Is there any shortcut to Switch Between Languages? Every time I have to go to settings to select required Language. Very Lengthy Process.

SwiftKey does not respect autocapitalize attribute in HTML input tag Respondida5 votos 6 comentarios
SwiftKey does not automatically turn off the capitalization on HTML input tags which feature autocapitalize=off. That is very annoying, many web apps use this to prevent unwanted automatic capitalization on certain inputs. SwiftKey ignores this.
See https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/04/autocapitalize for details.
New toolbar introduced, how can I hide or disable it? (2020) Respondida5 votos 9 comentarios
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.
Problems with SwiftKey keyboard placement and OnePlus Gesture Navigation Respondida5 votos 10 comentarios
Hi - I have a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android v10, set up for gesture control. As such, I no longer have any navigation buttons on the bottom of my display.
I am having a big problem with SwiftKey, where the keyboard can't be moved to the bottom of my display:
Aside from losing valuable screen real estate, this causes a lot of SwiftKey failures for me.
For example, If I am trying to type with the space bar, or enter key (or, any of the bottom keys), and accidentally hit just a little bit lower than the bottom row key, SwiftKey registers it as a "close keyboard" event, and I lose whatever I was typing. This is a HUGE pain in the rear!
Please update SwiftKey to allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen when the user has selected a gesture navigation method. Note that there are multiple manufacturers that have their own version of gesture navigation (like OnePlus), so the solution should be generic enough to detect that any gesture navigation implementation will allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen.
Backspace after using "Flow" Respondida5 votos 11 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 Respondida5 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!
Why is a word I delete repeatedly predicted? Respondida5 votos 12 comentarios
When I type "god" the primary prediction is "God" but 99% of the time I am not evoking the Christian god, I am not using the word as a proper noun. I've deleted this prediction dozens and dozens of times but it's always the primary prediction,and though it does show "god" on the left prediction it means I have to press it to get it to say what I want when I should just be able to hit space and move on. Is there a fix for this?
Microphone Size and Placement Respondida5 votos 1 comentario
Thanks for a sweet keyboard!
I was wondering if you could place the microphone in a more convenient position or maybe make it easier to tap. I haven't once tapped that dang thing without tapping all around it.

[Feature Request] Turn off flow trails Respondida5 votos 6 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.

And yes app has been reinstalled.
Autocorrect corrects numbers Respondida4 votos 8 comentariosHello. My name is Tim.There was a problem while using the swiftkey keyboard app. In the moments when I use continuous printing, when I move my finger across the screen from letter to letter, if there are some numbers and do not indent from them, the keyboard considers it necessary to correct the numbers.Why does the keyboard do this?This needs to be corrected, since it is unacceptable for the application to understand something in ttsiyars, it cannot be assumed that there is a number 1, then it can be corrected by 2, because it will be better in the opinion of the application. Also, it is unacceptable for the application to memorize a number in addition to new words, and does not offer digital options.Attaching a video confirmation.
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.
Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) Respondida4 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 184.108.40.206(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 220.127.116.11
- 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.

Can't easily capitalize a word after writing Respondida4 votos 2 comentarios
There seems to be a bug with the Shift key after SWIPING a word. If I swipe a word, the cursor sits at the end of the word. Usually when the cursor is at the end of the word you can press the SHIFT key and the prediction menu will give you an option to change the word to the capitalized version.
However, if you press the SHIFT key after swiping, instead SwiftKey inserts a space. The SHIFT key is a modifying key and should never add a space. You currently have to push the BACK key, then the SHIFT, then you can select the capitalized Breton of the word
Please fix this.
Cannot remove word prediction Respondida4 votos 17 comentarios
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,

How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Respondida4 votos 7 comentarios
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance
Is there a way to have a .com button? Respondida4 votos 12 comentarios
Hi there - I miss having the smart and handy .com key that I believe comes with stock Android. Is there a way to add it to the SwiftKey layout? It's pretty annoying that everytime I want to type .com I get a space and capitalized C after the period. A one-touch .com key would be fantastic!
Number Pad Layout Respondida4 votos 3 comentarios
I would like an option in the settings to display the number pad with 123 starting at the bottom instead of at the top. It is more natural for me. I also find that I make critical errors in typing numbers because the 123 starts at the top.
Could you please add this feature in the next update.
Delete Options [suggestion] Respondida4 votos 7 comentarios
I've recently switched to Swiftkey because I'm having some problems with Gboard. The one major thing I miss from that, however, is its wonderfully simple and intuitive 'gesture delete' function. You should really, REALLY check it out to see why it's so much better than just pressing and holding the del key and hoping you can release it in time to avoid deleting more than you wanted to. This is particularly important on a system like Android that doesn't offer any ctrl-z type undo options. All you do is swipe left off the del key until the text you want to delete is highlighted, then release to perform the delete. If you swipe too far you just have to slide back towards the del key a bit first. Simple!
I also find it mightily frustrating that the last word entered by flow typing can't be deleted with a single tap on the del key. That's how every other 'swipe' type keyboard app I've tried works and it seems pretty obvious to me it's how it should be. I realize this has been asked before and rejected, but I'd urge you to reconsider and at least make it an option.

Two simple design flaws which want me to replace SwiftKey Respondida4 votos 12 comentarios
I am using SwitfKey for a long time, but desperatly want to switch to mostly any other keyboard software, because since years, there are two catastrophic design flaws in the app, which could be solved in minutes of programming time:
1) The optional numeric bar just shows the numbers 1 to 0, and has no second layout... why! Every keyboard on this planet has easy access to ! for example on number key 1, but not SwiftKey
2) For Germany layout, it is catastrophic to access most important keys like ö ä ü ß in SwiftKey. For example: if you hold key u, the default selection is "<" instead of "ü" ... WHY!!! This is the most annoying thing for German customers.
Please change default selection for uoa to üöä.
Give easy and fast access to !?ß. The access through . is a mess and breaks usage flaw on normal keyboards.
Give option to manipulate the key layout and change keys you want to have.
