    Default Re: adding words to dictionary? how?

    Hi, this still did not work for me, the box was actually already checked. However, I did find a solution in another forum that I thought I would share.

    Ok I believe Im a step closer to solving this adding to the dictionary issue.
    This is how Im getting around it
    Firstly my keyboard is set to portrait type 34
    Predictive text on with continuous input. Now to add a word turn OFF predictive text.
    Now type your word manually and when your done, and with the cursor flashing directly next to the end of your word, go back into settings and turn predictive text back ON.
    Now when you back out of setting you should see your word in the suggestion list above the keypad. Tap your new word and you should find it added to your dictionary.
    This method also works for email addresses.
    Just to be clear this is for use on Android 4.1.2 my device for all concerned is Samsung GS2.

    Make sure you tap the new word in the suggestion list otherwise it won't be added. Still a bit cumbersome I know but at least now I can get new words into my predictive text.

    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".

    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.
