    Hi! I was a Windows Phone user for several years. Now, for obvious reasons, I'm back to Android.
    Was searching for the best keyboard for me, and the SwiftKey looked very promissing compared to alternatives. But the are some drawbacks that made me switch back to gboard.
    Regarding the cursor control there are two issues.
    First, is way too sensitive. It takes full concentration to put the cursor a to the exact position. And a slight move when releasing finger usually spoils the thing.
    Second, when working with multiple languages, it takes too long to activate cursor control. And again, it you failed to keep your finger deadly at place, it will activate language switch. Even if I release without making a side move, language is still changed, what is awkward.
    Overall impression is that you'd better take all the best from competitors and make improvements, than be different in every aspect.
    If you're interested, I'll share other particular suggestions.

    I'm a long time user of SwiftKey, even pre-Microsoft days. I use the cursor arrows and switched to the spacebar cursor control hoping to free up some screen space by removing the keyboard cursor arrows. However, after a month of using the spacebar cursor control I went back to the arrows just because it has more control and is faster to use.

    I don't really understand how this works. My cursor stays in the same place even though the graphic for the cursor appears. I don't understand the feature? Is there a video that shows how to use it? I can't really see the use for it when you can just tap the field and move the cursor. This is only for a dialog box, correct?

    Hi Nancy Bach you can find a video here: How do I use Cursor Control on my Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard? – SwiftKey Support - do you not get this when you activate cursor control?

    We need a way to adjust the speed. The cursor moves a bit too fast for my liking, yet if it is too slow (which it is NOT too slow at this time) then it will take forever to edit something in the beginning of a long URL for example.

    A speed control slider would be ideal, otherwise slowing down the speed by like 10% would be perfect for me (but every individual has a different ideal speed.)

    Sao không làm một phím chức năng có phím mũi tên, chọn, cắt, sao chép, dán, xóa giống Google.

    I submitted a video offering two improvements that Microsoft would make in order to improve the functionality of SwiftKey Cursor Control:

    https://flipgrid.com/s/YX5Uj_N1PjpM

    Please be sure that someone approves the response video so that it is officially visible on the main Flipgrid Cursor Control page.

    Lamarr Otems  - I made a similar suggestion regarding the speed to which the cursor moves in my video submission!

    Thank you.

    Hi @... - thank you for the follow-up!  I actually did submit a request using the form you referenced.  I have an e-mail from June 18 confirming that I did submit a request.  The title of my submission is "Addition of Delete, Undo, Redo, and Other Text Editing Features".  Here's the link to my request:

    https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/requests/326450

    Thank you for approving my comment and I hope the team can implement my suggestion!

    I'm with Rom Sem on this. The cursor control slider is way too sensitive. A slider to control its speed would be nice or try to match Gboard's cursor speed.

    Usually I want to move my cursor by one or two characters, otherwise I just click a new location in my text box.  As is mentioned repeatedly in this thread, the current implementation as far too sensitive. Not only does it require great attention to move a small amount, the care must be applied to release of the space bar to avoid another character jump. Not surprisingly this is quite frustrating when attempting to move a single character.

    Instead of a sensitivity slider bar in the options, I'd suggest it be treated as a repeated arrow key, and the farther you slide from your initial point, the shorter the time between cursor adjustments.  As a comparison, just hold a cursor key down on your keyboard. The first step has a pause after it before the speed jumps up and the cursor moves at a continuous, faster rate.

    Hi @... - as Zabto recommended - I made a similar recommendation (as well as additional recommendations for functions such as undo, redo, cut, copy, paste; having arrow keys in the toolbar as opposed to at the bottom of the keyboard).  Please see my comments from several months ago.  In each - I referenced links to a video suggestion that I submitted (which is here: https://flipgrid.com/s/YX5Uj_N1PjpM) and the to the following submission: "Addition of Delete, Undo, Redo, and Other Text Editing Features".  Here's the link to my request: https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/requests/326450)

     

    I can assure you that IF/WHEN Microsoft implements the suggestions regarding text editing features in the above request link - I WILL HAVE NO ISSUE WITH MAKING SWIFTKEY THE ONLY KEYBOARD THAT I USE on my devices (both Android and iOS-based) 😉

    Or require a press+hold to activate a carat/cursor button then slide a direction. 

    Anything so that I'm not accidentally hitting the button and moving my cursor into the previous word.

    +1 on all the sensitivity comments. Cursor control is a great feature and I tried getting used to it but it is extremely sensitive and very difficult to put the cursor in a specific place between letters (which would be its main use). Please add a sensitivity control to make it more manageable. Thanks!
