    Hey everyone! I'm loving my new G6 and am going through my round of customizations.

    Installed Gboard this morning to replace the system keyboard, but the Android system keeps notifying me to select input method.

    Any idea how to get it to go away for good?

    Shouldn't be. I'm using Gboard also and it never asks which keyboard I want. It always come up Gboard. Have you checked in your input settings that Gboard is selected?

    Under settings go to language and input. If Google keyboard is already selected unselect and then reselect again as your keyboard.

    Occasionally when you download a new keyboard, you follow the prompts to assign that keyboard as your main but the system doesn't pick it up.

    All it takes is two 'active' keyboards... Then you'll get the notification since the system is asking you which one you want to use. Go into the system keyboard settings and make sure only the keyboard you use is enabled and it'll go away.

    I assume they are all active. When the little keyboard icon shows up in my notification bar I can select between those 3 keyboards without any additional steps.

    That notification is what the op is looking to eliminate. To do that, you have to disable the other keyboards.

    No worries!

    My annoyance about that function is the stupid world icon that takes up space on the keyboard. On GBoard, it stuffs it right where the smiley (which brings up the oh so critical GIF finder as well) should be.... Not a fan. But I never switch keyboards anyhow.
