Hi Swiftkey Team. Punjabi language keyboard on Swiftkey keyboard is not complete, which causes problems and we can't write Punjabi properly. On Swiftkey, it is same as Urdu keyboard. To Occupie all the accents of Punjabi i,e,. Majhi, Jatki, Multani etc. There are 8 Addition Alphabets in Punjabi as to urdu. So, We Request Swiftkey team to add these Additional Alphabets in GBoard Punjabi Keyboard, that we 100 million Pakistani Punjabi can write Our language properly.

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.

Finally got my voice to text back but now Google is interfering. HELP! Answered0 votes 1 comment
After my microphone quit working I spent three hours messing around and finally got it somewhat back. Seems that "Google Voice Typing" was toggled on and interfering with SwiftKey. After I turned that off it seems to work but now I have another problem. Now I'm seeing this screen (See attached) that I've never seen before that has to do with Google and it's giving me suggestions but it's causing another issue. It's creating one more step before I can send a text and more importantly...it also doesn't listen as long before and it quits recording.so I find myself having to erase the text and start it over again. It used to give me the option to continue my existing text. Do you know if this has anything to do with SwiftKey or with Google
Thank you in advance for any suggestions
Custom Toolbar Answered1 vote 1 comment
After the recent update, it is impossible to remove items from the toolbar. Can you pls consider re-instating the option of removing unwanted buttons to allow "swift" entry than making it mandatory to keep 6 buttons.

Voice to text not working properly Answered3 votes 8 comments
I'm running andriod 10 on a Pixel 3 and voice to text has become more and more erratic. It's always had seemingly random capitalization and now, as of the past few days, random punctuation. Getting to the point of being unusable? Anyone experiencing these problems?

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.
New toolbar introduced, how can I hide or disable it? (2020) Answered5 votes 8 comments
A new toolbar with many new features has been introduced (https://9to5google.com/2018/03/15/swiftkey-update-toolbar-stickers/). However I don't need it and it disrupts my workflow (buttons present in the text input, like Telegram stickers, are now 1 row more distant from text input).
How can I disable it?
Thanks for the answers and the interest.
You can disable it by pressing the button on the left of all the words prediction, the one that you see in the picture, and it will be hidden.
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

Emoji android 10 not updated Answered-1 votes 1 commentSwiftKey is absurd at this point. It's been like 3 months since I got android 10 on my note 10. Have contacted support and communicated with them about the issue. It has still not been fixed. Emojis have no been updated for SwiftKey in Android 10. It says that it uses whatever emojis are available on the device, yet it's stuck still only using the android 9 emojis. Every other keyboard I have on my device uses the new emojis just fine. So they clearly can't figure it out. Support is absolutely useless on here.

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?
