I know it has been fixed one year ago but the latest update made my keyboard far too big.
Here are screenshots of the different sizes: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dcavhvbj2it8byl/AABIrKlbKm9ZQfek39ZbmvXea?dl=0
Please fix this quickly :)

[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard Angeheftet Angesagt-4 Stimmen 17 Kommentare
Dear SwiftKey users,
We heard several times that some of you may run into an issue that annoys you very much: I selected SwiftKey as default input method, and it will randomly switch back to the stock (OEM) keyboard
Reason no.1 is the RAM cleaner killed SwiftKey. The solution is very easy: add SwiftKey into the white-list.
More importantly: it also could because some of the phones' OS has special RAM management and battery monitor to control the usage of each app. SwiftKey Keyboard for Android supports 5 languages at the same time, plus the Neural (AI learning) technology for predicting next words intelligently might need a bit more power from your phone. This could cause unwanted accidentally killing of SwiftKey
How to prevent it?
Well, different phones have different OS, even if they're all Android, but deeply customized. Here I list some of the phones which ran into this issue.
Samsung devices before Android Nougat update and some other close to stock android OS phones: System Settings > Battery (Power) > Battery Optimization > tap "not optimized" and select "all apps" > Find SwiftKey > Choose "Don't optimize".
Samsung device after Android Nougat (7.0+) update: System Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Oppo smartphones: Security Center > Battery > Enable Smart power-saving mode > Power-saving app control and management > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Xiaomi smartphones: Go to Security Tab -Permission-Auto-start management - Add auto-start apps, check SwiftKey.
Hope this little tutorial can help you. Let us know if you have any other tips or tricks to help others out

[ASK] Disable Fullscreen keyboard when landscape2 Stimmen 9 Kommentare
Hello, just the title said...
I have some questions,
How to disable fullscreen mode while my phone in landscape mode..
I asked the same question in SwiftKey feedback @playstore but no response yet..
I hope I can get the answers here..
One more thing, I just updated the app from playstore, and I get something (bug maybe) while I write this question, I just get something strange..
Everytime I write letter "i" the AI will convert to capital "I"
That's normal, but in my case the letter "i" is concatenated with "I" and I got "iI". That's strange..
And everytime I try to delete the "iI" to manually capitalize it, the capital "I" shows up from nowhere to the next of cursor location.
And it happened not only for the "i" letter but almost of all words that uses autocorrect function.
I hope you can understand what I mean.
Sorry for my bad English..

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!
Unwanted comma's1 Stimme 9 Kommentare
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.

Switching keyboards Beantwortet3 Stimmen 12 Kommentare
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*

Samsung DEX layout switching conflict0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I'm using swiftkey with my Galaxy S9 and recently started using DEX functionality - it's a Desktop EXperience from samsung, provides desktop layout with connected external display and keyboard/mouse. I'm using 2 languages: english and russian, and while the Swiftkey is active I can not switch languages neither with native Ctrl+Shift shortcut nor with samsungs shift+space, although I checked that in Swiftkey settings dual language is enabled for physical keyboard and there's a shortcut to switch between them.
As long as I switch to the native samsung keybord everything is ok, but it's pretty inconvenient to switch the keyboard before and after connecting external display

Landscape mode gibberish text0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Wonder if anyone can help, please.
I've been using SwiftKey for years and generally very happy, but whenever I use my phone in landscape mode (ie sideways) , then typing into Google search bar just produces absolute gibberish text - often a variation on the actual text, but reversed in letter order.
ie, if I type 'hello', then it appears on the search bar as olleh with occasionally added other letters at the beginning.
It works fine when phone is in portrait (ie up /down) mode.
Anyone got any ideas, please.
[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I know it's been requested in the past, but we really need a favorites emoji tab. The recent emojis only holds about 28, so I can barely hang onto the ones I use regularly, if I happen to use any others. Suddenly I have to search through the countless other emojis, just to find the one I want. I've taken to regularly reorganizing my recently used, in the annoying and tedious task of reusing them all at once so they stay at the top of my recent list.
Please, I love SwiftKey, and just badly want this feature. Not having it is driving me nuts

Japanese Hiragana Keyboard - language switch impossible1 Stimme 5 Kommentare
is it really not possible to switch keyboard languages when having japanese hiragana enabled? When I activate the Romaji style I can switch back to any other language I am using, eg English, by swiping on the space bar. However, the Hiragana style keyboard doesn't have a spacebar.. So I'm stuck with japanese. I must be missing something...
Fat fingers hit spacebar every time I type.0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I need a small space between the bottom char row and the space bar/punctuation keys. I tried making the keyboard bigger and it helps but it's too hard to get the top row now. Please allow this feature or alignment of the letters as that may even help if they were up top.
