I updated my OS to Paarlampi ( and I encountered weird response in my android applications. Before the update the capitalization of the first letter didn't work but that was not a problem.

After the update I'm typing a word and having a space or selecting word from the suggestions there will be a space. Sometimes I need to modify the word and when I return to the word with a backspace the software highlights the already written word and doubles its with the first letter. It makes annoying feature of not letting me to correct the words.

Is it possible to stop the program of re-highlighting the word? or stop the predictive text in already written text?

Thank you.

happens to me too. It's clearly a bug, so you should tag it as bug

I added the bug tag. I also tested that this happens in Finnish input as well as the English input.

I get that not every word is affected but almost every other word that is typed will duplicate the first letter when editing or returning to add a dot.

this happens to me to, in german input. i don't think this bug as related to the languages.

It might be something to do with alphabet input and the automated first letter capitalization that was added in the latest patch, Also there is an automated space after a dot. I hope that this update could be at least reversed.

I don't experience letter doubling problem with Chinese simplified (or modified Japanese input) after selecting the characters. Maybe someone can tell if Russian has the same problem...

My new Samsung 7 is having this problem. Do I need to update the software in my new phone?
