Voice-to-text has gotten worse suddenly Beantwortet7 Stimmen 24 Kommentare
It seems like in the last few days my voice-to-text feature has gotten significantly worse. I don't know if this is a Swiftkey thing or a Google thing, but it started happening a few days ago after my phone installed an update and updated a bunch of apps at the same time. The interface looks a bit different, and there are a few significant changes:
- The timeout when I stop talking has drastically decreased, to the point where if I hesitate even a tiny bit between words it stops listening.
- The guesses it makes are often way off, where before they were very reliable
- There was previously a feature where I could tap on a predicted word, and it would bring up a list of other guesses for the word, which was extremely useful when it got something wrong, but it doesn't appear to do that anymore.
- Previously I could hit backspace to delete the last word and it would stay in listening mode, now hitting backspace makes it stop listening.
I use the voice-to-text a ton, so if it's really this broken now it's sort of a dealbreaker for me with Swiftkey, which would be a bummer since I've really liked it up until now. Has anyone else experienced this change recently and found a way to fix it? For reference, I have a Samsung Galaxy s10 with fully updated OS and app. Thanks!

Option do disable proper noun suggestion? Swiftkey's suggestion of proper nouns makes it unusable Beantwortet1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
Swiftkey will frequently suggest "Eben", a city somewhere in the world when I am trying to do "even". In fact it seems like more often than not swiftkey will attempt a strange proper noun where some other word is intended. I see users reporting this frustration 4 years ago and... their accounts being deleted. Why can't swiping be for non proper nouns and poking (in swiftkey) be necessary if you want to do a proper noun, why can't there be a toggle switch somewhere, "don't swift proper nouns"?
I've tried to use swiftkey for 10+ years and slowly come to the realization it's dramatically slower than more traditional other input methods because of the authors inability to address obvious frustrations and solutions. :'(
HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS AND OVERVIEW IT AND EDIT IT IN A FILE? Beantwortet5 Stimmen 2 Kommentare

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS?
I want to create a backup file from all the created clipboard shortcuts.
AND OVERVIEW IT?
in my phone i can't organise the shortcuts, i can only create a lot and scroll through the created shortcuts and edit them when i can find them. But after making hundreds of shortcuts it is frustrating to lose an overview and not be able to organise them all on Alphabetical order and in a spreadsheet file or anything exportable to a cloud - document - excel conversion so i can keep the shortcuts and export the file to another device and use them all again on that device.
This could be handy for educational tool on schools and universities with standard shortcuts.
Also it would be great if the overview is possible in a spreadsheet so people can really learn the shortcuts and overview them, edit the ones they want to edit and restore the file to the device or devices.
AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?
Talking about a dowloadable file is the first thing we need to do if we think about shortcuts on keyboards.
Swiftkey would be the best app if it allows users to create a file and make them able to edit these shortcuts personal in an editor online or on a spreadsheet cloud environment.
Clipboard disappears in password forms Beantwortet0 Stimmen 4 Kommentare
When trying to fill a password field, the 2 rows above the keys disappear and I can't paste what I copied. If I switch to the gboard keyboard, their clipboard shows so I can paste in the password.
Is there a setting or fix for this, or do I switch between the 2 input methods?

Lost all of my clips from clipboard Beantwortet1 Stimme 13 Kommentare
Didn't know until recently that the three lines on the keyboard gave you access to the clipboard. Well, the first time I found it, all of my clips were there. After going back to the keyboard, I tried it again, this time hoping to paste something. But when I went to the clipboard the second time, all of my clips were gone!
I thought maybe the keyboard was just acting up, but when I went through the actually SwiftKey app, all of my clips were missing from there as well!
What the heck happened? Can I get them back?
*I didn't download anything or do a phone or app update of any kind before this happened.*

Automatic space before punctuation mark Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 KommentarThe auto space setting is turned off on my phone, but the app inserts a space automatically after a word and then it doesn't move the punctuation mark next to the word. l have just downloaded the beta version. It never occurred on the other version. This is frustrating as I have to correct this every time. Could you please please correct this ? Case on point. I have a Samsung galaxy A33, brand new.
Emoji key disappearing Beantwortet4 Stimmen 12 KommentareHi all,For the last day or two the dedicated emoji button doesn't show on my keyboard, even though the option is turned on.The only thing I can think of that might be related is that I've subscribed to the beta version of the Google app.Keyboard theme is Carbon but switching doesn't seem to change anything.Restarting helped but after a while it's missing again.I'm using a Poco X3 Pro, running on MIUI 12.5.7.Would really love the help.

