    That I'm aware of, this is something each app has set up differently (such as Facebook vs Android Messages). There are certain text box parameters that tell SwiftKey, or even Gboard, when it should run in fullscreen landscape and when it shouldn't. I'll try to get some confirmation from the team on whether this is something we can or cannot override.

    Your English is perfectly understandable, but I do want to clarify something: you're having an issue with SwiftKey adding "I" or "i" to the beginning or end of your words, is that correct? Could you provide us with a screenshot of such words?

    Yeah. I second the whole fullscreen keyboard disabling thing. Isn't there a way SwiftKey keyboard can disable the trigger?

    Thumb Keyboard have the option to disable full screen typing. I don't know why SwiftKey can't do it. Full screen typing it's annoying.

    There is an Xposed Module that I created that enables you to use SwiftKey Keyboard as well as SwiftKey Keyboard Beta in landscape without the keyboard going full screen. You can download the module through Play Store. 

    NOTE - You need Xposed Framework for this app to work.

    So is it not possible to disable the fullscreen swift keyboard in landscape mode without rooting the phone?

    Hi,

    I have the same problem - in landscape mode Swiftkey opens this full screen writing window making impossible to see whatsapp!

    Anyone at SwiftKey cares about this and us, the users?

    As there is no root option for my device, I can't use the Xposed module.

    Microsoft, please fix this.

    This is not an app-specific issue. For example, Samsung keyboard does not go into full screen on Facebook Messenger in landscape mode. This is a SwiftKey bug. Claiming it's an app-specific issue is straight up lying.

    It is something the app developer can control: EditorInfo  |  Android Developers (also see: EditorInfo  |  Android Developers; the full screen keyboard is called "extracted text UI"). WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger don't set this, Google Chrome does it. It seems that other keyboards like the Samsung Keyboard or Gboard have a workaroung in their code for apps which don't use this flag despite showing a full screen keyboard is nonsense, e.g. in messengers.
