Default Keyboard apps

I can't figure out how to switch to a different keyboard (other than stock). I've downloaded ICS keyboard, turned it on in settings...still can't access it.

Usually press and hold in the text field would bring up choices but that doesn't work.

Any ideas ?

You usually still have to long press in text field and 'choose input'



OP: did you try long pressing from a text message text box?

I downloaded Swiftkey also, and that does allow you to switch by bringing up the check box.

The first keyboard I downloaded was one of the ICS keyboards and I could turn it on in settings but not actually switch to it.

That's the first thing I tried...long press in a text field..does nothing....

I'm going to try others later today

Let us know when/if you figure it out. If this feature is changed in Sense then I'm sure others will be wondering as well

It is no longer a long press in the input field to change keyboards.

Now, whenever you have an input screen active, there is a notification (available through the pulldown) that will let you change keyboards.
