Sometimes when I'm typing a unique word or proper noun on my phone, Google recommends for it to be autocorrected (I can tell because the word itself is underlined, and out of the suggested replacement words, the middle one is in bold). If I hit space to proceed to the next word, the underlined word (which I don't want changed) is replaced by the bold recommended word. This can be undone by hitting backspace (which reverts the word to what I had originally typed) and then space again (at which point it doesn't attempt to autocorrect).

Is there anyway to keep my word, as originally typed, without having to hit space+backspace+space? On Gboard for my iPhone it will always have my word as currently spelled as a suggested word that I can just touch to maintain. Is there a way to enable this for my Android?


Install a different keyboard like hackerskeyboard.
