I know it has been fixed one year ago but the latest update made my keyboard far too big.
Here are screenshots of the different sizes: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dcavhvbj2it8byl/AABIrKlbKm9ZQfek39ZbmvXea?dl=0
Please fix this quickly :)

[Main Thread] Keyboard Letters Uneven [Known Issue] Pinned Planned8 votes 12 comments
I've used SwiftKey for years, but suddenly the keys are no longer in straight lines, but appear to be slightly raised or lowered, I assume that's where I usually hit the keys but it doesn't usually show that on my screen and I wish it wouldn't, it's very disconcerting. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't see a setting anywhere to turn it off, or understand why it happened in the first place. Unsure how to attach an image to this.
White Navigation Bar with Dark Theme Pinned12 votes 11 comments
Hi. After my unit was updated to Android P, when Swift keyboard is activated, the navigation bar (bottom) turns white, despite having the dark theme setted in Android. This doesn't happen with Gboard. I didn't have this issue with android 8. Am I missing a particular setting?

We have been beta testing Bing Search within SwiftKey. This feature allows you to quickly search the web for anything and either, quickly capture a screen shot, crop it and send it OR send the URL directly in the conversations you are already having.
Key features to test out:
- Search for something while already inside the app you're in
- Crop and share a screen shot of search results
- Share the URL of search results after a search
- Try a range of searches to see how the results are
Please let us know what you think about this feature(s) and how it can be improved.

[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard Pinned Featured-2 votes 14 comments
Dear SwiftKey users,
We heard several times that some of you may run into an issue that annoys you very much: I selected SwiftKey as default input method, and it will randomly switch back to the stock (OEM) keyboard
Reason no.1 is the RAM cleaner killed SwiftKey. The solution is very easy: add SwiftKey into the white-list.
More importantly: it also could because some of the phones' OS has special RAM management and battery monitor to control the usage of each app. SwiftKey Keyboard for Android supports 5 languages at the same time, plus the Neural (AI learning) technology for predicting next words intelligently might need a bit more power from your phone. This could cause unwanted accidentally killing of SwiftKey
How to prevent it?
Well, different phones have different OS, even if they're all Android, but deeply customized. Here I list some of the phones which ran into this issue.
Samsung devices before Android Nougat update and some other close to stock android OS phones: System Settings > Battery (Power) > Battery Optimization > tap "not optimized" and select "all apps" > Find SwiftKey > Choose "Don't optimize".
Samsung device after Android Nougat (7.0+) update: System Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Oppo smartphones: Security Center > Battery > Enable Smart power-saving mode > Power-saving app control and management > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Xiaomi smartphones: Go to Security Tab -Permission-Auto-start management - Add auto-start apps, check SwiftKey.
Hope this little tutorial can help you. Let us know if you have any other tips or tricks to help others out

Space before and after punctuation0 votes 1 comment
In the last few days, on my Android Sony Experia, the automatic adding of spaces after a punctuation mark, and deletion of spaces before a punctuation mark when you've used the central suggestion word has stopped! This is infuriating as it was a feature we've had for years.There seems to be no setting to turn it on or off. Is it a bug?

SwiftKey Beta nav bar theming0 votes 0 comments
Nav bar had gone way too light with recent update. Very difficult to use, especially since I'm using a dark theme.
Key layout should be customizable0 votes 0 comments
I love swiftkey, I use it since it was an independent app and even paid for some themes; however it hasn't evolved as much as I think it should, for many years. The most annoying detail for me is the absence of angular quotations ("«" and "»") in the Spanish layout. These are the preferred quotation marks in Spanish writing, over "", which forces me to write incorrectly when on my phone. The thing is, even if this was added, it wouldn't be enough. I can think of tens of different key layout details that make my writing more uncomfortable or inefficient. Therefore, I wholeheartedly recommend you to allow users to design their own key layout with any unicode character they choose; you can get great community templates for free and we can get writing just as we like it.
Thank you for your time.
Bottom row keys got big0 votes 0 comments
The buttons next to the space key (symbol key, emoji, comma, period and enter) got really big all of a sudden and has totally offset the space button. I keep hitting the comma button now when I hit space. Rest of the keyboard has remained the correct size.

