I have a moto z play 2.
I don't really think that matters for this though.
I am using message+, however it is HIGHLY ANNOYING that I cannot find how to turn of the "smart icons" or smart text. Whatever it's called when the word is highlighted and it suggest an icon. I am not the best at keying on a phone, and more often than not it highlights a word I want to remove or edit, or prohibits me from accurately positioning where I want my cursor.
It appears I am on version 6.7.7.
HOW DO I TURN THIS FEATURE OFF!
I saw another post about a smart icon setting checkbox, which does not exist on my version. That was a post from 2015 so probably the config setting was moved or removed.

I can definitely understand your frustrations with not being able to customize certain features on your Verizon Messages (Message+) application on your wireless device. I would love to assist you with making this change on your device.
If you’re referring to the “Smart Emojis” feature within the Message+ app, you can disable this feature by selecting the “Menu” key in the upper left corner of the Message+ app (3 horizontal lines), then Settings, then Conversations. Lastly, you can disable the “Enable Smart Emojis” switch. Let me know how that works out for you.
