[Duplicate] Questions about the new flow2 votes 1 comment
I am using Swiftkey 126.96.36.199 on a Samsung S7 running Android 7.0.
First, I would like to say that I think that moving the focus to corrections instead of predictions was a mistake. I miss predictions, but I have been using the new version and trying to adapt, despite not really liking it. I have some questions.
1. How do i capitalize the next word? I'm flowing and my last flow was correct, and now I wish to capitalize the next word (say, a proper noun). If I hit shift, it capitalizes the last word. If I just tap or flow, then it's not capitalized. Example: "Yesterday I visited the State House."
2. Hitting spacebar after a *correct* flow inserts two spaces. How do I stop this? Autocorrect is set to off.
3. Punctuation is slightly messed up as well. If I insert punctuation (: ; / - + etc) after a *correct* flow, it auto-adds a space in between. It makes using colon, semi-colon, etc very awkward. It's there a way to fix this? e.g. "To whom it may concern:"
[Duplicate] Triple of the same text when using speech to text Answered1 vote 3 comments
I almost always use the little microphone key to speak the text of my email and text messages, but for the past few days SwiftKey triples what I spoke in ALMOST identical text, with 3 slightly different versions of what I said. This is happening on both my Nexus 6P with Android 7.1.1 and my Samsung Galaxy Tab S with 6.0.1.
I even tried disabling the GBoard app, but no luck.

I am a Neural Alpha user on my Android, and I see that it's no longer being supported. I'd like to know if all of my keystroke data will be transferred automatically to SwiftKey if I install it?

[Duplicate] Problem with automatic suggestion for the next word Answered3 votes 2 comments
I'm a beta tester.
You've recently made a change that that reduced the typing efficiency. In the past ,while typing a word, it automatically predicted the next word and entered an automatic space. In order to change the current word, i had to hit the backspace. Now, the keyboard gives me automatic suggestions for the current word and I have to hit the spacebar to get the next suggestion. BTW, it also puts automatically 2 spaces between the words. In addition, It makes the automatic quick period functionality redundant.
Adding predictions Answered4 votes 16 comments
Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.
Make it easy for me to add.
One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.
Swiftkey Lags with Microsoft Outlook App1 vote 7 comments
with the microsoft outlook Android app
Swiftkey (happens with both the normal and beta versions) starts lagging horribly. i.e., you need to wait a really long time (a few seconds) for any key to appear on the screen. scrolling is slow and everything is slow. it feels like the phone has locked up. everything is back to normal once I kill outlook. It's fine with the stock samsung keyboard btw.
I'm running this on a samsung S7 with android 6.0.1. stock firmware supplied by my carrier. firmware version is g935Fxxu1cpl1 baseband version is g935fxxu1cpl2

[FR] Don't remove preceding space when inserting an underscore (_) Answered8 votes 7 comments
Is it possible to have SwiftKey *not* remove the preceding space when an underscore is being inserted?
This issue (along with a few others) was raised as far as December 2014. Unfortunately, it hasn't received attention from the developers.
It's rather frustrating having to go back through typed text to correct things from
"It_should_ be fixed immediately" to "it _should_ be fixed immediately".
Ordinarily it wouldn't be a problem if you could simply backspace and correct it. However, fixing this 'typo' requires a careful placement of the caret (which isn't at all easy) then inserting a space and then moving to the end of the line to continue with the text.
This slows text input especially when writing formatted text on WhatsApp and Telegram, both of which use the underscore for formatting.
[Feature Request] Option to turn off flow through space Answered4 votes 3 comments
Much as some individuals may find the 'flow through space' feature useful, I find it is often an encumbrance.
When flowing words, especially those on the bottom row, any accidental overshoot downwards automatically inserts a space, forcing a correction. Is it possible to include a toggle to disable this feature?

Thumb layout on landscape vs portrait Completed0 votes 14 comments
Thumb layout for portrait view and regular on portrait view is what I prefer and works on regular but not beta. When I switch to portrait with thumb layout set on landscape it switches the layout of portrait and this sux. I love thumb layout in landscape and normal layout on portrait. On regular SwiftKey app this setting works fine but not properly on beta. Please fix this asap. New bug - Keyboard response is slower to type and the keyboard popup when tapping a entry field. Sometimes it does not pull up at all when tapping an entry field in certain apps as well.

