When writing using Bulgarian Cyrillic keyboard entering letter "ь" breaks the word prediction/suggestion process. Prior to entering(typing) it correct word is suggested, after one types "ь" the word that is being typed is no longer underlined(predicted) and the suggestion is no longer shown in top row. First several times ones tries to enter word with "ь" it works, after a new document/sms/mail is being composed - the described behaviour is experienced.

At Russian keyboard it works.

@peter It sometimes works on Bulgarian as well, but mainly when creating new document.

@zlatko - how you succeeded to add Bulgarian keyboard ?

@alexgs You just edit the keyboard file and add it in certain directory. Check this thread on TMO: talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=91917 There is even a ready rpm file for installation.

Bulgarian cyrillic keyboard is not provided by Jolla. Problems with that should be addressed to the author instead.

@pekka-vuorela I created the keyboard myself using the English one created by you. I modified the layout and some other small tweaks as well. I do not understand why entering a single letter shall break the predictive input? Can you give me hint? As everything else works OK and the dictionary is populated by the words I use.

Guessing, but as predictive engine doesn't recognize the locale, could get into some default-latin sort of state.

As a workaround you could try using the russian locale on .conf file. Could mess up predictions if both languages are used, but might still work a bit better.

Thank you for the suggestion, but it will mess a LOT with the word prediction, so issue will prevail the good stuff :) I will stick to what it is currently.
