In order getting jolla's VKB functionality onto a more enhanced level, a seemlessly integrated VKB contents / dictionary management might be very handy to:

  • efficiently correspond in different languages (as N900 for example)
  • purging out certain sensitive / inappropriate items of the VKB cache ( e.g. plaintext password entries, incompletely stored items,... )
  • defining / adding certain more complex words ( e.g. "probability distribution" )
  • proposing ( maybe in different color renditions ) synonyms

--> and more to be added as proposed by community feedback on this subject - even emoticons for the fun of it ;-) ...

There has to initiated a long-term solution ( also taking up @Mohjive 's idea ) when tapping on any word proposal above the VKB one could take control of it ( i.e. purge / appearance / affiliation / priority ) .... and maybe if tapping in between proposals or the "ribbon" of proposals you're able to manage general VKB cache settings / dictionaries / online db syncs, etc. .... personally, as I am communicating multi-lingually on a daily basis I'd very delighted if Asian (esp. Japanese) input & predictive dictionaries could coexist intelligently aside Latin-based input layouts / dictionaries.

This request should not be perceived limited to erroneously stored passwords in connection to Android apps only. Thanks !

proposing synonyms would probably clutter the suggestions panel.

Isn't this related to this other question? https://together.jolla.com/question/11823/allow-adding-word-to-keyboard-dictionnaries/

... it is a more general, enhanced request - not bare (passive) dictionaries only, but combined with advanced management & versatile / intelligent Thesaurus functionality (e.g. synonyms) so to speak ...

ok, you can keep it separated, but bear in mind that adding with your idea to the other question may get you some more votes, and hence more visibility from Jolla.
