Can there be a way to view my input history?
I have written a whole lot of text and it was deleted by accident, the auto fill brought back some of it, but a lot got lost?

Can there be a way to view my input history?
Add new feature-2 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Add the ability to assign the selected character to the gesture from left to right on the keyboard. For example, the sign "?"
That would be very convenient!
Suggestions and feedback from new user0 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
I really appreciate details like adjusting sound and vibrate with really fine adjustment, which alternatives neglect.
Things I wish it had:
*hyphenation and colons, etc are added with a space making it difficult to add new hyphenated words.
*backspace has to be held down to delete wrong words. I realize this preference may vary but I've gotten used to a backspace resulting in immediate deletion of entire wrong word, not only by a long press.
*wish the top and bottom bars were smaller
*wish the top bar had more suggestions and or scrolled right
*when the accent and unusual characters menu is disabled I wish holding down a key double long still offered the accent and unusual characters which turn out to be really hard to access unless it's enabled. Alternatively one could long press the number option for additional key maps.
Overall a great feeling and functioning, intuitive, fun keyboard comparable to an apple product and that is a high complement.
Windows 10 clipboard isn't syncing with my android device4 Stimmen 1 Kommentar

Accented characters at first place1 Stimme 2 Kommentare
In every single keyboard in the world, if you long press a letter, you get a variety of additional symbols and accented characters (according to language) at first position. The reason is obvious, you type more words than special symbols like brackets. In Czech language, almost every word has at least one accented character. With SwiftKey, where accented characters on second position after brackets etc, typing is even worse than with stock keyboard. I love many things of SwiftKey, but this is major issue while typing in language using diacritics.
This is example of text in Czech, it is about SwiftKey by the way:
SwiftKey je jedna z nejpoužívanějších virtuálních klávesnic ve smartphonech. Někteří výrobci, např. Huawei/Honor nebo Sony, ji dokonce do svých nadstaveb předinstalovávají jako primární klávesnici, ale stáhnout z marketu a instalovat na platformy Android a iOS ji může každý. Nově je androidová mutace SwiftKey zase o něco chytřejší. Microsoft jako její současný vlastník do ní přidal překladač v reálném čase.
You see how many diacritics is there? Can you imagine how insane it is to write this while every long tap option has a bracket or comma at first position?
I saw similar topics here with Hungarian user complaining and the topic was flagged "not planned". Why? This is not about improvement to be the best keyboard out there, this is more like issue to be fixed for SwifKey not to be the worst keyboard available.
Restore didn't restore any settings2 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I had to restore my phone and now all my settings are lost. It really took a long time to get things setup to work properly with a bluetooth keyboard and I'm reading in other posts that these settings aren't part of the backup?
If that's true then you should rename the feature to 'sync' not 'backup and sync.' By calling it a backup you imply that our settings are saved. I would have done screen shots or something to save my settings.
Hidden status/notification bar turns blue when keyboard is present (s10e)0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
If I try to use the keyboard when apps are full screen and the notification bar is hidden, instead of staying transparent the bar will turn a bright blue color. This only happens with SwiftKey, not when I used the default samsung keyboard.
[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Beantwortet73 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.

Japanese input predictions too large0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
The Japanese input has recently had this annoying problem. The typing is normal, but if I try to enlarge the prediction box by pressing the downwards pointing arrow, the predictions become unusable.
The same thing happens on landscape mode:
The predictions apparently work normally, since pressing those huge buttons doesn't give the right prediction. They are only drawn like that. For example, pressing the right edge of the "the" prediction would give "www.google.com" as a prediction instead of "the."
I tried deleting all data from Swiftkey, but the Japanese predictions worked normally only for about one minute while I was adjusting settings. Reverting the settings to normal did not fix the problem.
My device is Samsung Galaxy tab A model SM-T585. I have the latest device and Swiftkey versions. I have android 8.1.0. Swiftkey is version 126.96.36.199. This problem has been present for several months.
Japanese input errors0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
There is an issue with Japanese input where you do not get "standard alphabet" predictions such as katakana of typed letters. For example, there are times when you type "whi" ウィ should appear in prediction but what you see in prediction bar are several of うぃ. One of which does provide ウィ once selected but no way of knowing which one it is. it is incorrectly displayed. also it does not distinguish narrow katakana and normal katakana letters in prediction bar in some cases. in case of うぃ、one of 3 results in ｳｨ. in all case of single katakana word prediction, prediction bar shows 2 of the same normal katakana but one is narrow katakana once selected.
as for narrow katakana, it is not typically used, so it would be nice to have an option to turn off narrow katakana from showing up. long stings of katakana is typically used for foreign words and it is typically impossible with swiftkey to provide proper prediction. having dedicated katakana conversion key of sort to turn all currently typed letters to turn into katakana would be nice addition, as most traditional type software do for japanese.
Gif URL malformed in Discord on Android2 Stimmen 9 Kommentare
Since the update that added bing search my gif search urls always come out malformed with bing based urls instead of basic giphy urls. This occurs mostly in discord. An example of the malformed url is https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?id=OGC.4dd61a717cf29c08687669441f42f628&pid=Api&rurl=https%3a%2f%2fmedia.giphy.com%2fmedia%2frrFcUcN3MFmta%2fgiphy.gif&ehk=S38Kmk26VoJ2AhyuITzsNQ where as the expected url is https://media.giphy.com/media/rrFcUcN3MFmta/giphy.gif
I know that this url is technically valid but discord is unable to properly expand the gifs sent in this format and instead sends them as stills.
Any ideas how to make it use the proper giphy url?
Multiple Puppet Feature Issues1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
The 1st issue I have is when I'm using the stock keyboard for my Oneplus 6T and the puppet feature would only allow me to send the video directly if I was using Textra.
The 2nd issue I'm experiencing is that after I send one puppet video, the following puppet recordings will only send the 1st video I sent, not the new recordings. I tried to send my girlfriend 3 different recordings and all 3 attachments were just the same 1st video.

