    Default Re: adding words to dictionary? how?

    The predictive text function on the latest firmware update (Automatically came in, last week of December 2013), for Note II - is a huge disappointment over what was already in the phone. It will not learn my most commonly used words effectively any longer. (i.e. - Wife''''s name, kids name, address (geographical) locations)...
    It forgets them (no longer includes them in predictive text) immediately. Can use again in the same message - but after that the user must type all of the words completely again and force the phone to accept them. I've clicked the appropriate boxes to "learn" words and styles.

    Hoping they 'downgrade' to the old predictive text. It worked - it was smooth - it was a pleasure to use. This 'upgrade' is extremely disappointing and wastes so much time in Swyping messages.

    I'm Galaxy Note 1 user and preferred to use 3x4 keyboard, hence needed to add "Abbreviation Text" to Predictive Dictionary. The usual 'Add Word' icon disappear after I updated the firmware to N7000DXLS8 (Baseband Version). I hope the below two steps able to help you in adding "Abbreviation Text".

    Step (1) Key in one abbreviation text (tks = thanks) ONLY, then sent via sms messaging (Note: not via whatsapp messaging).
    Step (2) Go to Setting / Language and Input / Samsung Keyboard Setting / Predictive Text and select "Learn from Messaging".

    Note:
    A) You may create a new contact with a phone Nos. 1234567 so that you can send "Abbreviation Text" to this new contact without disturbing your friends. Not to worry if encounter 'message not sent' because you still able to add "Abbreviation Text" to your predictive dictionary.

    B) Refer to above Step (1)..... Enter one abbreviation text (tks = thanks) ONLY. It does not work if you send two abbreviation texts (example, lol and tks) in a single sms.

    Okay, if anyone else is STILL having this problem (which I was even after trying every single fix on here) I have found a way around it using the QWERTY keyboard on the Galaxy Note2:
    1. In the messaging app
    Right after I type the word I want as a shortcut (no spaces or anything after, with the cursor on the right edge of the word)
    2. I pull down the notification bar and go into settings. (The gear on the top right)
    3. I scroll down and go into "Language and input"
    4. Click on the settings (gear to the right) of "Samsung Keyboard"
    There's an option that says "Continuous Input" with a checkbox next to it.
    5. Uncheck the box, then recheck it. (Or check and uncheck, whichever you prefer. It works both ways. You really only have to hit the button once.)
    6. Click the home button at the bottom of your phone.
    7. Click back into your "Messaging" app and the shortcut will magically have appeared in the shortcut/suggestion predictive text box thingy.
    (If it doesn't work after the last step, try only hitting the checkbox once in step 5. Sometimes tapping it twice screws it up)
    Hope this helps! It took me hours to figure out!
