    Was just annoyed to hell and back trying to type a custom domain and then login to wifi and 2 different services by this stubborn feature that you're refusing to make optional (judging by what I read in this thread).

    I'm uninstalling Swiftkey, some people mentioned Gboard and Swyft allow this simple option so I'm moving to those. It literally takes 5 minutes to add a checkbox option to your app's autocorrect settings panel to allow this to be turned off, you're developers why are you against flexibility to accommodate more advanced users? do you even use your own keyboard?

    You want an example? turn off auto-correct and try typing this in swiftkey's settings: "support.swiftkey.com"

    This is what you get: "support. swiftkey. com"

    can't believe that after last update it's adding space after ":" as well. I'm gonna kill myself. Cannot use emojis anymore!

    You still haven't sorted this out? This is getting ridiculous. I'm considering changing.

    After using Gboard for last half a year I decided to switch back to SwiftKey to see if they fixed this mess. Nope, still broken. As a developer, I can confirm that it's really easy to add an option to NOT do some action. But no, it's like if they mock us in purpose. Will have to uninstall and forget.
    P. S. : note the double spaces and extra spaces all around my message. You want me to waste my life deleting hundreds of them, every day? I don't think so.

    Holy crap I thought I was going insane with the space after : ! It was so sudden I had no idea what was going on.

    Doubt there's ever going to be a fix to the spacing.

    They just released another update... without the option to turn off autospace. I made sure to leave a negative review in the Google Play store. Will have to see if I can do it in the Apple iOS store as well... and anywhere else that might eventually get SwiftKey's marketing folks' attention.

    I would love to find a keyboard exactly like SwiftKey but with the ability to disable automatic space insertion.

    Manual mode needed badly! Automatically adding spaces is an English specific feature. Many languages have complex and long compound words and suffixes which are difficult to type with automatic space insertion.

    I can't believe it's been over a year of these complaints & still nothing has been done. Going  in search  of another app!

    I just read the comment of M Kanzler mentioning that he made sure to put negative feedback in google play store. I can't believe I forgot to do that. Maybe they listen to ratings if they don't listen feedback on their own forum. Anyway, just thougt to remind all of you about the possibility to express your feelings in google play store. No pressure ;)

    I just wanted to leave a note reinforcing this issue. I'm Portuguese and we have a lot of words hyphenated, such as "lembras-te". Everytime I write "lembras" and put a "-", it goes like this "lembras - te".

    Apart from that I'm very happy with SwiftKey, but if the problem persists and an update isn't predicted anytime soon, I think I'll back to what I used on my previous phone.

    Do you have any predictions to fix this?

    For real? It is Feb 2018 and this is not fixed yet. I mean space key contains the biggest place on the keyboard so when I need it, it is really not a big issue to hit it. Please TURN IT OFF! I am going to Gboard now. How long does it take to add this option? A year? Barely.

    It's never been an option to turn off the autospace before - I hope you're right.

    Where did you find the option to turn it off.

    I'll make sure I have the latest (non-beta) update, and check the menus again.

    I am still having the issue and I am on the latest version.

    Something to note for those saying it hasn't been fixed after 6 months or a year, there are older requests for this exact issue with many response that are at least 3-4 years old now. This seems like one of the most complained about items and they've never resolved it. At one point I know the Apple version of Swiftkey did resolve these, but that never made its way over to Android.

    To test for the issue, it's as simple as opening the google search bar widget on Android and typing swiftkey.com in it. It will be switftkey. Com. Or choose something like your email address as a prediction word and bam... enjoy the added space. VERY frustrating.

    Sadly if it wasn't for the adjustable timing on the "hold key down" option to allow for very quick special characters/#s, I would have stopped using Swiftkey very long ago specifically due to this space after special characters/predictions issue.

    I have the same problem. Why has this issue not been fixed yet? I see that people have been complaining for more than a year... How hard is it to just add a "turn off" button for this feature?

    I think I'll change to another keyboard, does anyone happen to know a good keyboard that wouldn't have this problem (aside from GBoard which I don't really like)?

    EDIT: I found a pretty nice keyboard which seems to work for me: chrooma keyboard

    It's far more natural to add a space when we want it than to delete a space when it's unwanted. Sadly the latter case is much more prevalent. 

    @Ryan P To quote you "Also, people have different typing styles, habits and expectations. We do our best to be "smart" about what the keyboard does. We understand auto spaces can be tricky. We are always working on improving this." Yes people have different typing styles, that's why a toggle to turn on/off autospace is the simplest and best solution. There's no need to be "smart" about this or "working on improving this". No matter how smart or how much you work on it, one setting that's enforced on everyone will never be a better solution than letting people choose what options they want.

    I will no longer be using your app until you fix this issue. It's extremely annoying when browsing the web and trying to type in a web address.

    Auto spaces are evil.  This was the first thing I noticed when using this keyboard.  

    An option to turn this off would be trivial to implement. Since you refuse, I will be uninstalling and leaving a negative review.

    I've got to post about this again, since they've removed the original request to remove this "feature". Why are you so stubborn, Swiftkey developers? Simply adding this option would make so many people happy.

    I bought p20pro which has swiftkey inlcuded so I'm currently using it. And got annoyed with the space it makes after punctuation. How can you predict all people will like space after DOT. I understand COMMA will have space after. But DOT is used for email addresses. It's annoying. Even DASH creates space after.
