IOS 8.3 Update has broken the predictive text options in Editorial
The predictive text options no longer appear in Editorial after updating to IOS 8.3
Third party keyboards appear to function as they should but the predictive features of the standard IOS keyboard no longer function in Editorial. I've tested this in other text editors but the problem seems to be unique to Editorial.
Is it possible that the predictive text area is collapsed/hidden? That happens to me randomly.
If not, could you describe the symptoms a bit more, or maybe post a screenshot?
Apologies for my late reply Clare, I didn't get a notification that you had responded.
The predictive text feature doesn't activate at all and if you attempt to activate it in Editorial the option is greyed out as you can see in the this screen shot. Hope this helps.
I'm seeing an intermittent strange issue with italic ('*' character) with 8.3 where the first couple of characters of the following word are repeated.
I've no idea what's causing it - having a variety of keyboards installed on the iPad Mini it's happening on.
Just one more data point.
@jonmoore Thanks for the screenshot - I never knew it was possible to toggle Predictive text like that - possibly because I only have a single keyboard.
(No worries about the speed of reply - It would be great if this forum had some way of requesting/getting notification of new posts in threads you've contributed to - I haven't found a way - so have to try to remember to check back every few days...)
@jonmoore On second thoughts, there is the RSS notification of all Editorial forum for all posts - which is how I discovered your reply. This forum is so low-volume that it's not very onerous.
And there is also the per-thread "Comment Feed".
The lack of notifications is the least of my concerns right now. ;)
I'm more concerned that Ole Zorn doesn't seem to monitor the forum anymore and respond regarding critical bugs of this nature.
To be clear, the predictive text feature is a native IOS 8 feature and has nothing to do with having a third party keyboard/s installed. You can activate it via system settings or via a long press on the key with the spherical icon on the bottom row of the on screen keyboard.
