Default Auto correct stopped working

I have tried everything. Clearing the settings, Restarting, shutting down, booting into recovery, but nothing gets my auto correct back. Just to be clear I am referring to when I, for example, would type 'hellp' into messaging, and it automatcially gets fixed when I hit the space bar. I'm on Wicked btw

Any ideas?

LOL, I spend hours looking for menu to turn it off, since I could not type any word that was not in dictionary and corrections were almost always wrong, for your example hellp could be misspelled hello but also help, hell etc. So stupid question: is it still turn on?

Im not sure what you mean , "is it still turn on" ?

Dictionary? I dont even have a dictionary app in this rom.

Ive tried all the settings, including resetting them, so every thing *should* be turned on

Have you changed keyboards? I had this happen on an HTC and reinstalling the stock keyboard worked for me even though I was using swiftkey.

I assume it worked when you first installed your custom rom?

I think the other guy meant the built in dictionary that's part of the OS or keyboard, not an app. That's the library that lets auto-correct work.

I hadn't changed keyboards, but I have now

I installed swiftkey, and its working the way it should.

I don't know how to re-install the stock keyboard btw - do you mean just switch the keyboard and input method to Samsung keyboard, or is it something else? Also, yes it did work when I first installed the rom.

I just asked this awesome community for the stock HTC Sence keyboard .apk and they served it up within hours, for the Gnote3 just do a search for the latest touchwiz keyboard and that should turn up an apk.

But it sounds like swiftkey fixed it and I'm pretty sure you'll like it more than the stock keyboard, letting it learn from old SMSs/facebook/twitter/gmail/etc will help it a lot too.
