change emoji gender Answered-1 votes 22 comments
Okay how do i explain it. So, some of the emojis on my swiftkey keyboard are only male or female. For example ( 🤷) how do i pick the male one?
fyi i can see the male one when someone else is typing it.
Also, there's an option on gboard to pick it. I just don't like the keyboard. I prefer SwiftKey.

[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Answered105 votes 107 comments
I like the flow and I like gestures. Gestures have an option to delete by swiping to the left ⬅, and to hide keyboard by sweeping down ⬇, but I'd like to see a feature where we could move pointer, just by sliding our finger on the keyboard.
Can't downgrade to older version via APK. To remove Bing search bar. Answered0 votes 4 comments
Really not liking this new Bing search bar. I removed the app and downloaded an older apk from apk mirror. Just one or two .https://pnrstatus.vip/ versions behind. None of them will install however. When i hit the apk it says installing for a bit then it says "APK not installed". Only the current version will install on my galaxy Note 8 running android 8.0. Tried https://sarkariresult.onl/ multiple reboots, clearing cache and data for the app as well as clearing cache of the phone itself. Have they prevented downgrades somehow ? Any ideas how to remedy?Mobdro
Numbers Panel Answered0 votes 2 comments
In one of the old versions of Swiftkey the numbers panel showed numbers vertically (i.e. the way you see on a calculator) but now the numbers panel shows it as a row. I already have a row of numbers in my text panel, I usually switch to numbers panel when I want to enter big numbers (like credit card number) and it feels natural to use a calculator type layout to enter
can you please bring it back?
Voice to text not working properly Answered3 votes 8 comments
I'm running andriod 10 on a Pixel 3 and voice to text has become more and more erratic. It's always had seemingly random capitalization and now, as of the past few days, random punctuation. Getting to the point of being unusable? Anyone experiencing these problems?
Switching between Languages Answered7 votes 30 comments
Is there any shortcut to Switch Between Languages? Every time I have to go to settings to select required Language. Very Lengthy Process.
keyboard letter change Answered-1 votes 3 comments
I have been using swiftkey for awhile and the other day while using it to swype the letters randomly changed. The "W" and the "Z" switched places on the keyboard. I can not figure out how to get this changed back. This happened once before and I had to delete it and re-install.
Bug OnePlus 6 Android 10 Answered0 votes 2 commentsHi all, Since updating to Android 10, a little gray area of about half a cm appeared under my keyboard. I'm using my Op6 with the gesture control, others control options don't have this problem. It has totally messed up my typing abilities, because every key is moved slightly up. Wondering if this could be fixed. Thanks :)
Question mark Answered2 votes 2 comments
Suggestion. I am on Android not sure if all versions are the same or not.
But i like to use the question mark a bit and unfortunately your long press (on the period/dot) highlights the period first, which is a bit counter productive.
Can you pretty please make the question mark the first option when the long press menu comes up. Or better yet move it to a single option long press maybe.?
Best keyboard out there otherwise, thanks very much.

Onde foi parar a tecla Ç? Answered8 votes 11 comments
O teclado omitiu a tecla Ç, e deveria estar presente no teclado para o padrão de escrita brasileiro ABNT.
Where did the Ç key go?
The keyboard omitted the Ç key, and should be present on the keyboard for the Brazilian ABNT writing pattern.
Always show accented keys Answered0 votes 2 comments
Is it possible to set swiftkey to always show keys with accented characters? E.g. in a separate line, like in xperia keyboard, which is now unfortunately dropped by Sony in favour of swiftkey. If swiftkey doesn't know this setting, I have to search for something else.
Question about email domain fill list Answered2 votes 3 comments
when entering an email address with Swiftkey, there's the key with the @-sign to the right of the space bar. When doing a long press, it offers a list of domain names (for me "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com" and "@gmail.com") for quick fill. Is there any way to edit this list? I would love to add a few entries to this list.
[Main thread] GIF inserts as URL Answered0 votes 64 comments
When I attempt to insert a GIF in a text message from the SwiftKey keyboard, it only inserts a URL to the GIF, not the GIF. This started happening after the latest big update (couple days now).

Turn off auto - cursor move Answered12 votes 13 comments
The feature that I find the most annoying, and would like the option to turn off, is the auto move of the cursor to the end of the word. When I want to insert/correct a character, I press on the location within the word, and the cursor moves to the end of the word! I have all the arrow keys displayed at the bottom of the keyboard, so pressing on the location & adjusting with the arrow keys is super fast. Except the cursor jumps to the end of the word! I think this feature was added a couple of years ago. It still gets in the way. I haven't found a fast workaround, so an option to turn it off would be much appreciated.
Strikethrough font Answered0 votes 2 comments
Hello, I was wondering if SwiftKey has a keyboard that is strictly a strike-through English alphabet, as in swiping the space bar gives a full swiping qwerty keyboard. I haven't had much luck searching for keyboards with this feature but SwiftKey is so comprehensive I thought I may not be looking in the right place. Thanks in advance!
How can I disable multilingual predictions? Answered24 votes 43 comments
How can I disable the multilingual prediction feature (bug).
It is unwanted, uncalled fore, unnecessary, useless, counterproductive, counter-intuitive, and annoying.
Otherwise your app is awesome, until the next update (which hopefully will get rid of this feature) I will be switching to another keyboard, which is a shame.
Cannot backup/migrate clipboard? Answered1 vote 3 comments
I've got a new phone and used the cloud backup feature to migrate Swiftkey to the new phone.
My stats have been copied over, but not my preferences, including the clipboard shortcuts.
Is there any way to fix this?
I'm moving from Android 7 to 8, using Google for the backup storage.

Why does a space appear before a semicolon?
Add to dictionary Answered1 vote 11 comments
Whenever I type a word that is not in my dictionary, the app shows me others forms of the word that I might want to add to the dictionary. I just want that list to stop popping on my screen. But I want the auto corrector to be in function. Is this possible?
How can I disable incognito theme? Answered8 votes 10 comments
I am not liking this new theme and how it automatically takes over my custom theme. I've been a big fan of SwiftKey, but this will force me to change keyboards. I absolutely do not like the layout change that happens. Please give an option to change.
Custom Keyboard Layout Answered2 votes 5 comments
I switched over to SwiftKey since I could see my text boxes but I'm not use to the current layout of the keyboard. I prefer to have my symbols on the left and my numbers visible without tapping on their own tab. And I like to have my emoji tab right next to my space bar on the left and not have to hold down on enter/send to get them. And way to change that sorta thing on here?
