Suddenly periods appearing out of nowhere.0 votes 2 commentsI don't know if it's a new update or what? But every time I pause a moment. It adds a. See what I mean? I would rather have control of this myself. Then have the app do for me. This is all. Supposed to be one long sentence that I have chosen
Feature Request: Have arrow keys require long press.0 votes 0 comments
I love the arrow keys on the SwiftKey Keyboard, but I've an issue with them.
I frequently go to press space bar and accidentally hit the 'back' arrow key. As I type quite fast this results in my typing cursor going back one letter into the word and breaking off the final letter as I type more. It looks a bit like this:
"Typing a messag gets reall annoying sometimesye"
Basically, in this example, I hit the the 'back' arrow instead of the space bar at the end of the words 'message' and 'really'.
I'd prefer to continue using the arrow keys if possible because they're quite useful, so my feature request is this:
Would it be possible to have a setting for the arrow keys require long press to activate? If a short press is detected on the arrow keys, have said arrow keys perform the action of the key above it.
(This would specifically to the 'down arrow' key and the 'back arrow' key as the 'up' and 'right' keys have multiple buttons above them they're not really an issue to be honest.)
Opening Swiftkey0 votes 0 comments
Swiftkey is installed on my Android 7 phone.
When I press the Swiftkey app it doesn't open the app so I cannot get into it.
This started when I was trying to find out why I started getting emojis instead of enter arrow.
Any thoughts as to what has happened please?

Where did this "face" come from on top of my keyboard and how do I remove it?1 vote 1 comment
The keyboard just popped up recently (must have been an update?) with this really super-annoying and distracting face-like image as a watermark on the keyboard (two circles, and a rectangular-ish hat). I HATE it. It is causing me to mis-type things, and I want it gone. I cannot figure out how or why it got there, but I need to know how to remove it or I will be deleting this program. Please advise.

Frustration0 votes 0 commentsI'm just about at the end of my rope trying to find a decent keyboard for my phone. One that I can swipe or Glide or flow or whatever you call it with some accuracy. This is terrible. I tried to swipe in words like plug and I get plopping. I tried getting economy and I get proper nouns constantly like Erving or Everson. I try swiping demands over and over, using looping trails or straight lines it doesn't. matter I get Ferdinando. Party gives me Lasorda. I always end up resorting to voice to text. But getting to the microphone button requires a long press clear on the other side of the keyboard. So what I've done is I've resorted to deleting every word that it predicts until I can get my word by swiping. 60% of the time that works. I just can't understand how there's not one single keyboard out there the works well. I have a brand new OnePlus 7t phone. I used to have a keyboard on a Samsung phone that you get tune speed versus accuracy for instance. So I know they make keyboards that work well. So why should I keep trying your keyboard? Gboard half sux but it's not this bad. Your settings are intensely Limited. I don't know I'm just so annoyed that I can't communicate through my phone right now that I'm beside myself. By the way I can swipe with my eyes closed with about 60 to 70% accuracy typically.
multiline text field in Facebook messenger-1 votes 0 comments
When I write in Facebook Messenger, instead of keeping the existing textfield (and see the last reply from my friends), I get a full multiline text area hiding everything. I would prefer to keep the "existing" text field from the Messenger application.
I looked in the swiftkey for a configuration and did not find anyway to disable that behaviour.
Can someone help me with this?

Letter "a" capitalizing before a proper noun0 votes 0 commentsWhen I type a sentence with the letter "a" preceding a proper noun, the keyboard will automatically capitalize the "a" unless I press the spacebar before the noun. For example, if I want to type "a Cadillac," it will come out as "A Cadillac." This will occur in the middle of a sentence where the "a" doesn't require a capital letter. How can I stop this? Otherwise, I do want auto caps to occur, so I don't want to turn it off completely.

New to SwiftKey... capitalization question0 votes 0 comments
I'm coming from gboard, and I love the ability to select a word and hit the shift key to cycle through capitalization of the word. Does SwiftKey have the same feature? I tried using the same method, and it didn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Why does attempted punctuation end with 'MC' sometimes?0 votes 0 comments
Often, when I swipe right on the .!? key I end up with MC instead.
How can that stop?
What's going on here?
I admit it might be me, but I've seen others mention it before.

"Device restricts the app" resulting in the inability to create a custom theme1 vote 0 comments
Running emui 8 (oreo) on a rooted device (non detectable and not detected by google safetyNet)
tried re-installing keyboard but when opening an image for a custom theme:
An error has occured
You are not in battery saving mode
You have an internet browser
Your internet browser is enabled
If these don't work, your device has restricted the app and we can't redirect you.
It worked previusly before a reset.
Gestures0 votes 0 commentsOk so what the hell. It has been several years and still the most basic thing to turn off gestures isn't implemented. How is it so hard to code that in? The flow is annoying couse it randomly falsely activates and starts writing words or spaces while the gesture is annoying couse every time I click too fast and swipe accidentally I either delete the whole damn word or close the keyboard..
Words get added0 votes 0 comments
When I type a message on swiftkey, many times it adds words in making the assumption of what I would type. How can this be disabled?
Translation is not consistent and has bugs0 votes 0 commentsTranslation has a couple of bugs in it. 1) Sometimes when I begin to type in the translation field it will put 1 letters in the destination area then stop. I have to delete the letter and begin again. But the second time it will always work correctly. Also it is inconsistent in whether it can be used as "read translation" mode or "typing translation" mode. This is livable but very disappointing since the ne android 10 has made other translation software difficult to use. And not the easiest to use is your translation addin. But I can not figure out what switches it from reading and translating what is copied to the mode that requires you to paste or type something in the field. Confusing and difficult. I use Samsung note 10 +
Clipboard now showing to the right instead of emoticons0 votes 0 commentsWhat has changed to cause the clipboard word showing on the right suggestion area instead of the emoticons. Now I have to click on this which inserts the clipboard data and then I have to delete it from my message just to be able to see the memorized emoticons that I normally use. This happens every time I I copy something. Before the clipboard only suggested in the center location which went away after I began typing more letters and that worked perfectly. Please fix this
Why does SwiftKey seem to be going backwards?-1 votes 0 commentsSwiftKey somehow has made it harder to type a message. When I type an unknown proper name, like Nantz, it gives me 3 other suggestions, with no easy way to simply capitalize what I typed... CORRECTLY!! It's incredibly annoying.

Note 10 SwiftKey not sending Gifs (url only) on stock Samsung/Android Messaging App1 vote 0 commentsHello, I am on a Galaxy Note 10 running One UI version 2.0 (Android version 10). Suddenly, I am not able to send Gifs as I normally have been. They show up as long url's. In Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, and Skype (all latest versions), Gifs send as actual Gifs. It works flawlessly with SwiftKey. But using the Messaging app that is stock in the Note 10 (version 11.0.00.217), any and every Gif I send shows up as a url as long as a paragraph. Any ideas how to fix this??
