I’ve been using smart keyboard for awhile now and prefer it over the other alternatives. There is one pet peeve I have with it that drives me crazy. I use the voice-to-text a lot for convenience. Many of times I have to correct the text, which is no fault of smart keyboard, but during this correction, this seems to be where smart keyboard doesn’t act so “smart”. Maybe it’s the user or a setting I missed, but anytime a word touches what should be another separate word, and I put the cursor in between them to enter a punctuation mark to separate them, the suggestion panel goes blank. Of course, I can press the spacebar, and then the punctuation marks display, but then I have to manually click back with my finger or use the volume rocker, because if I use the back key, it just removes the space and I’m right back where I started with a blank suggestion bar. Seems this could be easily resolved with a condition like, if at anytime the suggestion bar is blank, force the standard punctuation marks to display.
Is this a bug, am I doing something wrong, or Is this just a limitation of Android?
Notice the suggestion bar below is blank. Seems like wasted real estate.
