When i try to input Chinese characters, sometimes the character or the world I am trying to type in doesn't appear in the in-letter suggestions. I know there is a way to show all the characters associated with the PinYin I input because I somehow stumbled on it once by accident, after that I can't invoke that list anymore.
Does anyone know the gesture to invoke that list?
BTW, what's up with this site? the keyboard behave very strange when I am typing this message.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you for your question.
Can you please clarify which list you are referring to?
You can enable up to 3 Language on by swiping down on your BlackBerry Z10 home screen and selecting Settings > Language and Input > Input Languages > Add remove languages.
Are you referring to Spell Check?

Which model of BlackBerry smartphone are you currently using?

I'm not sure of any way to display a separate full character list for predicted text for a language.
Once the language is enabled in your settings you can invoke it by holding your finger on the globe icon to the left of the space bar until the language appears and swiping up on your virtual keyboard.
This should display all of the available characters for the language on the virtual keyboard.
If there are difference between how this works for the language input for Chinese I am not aware of it.

To explain this a little better, here are a few screenshots I took:
For example, I like to type Chinese character "剩", which is pronounced as "sheng", so I invoke Chinese keyboard and start typing s h e n g, and the screen looks like
So except the Chinese character suggested on the blank space key, I don't find any other suggestions... that's fine, I found a way to get more suggestions by swiping up on either Q or W key, which has a suggestion "sheng" on it in the last picture, then I got this:
As you can see, on the first row there are 5 Chinese characters suggested, but none of them is what I want. So currently I had to keep typing to make a common word that uses the character I want, like "sheng'xia", which you can see from the screenshot below that it would appear on the blank space bar.
If I type on the blank space bar, the word would appear in the edit box as below:
And then I had to remove the unwanted Chinese character to get what I initially want:
What I am saying is, at one point, I was able to stumble on a gesture or something that would pop out a window with all the Chinese characters associated with the pronunciation "sheng", so I can choose it directly. BUT, I can't trigger that screen anymore. If you happen to find the key combination or gesture and like to share it here, that would be much appreciated!

Just want to report that I found the solution!
After input the PinYin, if you can't find the characters you are looking for, just swipe on the first row of the keyboard to the right, the pop up menu will appear.
