  • If the system tray icon of Typing Assistant shows Typing Assistant, it means you are working at a Disabled application window for real-time suggestion. Just put the input focus on that window and press Ctrl+Alt+D(default hotkey) to enable it.

You can find the Typing Assistant dictionary files here:
  • Version 5.0 or higher
    [Installed version]

    Windows Vista:
    C:\Users\{your user name}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\{Typing Assistant install directory}\Lib\
    Windows 7/8:
    C:\Users\{your user name}\AppData\Roaming\{Typing Assistant install directory}\Lib\

    [Portable version]
    ...\{Typing Assistant install directory}\Lib\


13. Typing Assistant shows "Open file error!" when I launch it. Why?
Typing Assistant will copy some data files to drive C of your computer when you install it. When the program launches it will load those data files. Message "Open file error!" means Typing Assistant can't find those data files. Perhaps it is because your OS rejects the installer copying data files to your drive C.

If you encountered this problem, you can try this - use the portable version of Typing Assistant, not the installed version. The portable version will save its data files at the program directory, not drive C.



14. An unwanted space is added when type accented character or punctuation in MS Office(Outlook, PowerPoint, ect), how to fix this?
Typing Assistant needs to hook the characters user typed. Because of the special processing mode in MS Office, there will possibly add an extra space before the accepted character or punctuation. You can disable an option in MS Office to avoid this problem.

Notes:
  • We settled this problem in MS Word from Typing Assistant 7.0.
  • The demo below is for Office 2013. You can find similar option in other Office version.

see demo for Outlook 2013        see demo for PowerPoint 2013






15. How to uninstall Typing Assistant?
Please follow the steps below.
  • [Step1]: Exit Typing Assistant if it is running. see demo

  • [Step2]: Uninstall Typing Assistant.
    [Installed version]: Open Windows Control Panel >> Add and Remove Programs, find Typing Assistant and uninstall it.
    [Portable version]: Just find Typing Assistant folder (usually named "TypingAssistant_USB") and delete all files in it. If some files can't be deleted directly, please restart your computer and delete again.


16. Typing Assistant can't complete suggestions in memoQ, how to solve this problem?
Typing Assistant can show suggestions but you can't complete it by ENTER key in memoQ, if you get this problem, there is an inside tip: select some text in memoQ and press Ctrl+C, then Typing Assistant will return to work. You just need to do this once. That means, make your Windows clipboard been filled with some text, instead of empty or other type of content; it is hard to explain the reason, but the method works.


17. Failed to install Typing Assistant with error message "Error 740: The requested operation requires elevation.", how to fix this?
Mouse right-click on the Typing Assistant setup file, then select Run as Administrator.
