I can't find any references to Undo keyboard shortcut. For example, to undo Delete or any other command. Am I looking in the wrong place or it doesn't exist at all?

Quick access to plain text emoticons4 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
don't know if this has already been asked, cannot find it in the forum search. The thing is I'm an old guy, I've started chatting when we still had the BBSs and Internet was almost unknown. Because of that I hate all those damn emojis, all that bitmap wasting just to show stupid faces, and silly objects, and flags and who knows what other weird stuff. So, is there a way to quick access the text-only emoticons, ie, those you can type by just using brackets, two colon and the like :-) :-/ :-(
Previous versions, I could keep the Enter key pressed and at least a top row with a clock icon appeared, and from there I could see my last typed emoticons. Now, text emoticons are not under the clock anymore and the text emoticons tab :-) is just the last one, and it's very impractical to access it this way. Can the order of those tabs be changed? Could you bring the text emoticons back to the history tab?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Period Key4 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
Probably 85% of the mistakes I have to correct are the result of hitting the period key instead of the space bar. Can we have an option to move it, or make it a hard-press or long-press, or.....something. It's my only significant problem with an otherwise outstanding keyboard. Thanks much.
[Feature Request] Make Keyboard Theme and the Navigation Bar match colors4 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
The navigation bar on Android devices almost always shows a light or white color navigation bar instead of the same color as the app.
Gboard is implementing this feature and I can't believe SwiftKey doesn't already have it.
If it is dark and I start to type, my entire screen is dark themed but the navigation bar will be a blinding white color.
There are many apps that change this setting to match the rest of the app. Please do it for the SwiftKey keyboard.
I have a Galaxy Note 8 and the only way to have a dark keyboard color is to manually change it for SwiftKey using.a third party app. I would rather it work natively.
Customize Long-press Symbols4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
It would be very nice if there were a way to adjust what symbol(s) are in the long-press menu of each key, as well as which one of those is the default. For instance:
* I use tilde (~) a lot, to indicate a sentence spoken with a joking tone. I'd gladly give up, say, double-quote on 'C' to get quicker access to it. (Yes, I know that if you turn on the dedicated number row, 'E' gets tilde as its long-press instead of 3, but that costs valuable screen real-estate.)
* The number keys, when you have the dedicated number row on, don't have any long-press symbols assigned at all.
* As I Canadian, I use the English (UK) locale, since there isn't a dedicated Canadian English locale and we mostly use the British spellings for words. However, this means SwiftKey insists on making the default long-press symbol on 'X' the pound symbol; since our currency is the Canadian dollar, I'd much rather have it default to the dollar sign.
* As an English-speaker living in Québec, I occasionally need to type a French word or place name which contains an accented character. However the only accents which are used with any frequency are the acute, grave, and circumflex on a vowel or cedilla on 'C'; the other fifty-or-so accented characters available when the 'Show all accented characters' option is on are or little use to me.
German layout - long press4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I just started to use Swiftkey, and I love it, but the fact how the letters ß, ä, ö, and ü are handled when typing in German are a complete deal-breaker for me. It's such a simple thing, and I honestly don't understand why it's not implemented in a smart way.
In order to type an 'ä', you have to long press the letter 'a', then the '@' appears beneath your finger, and you have to move to the letter 'ä'. In German, the letter 'ä' is just a normal character, and it is used a lot more often than the letter '@', so it should be the other way round. After the long press, the 'ä' should automatically appear beneath your finger, so you just have to long press it, without the extra move.
The same thing applies to ß (after long pressing the 's', the ß should be standard, instead of the '#'), for o (where the 9 is standard instead of ö), and the 'ü' as well.
Gboard, and any other keyboard (to my knowledge) implement it in that way. So you just have to long press the u, in order to get a ü, and so on. It's fine if you have to move your finger for characters that you don't need that often, but ä, ü, ö and ß should be the first choice when long pressing.
Smarter capitalization of "I"4 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
This has been asked for about a year ago, but I'll try again... I've enabled two languages in the SwiftKey (beta) app. My native tongue and English. Switching between the two is seamless, which I enjoy, but the app keeps capitalizing my I's in my mother tongue as well (where "i" is a standalone word that shouldn't be capitalized mid-sentence). It would be great if the app could for example look at the word before "i" and then suggest capitalizing only if the word is English.
For now I have to manually correct it, which takes a lot of time in the long run.
Voice input4 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
They only reason why I don't like swift key compared to gboard is due to lack of quick access to voice input. Can you please bring voice input key top right as it's currently placed in the gboard. To be honest Windows phone keyboard was so much better.
Keyboard covers input field - impossible to write, predictions not working4 Stimmen 4 Kommentare
I'm having a big issue with SwiftKey on my HTC ONE M7 on Android 5.
The keyboard covers the input field in almost any messenger (WA, GG, TG,...) and makes it impossible to write.
The predictions are also not click-able. When I tap on one of the predictions, the keyboard disappears, as if I would tap on the Messengers window.
I have some Screenshots showing the bug but this forum doesn't seem to have an option to attach images. How can I post an image?
With this serious bug, SwiftKey is totally useless for me.
I can't see the text I'm writing.
I can't tap on the predictions.
The built-in HTC Sense Keyboard works just fine without this issue, so it has to be SwiftKey that's causing the bug.
Please resolve this issue as soon as possible. I can't live without SwiftKey!
Manual language swap4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Hi, is it possible to change languages manually? When I have two or more languages together (i have Czech, English and French) and use flow, the resulting words of the flow gesture tend to be wrong often (a lot). Even if i use only Czech and English which is necessary in my every day life it is not working well. I would appreciate manual language switching as was possible in the past. Also separate personal dictionaries would be implied.(added words)
Can't delete words from dictionary4 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
The whole long press and "do not predict again" thing doesn't work at all. There are numerous words I have tried to remove, but they come back immediately. For example, I'm trying to remove God with a capital G so it won't capitalize the G every time I type god. I type god and long press to remove it, then I immediately type god and boom, it auto capitalizes to God. What is the point of having "do not predict again" if it doesn't do anything! How can I ACTUALLY remove a word from my autocorrect!
[FEATURE REQUEST] Make the space bar bigger!!4 Stimmen 5 Kommentare
I see so many requests to make the spacebar bigger to eliminate the problem with accidentally hitting the period but yet no response or fix from Swiftkey, so I thought I would add on a post. I really want to love Swiftkey and keep switching back to it every couple of weeks but then that darn period problem annoys me so much that I end up quickly switching to another keyboard. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Can barely type anymore.4 Stimmen 10 Kommentare
When I'm typing on another forum the keys have stopped working properly and even when I tap the prediction words it puts in other things. Often pressing spacebar pus in letters like T randomly. Just now trying to type T with a period after wouldn't let me.
It's seems most problematic on that site.
[Fixed in 6.7.8 beta] Accented characters popup is broken Abgeschlossen4 Stimmen 22 Kommentare
I have a Huawei p10 (Android 7, SwiftKey126.96.36.199) and I just noticed this new problem, when I try to use the popup for accented characters (long press) the bubble shows up on the far right, not above the correct character I am holding. The bubble is also partly missing or fully missing depending on the location of the character being held.
I tried googling and found no similar issue.
I tried reinstalling, tried using the GBoard (their popup bubble works fine).
What do I do?
Adding a picture! As you can see I am long-pressing D and the bubble shows up half-broken on the right side. If I hold something more to the right of D it won't even show.

