    What purpose does the personal dictionary serve on the default Samsung keyboard?

    I was hoping it would allow you to setup user shortcuts like some of the aftermarket keyboard apps do.

    For example, if i type tx it would enter Thank you,

    I entered several of these shortcuts into the personal dictionary but they don't seem to work.

    Can this be done with the default keyboard?

    I just purchased the Galaxy S4 and I am using the default keyboard and encountering the same problem. Anyone discover a fix for this?

    i don't think the personal dictionary are "shortcuts". i think they're just literally a dictionary for additional words you use so they can recommend it or allow it to pass through without a typo. Example would be you always signoff with a friend as "TY". It may mean anything "thank you", "Ted Yearly"...etc etc. So if you add "TY" to the dicationary, the keyboard won't think it's a typo.

    If you want a keyboard that supports shortcuts, check SlideIT.