SwiftKey has become a nightmare4 votes 18 comments
I've been using SwiftKey for years now, and it has become more and more painful, to the point that I'm a meme to my friends now due to the way I type if I don't read twice before sending.
First, it looks like SwiftKey went from correcting my typos to considering that my typos are the way words are supposed to be written. So it corrects the right words into wrong.
Second, the French corrector is pretty broken to begin with, there are even tenses it don't know. So I have to manually rewrite verbs, even if I had them right the first time, because SwiftKey mess with it.
Last of all, since I switched to a new A5 2016 recently, the keyboard sometimes erases one to two words while I'm typing, for no reason.
I also have the "SwiftKey closing while I'm typing" problem I saw elsewhere, happens on Textra and Facebook Messenger.
I use the last beta of the app, with swift off because it made the keyboard even more laggy and unpredictable.
I wanted to change app, but yours is the best in terms of customization and key placement.
As you could have guessed I'm French. Strangely enough (?) I had absolutely no issue typing this message. Is French the problem? Or the way your app learnt me? Both?

[Feature Request] Free resize for width2 votes 4 comments
I would like to request a free resize option for SwiftKey's width. There are enough height options to suit almost any taste, but the only available options for width are full, thumb and compact.
This would be most useful in undocked mode on phablets in landscape mode and tablets. Still I think the option would be good in docked mode as well. Some phablets are sized such that "full" width is uncomfortable for one finger typing, but "compact" is cramped. It would also help on Galaxy S7 Edge portrait mode, where "full" size extends keys into the curved "edge screen" area, where it's too easy to hit them accidentally.
I think a good way to implement this would be a 4th option under layout, "custom". Selecting it would bring up draggable resize bars around the keyboard and an accept button.
[Feature Request] Turn off all gestures2 votes 2 comments
I would like to see the option to turn off all "gestures" from SwiftKey
Lütfen Android SwiftKey için hareket girişi kısmına "Hiçbiri" seçeneğini getirin. Çünkü Flow ya da hareketler ikisini de kullanmak istemeyenler için bu seçenek çok faydalı olacaktır. Ve hareketler seçeneğini seçtiğimiz zaman hızlı yazarken maalesef yazdığımız kelimeyi ister istemez siliyor. Buna bir çözüm bulabilmek açısından hiçbiri seçeneği harika olacaktır.
SwiftKey shutting down while tweeting Answered0 votes 3 comments
Well, when I try to write a tweet (specifically opening the compose tweet window on Twitter) the keyboard appears and one second later disappears, it tooks like 30-45 seconds to reappear with the "Loading predictions" message and after a while it works normally, so it makes me think that Twitter somehow force closes the keyboard but the force closing notification never shows up.
So, what do you think? It's a Twitter app related problem? SwiftKey is reacting bad to Twitter? Or is something else?
Btw I'm running 6.0 stock on my Moto X Force.

[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian7 votes 10 comments
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.

Extra keyboard characters don't line up0 votes 1 comment
When I bring up the extra characters with a long press, I cannot choose individual characters from the popup unless I press on a completely different part of the screen, and I never which part of the screen will activate the characters I want, because it changes randomly.
It worked fine until the last upgrade.
Improved Flow (swipe) feature in SwiftKey for Android-75 votes 381 comments
We are rolling out a new Flow experience for SwiftKey for Android. The idea of this change is that when Flowing (aka "swipe" gesture typing), we want to provide you with more choices to insert the word you wanted.
How this new Flow feature will work:
You Flow a word. Instead of the prediction getting automatically inserted you will be shown three possible candidates. You can then take one of the following 3 actions:
- Select one of the three predictions by selecting the word. This will insert the word and give you a space
- Continue Flowing your next word - this will insert the middle prediction and auto add a space for you
- Start tap typing. This will also insert the middle prediction and also auto add a space for you.
Basically this is ensure that if the wrong word is predicted, you can easily change it by tapping one of the three predictions. But if it is correct, you can keep on Flowing or tapping just as before and it will use that middle prediction.
Let us know your thoughts on this new change in the comments below.
Ryan, SwiftKey Community Manager
