[Request] Permanent undocked split-view1 vote 0 comments
On my tablet my favorite keyboard layout is the split (thumb) view, combined with undocked mode. Thats simply perfect, because the space between the to key-halfes is free to see the real content.
The Problem is, that it always switches back to docked mode when i move it to near to the bottom.
Could we have a permanent undocked mode? Or at least make the empty space of the docked split-view transparent?

Voice button placement37 votes 67 comments
SwiftKey is the best. The only thing I wish I could change was the voice dictation button placement. On big phones it is hard to get to. Give me the option to place on right side if screen (like gboard).
Swiftkey suggests numbers Answered1 vote 3 comments
Hello, dear developers! The system of memorizing frequently entered words, which should offer the same words the next time, does not work correctly. Because it stores in the dictionary not only words but also numbers. I often work with a calculator, where I need to calculate a lot of numbers. And when I need to write a message to someone, among the suggested words shows the same numbers, instead of words. This creates inconvenience. And it seems to me that the volume of the dictionary is very limited and the numbers will replace the words in the base of the keyboard and fill with numbers. Please correct it. Translated by Google
Unwanted auto-correct, even when turned off0 votes 2 comments
If I type a word that starts with a capital letter, followed by another word that starts with a capital letter, SwiftKey uncapitalises the first word! I have auto-correct and auto-capitalise turned off, but it doesn't seem to make any difference!
It's incredibly annoying! How do I stop it from doing this?
How do I customize the layout of my buttons Answered1 vote 5 comments
I was wondering if there was anyway to switch the "," button with the "." button? Also is there a way I could change the default "." button to be a "?"
Flow to replace selected text - miscorrections4 votes 4 comments
I've run into a particularly annoying bug.
Let's say I have already:
One two three
And I select (highlight) three:
One two three
And then, with "three" still selected, I swipe the word "seven":
One two seven
The word is now correct but the word in the middle of the prediction panel is still "three". If I press space or type any other character it miscorrects "seven" back to "three":
One two three
This is particularly noticeable in Chrome. When I tap the URL bar while already on a page, whatever the current URL is will be pre-selected for me. So let's say I want to search for "happy cats". If I swipe "happy", I get "happy" but the middle suggestion is "I". So if I swipe or type "cats" next, it becomes: "I cats". In the past week I have run into this SO many times as it hijacks my attempts to Google in Chrome.
I keep missing the spacebar3 votes 4 comments
Since about two months ago, I keep missing the spacebar with my right thumb and hitting. The full stop key instead. <- producing odd-looking sentences like that.
It happens probably fifty times a day. That's a lot of back-spacing! It's so much that I started to wonder why SwiftKey doesn't collect and analyse telemetry on multiple backspacing to identify what errors are repeatedly occurring.
On my phone, the space and letter keys are a very slightly lighter grey than the keyboard background, but the function keys like enter, backspace, full stop are not differentiated. Theres about 0.5cm padding on the left of the full stop key before the spacebar. I think that's why I keep hitting it instead. Could this be fixed?
Thanks so much,

Estonian keyboard layout0 votes 1 comment
Would it be possible to change Estonian QWERTY layout and put the letter "ö" under a separate key? It's rather crucial while writing in Estonian to use the letter separately from the letter "o" under what it currently resides.
With best regards.
FR: Fix double space everywhere (after user mistake)0 votes 0 comments
I'd like SwiftKey to fix double spaces everywhere.
I often make those kind of mistakes and I like when it fixes some of the spacing, but sometimes I edit a word before punctuation and make an extra space by mistake - that's what I need fixed.
And generally, when it detects double space where one shouldn't be, it should fix it.
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout9 votes 15 comments
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
New emoji - fox Answered0 votes 1 comment
Hi guys, I know this may be silly, but whatsapp has just included the fox emoji a few weeks ago, which us awesome (I love foxes) it would be super cool if you guys had a fox emoji. Previously I would always type and the keyboard would predict my emoji, now however, because I use the fox in every text/message, I often go to the actual apps emoji selection instead of the SwiftKey emojis through predictions
Gesture input2 votes 1 comment
In the gesture input section there are only two options: flow and gestures. I don't want to use any of them since they cause me some problems while I'm typing on my Xperia c4 device. Please add "None" option for those like me. By the way, thank you for developing such fantastic app.

