In the last few days, on my Android Sony Experia, the automatic adding of spaces after a punctuation mark, and deletion of spaces before a punctuation mark when you've used the central suggestion word has stopped! This is infuriating as it was a feature we've had for years.There seems to be no setting to turn it on or off. Is it a bug?

I have problems with the built-in search engine, Google and not Bing. There should be an option to choose the search engine that each one wants, before it was Bing and a moment for another step to Google.
SwiftKey Beta nav bar theming0 votes 0 comments
Nav bar had gone way too light with recent update. Very difficult to use, especially since I'm using a dark theme.
Key layout should be customizable0 votes 0 comments
I love swiftkey, I use it since it was an independent app and even paid for some themes; however it hasn't evolved as much as I think it should, for many years. The most annoying detail for me is the absence of angular quotations ("«" and "»") in the Spanish layout. These are the preferred quotation marks in Spanish writing, over "", which forces me to write incorrectly when on my phone. The thing is, even if this was added, it wouldn't be enough. I can think of tens of different key layout details that make my writing more uncomfortable or inefficient. Therefore, I wholeheartedly recommend you to allow users to design their own key layout with any unicode character they choose; you can get great community templates for free and we can get writing just as we like it.
Thank you for your time.
Bottom row keys got big0 votes 0 comments
The buttons next to the space key (symbol key, emoji, comma, period and enter) got really big all of a sudden and has totally offset the space button. I keep hitting the comma button now when I hit space. Rest of the keyboard has remained the correct size.

Tatar latin keyboard layout0 votes 0 comments
Many Tatar people use latin letters to type...
However there is no such thing in Swift Key.
There is only the oficial Cyrillic layout.
Is it possible that you add the Latin Tatar layout inserted below?
Or maybe there will be an app like Microsoft Layout Creator?
[Suggestion] Adjust the color of the navbar based on the theme. Planned0 votes 4 comments
I really love SwiftKey and would like to continue using it, but there I have a big problem! Whenever I have the keyboard open the navbar on man Huawei mate 20 pro is white, regardless of the theme on my SwiftKey. I usually like to use dark keyboards, which looks horrible with a white navbar below.
I have tried third party navbar apps to fix the problem, but they are usually really buggy. I know that Gboard (which I don't want to use but light have to) adjust the color of the navbar based on the color of the keyboard theme, so it should be possible to fix?

Theme0 votes 0 comments
I am using thieme Pitch.
In my android mobile I sometimes use the settings Inverted colors.
When I do that the theme colors are changed to white background and black text.
I would like to the colors to be unchanged - black backgorund and white text.
I use inverted colors because I have problem to read texts with white background and black text.
Advanced Setting: Key to Set Language for Google Voice Typing0 votes 0 comments
For users that switch between languages a lot with Google Voice Typing, there is a wide feeling that automatic language recognition doesn't work properly, as shown by these discussions:
- Android Central: SwiftKeys and Google Voice Recognition
- Stack Exchange: Disable Google Voice Typing Automatic Language Detection
For us, this makes Google Voice Typing unusable on Swiftkeys. We speak English, it types French or Spanish. We speak English, it types Spanish.
For this reason, many people are asking for a key on the keyboard to let us manually set the language. Because we change languages often, this needs to happen on the keyboard, not inside Google Voice Typing settings, which would not work anyway (every time we switch languages, we'd have to uninstall other languages).
This can be an Advanced Setting to "Add key to manually set input language". To be usable, this key should NOT give us a huge list of languages, but just our "favorite languages", which are the ones installed in Google Voice Typing.
Please note that the Google Voice Typing API allows the developer to do that:
- In Reverso, depending on the direction of the translation (e.g. English to Spanish), Google Voice Typing opens with the correct language pre-selected.
- There are some keyboards that use Google Voice Typing and let you set the language manually (one of several SpeechKeys).
I, for one, would be willing to pay for a keyboard that provided some advanced features to give us greater control.
[Duplicate] Swiftkey Keyboard has Off-Centered keys that are out of line1 vote 1 comment
As shown in the first picture below, the asdf keys are not in line and seem to be placed in a non-colinear manner and the same can be said about some of the keys in the bottom row. The "d" is lower than "a" and "s" but the "g" is higher than all three. I've been using SwiftKey for many years and am confused as to why this weird issue suddenly persists despite reinstalls and resets.
Predicted text0 votes 0 comments
When I have auto correct on, the middle prediction is almost always exactly what I've typed. Regardless of whether it is a real word or not. This is very frustrating as this is also the word that is inserted if I press space. I'm sure SwiftKey didn't used to behave like this.
It seems to me that the centre prediction should only be a dictionary word (including personal dictionary). I'm sure incorrect words used to appear on the left so they could be chosen (and added to the personal dictionary) if needed.
I have turned off auto prediction for this reason. But I miss being able to press space to insert the centre word (especially I) and being able to capitalise a word after I've started typing.
Has SwiftKey's behaviour changed? Or am I going mad?

