Allow customization of characters on alternative keyboard. (numeric/ special characters) Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 KommentarSwiftKey could allow customization of special characters showed on numeric keyboard. Note that special characters are very related to each user special needs. Also, sometimes user needs some few alphabetic characters when using numeric alternative keyboard. Passwords are a typical case where it occurs. Regular characters (a to x) could be accessed thru long press on this keyboard and this will eliminate the need to go back and forth on regular and numeric keyboards. The layout on numeric keyboard offers enough slots to do it. Another problem is that the current version changes the special characters to another one when long pressed without any hint of which caharcater will be used. This is a mess
Can not give up typing after a key long press Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 KommentarAfter long pressing a key user must choose any of the popes up characters. Sometimes usera make a mistake and just wants to give up and this is not possible. Auwift key should show on alternative character list a slot that allows user to cancel the operation. Alternatively it can allow a movement such as moving to space bar to indicate the operation to be canceled.

Voice to Text & multi language Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 KommentareAfter the last update I can't switch to Google voice recognition anymore, it still shows Bing interface. Moreover I can't use several languages as I still can do with no-beta Version (German and Russian), the recognition is only in German. Please fix.
Give us the ability to switch voice back to Google api for voice typing Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 KommentareThe newest SwiftKey beta doesn't use the Google voice typing and there's no customization on it, it's too sensitive and stops voice input when I pause for a new sentence. Word recognition is worse than Google, it won't let me type curse words, and what's up with the tiny delete button in the corner. Y'all can do voice to text on your own if you want but let us choose between yours and Googles
PLEASE FIX THUMB LAYOUT FROM LAST UPDATE!!! Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
If you check the reviews on the playstore many people who use the thumb layout are saying the last update makes it unusable.
The space in the middle is now almost 75% of the keyboard
Please fix it or add the option for the old layout.
You can't expect people to use this keyboard for years and then change the layout.
Voice typing keeps cutting off in Google Docs - SwiftKey on Android Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
About a week ago (about Sept. 25, 2020), my Google Voice Typing, which I use with SwiftKey (now owned by Microsoft), stopped working. The microphone stayed on in listening mode for only about two to three seconds (depending on my device), unless I kept talking rapidly and unnaturally without any pauses, almost as though I were reading a book for one of those speeded up commercials. If I paused at all, or stopped to think briefly, the microphone would shut off, and I'd have to tap it again to continue. Sometimes it seems like it doesn't hear me at all after I tap 'Tap to start', or maybe just hears a few words, stops listening in the middle of a sentence, and then stops a few seconds afterwards, as though I had stopped speaking. It never used to work like this… I was able to use it very efficiently to compose writings on Google Docs. I would be able to pause from 5 to 10 seconds before continuing speaking.
I wonder if the speech buffer is filling up, and that's turning off the microphone, and then it stops a few seconds later because it's not hearing anything anymore.
This degradation happened about the same time on all my Android devices where I used Voice Typing. I noticed that I was asked to agree to permissions again when this problem started, and the user interface also changed, so I think that this happened because of a faulty upgrade.
I haven't yet found anyone else complaining about this happening recently. I also wonder if it's some app I installed that uses the microphone, but I can't find anything so far.
Any ideas…? Thanks. David
P.S. I tried Voice Typing in Google Docs on my Chromebook laptop, and the microphone stays on for about 23 seconds after I stop talking. This is how it should work on my Android devices, and pretty much how it used to work, although I'm not sure it stayed on quite that long. I wish there were a setting on it so it would stay on indefinitely until you turned it off.
P.P.S. I just replaced SwiftKey with Gboard on my Android tablet. Now Google Voice Typing works just fine. In fact, it appears to stay on for a very long time before turning off, just the way I would like it to act. Strange that a Google update has just effectively destroyed one of Microsoft's SwiftKeys most attractive features… Hopefully, it was just an unfortunate coincidence.
And too bad that Gboard is apparently not as good as SwiftKey. I guess I'll find out...
Using Katakana and small characters on Microsoft Swiftkey? Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I'm using Microsoft Swiftkey as my Japanese keyboard. Currently, the only way I've been able to pull up katakana and small characters is by typing it entirely in hiragana and hoping that it didn't decide to split the word (because then it won't correct it).
If there isn't a way to do this on Swiftkey, I'd appreciate suggestions for alternatives that do have these things. Thank you.
Voice typing Beantwortet-4 Stimmen 1 KommentarHello, Before you've used Google voice typing but now you're using Microsoft's I guess. The issue is that it doesn't have an ability to set more languages for voice typing. I'm using SwiftKey in 2 languages English and Croatian (it worked when you were using Google voice typing) and it's awful that there no more choice but English...

Cannot remove word prediction Beantwortet4 Stimmen 17 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,

I like the flow and I like gestures. Gestures have an option to delete by swiping to the left ⬅, and to hide keyboard by sweeping down ⬇, but I'd like to see a feature where we could move pointer, just by sliding our finger on the keyboard.
Can't downgrade to older version via APK. To remove Bing search bar. Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
Really not liking this new Bing search bar. I removed the app and downloaded an older apk from apk mirror. Just one or two .https://pnrstatus.vip/ versions behind. None of them will install however. When i hit the apk it says installing for a bit then it says "APK not installed". Only the current version will install on my galaxy Note 8 running android 8.0. Tried https://sarkariresult.onl/ multiple reboots, clearing cache and data for the app as well as clearing cache of the phone itself. Have they prevented downgrades somehow ? Any ideas how to remedy?Mobdro
Numbers Panel Beantwortet0 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
In one of the old versions of Swiftkey the numbers panel showed numbers vertically (i.e. the way you see on a calculator) but now the numbers panel shows it as a row. I already have a row of numbers in my text panel, I usually switch to numbers panel when I want to enter big numbers (like credit card number) and it feels natural to use a calculator type layout to enter
can you please bring it back?
Voice to text not working properly Beantwortet3 Stimmen 8 Kommentare

keyboard letter change Beantwortet1 Stimme 3 Kommentare
I have been using swiftkey for awhile and the other day while using it to swype the letters randomly changed. The "W" and the "Z" switched places on the keyboard. I can not figure out how to get this changed back. This happened once before and I had to delete it and re-install.
Question mark Beantwortet3 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Suggestion. I am on Android not sure if all versions are the same or not.
But i like to use the question mark a bit and unfortunately your long press (on the period/dot) highlights the period first, which is a bit counter productive.
Can you pretty please make the question mark the first option when the long press menu comes up. Or better yet move it to a single option long press maybe.?
Best keyboard out there otherwise, thanks very much.

Always show accented keys Beantwortet0 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Is it possible to set swiftkey to always show keys with accented characters? E.g. in a separate line, like in xperia keyboard, which is now unfortunately dropped by Sony in favour of swiftkey. If swiftkey doesn't know this setting, I have to search for something else.
Question about email domain fill list Beantwortet2 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
when entering an email address with Swiftkey, there's the key with the @-sign to the right of the space bar. When doing a long press, it offers a list of domain names (for me "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com" and "@gmail.com") for quick fill. Is there any way to edit this list? I would love to add a few entries to this list.
