Why Microsoft has been ignoring Chinese for years? I can see there topics created 4 years ago asking about Chinese? Will Microsoft plan to add it? Chinese is the first language by speakers, why does Microsoft keep ignoring all these requests?

Large empty space under the SwiftKey keyboard in portrait mode, and ample space around it in landscape mode. Answered1 vote 1 commentThere's a 3/4 inch blank space under the SwiftKey keyboard. The globe key / keyboard switch / keyboard settings isn't merged with the emoji button to the left of the spacebar. -Also even when SwiftKey is set as the main default keyboard, it keeps switching back to the iOS native keyboard. I ended up having to remove all other keyboards. -Does not back up / save / restore settings. I lost the all of my themes, settings, and usage data. I made sure it was synced backed up 3 times before I uninstalled the app. IPhone 11 Pro iOS 14.4.1
IOS Polish diacritical marks Answered2 votes 1 comment
In IOS version of the app when you long press letters polish diacritical marks (ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ź, ż) are on the very end of avalible symbols behind marks not used in polish language. Could you move then so they appear first (plus maybe remove non polish ones)?
Misspelled words not underlined Answered0 votes 1 comment
I've noticed that when I compose text on my iPhone or iPad, misspelled words are only underlined if I'm using the native iOS keyboard. There is no underlining if I'm using SwiftKey.
Can someone please comment on this behavior and if there is a way to change it?

Apple Pencil auxiliary keyboard does not display. Answered0 votes 1 comment
When I tap for the Apple Pencil auxiliary keyboard in ANY app it does not always display. All that I get more often than not is the shaded bar that allows me to move the position of the board. Shutting down and restarting the app/ device does not fix it. It just seems to be luck when it appears.

Autopunctuation Answered0 votes 1 commentIs there a way of disabling the auto punctuation feature in Swiftkey on the iPhone? I would like to place the punctuation myself rather than for the application to place a full stop whenever I pause. Because of this auto punctuation feature the voice to text although very accurate becomes unusable as it places automatic full stops when one makes a slight pause. I can see this question has been asked many months before but no response yet. Kindly assist

Please give iOS users a few more keyboard click sounds and volume controls. Answered0 votes 1 comment
Please allow a few more optional click sounds for iOS Swiftkey? A computer keyboard press sound would be awesome. Also volume controls for the click sounds? Some of us have hearing handicaps and would appreciate the extra help to hear the keyboard clicks.
Swipe left to delete Answered1 vote 1 comment
Something tells me that this question has been already asked before on that forum. I just could not find the right thread. I've just moved from Android to iOS with the iPhone 12, installed my favorite keyboard - SwiftKey.
One thing that I'm missing a lot is the functionality of deleting a word by swiping left to right on the keyboard. Something that I've used "a lot" on Android. Is there a way to enable it on the iOS version?
SwiftKey accessing passwords and other clipboard data Answered0 votes 1 comment
I noticed a couple notifications in iOS 14 about SwiftKey accessing my clipboard that I can't comprehend. It appears to happen sometimes after beginning to edit a textfield in a 3rd party app but also apparently randomly while browsing 3rd party apps.
I find this especially concerning when it happens after copying a password in a password manager. But also in other contexts it should be comprehensible ofc.
Why does this happen? How can I turn this off???

I can’t use SwiftKey Answered0 votes 1 commentI’ve been using this app for the past two years with no issues. However, earlier today the keyboard just stopped working. I can now only use the default. I updated my phone, reset it three times, and even uninstalled and reinstalled the app. It still won’t work.
Decimal pad not respecting regional setting for comma/dot1 vote 1 comment
For the iOS version 2.8.2 of Swiftkey, it seems that the numeric keypad dot not respect the comma/dot regonal setting of the iOS device, and always shows the dot, even if the language/regional setting of the iOS device specifies a comma as decimal separator. I can long hold the dot to get the comma, but I would like the same option as on the native IOS, that the regional setting defines what the first option is.

Punctuation key0 votes 1 comment
I have swiftkey version 2.7.8 on iPhone (ios 13.5) and ipad (ipados 13.5).
On iPhone the layout features a multipurpose punctuation key to the right of the space bar, which I find very useful. On the ipad this position is given to a second key to switch to numeric keyboard, which I do not need. How can I get the multipurpose punctuation key on ipad?

Flow doesn't work on my iPad mini0 votes 1 comment
I've installed SwiftKey and given it full access on my iPad mini 5th generation. But flow won't work.
I've checked every step of the installation instructions and even some things that aren't mentioned. I've compared the installation on the iPad with the installation on my iPhone, where flow does work. I've found no clues at all.
It's an iPad mini 5th generation running IOS 13.13.1 (current version).
Anyone got ideas?
Support for german language and layout1 vote 1 comment
I realy like SwiftKey.
It is one of the best.
I am not always typing in english somewhere on the internet, i also write texts. In german.
And for german. SwiftKey right out sucks.
It is the worst thing i ever saw.
1) It has not german layout at all.
Your popover selection window is ... horrible ... compared to real keys.
Let me show:
This is from the Apple keyboard.
But your's simply refuses to offer the proper keys!
Can you please finally fix this?
2) As a crude workaround, you offer some horribly popover menu
Now, this can only be a workaround, it is not usable for someone writing in german!
But anyway, this thing is wrongly configured for German!
If you hover over an "a" you get the pop-up, but the next key up is again the "a"!
The "ä" which you are searching for is far to the right, you need to search it in a long list.
The fix is easy: Just set the "ä" as the first character shown above your finger, when you long press!
Cannot understand why this is still not fixed.
But please don't forget: The popover is only a workaround. We still need a proper german layout as shown above!
Just came from Swype and Swiftkey is absolute trash-1 votes 1 comment
I recently moved to Swiftkey from Swype because I just found out the devs have killed it off. Unfortunately the transition has been anything but smooth.
Random gibberish: if I'm in the middle of swiping a word and (god forbid) I happen to swipe the tiniest amount over the spacebar it will split whatever I'm swiping into two parts of random letters that aren't even English (or part of the intended word).
Prediction: is absolute garbage. I literally had to swipe over a word, slowly going over each individual letter before it even got close to my intended word
I swear this app used to better when I tried it years ago. What the hell happened? Am I doing something wrong or does it just now?
External Keyboard want to show only word predictions0 votes 1 comment
I am using an external keyboard and want to hide the Swiftkey keyboard, but show the word prediction bar. Doesn’t sound like much, but on the bar you can see the ios text replacements you have entered. While showing the keyboard, I can type a short combination of letters and/or numbers, which ios translates to a whole paragraph. I use this quite often filling in templates and sending emails, but it is annoying to see this huge keyboard that takes up a large portion of the screen.
Using spacebar to insert autocorrect word on iOS1 vote 1 comment
On my Android phone, I had the option to use spacebar to insert the autocorrected word, rather than tap the word. Now that I have switched to Iphone, that option doesn't appear to be available any more. Can someone help me out on this, as it greatly reduces typing speed.
iMessage switching to emoji keyboard (iOS)0 votes 1 comment
iPhone 6S, 13.1.3, latest SwitfKey.
Running iMessage, if I lock phone (not power down, just sleep) and then unlock the phone (or receive a message) the keyboard will default to the emoji page of the Apple keyboard. It's been doing this since iOS 13 arrived. Very frustrating to have to switch back to Swiftkey so frequently.
A search for anyone else with this problem only turned up one question on Reddit with no replies.
Any ideas or fixes for this?
