I make so many typos. I’m always having to return to posts to edit.

I make so many typos. I’m always having to return to posts to edit. My iPad makes the problem even worse. It will change the words I type.

I'm thinking you're not alone in that.

Definitely not.  I'm always editing my posts, even after I've proofread them.

 

You can always turn off 'auto-correct' and the iPad won't change what you've typed.  But I make so many mistakes myself that when I tried that, it was worse!😆

@Mindy D, you're certainly not alone in that... and any device can be less than helpful.  On the iPad, you have the option of disabling the autocorrect feature, if you want to.  It's in Settings, General, Auto-Correction.

Happy posting!😊

It happens to me too. Have no fear if you don't catch the mistake there is someone on the board that has nothing better to do then point our our mistakes! I say give them something to do, and don't worry about it!

The ac on my iPad will be my undoing.

My font is too small. I can't read what I've written half the time.

 a typo can make a much better story

 

once while reading a lengthy story here the person wrote "screeching peasants" instead of "screeching pheasants" (and this wanted to change screeching to scratching)
