Did you try "zhi3"? Don't know ms pinyin though.

I am using Windows 10 with Microsoft Pinyin.  To output 止, I type "zhi," then use my mouse or type the corresponding number to select 止.  If 止 does not appear among the choices, I click the ">" that will appear to the right of the last character (For me, it was 志.), and a new set of possibilities (all pronounced "zhi") will appear. You can keep doing this until 止 appears, and then click on it or type its number.  Note that the ordering of the candidate characters seems to change based on your previous selections.  At least mine did.

Bingo!

 

I typed zhi and several other combinations, but none of the 8 options that appeared were a match. With MS Pinyin on Windows 10, the '>' arrow to scroll for additional options doesn't appear until you move the mouse over the right-most option. 

 

Thanks.
