I like the autocorrect feature, but sometimes I want to revert to the word I typed. If i backspace to the word, I see an overlay with the word as I typed it, but can't figure how to revert to it without using the mouse. Any suggestion?
Same. I also like having auto correct, but sometimes I'm trying to write a word spelt incorrectly on purpose.
Pressing 'Space Bar' will correct your word.
If you press 'UP' on your directions, it will cancel auto-correct.
If you press 'Down' it will let you cycle the choices, then hit 'Space Bar' when you've selected the word you want.
Since a fix for this broken MacOS feature is basically unavailable within text typing flow, my "solution" is to fix it with karabiner, or disable it altogether.
- Add a Shortcut that does the ⌘ Command + z -> RightArrow -> Space sequence for you.
Disable: System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Text -> uncheck "Correct spelling automatically". Yes, some actually useful uses of this feature die with this.
