    I have downloaded the zip file and also I have root access to my pre but can someone explain how to upload this file and which file to upload.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this but just in case: Since the app creates a backup file of the already in place dictionary, is there any reason why I can't edit the hell out of that one and then tell my phone to restore that one? I know it renders the app GUI useless except for on-the-fly additions but I would think it be easier to type every thing on a keyboard and reload it than add each word manually on the phone...
    I'll answer this question in my AutoCorrect Edit thread.

    i tried running the script in the cmd prompt, and it didn't work, then i did a search and most of the things said stuff about running it in OS X. Am i right? does this have to run on a Mac? If not, how do i run it on XP?

    FYI, I don't think the lines with commas, such as

    ,a|ma

    Work. They don't seem to for me, anyway. The rest work fine.

    I private messaged you the location, but looks like we got it here in the thread too. Mine is the 1.1 version, fyi.

    I use the autoreplace file to put shortcuts in for sms.

    I think I used the 15k combined file and I had to make a good amount of edits that bugged me like am != AM, mess != mass. Some really silly ones in there sometimes. But what I would do is make a notepad entry for all the ones that bugged me and then edit in root when I had the time. Never got rhong's app to work for me really, but it is a nice app. The shortcuts I find really useful. I make gv into Google Voice and I have my family's names in there as initials, and my work locations as initials, some common internet acronyms, and recently put in shortcuts for google calendar sms so when I need to enter common recurring events I just use a specific word and it changes it into the google calendar phrase I need to send in sms. Hope this helps.

    I'm resurrecting this thread as many people are running into email slowdowns after installing the advanced dictionary that's in the quick install program.

    Based on the research we did earlier, the word list can't be larger then 5k or so.. To the patch developer, please read over this thread! the 5k googlewords list does *not* cause the email delay that people are seeing.

    The 5000 google words (not a good list since there's no sorting, it's just the first 5000 words on that list) is 468kb's after being run through your script.. The 500 word list is 100kb's.

    The top 500 list adds an additional ~3 seconds to email, and ~1-2 seconds to the web page.

    testing now with the 5000 word list. EDIT - the 5000 word list was about the same time - or less then 3-4 seconds which is good enough for me.. (468kb file size) - so maybe that's the sweet spot?

    ps - I'm measuring email delay from the time the header shows up, to the time the email body loads. I'm measuring web delay from the time I click on a a bookmark (with the web card already open), to the time the spinning wheel starts.

    yea I installed that and it doesn't correct some words and I can't find it to remove it, anyone know where it went?

    I am new at this whole thing and I am not understanding how to get this patch onto my Pre.

    It says run the script. But where do I run the script? I need some step by step directions. If anyone out there can help me out, that would be Saweet! Thanks.

    Is there any chance that this can be used for the virtual keyboard? I know that a plug-in is needed, but is there any progress on this front?

    installed the auto-replace dictionary today. nice. I really could use something like that. However, it slowed my email to a crawl (wait time for text to appear when opening an email).

    Uninstalled the dictionary for now until the file size is reduced (see diomark's comments above) or some other efficiency is found to reduce the lag time. Great concept. I hope someone keeps working on this.

    Hope this thread isn't too old to bring up, but I have a small modification to the Python script (which is a great idea, by the way - thanks to the author).

    Attached is a revised version of the script, which uses the Enchant Python module to check that a 'wrong' word which is programmatically generated by the script (by swapping adjacent letters) is not actually a correct word - for instance, if the word 'lost' was in the common words list or your extra words list, the script would generate 'list' as a mistyped version of it (because the 'i' key is next to the 'o' key), and you would end up with an auto-replace entry that changes list into lost. This revision will avoid that, so if you type list you get list.

    Hope it helps someone, now I'm off to try out my new auto-replace file!

    P.S. Since webOS treats a comma as the end of the word for auto-replace purposes, it makes no sense to have the script generate wrong words that have ',' in them - they won't work. I've updated my edited script to remove those replacements.

    is there a way i could toggle autocorrect through preferences? a patch maybe?

    Hello,

    Do guys have any idea how does it auto-corrects 3 or 2 letter words. I am not able to find those in the autoreplace file. I 've installed 3000 autoreplace words package (v.1.4.5-1- diomark,dBsooner) through preware.

    It's really annoying because some of these words that are replaced are actually right. (eg. ate - are, sir - air, 've - be etc).

    Sorry for the naive kind of question.

    Thank you

    If it's replacing them, then it should be in the file.
    Look for lines similar to below:
    ate|are
    sir|air
    ve|be

    Thanks for the response rhong, I checked the file multiple times, couldn't find those words. Here is the file attached if you would like to check.

    Thanks
