1 Advanced Text Correction/Suggestion Routines

Text— cph=215— clh=128—

ProseEdit now includes a complete suite of correction and suggestion generating routines. This routines specifically target likely mistakes when typing on the iPhone's on-screen keyboard. Uniquely, the correction routines consider neighbouring words too - making them able to correct accidental spaces and return key presses. Just select any of the ‘words’ and tap on the ✔/✘ button for a correction which fixes both [more].

Text— cph=111— clh=77—

The correction algorithms take the current typing reactions into account where possible so can cope with unintended text expansion caused by your typo, so ‘I'm possible’ → ‘impossible’ in one action.

Text— cph=94— clh=59—

The lexicon still offers defined alternatives based upon meaning, and can be used to define new words or ban existing ones, either generally or just for this document/template.

The suggestion routines also offer:

3 Improved Word Capitalisation

Text— cph=94— clh=59—

Capitalisation now takes lexicon corrections into account, allowing simple rules to be embedded. The default lexicon includes corrections for ‘And’ and similar words.

4 Improved Spellcheck

Text— cph=180— clh=111— join=Y—

The spellcheck has been enhanced to make it more decerning - so it rejects more mistakes especially in short words. Additionally, defining a correction for a word in any lexicon used by a document now makes that word count as misspelt† even if it was a normally accepted word, unless also defined as a word separately [more].

Text— cph=59— clh=42—

† This only applies to ProseEdit's spellcheck, not the iOS Check Spelling setting.

Text— cph=111— clh=77—

Words resulting from word-based typing reactions are now considered to be correctly spelt, so if you have a reaction like ‘iphone → iPhone’, the word iPhone will be accepted even if it isn't defined in the current lexicons.

5.1 More Actions On Shown Chunks

Text— cph=128— clh=94—

In addition to being able to extract the shown chunks to Scratch, you can now change them all to a new chunk type, paste the currently copied styling to them or tab them. The state of markup chunks can also be adjusted [more].

Section— cph=42— clh=42— level=3—

5.2 Additional Search Qualifiers

Text— cph=94— clh=59—

You can now precede a text pattern with ‘title:’, ‘code:’, ‘done:’, ‘to do:’ to limit the search to those chunks [more].

6 Improved Typing Reactions

7 Extended Lexicon Support

Text— cph=284— clh=197—

Defining a correction within a lexicon now makes ProseEdit consider the word to be misspelt†, unless it is defined elsewhere. This gives the freedom to ban words completely or create non-preferred words which will pass the spellcheck, but will never be suggested as an alternative.

Corrections which simply alter case now contribute to the operation of the ‘Aa’ action in the User Edit Menu (and text corrections).

† This affects ProseEdit's tick/cross button. The iPhone's standard unlining of misspelt words remains unaffected, if enabled.

7.1 Default Lexicon

Text— cph=146— clh=111—

The entries have been updated to match the new correction functionality. More lexicon entries (like months of the year, etc.) have been added.

A user lexicon has been created, to make it easier to add your own definitions [more].
