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.
Account won't sync across devices Beantwortet1 Stimme 17 Kommentare
I have a tablet that I use SwiftKey on, and just also installed it onto my new smartphone. I made sure backup & sync was enabled on the tablet, then signed into the same account on the phone and told it to sync, but my account data won't load.

Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.

One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.

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.

Ugly Emojis Beantwortet1 Stimme 5 Kommentare
I'm so dissapointed that I can't download a different style of emojis. The included ones are ugly and may also look interely different when used in different apps. This is a major fault to SwiftKey Keyboard which is really good in all other aspects, the best one out there.

Please stop suggesting words from language B when I'm typing in language A Beantwortet11 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
this seriously annoys me to no end sometimes. I use German and English language and it happens so many times that whenever I press space for auto correct/complete it just fill in a word from the other language which makes no sense and it doesn't even exist in that way in the language I currently use.

Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) Beantwortet3 Stimmen 11 Kommentare
I'd hoped this issue would have been fixed by now but it appears that it's not a very popular problem, and so I've decided to take it upon myself to provide the correct information to get it looked at. I have found a few other forum posts with the exact same issue, so I hope this helps you all too.
Here is the required information;
- Huawei P20 Pro - EE network, UK
- Android 8.1.0: Huawei's EMUI build, version CLT-L09 126.96.36.199(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 188.8.131.52
- Steps to reproduce:
- When typing in the standard layout QWERTY keboard, if pressing the "123" key in the very bottom-left of the keyboard, immediately and swiftly followed by punctuation such as a question mark (on the symbol/number layout that appears), the keyboard acts as though the "enter" key in the very bottom-right of the symbol keyboard is pressed before the punctuation you selected, despite not pressing it at all. This means that a new line begins before your punctuation, and it shouldn't. For example, if attempting to quickly type the word "What?" on the keyboard, you will get this instead:
- I have added a link below to a screen-recording of the issue. In the video, you will see the "?" and the "enter" keys both light up as though both are being pressed, however only the "?" is actually being pressed. What you should see is "What?", there should not be a new line added before the "?". This happens with other punctuation also, but as the "?" is the most frequently used, I thought I'd go with that for the video.
- Link: https://vimeo.com/312434866
Importantly: This error does NOT happen if you restore the Swiftkey application to its original version via the Google Playstore. The issue only begins when updating the application, and so the bug must have inadvertently been included recently. I can't remember when the issue started, but it has been a few months and a handful of updates, and the issue still remains.
I hope this information is sufficient to locate and fix this bug, it's a real nut-ache for me as it happens 95% of the time I use punctuation after a word.
