Numeric Keypad0 votes 0 comments
There is an option to set a numeric keypad to the left or right of the keyboard. I cannot get this to work in landscape mode (not in portrait either but I only want it in landscape).

Swype Features1 vote 1 comment
Hello, I'm coming over from Swype and there are a few things that I'm wondering if I can do.
- Capitalize the word "I" in the middle of a sentence without having auto correct on
- Option of original key in long-press option (e. g. have "e" be an option of long-press "e")
- Copy & paste shortcuts (Swype key to A would select all text, Swype key to C would copy, and Swype key to V would paste)
I've been back and forth trying out SwiftKey and Gboard and these are the things that have prevented me from switching away from Swype for a long time.
Thanks for the help!
Swipe on space bar like gboard.1 vote 4 comments
Can we get swipe on space to scroll like gboard and swipe from delete button to delete word. This is the only feature that prevents me to use SwiftKey.

Lost all of my clips from clipboard Answered1 vote 6 comments
Didn't know until recently that the three lines on the keyboard gave you access to the clipboard. Well, the first time I found it, all of my clips were there. After going back to the keyboard, I tried it again, this time hoping to paste something. But when I went to the clipboard the second time, all of my clips were gone!
I thought maybe the keyboard was just acting up, but when I went through the actually SwiftKey app, all of my clips were missing from there as well!
What the heck happened? Can I get them back?
*I didn't download anything or do a phone or app update of any kind before this happened.*
Why is Swiftkey asking for my location? Answered3 votes 5 comments
I really like swiftkey and I've used it for years, but things like this bug me: What possible reason would SwK ask me for access to my location? How is that in any way a benefit to me? Just wondering how they justify such a request.
[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji1 vote 2 comments
I know it's been requested in the past, but we really need a favorites emoji tab. The recent emojis only holds about 28, so I can barely hang onto the ones I use regularly, if I happen to use any others. Suddenly I have to search through the countless other emojis, just to find the one I want. I've taken to regularly reorganizing my recently used, in the annoying and tedious task of reusing them all at once so they stay at the top of my recent list.
Please, I love SwiftKey, and just badly want this feature. Not having it is driving me nuts

Symbols automatically enter a space?2 votes 1 commentEvery time I try to enter symbols after using Flow to create a word, the symbol always automatically puts a space in between it and the word I entered before it with the Flow. For example, when I make typo errors, I like to retext the word (correctly spelled) and put an asterisk directly after it. For example, I try to say "Family*" but when I enter the word "Family" using Flow, and I type an asterisk, it automatically puts a space between the two entrees and types "Family *". This happens to EVERY symbol (asterisks, colons, semi-colons, and more) except quotation marks ("). No matter how I enter it, it will add in a space. It doesn't matter if I long press a letter to enter the symbol or switch to the symbol keyboard to manually enter it - it will always enter a space, and then the symbol. This always only happens after I enter a word with the Flow system (swiping to letters to create a word). It's an extremely tedious and messy mechanic, as I tend to enter many symbols, and yet the keyboard automatically messes up the sentence with an extra space. The only symbol this tends to be useful for is dashes (-) as many times it can be nice to have spaces around the dashes in between words. Thanks for any feedback or any fix!

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!
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....

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.

Problem SYNC "solved"2 votes 13 comments
"Unfortunelly" i've found "the problem"...
Google is blocking the comunication between Swiftkey and Gmail, because Microsoft don't agree yet with the new Google privacy politcs...
So, I created a new account, but not Google Account.. I created a new Microsoft Account and the sync is working on my device... BUT.. i've lost all my words that was in google account...
I have a sugestion: the Microsoft Swiftkey could create the function "IMPORT" words... The function "export words" is working. I did the download and it's all ok... So, if microsoft create this function, all the problem will be solved...
OOORRR... ACCEPT THE POLITCS OF GOOGLE, MICROSOFT!
