SwiftKey doesn't work on Samsung Respondida1 voto 2 comentariosI have found a Google thread where many people have the same problem with s10+ and s20+, I'm using a A71. The issue shows when the Android OS is in another language than the default language on the keyboard. This issue make the language on the SwiftKey only work in English. It can't detect any other languages. At least the Swedish. Ive tried to contact Google, but they can't help me. What can I do? Right now I can't use SwiftKey in my own language.
Can I clean up my data and migrate it from my Google account to my Microsoft Account? Respondida1 voto 2 comentarios
I see a lot of issues here being blamed on using a Google account so figured it would be a good idea to switch over to my MS account whilst upgrading my phone. When I log out of my Google account in the app, it wipes all my data so I can't log in and sync with my MS account. There's an option to export my data which I can clean up using a json editor but no option to import it back in.
I switched over to SwiftKey from Swype (which I'd been using on my Symbian phone) a decade ago and being a Brit company I've been evangelical with my support for the app over the years. It has always managed to stay ahead of or at least keep up with the curve. However, over the last couple of years, it is increasingly playing catchup. I only notice the gap when upgrading my phone and having to temporarily use Gboard or Samsung Keyboard. With all the data you have collated and MS's AI knowledge hopefully you can shake off the cobwebs and get back on track or maybe next time, we'll stick with the default keyboard. Oh, the irony!

How to get rid of new input method choice button / empty space Respondida1 voto 1 comentario
I do't know for what reason, but my android keyboard suddenly had an extra row at the bottom. Contained within it is an input selection button (bottom left), a massive blank space(waste of space) and a keyboard off down-arrow (right). I would like to remove this row but cant find an option. I even uninstalled reinstalled the app and it's still there so presume it appeared as part of an update. It makes typing harder due to having to reach over the empty space. Picture below.
Parkinson's disease support. Respondida1 voto 4 comentariosIs there a way to turn off swipe entry and gesture navigation? Also, can the keyboard enter typed input without any physical contact. That's creepy. All of these are very annoying and will mean that I can no longer use the smartphone if Google forces these changes these radical UI changes on me! Please I need it for emergencies. It already took me over 20 m minutes to make this post. I'm desperate!

Getting used to SwiftKey - Basic features - Capitalization, Word Selection, More Suggestions, Compositing, Shortcuts Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm somewhat new to SwiftKey, as I have used Swype in the past. Even after it has been discontinued, it stayed on my old phone until now. Now, with a new Galaxy S10 (running Android 9), I tried the newest version of SwiftKey from the Play Store, but I feel like I'm missing out on how to use/find basic features, so I have to ask for a little help. :)
So, what I'm looking for:
- How can I increase the number of word suggestions from my swiping? I type in different languages simultaneously, so having only three suggestions means that I have to delete the word that I just swiped and swipe it again if the word I intentioned wasn't suggested (as there are more words available that I could have meant). Having more options to choose from (by scrolling the suggestion/prediction bar), makes the workflow a lot better and quicker.
- How can I capitalize a word that I just typed, especially when it's not in the dictionary yet? Currently, I have to go the text, go delete the first character, use the shift key, type the first character again. Again, that's bad workflow, so I'm looking for the key/shortcut/gesture to just capitalize the current/last word.
- How can I extend the current word? Say, I want to write "SwiftKey" but the keyboard doesn't know the word yet. Right now, I have to swipe both words, resulting in "swift" and "key". Now I have to capitalize both words (or press the shift key beforehand), go back to the text, delete the space inbetween them, put the cursor at the end of the text and continue. Again, really bad workflow. How can I, after swiping "Swift" make sure that the word gets extended by the next word I swipe?
- Bonus question: Are there keyboard shortcuts for selecting the current word, all text (ctrl-a, basically) as well as copy, cut and paste or navigating through the text via cursors?
Thanks in advance for your help, everyone! :)
Edit: Uh, also: How to write German and English quotation marks instead of inch signs? How to write a long dash? (QWERTZ extended)

Tenho um LG G4 h818p dourado e ao fazer uma digitação, logo fica com zoom na tela toda e as teclas ao digitar não são as correspondentes. A tela nas bordas fica com uma linha laranja. Com o teclado padrão isso não acontece.
I have a LG G4 h818p gold and when typing, it soon gets zoomed in on the whole screen and the keys when typing are not the corresponding ones. The screen at the edges is orange. With the standard keyboard this does not happen.
