Edit Custom Word List (not custom dictionary)
8220 running OS 4.6
Have searched high and low and cannot find any info on this. How do I edit the Custom Word List (database name: CustomWordsCollection) that SureType creates? I have numerous misspelled and garbage words in there. (Note that this a completely separate list from the custom dictionary list.)
This thread [forums dot crackberry dot com/f86/autotext-dictionary-229646] addressed the issue but did not come up with a means of editing the CustomWordsCollection database.
Using Desktop Manager, I exported the database as an ipd. I can look at the ipd with Amber Blackberry Converter (ABC), but I do not see a way to actually edit it. ABC will edit contacts and other databases, but not the CustomWordsCollection (best that I can tell).
I opened the ipd in Notepad++, which gave me some ability to edit it, but the file structure of an ipd is rather complex. It was clear enough how to correct a misspelled word, but not at all clear how to remove an entry, as there are a tremendous number of leading and trailing characters surrounding each entry.
Seems odd that there wouldn't be a way to edit this.

to get rid of the custom word collection just go to options -> lenguage, -> input options. and uncheck all the options there, it may sound stupid but
1- your phone will not lag typing
2- it will still predict your words better (in my opinion) if you are used to always type all the letters of the word.
im so happy right now i was getting frustrated of the input lag of this phone. give it a try like that and you will notice the diference.

I have had that same problem since I "upgraded" my old Pearl to the Flip. At first I thought SureType was the greatest thing since the full keyboard became available on phone but its been frustrating the **** outta me. I was about to post a new thread and saw your response. Tried it and worked great. ThanksClubenow

Hi, I'm a Gemini owner surfing for info on the Flip (because I want a new blackberry) and read your thread. On my 8520 I go to Options/Spell Check. And it gives me the option to check, edit and even delete words. Hope your Flip has it too!
