    auto-fill for names when sending a Personal Message (PM)

    I learned to put a semi-colon after the screen name of the person I am sending a message to.

    Sometimes the auto-fill would add more to the name than I intended and the message ended up not where I intended.

    Example:

    I want to send a message to someone named: bearis

    The auto-correct might just keep on and add a few more letters, so the message would be sent to: bearisgray instead of bearis.

    So now I would type in: bearis;
    even when that is the only person I am sending a message to.

    Just check to make sure that it doesn't change the name on you when you aren't looking.

    Love it. That's a good idea. Other words besides names get changed, too. An iPad is even worse for doing this. Sometimes I wonder where people are looking when they type posts. I'm always looking at what I am typing, but of course many times there are things I don't catch either. I try to re-read it.

    Interesting. I usually just click on the icon of the person and then select PM. Thanks for the info.

    That might work without a problem.

    There are a few people that I send PMs to fairly often - and I type their screen names in - - - -
