When using a physical keyboard, swiftkey tablet doesn't auto correct or insert word prediction with space bar on nexus 10
When I use a physical keyboard (i tried using two different bluetooth keyboards) the predictions auto capitation and even autocorrect don't work. I put the settings on and off and there is no change. I'm using the latest android version and the latest swiftkey tablet version.

This is by far the biggest glitch with the tablet app. It's EXTREMELY annoying to have predictions scrolling quickly at the bottom of the screen AND YOU CAN'T EVEN SELECT THEM!!
Cmon guys...this is a comparatively expensive app, fix the bugs please

This also happens on the Asus Transformer Prime TF201. Frankly, it's ridiculous that this has not been fixed yet. The app is not cheap and you make us buy twice (for phone and tablet), this seems very simple to fix and it's been asked for months, how about you give us some feedback??

Just going to bump this because it really needs fixing.
Also it is really annoying having the predictions show up at the bottom of the screen if the spacebar doesnt autocorrect them. If you cant add the option to autocorrect with a physical keyboard then please at least allow the live predictions to be turned off.
Also true for cyanogenmod for hp touch pad.

please for the love of god fix this!! i use my nexus 7 for school notes and not having autocorrect is insanely annoying and is forcing me to look for alternative keyboards. HELP!
It's amazing that this isn't already part of the newest version. I'm typing this on my Nexus 7 right now (with a physical keyboard) and it is very difficult to change my words I have spelled wrong because we do not have the auto correct.
PLEASE FIX THIS!!! I would love auto-correct when using my bluetooth keyboard. I get predictions but I have to press the screen for them to work. The physical keyboard should put in the middle suggestion on when the space key is pressed on the physical keyboard. Turning on the setting in options does nothing.
This would be really nice to have. Perhaps even a way to force the suggested work by doing a function+spacebar instead of just spacebar. Or some way to easily toggle it on and off.
auto correction would be annoying if I was writing code, but great if i was typing an email. I'd hate to have to keep going into the settings just to toggle that on and off.
Please. It's beyond silly that this is not already an option. This alone is what keeps me from using Swiftkey on my Nexus 7. Why would I want to use touchscreen suggestions when my hands are already on the keyboard? Not to mention the waste of screen space and system resources to run predictions I'm not even using.
We need this!
