iPad Suggest Button

Dear Computer Lady,

I am using my new iPad and I absolutely love it! I do have one question though;

When I hold my finger on a word, to select it, a row of options appears. I understand what Cut, Copy and Paste do, but what is, “Suggest”?

Thanks, Linda

Dear Linda,

Suggest is kind of like spell check. If you type a word and it doesn’t quite look right, you can highlight that word, tap on, “Suggest” and see a list of similar words that you might have intended to type.

If one of the words is the one you intended to type, you can simply tap on that word to replace the word you typed with the suggested word.
