They really hit it out the park with this last update, i. finding new things out all the time that are either not working properly or not working at all since updating. I even went as far as to factory reset my phone which was for no reason I found out cuz it didn't fix anything, I've formatted the cache as well. 

But the newest thing I've found out not working properly is the swipe feature, and it's on every single keyboard cuz I've tried a few trying to fix this, but on certain apps you aren't able to use the swipe feature when typing so you have to type with single letters. But it won't be for the entire app, it'll be certain aspects, like in OfferUp responding to a msg you can't swipe, but creating a ad you can. Stuff like that. Same thing on Mercari & I've made sure everything is fully updated, I've uninstalled all the apps& keyboards and reinstalled but still nothing. I've even went as far as reverting back to previous builds of the apps and still nothing 

Is anyone else experiencing this?? It drives me crazy trying to type key by key -- letter by letter.. Samsung when are you going to release a update fixing all these issues ppl are having. I've NEVER owned an iPhone but this last 2wks I've actually considered it ...

Came here looking for an answer. I hate it so much I have things to sell and don't want to use offer up because of the typing. Even the non swype things don't work like erasing the last word by hitting the backspace once, or automatic spacing.

Yeah if swipe is broken for the app like every feature will be broken it seems. One thing i can share with you to do that I'm doing cuz I wanted to take advantage of ppl looking for gifts(& id really suggest you do list those things soon to take full advantage cuz it's almost over!) I use OfferUp, Mercari, & eBay rn & i had some high $ items sitting a month or 2 but this last 1.5wks i made over $1,000 getting rid of them. A cpl times i had to cancel cuz an item sold on 2 diff apps like 12hrs apart. I was like you so annoyed I didn't want to type out new listings letter by letter but w/Xmas getting closer& Samsung doing nothing i figured i better quit being lazy lol& totally glad i did.

But what i did was that since i couldn't swipe in OfferUp & needed/wanted to get those listed, i just went to a diff app where swipe works (like a txt msg) and i swiped out the ad or response and i just copy & pasted. Which wasn't as convenient as if everything were normal but it helps a ton lemme tell you
