IPA symbols14 Stimmen 5 Kommentare
I wish I have the opportunity to use the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and the symbols that indicate the "quantity" in Latin words (long and short), on all the vowels. I'm a student of linguistics and I think it could help a lot of people.

Turning off Transliteration14 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
Please provide an option to turn off transliteration in Hindi because we don't always need it. Also transliteration causes huge delay when you type using swipe. When I turn off Hindi and then use swipe to type then there is no delay.

I have about 40 clipboard items pinned on one android device. Is there an easy way to get these on my other android devices so that I don't have to manually enter them all over again? Thanks.
Don't add a space after a dot/period13 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
Please deactivate automatic spacing after typing a dot, or add an option to NOT insert a space (" ") after typing a dot/period ("."). It is very annoying, as the dot is a common character in any text field or text area (think input fields and text editors, not just web addresses, code editors and alike).
Although this issue has been reported several times, there's still no reaction from SwiftKey/Microsoft for SEVERAL YEARS. Maybe the issue is not tracked anymore as it is associated with a "permanently deleted user".
Dictionary won't sync13 Stimmen 37 Kommentare
I just switched from the Galaxy S10+ to the Note 10+ and my dictionary won't sync. I see all my words are in the cloud when I look at my account data. When I force a sync it says last synced a minute ago. This is the first time this has happened when I've switched phones. I've cleared the cache, forced sync, uninstalled, reinstalled, force sync and nothing has worked. Is this a bug or am I running into some issues?
My saved words do not want to download after reinstalling the application.13 Stimmen 22 Kommentare
Hi, I had to reinstall the SwiftKey application again on my phone. Before that I made a synchronization of my saved words. After logging in to the SwiftKey account via the website, all my saved words are still on the server. The problem is that the same account is logged in to the application on an Android phone, but I can't to download my saved words back to my phone. I'm mad at it because my dictionary has several thousand words that I need to re-enter now. Any idea how to solve it?

Unable to sync learned words between Android devices12 Stimmen 16 Kommentare
Every time I re-install swiftkey on same device or install to a new android device my predicted words dissapeared! Even Backup/restore was ON on previous device and on the new device also, triggered sync many times on both devices!
This happened the second time for me between different devices, word backup never worked. What the cloud backup is for then? What is the purpose?
Before you say I turned off backup, my data exists in the cloud at data.swiftkey.com, but does not synced to any of new devices:
Personal Dictionary Not Working12 Stimmen 10 Kommentare
I've been using SwiftKey for several years with no issues at all, and have obviously built up quite a large personal dictionary. After factory resetting my Galaxy S8+ on Android 9.0, and re-installing SwiftKey, predictions from my personal dictionary so not come up anymore. I have tried all the steps on the troubleshooting guides on this website and have tried all the steps from other similar posts with no success. Are there any other steps I can try? This app has been so essential to me for many many years now and I can't even imagine losing all of the data that has been built up throughout the years.
[Feature Request] Option to change font color and style12 Stimmen 9 Kommentare
I love that SwiftKey Beta finally have released Photo Themes, and given users a possibility to design your own custom theme!!!
BUT it needs the possibility to deside the COLOR OF THE FONT. Without it it's not very usefull. It would also be good if you add a way to determend how transparent the photo theme is.
Turn off auto - cursor move Beantwortet12 Stimmen 13 Kommentare
The feature that I find the most annoying, and would like the option to turn off, is the auto move of the cursor to the end of the word. When I want to insert/correct a character, I press on the location within the word, and the cursor moves to the end of the word! I have all the arrow keys displayed at the bottom of the keyboard, so pressing on the location & adjusting with the arrow keys is super fast. Except the cursor jumps to the end of the word! I think this feature was added a couple of years ago. It still gets in the way. I haven't found a fast workaround, so an option to turn it off would be much appreciated.

More than 3 predictive suggestions? Beantwortet12 Stimmen 21 Kommentare
How can I get more predictive suggestions than the default 3? In the Czech language quite a lot of words are longer and differ in one or two letters at the end (such as překrásný, překrásná, překrásní, překrásně, překrásné, překrásno, překrásnou,...). The prediction then is useless if I anyway need to type the whole word. In the old times my Nokia was able to expand for me the whole list of other similar words to choose from.

Disabling Multiple Languages in Autocorrect11 Stimmen 5 Kommentare
I use SwiftKey (the paid version) with English and my native language, Malayalam. My language settings are as in the screenshot below.
My phone is primarily for work use, so most of my keypad usage is to type out professional emails, Slack messages, Asana updates etc. and the only acceptable language for such communications is English. I use Malayalam occasionally on certain WhatsApp groups; where I know all members are capable of reading and understanding the language. In earlier versions of SwiftKey switching between these was quick and easy via the spacebar, and the product worked very well for my requirements.
But of late, I see that SwiftKey is predicting words in Malayalam when I'm typing in English and worse still, these words are offered as the middle prediction:
This is incredibly annoying; and I have searched all over the place - but it seems like there is no way to disable this behaviour. At the moment I have removed Malayalam from SwiftKey completely because this "feature" is interfering in my work. My questions:
1. Is it true that I cannot disable this feature?
2. Is there a way I can downgrade to a version of SwiftKey that did not have this feature?
3. Is there any plans for adding a configuration option to disable this feature? If yes when will that come out?
Swiftkey, please stop ignoring your community: Prediction is horrible. Add dictionary separation w/mult languages, please!11 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
First, I noticed prediction lags. A lot. Especially if you type fast.
Now, please help me with this: 1. I don't use pinyin (Chinese input). I don't even have it enabled as pinyin. I use a different typing system (zhuyin system) and yet Swiftkey still predicts pinyin. But why? Why am I forced into this option? This leads to the next problem: Swiftkey likes to predict English words like "uber" into "uber" with an umlaut. This is equally annoying because the English word is not the same as the German word.
2. There's no way to tell where some special letters or modifiers are. For example, the German "ß?" Go ahead and guess where it's found without checking EVERY SINGLE KEY on the keyboard. And the Russian keyboard? I don't even want to start.
For a keyboard that is supposed to be convenient, it, somehow, manages to force you into multilingualism. What if I don't want to, though? I want to type in one language at a time for the sake of accuracy. This prediction really... kills.
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.

Android Sync Issue (Not Working) - Samsung Galaxy10 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
So, I've had SwiftKey for many, many years and been through a huge number of phones, but never had this issue.
I have a few devices - one of them being an iPhone, the other being a Samsung.
I recently purchased a new Samsung (S9), and it seems although it shows the sync as being connected, it doesn't 'remember' any of the many words I have on there. It's an issue which I've never had.
I've deleted, reinstalled, clicked sync on both sides, ensured it's logged in etc. No luck.
I have a SwiftKey account for my synchronising. In the most recent update of iOS SwiftKey, it no longer seems to be an option, to log-in with a SwiftKey account, but only with Facebook, Microsoft, Google or Apple. Could this be it?
Any idea what it could be?