Can't easily capitalize a word after writing Beantwortet4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
There seems to be a bug with the Shift key after SWIPING a word. If I swipe a word, the cursor sits at the end of the word. Usually when the cursor is at the end of the word you can press the SHIFT key and the prediction menu will give you an option to change the word to the capitalized version.
However, if you press the SHIFT key after swiping, instead SwiftKey inserts a space. The SHIFT key is a modifying key and should never add a space. You currently have to push the BACK key, then the SHIFT, then you can select the capitalized Breton of the word
Please fix this.

New quick paste feature in SwiftKey Beta 188.8.131.52 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Just tried it and you have to enable the clipboard feature, and then the copied text shows up as a prediction so if you're in a text field that has prediction disabled (like say... a password entry) it doesn't work. Why can't you implement a simple paste button that will paste whatever was copied? I would mainly use this feature to paste copied passwords from LastPass in apps/websites where getting the paste dialog to show up is either a pain or impossible. I do NOT want a list of my last used passwords showing up on my screen, which is why I disable the clipboard feature to begin with!
As an example, Fleksy has a clipboard feature that lets you swipe from the number row to a row of keys with three functions: Copy, Cut, Paste. No copied text ever shows up on the screen and it will paste the text into any text entry available. SwiftKey could easily have similar functionality by, for example, adding a paste button into the comma key long press that activates voice entry or something similar.

Cannot remove word prediction Beantwortet4 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,

How can I disable combined keyboard?4 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I have English and Persian languages enabled in SwiftKey and a recent update has added a feature that combines the two languages into one keyboard. This doesn't work well at all! I can still get a Persian only keyboard but I can't do that for English anymore. Is there a way to disable this feature and get back separate keyboards again?
No way to create a slide up/down effect for Android?4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I always asked myself why SwiftKey keyboard doesn't show up and hide in an elegant way and now even more when we have Nougat/Oreo with beautiful screen transitions, material design, etc.
Isn't possible to elaborate a sliding effect just like iPhone and even the Samsung default keyboard?
After testing other keyboards in the last days, I just realized that, although this is something minor, it's the type of thing that makes usability more pleasant, more fluid, smooth. So much better than just appearing and disappearing suddenly.
Don't know if it's something thought to reproduce in lower end phones, but could be something available in settings at least.
Apostrophe S Issue4 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
When I'm typing a name and need to use the possessive, I add an apostrophe and then an 's' - but when I hit the space key, SwiftKey (I use SwiftKey Beta) autocorrects by removing the 's' (leaving the apostrophe at the end of the name). It's a bit frustrating having to go back and add the 's' again, I'm hoping it can be fixed. Is anyone else having this problem as well?
