Swiftkey refuses to learn the word "shaft"0 votes 0 comments
I was trying to write out drive shaft and no matter what I do I cannot get swiftkey to work with the word shaft.
If I type shaft out and select it, it will then work when swyping. But if I delete the word shaft it will no longer put it in when I swype. I have tried removing EVERY other option that come up and it does not help. No matter what I do I can not get shaft to work when swyping unless I manually type it in first and leave it there.
I tried manually typing it out many times in a row and tapping the correct word down in the predictive text box but that does not help at all.
This is very aggravating, I am open to any suggestions.
Space bar conflicting with Galaxy S9 gesture area0 votes 0 commentsHi! I've been having problems recently with the SwiftKey space bar, as tapping on it seems to activate the Home button gesture on my Samsung Galaxy S9 using Android Pie. This hasn't happened before, and I'm not sure if it's a SwiftKey issue or an Android issue. Has anyone had a similar issue? Thanks!
Chinese handwriting recognition0 votes 0 comments
Can you please add an option to turn off automatic handwriting recognition?
I would love to be able to draw a character in Chinese and manually choose the correct one from the bar. Right now when I'm drawing a character it automatically chooses the wrong character and when I lower down recognition speed, I have to wait long periods after drawing some simple characters.
Missing Emojis0 votes 0 commentsI am missing some emoji that currently exist on the latest version of Android, such as the hedgehog, otter, and flamingo. When I switch to GBoard, those emoji are present, but SwiftKey isn't showing them. Would there be any reason why those are different?
MEME Support0 votes 0 commentsI've been using the "collections" (pin icon) functionality to save reaction memes in. It works but with a few little tweaks it could literally be a game changer! - ability to create folders for categories under "collections" - ability to name and tag each item in collections and search for them ( now that it has a lot in there). -ability to add to "collections" without having to submit into current input field (sometimes I just want to load up a batch that come to mind and it's tedious to get to that submit screen. Instead of only that option with the send arrow, if it also had a plus sign to "just add" that would help a lot! Or have a collections-like separate feature that's almost the same + these tweaks, specifically for reaction memes.

Light and dark theme?0 votes 0 commentsCould you implement a feature or a theme where it automatically switches to a light colored keyboard throughout the day and a dark colored one when it gets dark? Right now I'm using a white keyboard and when it's night I get blinded by the light. I really don't like to switching themes every day.
Did anyone lose 6 or more years of their predictive dictionary?1 vote 1 comment
So recently there was a thread addressed the sync issue and FINALLY someone addresses it...
But bluntly put, that didn't really answer anything... if anything, that raises even more concerns. Dashkorosh noted that he had 14k words but suddenly it went down to 1.3k words!
Then other people started to check their predictive dictionary and said their words were gone as well.... then I checked my predictive dictionary on my account and mine were gone too!
You can go here to check: https://data.swiftkey.com/
I exported my dictionary but ended up deleting it because it's useless (more on that later) but I can easily tell that I lost most of my words... because when I checked my predictive dictionary a month or so ago, I was scrolling down my predictive dictionary and almost never ending... like, I didn't know if I was ever going to hit the bottom of my list because it had THAT many years of words predicted for me... and now it's all gone :(
Looking back, I wish I kept my exported dictionary... but it wasn't like you can do anything with it. There's no option to reupload the exported file it to your Swiftkey account because there's no import button on the website... so what's the point of having an export option??
So as the thread title implies, have you checked to see if you lost your predictive dictionary? I mean, it seems sync is working now as I just uninstalled and reinstalled Swiftkey to see if it remembers stuff... but I don't think losing 6+ years of my predictive dictionary was worth it....

Floating thumb/split layout1 vote 0 comments
On older versions I could use a floating thumb layout. That was great on tables in landscape orientation.
How can I enable that mode or did that feature disappear?

Android 10 Emoji Added1 vote 4 comments
I know that Swiftkey is supposed to support the OS level emoji automatically but when I upgraded to Android 10, none of the new Unicode 12 emoji are shown. These show up on Gboard. Any plan to add the new emoji?
Autocorrect can't recognize any Russian words0 votes 0 commentsAfter the last update I noticed that in any text field or input whenever I use Russian the word (even in your app) get a red squiggly line with options to add to dictionary or delete.

Cannot see long-press characters before pressing1 vote 2 comments
On keyboard, second set of keys are not displayed (above regular characters). Long-pressing the key still works normally, but I have to guess (what key, when long-pressed, will produce dash?) or use number/symbol keyboard instead. Weirdly, when i switch to incognito mode, I can see them.
So how do I make long-press options visible before pressing without entering incognito mode?

Japanese prediction works bad in romaji layout0 votes 0 comments
hey! I met a weird problem with Japanese input as described below.
- Sony xz
- Android 8.0
- 220.127.116.11/ Beta18.104.22.168
- Steps to reproduce : I use En/Jp/Cn. if typing Japanese with hiraagara layout, everything works well. But prediction works really bad if I switch to romaji layout.
- I upload a video showing I want to type the word 中国(china). Prediction looks well ,showed many works in advance before I typed competely with hiragara layout, but romaji layout didnt give me the answer even I typed completely.

[Known Issue]Delete gesture fails constantly on Pixel 41 vote 1 commentThe swipe backwards delete gesture seems to be significantly less sensitive on the Pixel 4 (XL if that matters). It is much harder to get the delete gesture to work than on my other phone (OnePlus 5). It would be great if there were a way to set the sensitivity of the gesture.

VOICE AUDIO (NOT to text) button is gone? Answered0 votes 1 comment
I just moved from my beloved LG to a sterile but functional Samsung S10 ... and noticed that the microphone button that used to allow for audio recordings (not voice to text) that resided top right above the number keys is gone.
> Is this an update that removed?
> Is this a Samsung limitation?
> Is there an obvious solution that I'm missing because I don't drink coffee like everyone else?

Swiftkey should not treat all words as Vietnamese when on its input method (TELEX)2 votes 0 comments
I'm using Swiftkey's Vietnamese Telex input, there is a bit confused when typing English on it.
It treats all my word as vietnamese, so there are problems with it, for example
I must type WORRD to be correct as WORD, but WO is not a Vietnamese word, why do Swiftkey add the ? on top of O when i type R (WỎ), this is a waste of time.
Type GOOGLE.C and then O will make the word become GÔGLE.CO, what? there is not way to discard the Ô if i type O again
COORDINATE, if i remove letter by letter from the right to COOR, when remove R, it become CỎO, what again?
Errant placement of words in text0 votes 0 commentsI'm entering text at the bottom of my entry and the cursor jumps to somewhere else on the page. There is no set pattern for this, it just migrates to wherever. An example is that it just tried to insert the second part of the word "wherever" ie.: ever up between the words "no" and "set" in the line above. I've got android on my phone and it just started filling this a month or two ago. This happens constantly. I did a factory reset 2 days ago. It did it before and afterward with equal vengeance. I'm getting tired of it, but I truly love my SwiftKey! Any idea?
