Strange word suggestion bar behaviour. Ancient Android tablet


#1

Ok, I can mostly spell, but I find the word suggestion bar helpful even if it’s just to speed up my tragically slow typing.

So, normally when I’m typing a reply, I have a bar above the keyboard that brings up a list of words as I’m typing. Also I have fat fingers so it helps with that shit too.

Tonight, this bar has disappeared when I’m typing a reply, but, as I created this topic and typed the title in the title box, it re-appeared, but then when I started to type in the main text box, it disappeared again.

Logged out and logged back in, been through every setting I can find, but it’s either incredibly well hidden or I’m more stupid than I previously thought.

This is the only site it’s misbehaving on.

Help?

1-3 it’s your error

7-4 it’s a device issue

20-1 bar

Moar codeine required.


#4

Alcohol induced, without doubt.

I reckon you’re dead on there, but it’s weird that it’s only this site, if I’d screwed up a device setting, it would be on every forum, not just this one.


#6

Did you not read my earlier post? I’ve run out of alcohol. Well, alcohol I like to drink anyway. There’s shitloads of Baileys left.

Kill yourself now, it’s really not worth it

Definately, considering it works exclusively in the title box when creating a topic, but not in the main text box either creating a topic, or replying to one. Really odd.


#9

Baileys is your friend :grinning:


#10

No, it’s Satan’s vomit.

No redeeming features whatsoever.


#11

Now, this is odd too, I’m now posting from my phone rather than my tablet and the bar thingy is still working on that.

You need to change your tablet(s)


#13

You might well be right, on both counts


#14

Any sensible suggestions from grown ups?


#15

There are other forums? :open_mouth::open_mouth:


#16

Grown ups on here, you really do need to change your tablet(s).


#17