Tatar latin keyboard layout0 votes 0 comments
Many Tatar people use latin letters to type...
However there is no such thing in Swift Key.
There is only the oficial Cyrillic layout.
Is it possible that you add the Latin Tatar layout inserted below?
Or maybe there will be an app like Microsoft Layout Creator?
[Suggestion] Adjust the color of the navbar based on the theme. Planned0 votes 4 comments
I really love SwiftKey and would like to continue using it, but there I have a big problem! Whenever I have the keyboard open the navbar on man Huawei mate 20 pro is white, regardless of the theme on my SwiftKey. I usually like to use dark keyboards, which looks horrible with a white navbar below.
I have tried third party navbar apps to fix the problem, but they are usually really buggy. I know that Gboard (which I don't want to use but light have to) adjust the color of the navbar based on the color of the keyboard theme, so it should be possible to fix?
Theme0 votes 0 comments
I am using thieme Pitch.
In my android mobile I sometimes use the settings Inverted colors.
When I do that the theme colors are changed to white background and black text.
I would like to the colors to be unchanged - black backgorund and white text.
I use inverted colors because I have problem to read texts with white background and black text.
Advanced Setting: Key to Set Language for Google Voice Typing0 votes 0 comments
For users that switch between languages a lot with Google Voice Typing, there is a wide feeling that automatic language recognition doesn't work properly, as shown by these discussions:
- Android Central: SwiftKeys and Google Voice Recognition
- Stack Exchange: Disable Google Voice Typing Automatic Language Detection
For us, this makes Google Voice Typing unusable on Swiftkeys. We speak English, it types French or Spanish. We speak English, it types Spanish.
For this reason, many people are asking for a key on the keyboard to let us manually set the language. Because we change languages often, this needs to happen on the keyboard, not inside Google Voice Typing settings, which would not work anyway (every time we switch languages, we'd have to uninstall other languages).
This can be an Advanced Setting to "Add key to manually set input language". To be usable, this key should NOT give us a huge list of languages, but just our "favorite languages", which are the ones installed in Google Voice Typing.
Please note that the Google Voice Typing API allows the developer to do that:
- In Reverso, depending on the direction of the translation (e.g. English to Spanish), Google Voice Typing opens with the correct language pre-selected.
- There are some keyboards that use Google Voice Typing and let you set the language manually (one of several SpeechKeys).
I, for one, would be willing to pay for a keyboard that provided some advanced features to give us greater control.
[Duplicate] Swiftkey Keyboard has Off-Centered keys that are out of line1 vote 1 comment
As shown in the first picture below, the asdf keys are not in line and seem to be placed in a non-colinear manner and the same can be said about some of the keys in the bottom row. The "d" is lower than "a" and "s" but the "g" is higher than all three. I've been using SwiftKey for many years and am confused as to why this weird issue suddenly persists despite reinstalls and resets.
Predicted text0 votes 0 comments
When I have auto correct on, the middle prediction is almost always exactly what I've typed. Regardless of whether it is a real word or not. This is very frustrating as this is also the word that is inserted if I press space. I'm sure SwiftKey didn't used to behave like this.
It seems to me that the centre prediction should only be a dictionary word (including personal dictionary). I'm sure incorrect words used to appear on the left so they could be chosen (and added to the personal dictionary) if needed.
I have turned off auto prediction for this reason. But I miss being able to press space to insert the centre word (especially I) and being able to capitalise a word after I've started typing.
Has SwiftKey's behaviour changed? Or am I going mad?

Disappearing symbols0 votes 0 comments
The secondary character symbols on my keyboard have started randomly disappearing on my Note 8. Switching to another theme or the Samsung keyboard and then back to the original sometimes restores them. Does anyone know what is going on please?
Keyboard is too low without navigation bar1 vote 0 comments
After the update to Samsung One Ui, there is the possibility of using gestures instead of the navigation bar. However by using that the swift key keyboard will go all the way to the bottom, which makes the keys hard to type, as they are further from the middle of the screen. I would like to ask for an optional padding on the bottom, to fulfill the space that once was reserved for the navigation bar. I keep missing some keys and it gets really uncomfortable over time because I have to place my fingers all the way down.

Multiple Full Stops being entered when typing and no setting to stop it.0 votes 0 comments
Something changed on my SwiftKey software that resulted in multiple 'Full Stops' after random words to the extent that when sending a text message say 4 paragraphs long I would end up with 20 'Full Stops' this never used to happen.
Multiple Support Request were also raised the last one being 197016 however now all seem to be closed.
This is. me writing how. I. would. normally without going back and taking out all the full. stops. like. I. have to. all the time and it is. driving. me crazy to. the point I. can. no. longer use your software.
Please investigate and provide an update there are multiple users all having the same problem.
Thanks, Cueball. vg
Locked with different language.Can't unlock now.0 votes 1 comment
I locked my Huawei P20 Pro with a password, consisting of Macedonian letters. Then I changed the keyboard from swiftkeyboard to google. And now I can't unlock the phone, because it requires entering the password in Macedonian. But I can't change the language unless I unlock the phone. So I got some kind of a vicious circle here. To enter my password, I have to change the language, and to change the language, I have to enter my password.
Please help all my 2000 pictures are inside, I don't want to make a hard reset and lose all my information.

Themes Issue0 votes 0 comments
I have recently performed factory reset of my phone (Huawei P9 Lite 2017) and I wanted to set up the SwiftKey custom theme.
Whenever I open the SwiftKey app to comfogure settings everything works just fine, but when I go to "Themes" it automatically closes the app and it doesn't allow me to open that section.
Any advice on how to resolve this issue?