Quando succede non appare più su nessuna app, l'unico modo che ho per farla funzionare di nuovo è: o riavviare lo smartphone o andare nelle impostazioni di android cambiare tastiera e ricambiarla subito sulla swiftkey.

Swiftkey + Huawei Matepad + Google Docs Beantwortet-3 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
I'm using Microsoft Swiftkey on a brand new Huawei Matepad BAH3 - W59 with Android 10. Whenever I try to type on Google Docs, be it the installed app or webpage in desktop mode, the words just duplicate themselves in a strange way and the delete/backspace is super laggy and non-responsive, especially if I type in a language that has diacritics. Turning off Autocorrect doesn't help. Typing in other apps/webpages works fine tho.

Nightmare using Swiftkey on Facebook Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
What is the exact procedure to edit sentences with swiftkey on the Facebook app? Something has been updated and the behavior has changed dramatically.
It's been great forever: put the cursor where you want to edit halfway through the sentence, press delete a few times to delete words and type new ones, cursor stays where you expect it, all good. But that has all changed. Now, i'll put the cursor at the end of the word i want to delete halfway through the sentence, and press delete once. It removes the last character of that word, which is "method", so the 'd' is removed, but it changes the 'e' to an 'i' (so it now says 'methi') BUT i can't continue editing that word because Swiftkey puts the cursor at the end of my post with an underscore on the last word in rediness to change that instead!
So i have to put the cursor to the end of "methi', press delete to continue deleting but it puts a space after 'methi' instead! It does other odd things, not always the same exact error, but always the infuriating editing mess where you cant just put the cursor where you want and have it behave as expected when deleting. The only workaround being to use any other keyboard ionstead of SwiftKey when using the facebook app. This issue does not happen in Evernote or Emails.

cursor jumping around weirdly and getting stuck (space bar cursor control fixes?) Beantwortet1 Stimme 8 KommentareSometimes when I'm typing (not sure when this happens exactly) my cursor will be forcefully moved to a new location. when I try to tap in the text box to go where I want, the cursor moves visually, but when I type it puts me back in that new location. I'm stuck there until I long press the space bar to move the cursor in a new location. screen record example: https://imgur.com/a/WQ666Xz
Prediction has disappeared Beantwortet1 Stimme 1 KommentarI have tried logging out, restarting my phone n then logging back on... Nothing works.
Swiftkey has stopped working! Beantwortet7 Stimmen 6 KommentareI've been using swiftkey for years now with no issues. As of this morning it has complete broken. I can still "type" with it. But: The top bar with predictions and autocorrect has gone completely blank. Spellcheck is nonexistant I cant delete in blocks anymore, I have to tap delete for every letter and it doesnt autospace after punctuation or auto captialize letters. Swipe text has completwly stopped working. And finally if i press the emoji button it just completely freezes my phone which is just fantastic! I really dont want to have to switch keyboard apps as i really like swiftkey when its working so any help is very much appreciated. I have restarted my phone, cleared my caches and reinstalled the app multiple times now with no success. Help!
Auto-correct changing valid words Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 3 KommentareQuite often SwiftKey will change a valid word to another word incorrectly. I'll type "while" and it will change it to "whole", "if" to "of" and similar. It would be great to have a switch to the effect "Don't change valid words".

Editing misspelled word causes cursor to jump to another spot Beantwortet0 Stimmen 4 Kommentare
When using flow, if there's a error and I don't notice and use arrows to go back to the correction spot and start to type, the cursor suddenly jumps to the end and changes the last word I typed. This is a very new development and super annoying.
