How do I stop the incognito notification from appearing? Beantwortet1 Stimme 1 KommentarFor a while, every time I turn incognito on I get a notification telling me that I am using incognito that covers my keyboard for a few seconds. I am familiar with the incognito mode and I don't want that thing to make me wait every time I use it. Is there any way to disable it? I tried looking in the setting but even the 'disable notifications' button doesn't prevent the disclaimer from popping up.

Bug: predictions stop working in Chrome constantly, requiring booting Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Android 10 with One UI 2.5
On the inside screen ("tablet" screen of the this foldable phone) the Swiftkey prediction stops working after a few uses: predictions show up properly above the keys but selecting a prediction actually doesn't fix the written erronuous text but only adds a space after the incorrectly typed text. This is clearly a bug.
It always works for one use after a boot, but soon stops working again. So I reboot a lot.
This only happens in Chrome, in the address bar and in any text fields of forms. Restarting the app (force close from settings/apps) and then restarting it from app list does not fix it, only a reboot does. It's problematic that it happens in Chrome because that is the app where I type the most. I cannot change from Chrome since it is forced to be used in our company (a multinational industrial giant) on Windows and I wish to sync the browser with my private Chrome user id on that computer.
I have no experience if prediction works properly on the front screen as I never type on it (it is too narrow to type with adult hands).
The phone has been in use for only two weeks. Removing Switfkey settings (cache + saved data) and the app and reinstallation do not fix the problem.
It is very very annoying, almost enough to stop using Swiftkey and go to the Samsung keyboard. But I'd hate to do that since I've used Swiftkey for a lot of years and it knows my writing very well know. It is great, the rare times it happens to work.
I would make a bug report but cannot find where.The app does not have a feedback option anywhere.
Microsoft Translate doesn't auto translate If we copy the message twice Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
I am using microsoft translator with WhatsApp.
It is working smooth when I was writing my message and It is simultaneously translating my messages. Then I just send it.
Furthermore, when I select the incoming message and press copy button while Microsoft Translator already selected from the keyboard shortcut, It is directly translating the incoming message. This is superb, however, when I copy it twice, It is not translating the message, only copy the message to clipboard. If I select different message and press copy again, It is translating automatically. And If I select it again, It is not translating the same message anymore.
I think there is a bug at the usage of translator. Is there any way to fix it or any solution, your kind reply would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

change emoji gender Beantwortet-3 Stimmen 23 Kommentare
Okay how do i explain it. So, some of the emojis on my swiftkey keyboard are only male or female. For example ( 🤷) how do i pick the male one?
fyi i can see the male one when someone else is typing it.
Also, there's an option on gboard to pick it. I just don't like the keyboard. I prefer SwiftKey.
Can I clean up my data and migrate it from my Google account to my Microsoft Account? Beantwortet1 Stimme 2 Kommentare
I see a lot of issues here being blamed on using a Google account so figured it would be a good idea to switch over to my MS account whilst upgrading my phone. When I log out of my Google account in the app, it wipes all my data so I can't log in and sync with my MS account. There's an option to export my data which I can clean up using a json editor but no option to import it back in.
I switched over to SwiftKey from Swype (which I'd been using on my Symbian phone) a decade ago and being a Brit company I've been evangelical with my support for the app over the years. It has always managed to stay ahead of or at least keep up with the curve. However, over the last couple of years, it is increasingly playing catchup. I only notice the gap when upgrading my phone and having to temporarily use Gboard or Samsung Keyboard. With all the data you have collated and MS's AI knowledge hopefully you can shake off the cobwebs and get back on track or maybe next time, we'll stick with the default keyboard. Oh, the irony!

Backspace doesn't work in GitHub Codespaces, GBoard works better Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 KommentarGitHub Codespaces uses the Monaco Editor so anything that uses that is affected by this: Azure DevOps, Azure App Service Editor, and many many more sites. Easy repro steps: 1. Go here: https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor 2. Type something in one of the examples and then hit backspace a few times You expect backspace to remove the characters but instead it does nothing. I hope this can be fixed so I can use GitHub Codespaces on my phone!
Korean input error using Bluetooth Keyboard Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Device: Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
OS: Android 10 (Latest update)
SwiftKey: Latest update
Physical Keyboard: Logitech K850
There is an issue when typing keyboard on the smartphone using bluetooth keyboard.
In Korean keyboard, we use Shift key to enter 'Double consonant'.
QWERTY keyboard 'W' represents Korean consonant 'ㅈ'.
Then Shift+W enters 'ㅉ'.
QWERTY 'J' represents Korean vowel 'ㅓ', but Shift+J still should be 'ㅓ'
because there is nothing like 'double vowel.'
In Swiftkey with Korean input, Shift + J('ㅓ') temporarily changes to English input mode and enters English capital 'J' which I didn't want to.
I hope you could correct this error so that Shift + (Korean vowel) still enters (Korean vowel) instead of English capital letter.
In Korean input method, Shift + (Vowel) means nothing but just typing (Vowel),
but it is very easy to mistakenly enter Shift + (Vowel)

use the arrow keys line with a physical keyboard Beantwortet-2 Stimmen 4 Kommentare
Would it be possible to make use of Swiftkey's arrow keys line when using a physical keyboard? Here with my Blackberry KEY2, I use the physical keyboard and SwiftKey, which displays the suggestions line and few widgets more (extras). I cruelly miss the arrow keys!
Turn off auto - cursor move Beantwortet13 Stimmen 14 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.

端末の縦/横で異なるキーレイアウトを選択可能にしてほしい Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 Kommentare日本語におけるスマートフォンによるキー入力は、大半が片手によるフリック(テンキー)入力で行われています。しかし、端末を横に持った場合、片手入力は難しく、横幅を生かしてQWERTY入力を行いたいのですが、現在のSwiftkey ではいちいち設定を変更しなくてはレイアウトを変更することが出来ません。端末の向き毎にレイアウトを切り替えてくれる設定を追加してください、Gboardをはじめ多くの日本語IMが同種の機能を持っています。 特にSurface Duoではこの問題が顕著になります。横に持ってフリック入力では折角の2画面の意味が半減してしまいます。
