Bigger space bar in t9 layout

There may already be a setting for this but if not can it be done when in T9 mode the space bar is very small can it be made wider if there is already a way to make it wider could someone please tell me thanks

Long push the 123 button to get into settings then go into general settings scroll down till you see hide the comma button to expand the space bar.

Better yet, go into General Settings, and then uncheck the T9 Next key option, instead.
