I'm hoping someone might be able to help with this.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 (Sprint Model SM-G930P), running Android V6.0.1. A strange problem came up yesterday in my native e-mail app. The app manages 4 e-mail accounts - 2 gmail accounts, and 1 Hotmail account and my work account (the latter 2 via Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync).
When I am typing in the text entry field within any of the 4 accounts, a lot of unusual things are happening.
- When I select a predictive text recommendation, then add a
punctuation (period, comma, question mark, etc.), a space is added
between the text and the punctuation mark. This is a new behavior,
which requires me to go back to delete the space.
- When I finish a sentence with a period, question mark, or other
terminating punctuation mark, the auto capitalize feature does not
work. I am using the native Samsung keyboard and have checked its
setting to make sure auto capitalize is turned on. However, auto
capitalize does work when a new paragraph is started.
- Most frustrating - when I have typed part of a word, then select a
predictive text recommendation, the selected recommendation does not
replace the word, but appends it. Also, when I type some non-alpha
characters (i.e., an open parenthesis), it doesn't matter what key I
press next, a 2nd open parenthesis (or whatever character I have typed) is added before I can type any add'l text.
Any suggestions? Unfortunately, I'm not sure when the app itself was last updated, but I'm guessing a recent update is to blame.
