I can attach GIFs in the regular version of SwiftKey, but the beta version just puts a link to the GIFs. Will the beta version be updated to be just like the regular version?

Keyboard too small when in compact mode3 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
Alright I'm on a galaxy S8+ with the latest version of N and the latest Beta version as of today 126.96.36.199.
I wanted one handed operation so I switched my keyboard to that. The keyboard became significantly smaller, so I increased the size to the biggest, which made it as high as the full size / medium keyboard. I am pretty sure this is a bug because when I hold the punctuation key to insert an exclamation mark! It shows me the popup in very big text. It seems like the preview matches the correct size and height of the full size kb. I have a photo, but I'm not sure how to include it here...which would suggest you guys should enable that in your editor 😁
Thanks for the help
Turn off auto - cursor move Beantwortet9 Stimmen 12 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.
Why is a word I delete repeatedly predicted? Beantwortet4 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
When I type "god" the primary prediction is "God" but 99% of the time I am not evoking the Christian god, I am not using the word as a proper noun. I've deleted this prediction dozens and dozens of times but it's always the primary prediction,and though it does show "god" on the left prediction it means I have to press it to get it to say what I want when I should just be able to hit space and move on. Is there a fix for this?
English/Bengali layout issue4 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
SwiftKey has recently introduced an en/bn layout where one can type in english keyboard to write both English and Bengali. It's quite good.
In Bengali, we use 'dari' (।) in place of a period. But that layout has no '।' symbol for easy access. So, whenever I finish writing a sentence in Bengali, I have to switch to the general বাংলা (Bengali) layout, add '।', and then again switch back to en/bn layout. This is really convoluted. My suggestion is to add '।' as a secondary option in the ',' key on the left of space bar.
In any case, please do something about it.
I'm using SwiftKey Beta.

Auto correct breaking up words4 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
Auto correct breaks up words requiring additional editing. Can you fix this, really annoying!
To replicate, switch off auto correct on space bar, then type edot. Then touch the word. This will place cursor in the middle of the word. Then select one of the suggestions from the top of the keyboard (Eg edit or editor) . That will put a suggested word followed by ot (eg edit ot). So the letters on the right from the cursor are kept unchanged and have to be deleted!? This is almost never what the user wants.
[Feature Request] Add windows 10 support10 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
I like and use Your keyboard primarily for the Android but also for the Apple. L
On the other hand I purchased on IBM Surface tablet and was very discouraged to find they support almost no usable on screen keyboards.
I can give you the list of features of your keyboard that they don't support, and of course some features that I'd like you to add.
But the major thing I would like to do is ask why you, as a subsidiary of Microsoft, can not convince them to allow you to have an alternate keyboard for their Windows 10 Surface tablets.
Note: I would be perfectly willing to pay for a 'Pro' version if that's what takes to get it your software moved over to their package
Is there a way to have a .com button? Beantwortet3 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
Hi there - I miss having the smart and handy .com key that I believe comes with stock Android. Is there a way to add it to the SwiftKey layout? It's pretty annoying that everytime I want to type .com I get a space and capitalized C after the period. A one-touch .com key would be fantastic!
Two simple design flaws which want me to replace SwiftKey Beantwortet3 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
I am using SwitfKey for a long time, but desperatly want to switch to mostly any other keyboard software, because since years, there are two catastrophic design flaws in the app, which could be solved in minutes of programming time:
1) The optional numeric bar just shows the numbers 1 to 0, and has no second layout... why! Every keyboard on this planet has easy access to ! for example on number key 1, but not SwiftKey
2) For Germany layout, it is catastrophic to access most important keys like ö ä ü ß in SwiftKey. For example: if you hold key u, the default selection is "<" instead of "ü" ... WHY!!! This is the most annoying thing for German customers.
Please change default selection for uoa to üöä.
Give easy and fast access to !?ß. The access through . is a mess and breaks usage flaw on normal keyboards.
Give option to manipulate the key layout and change keys you want to have.

Can't Restore my Data, and I'm logged in1 Stimme 11 Kommentare
It's almost 2 months now.. I had to reset my phone, and now all my prescriptions and data are not syncing.
I checked my account data on the website, and it still there. I tried logging out of my account on the app, I tried deleting it and reinstalling, I've tried many things.
I've noticed that is no one is answering nor replying to everyone who is facing this problem.. I really really hope this is not permanent.. I've been using this keyboard since 2012! Imagine losing all that!

Bug on instagram stickers0 Stimmen 11 Kommentare
I can't use the "123" button when I typing on instagram stickers. The keyboard go in crash when I tap on the "123" button.

Yes there is a solution and is tap on the letter and insert the special character, but why you never fix it?
Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) Beantwortet3 Stimmen 11 Kommentare
I'd hoped this issue would have been fixed by now but it appears that it's not a very popular problem, and so I've decided to take it upon myself to provide the correct information to get it looked at. I have found a few other forum posts with the exact same issue, so I hope this helps you all too.
Here is the required information;
- Huawei P20 Pro - EE network, UK
- Android 8.1.0: Huawei's EMUI build, version CLT-L09 220.127.116.11(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 18.104.22.168
- Steps to reproduce:
- When typing in the standard layout QWERTY keboard, if pressing the "123" key in the very bottom-left of the keyboard, immediately and swiftly followed by punctuation such as a question mark (on the symbol/number layout that appears), the keyboard acts as though the "enter" key in the very bottom-right of the symbol keyboard is pressed before the punctuation you selected, despite not pressing it at all. This means that a new line begins before your punctuation, and it shouldn't. For example, if attempting to quickly type the word "What?" on the keyboard, you will get this instead:
- I have added a link below to a screen-recording of the issue. In the video, you will see the "?" and the "enter" keys both light up as though both are being pressed, however only the "?" is actually being pressed. What you should see is "What?", there should not be a new line added before the "?". This happens with other punctuation also, but as the "?" is the most frequently used, I thought I'd go with that for the video.
- Link: https://vimeo.com/312434866
Importantly: This error does NOT happen if you restore the Swiftkey application to its original version via the Google Playstore. The issue only begins when updating the application, and so the bug must have inadvertently been included recently. I can't remember when the issue started, but it has been a few months and a handful of updates, and the issue still remains.
I hope this information is sufficient to locate and fix this bug, it's a real nut-ache for me as it happens 95% of the time I use punctuation after a word.

I only downloaded SwiftKey because GBoard won't read my personal dictionary every time my phone restarts so I have to delete data and reset all my preferences every time I buy phone turns on.

Jumpy cursor1 Stimme 11 Kommentare
Hi.. Just got a new note 8. Downloaded the latest swiftkey version. Unfortunately, the cursor is VERY jumpy while typing and the keyboard seems like it's hyper sensitive compared to using it on my old note 5. Any progress with these issues?any way to tone down the sensitivity? I'm a big fan of SwiftKey, but it's nearly un-usable because of the jumpy cursor and sensitivity :(
