Samsung notes spurious characters

Apprentice

Since the last update whenever I type into notes each character I type is randomly followed by either an exclamation mark or a random word. For example if I wanted to type "bits" I would get b!I!t!sand. I did post something a couple of days ago and got a reply asking me to reset the keyboard in settings which I did but hasn't worked. Whoever replied to my post asked to let them know if it was successful but I've no idea where I made the post or where I would find their reply.

Hi @590101 

 

is this only happening when you're typing into the Notes app or does it happen wherever you're typing?

Just when I use the Notes app, typing anywhere else or in other apps is ok

Are there any updates pending on the app, @590101? It's strange that it's only happening on this and nothing else as the keyboard should be standardised for all apps.

There was an update, but it's made no difference even after restarting the phone

I have this same issue, and it's driving me crazy.  Samsung S8, whatever latest update to the Samsung Notes app, adding random characters when I try and type and only have this issue in the Notes app.
