In the on screen keyboard you can press space for a while and get a list of supported languages, most people will not have need of seeing them all, you will only use those languages you know which in most cases would be like English and your native language, having 5-6 other languages as options are just stupid.

Only display languages the user has enabled (should be a configuration where you select enabled languages, also a neutral option which can be used without word suggestions and custom keyboard layout).

So if I choose to display English, Finnish and Swedish, then when holding the space for a while, I should only see those three options (no Russian, German or so...).

If possible, it had been nice to have the feature from Android keyboard, making a swipe movement on the space would change to the next/previous language.

You can do this now by editing the layouts.conf file in /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/layouts/ (comment out the languages you don't want in the menu). But I agree that this should be possible to do from settings, without terminal and developer mode.

And by the way, this is a duplicate of the question I just linked. :)

I feel toghether to be difficult to find things, really wish it could have be something more classic like Bugzilla. Shouldn't this wan be properly marked as duplicate?

@Trizt, yes, closing as duplicate. I agree that it's not always easy to find possible duplicates...
