    I find that it places a period when I do not want it. Wonder if I have it setup wrong...

    I just submitted a but report related to quick period.

    It seems that if you also have "Show prediction after Flow" enabled, quick period doesn't always work. "Show prediction after Flow" adds a space after you enter a word using flow, and if you press space again I would expect to get a "quick period" but it doesn't happen.

    I sent an email to support explaining that this is the behavior that is occurring, but not what I, as a user, would expect.

    I find the quick period works correctly if I type the word preceeding it correctly, but if I choose a suggested word, or it auto-corrects the last word, it doesn't work.

    Swiftkey responded to the email that I sent. Here's the relevant part:

    "We've made some intricate tweaks based on the back of a lot of research that controls period behavior. The change is simply that quick period is now time based. So you'll need to hit the space bar twice in quick succession to get a period."

    (Emphasis added by me)

    I tested this, and it does seem to work if you do it quick enough and always double-tap space bar (even if there's already a space there,) but it doesn't seem intuitive, and I told them that.

    They also said the following:

    "I understand that this current update may not be your preferred full-stop functionality.  At the time we don't have any plans to alter it further, however, I would be more than happy to submit a feature request for consideration in a future version if you would like for me to do so?"

    To which I basically said yes, it would be nice to return it to the old behavior because that behavior makes more sense to most users. Hopefully they'll listen if enough of us complain about this change.

    Good work Randy. I agree the new functionality is not intuitive and is frustrating when you have to think to quickly tap the space bar after a flow. It's less than a second to complete the flow and hit space bar.
