If I type something like "Helko" and press the "Hello" button that shows up on the bar above my keyboard, it will add a space, leaving me with "Hello ".

If I wanted to type "Hello." then this is frustrating, because now I have to delete the space before adding the period.

As another example, say I wanted to send my friend just the word Hello, but instead I typed Helko. Is there a single button I can press to go from Helko to Hello? (Without an intermediate Hello ?)

Is there any way to stop the autocorrect bar from adding a space after I choose to correct a word?

If the autocorrect word is highlighted, then you can also accept it by just tapping Space. If you double-tap Space, it will accept and insert the stop, same as a regular word.

After question edits: this also works if you type any punctuation, bracket, question mark etc.

  • I agree that this is the functionality. How do I get it to go from Helko to Hello? That's what I want. As another example, say I want to type (Hello) but end up typing (Helko. How do I go from (Helko to (Hello) without needing to delete a space?

    I wish you'd asked the question to which you needed the answer; but it's the same. Any punctuation will apply the autocorrect, if it's highlighted.

  • This is also helpful but somehow I keep on finding bad examples lol XD I'll edit my question again because that still isn't quite what I'm looking for

  • I think I found a better example and description: 1 button press to go from Helko to Hello: is there any way to do that?

  • My issue is that if I press any punctuation, I have to delete that punctuation. And if I press the button to correct it, it adds a space punctuation, which I don't like.
