    In my Android email app on my S7, it no longer puts a period automatically at the end of a sentence when hitting double space. Also it doens't auto capitalize the first word of a sentence. This used to work. The keyboard settings are set up properly.

    Sounds like it's the actual email client doing it. Perhaps it thinks you want to type some website or email address... Are you using the stock (Samsung) keyboard?

    My note 5 is doing the exact same thing. Never did it before and only seems to do it in the email app

    My galaxy s7 edge is doing the exact same thing in emails only, text messaging is fine. Even typing here is fine. Also if I try and edit a word it will keep putting letters at the beginning of that word. Very weird, and annoying. It's not just the stock email app though, I also tried the Yahoo mail app and it won't auto punctuate or capitalize either. This has been going on for a few weeks on my phone. I've tried deleting the Samsung keyboard cache and restarting phone, nothing works. Hopefully someone can figure this out!

    I talked to Samsung tech support. He said I was the first person he heard anything about this from. I have a Note 4 and an S7. Auto punctuate works fine on every application EXCEPT Exchange on both phones. Here's the Samsung tech number so everyone can call to let them know they have a problem that's bothering their customers (besides the Note 7 fiascal). (800) 726-7864

    Same with me. Samsung Galaxy J2. Started approx 3-5wk ago. One day it was working fine. Next day it started behaving wrong. Only in Samsung default email app. For me I'll type a word and it does the autospace successfully. But then when I type a punctuation mark (,!?.) it doesn't remove the auto space. Then it doesn't capitalise the next word if I typed a period. Slows me down heaps. Anyone know whether getting a new email app will help.

    Same issue here on an S7. Not only is it the standard email app, it's also the yahoo app. I'm having to reset this every other day now, not sure why. Go to settings, applications, app manager, then android system webview and hit 'uninstall updates' from the drop menu top right.
    VERY annoying. This has me thinking about Apple... I know, gasp.

    Same here. Just had a system update (Verizon) and teh auto punctuate quit working. Spoke with Verizon who transferred me to Google who transferred me to Samsung. No help from anyone. They don't want to believe that it is an update problem and wanted me to do a master reset on my phone (which I refused). Ugh! Maybe they will do an update to the update.

    This is happening to me, too. Google Maps is also not navigating today; it's only showing previeq mode. What's up, Google Android?

    Folks. I lay my money on this being a result of an Apple lawsuit wherein they were also demanding a patent for their handy "scroll to top" feature.

    Check the settings on your Samsung Keyboard under settings/general management/language and input/virtual keyboard. Since the upgrade all my settings for capitalization, punctuation etc. were turned off. You just need to turn them back on

    Getting capitalization and punctuation settings is tricky. I was having the same problem and followed all suggest method but nobody mention the tricky part. Do as follows...Go to Settings>General Management>Language Input>Virtual Keyboard then press and hold Samsung Keyboard that appears under Virtual Keyboard and all smart typing options will pop up including Auto capitalize and Auto punctuate. Hope this will help others.

    I began a reply to the auto capitalization thread. I simply clicked my window tab button on the left of my good old J3 Samsung to check a text. When I came right back here ALL my text was missing from box!? And the auto save thingy did nothing! Actually it sent me back atop again! HELLO? And this was my first time using this Android Central forum too! If you want to keep a star celebrity such as myself, FIX IT!! There's no reason text should be all gone just because you switch tabs for a sec! Unacceptable! I'm calling cooperate headquarters immediately! What's the #!? 800.androidcentral? Heads shall roll! Oops gotta go! Cya! I have to sign autographs for all my fans now.
