    No dedicated emoji key helped about 75% better. But I've been training my thumb to slide in towards the space bar which is a pain in the butt to have to think that hard while typing. :) I've never had to do that with any other keyboard.... Hopefully we can find a easy fix because really even with that nothing else works as well for me as swift.key.

    Going to throw this one in there, does anyone sometimes catch the period when touching the M? Once it's hit there no way of autocorrecting it so always shows as a full stop.

    Just give it up already. Go outside, and go for a walk without your phone. Stop staring at screens. We're already well on our way to being totally replaced by them.

    So far, I've seen one video example in portrait. 

    It seems there are people having this issue in land scape and portrait.

    In order to dive deeper into this, I need very specific details. 

    • Device make/model 
    • OS Version
    • Does it happen in portrait/landscape or both?
    • Is the emoji key active
    • If people can provide video of this happening, this is also super helpful

    If you don't want to keep commenting via this forum, feel free to also submit a ticket.

    Honestly I don't mess it up so much anymore but my thumb gets tired because it's been trained to stretch to the left more than it normally would.... That's really the only thing that "fixed" the issue Thumb training! 😀 It's now a thing.

    But really never had the issue on any other keyboard and gboard works no worries but the key press sound is annoying so SK it is for now. Cheers!

    instead of asking for videos of this occurring why dont you just give the option to hide the period key it seems like it would be far less work for everyone, no one is pulling your leg here there's 4 pages of people with complaints of this happening.

    Indeed. The title itself is self explanatory. Why asking for videos for a thing that it's clearly a usability issue.

    Or just move it a little to the right. I use the (.) key so I don't necessarily want to hide it but moving it a bit can't be that hard...? Make the (enter/return) key a little smaller? How often does it get used? Not as much as the (.) key I would assume.

    Ps. If you are not an automatic bot, could you please give us the option to hide period key and enlarge soacebar?

    • Does it happen in portrait/landscape or both? Portrait, never texted on Landscape so I can't tell if it happens too
    • Is the emoji key active - it was, it it used to happen pretty much every other word, with the emoki Key disable it happen much less, but still too often to ignore. 
    • If people can provide video of this happening, this is also super helpful - ill try to get  a video on it soon

    If people can provide video of this happening, this is also super helpful - A video to show something it takes a second to test? For the love, this has been reported numerous times over 2 years and I ended up switching to th3 Samsung keyboard since SwiftKey sucks in solving this long standing issue. Even suggestings mentioned about the same space key having the ability to add the period if long pressed or similar ideas are better than this current situation. Btw 2 years is simply ignoring this.

    I had the issue for months, thinking this was only me.

    Looking for a new keyboard app right now if no solution is available.

    I've never mastered the thumb thing for several reasons so stuck with using an index finger. It's really easy to drift off to the left and make lots of mistakes. Larger keyboards obscure too much screen. I've just had to adapt!!

    Are you serious? As well as SwiftKey making a keyboard, they are also very adapt at harvesting and analysing data. Are you telling me the analytics team cannot see the number of incorrect sentences caused by a period and what device and configuration? Clearly this is a UX issue and as many people have reported it, would be nice for it to be treated seriously

    What would be the real solution here is the following: by default or by some learning the period button should work as part of the space button and the actual period should be available by longpress and/or by double hitting the space bar. But based on the responsiveness and the willingness to help based on customer feedback (like the other issue, which is also a period included problem: auto space after a f.ck.ng period) by SwiftKey, I will also uninstall and change to an other keyboard which is really sad because I'm using it since I'm on droid.

    Why no one from SwiftKey dev team takes this issue seriously? Yesterday I was about to smash my phone by the number os times I pressed period key wrongly

    I gave up on this keyboard months ago once I realised they don't care about it. It's so annoying because their predictive emojis are the best. I have moved to gboard because full stops every second word was more annoying that not having the brilliant predictive emojis.

    working well for me so far.   No predictive emoji that I can find, but thats still better than constantly deleting full stops.

     

    Oh look..not a single mistake in the whole post!!

     

    "Swiftkey is always right there alongside Gboard, but for a while now, it hasn't been able to out do it and retake its throne. SwiftKey has been a major player in Android keyboards for years; it used to be the pinnacle of predictions and swipe, but both have fallen just a little behind Gboard. "

    I'll be honest I'm hitting it more now than ever before and I don't know why (although since a phone change from S7 to S9). It's complete and utter madness and been happening for so long now that it's becoming the norm, I don't want it to be the norm. May have to try Gboard again...

    It's sad, they are not going to take it seriously untim they see their users numbers dropping, they thinks this is an issue that only affect a few people and it's not worth the time investigating (maybe they are right), I'm doing my part and dropping SwiftKey and trying gboard as suguessted.

    I moved to google keyboard and it's working like a charm. I just miss emoji prediction, cause in google works a little bit different, but everything else working as expected. It was a pleasure Swiftkey, time to say goodbye eheh :-)
