Hi, is it possible to change languages manually? When I have two or more languages together (i have Czech, English and French) and use flow, the resulting words of the flow gesture tend to be wrong often (a lot). Even if i use only Czech and English which is necessary in my every day life it is not working well. I would appreciate manual language switching as was possible in the past. Also separate personal dictionaries would be implied.(added words)

[FEATURE REQUEST] Make the space bar bigger!!4 votos 5 comentarios
I see so many requests to make the spacebar bigger to eliminate the problem with accidentally hitting the period but yet no response or fix from Swiftkey, so I thought I would add on a post. I really want to love Swiftkey and keep switching back to it every couple of weeks but then that darn period problem annoys me so much that I end up quickly switching to another keyboard. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Can barely type anymore.4 votos 10 comentarios
When I'm typing on another forum the keys have stopped working properly and even when I tap the prediction words it puts in other things. Often pressing spacebar pus in letters like T randomly. Just now trying to type T with a period after wouldn't let me.
It's seems most problematic on that site.
Bluetooth External Keyboard - Multiple languages4 votos 7 comentarios
As a language student, I have a need to type in multiple languages (five, to be exact), though I'm having trouble with my external Bluetooth keyboard. Though I can change the prediction language to Russian or Korean, I can't actually type the characters (remains typing with a US layout when I'd really like to be typing in the language I've changed to).
The German letter Eszett needs its own dedicated key4 votos 2 comentarios
It's great that the QWERTZ (extended) layout has dedicated keys for Ä,Ö, and Ü, but there should definitely be a "ß" key (Eszett) as well. It's a common letter, and it's really cumbersome that you can only type it by longpressing the letter "S". There's enough space to add "ß" as well.

No way to create a slide up/down effect for Android?4 votos 2 comentarios
I always asked myself why SwiftKey keyboard doesn't show up and hide in an elegant way and now even more when we have Nougat/Oreo with beautiful screen transitions, material design, etc.
Isn't possible to elaborate a sliding effect just like iPhone and even the Samsung default keyboard?
After testing other keyboards in the last days, I just realized that, although this is something minor, it's the type of thing that makes usability more pleasant, more fluid, smooth. So much better than just appearing and disappearing suddenly.
Don't know if it's something thought to reproduce in lower end phones, but could be something available in settings at least.

How to disable multi lingual keyboard?4 votos 10 comentarios
I really love this keyboard.. The thing that drawing me out of using it was the multi lingual typing, if I choose English & Malayalam. The two languages clubbed together in one instance. I had terrible experience with that. Because, somany mistakes occur as both languages were live. So could you kindly give an option to use English keyboard, when using Native language. Thank you.

Accidental period4 votos 1 comentario
I concurr with the accidental input of the period which is extremely annoying. What about double tapping the space bar as option for a period which would disable at the same time the period button but leave the option for the 3 other punctuations? Just a thought.

Can't remove learned suggestions in Japanese input mode4 votos 9 comentarios
To remove incorrectly learned suggested words in English input mode, such as misspellings, long pressing the suggestion from the prediction bar correctly gives the option to remove that word.
However, when in Japanese input mode, long pressing a suggestion simply inputs the text of that suggestion.
Is there any way to individually remove incorrect suggestions in Japanese input mode?

SwiftKey Japanese flick4 votos 3 comentarios
I'm a diehard SwiftKey user and I frequently type in Japanese. I hate Romaji keyboards and I'm forced to use Google Japanese Input, the problem with that is their keyboard is small, especially the qwerty keyboard, which I use for quickly typing English when I'm mostly using Japanese, and typing in English on Google Japanese Input is painful, it can only predict words as you start to type them, correctly, it can't fix your typos... I miss keys a lot, SwiftKey is a life saver. Why in the world is there no flick input for Japanese? It already has the dictionary and kanji from the romaji keyboard, I've seen rumors dated around 2014 about a flick keyboard scouring the internet. What do I have to do to get a good keyboard?

Chinese and Japanese type do not learn words4 votos 1 comentario
When I type in Chinese and Japanese, SwiftKey does not really learn the slang words that I typed. It's a bit frustrating
Unwanted comma's4 votos 21 comentarios
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.
Semicolon and other less common punctuation4 votos 8 comentarios
I saw someone else half address this, but whenever I try to add a semicolon after using flow input I get a space been the last word and the punctuation. If I want to use a semicolon or make my own made-up-phrase, I either have to backspace the last letter of what I've swiped (flowed) so it knows to look at what comes next as individual characters, or use the arrow keys to back up after hitting that semicolon and backspace spaces. Same applies to hyphenated words or series of words, but there's no reason to have the semicolon/colon/hyphen or dash not but the end of the preceding word. Particularly with the semicolon. I tend to like my punctuation as a way to fragment what would be a run on sentence and other areas where it would be appropriate but SwiftKey wants there to be space on either side of the ";" character or when using hyphenations. It should always hug the word to the left like a comma would; this range is same idea applies to full-on commas as well: it wants to have a space on either side instead of jumping back to the end of the last word like typing a period would. Why not give some (slightly) more obscure punctuation and symbols the period and comma treatment where after flowing a word it auto-spaces, but if a period, comma, or second space is input next that keyboard will smartly insert the formatting and punctuation before the auto-space between words.
Another hiccup I have that's always a fight is, for example, I want to list a file extension, SwiftKey will fight me to the pain several times in a row to not have it try to reformat that section to a URL.
It's to the point that I will flow a word, [backspace], [backspace], retype last letter of word and then long-pressing the "n" key for my semicolon to be in the proper place.
Side note:if the keyboard has to autocorrect the second half of a hyphenated word or expression it will add a space between the hyphen and the word it fixed looking like "blahblib- blahblah", assuming it had to fix my 'blahblah' for me, when the goal was "blahblib-blahblah".
SwiftKey is still hands down the most robust, well-rounded keyboard and I want you guys to continue to dig in your heels, keep pushing the envelope, and retain that innovation and magic autocorrect advantage without it getting too bogged down and keep it first time user friendly!
Keep up the stellar work guys!
Also if you wanted to add gravy it'd be nice to have a way to flow on a larger screen (5.5" on my Pixel XL) when I'm manipulating the phone entirely with one hand without totally scrunching up the keyboard with the one-handed layout.
