Handwriting Text Msg Note 20 Ultra Respondida0 votos 2 comentariosI owned a Note 3 & Note 8 while exclusively using SwiftKey as my keyboard. I had no issues using my S Pen to write text messages. All I had to do was hover over the text input bar and a small circle with the letter "T" in it would appear. Tapping on it would switch the keyboard to a blank section to write in. WHY IS THIS FEATURE GONE??? 😡 Why is your support team telling other users it's not a feature? It was there!!! I want to know why it was removed? I've been using SwiftKey for YEARS and this has seriously put my loyalty in jeopardy!!!
Still having problems with voice-to-text Respondida-1 votos 1 comentario
My initial post about this got marked as "answered" without the issue being resolved, so I'd like to try to ask again. I very regularly use the voice-to-text feature in Swiftkey, almost as much as the keyboard itself. About a week and a half ago, one of the main features I use seems to have disappeared. There was a functionality when using the voice-to-text where you could tap on a word produced by the voice-to-text an it would pop up a small list of other things that word may have been. This was extremely useful since it made it easy to correct mistakes. Now that feature seems to no longer be available. Does anyone know of a way to get this feature back? It's a big enough deal to me that if it's gone for good I'm not sure Swiftkey is for me anymore. Thanks!
Please update Cantonese Jyutping Input for Android Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
I think Swiftkey is a great keyboard on Android but it is lagging far away behind its main competitor Gboard when it comes to Chinese Cantonese Jyutping Input Method. After testing the keyboard for about a week, here is my observations :
1) It doesn't memorize new words.
2) While typing a sentence some very basic words won't appear on the "word suggestions". Simply put it's like the predictive text isn't working are isn't working consistently.
3) I also realize that a lots of characters are missing
I am using Swiftkey for Android and I have decided to use another keyboard for the moment since I just can't use the Cantonese Input on Swiftkey.
Is there a chance that the team behind update the keyboard fixing all these issues? I really enjoy using Swiftkey in general. Thank you

Request to add Iranian Azerbaijani Turkish language (known as: تۆرکجه) Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
First of all, let me say that swiftkey is a great keyboard.👌
I ask the swiftkey agents to add "Iranian Azerbaijani Turkish language" to the keyboard. (also known as "آذربایجان تۆرکجهسی" or "تۆرکجه")🤍
This language has at least 22 million speakers in Iran and also it has other speakers outside of Iran.
(This language is on the Google keyboard, We would be very happy if you add this language to the swiftkey program.)
Thanks a lot 🙏🌹
IMPORTANT KEYBOARD FEATURES MISSING Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
The following important keyboard features are missing or can not be controlled at all.
- Auto Space after Punctuation
- Spell Checker without Auto Correct enabled
- Writing Java Code is a nightmare because bit automatically changes symbols and spacing.
- The symbols Keyboard is absolutely disgusting 🤢 it doesn't follow regular qwerty standards.
- Important Symbols for writing are missing, like Dot Points for lists. hence the >(-) symbol
▪️ I'm an Emoji Dot Point
▪️ The accented characters only show 1 alternate characters
▪️ The AUTO SPELLING CORRECTION can not work out the 1 letter misspelt in a word could be a similar word, it's the basics of a mobile keyboard.
- The "System Spell Checker" option in Android 10 is not available until installing Gboard
- Users must Install Gboard and Disable it to utilise this application properly, on mu Huawei P30 Pro, I have no Gboard installed by default making it impossible to use the Android System Spell Checker in conjunction with Swift.
- The clipboard manager has no option for how long it should store clips, it just deletes them after you copy 4 or 5 things to the clipboard.
- Emoji Search is missing, something in nearly every keyboard on Android has available.
- The Emoji Screen is very old from Android 2.3 days, making selection very difficult and time consuming.
- The keyboard has Incognito Mode, something that scares users when it should be called " Low Telemetry Mode"

Voice-to-text has gotten worse suddenly Respondida3 votos 16 comentarios
It seems like in the last few days my voice-to-text feature has gotten significantly worse. I don't know if this is a Swiftkey thing or a Google thing, but it started happening a few days ago after my phone installed an update and updated a bunch of apps at the same time. The interface looks a bit different, and there are a few significant changes:
- The timeout when I stop talking has drastically decreased, to the point where if I hesitate even a tiny bit between words it stops listening.
- The guesses it makes are often way off, where before they were very reliable
- There was previously a feature where I could tap on a predicted word, and it would bring up a list of other guesses for the word, which was extremely useful when it got something wrong, but it doesn't appear to do that anymore.
- Previously I could hit backspace to delete the last word and it would stay in listening mode, now hitting backspace makes it stop listening.
I use the voice-to-text a ton, so if it's really this broken now it's sort of a dealbreaker for me with Swiftkey, which would be a bummer since I've really liked it up until now. Has anyone else experienced this change recently and found a way to fix it? For reference, I have a Samsung Galaxy s10 with fully updated OS and app. Thanks!

