OMG! Thank you Daniel! This has been driving me nuts in both Telegram and OneNote. I'd stopped using forum apps altogether. This is the exact fix. I disabled the Grammarly setting and everything works now. I also decided to switch to the Microsoft SwiftKey keyboard instead of the crap Samsung keyboard.

I don't have a Samsung but I've used the Grammarly keyboard for a few months. The official one. I've had similar scroll-jumping issues in couple of apps. Will switch to the Google one for a while and see if the random scrolling goes away. I think it mostly a problem with "web" apps. I also didn't think the problem could be the keyboard app, but it makes sense when I think more about it. Android 11.

Crap! crap! crap! I traded my Galaxy S20 for an iPhone last month because I couldn't live with the random text replacements. I write a lot of long work emails from my phone and this was a complete deal-breaker for me.

Large chunks of texts would just mysteriously disappear when I wasn't looking. Paragraphs kept swapping order. Incomplete sentenced (that I KNEW I'd compelted earlier) scattered throughout my messages. It was a real pain in the apple pie. Completely unusable.

It didn't occur to me that it was the keyboard! I didn't know I could install other keyboards either, so knowing that alone wouldn't have helped. (I could never have typed anything this long with the S20.)

I have owned the Note9 and Note 10. Now have the Note20. Loved the first 2; no problems HATE the note 20. The grammerly update has been the biggest pain. I switched keyboards and the key layout changed to I don't know what; took me hours to get it changed back; finally got it done. Now with grammerly the text correct is useless. What is with the highlighting 2 words at a time when I don't want to correct but one. And adding commas, I don't care about commas. I disabled grammerly; didn't work; have to disable all text correct to get rid of grammerly. Just got off Samsung support. they wanted me to reset my phone. Hell no. I am almost having to use my stylus to type anything now. What a pain. I will never go back to an iphone but now I don't want a Samsung anymore because every update has been crap. Have a motorola and don't like it either. Any suggestions for a good phone?

Fey Tayler, I just switched from the Samsung Galaxy S22 to Google Pixel 7a. I’ve grown more and more resentful of Samsung’s half-baked “Android customization” and slow updates.
