Anyone getting this or know a fix?
Nope, no fix.
I think we're the victims of uncontrolled change, or change for change's sake.
So - we've had the same way to change input since - forever. It was not that adult a puzzle. Now, that simply has to change. Because.
And what if someone needs to Google how to change the input now because they have a borked keyboard or something and long-pressing a text field doesn't cut it?
Simple, add a nag to the notifications. Nag - because changing keyboards is not something you do often, but after Google committed the change to the input method, they found out why the change sucked. Rather than recant - add a nag.
Weak. Really weak. But, nothing we can do.
Hey Google! Thanks for the nagging popup in the bar. It only violates Remedial UI Design 99.
