I have been using my Nexus 7 for schoolwork and I love it. One problem, however, is that when I connect to my Bluetooth keyboard I no longer get auto-correct suggestions. I then decided to install Swiftkey 3 and discovered that if I had SwiftKey set as the default I could see a prediction bar, but there was still no auto-correct/auto-completion.

How can I have auto-correct enabled when a hardware keyboard is connected?

Looks like it has been reported as a SwiftKey bug for the Nexus 10 as well.

Your best best is probably wait to get this fixed. I suggest you click the Vote button in their support site to increase the bug's priority. I just added 3 votes for you!

NOTE: I don't use SwiftKey. I use GO Keyboard.

  • I guess I'll just have to wait. I just tried Go Keyboard but it doesn't support shift/ctrl/caps on a physical properly.
