Is there anyway to stop my iPad doing that stupid autocorrect thing when it thinks I've mistyped something? Or perhaps even better, to add things to its dictionary?

It always assumes I mean rofl when I type rotrl. Similarly Paizo becomes anything from patio to pairing, (apparently depending on context).

For a while it seemed to have learnt some of my commonly used terms, but since the last update it doesn't seem to remember them any more. :(


Settings->General->Keyboard

Turn off auto-correct.

It does learn things as you type though. If you 'misspell' a word on purpose, then tap the correction bubble to cancel it, and repeat the process several times the word gets added to the dictionary. Unfortunately it's not a predictive learning process, so you have to continue doing it for plurals, possessives and the like. I don't know how many cancelled corrections it takes, maybe 4-5?

You can also create shortcuts, so you could make RotRL (mine actually autocorrects to that because I've typed it so many times), be a short cut for 'Rise of the Rune Lords'.
