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.

Add to dictionary Answered2 votes 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?

Easier way to do a question mark? Answered1 vote 5 comments
I currently do a question mark by:
- press-and-hold on period (bottom right)
- slide over to question mark, then release
I always find it quite awkward. Is there an easier why to do a question mark?
Can I remap question mark to another key maybe?
Ideally I'd like a rapid double-tap of period to produce a question mark
Can you fine tune autocorrect? Answered1 vote 19 comments
I'm finding SwiftKey incredibly annoying for a few different reasons: firstly because it autocorrects words that are legitimately words (i.e. not nonsense from poor typing); and secondly because it autocorrects when searching from address bar in Google.
These two things are very undesirable behaviours for me and they drive me bonkers.
I don't just want to turn autocorrect off, though, because I do want it to fix up genuine mistakes.
Is there a way to tune the settings so that I can turn off the things I don't want??

[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Answered102 votes 104 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 3 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
Sync Clipboard Answered5 votes 8 comments
I see there other posts on these but the *status is closed without any conclusion.*
How important does SwiftKey think is a good idea to sync Clipboard? This often consists of my usernames or passport number, greeting messages to my clients. And after every phone reset or phone device upgrade, I have to redo everything again. I need to take the trouble of copying every clipboard pinned texts to Evernote and then put it in SwiftKey. We are heading into 2020.

change emoji gender Answered0 votes 21 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.

Voice to text not working properly Answered3 votes 7 comments

How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Answered4 votes 7 comments
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance
Clips in clipboard Answered0 votes 6 comments
Is there a way to to automatically save the clips on clipboard? The clips get deleted after 1 hour but I don't want them to be deleted. I know pining them will solve the problem but I want a permanent solution so that my copied items can stay in clipboard forever without needing to pin them individually.

Multiple Language Priority Answered7 votes 26 comments
I use a few different languages with SwiftKey and it works great, but I use English the most. But ever since I added the other languages I communicate in, SwiftKey seems to be suggesting foreign words over common words in English. Like "N°" instead of "No" and "Só" instead of "So".
Is there a way to hint to SwiftKey to prioritize English words so I stop sending "N°, I don't want to go to that restaurant" to my friends?
Number Pad Layout Answered4 votes 3 comments
I would like an option in the settings to display the number pad with 123 starting at the bottom instead of at the top. It is more natural for me. I also find that I make critical errors in typing numbers because the 123 starts at the top.
Could you please add this feature in the next update.
