    In my language (Thai), 95% of the time don't add space after dot. This make me very frustrated. I have to use this because I don't know any other kb thay can add 3 languages that i use at the same time.

    How to disable auto space after each period?
    It's frustrating, when writing an email, website, or addresses i always have to delete the useless space.

    Wow this feature has been requested for 2 years without being implemented? I purchased SwiftKey years ago and although I love 99% of what it does, I hate having to backspace every time after typing a period. As a developer this is frustrating because I type domain names and file names ALL THE TIME.

    Is there any way to turn this off? Even if that means I loose some functionality?

    Funny seeing all these comments and remembering how frustrated I was too back then. I moved on months ago and tried Gboard by Google.. No issues at all, looks way better than Swiftkey. I'm contented and happy with it. Don't bother hoping Swiftkey will listen.

    This is absolutely the worst thing about SwiftKey and has led me to start using Gboard, which I also have issues with. (I was a Swype user.) Moderator talks about different typers having different styles. Well, there's an easy solution to that. Create different default options in settings. The spacing behavior is also full of bugs.

    I just got swiftkey with new phone by default. It didn't last a day because of freaking auto space "feature".

    It doesn't even work properly, in some applications I would end up with space before comma, instead of after.

    It's crazy that people have been complaining bout this for years and they've done nothing to implement the simple fix of adding an on/off toggle, for this feature. It's a shame cos otherwise I like the keyboard but I hate this feature so much I can't use it.

    I'm afraid, there has been some kind of NONEIMPROVEMENT.

    I've been annoyed by the swift key blanks after I installed the app.

    Now we got two new phones with PREINSTALLED swift key.

     

    Their behavior: when'I do enter a word from the suggestions, it does add a blank, as usual. But when I do enter a comma after, then the next suggested word, then the sequence is word-blank-comma-word.

    So it's even WORSE now: blanks are inserted before the punctuation.

     

    It' swift key 7.2.7.20 on android 8.0.0

    Please, I like your keyboard but manually removing auto spaces is a waste of time... They really stick in there... Also, a question mark would be way more useful than a period as a direct key...

    Auto space should be removed by adding disable option.

    I expected a fix at the end. Bye Swift.
    I'm a software engineer. I understand backlog.
    But, I also understand "customer facing".
    You've got a 3 year history of perturbed users, now including myself.
    I hate the damn auto space.
    I just spent awhile trying to figure out a login because you were forcing spaces in a dotted username!
    Because I am a programmer I often talk of things in a dot notation.
    Not.being.able.to
    What the...
    Fly this by your automated tests: If I write the above dotted sentance after hitting enter from the previous I get no auto spacing. If I continue on the same paragraph, no newline, I get. All. Auto. Spaces.

    IN ANY CASE NOT BEING ABLE TO TURN THEM OFF SUCKS LIKE ALL CAPS MESSAGES.
    SEE.YOU.LATER.SWIFT

    How is it even POSSIBLE to be this stubborn by SwiftKey??! I mean, before Microsoft purchased SwiftKey, SwiftKey customer support was actually active in responding and was at least TRYING to assist users with their issues, they at least showed that SwiftKey appreciated their users choosing SwiftKey. Now, they simply stopped giving an F..
    Microsoft, may I ask why purchase, and then destroying an app, which had a really good thing going on??

    I mean, simply take a look at the bottom of this very page you're looking at, even the "©" is from 2018, we're in the end of 2019, and SwiftKey doesn't even care enough to update its copyright for 2019.
    Guys, no need to get frustrated, Microsoft simply left SwiftKey to rot.

    Another annoying auto space:

    When typing in a "username" field, and selecting a Swiftkey proposed username, the username is written in the field, with a space at the end

    This makes sometimes login rejected by web sites or apps 

    You have to systematically remove the auto space at the end of selected username in the login field

    => Could you disable auto spacing after selection for login fields, as it is for password fields?

    Please add option to "No space after period". It is sooooo annoying when typing version numbers or internet addresses.

     

    P.L.E.A.S.E.

     

    This has been requested since 3 years - time to do something guys !

    +1.  Most sites require I manually delete space after selecting Swiftkey's suggested login email.

