    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 whose system has recently been updated to Android 4.1.2.
    I write in 5 input languages and before the update I could freely do that using the Samsung keyboard.

    Now, after the update, I have 2 problems:
    1) No matter which set of 5 languages I choose in Samsung Keyboard Settings -> Input Languages, it's telling me "Maximum number of supported languages (4) reached" (!)
    2) One of the input languages I use, Georgian in particular, disappeared altogether from the list of "Available languages" whereas it was there before ("update language list" does not help).

    Does anyone else have this problem and any ideas how to fix it?
    And does anyone know whether this is a bug and they are going to fix it or they honestly think you cannot possibly use more than 4 languages in your daily life?

    Thank you.

    Now we are in 2017, I bought a Samsung S8 with Android 7 Nougat which is supposed to be one of the top in technology, but still I get the same problem, the OS is not smart enough to handle more than 4 languages. What a shame !!!!

    A limitation of the Samsung stock keyboard possibly, try Gboard or Swiftkey or Swype instead.
