    Default Resetting your predictive text dictionary

    Hi all,

    Has anyone figured out how to reset your entire predictive text dictionary in one hit?

    I know there is the option of selecting one at a time and then deleting them, however this is pretty much useless when there's thousands of words stored.

    All the best. X

    System Settings > Applications > Keyboard app (I don't know the exact name of the stock keyboard, so look through the various apps) then delete the data and clear cache. That should do it .

    You're the man srkmagnus!

    Just for clarification:
    1. System
    2. Apps
    3. All
    4. HTC Sense Input
    5. Clear Data & Clear Cache


    When I first cleared it, I was getting the red spell check line underneath all of my words (irrelevant of whether or not they were spelt correctly). Give it a few minutes and it will fix itself.

    On my Note2 it is:
    Settings
    Language and Input
    Samsung Keyboard (I use the default rather than Skype or Google Voice.)
    Predictive text - the on/off button is to the right.
    Delete personalized data (from user. yes)
    Restart seems to have worked. Hope this helps.
