"awkward" back with newest Android gestures when keyboard is up Answered0 votes 4 commentsSo, recently I have bought the new galaxy S20 and with it I have started to use the newest gestures. Everything is beautiful until the moment when I type something in keyboard and want to go "back" immediately without going touching above the keyboard to swipe from the side and then going back, because well the reachability in the area where there is keyboard is the best... The idea is that with the new gestures I can't go back when swiping from the side on the keyboard, it has to be done over it and I'd using whatsapp it may activate response mode on one of the previous messages... Other work around is adding "bring keyboard down" button which just ads bulk to the keyboard and I dont want it.. My sulution is that it would be veeeery nice to have a gesture tu pull down from the top of the keyboard to swipe down thus hiding the key board. Let's say from the middle of all 3 word suggestion "boxes"

Bug: predictions stop working in Chrome constantly, requiring booting Answered-1 votes 1 comment
Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Android 10 with One UI 2.5
On the inside screen ("tablet" screen of the this foldable phone) the Swiftkey prediction stops working after a few uses: predictions show up properly above the keys but selecting a prediction actually doesn't fix the written erronuous text but only adds a space after the incorrectly typed text. This is clearly a bug.
It always works for one use after a boot, but soon stops working again. So I reboot a lot.
This only happens in Chrome, in the address bar and in any text fields of forms. Restarting the app (force close from settings/apps) and then restarting it from app list does not fix it, only a reboot does. It's problematic that it happens in Chrome because that is the app where I type the most. I cannot change from Chrome since it is forced to be used in our company (a multinational industrial giant) on Windows and I wish to sync the browser with my private Chrome user id on that computer.
I have no experience if prediction works properly on the front screen as I never type on it (it is too narrow to type with adult hands).
The phone has been in use for only two weeks. Removing Switfkey settings (cache + saved data) and the app and reinstallation do not fix the problem.
It is very very annoying, almost enough to stop using Swiftkey and go to the Samsung keyboard. But I'd hate to do that since I've used Swiftkey for a lot of years and it knows my writing very well know. It is great, the rare times it happens to work.
I would make a bug report but cannot find where.The app does not have a feedback option anywhere.

Microsoft Translate doesn't auto translate If we copy the message twice Answered0 votes 3 comments
I am using microsoft translator with WhatsApp.
It is working smooth when I was writing my message and It is simultaneously translating my messages. Then I just send it.
Furthermore, when I select the incoming message and press copy button while Microsoft Translator already selected from the keyboard shortcut, It is directly translating the incoming message. This is superb, however, when I copy it twice, It is not translating the message, only copy the message to clipboard. If I select different message and press copy again, It is translating automatically. And If I select it again, It is not translating the same message anymore.
I think there is a bug at the usage of translator. Is there any way to fix it or any solution, your kind reply would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
How to make number row match the rest of the keyboard?0 votes 2 commentsMy phone theme has been black on black on black on black with a beautiful accent of color of more black since my very first smartphone. Why is there seemingly no control over the color of the number row on this otherwise amazing keyboard? I just upgraded my phone and am trying to go back to using SwiftKey after the last 18 months on my note 9 using gboard because their number row matches. SwiftKey is better there's no doubt about that but this dang gray bar in the middle of my screen makes it unbearable. So much customization except this one simple spot.

Swiping left to delete works poorly Answered0 votes 3 commentsHello, SwiftKey keyboard in normal gesture mode allows to delete words with swiping to the left. This works on poco X3 only in approx. 20 percent of the cases as it always needs several tries. My assumption is that it has to do with the display sensivity. It's the same issue on a second poco X3 which I have as well. Regards

Make possible manual additions to autocorrect1 vote 1 comment
This is a feature request for making possible manual additions to the autocorrect. Regularly, words that i would like to be auto-corrected, are not. I cannot find a setting where i can add those words, together with the word to which i'd like the erroneous word to be autocorrected. This is a common function in desktop text applications.

Backspace doesn't work in GitHub Codespaces, GBoard works better Answered0 votes 1 commentGitHub Codespaces uses the Monaco Editor so anything that uses that is affected by this: Azure DevOps, Azure App Service Editor, and many many more sites. Easy repro steps: 1. Go here: https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor 2. Type something in one of the examples and then hit backspace a few times You expect backspace to remove the characters but instead it does nothing. I hope this can be fixed so I can use GitHub Codespaces on my phone!
Korean input error using Bluetooth Keyboard Answered0 votes 1 comment
Device: Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
OS: Android 10 (Latest update)
SwiftKey: Latest update
Physical Keyboard: Logitech K850
There is an issue when typing keyboard on the smartphone using bluetooth keyboard.
In Korean keyboard, we use Shift key to enter 'Double consonant'.
QWERTY keyboard 'W' represents Korean consonant 'ㅈ'.
Then Shift+W enters 'ㅉ'.
QWERTY 'J' represents Korean vowel 'ㅓ', but Shift+J still should be 'ㅓ'
because there is nothing like 'double vowel.'
In Swiftkey with Korean input, Shift + J('ㅓ') temporarily changes to English input mode and enters English capital 'J' which I didn't want to.
I hope you could correct this error so that Shift + (Korean vowel) still enters (Korean vowel) instead of English capital letter.
In Korean input method, Shift + (Vowel) means nothing but just typing (Vowel),
but it is very easy to mistakenly enter Shift + (Vowel)
Voice Typing0 votes 4 commentsBack story. For many months I've been using 2 keyboards, gboard for voice typing and SwiftKey for regular typing. I decided to hit the microphone and try using SwiftKey voice to text and it was just like that of gboard! I was ecstatic and then today, all of a sudden it reverted back to the old voice typing with the white box.. Why!? I was so happy with the black box that would type as I was speaking making my life so much easier. I really don't wanna go back to using 2 keyboards, please bring back the voice to text that was just like gboard. It was like having the best of both worlds! SwiftKey blows gboard out of the water but when it comes to voice to text gboard is still better. At least let me have the option to choose which voice to text I wanna use. Please! Example, when I'm in my car I could unlock my phone to my messenger and the voice dictation would automatically start, amazing! I need this back. It was truly amazing but too short lived.

swiftket voice input button stays on voice input -----1 vote 3 comments
when you use voice to text button now on swiftkey it brings up voice inout , close out messages and go back in and there is no keyboard it defaults back to voice inout automatically.
then you have to hit the keyboard button at the bottom and change back to swiftkey keybord
it used to be you press the button say your message and send it , then next time your in a message it would default back to swiftkey. keyboard to type.
but now when you hit the microphone icon it stays on all the time for all messages.

端末の縦/横で異なるキーレイアウトを選択可能にしてほしい Answered0 votes 3 comments日本語におけるスマートフォンによるキー入力は、大半が片手によるフリック(テンキー)入力で行われています。しかし、端末を横に持った場合、片手入力は難しく、横幅を生かしてQWERTY入力を行いたいのですが、現在のSwiftkey ではいちいち設定を変更しなくてはレイアウトを変更することが出来ません。端末の向き毎にレイアウトを切り替えてくれる設定を追加してください、Gboardをはじめ多くの日本語IMが同種の機能を持っています。 特にSurface Duoではこの問題が顕著になります。横に持ってフリック入力では折角の2画面の意味が半減してしまいます。
