Word completion in WM 6.1 not working with Standard Keyboard

Postby mpg187 » Mon Dec 28, 2009 8:47 pm

On my HTC when I use the standard Keyboard ("Keyboard") word completion doesn't work. It does on my iPAQ and works in "Compact QWERTY" and other ones.

I don't know what the Compact QWERTY is; it must be an HTC addition.

Have you double checked that the Suggest words when entering text option is checked on the Word Completion tab of the Input settings applet? Maybe the HTC Compact QWERTY has its own word completion settings which could explain why it worked but the standard Keyboard doesn't (but I don't have an HTC device to test).

It's strange, because I wasn't getting suggestions on my Samsung Omnia for some time, but they recently came back. I think it has its own settings for suggestions, but I don't recall disabling them (or reenabling them).

P.S. I've moved this to the Help/Software forum.

It is turned on, but still nothing...

I am sure Windows Mobile would have it, my iPAQ with PPC 2003 has it...

I am including these screenshots I took:

Sorry for double posting, but there are situations where I find it necessary and this is one because if I simply edited my last post, you might not have known I added these since you already read the post...

That first keyboard doesn't look like the standard Windows Mobile keyboard (it looks more like Resco Keyboard Pro), so maybe it doesn't support word completion. Did it ever work in the past?

Try activating the standard WM keyboard (probably just called Keyboard in the SIP list) and see if that displays the pop-up suggestions (it should look like a pop-up menu).

This is the default WM keyboard (the small keys view):

I can't get word completion to work, either. :?

That looks like the OSK on my iPAQ. Simply White line boxes with symbols inside them. On my Phone they are Blue and have shadows as the screenshot shows. Weird HTC must have modified it. Maybe I should contact their support and ask them...

I wonder if using a 3rd party OSK would work? Do you know any good (preferably free) ones that work with WM6 and word completion?

You could search my links page for "input method". One that I know is free is PDAMill TopKey.
