I use Swiftkey Beta with English and Tamil languages. When I type in English, Swiftkey is predicting words in both English and Tamil. Most of the word prediction in Tamil is nonsensical. Can I change the Swiftkey setting so when I type in English, I only get English word prediction? This change is leading to so much error.

Switching keyboards Respondida4 votos 12 comentarios
Is there a button that allows you to easily switch keyboards? I use another keyboard for programming and would like to switch between the two. The programming keyboard and a few others (gboard) you can hold the spacebar to list all of your keyboards if you can add this feature if such does not yet exist. Thanks!

Auto correct breaking up words5 votos 12 comentarios
Auto correct breaks up words requiring additional editing. Can you fix this, really annoying!
To replicate, switch off auto correct on space bar, then type edot. Then touch the word. This will place cursor in the middle of the word. Then select one of the suggestions from the top of the keyboard (Eg edit or editor) . That will put a suggested word followed by ot (eg edit ot). So the letters on the right from the cursor are kept unchanged and have to be deleted!? This is almost never what the user wants.
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!

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.

Can't Restore my Data, and I'm logged in1 voto 11 comentarios
It's almost 2 months now.. I had to reset my phone, and now all my prescriptions and data are not syncing.
I checked my account data on the website, and it still there. I tried logging out of my account on the app, I tried deleting it and reinstalling, I've tried many things.
I've noticed that is no one is answering nor replying to everyone who is facing this problem.. I really really hope this is not permanent.. I've been using this keyboard since 2012! Imagine losing all that!
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 18.104.22.168(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 22.214.171.124
- 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.

Add this function of cut copy paste and select-all by sliding the finger from numberkey to X, C, V and A respectively.
This would be really really helpful and would be the best update till date that saves a lot of time of the user.
Release the updates as soon as possible.

Edit personal dictionary0 votos 11 comentarios
I only downloaded SwiftKey because GBoard won't read my personal dictionary every time my phone restarts so I have to delete data and reset all my preferences every time I buy phone turns on. But since you don't have a personal dictionary or shortcuts or anything like that I will be deleting this keyboard right away.

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!
Jumpy cursor1 voto 11 comentarios
Hi.. Just got a new note 8. Downloaded the latest swiftkey version. Unfortunately, the cursor is VERY jumpy while typing and the keyboard seems like it's hyper sensitive compared to using it on my old note 5. Any progress with these issues?any way to tone down the sensitivity? I'm a big fan of SwiftKey, but it's nearly un-usable because of the jumpy cursor and sensitivity :(

[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian6 votos 11 comentarios
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.
