Please stop suggesting words from language B when I'm typing in language A Beantwortet11 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
this seriously annoys me to no end sometimes. I use German and English language and it happens so many times that whenever I press space for auto correct/complete it just fill in a word from the other language which makes no sense and it doesn't even exist in that way in the language I currently use.
Themes Beantwortet2 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
I've been a SwiftKey user since the very start of the app. I have used it in Android and iOS. One thing is missing: Why not let the user create their own theme? At least the ability to choose colors and fonts.
This would push your keyboard over the top!
Gesture mode swipe down to hide broken Beantwortet0 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
Since (unknown update), the gesture mode swipe down to hide does not work in 99% of the tries. The keyboard tries to do anything, but hiding, types the first key the finger touches the moment it hits the display, without even starting a gesture recognition, or does whatever.
Please fix this, it's really annoying, because the damn keyboard has no close/hide button. There are thousand of forms which does not trigger a close button, for example when you want to write a rating on the Play Store, and the damn SwiftKey is in the foreground, over the input test field.
Asked a friend to try, and for him it's broken too.

Swiftkey paste from clipboard in numeric field Beantwortet0 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I noticed a very annoying thing in Swiftkey keyboard Android. I cannot use clipboard in a field that accepts only digits. The keyboard hides the "+" button so I can't use the clipboard on it.
However, when using other keyboards (e.g. Chrooma), I can paste on the same field from the clipboard.
Anyone came across the same issue? please help, this been annoying me for a long time.
Spazio automatico indesiderato Beantwortet1 Stimme 7 Kommentare
Lo spazio automatico dopo la correzione e dopo la punteggiatura è utike e comodo.
Tuttavia, ogni volta che scrivo "tu?" mi si inserisce automaticamente uno spazio fra il "tu" e il punto interrogativo, senza alcuna ragione.
Tra l'altro, cancellando sia spazio che punto interrogativo, e provando a smettere il punto di domanda, lo spazio ricompare all'infinito.
L'unico modo per toglierlo è tornare indietro e cancellare solo lo spazio.
C'è un modo per evitare che ciò accada?
Voice to Text typing auto correct gone. Beantwortet0 Stimmen 7 KommentareA few weeks ago, maybe a month, the voice to text feature for auto dictation changed. It used to have an autocorrect feature just like the SwiftKey one and it would also allow me to select sentences and predict what I meant to say by giving me different selections of the sentence when I tapped the underlined word. It was a wonderful feature. The voice command box was also white, which goes with the theme of my keyboard. Now it is nothing but a black box and when I try to go into the settings to turn this back on it doesn't do it anymore. I really miss the autocorrect features on The Voice to text. It was fantastic. How do I get it back?

Add ability to pin frequently used emojis Beantwortet0 Stimmen 7 KommentareI have an emoji I use to indicate amazement "😲" that I can't find since I don't know the keywords used for it. I'd like to pin it since I probably don't use more than 10 different emojis. It would be a minimal addition to the interface and speed up usage.

Change case sensitive of already typed text Beantwortet3 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I've just changed from Windows Phone to Android and installed the Swiftkey keyboard.
On Windows Phone, if I wanted to switch a text or a whole message to upper or lower cases, I just selected all the text or the specific word and pressed the up arrow (that handles upper or lower) and it was converted. I checked that on Android I can convert the word pressing space after it. Can you please add this funcionality to it? It's a better and fast way to do it...
Learning from apps Beantwortet0 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
Among the apps Swift Key connects with are only my social media & Gmail account. But it doesn't appear to be connected to my email app or any of the Ms products I use like Word. As a result SK doesn't appear to be learning much or able to personalize via its auto correct features.
Is there any way to expand the number of apps it learns from?
Custom Keyboard Layout Beantwortet3 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I switched over to SwiftKey since I could see my text boxes but I'm not use to the current layout of the keyboard. I prefer to have my symbols on the left and my numbers visible without tapping on their own tab. And I like to have my emoji tab right next to my space bar on the left and not have to hold down on enter/send to get them. And way to change that sorta thing on here?
Gesture distance / sensitivity setting? Beantwortet0 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
Just like you are able to set the sensitivity of clicking buttons in milli seconds, it used to also be possible to configure the distance / sensitivity of the backspace gesture.
I can't find that configuration anymore, was it removed?

How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Beantwortet4 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance
Delete Options [suggestion] Beantwortet4 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I've recently switched to Swiftkey because I'm having some problems with Gboard. The one major thing I miss from that, however, is its wonderfully simple and intuitive 'gesture delete' function. You should really, REALLY check it out to see why it's so much better than just pressing and holding the del key and hoping you can release it in time to avoid deleting more than you wanted to. This is particularly important on a system like Android that doesn't offer any ctrl-z type undo options. All you do is swipe left off the del key until the text you want to delete is highlighted, then release to perform the delete. If you swipe too far you just have to slide back towards the del key a bit first. Simple!
I also find it mightily frustrating that the last word entered by flow typing can't be deleted with a single tap on the del key. That's how every other 'swipe' type keyboard app I've tried works and it seems pretty obvious to me it's how it should be. I realize this has been asked before and rejected, but I'd urge you to reconsider and at least make it an option.
Text underlined in Swiftkey Beta? Beantwortet2 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
Hello - Within the last couple of updates of the Swiftkey Beta app, underlined text has begun appearing in the predictions bar at times while I'm typing. I just switched back to the Swiftkey app and this underline does not appear ever so it doesn't appear to be a system-wide phone issue. What is this underline? I find this incredibly annoying, especially because there doesn't appear to be any discernible use for it. I just typed 'Is' and it was underlined. If this is going to be added to the regular app going forward, could we also get an option to turn it off? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

[FR] Don't remove preceding space when inserting an underscore (_) Beantwortet8 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
Is it possible to have SwiftKey *not* remove the preceding space when an underscore is being inserted?
This issue (along with a few others) was raised as far as December 2014. Unfortunately, it hasn't received attention from the developers.
It's rather frustrating having to go back through typed text to correct things from
"It_should_ be fixed immediately" to "it _should_ be fixed immediately".
Ordinarily it wouldn't be a problem if you could simply backspace and correct it. However, fixing this 'typo' requires a careful placement of the caret (which isn't at all easy) then inserting a space and then moving to the end of the line to continue with the text.
This slows text input especially when writing formatted text on WhatsApp and Telegram, both of which use the underscore for formatting.
