claude0001 1,055 Posted March 16, 2021 Share Posted March 16, 2021 (edited) As much as I love my Pro1, here's one thing bugging me: There seem to be a few Apps that insist on doing auto-replacements even when I use the physical keyboard. That's infuriating, as for me, one of the points of having the keyboard is to be able to type stuff exactly as I want it, with no software thinking it knows better. To make things worse, the automatic replacement does not follow the typing language set in the on-screen keyboard (Android Keyboard, I type in four languages). E.g. if I try to type the German preposition "im" (in) the software auto-replaces this with "I'm". It seems to default to English which is set as system language. Needless to say, I tinkered with the auto-correct and auto-replace options of the Android Keyboard. And while that way I can enable or disable auto-correct also for the physical keyboard (i.e. marking of misspelled words), I found no option to prevent it from doing the above auto-replacements. I should mention that I am on LineageOS 16 (last official build). However, as one googles around, one finds similar bug reports for different phones and Android versions in combination with hardware keyboards, so the issue may not be specific to LineageOS. Am I missing something obvious? Let me also emphasise that the vast majority of Apps do not seem to be affected by this. Up to know I encountered the effect in only two -- which are unfortunately of the typing-intensive sort: 1. The default "Messaging" app. --> Ditched that for QKSMS which does not have the problem. 2. K9-Mail. Do not want to replace that one by a different app, as it seems to be the only open-source mail client that supports arbitrary IMAP server configurations.
