I recently updated my version of Android on my Nexus 4 and this is a really annoying thing I noticed.
In previous versions (I was on 4.0), the word that was typed displayed as the middle suggestion. This was ideal, as I never had to advert my eyes from the soft keyboard (I use the swipe typing, so this makes a big difference.
The newer version does not do this; instead, it displays three possible alternates. It's far less efficient and extremely annoying.
There's no specific setting I can find to change this. Is there any way to change this back or some obscure commination of settings that will cause this functionality?
