    Has anyone else noticed this - when you write an email - check gets auto corrected to cheque.

    God thats annoying!

    Set your Pre regional settings to USA and all will be well.

    I figured either that or Canada (were I'm from originally). It is currently the only way to fix this issue....in Canada at least.

    Yeah, I can live with that but not being able to write cheque is pants - lol see what I mean!

    My guess is that this is a result of American programmers thinking that cheque replaces check in all instances (for regions that use traditional/UK English).

    Try using the AutoCorrect Edit homebrew app and deleting that entry

    If you press backspace it changes back to check like this.

    Does that work with 1.1.3?

    If you backspace it should switch it back and let you keep 'check' instead.

    Yep, definitely a localization (localisation) bug. I'm in Canada, so equally annoying for me.

    Even worse, most people would use the word "check" (verify, confirm) far more often than "cheque" (UK: paper promisary note).

    Who uses cheques anymore anyway with Interac and Internet money transfers?

    Yeah it switches it back but as soon as you space again I'm back to check ah hold on I see what you mean!

    Check check check

    I think I was double back spacing, hurrah thanks every much! Every day is a school day!

    Strangely I get cheque to check and check to cheque and connection to connexion (is that even real in any language?!?!)

    As far as electronic banking goes things got started 20 years late in the USA. There is still no national bank card network here (like Interac). Nor do all banks belong to Mastro/Plus (which can make visiting from other countries a pain). VISA/MC had to get involved to start comprehensive debit and that is only relatively recent.

    Internet money transfers are still a pipe dream here.

    this has been bugging me but pressing backspace seems to fix it and I'm happy with that for now besides I don't type check that often but if it gets annoying I'll last the autocorrect app on there and all will be well
