    Which phone, what language set, what keyboard app?

    And I'm afraid the image link seems to be broken.

    I suggest you change the keyboard app.

    My favorite is Swype, SwiftKey is very popular also, but it comes up with those alternate emoticons worse than any kybd app I have used, which is why I don't use it anymore.

    So it's a capital Omega - a Greek letter. Well I admit I cannot think why "eh" should translate to that.

    A different keyboard might help (incidentally I do use SwiftKey and never see any emoticons when typing with it - I wonder what's different between my settings/apps and AZgl1500's?). Or if you can find your saved words in your keyboard's settings it might be worth checking whether there is a substitution in there that you can clear. Maybe also check for any language-related settings, since that's a Greek letter (though it's also used as a symbol in other contexts). I don't know why this is happening, so these are just the first places I'd look if it were happening to me.

    In electronics that symbol is called an "ohm".

    That "ohm" symbol paid me a good salary for over 50 years until I retired.

    I wrangled a few ohms myself before I retired as well.

    All I ever used to know about Star Trek disappeared from my memory cells when Mr. Penske's 18 wheeler T-boned my Goldwing back in 2008....

    It took me almost 5 years to recover 50% of what I used to know....
    http://s1067.photobucket.com/user/Dryheat2012/slideshow/Accident?sort=3

    that little incident was directly responsible for HR punching my Retirement Ticket.

    It is forums like this one, that helped me put my life back together again.
    Reading someone's problems and thinking "Hey, I know how to fix that........ uh, I used to...... then the research goes to find that answer I used to know" and that brings back the memory cells...

    and that is a direct quote from my doctor, he told me that if I did not start digging in, I would be a mental vegetable... my choice, fight it, or loose it.

    and no, that did NOT stop me from getting back up on the horse after I got bucked off....
    I used to own horses, and yes, I have been bucked off, right over the withers, with cactus thorns in my rump....

    here is my new horse.

    I ride myself. I never want off the horse. After a crash that left me with 4 broken ribs I was riding again before I could lay down in a bed.

    You might have an entry in your personal dictionary that places a camera if you type those letters.

    I actually use the personal dictionary to fast type emoji by using a phrase related to it. You stumbled across this by accident.

    That's like saying if you need to express laughter don't type XD or LMAO.

    Your suggestion is a porous band-aid no matter how meaningless the question seemed to you.

    It has meaning to me and that's why I answer these posts. These OPs simply need guidance and ignoring them only prolongs their issue.

    Yeah, just got around to acknowledging it.

    My feed seems to be backwards. I think it's due to a desktop level setting when I joined several years ago.

    I never really got involved in my forum accounts until I installed Tapatalk.
