Samsung Galaxy S7 disable automatic spaces when writing

When you write text on the Samsung Galaxy S7 in WhatsApp or another app, a space is inserted automatically after each word. This function may be useful for one or the other, but it may also interfere.

If you want to deactivate the function "Automatic spaces" on the Samsung Galaxy S7, please proceed as follows:

Navigate with your Samsung Galaxy S7 in the following Android submenu to deactivate the automatic bookmarks:

  • Home screen --> Settings -- > Language and Input --> Samsung Keyboard

If you scroll down a bit in this Android menu, you will find the option "Auto Space". Disable it with the slider so that the keyboard no longer automatically inserts a space between two words.

You now know how to disable the automatic spaces of the Samsung keyboard under Android.

Don't know how it happened but I suddenly lost my auto-space feature when I was swyping. Thanks for showing me how to get it back! I wanted it!

Agree with Sebastian. Stop indenting, leave auto space

Yes, that fixes the problem. But leaves the issue of spacing between words. I use swipe and depend on the auto spacing. Turning it off does fix the auto indent issue, but does not lower my stress level.
Technically correct.
Practically impractical.
