Select a word, Select all, copy and paste: How many years will it take?-1 votes 0 comments
I keep giving swiftkey a try and then find out these very basic and useful features are still not included and I end up uninstalling every time. Going back to old swype keyboard, which is even today better than swiftkey.
Suggestions (have been made so many time by so many people):
1) Select a word: When you have a cursor on a word (anywhere, start, middle or end of the word) and you press the swype key in swype keyboard, it selects the word. Can we have it in swiftkey?
2) Select all: Swipe from swype key to A, selects all. Very surprised many keyboard don't offer this. This is so useful.
3) Copy: like ctrl+c, swipe from swype key to C.
4) Paste: like ctrl+v, swipe from swype key to V.
Basically these 4 and many other things could be accomplished by simply swiping from swype key to some particular alphabet. Why is it so hard to include these such useful features, esp. after they been requested so many times over the years. I still see this same request made 2 years back and yet no result. What a shame. And I know the new update just launched a toolbar with clipboard in there. That's just a very bad and incomplete execution of these features and don't compare at all.
Time to uninstall and go back to swype keyboard. Will check in again after few months, hopefully with these changes.

Swiftkey recently started echoing characters1 vote 0 comments
I noticed that since 3 days ago, when typing using swiftkey, it starts echoing characters in words.
For example, in the picture below, swiftkey added an extra "i" to writing, an extra "h" to here and an extra "." at the end of the sentence.
Clipboard Search0 votes 0 commentsHello :D Thanks for this marvelous keyboard 🤩 Would it be possible to have a search edit in the clipboard utility please ? I have a lot of clips registered and I'd like to be able to search them by any word (even on shortcuts) because it's not easy to find the one in a big list 🙏 The clipboard would be perfect with this 😍 Regards, Greg

How do I reduce the doubletap speed for capital letters keyboard?0 votes 0 comments
Most times I doubletap the Shift key to turn on the CAPITALS keyboard it fails. It doesn't recognise the doubletap. But if I tap slower it does. So I wish to speed up the system recognition of the doubletap on the Shift key.

SwiftKey has become useless-1 votes 0 commentsIt is now very common that SwiftKey purposes completely words that are compteront different from what I've typed. Or that may have diverging in common with the word that I have typed. But it seems that SwiftKey tries to find a word that resembles what I've typed, instead of giving me the word that I've typed. As you can see from this text, most words are correct now. This might be because I'm syrupy gin English and the guessing still before functions. When I'm working in dB facsimile haïssable it's a nightmare. I mean, is haissable even a word?
Toolbar icons not working0 votes 0 commentsAfter updating the application and getting the new toolbar, I'm unable to access themes through it. Same thing happens with the Settings icon on the toolbar, when tapping Info icon, it doesn't either allow access themes through the option listed there. When accessing to Puppets and trying it, doesn't do anything either. I hope I can have some insight on this matter, thank u~

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?
