Default [Q] Samsung Keyboard - Language change - icon or spacebar ?

I have a Note 3 and suddenly out of nothing the keyboard changed template and instead changing languages by long pressing+sliding the space bar it now shows a globe icon wich must be pressed to select the language.

I have already messed with all possible settings in order to go back to the space bar method wich is much faster with no success.

I know it worked on the space bar way until a few days ago, and I see there was a Samsung Keyboard Update wich was installed.

Have someone here the same issue ? Anyone knows if it is possible to go back to the previous behavior ?

Thanks for any help on this.

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

Thank you luckybun.
It worked for me, only the accessibility setting was for FBQuickview (that works with the Galaxy Gear). I disabled it under the accessibility setting and the spacebar started working again as a language changer.

I had the same problem with my Galaxy S4. I don't have any Pebble app.
I went to accessibility settings and I disabled Greenify Service for non rooted devices.

Hope it helps
