[ibus-typing-booster][F20] - Support for the surrounding text needs to be implemented [RFE]
Last modified: 2014-01-28 22:09:01 EST
Description of problem:
In F20 TC6 as tested, the support for the surrounding text needs to be implemented.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add hunspell or typing-booster input source for any locale from Region &
(Here I consider typing-booster:bn-IN or hunspell:bn-IN for example and
taken itrans as keymaps)
2. Select the keymaps mentioned in step 1.
3. For example type "baag" and press "SPACE" key
4. Observe the candidate window with predictive words disappears as soon as
user press the "SPACE"
5. Now press "LEFT ARROW KEY" once
6. Observe the text.
After step 6, the text does not get selected again to let the same previous candidate window with same predictive word list appeared.
The text should get selected again as before (when user typed "baag") and the same candidate window with the same predictive word list should appear.
Additional info: Even if you press "BACKSPACE" instead of navigation key (LEFT ARROW KEY) the result remains the same.
This issue was observed by Krishnababu in testing event we had yesterday.
So it often happen we do not get exact word suggestions from candidate list and user commit the part of word and try to again edit it.
But during edit itb start showing new suggestion based on last part of word. So having surrounding text will help users to get appropriate suggestion and also appropriate words will get added in user db.
Yes, I thought about such a feature as well a while ago.
Would be nice. I’ll try to implement it.
Thats nice. I saw the same feature on default predictive IME on Android as well.

The above change implements the reopening of the preedit only
for backspace, not for the arrow keys. Doing it for the arrow
keys is more difficult, I am still trying to figure out how
to do it. But I wanted to release the fix for backspace because this
