Is there any way, like on the default iOS keyboard, to add a word, say "yt", which would automatically expand to YouTube?

Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) Respondida3 votos 11 comentarios
I'd hoped this issue would have been fixed by now but it appears that it's not a very popular problem, and so I've decided to take it upon myself to provide the correct information to get it looked at. I have found a few other forum posts with the exact same issue, so I hope this helps you all too.
Here is the required information;
- Huawei P20 Pro - EE network, UK
- Android 8.1.0: Huawei's EMUI build, version CLT-L09 22.214.171.124(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 126.96.36.199
- Steps to reproduce:
- When typing in the standard layout QWERTY keboard, if pressing the "123" key in the very bottom-left of the keyboard, immediately and swiftly followed by punctuation such as a question mark (on the symbol/number layout that appears), the keyboard acts as though the "enter" key in the very bottom-right of the symbol keyboard is pressed before the punctuation you selected, despite not pressing it at all. This means that a new line begins before your punctuation, and it shouldn't. For example, if attempting to quickly type the word "What?" on the keyboard, you will get this instead:
- I have added a link below to a screen-recording of the issue. In the video, you will see the "?" and the "enter" keys both light up as though both are being pressed, however only the "?" is actually being pressed. What you should see is "What?", there should not be a new line added before the "?". This happens with other punctuation also, but as the "?" is the most frequently used, I thought I'd go with that for the video.
- Link: https://vimeo.com/312434866
Importantly: This error does NOT happen if you restore the Swiftkey application to its original version via the Google Playstore. The issue only begins when updating the application, and so the bug must have inadvertently been included recently. I can't remember when the issue started, but it has been a few months and a handful of updates, and the issue still remains.
I hope this information is sufficient to locate and fix this bug, it's a real nut-ache for me as it happens 95% of the time I use punctuation after a word.

Old Phone to New Phone Android Respondida7 votos 34 comentarios
I'm struggling here to transfer from my Samsung 6 to the new Samsung 8 with all my predictions from the old phone. First I did a backup sync on my old phone, and then did a backup sync on my new S8. Nothing happened. Do I need to delete the app on my old phone? Dose anyone have an answer.
I will say that the tech support is very weak in regards to the response time, and information. I'm surprised being a Microsoft owned product that they don't offer better support as I have been waiting more than three days for my answer.
Thanks for your response
predictive emoji Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
I have tried and tried and searched high and low and still have not been able to disable the predictive Emoji feature. I cannot stand it. It makes editing a text or whatever I'm possible because if you touch the little gray box all the sudden you get a dozen pictures of dogs or cats or hats or whatever it is you typed in and they decided you would rather do it in pictures than in words. I am not a 14 year old little girl hanging out at the mall. None of the instructions that are available and none of the blogs or chat rooms or anything has any relevant instruction as to how to disable this feature. Even when I go into settings and think I have disabled it it still is not disabled. I do not want that little gray box around the word hat or cat or rat or dog or chair or anything like that. I just want to be able to type plain text. What am I doing wrong?
[Feature Request] Turn off flow trails Respondida5 votos 4 comentarios
I would like to able to turn off the trail in the flow feature. The trail that follows my finger from one key to the next, at least for me blocks the vision of the keyboard. I've used another keyboard that allows me to turn off the trail. I don't use that other keyboard because SwiftKey is better overall. I think it is best out there.
change emoji gender Respondida0 votos 18 comentarios
Okay how do i explain it. So, some of the emojis on my swiftkey keyboard are only male or female. For example ( 🤷) how do i pick the male one?
fyi i can see the male one when someone else is typing it.
Also, there's an option on gboard to pick it. I just don't like the keyboard. I prefer SwiftKey.
How can I disable incognito theme? Respondida7 votos 9 comentarios
I am not liking this new theme and how it automatically takes over my custom theme. I've been a big fan of SwiftKey, but this will force me to change keyboards. I absolutely do not like the layout change that happens. Please give an option to change.
Deactivate the GIF button Respondida2 votos 12 comentarios
Hi. I would like to know if there is a way to deactivate the GIF option. Not the emoji, just the GIF part. I keep sending the same gif over and over by mistake and it even finds its way into text messages making them MMS.
Is there anyway to deactivate this feature? Thank you
Adjustable keyboard wide for edge screen Respondida0 votos 5 comentarios
I'm old switkey user and I got new phone (s7e) with edge screen. Now I have problem, what on edge screen is margins. I know, what some user like this feature, but I don't. I have wide screen but I can't use all of them, because margins do not let. Could you make adjustable wide for edge screen and user could decide what he wants "with margins" or "without margins"
I tested full screen wide with "Swype" keyboard and I don't see any problems, what some symbols are on screen edge. Typing with wider keyboard is more comfortable.
How can I disable multilingual predictions? Respondida19 votos 38 comentarios
How can I disable the multilingual prediction feature (bug).
It is unwanted, uncalled fore, unnecessary, useless, counterproductive, counter-intuitive, and annoying.
Otherwise your app is awesome, until the next update (which hopefully will get rid of this feature) I will be switching to another keyboard, which is a shame.
Backspace after using "Flow" Respondida4 votos 7 comentarios
First of all, I'm used to inputting my texts with swype and Samsung stock keyboard, so I was surprised that SwiftKey doesn't offer an option that enables deleting entire words via one short tap on the backspace key after using the "Flow" method. Having to press the backspace continuously or repeatedly everytime "flow" doesn't recognize a word correctly really slows me down a lot, especially as I have more than just English active at the same time.
Besides it really doesn't make much sense to delete just a few letters at a time if "flow" didn't recognize the correct word in the first place.
Please do something about this!

