Autocorrect in tag bar

Autocorrect pops up very frequently when typing in the tag toolbar’s search box.

First, it’s not very helpful. (Suggestions are pretty poor when only given 3 or 4 characters.)

Second, trying to click on a tag in the tag list under the autocorrect suggestion often results in unintentionally accepting the suggestion.

I’m not sure what would be lost if autocorrect was just completely disabled in this particular field.

Been experiencing undesirable behavior in the tag field lately as well - forced to existing tag + accepting wrong tag prematurely.

Wait, which fields are we talking about specifically? Is this on Mac or iOS?


Mac is working properly, not showing suggestions

I tried tapping on the 2nd line “corestory/gamebook”

Gotcha. Not sure why autocorrect is enabled there. Will fix.

Sorry to piggyback on an old topic, but I’m now having a similar problem on my mac m1, using drafts v.43. I try to create a new tag in the tag bar, but it only gives me already used tags or autocorrects to something I don’t want.

Workaround: I type a word, type space, then the word I want, erase the first word and space, and I’m left with the word tag I want.

Curious. Anyone else seeing this?

I experience the same issue on my M1 MacBook Air.

@jtfast @jaymf I cannot reproduce this in v44 on either iOS or Mac. Could you test in this updated version, and if still seeing it, provide more details about the OS version(s) you are running.

I’m running 14.4.1 and drafts v44 on both my mac mini m1 and my MacBook air m1.

More specifics on the issue. For example, I have a draft with no tags. In the tag bar I type “x” knowing I have no tag beginning with that letter. My "x "types but is immediately changed to “s”, a letter beginning tags I do use. Then, as I type, the tags are narrowed down as usual.

If I type the first letter of tags I do use, it gives me this pic list, but sometimes if I type a second letter that is not in an established tax the letter is changed to one that is established, sometimes I’m allowed to type it. Strangely inconsistent.

Also, I have the same problem with both computers.

Hope this helps, but I suspect I’m still too vague!

I was entering “xray”… I have no other tags that begin with X. Autocorrect changed it twice… then, on the second attempt, it accepted “xray” as a tag.
