I have a Nexus 4, and I'm using Google keyboard on Android 4.3.1. When I switch the keyboard language from French (the system language) to Polish, spellchecking stops. I have the polish spell-checking dictionary installed.

Suggestion works in both languages. Spell-checking works only in french.

What should I do?

I'd rather fix this problem than use another keyboard.

  • Looks to me you are mixing up 2 different things in your question: Auto-correction and Spell-check. Are you looking for Auto-correction (where the misspelled word is replaced) or for spell check (where the misspelled word is underlined)?

This may depend on the keyboard used (Android vs Google). I have fixed this by selecting Gboard and adding there the languages I need.
