Question: With iOS 11.1.1 (15B150) update, when I type the word “world“ , I get the word “W:o:r:l:d” affects both iPad and iPhone ... anyone else?

With iOS 11.1.1 (15B150) update, when I type the word “world“ , I get the word “W:o:r:l:d” affects both iPad and iPhone ... anyone else?


i selected iPhone and messages (just to post this) but it really affects either the iPad or iPhone in ANY app at all that uses the keyboard... making a note in Kindle app, typing in Microsoft‘s Word, excell, PowerPoint apps, iMessages. Etc ... doesn’t matter what the app is, just typing.


there are no Text Replacement rules in General->Keyboard->TextReplace to cause this. (In fact. I even tried to make a rule after the errror to fix it by saying whenever I type “world“ replace it with “world“ ... but that doesn’t fix it either.


Anyone else seeing this error?

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11

Answer:

I have one posssible solution and one possible workaround. Try going to Settings | General | Reset and select Reset Keyboard Dictionary. If that doesn’t work see if doing a text replacement for something like wrld would be be replaced with world correctly.

Nope. No text replace rules were there. In fact, after observing this ... I tried to fix it there by creating a rule explicitly saying to replace a typed “ world“ with ”world“.


That rule, (without the quote marks as shown above) is ignored ... and I still get this behavior.
