Huge typing problems in Facebook on Android1 vote 1 commentIn many cases, Swift has become impossible to use when entering or editing comments in Facebook. Typing straight-away works okay, but you sometimes can't delete a word without it getting confused, or insertion text (it inserts elsewhere). It seems it's losing track of the cursor position which causes odd behaviors. You can see that the suggested words get confused too (probably from the cursor problem.) I sometimes have to compose in another app and then paste. Very frustrating. I'm guessing that Facebook is doing some odd things that maybe trip-up SwiftKey. Needs to be fixed soon!
Punctuation keys next to Space2 votes 4 comments
There is one thing missing from this keyboard to make it perfect, in my opinion. Something LG keyboard has and is very useful: the ability to change the most used punctuation key(s) near the space bar. Right not there is a "," and a ".", the latter having a drop-down menu. I would like to be able to change them to what i use most. In LG, this is possible and you are even able to move their location (left or right).
Would you consider implementing this in the future, please?
Needless space before punctuation marks4 votes 9 comments
Hi! I'm using your keyboard for many years. And all this time I'm struggling one annoying issue. SK puts a needless space BEFORE colon, semicolon and quotation marks and puts no space after them. This happens in the Flow mode. Is there any way to fix it or get your really useful update?
Flow typing not working0 votes 1 comment
Flow typing has stopped working for me. Everything else seems to work though. Just no flow. I have uninstalled/reinstalled the app. Cleared cache. Restarted phone. Switched to Gestures and back. Talkback is not enabled. Not positive but it might have stopped working after recent android update.

Swiftkey has stopped working! Answered7 votes 6 commentsI've been using swiftkey for years now with no issues. As of this morning it has complete broken. I can still "type" with it. But: The top bar with predictions and autocorrect has gone completely blank. Spellcheck is nonexistant I cant delete in blocks anymore, I have to tap delete for every letter and it doesnt autospace after punctuation or auto captialize letters. Swipe text has completwly stopped working. And finally if i press the emoji button it just completely freezes my phone which is just fantastic! I really dont want to have to switch keyboard apps as i really like swiftkey when its working so any help is very much appreciated. I have restarted my phone, cleared my caches and reinstalled the app multiple times now with no success. Help!
Auto-correct changing valid words Answered-1 votes 3 commentsQuite often SwiftKey will change a valid word to another word incorrectly. I'll type "while" and it will change it to "whole", "if" to "of" and similar. It would be great to have a switch to the effect "Don't change valid words".
Remove the prediction bar option Not planned1 vote 4 comments
Hi! I have a lil' bit of a problem here... I've been using your app on and off for several years now (for some reason on my older phones it came preinstalled and without an option to uninstall it so i had to remove updates and disable in case of not using it).
It's a nice app but it lacks one very important option... the one where you can remove that freaking crappy suggestion bar that eats from my display when i type messages.. I've tried changing to my language but I never use it..
On the first screenshot is that useless bar with the autocorrect off and on the second it's the keyboard without a language selected (an even bigger mess).
I know that you guys want my/our data badly and try to scoop it little by little, but at least for those 0.1% of us that find it completely useless at least give us the option to BURN AND DESTROY the living hell of it... For the time being i'll go and try to find some other keyboard that hopefully has that option regardless of how unsafe it is but it would be nice to hear back from you guys.
Language data vanished Answered1 vote 1 comment
this night my german language dataset disappeared and the language selection list is empty. Now Swiftkey is useless. I restarted my phone. Still the same problem.

Hebrew Keyboard Answered0 votes 1 comment
Is there a shekel key on your Hebrew keyboard? I noticed there are some other money symbols, but I could not find the most important money symbol for a Hebrew keyboard.
If there is one on the keyboard, where do I look?
speech-to-text closing after one word 2nd time being used0 votes 1 commentwhen i use speech-to-text via long-pressing the comma button, it seems to work fine. if I leave the display up and hit the button again to say more, no matter how much I say it only outputs the first word, and it usually turns itself off after that one word. I think usually when this happens, if I hit the button again it works fine, then again will only be one word, and so on. this also happens if i: open speech to text say some stuff close speech to text open speech to text say some stuff this ^ is not an effective workaround, the bug still happens. i dont remember for sure if this happens if I close the keyboard and reopen it. I'll test that case and get videos soon. this has been happening for a long time, at least 6 months. I have a pixel 5 with updated Android. p.s. also planning to make a post soon about my cursor jumping around very frustratingly so lmk if anyone else has experienced that

Editing misspelled word causes cursor to jump to another spot Answered0 votes 4 comments
When using flow, if there's a error and I don't notice and use arrows to go back to the correction spot and start to type, the cursor suddenly jumps to the end and changes the last word I typed. This is a very new development and super annoying.

