Keyboard not always capitalizing the letter I and not auto spacing after words

After the latest update on my Note 10 plus I noticed that the i isn't auto capitalizing all the time. I delete it from the keyboard and add it back as a capital and that works for a bit but then stops working again. Also the auto-space feature doesn't auto space after some words like was. Anyone else experiencing this and found a fix?

Re: Keyboard not always capitalizing the letter I and not auto spacing after words

Are you using a specific app when you are experiencing these symptoms?


I would recommend resetting your keyboard settings. Give these steps a try: go to the messages app > tap the text space to open the keyboard > tap the gear on the right side of the keyboard > tap on reset to default settings > tap on reset keyboard settings > tap on reset


Next step would be to test your device in safe mode. If your phone is misbehaving, it's possible that a third-party app is causing the issue. To figure out what app is acting funny, you can use the Safe Mode feature. In Safe Mode, your phone won't run any third-party apps. This allows you to easily identity and remove the app that may be causing the problem. Give this link a try:


I would also recommend wiping the cache partition on your device. The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly. Give these steps a try: 

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby / Power key.
  3. When the Android logo displays, release both keys.
  4. An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
  5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
  6. Press Bixby / Power key to select.
  7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Bixby / Power key to select.
  8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
  9. Press the Bixby / Power key to restart the device.
