comment Zhuyin IME and tone 0/5 syllables
I believe most IMEs work like this, whether using pinyin or zhuyin. This is also how you would look up a word in the dictionary based on the pinyin or zhuyin of individual characters.

下[一]个 means next one (down the list). 上[一]个 means previous one (up the list). 一 or 一个 does not contain any meaning of next or previous.