[Not a bug] No prediction in Excel cells Respondida4 votos 39 comentarios
i've been using Swiftkey for a long time to edit spreadsheets in Excel for Android. After the last update (21/08 if i'm correct) the prediction words on the upper side of the swiftkey keyboard do not show up!
Before the update the prediction was working flawlessly when i was editing a cell. Did you change that on purpose or is it a bug. I hope it's just a bug because i need the predictions back!
[Main thread] GIF inserts as URL Respondida0 votos 49 comentarios
When I attempt to insert a GIF in a text message from the SwiftKey keyboard, it only inserts a URL to the GIF, not the GIF. This started happening after the latest big update (couple days now).
Why can't I insert a GIF when replying to a message? Respondida-1 votos 15 comentarios
When I reply to message and select a GIF I get prompted for the recipient as though it is a new message. This loses the recipient for the reply. This happens in all of my messaging apps. It doesn't happen with emojis. Why?
For the love of god, fast commas please! Respondida5 votos 2 comentarios
I have been using SwiftKey on Android for years, switched to iPhone a few days ago. Very unhappy with the ways comma work here. To insert a comma and a space after it, I have to hit the "special symbols" button, then comma, and then the space bar. Alternatively, I have to press and hold the "." key, then move to the comma, then hit space. That is 3 keystrokes, whereas in Android it only took one (you have the comma button on the default keyboard to the left of the space bar, and an empty space is automatically added once you hit it). Likewise, it is also annoying that no space is added after hitting the "." button, however at least this can be fixed by using a double-tap on the space bar to create the dot instead.
I understand SwiftKey is trying to imitate the way the native iOS keyboard works in this regard, but frankly, that setup is just horrible, so please at least give us the option to customize. A comma is a button that is too frequently required not to be on the main keyboard, and in at least 90% of cases, when you type a comma, you want an empty space behind it, so that really should be automatic.
SwiftKey not entering space after period (NOT Flow) Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
Longtime Android user just started using SwiftKey for iOS. Spaces are not being automatically added at end-of-sentence punctuation. I searched the forums and found this is not expected behavior for iOS.

How to disable Incognito mode Respondida4 votos 2 comentarios
Is there a way to completely disable the incognito mode of SwiftKey? It is extremely annoying and does not even know how to do voice to text and the layout and everything is drastically different. I end up having to get out of the application open up something like Microsoft Word, use SwiftKey to type what I wanr then do cut it and then paste it back into the original document because the incognito mode doesn't work very well.
Please tell me how to disable Incognito mode completely.

Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.
Make it easy for me to add.
One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.
