Custom words


Nebo isn't that familiar with custom words. Therefore, to obtain their conversion, you'll need to make an extra effort writing them. Just find the category your custom word falls into and apply our recommendations:


Proper nouns and invented words (e.g. Pivawu, craaaazy)

  1. Draw your characters as best as possible and don't mix cursive and print scripts.
  2. If the word suggested by Nebo isn't correct, tap it to open a list of suggestions. Your custom word should be there.
  3. If your custom word isn't in the list, rewrite it by adding a space after each character. As you go, freeze each character's typeset format by tapping it in the conversion preview or in the list of suggestions.
  4. When each character is correct in the conversion preview, remove all spaces with a join gesture.

File names, pseudonyms and product names (e.g. File-1200, User75i, iPad2018)

  1. Draw your characters as best as possible and don't mix cursive and print scripts.
  2. If the word suggested by Nebo isn't correct, rewrite it by creating distinct consistent blocks after which you add a space. If needed, browse the suggestions to find a block's correct typeset format.
  3. When each block is correct in the conversion preview, remove all spaces with a join gesture.

Complex passwords (e.g. Az3#4PI!)

  1. Be prepared to draw your characters as best as possible, to not mix cursive and print scripts, and to add a space after each character.
  2. As you go, freeze each character's typeset format by tapping it in the conversion preview or in the list of suggestions. Mind the case: upper or lower.
  3. When each character is correct in the conversion preview, remove all spaces with a join gesture.

Your custom word is ready for conversion when it appears correctly in the conversion preview.

Whenever you're ready, convert your custom word by double tapping it, or wait to be done with your entire text block.
