Hi ya lads and gals

I'd appreciate some help with adjusting the auto correct features on the HTC One M8 - I'd like to disable the automatic replacement of words as you type - but I'd like to leave the list of word suggestions or spell check suggestions as you tap an underlined word.

I don't know if this is a Sense 6 specific option, but you can either have both - suggestions and auto correct - or none at all. You have only one check box and you can't go deeper into the options (Sense 3.6 had more options).
i.e.: edit: sorry, can't post links yet - you can view this screen cap i.imgur.com/XIxn8mr.jpg?1

However on both Sony SP (4.3) and Sony Z1 (4.4) you can tap on word suggestions to get more options, including disabling automatic replacement of words. This however leaves the suggestion list and underlines misspelled words (but otherwise leaves them alone). Which leads me to believe this option might be available on stock android and just hidden in the Sense UI.

I often write bilingual messages and use various abbreviations and/or slang and adding these to the dictionary while fast typing is not an option in the long run .

I'd appreciate your insight into this, thanks in advance

PS - my phone's not rooted.

Thanks for the suggestion NikosPx, but I wanna work on the stock app (I'm crazy that way ).

Ok so I did some more checking and I found that Android 4.4.3 on the Nexus 4 also has separate options for suggestions and auto correct: i.imgur.com/QTsTVrs.jpg?1 - makes me wonder why HTC would choose to hide these options in the new Sense UI

Anywho, asked HTC on Twitter, but I fear I'm not popular enough to warrant an answer, sigh

Wonder if the GPE M8 has these settings...

Hey, sorry but no luck. I've eventually given in and switched to swiftkey keeping my hopes up for the lollipop update though.
