Arrows key position15 votos 19 comentarios

Delete downloaded themes1 voto 1 comentario
I'd like to delete some themes I don't want so that when I look at the ones I own in the "yours" list I'd only see the ones I want to use. Isn't there a way to hard press to delete a theme in my downloads? Even if they take up little space, it's quicker not to have to scroll through themes.

How can I edit/remove menu bar0 votos 0 comentariosI've recently updated the app and really dislike the new menu bar. I have zero need to use a language translator or bing. Or a big history of things I've copy and pasted before. It's annoying as I keep catching it when typing. Is there anyway to get rid of these functions? I'd rathe have emicons and gifs as we're there before. I'm on the verge of deleting the app and finding one that isn't full of useless functions.

Swiftkey suddenly started capitalizing first letters even though that setting is disabled.3 votos 4 comentarios
I use SwiftKey on Android since almost the beginning. I'm pretty used to it and have found my preferred way of setting it up.
One of the settings I like is the option to not capitalize words automatically. When I chat I mostly prefer not to start with capital letters unless the conversation is formal or professional.
Since maybe a week ago, some (not all) of the words predicted in Spanish are being capitalized automatically and it's annoying. This doesn't happen with all the words, but it must have been a mistake in a language update or something similar (I didn't manually update of change anything in the app during the last month).
I tried enabling the feature and disabling it again but it didn't solve the problem.
Option to make the prediction bar taller0 votos 0 comentarios
Hi. I really like SwiftKey, I've been using it for 10 years. I like how it is design to optimize the writing speed in spite of human errors.
I'm going to report an issue that has been happening to me for years, and it's caused by human error, not by app design, but considering the concept of the app, I think this should be taken into account.
I write using the prediction bar, always, I only use the spacebar when I'm writing a new word that I don't want autocorrected. Very often while typing fast I press by mistake whatever is on the top of the prediction. It seems that the prediction bar is too short and it causes many different problems: If I'm writing in GMail, it moves the cursor to the end of the text (after the signature), if I'm on Google Sheets it makes me touch the symbols that are on the bottom of the screen, and in other apps it opens the sticker list.
I tried changing the size of the keyboard and it helps, but my problem is not with the size of the keys but with the size of the prediction bar. I would like to have an option to make the prediction bar taller without affecting the size of the keys. Another idea would be to add a small space on top of the keyboard. This could all be optional.
I also tried forcing myself to not tap so high, but after literally a decade of repeating the problem I'm contacting you for help.

Swiftkey recently started to change my text into junk when I'm correcting myself0 votos 0 comentarios
All autocorrects turned off, wasn't happening few months before. Sample - write sentence "That would be". Put cursor after word "would", start deleting letter by letter. When there's only "That w be" remaining, text suddenly changes to "Thatul be". If I try to correct such cases (especially in longer sentences), usually I'm getting some other meaningless replacement, to the point where I'm unable to correct at all without rewriting everything from the end. That's insane.
Further in the sample, autocomplete options still show choices "wouldn't would would be". If I select "would", final sencence becomes "Thatuld be". Which looks like replacement indexes are getting corrupted, in addition to the autocorrect which had to not happen at all.

Ability to use censored gifs1 voto 0 comentarios
I realize that you want to try to keep everyone happy, but we should be able to use adult orientated gifs. As an adult, I am fully capable of knowing when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. A toggle that is turned off by default, but to allow us to turn them on would be great. Right now, I have to switch between keyboards to use them, which is obviously not the solution that I should have to use. Especially with such a great tool as this is :).

Volume output of your support videos0 votos 0 comentarios
Some of your support videos have very low PLAYBACK VOLUME for their soundtrack. Please update to make them a bit louder by playing them back on a device like this ANDROID PHONE. MAKE SURE THE VIDEO'S PLAYBACK CLEARLY, AND AND LOUD ENOUGH TO BE EASILY HEARD. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME AND ASSISTANCE IN FIXING THE LOW VOLUME PLAYBACK PROBLEM IN SOME OF YOUR INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS. NOTE! I LINKED A BLUETOOTH SOUNDBAR TO THIS PHONE SO I COULD HEAR THE LOW VOLUME IN SOME IF THE VIDEOS. THE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER DIDN'T HELP THE LOW VOLUME PROBLEM EITHER.
Voice feedback for selections.-1 votos 0 comentarios
Why doesn't the Swiftkey APP have a selection to give voice feedback to selections if wanted? if you WHEN I hit a button. For example; if I hit the button for Resize. Have a selectable voice say"RESIZE". If I hit the button for Themes. I Then a selectable voice would say:Themes. In the support dialog your APP would have the ability to read back what I wrote if needed plus noting OPTIONS SET/SELECTED. I'd like to be able to set up Swiftkey to tell me the setting selected, and the options I set per options set for level of verbosity. I have a vision impairment problem. That makes reading in some cases difficult to very difficult. There should be an option to set this in the SETTINGS, and an option to set LEVEL of VERBOSITY . IF YOU REPLY IS REQUESTED FOR THIS QUESTION TO Lightsttn1@AO.com
Adding stickers to collection0 votos 0 comentariosI'm new to this so sorry if there is a really easy fix! I have been gifted some stickers which I'm trying to add to my collection. They show in my phone's camera roll (Google Pixel 2) but when I come to pin they aren't there. I've tried with both SwiftKey & Beta but still struggling. Am I missing an option to choose album/ location instead of just clicking on the camera icon? TIA! 😁

[ISSUE] Tapping bottom half of space bar inserts double space0 votos 0 comentarios
When I tap the bottom half of the space bar it inserts a double space, but tapping the top half inserts a single space. Also, this applies to the comma key. This is really annoying as it interrupts my typing and I can't find a way to turn this off or fix this.
I use the regular (non-beta) swiftkey app on Samsung Galaxy S10 with Android 10.
Change case sensitive of already typed text Respondida3 votos 5 comentarios
I've just changed from Windows Phone to Android and installed the Swiftkey keyboard.
On Windows Phone, if I wanted to switch a text or a whole message to upper or lower cases, I just selected all the text or the specific word and pressed the up arrow (that handles upper or lower) and it was converted. I checked that on Android I can convert the word pressing space after it. Can you please add this funcionality to it? It's a better and fast way to do it...
