Auto correct

Typing in English is no problem. However for language studying chances are you run into auto correction (caps, word correction) during typing on another language are pretty high. Anki used to be excluded from this behaviour but nowadays it is not. I would love to type my Hungarian words without any auto correction by being back to be excluded from it, while I’d keep the option on though. And the capitalisation...

    I agree it's a pain - unfortunately Apple's "what you see is what you get" editor doesn't currently provide the ability to disable auto correction.

    Hi Damien,
    Thanks for the quick reply. So I wonder why Anki iPhone was without auto correction since the beginning?

    The original editor used a simple text input component. Apple does support disabling autocorrect in that component, but the component is not capable of showing images or styling.

    Well, although I appreciate you letting me know it is sad.

    Having installed the actual anki version, autocorrect on mac is switched off by default. How can I enable it?

    The original post was about the iOS app. The computer version does not use Apple libraries, and thus I'm afraid does not support autocorrect.