Glitchy keyboard used with Spark email app1 vote 2 comments
I am experiencing very glitchy behaviour using the app with Spark. The response is slow, and the keyboard randomly switches from Swiftkey to the basic keyboard. I don't appear to be having this problem using Swiftkey with other apps. Any thoughts?
Disappearing symbols0 votes 0 comments

Keyboard is too low without navigation bar1 vote 0 comments
After the update to Samsung One Ui, there is the possibility of using gestures instead of the navigation bar. However by using that the swift key keyboard will go all the way to the bottom, which makes the keys hard to type, as they are further from the middle of the screen. I would like to ask for an optional padding on the bottom, to fulfill the space that once was reserved for the navigation bar. I keep missing some keys and it gets really uncomfortable over time because I have to place my fingers all the way down.

This is. me writing how. I. would. normally without going back and taking out all the full. stops. like. I. have to. all the time and it is. driving. me crazy to. the point I. can. no. longer use your software.
Please investigate and provide an update there are multiple users all having the same problem.

Locked with different language.Can't unlock now.0 votes 1 comment
I locked my Huawei P20 Pro with a password, consisting of Macedonian letters. Then I changed the keyboard from swiftkeyboard to google. And now I can't unlock the phone, because it requires entering the password in Macedonian. But I can't change the language unless I unlock the phone. So I got some kind of a vicious circle here. To enter my password, I have to change the language, and to change the language, I have to enter my password.
Please help all my 2000 pictures are inside, I don't want to make a hard reset and lose all my information.

Themes Issue0 votes 0 comments
I have recently performed factory reset of my phone (Huawei P9 Lite 2017) and I wanted to set up the SwiftKey custom theme.
Whenever I open the SwiftKey app to comfogure settings everything works just fine, but when I go to "Themes" it automatically closes the app and it doesn't allow me to open that section.
Any advice on how to resolve this issue?

Force Auto Predictions that aren't present in Left Prediciton Field1 vote 0 comments
Hello, I have searched this topic many times over the last 2 years (approx.) I am wondering if there is a way to make a list of sorts to force certain predictions that the keyboard does not prompt me to. For the simplest example, I would like the keyboard to know that instead of "=P" to replace it with the emoji of my choice. Or when every I typo the word "can" and instead put "cna" to know that every single time "cna" should be replaced with "can." With my second example, I have multiple times selected "can" which DOES appear in the left prediction field, but it still does not correct it to can. I do use the left field quite often to correct my miss-input or the keyboards miss-correction, but it doesn't feel like it ALWAYS replaces correctly based on my selection of the left prediction field.
The "best" example I have seen of this, is kids who have messed with their parents by making words like honey or sweetie be replaced with curse words every time they input them without using the prediction fields.....it just does it automatically every time. I've seen this done in memes and funny posts, but never found a way to do it. I don't need it for silly purposes but functional purposes.
Any Help on this topic would be much appreciated.

Backspace/deletion speed2 votes 0 comments
Is it possible to change the speed at which one backspaces to delete one or more characters or words? I do not want SwiftKey to delete whole words when I backspace, just delete characters at a constant rate of speed when I hold down the backspace key.
