Shared Keyboard Size for Different Languages1 vote 0 commentsHello, developer team. I'm bilingual keyboard user (Thai-English) on Android 10 (Huawei). I notice that the keyboard sizes is changed with swtiched languages which is really annoying. If I switch to Thai, the keyboard size has higher height. Even if I resize the keyboard, the keyboard sizes are shared with one size setting. It should work like number & symbol layout in English, the size remains the same. Or there might be option to choose either to make its size adapt to languages or remain its size. Thank you, Adithep

Numeric Keypad0 votes 0 commentsHave submitted a feature request for a numeric keypad to be available in SwiftKey. It is surprising that for the sophisticated level of the app, it does not have one. Google G-board does, but the keyboard lacks in accuracy and learning. Most people are used to capturing figures through a keypad, be it on laptop, mobile, ATM, etc. Even Microsoft login reset brings up a numeric keypad for you to enter the security code they send you. Why can't this feature be included on the app? Has anyone else felt the need for this? Please submit as a feature request in order to give the suggestion more weight.
Android error: "Unlock your device to view" ???1 vote 0 comments
I'm running the latest SwiftKey on my Android 10 device (OnePlus 7Pro - GM-1917 - running OOS 10.3.3). It has been working fine for months, but recently, an error has started occurring. I also am getting this same error on the latest SwiftKey beta.
With the keyboard open, if I click on the three dots on the upper right in order to get to the settings, the keyboard disappears, and I just get a blank window containing the following message: "Unlock your device to view".
My device is not "locked" in any way. All other apps work fine.
This never used to happen. I only started noticing it within the past couple days.
Now, when I go into my Android settings, select SwiftKey, and try to select a different keyboard layout, I get the same error instead of seeing a layout to click on.
It seems like whenever SwiftKey is trying to display some sort of dialog within an area on the screen, this error occurs.
Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?
Thank you in advance.

Truly customizable keyboard layout0 votes 0 comments
Hey guys. First thanks for keyboard. Second why you won't do fully customizable keyboard? I could not find any and that would be truly amazing feature. Like if I can select what symbol I can send in any key. Also if I can add maybe one or 2 extra keys making spacebar narrower (like left right arrows keys would be cool) And even super mega duper cool would be to add extra mode. Like now I can toggle modes with button 123/abc so if there is 123/abc/my it would be jackpot for me... I would go crazy and to this new mode keyboard I would add for me normal arrows like on normal keyboard, I would add there button that would send shift+enter code and shift+tab as some web pages uses this. ctrl+z, esc code, f1 code and such button codes. It would be truly amazing fully customizable and possible to send all the codes which I have trouble to type with most keyboards... And it is not really difficult to implement... Like text prediction may be science but this is just 2 extra buttons and list which maps button with sent code.... An intern could do that...

Feature request : Swipe the delete key to range select and delete.3 votes 0 commentsI would love to see a similar implementation similar to G board. Where as a user touches the delete key and begins swiping backwards and the words get highlighted have you swipe from right to left and when you let go of the delete key the words get deleted.
Not being able to use swipe back from left/right gesture anymore on Oneplus 6T1 vote 0 comments
One of the recent updates has broken the back swipe from left or right of the screen with the keyboard out. Now it only works outside (above) of the keyboard and not along the keyboard area anymore. It seems to be a problem with all oneplus devices. See this thread I posted on reddit.
Oneplus 6t navigation gestures not working0 votes 0 commentsOneplus navigation gestures i.e. Slide from the side to go back is not working in my oneplus 6t. It was working till yesterday, now its not working. I have to slide anywhere after the keyboard ends to make it work. It's working with the default keyboard in the device. Can we have a quick solution on this?
Back gesture not working after 188.8.131.52 update0 votes 0 commentsAfter the 184.108.40.206 update, the back gesture no longer works in the area where the keyboard is. You have to swipe in from the area above the keyboard in order to go back using this gesture. I can confirm this is not an Android issue as Samsung and OnePlus devices are both affected. Reverting back to version 220.127.116.11 fixes the issue. So something was messed up during the latest update. It's a bug. I have raised a ticket with Microsoft, but if you are also experiencing this I would urge you to do the same. It's extremely annoying and you end up typing random letters when trying to swipe in from where the keyboard is.

Since the latest SwiftKey Update you can't use One Plus back gesture or Samsung One Hand Operation+ gestures anymore1 vote 0 commentsSince the yesterday update you can't use gestures inside the keyboard area anymore... This brokes One Plus native back gestures and One Hand Operation+ gestures from Samsung. It's pretty annoying because when you try to do the back gesture you end pressing random keys of the keyboard, and after hours trying to get used to this, I just can't... Please fix this issue asap, I don't want to use other keyboard for this reason, but this issue is extremely annoying.

Backspace key settings1 vote 0 comments
I've always used the Samsung keyboard before, but it lagged a lot on my new phone, so I was told to try another keyboard. Swiftkey has solved my lagging problem, or at least I don't notice it as much, but instead I find that I'd like to customize my backspace button. When I hold down the key, it deletes entire words instead of just letters, which really gets on my nerves when I make a typo in longer words (I type in Finnish too). Additionally, I'd really like to rearrange the "symbols" page (the one that pops up when you press the 123 button), though I suppose I'll grow used to the new order of keys in time if rearranging them isn't possible. But is there a way to change settings for the backspace key?
Errors in Sinhala Typing0 votes 0 commentsThere are few errors with Sinhala language typing. As for an example, ෙම ෙක ෙව අා අැ අෑ ෙව ෙස Etc... They should be arranged like this, වෙ සෙ කෙ ඇ ඈ මෙ චෙ රෙ බෙ ලෙ ටෙ etc... Please fix it. I have reported this issue before also. Hope you guys will sort this out.