Turn off phonetic keyboard in urdu Answered1 vote 1 comment
Is is possible to just use the urdu keyboard and turn off new phonetic option. Phonetic keyboard stacks with English keyboard and changes some English words to urdu. Really annoying.
Is Urdu available separately from the English keyboard? Answered0 votes 5 commentsWhen SwiftKey first introduced Urdu as an input option, it was a standalone language with its own keyboard (albeit with the keys based on the same positions as QWERTY). In the years since, SwiftKey then combined it with the English keyboard. This is infuriating for me, as I generally don't interchange between both languages simultaneously. Is it possible to have Urdu separately from the English keyboard? Or is my only option to switch to another app?
Chechen Latin Keyboard Layout1 vote 1 comment
Hi all! Please add a latin layout of the Chechen language.
You can find a layout I made for UNIX systems in the link below. Me and our community could help you integrate it into SwiftKey, if necessary.

Keyboard crashes (with Slack) Answered0 votes 2 comments
I would like to report crashes ocurring on my phone.
This happens in apps, if you tap to some input, the keyboard just won't show up. Tapping elsewhere and focusing other input also does not work, same as closing the other app and reopening, when this happens, the keyboard just won't show up anywhere in the system. The only thing working is going to SwiftKey app info, force-stopping the app and then starting the keyboard from the app drawer.
For me, it happens a lot in Slack application. Right now, I don't recall other app crashing it, but that also means I cannot say if other app does it or not.

The cursor jumps backwards in my text from time to time Answered1 vote 4 comments
Often, when typing a post, the point of typing is mysteriously moved backwards in text by a few words or a couple of sentences and I'll find the last 3 - 5 words I've typed are showing up in the middle of some previous text for no apparent reason. It is very frustrating to have to go back and delete perfectly well-written text from the middle of another sentence and then retype that text. It is frustrating enough for me to have sought out this forum, and if no fix is explained to me very shortly, I will update my Play Store recommendation and uninstall your keyboard app.

SwiftKey too eager in splitting words in Dutch Answered1 vote 1 comment
I'm on Android with SwiftKey 188.8.131.52 with Dutch and English enabled. In a recent update in the last couple of months, SwiftKey has become quite destructive in splitting words in the smallest possible sensible components instead of the largest ones. This is annoying, because Dutch is a compounding language. That means we glue compounds or derivatives together, much like German, so we can have words like slaapkamerwekkerradio. SwiftKey doesn't like this. It especially seems to have an issue with words that have a preposition as a prefix/suffix. For instance it autocorrects "inspanning" as "in spanning", "vooraan" as "voor aan", "uitgeven" as "uit geven", and so on. This is only recently happening (somewhere this year), but it is quite annoying. I wish this could be remedied because I find that I have to correct SwiftKey much too often these days.
In landscape mode SwiftKey overlays input dialogs with its own white input box3 votes 6 comments
When in portrait mod , SwiftKey functions properly, but in landscape mode it overlays the input dialog with a blinding white input box that fills the entire top of the screen. It occurs with authentication dialogs, when entering an app review in Google Play store, etc. This is quite a shock to the eyes when working in dark mode.
The problem doesn't occur with Samsung keyboard.

Predictions should not move0 votes 1 commentWho else has that obnoxious problem where they type three letters and the prediction they want pops up, then they type another letter and that prediction randomly moves to another space, so when you muscle memory tap where it just was you get the wrong word? Like so many Microsoft applications there's always some irritating feature or gap in how it works that makes it frustrating to use for literally no reason-- this is a six second bug to fix and this is the eighth or ninth time I've reported it going back to when I first started using SwiftKey in 2013. Just. Fix. It.
请求适配安卓全键盘智能机型0 votes 2 comments特别喜欢使用微软这款输入法,但是本人目前在用的是unihertz titan pocket这款小众机型,发现这款输入法对实体全键盘的支持较弱,希望增强适配.主要从几个功能提出诉求: 1.目前不能空格选词上屏 2.希望增加alt+数字键选词上屏功能 3.希望增加自定义短语功能,意思就是让用户自行设置按两下单个按键输入固定标点或短语,比如连续按两下k,输入可以的这个常用词汇
Smart punctuation Beta issue Answered0 votes 1 commentI'm using the latest beta and I like the option to turn off Smart punctuation so is space is no longer added at the end after each punctuation. But this also removes the feature that deletes the space before the punctuation. Since autocorrect always adds a space after the word, it's annoying to have to delete that space every time I want to add punctuation. If this was by design, can the two items be separate options?
Not possible to remove prediction from database Answered2 votes 3 comments
Hi. I've installed both English and Norwegian languages. When I type the letter i gets changed into I. This is ok in English, but i is a very common word in Norwegian so I'd like to remove the entry i->I from the database and then remember to press shift+i when I type in English.
I've tried to longpress I and select remove entry, but it reappears every time. Any suggestion?
Adding Word to Dictionary Special Answered0 votes 1 commentYou cannot add a word that ends in an apostrophe. Often used in slang... like Goood Mornin' Also Wish there were an easier /faster way to add a word to the Dictionary other than backing up and selecting six times.
