    Repeated Input Method Notification?

    Just got the Atrix HD Saturday (yay a day early!). I am using Swiftkey as my default keyboard, I also have Google voice typing checked in that setting screen. For some reason, seemingly at random, in my notification bar it will ask me to select my input method (its Swiftkey I said!) This happens 3-4 times throughout the day. I can't pin it to any app or event. The only way to clear the notification is to select Swiftkey again, and then go into it's settings and back out.

    I've just tried disabling the Google voice type, maybe I'm not supposed to have both checked. (The other options are Motorola Input and Swype.) I'll update if it happens again.

    Anyone else get this issue?

    I'm using Swiftkey as well (3?) and haven't had this issue yet.

    Maybe try switching back to Moto, uninstalling , re-installing and selecting again? Or clearing the cache on Swiftkey in Manage apps?

    I've noticed on my GNex that anytime the keyboard is open, the notification bar has the keyboard icon which, when swiped down, gives me the choice of input method. It does not, however, force me to make a change.

    Ahh, yes, you are correct there. That's a 'feature' of ICS when the keyboard is open. That may be it?

    Thanks guys, I see now that if I ignore it, the notification goes away when I close the keyboard. How annoying.

    Glad to hear that's all it was. I just ignore it and keep using Swype.

    Yeah previously you would have to long press in the text input field but now that opens up text editing features like copy, paste, cut, etc. So to compensate they moved the selection to the notification bar. Took me a good 30 minutes before I understood how that worked and to ignore it when I put my OG Atrix on CM9.
