The windows version really needs a way to use predictive text. Unless I'm mistaken, there's no current way to make the hardwired predictive text work in Scrivener, only correct what you've already written. this is an ease of access feature that really needs to be on both versions, not just iOS.

This isn't a feature on iOS either, nor macOS, though in both cases these are things the operating system does as a function of the current language/keyboard settings. Isn't that how it should work on Windows? Does it require every single developer to invent their own complicated and extensive dictionary prediction system from scratch?

It works exactly like that if you turn on the 'Multilingual Text Suggestions' option in Windows 10
