    Spell corrective

    I hate this part of this site. It changes my words or puts letters or words into different combinations.GNP idea either. Is not what I put down. I said I couldn't help but..." On the reply to Facebook question. Why does my wording get altered? I know I'm dyslexic and English, double problem, but to use American spelling is one problem I can live with but not altering my sentence construction

    that does not happen to me on this site... i'm using a PC... what device are you using? and by the way, what does your acronym GNP mean? i've seen you use it before, too.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I also do not have that problem on this site. Could well be the device you are using. I know on my tablet, before I changed some settings, I had that issue. Regardless of device, see if there are some default settings you can change to stop the auto-correct.

    I have "predictive" turned off on my iPad. It might be a setting on your device that needs to be shut off. Spell check sometimes gives me words I don't want but it is still helpful so I don't shut it off.

    Same here. While I find it annoying when my iPad changes things that were just what I intended, for the most part I enjoy how helpful it is the rest of the time.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Same here. What is GNP? I use my PC most of the time when on any forum.

    The thing I dislike about auto corrections on my phone and tablet are that both have "learned" my misspelled words and now accept them!

    Some of my messages are rather interesting after auto correct gets hold of them. Once I was texting sis to inform her of dad's appt. with Doctor O. Changed to Doctor "a ho". 😊

    I have no idea what GNP means . That is what I'm saying why does this site change my words to an acronym I don't understand.

    i am using an iPad will check settings and see if I can change it there. Sorry if it is my iPad and not the site. It only happens here though to be honest don't use any other forums or sites like similar to this.

    Thank you you to all who replied.

    It's not this site, it's your computer or whatever device you're using. It can be turned off by going into settings on your device.

    I always thought GNP stood for Gross National Product - Must be something else gross, eh? Edie

    It must be your setting. When I bought my flip phone, I had to turn of that option because it was trying to anticipate what I was going to type. I spell check everything before I post it to make sure I didn't make a typo.

    The most hated and loved feature for administrative assistants. I worked with a guy who's last name was Taht. Spell check changed it to "that". We ladies were always double checking behind each other because he would go into a absolute snit if he found his name spelled wrong.

    Switched off auto correct and not having the problem. Not being a computer person, can use but don't understand background, I hadn't realised it was my iPad. I've updated the system as well so the combo of the 2 doing great work.
    thank you everyone who explained the set up and what I need to do.
