In the last tip, I spoke about “Quicktype” and how it works with auto-correct. Well, this week I want to share with you how we can easily edit with “Quicktype”.
I would like for you to open “Notes” app. Then tap the “create new” icon located in the top – right corner. Next, please type this short sentence… Tellico village is a great place to live.
The first thing I want to do is capitalize the “V” in village. So let’s double-tap on the word “village” You should see just the word selected with the blue drag handles on each end of the word. Now tap the “shift key” and in the “Quicktype bar” you should find “Village”. Tap it.
Next, let’s make the word “great” in all caps. Again, double-tap the word “great” and then, double-tap the “shift key”. Tap “GREAT” from the “Quicktype bar” to select and replace it with all caps. To unlock the “shift key”, just tap it again.
And there you have it. No more moving the curser or deleting words to fix a small spelling error in the middle of a sentence.