Problem with apparent multiple key touches Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
Lately I can't type anything any more because the keyboard thinks I'm touching two letters at once and inputs both of them, even though it makes no sense. It used to work very well, now I have to touch exactly the middle of each key every time. Please fix it or revert to the previous version.

Swiftkey paste from clipboard in numeric field Respondida0 votos 7 comentarios
I noticed a very annoying thing in Swiftkey keyboard Android. I cannot use clipboard in a field that accepts only digits. The keyboard hides the "+" button so I can't use the clipboard on it.
However, when using other keyboards (e.g. Chrooma), I can paste on the same field from the clipboard.
Anyone came across the same issue? please help, this been annoying me for a long time.
Swiftkey board not working with Twitter Respondida0 votos 8 comentarios
This is a recurring problem that happens following updates of Twitter, Swiftkey or both. When going to write a tweet the keyboard appears but then immediately disappears (0.1 second). I am forced to switch to the normal keyboard. I have a Samsung S21 Ultra with Android 11. This has been happening on and off for years, with different phones and versions of Android. I see other people have had the same experience. Twitter is the only thing this happens with. Please find why and fix, thanks.

Missing Emojis Respondida2 votos 5 comentariosHowdy-Doo Everybody Has anybody else noticed they're missing some emojis? I have lost an entire page in actual fact, the one entitled "Symbols." The header that takes you to it remains at the top but it is entirely devoid of, you've guessed it, SYMBOLS. It's the one that contains things like ❓❔⁉️❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🔈🔉🔊🎵🎶🎼☢️☣️ ⬆️↗️➡️↘️⬇️❎✅0️⃣1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣6️⃣7️⃣8️⃣9️⃣🔟🏧 Here's the madness, I just had to switch to Gboard to type all of those, so they're obviously not completely gone from my phone. Can anyone help me out, I find myself switching to Gboard more and more, and actually remaining on it, soon I'll not be using SwiftKey at all, and I really don't want that to happen. It's the keyboard that really genuinely knows me, how and what I type, it I can be quite the emoji heavy comment on social media, so I cannot go on with this huge chunk missing, and who's to say that's not just the first page to go; a whole damn page man. Please help me people, please get hold of this business Microsoft SwiftKey Dudes!!! Written using the wonderful product by "Gboard."❗❕❗❕❗❕❗❕❗

Typing errors Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioSomething seems to have happened to my personal way of typing AI. It is typing the wrong letters so the heat map that has been generated to compensate for my mistakes seems to have moved. I have used SwiftKey since long before it was Microsoft and it has always learn my way of missing keys and has worked as intended. However now I am hitting the keys but it thinks I'm not. How can I reset this without resetting the dictionary? I only found a button to delete all data. Thx for help (took me way to long having to correct everything my SwiftKey is really being stupid)
Azerty layout Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioHello, Great keyboard. Been using it for years. Just one thing in AZERTY layout that is annoying me for all these years is the position of the quote next to the character 'n'. It's the number 1 reason I keep on making typos with this keyboard. Is it possible to place the quote symbol elsewhere and use the new free space to spread the last row of characters evenly across the line. Or make it an option? Thank you. Grz, Dirk Mangelschots

Predictions are missing Respondida-2 votos 5 comentarios
About a week ago, I noticed that all my "learned" predictions disappeared (while the dictionary predictions are still there). When I log in to https://data.swiftkey.com/, I see that all the data is still there (backup & sync is turned on).
The Swiftkey App was updated about a week ago. It might have something to do with this latest update. Has anyone experienced the same? Is there a solution?
Is there a way to turn off learning or turn off personal words? Respondida-1 votos 1 comentario
The keyboard is very good, I love using it very much but the keyboard remembers what you say and uses your words to remember like if you misspelt something over and over it will remember and start to suggest it even when it is wrong. Is there an option to turn off learning or turn off personal words forever instead of clearing it over and over? Thank you.
