Exclamation [Q] How to disable onscreen keyboard.. (note 8)

Bought a new zaggkeys for my note 8... the keyboard is really light and Im really enjoying typing with it... The only issue is that the Samsung keyboard is screwing everything up. I called samsung in regards to how I can disable the onscreen keyboard. The assistant was nice and walked me through to the applications and tried to help me force stop the keyboard. After a reboot it pretty much didnt work. The other problem that the keyboard causes is that if i press the Caps key on the keyboard the onscreen keyboard sees this like a weird command and it starts to display weird characters. Im thinking is there anything I can possibly do, some sort of app i can install, if i need to root so be it ill do it... if not would a rom allow me to disable the onscreen keyboard? And yeah I just typed all this with the zaggkeys and it was fluid and much better than the flumsy amazon keyboards. Its expensive but the cybermonday deal helped. Overall if i can disble the samsung keyboard this note would be the perfect tablet.

Is your device rooted? You can try to use root file explorer and Mount as rw and delete the apk file in system/apps

I just use an app from Play called Null Input Method.

Also try Null Keyboard. Null Input Method may be preferred because it provides an easy way to switch back on the fly if needed. YMMV
