Re: How to turn off perdictive text?

Hi @Tiddle,

 

If you are using the preinstalled keyboard app SwiftKey, you can disable so that it automatically inserts the predictive word but you cannot hide the prediction bar. To disable automatic inserting of the predictions, go to: Settings > Languages & input > On-screen keyboard > SwiftKey Keyboard > Typing > Typing & autocorrect > Auto insert prediction > Off.

 

If you want to completely disable the prediction bar I recommend that you try downloading a different keyboard app from Google Play Store.

 

Let me know if this answers your question! Slightly smiling Face

Re: How to turn off perdictive text?

I read that you select lanuage and swift keyboard- typing-typing autocorrect-auto insert predication-off    There is nothing like that on the L3  and I want the predictive turned off,  I simply cannot use it.
