languages and input editing

I've got my setting on to save my used words.

how do I delete certain words that are automatically saved when I type.

I used to go into languages 8.0 and older o/s, and could be able to delete any word I wanted. 

now on 9.0 it seems you can only delete all of them at once in bulk only, not choose which ones.

Re: languages and input editing

Hi @exsanguinator, let me see if I can help out here! 

 

Are you talking about the personal dictionary? This is a function enabling you to add words to be used in apps such as spell checker. In order to remove a word from the personal dictionary, find and tap Settings > System > Languages & input > Tap the word that you want to remove > Tap the bin icon in the top right corner.

 

I hope that helped! let me know if I have misinterpreted your question in any way!

Re: languages and input editing

my personal dictionary is empty. 

nothing to delete. 

my keyboard dictionary is full of misspelt words that I want to delete.

In previous o/s you could edit or delete your keyboard words that automatically get saved.

Re: languages and input editing

in previous o/s you went to settings>language and input>xperia keyboard >use my writing style>my words

it seems 9.0 doesn't have that, am I correct?