    No, this one doesn't just go back 2 or 3 years, the problem and request to fix it go back many more years. And this isn't just Microsoft. I participated in two other long many person threads way back before Microsoft ever bought them and they were responding exactly the same way then too. They basically told us this is how it's going to work, we don't intend to make the "feature" optional, go play in traffic. I reinstall it now and then to see if they've finally come to their senses and so many years later still no. Every time I install it and I never make it a day without having to backspace and fix what it's done to me, I just uninstall it again and go back to Gboard. The original Swiftkey people were inflexible and they still are. I suspect msoft kept the same team and that's why nothing changes. This is bizarre to me but it's the way it is. Never seen a company so adamant about not doing such a simple improvement to fix something they annoys so many people. I mean it's just a single simple switch in the options we want. That's it. Other keyboards that do autospacing have it.

    The crazy thing about this problem is, that it does work just fine for an older android version and an optional swift key installation. It feels as if they broke it on purpose and just don't mind about any users' complaints.

    I'm confused over what you mean by "an optional Swiftkey installation".  Is it ever mandatory?  I've only ever installed mine from the Google Play store, and that has always been "optional".  I've been using Swiftkey off and on installed on a lot of different phone models going back to pretty much initial release of the product in 2010 or so with whatever Android version was out at the time, and in all those years on all those devices I've never known it to not autospace after puctuation.  This isn't a bug that has intermittently occurred, nor is it something that just "broke" one day or only manifest itself on particular Android versions.  This is a fundamental part of the design of the product which they have never made into an optional setting. They've declared it as such and officially declared that it is simply going to work this way and no setting will be made available to disable it.  It is universal across every device and every OS version.  I'm wondering whether you're talking about the same nuisance as me, and if you are, how you managed to ever get it to not do what it was designed intentionally to do.

    For the older device swiftkey was an additional and optional installation.

    The old version is updated to the current 7.4.7.6, which works fine on the old android 5.0.2 from 2015, without those spaces.

     

    For newer devices swiftkey was preinstalled and can not be removed or replaced by another version.

    The newer hardware came with 6.7.7.20 preinstalled and can not bei deinstalled. Neither old nor updated to 7.4.7.6, it's always with extra spaces. Same for other newer hardware, all with swiftkey preinstalled.

    You must have bought some brand of phone that has a preinstalled Swiftkey -- I wasn't aware it was preinstalled on any devices.  It certainly has never been included in stock Android.  I can't speak at all about whatever was preinstalled on your phone.  The Play Store versions of Swiftkey have *ALWAYS* had the autospacing active without any kind of configuration toggle available.  I'm certain of this.  Who knows what kind of customizations might have been made to the one that was preinstalled on your devices.  As for the Play Store version, the Android revision it's running on has nothing to do with whether that particular autospacing "feature" happens or not.  It's how the product works.  

    Looks like Swiftkey is in fact preinstalled on some devices like those from Sony and some of the Chinese phones such as Huawei and ZTE, perhaps with modifications, and a definitely very modified version of it is rebranded as the Samsung keyboard in their phones.  Because all of those are possibly / likely modified by the handset manufacturers, I don't advise bringing those preinstalled versions into consideration for the discussion here because it is impossible to know what's stock Swiftkey and what's modified.  As far as I know your report that it worked fine on some Android version is *because* of handset vendor customization and isn't relevant at all to our plea that the Play Store version has consistently been working badly for over 10 years.

    For the preinstalled versions (add HTC for Huawei), and yes, it's a Sony here, you do not have the choice to uninstall it. You just can not use it - and you can not start later on to re-install it, because it's always there.

     

    But now you know that there is at least one installation, which is updated to the very current one, which has no issues with spaces. So maybe there's some kind of interaction between the android version and swiftkey.

    However, swiftkey on this "ancient" android has lots of other issues. The keyboard may disappear while typing, leaving just the text line. Or it may stop to accept any input. It may take some time and several attempts until it does work as expected again.

    So although spaces are ok on the 5.0.2 android, swiftkey is not to recommend there, too.

    Inconceivable that this issue is still open. Man, I miss the Lumia keyboard.

    Like 1 in 5 Android users, I work in software development. I had to remove swift key like a year ago because of this, and periodically check to see if the lazy devs put a minute into fixing this.

    I need to Frequently.Share.Code(); and don't want to use a keyboard that fights me on something so basic.

    I'll check back in another year and see if they pull their heads out of the sand :). That said, been using the Google keyboard and it's getting smoother everyday ... I may not need swift key after all.