Using SwiftKey with a Pixel C physical keyboard0 votes 1 comment
I've used SwiftKey (and SwiftKey Neural) for a few years on several devices. Recently I got hold of a Pixel C and the accompanying physical keyboard, both of which are great.
However, I've noticed that the "..." button on the keyboard (which brings up symbols etc has no effect when the default keyboard is SwiftKey. That is with GBoard, touching "..." gives me access to all the extra keys and symbols. With Swiftkey it just acts as a Right-Alt key.
Is there a stetting anywhere in SwiftKey?
Is it something you're aware of and are working on?
Is it something you're aware of but can do nothing about due to Google having something locked down?
Any advice would be awesome, thanks. I have the beginnings of an idea in the back of my head to use IFTTT to switch to GBoard when the device sees the physical board, and back to SwiftKey when not...
Why do I get a pound sign instead of dollar Answered2 votes 18 comments
I have speech set to uk. But the keyboard setup is English Australia. So why don't I get a dollar on the keyboard. It's very frustrating to have to type in the word dollar every time. . I don't the stupid £ sign.

Hindi predictions on English keyboard, is devnagri necessary?0 votes 2 comments
So, recently my SwiftKey keyboard was updated. There is a devnagri script keyboard option as well as the QWERTY English that I usually use. I use a lot of Hinglish in my messages, sure, but I'm not so happy when the English keyboard simply changes the words into devnagri. If I need to I can simply shift over using the spacebar to the devnagri script keyboard. But for the script to hijack my English posts is incongruous, inconvenient, and honestly, frustrating, especially because perfectly acceptable English words are transcribed unnecessarily and SwiftKey becomes not so swift anymore. That's not fun when I have to write emails or text messages in a professional capacity.
What can I do to make this not happen anymore? Are there settings to switch the transcriptions off? Is that possible?
[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji3 votes 2 comments
Hey I had an idea for your keyboard.
A custom emoji tab where we can add a select number of our favorite emoji for quick selection. SwiftKey is the top of the crop and this feature would enhance our typing capabilities even more. Thanks!
New poster. I hope this is in the correct place. Mods please advise if necessary :)
Keyboard Disappearing Except for Predictions0 votes 1 comment
- LG V20
- Android 7.0 (Nougat)
- Swiftkey 18.104.22.168
Twice in the past day or so, Swiftkey has suddenly minimized to just the predictions, the keyboard presumably off the bottom of the screen.
One time, I reset the phone, and that restored it. I wouldn't be here posting, but just a few minutes ago it happened again. This time I disabled and re-enabled Swiftkey and that fixed it...but if this keeps happening, I obviously will not find it worth having to do that each time.
I don't know how to reproduce this, per se. When it happens, it is that way in all apps. Both times it was initially in the AT&T default texting app, but that's probably coincidence, because it's what I use most.
There's Unused Space in the Space1 vote 1 comment
The space key takes up the space of ➍ keys but has zero functions except, ugh, space and the language switch button which doesn't seem necessary nowadays when the keyboard works in English just fine (with predictions and all) even with a foreign language keyboard always on.
It's space not very well used, is it not? My proposal is that it would get a new look and new functionality: In lieu of one, we would get four buttons which all still do work as the space button but each of them would get their unique secondary functions. One's function — tongue switch. There rest is up to you. ✌
Feature Requests - User viewable dictionary19 votes 6 comments
I use SwiftKey for years now and I've got rid of most of the weird suggestions now, but it took extremely long and I had to remove lots of words every day for many years. And still I sometimes get suggestions like
"gaucho Hagan Hitchens Cecil Barco barstool Megan yap naval brouhaha..."
that nobody needs. And that after removing thousands of words from the dictionary.
I know that the dictionary must be somewhere in SwiftKey's app data, since it has to be saved offline somewhere. But normal users can't see/edit some binary file in a protected folder, so my suggestion is:
Please make the list of words that are currently in the dictionary available to edit in some form, maybe as a text file (although I doubt it could be opened with the RAM of a phone), maybe as a list with checkboxes to delete many entries at once, maybe in another form.

after the recent update , auto spacing prediction is not working, I have to manually press space button to get the next predicted word. which makes typing slow. and it is really embarrassing.
please bring back the old settings and my keypad freezing frequently.
