    can anyone with 4.1.2 check something for me...

    I have both the Kii keyboard (very good btw) and Jelly Bean keyboard and neither of them are giving me predictions anymore. I press the space bar and the suggestion area at the top of the keyboard is blank. They both still correct words plus give options if I swipe they just aren't giving next word predictions. The funny thing is, if I check Kii keyboard within its own settings then it works fine, its within any other app that it won't predict.

    tbh I don't realy use the predictions as it breaks the flow too much and I just tend to tap and swipe away but I'm just interested to know whats gone wrong. It used to work and as I only upgraded to 4.1.2 at the weekend I'm thinking this might be the cause? The samsung keyboard works fine, but I'm not its biggest fan!

    Try going into Settings/Language and input. To the right of the Samsung keyboard tap the gear icon and then go into Predictive text. Now see if Next word prediction is checked.

    thanks. It does work on the samsung keyboard, its on the third party ones that it doesn't and the settings are correct - i.e. prediction is switched on. In fact the Kii keyboard works if you test it within its own settings, it just doesn't show predictions in any other app!

    I've since factory reset and its made no difference. Still doesn't show predictions so I feel its a 4.1.2 issue. Anyone else get this?
