Unwanted comma typo instead of spacebar0 votes 0 commentsHello, I just want to have an option to hide/disable the left comma character right next to the space bar because I hit it all the time when typing instead of the space bar and it messes up all the sentences. My readers are striving to understand what I'm typing. Please put an option to hide this left comma sign and use the right one instead.
Bug Report - Double spacing when spacebar is tapped0 votes 0 comments
After upgrading to One UI 2.0, I've been having this issue of "double spacing" when I tap on the spacebar. While typing, the space between words are double instead of single. When I switch over to the default Samsung keyboard, this doesn't happen.
I've tried clearing cache, re-installing and even installed the beta version but have yet to resolve the issue. Not sure if other users are facing the same bug. Hope someone has the solution. TIA.

Using Tap Strap with Swiftkey suggested words0 votes 1 comment
I am using a Tap keyboard and, overall it works very well. The one thing I can't find a solution to is selecting the suggested words. Tap state that there is no setting for this, however, I was wondering if Swiftkey might hold a solution.
I have noticed that when I am typing with the screen keyboard hidden (for physical keyboards) the suggested keywords have a superscript 1, 2, & 3 next to them running from left to right. I am assuming that these numbers relate to a shortcut to them. My question is, how do you access these shortcuts? It might be through a function that the Tap cannot replicate, but I would like to know so that I can see if I can work it into a solution.
If anyone else is using a Tap, I would be interested to know if you have found a solution to the suggested words issue. Tap support is useless.

How can I edit/remove menu bar2 votes 2 commentsI've recently updated the app and really dislike the new menu bar. I have zero need to use a language translator or bing. Or a big history of things I've copy and pasted before. It's annoying as I keep catching it when typing. Is there anyway to get rid of these functions? I'd rathe have emicons and gifs as we're there before. I'm on the verge of deleting the app and finding one that isn't full of useless functions.

Option to make the prediction bar taller0 votes 0 comments
Hi. I really like SwiftKey, I've been using it for 10 years. I like how it is design to optimize the writing speed in spite of human errors.
I'm going to report an issue that has been happening to me for years, and it's caused by human error, not by app design, but considering the concept of the app, I think this should be taken into account.
I write using the prediction bar, always, I only use the spacebar when I'm writing a new word that I don't want autocorrected. Very often while typing fast I press by mistake whatever is on the top of the prediction. It seems that the prediction bar is too short and it causes many different problems: If I'm writing in GMail, it moves the cursor to the end of the text (after the signature), if I'm on Google Sheets it makes me touch the symbols that are on the bottom of the screen, and in other apps it opens the sticker list.
I tried changing the size of the keyboard and it helps, but my problem is not with the size of the keys but with the size of the prediction bar. I would like to have an option to make the prediction bar taller without affecting the size of the keys. Another idea would be to add a small space on top of the keyboard. This could all be optional.
I also tried forcing myself to not tap so high, but after literally a decade of repeating the problem I'm contacting you for help.

Afrikaans accented characters visible on keyboard/theme0 votes 0 commentsSwiftKey, a very long post. Accented characters in Afrikaans I’m Afrikaans and I’ve loved SwiftKey since inception due to being able to see accented characters on the keyboard without long pressing a key to see what accented characters are hiding behind it. Then I had to reset my phone and lost the theme I had with the keys and accented characters visible on it. I wish I could upload a screenshot here to show you. But, on all the themes available in the app I can see the qwerty keys but, I see a “clean” keyboard without the accented characters on it. For example, I have to press on e to see what accented characters are hiding beneath it. Like, hoerskool which means prostitute school and then hoërskool which means high-school. Hoërskool means that it is the last year at school before you graduate to go to a university. Long post but I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to get a theme, keyboard with the accented characters visible on it. With love from a sulty hot Johannesburg South Africa 😊

Swiftkey recently started to change my text into junk when I'm correcting myself-1 votes 4 comments
All autocorrects turned off, wasn't happening few months before. Sample - write sentence "That would be". Put cursor after word "would", start deleting letter by letter. When there's only "That w be" remaining, text suddenly changes to "Thatul be". If I try to correct such cases (especially in longer sentences), usually I'm getting some other meaningless replacement, to the point where I'm unable to correct at all without rewriting everything from the end. That's insane.
Further in the sample, autocomplete options still show choices "wouldn't would would be". If I select "would", final sencence becomes "Thatuld be". Which looks like replacement indexes are getting corrupted, in addition to the autocorrect which had to not happen at all.

