack of an editing feature in the personal dictionary is seriously annoying! For some reason "jusy" replaces "just" EVERY SINGLE TIME! But I've tried to purposefully add multiple words that it refuses to acknowledge them over and over. And I can't use swype if I take off predictive text.

    This keyboard is SO FRUSTRATING

    Yeah, I found an answer to how to remove a word :) http://androidforums.com/threads/personal-dictionary-setting-gone.996337/

    there's A LOT to learn on this phone :/

    MLSS, I might have to try those other apps, because their answer isn't working! Seriously, a dictionary that doesn't have "JUST" on it?!?! The thing doesn't even recognize the word!! And I can't delete "jusy" to save my effin life!
