I have searched high and low between the swiftkey settings and the dock settings, and cannot find a way to disable the suggestion bar when I am docked. I'm aware of the ability to disable autocorrect, but I would rather have the screen space. Do I have to just use the work around of selecting a different keyboard when I'm doing word processing?

I'm already using Tasker which doesn't support changing input methods and I really didn't want to add yet another context-aware app. I was also already using Secure Settings to enable expanded desktop when docked from Tasker (using the "Keyboard Out" context). Turns out if you enable the "Helper" in Secure Settings you can set the input method (I chose the plain Android AOSP keyboard) in any of your contexts!