Ability to use censored gifs3 votes 1 comment
I realize that you want to try to keep everyone happy, but we should be able to use adult orientated gifs. As an adult, I am fully capable of knowing when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. A toggle that is turned off by default, but to allow us to turn them on would be great. Right now, I have to switch between keyboards to use them, which is obviously not the solution that I should have to use. Especially with such a great tool as this is :).

Volume output of your support videos0 votes 0 comments
Some of your support videos have very low PLAYBACK VOLUME for their soundtrack. Please update to make them a bit louder by playing them back on a device like this ANDROID PHONE. MAKE SURE THE VIDEO'S PLAYBACK CLEARLY, AND AND LOUD ENOUGH TO BE EASILY HEARD. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME AND ASSISTANCE IN FIXING THE LOW VOLUME PLAYBACK PROBLEM IN SOME OF YOUR INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS. NOTE! I LINKED A BLUETOOTH SOUNDBAR TO THIS PHONE SO I COULD HEAR THE LOW VOLUME IN SOME IF THE VIDEOS. THE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER DIDN'T HELP THE LOW VOLUME PROBLEM EITHER.
Voice feedback for selections.-1 votes 0 comments
Why doesn't the Swiftkey APP have a selection to give voice feedback to selections if wanted? if you WHEN I hit a button. For example; if I hit the button for Resize. Have a selectable voice say"RESIZE". If I hit the button for Themes. I Then a selectable voice would say:Themes. In the support dialog your APP would have the ability to read back what I wrote if needed plus noting OPTIONS SET/SELECTED. I'd like to be able to set up Swiftkey to tell me the setting selected, and the options I set per options set for level of verbosity. I have a vision impairment problem. That makes reading in some cases difficult to very difficult. There should be an option to set this in the SETTINGS, and an option to set LEVEL of VERBOSITY . IF YOU REPLY IS REQUESTED FOR THIS QUESTION TO Lightsttn1@AO.com
Adding stickers to collection0 votes 0 commentsI'm new to this so sorry if there is a really easy fix! I have been gifted some stickers which I'm trying to add to my collection. They show in my phone's camera roll (Google Pixel 2) but when I come to pin they aren't there. I've tried with both SwiftKey & Beta but still struggling. Am I missing an option to choose album/ location instead of just clicking on the camera icon? TIA! 😁

[ISSUE] Tapping bottom half of space bar inserts double space0 votes 0 comments
When I tap the bottom half of the space bar it inserts a double space, but tapping the top half inserts a single space. Also, this applies to the comma key. This is really annoying as it interrupts my typing and I can't find a way to turn this off or fix this.
I use the regular (non-beta) swiftkey app on Samsung Galaxy S10 with Android 10.

Removing auto suggest bar on the top of the keyboard. Not planned1 vote 1 comment
I have spent nearly 2 hours today trying to remove the auto suggest bar on the top side of the application.
All until now i have been using a different app but i have decided to switch in order to give this one a chance.
I like the various customization it provides, however, its not letting me complete the one final step for a perfect app, absurdly making the app unusable for me.
I do not want to see the auto suggestions on the upper side of the keyboard. (its disabled literally everywhere across the phone> auto correct / suggestions)
I like to type everything manually so it doesn't come to a confusion when i am sending a message.
I would like to see this being implemented/ or if there is a workaround other than disabling all the languages and having a big pop up that says please select a language.
SOLVED, as you solved a problem.0 votes 1 commentYou mark item's as SOLVED on my activities page on your Website, and I UT if you SOLVE one of my problems. Why don't I get a message referring to the SOLUTION? The only way I see something has happened is periodically check your site. In your message you should tell me the DERIVED SOLUTION, and add a little bit copy of my original message, so I can no what the SOLUTION IS FOR. This should be done each time you SOLVE a user's problem, as you don't presently do this.
