Honeycomb keyboard predictive text only showing names...

2011-10-09, 12:26 PM
Ran a search for this topic and found nothing. I have a Honeycomb tablet (Lenovo IdeaPad K1) and the keyboard is set to show spelling correction suggestions (I'm a terrible speller) but its only showing names of people in my contacts, its not showing all the words that would be derivatives of whatever word I've started typing like my phone does. What gives? Is there some setting buried somewhere I can't find to get it to work like the spelling correction I'm used to. they way its working now its basically useless. Thanks.

There does not appear to be any dictionary installed. I moved to thumb keyboard. It is a much better keyboard and also has predictive options.

I tried it out. I enabled it in the keyboard settings, And I must say its pretty bad. It only shows 1-2 words that is not even close to what you type.

All I can recommend at the moment is to try other keyboards till its fixed. Try these...

EDIT: I tried another keyboard with predictive text and it does the same as the Lenovo IME keyboard. Must be the builtin dictionary.

 

 CORECTION it was the Android keyboards predictive text that was not good, I wasn't on the Lenovo IME.

as for the other Keyboard the predictive text worked great.

 

I tried the http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:com.aitype.android.tablet

its split keyboard is awesome for 2 hands holding the tablet.
