Unable to sync from old phone to new Beantwortet3 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
I've been trying to save all my swiftkey data from my old S6 to new S8 and it logs into my google account without any issues, it says it is syncing, but the data does not transfer from my old phone to the new one.
I've got quite a lot of swiftkey data from maybe 2 years of useage, so I'd like to sync it if possible. Can this be done? I followed your guide below, but this does not work for me, the new phone still has no predicted words, no words completed, no words flowed etc after syncing.
My google account is set to sync app data if that makes a difference?
Can anyone guide me in the right direction please?
Problems with SwiftKey keyboard placement and OnePlus Gesture Navigation Beantwortet4 Stimmen 10 Kommentare
Hi - I have a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android v10, set up for gesture control. As such, I no longer have any navigation buttons on the bottom of my display.
I am having a big problem with SwiftKey, where the keyboard can't be moved to the bottom of my display:
Aside from losing valuable screen real estate, this causes a lot of SwiftKey failures for me.
For example, If I am trying to type with the space bar, or enter key (or, any of the bottom keys), and accidentally hit just a little bit lower than the bottom row key, SwiftKey registers it as a "close keyboard" event, and I lose whatever I was typing. This is a HUGE pain in the rear!
Please update SwiftKey to allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen when the user has selected a gesture navigation method. Note that there are multiple manufacturers that have their own version of gesture navigation (like OnePlus), so the solution should be generic enough to detect that any gesture navigation implementation will allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen.

Number pad option missing from SwiftKey "Keys" menu Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 KommentarEarlier there was an option to have number pad in rows of three, like 1 2 3 on top 4 5 6 in middle and 7 8 9 on bottom, instead of having all numbers in one single row. This option was available in the 'Keys' setting. Today, after a factory reset, I reinstalled all of the apps, including SwiftKey and I couldn't find that option anywhere! Please help me with this. Single row of numbers drive me insane.

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?
[Feature Request] Turn off flow trails Beantwortet5 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
I would like to able to turn off the trail in the flow feature. The trail that follows my finger from one key to the next, at least for me blocks the vision of the keyboard. I've used another keyboard that allows me to turn off the trail. I don't use that other keyboard because SwiftKey is better overall. I think it is best out there.

Switching between Languages Beantwortet7 Stimmen 26 Kommentare
Is there any shortcut to Switch Between Languages? Every time I have to go to settings to select required Language. Very Lengthy Process.
Multiple Language Priority Beantwortet7 Stimmen 25 Kommentare
I use a few different languages with SwiftKey and it works great, but I use English the most. But ever since I added the other languages I communicate in, SwiftKey seems to be suggesting foreign words over common words in English. Like "N°" instead of "No" and "Só" instead of "So".
Is there a way to hint to SwiftKey to prioritize English words so I stop sending "N°, I don't want to go to that restaurant" to my friends?

Backspace after using "Flow" Beantwortet3 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
First of all, I'm used to inputting my texts with swype and Samsung stock keyboard, so I was surprised that SwiftKey doesn't offer an option that enables deleting entire words via one short tap on the backspace key after using the "Flow" method. Having to press the backspace continuously or repeatedly everytime "flow" doesn't recognize a word correctly really slows me down a lot, especially as I have more than just English active at the same time.
Besides it really doesn't make much sense to delete just a few letters at a time if "flow" didn't recognize the correct word in the first place.
Please do something about this!
Swiftkey not found in Google play Beantwortet0 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I can no longer find swiftkey in Google playstore. Have you stopped supporting Android? I use LineageOS 15.1 based on Android 8.1.0 and I have been able to find it and update it until now. If this is the case then I have to find another keyboard. I have used swiftkey since it was released and even paid for it. It's a shame but life goes on.

Cannot Find Personalization Settings Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
As stated in the title, I can't find the personalization settings. When I go to accounts, there is only "your account", "account services", and "account data". There are no options for me to add accounts such as twitter, facebook, gmail, etc for SwiftKey to learn from. There are only SwiftKey account options.

How can I disable multilingual predictions? Beantwortet21 Stimmen 39 Kommentare
How can I disable the multilingual prediction feature (bug).
It is unwanted, uncalled fore, unnecessary, useless, counterproductive, counter-intuitive, and annoying.
Otherwise your app is awesome, until the next update (which hopefully will get rid of this feature) I will be switching to another keyboard, which is a shame.