Is there a plan where we flick or swipe down an alphabet to type the corresponding punctuations? Flick up gives Capital Letters and flick down/ swipe down should give characters like, . ? / etc.. is there this feature?
Insert "corrected word" can be better1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
Swiftkey seems to be the only keyboard that when you have a misspelled word, when you put the cursor anywhere on the word to insert the correct suggested word, it inserts the correct word in the middle of the word or better yet, wherever the cursor is in that incorrect word. All other keyboards just replace that incorrect in its entirety with the correct word. VERY inconvenient to have to then go back & delete before & after the now inserted correct word.
That really is my one complaint with this keyboard. Are there any plans to address this at all?

My pocket somehow made the Keyboard small, now it's stuck small0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Somehow my pocket screwed with the keyboard. Made it a different key layout, put it in split mode, and made it small. I've fixed everything but the size. I cannot make it bigger and it's way too small now.
Keyboard suddenly goes to max size while typing0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I have set the keyboard to be a custom size (smaller) and sometimes when I type quickly it goes back to the standard large size. I have to resize it again. I'm not pressing the dotted square icon on the bottom left.
Swiping predictions got very bad recently0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Hello. Have no idea how to leave a feedback, so I post here. Sorry if that's a wrong place.
Last few weeks the prediction while swiping got much worse. Was there an update?
Especially in Ukrainian. Shows me words from a different language.
I assume it depends on a context (app) I'm within. Because right now is good. But I switch to slack or a messenger and it gets bad again.
Not sure what to do about it.

Please stop ruining "Ninja Trainer" Skin. It was perfect the way it was.1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
I've been using the "ninja trainer" skin for years and have loved it. Lately there have been some updates that have made it very hard to keep using.
Ninja trainer was all about having "blank" keys. This is great for the normal qwerty keyboard, but a recent update about a month ago removed the symbols for the alternate keyboards. As a developer, I use a lot of symbols when I'm chatting with my employees and now that they have been removed, I find myself going into incognito mode whenever I'm not typing normal letters. I think a lot of people using this skin probably know the qwerty keyboard very well, but do not know your unstandardized layout for symbols. Lastly for some unknown reason you hid all the symbols, but left the numpad exposed. IF ANYTHING, hide the damn numpad and expose the symbols...
Just this week you added a ^ < and > arrows to the middle of my "split" keyboard. I don't want nor will ever use this feature either.
What I'm requesting is that you roll back these unwanted changes by removing the arrows down the middle of the split and re-adding the symbols back. Alternatively, release a "ninja trainer classic" skin so we have the choice.
Change default character when I press and hold down a letter Nicht geplant2 Stimmen 4 Kommentare
So my problem is I'm using this keyboard with a language has special letters (á, é...). When I tap on a letter and keep my finger on it a little window will pop up above that letter with suggested characters. For example, if I hold down letter A it witt suggest these 2 characters : '@' and 'á'. The problem is I basivally want to use letter 'á' 98% of the time but the default first suggestion is the @ so it will take me another move with my finget zo reach the 'á' character. And this is super frustrating. If there is any option to switch these characters as default first suggestion it will be a big help.
why don't you let me switch off autopredict?0 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
as nice as autocorrection and autoprediction may be, at times, as annoying can it be at other times. if you are a creative writer, especially autopredict can be your worst enemy, especially if you are writing about a subject Swiftkey knows nothing about. Same if you write in, or experiment with, different writing styles. all this does, is the writer more dumb, and feeds more data in the big data machine.
Not allowing me to remove this annoying prediction bar is just more proof that data collection means everything and the user means nothing. All we gonna end up with are people too dumb to write a coherent sentence without the help of a machine and further down the inability to communicate at all without the crutch of technology.
I would like to request that with all your efforts to speed up the writing process and make everybody use the same old boring words in the sequence most recently collected by you, to allow the folks who still write word by word, by selection of their own personal choice, to do so without having to look and be disturbed constantly by an annoying prediction bar
PLEASE ALLOW MOVING ARROW KEYS TO TOP!!!1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
Hi! I've been trying for days to find out how to contact someone in support but all their email ever does is send an autoreply that says they'll get back to you... which, they never do. So much for that!!!
ANYWAY... I'm putting this here so that hopefully someone at SwiftKey Support will see this and get it to the right ears??
I love the fact that this keyboard allows for arrow keys BUT I HATE that they are at the BOTTOM of the keyboard! I am ALWAYS accidentally hitting them and moving my cursor around to places in my text where I don't want it to be!! I would LIKE to be able to MOVE the arrow key row to the TOP of the keyboard, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do this in the keyboard configuration.
Would the Developers PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE offer this feature?!?!? Having the arrow keys stuck at the bottom of the keyboard and always accidentally hitting them is REALLY frustrating me to the point of I'm about to UNINSTALL.... :(
