Predictive selling and paages changing back and forth

  SparkyJack 12:52 29 Sep 2014

Make composing a response a nightmare. Predictive spelling inevitable insert words not intended. When moving the cursor or back spacing to correct the page goes of to PCA/add for merchandise/utube/Google and more and entails much paging back and forth to re gain the page. So ultimately I go off the boils or just let nonsense words stay. To wit my latest the BG smart meter saga.

Is there a remedy for the pave switching annoyance?

Is this on a Tablet or PC?

On my galaxy tab 10.1 I turned off the predictive text as I found it annoying :) I also bought a stylus as my fingers were too clumsy to accurately hit the page links and were opening up stuff not intended.

Its a tablet a stylus is also used.

Now looking at plugin keyboard/case.

HB, (sigh and shake head) what planet are you on tonight?

  Aitchbee 21:05 29 Sep 2014

lotvic - I oft' wondered exactly the same about the Captain.

Aitchbee may have a point! See

Never under estimate the powers or thoughts of Aitchbee's comments :O)

jb, and I'll bet HB can give us the odds on that :o)

Don't encourage him.

whatever the odds are infinity is a long time to wait for a payout.
