Turn Full Stops or Automatic Periods On or Off in Messages on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Ash0hley, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can turn on or off the option to add a quick full stop when writing messages.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button, located on top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen. Hold down, and swipe up. Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the home screen.
At the bottom, there will be icons. We are going to learn how to add a quick full stop to a message when writing on the HTC One M8. Then we will see how to turn it on or off.
Let's press this button, at the bottom of the home screen. It looks like a white text box. In the middle are three, green horizontal lines. It will open up our messages.
Choose a message that we can use for an example. To open the message, press down on it.
Now, press down where it says "Add text" at the bottom of the screen.
We're going to type hello. We can do that using the trace keyboard. The default for this is off on the HTC One M8, but it's very useful. It helps us to write very quickly. If you would like to see a video tutorial on how to set up the trace keyboard, then you can do that on our website. Please do, and we'll guide you through that process.
After we have written something, to add a full stop, double tap the space bar. It's a quick way to save time. It may be irritating to some people, who may just want a space, and they end up adding a full stop when they don't want to. Double-tap the space bar.
It has added a full stop at the end of the word and capitalized the next word. It can be useful, but it can be annoying, depending on how we like this function.
We can turn this setting on or off. To do this, press this icon, to go back. It looks like a white 'V' in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Press that, multiple times, until we get back to the home screen.
Now that we are back on the home screen, we need to find the "Settings" menu. To do that, we swipe the notification panel down. To do that, press down at the top of the screen, hold down, and swipe down.
Now we can see that the notification panel has appeared. Here, is the icon we're looking for. In the top right-hand corner of the screen, there is a white cog icon. This is our settings icon. Press down on it, and it will open up our "Settings menu".
We can see it says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Now we'll scroll down until we get to the"PHONE" section. It will say the word "PHONE" in a grey bar.
Scroll down until we find the words "Language & keyboard". Next to these words there is an icon that looks like a capital 'A' inside of a 3D box. Press down on this section.
We are looking for this option. It says the words "HTC Sense Input, Keyboard options". Press down on that section.
We're in a new menu and looking for the "Advanced" section. It says, "Advanced, More input settings." Press down on that. It will bring us to another menu.
This is the option we want. Second from the top. It says, "Quick '.' (full stop), Double-tap the space bar to insert a period." This is the function I have just shown you. We can see that it's activated because there is a green box with a white check in it.
If we wanted to deactivate this function, then press down on the box. Now it is deactivated, as the box is empty. If we're happy with that, then continue.
However, if we want to activate it, press down on the box. It turns green with a white check in it. It shows that this option is activated.
This then concludes our tutorial on how to turn on or off the option to add a quick full stop when writing messages on an HTC One M8.
