Modifying Default Dictionary / Auto-Correct

I need to modify the way auto-correct behaves on my Atrix.

What I [b[really[/b] want to do is change the 'order' in which auto-correct modifies my typing; for example, I want it to treat "Id" as "I'd" as opposed to "Id" as the first / default correction (with the option of course to go back and select a different dictionary word if I need to)

Failing that, is there a way to delete words from the default dictionary? I know I can add words to the user dictionary, but that doesn't get me where I want to be.

Thanks in advance!

I do not have the Atrix, but it should be the same as my Droid X.

If you are using Swype:

To remove a word from the Dictionary, highlight only the word that you want to delete, and then tap the Swype key . A message screen will display to confirm that you want to delete the word.

If you are not using Swype, switch to Swype and do the above.

****Note: If I add " I'd " to my dictionary it is the first word that pops up, which is I believe what your ultimate goal is? User input words are "green" default common choices are "blue".
