Turning off predictive text on Halo keyboard on Yoga Book

Is there any way to do this? its driving the insane...it gives me more mistakes because I just want to type--I don't want to have to jump up to the screen during a word to pick a number, and it also makes typing word/number combinations almost impossible. If I make a mistake and backspace to edit a word, it treats it as a new word. Simply put, I have a very high WPM and can correct myself and while this feature may help a lot of people it's just not for me. When I try to change it in settings though the settings only seem to be for the onscreen keyboard.

 

I would probably like to then off auto-correct as well.

Install Google Keyboard in place of the current one.

Re: Turning off predictive text on Halo keyboard on Yoga Book

I have a different problem. When I first bought the Yoga Book the predictive text word options were numbered and I just chose by pressing the number on the halo keyboard. Now the numbers have disappeared.  How do I get them back?

I have the same problem. Since updating to Android 7, I can no longer use the number keys to select a prediction. Any ideas?

Re: Turning off predictive text on Halo keyboard on Yoga Book

I cannot trigger Predictive Text when using the Halo Keyboard. The shortcuts mentioned in this thread don't work. Can you provide an explicit direction on how to re-enable it?
