I have the Nexus 9 and the HTC folio keyboard. I cannot get the keyboard switcher to display in the navigation bar. I have checked the settings for apps and both Google keyboard and Swiftkey apps are enabled and the notifications boxes are ticked. I want to display the switcher so that can turn off the folio keyboard which is a battery hog.

things have changed a bit in Lollipop. On the Nexus 6, for example, there's a new softkey you can use to change keyboards.
