Uper case on middle of the sentence Answered0 votes 1 commentHello. I use SwiftKey since the begging and i have this issue only since one week. When i use words (in french) like "sur" or "que" or "qui" etc in the middle of a sentence, the automatic correction put a capital on the begging of the word. It write "Sur" instead of "sur" or "Que" instead of "que" on the middle of the sentence. This behavior is very new. what can i do? Thank you

SwiftKey wants to replace "that" with "thst" Answered1 vote 3 comments
For some reason, SwiftKey will inexplicably (and it has done this for many years and versions) want to autocorrect "that" to "thst". It makes no sense, and I make sure to manually delete the suggestion every time. This happens maybe once per month? After I delete it, if I try to type "that" a few times, it will suggest "that" correctly. I have autocorrect enabled. I have Norwegian and English (UK) as languages. "Thst" is not a word in any vocabulary, or something that I will ever use. This random, buggy suggestion just seems to happen from time to time and I don't understand why.
It is not that I type "thst" by mistake - that might too happen - I type "that" correctly first time, and I see SwiftKey changing it to "thst". Very annoying!

Autocorrect won't correct certain words Answered0 votes 1 commentThere are a few typos I make constantly that autocorrect never fixes, even though I've repeatedly told SwiftKey to never predict the typos every again hundreds of times. I often type'cna' instead of 'can' and it is never auto corrected. There are others, but that's my big beef.

Voice to Text typing auto correct gone. Answered1 vote 6 commentsA few weeks ago, maybe a month, the voice to text feature for auto dictation changed. It used to have an autocorrect feature just like the SwiftKey one and it would also allow me to select sentences and predict what I meant to say by giving me different selections of the sentence when I tapped the underlined word. It was a wonderful feature. The voice command box was also white, which goes with the theme of my keyboard. Now it is nothing but a black box and when I try to go into the settings to turn this back on it doesn't do it anymore. I really miss the autocorrect features on The Voice to text. It was fantastic. How do I get it back?

Add events from calendar in SwiftKey keyboard Answered0 votes 1 commentWhy option "add events from calendar" in SwiftKey keyboard is missing now?
Wrong Ellipsis Writing in Indonesian. Answered1 vote 2 commentsIt's stated in our Ministry of Education and Culture Act No. 50 Years 2015, Chapter 3 Verses 1 Number 1: III.I.1. An ellipsis is used to indicate that a part of a sentence or quote has been omitted. For example: The causes of the decline ... will be investigated further. In the 1945 Constitution it is stated that the state language is .... ..., the fish is different. Note: (1) The ellipsis is preceded and followed by a space. (2) An ellipsis at the end of a sentence is followed by a period (four dots). The first note clearly stated, "The ellipsis is preceded by space" but SwiftKey forced me to remove the space before ellipsis. I have turned off all autocorrect features and changed the languange to Indonesian but it's still happening. I think this problem needs to be fixed as quickly as possible. I have failed my online test due to problem.

Problems with Swiftkey in Microsoft RDP client Answered0 votes 1 comment
I have an issue when Swiftkey is set as my default keyboard on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ when using Microsoft RDP client. I'm posting it here as a Swiftkey issue as it does not happen when the default Samsung keyboard is set as default.
When the Samsung physical keybaord is connected but Swiftkey is still set as the default keyboard, the backspace key does not work in Microsoft RDP client to host PCs. If I switch the default onscreen keyboard to Samsung, the backspace key on the physiocal keyboard starts working again in RDP. Clearly, even though I am using the Samsung physical keyboard, Swiftkey is involved somehow and blocks the backspace key from working. Any assistance appreciated.

Per language predictions and autocorrect? Answered0 votes 2 commentsHello, it has been four years since I asked about this capability. I expected it to me implemented so far. I want to use two languages, English and French without getting predictions of the opposite language. I am using latin for both French and English. I would like to get predictions only from French language when I write in French. Will this feature come soon? Will it come at all? Thank you in advance!
Pinned items on my clipboard not saved Answered0 votes 3 comments
After upgrading my device and updating SwiftKey I hoped this issue would be resolved, but I am experiencing it again. Not only are pinned clips disappearing, but occasionally the clipboard fails to save copied items at all, and I see random items saved for long periods of time. I'm using version 126.96.36.199 on Android 11. I'm unable to sort forum threads by date or activity, but I see this was previously an issue for several users. Is there a fix?
Problem with "dan" prediction in Spanish Answered0 votes 4 comments
I use Swiftkey on Android in both Spanish and English. It usually works well.
I have an issue with the word "dan". In Spanish, "dan" is the third person of the verb "dar" (i.e. "to give --> they give"). Every time I try to write it, Swiftkey suggests the change to "Dan", assuming I'm trying to write that name.
No matter how many times I try to add lowercase "dan" to the dictionary, it never works. And judging by the likes of this Twitter post, it seems I'm not the only one having this problem:

first symbol keyboard layout changed Answered0 votes 1 comment
i had to do a factory reset recently due to me losing an important app. this made my symbol keyboard layout look weird. i swear "?" and other symbols are not where they supposed to be, my muscle memory tells me the new layout is wrong. it also looks like it's missing a row or something? "(" and ")" were on the left side before. i'm really used to that layout, is there any way to get it back? maybe it was simply an update of sorts? or is it a theme issue? phone is huawei p smart 2019. i honestly don't know what to do at this point. please help.
No Navigation Keys on Phone Number Keyboard Answered0 votes 1 comment
When entering or editing phone numbers, SwiftKey opens an abbreviated keyboard with only digits and a few other keys (space, parentheses, some symbols, a backspace key, and an enter key), but there are no navigation keys (left and right arrows). These would be very useful when correcting numbers. Is there a way to add them? If not, please consider adding them in a future release.

Languages sorting is different in 2 mobiles. Answered0 votes 1 comment
I have 2 phones, both set 3 languages: Japanese, English, Chinese.
The first phone is hTC One m9, the language sort is: Japanese, English, Chinese.
The second phone is hTC U12 life, the language sort is: English, Chinese, Japanese.
When changing languages by swipe on space button, the sort is different on two phones. That makes me confused!
Is there sorting methods for us to set?
Autocomplete Suggesting No Space Between Period and Next Word Answered0 votes 5 commentsI have been having the most bizarre issue as of lately. For some reason,when I type a period or other punctuation marks (with automatic spacing on) and the first word of the next sentence, it likes to autocorrect it to the period and the first word combined (without a space).And just as example,the period and the And without a space in the beginning of this sentence was caused by Swiftkey autocompleting that for me.It is super annoying as you can see.Any misstyping that is causing spaces to disappear are complete not intentional. Can anyone help?
