After installing the built-in Wubi option and one third-party, listed here:
- ibus's Wubi-Jidan86.
I looked for a few other options but could not find anything I could install.
In the two mentioned above, if you type more than one hanzi's pinyin, the select table disappears.
In normal Chinese Wubi input, you type the word and then select the hanzi associated with the word. If you type a sentence, you can select each of the possible words (words appear first) or possible hanzi (the possibilities for the current hanzi appear after all the word candidates). For example, if I type "wode jia shi dafang", I would then type "1 1 1 42" meaning
first word, first word, first word, fourth character and second character.
So, I'm looking for a Wubi that has the typical behavior. If I type a word, such as dafang, I should see all the candidates for the entire word "dafang" (maybe 10 possibilities would appear). Instead, I type daf, and the table disappears; furthermore, if I type only da, then there are hundreds of possibilities (so, there's no good workaround). The best I can do is use an online conversion tool, which requires VPN (a whole second set of problems).
