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.

How to disable Incognito mode Beantwortet4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Is there a way to completely disable the incognito mode of SwiftKey? It is extremely annoying and does not even know how to do voice to text and the layout and everything is drastically different. I end up having to get out of the application open up something like Microsoft Word, use SwiftKey to type what I wanr then do cut it and then paste it back into the original document because the incognito mode doesn't work very well.
Please tell me how to disable Incognito mode completely.

Adding predictions Beantwortet4 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
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.
Make it easy for me to add.
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.
Can't easily capitalize a word after writing Beantwortet4 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
There seems to be a bug with the Shift key after SWIPING a word. If I swipe a word, the cursor sits at the end of the word. Usually when the cursor is at the end of the word you can press the SHIFT key and the prediction menu will give you an option to change the word to the capitalized version.
However, if you press the SHIFT key after swiping, instead SwiftKey inserts a space. The SHIFT key is a modifying key and should never add a space. You currently have to push the BACK key, then the SHIFT, then you can select the capitalized Breton of the word
Please fix this.

Why is a word I delete repeatedly predicted? Beantwortet4 Stimmen 11 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] Move Cursor with Gestures Beantwortet71 Stimmen 83 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.

Getting used to SwiftKey - Basic features - Capitalization, Word Selection, More Suggestions, Compositing, Shortcuts Beantwortet1 Stimme 3 Kommentare
I'm somewhat new to SwiftKey, as I have used Swype in the past. Even after it has been discontinued, it stayed on my old phone until now. Now, with a new Galaxy S10 (running Android 9), I tried the newest version of SwiftKey from the Play Store, but I feel like I'm missing out on how to use/find basic features, so I have to ask for a little help. :)
So, what I'm looking for:
- How can I increase the number of word suggestions from my swiping? I type in different languages simultaneously, so having only three suggestions means that I have to delete the word that I just swiped and swipe it again if the word I intentioned wasn't suggested (as there are more words available that I could have meant). Having more options to choose from (by scrolling the suggestion/prediction bar), makes the workflow a lot better and quicker.
- How can I capitalize a word that I just typed, especially when it's not in the dictionary yet? Currently, I have to go the text, go delete the first character, use the shift key, type the first character again. Again, that's bad workflow, so I'm looking for the key/shortcut/gesture to just capitalize the current/last word.
- How can I extend the current word? Say, I want to write "SwiftKey" but the keyboard doesn't know the word yet. Right now, I have to swipe both words, resulting in "swift" and "key". Now I have to capitalize both words (or press the shift key beforehand), go back to the text, delete the space inbetween them, put the cursor at the end of the text and continue. Again, really bad workflow. How can I, after swiping "Swift" make sure that the word gets extended by the next word I swipe?
- Bonus question: Are there keyboard shortcuts for selecting the current word, all text (ctrl-a, basically) as well as copy, cut and paste or navigating through the text via cursors?
Thanks in advance for your help, everyone! :)
Edit: Uh, also: How to write German and English quotation marks instead of inch signs? How to write a long dash? (QWERTZ extended)
Question about email domain fill list Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
when entering an email address with Swiftkey, there's the key with the @-sign to the right of the space bar. When doing a long press, it offers a list of domain names (for me "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com" and "@gmail.com") for quick fill. Is there any way to edit this list? I would love to add a few entries to this list.

Love the new theme builder. Just have some suggestions. Could you add the option to modify existing themes? (i.e. Darken or brighten them to match a background) also a slider to adjust the density or color of the keys would be great. Lastly I'd love to see something to adjust the font size on the keys. Thanks everyone! Keep up the great work!
Accuracy of flow is not great. Beantwortet0 Stimmen 5 Kommentare

Turn Off Predictions for Selected Apps Beantwortet0 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
I've been using SwiftKey for a few years now and enjoy it very much. However, I was wondering if you could include a setting where predictions could be turned off for certain apps. For instance, I use several medical apps (LexiComp and Epocrates), and SwiftKey tries to correct the medical terminology that I'm typing, which can be a nuisance. I notice that in some cases (such as typing in passwords), SwiftKey will not show the prediction bar. Could this be applied to certain apps? Thanks!

Is there a button that allows you to easily switch keyboards? I use another keyboard for programming and would like to switch between the two. The programming keyboard and a few others (gboard) you can hold the spacebar to list all of your keyboards if you can add this feature if such does not yet exist. Thanks!
Moving predictions to new phone? Beantwortet0 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I just moved to a new phone, and I assumed that my Swiftkey dictionary and prediction information would move over cleanly, but it doesn't appear so. This being a new phone and all, there was a lot of account setup going on, and now every time I start typing, Swiftkey just wants to suggest various email addresses. :/
How can I get my prediction data from my old phone to my new phone? It's aggravating to think that I'm going to have to train this thing all over again to properly do things.
I found this post from 2 years ago asking the same thing: https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115001479665-How-to-copy-personalised-predictions-from-previous-phone-to-the-new-one-
Unfortunately, that one has no responses, so I hope I have better luck. *fingers crossed*

Can't downgrade to older version via APK. To remove Bing search bar. Beantwortet0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Really not liking this new Bing search bar. I removed the app and downloaded an older apk from apk mirror. Just one or two .https://pnrstatus.vip/ versions behind. None of them will install however. When i hit the apk it says installing for a bit then it says "APK not installed". Only the current version will install on my galaxy Note 8 running android 8.0. Tried https://sarkariresult.onl/ multiple reboots, clearing cache and data for the app as well as clearing cache of the phone itself. Have they prevented downgrades somehow ? Any ideas how to remedy?Mobdro

[Not a bug] No prediction in Excel cells Beantwortet4 Stimmen 37 Kommentare
i've been using Swiftkey for a long time to edit spreadsheets in Excel for Android. After the last update (21/08 if i'm correct) the prediction words on the upper side of the swiftkey keyboard do not show up!
Before the update the prediction was working flawlessly when i was editing a cell. Did you change that on purpose or is it a bug. I hope it's just a bug because i need the predictions back!

keyboard letter change Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I have been using swiftkey for awhile and the other day while using it to swype the letters randomly changed. The "W" and the "Z" switched places on the keyboard. I can not figure out how to get this changed back. This happened once before and I had to delete it and re-install.
