Sync Clipboard Beantwortet5 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
I see there other posts on these but the *status is closed without any conclusion.*
How important does SwiftKey think is a good idea to sync Clipboard? This often consists of my usernames or passport number, greeting messages to my clients. And after every phone reset or phone device upgrade, I have to redo everything again. I need to take the trouble of copying every clipboard pinned texts to Evernote and then put it in SwiftKey. We are heading into 2020.

How can I disable multilingual predictions? Beantwortet23 Stimmen 42 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.
[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Beantwortet98 Stimmen 102 Kommentare
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.

change emoji gender Beantwortet1 Stimme 21 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.

Voice to text not working properly Beantwortet3 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
I'm running andriod 10 on a Pixel 3 and voice to text has become more and more erratic. It's always had seemingly random capitalization and now, as of the past few days, random punctuation. Getting to the point of being unusable? Anyone experiencing these problems?
How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Beantwortet4 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance
Clips in clipboard Beantwortet0 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
Is there a way to to automatically save the clips on clipboard? The clips get deleted after 1 hour but I don't want them to be deleted. I know pining them will solve the problem but I want a permanent solution so that my copied items can stay in clipboard forever without needing to pin them individually.

Multiple Language Priority Beantwortet7 Stimmen 26 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?
Number Pad Layout Beantwortet4 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
I would like an option in the settings to display the number pad with 123 starting at the bottom instead of at the top. It is more natural for me. I also find that I make critical errors in typing numbers because the 123 starts at the top.
Could you please add this feature in the next update.
New toolbar introduced, how can I hide or disable it? (2020) Beantwortet5 Stimmen 8 Kommentare
A new toolbar with many new features has been introduced (https://9to5google.com/2018/03/15/swiftkey-update-toolbar-stickers/). However I don't need it and it disrupts my workflow (buttons present in the text input, like Telegram stickers, are now 1 row more distant from text input).
How can I disable it?
Thanks for the answers and the interest.
You can disable it by pressing the button on the left of all the words prediction, the one that you see in the picture, and it will be hidden.

Change case sensitive of already typed text Beantwortet3 Stimmen 5 Kommentare
I've just changed from Windows Phone to Android and installed the Swiftkey keyboard.
On Windows Phone, if I wanted to switch a text or a whole message to upper or lower cases, I just selected all the text or the specific word and pressed the up arrow (that handles upper or lower) and it was converted. I checked that on Android I can convert the word pressing space after it. Can you please add this funcionality to it? It's a better and fast way to do it...

Emoji android 10 not updated Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 1 KommentarSwiftKey is absurd at this point. It's been like 3 months since I got android 10 on my note 10. Have contacted support and communicated with them about the issue. It has still not been fixed. Emojis have no been updated for SwiftKey in Android 10. It says that it uses whatever emojis are available on the device, yet it's stuck still only using the android 9 emojis. Every other keyboard I have on my device uses the new emojis just fine. So they clearly can't figure it out. Support is absolutely useless on here.

Custom Toolbar Beantwortet1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
After the recent update, it is impossible to remove items from the toolbar. Can you pls consider re-instating the option of removing unwanted buttons to allow "swift" entry than making it mandatory to keep 6 buttons.
Microphone, for speech to text Beantwortet1 Stimme 3 KommentareSuddenly, when I'm using the microphone for speech to text, SwiftKey is inserting periods where I do not want them. Can insert it automatically when I pause? For even a second. . Does everyone see this? ? Like it put a? In it for me. And it's putting a men in places where I don't want them. This is how it looks when I speak.
[Duplicate] Android - Showing red underlines for *all* words in second language Beantwortet1 Stimme 6 Kommentare
(Sorry for reposting this, since the last post was closed for further comments and I couldn't reply)
This is not an Android issue - see two screenshots below, one with GBoard, one with SwiftKey - both of them work fine for the first language (English), but for the second language (Hebrew), SwiftKey shows all words as misspelled. For GBoard, I also added a misspelled word at the end of the Hebrew text, just to show that the spell checker does work there.
The solution @Alpert referred me to here (below), turns off spell check entirely, which is not something I'm looking for - I do want it, but I want it to work properly.
For some reason, SwiftKey Android shows red underlines under *all* words in my second language (Hebrew), like they're all misspelled. It does work fine for the first language (=English).
This issue doesn't happen when I switch to another keyboard.
Red underline [Not a SK problem] Beantwortet3 Stimmen 10 Kommentare
Hi, quick question
Ned to remove the red line under words and i wanna make him stop asking me to add words to the dictionary. Tried every settings, nothing worked, it keeps doing this. Im frustrated!!
Finally got my voice to text back but now Google is interfering. HELP! Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
After my microphone quit working I spent three hours messing around and finally got it somewhat back. Seems that "Google Voice Typing" was toggled on and interfering with SwiftKey. After I turned that off it seems to work but now I have another problem. Now I'm seeing this screen (See attached) that I've never seen before that has to do with Google and it's giving me suggestions but it's causing another issue. It's creating one more step before I can send a text and more importantly...it also doesn't listen as long before and it quits recording.so I find myself having to erase the text and start it over again. It used to give me the option to continue my existing text. Do you know if this has anything to do with SwiftKey or with Google
Thank you in advance for any suggestions
