    I sent the following email/request to Support at SwiftKey:

    Jan 21, 7:28 PM PST

    Is there a way to stop the automatic space after a period?
    Most of the time I do not want a space following the period. Perhaps an option in the settings area would help.

     

     

    The following was support's reply:

    Your request (150949) has been updated. To add additional comments, reply to this email.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting SwiftKey support!

    At this time SwiftKey Keyboard does not support this feature.
    We really appreciate your feedback and will certainly pass it along to our team.

    Thanks for using SwiftKey! 

    Regards,

    Yuka

    Smart keyboard pro seem to be the best replace it actually allows you to HIDE PERIOD. Only the QUESTION MARK SiGN is not as reachable like swiftkeys

    This also drives me nuts. Ip address and filenames are so inefficient to enter with the auto space after period. I love swiftkey, but i have to switch keyboards for anything other than messaging. Please add an option to dissable this feature

    In some ways I wish Google had bought SwiftKey not Microsoft since Microsoft doesn't seem to be listening to any of our requests. Both Gboard and SwiftKey have complimentary issues and annoyances. This issue and a couple of other things drive me crazy with SwiftKey. Switching to Gboard for a few things brings up other issues that I don't like about it and brings me back to SwiftKey.

    This still doesn't work! The setting 'Auto capitalize' should be for just this ussue, but switching it off doesn't help. VERY annoying!!!

    yes can we please fix this? who decided we should let users customize PARTS of the "auto space" feature but force a small and particular aspect of it on their users?

    it's.... almost offensive? you're clearly aware that users would like to customize how they want spacing to work, clearly aware that some users do not want spacing to be automated, and yet despite all that, you decide to go ahead and auto space after punctuation, and after now what seems to be 2 years you've still done nothing?

    I was about to make the switch from swype (yes, I'd rather use an un-supported app than this) but now I think I'll look elsewhere or just switch back.

    this is almost ridiculously disrespectful to your users(2 years!??! really??!!), read the forums, understand your users, this is a simple fix I presume?

    I don't understand this. Maybe most people don't even know what an IP address is or don't type any URIs otherwise they would go nuts. Let's try to bring here more of our friends and their friends, maybe someone actually notices. Being a SW developer myself, I think this is a matter of just few lines of code and we're done and happy.

    I want that too. Really, how someone could even imagine, that forcing adding space after period is good idea. It's nightmare.

    I thought I'd do a quick search to figure out how to turn this off since I couldn't figure it out.  It's incredible that this is not an option.  Does anyone have suggestions for other keyboards to use?  This one is now uninstalled.

    2 years, and yet... Nothing??? I mean come on, as a younger person using this, i use punctuation characters alot for said commands let's say in a chat of a live channel, and it's incredibly annoying to have to type ! and have a space afterwards, delete the space at the front, add one at the start because for some God knows reason it attaches to the last word, and then type the command, it's not lnly inconvenient, slow, and annoying, but truly lazy and shameful of you guys to keep looking at these comments and 2 years later still do nothing about it. I bought a huawei mate 20 lite happy with everything else and its features, and then I have this MAJOR issie in using it every day ckmfortably, if only the Gboard was taller, I'd immediately uninstall this garbage and maybe consider it when I see that it's fixed, until then, think about adding requested features and not just sit there looking at less and less people using this keyboard. Honesrly, very shameful of you guys.

    please add an option to disable SwiftKey from putting in those automatic spaces after dots.

    My one major complaint about Swiftkey. No way to disable the auto-punctuation junk ... and it WILL NOT let you correct it. For example, if I try to type "some words ... and more words" it forces the correction to be: "some words... And more words." Insanely obnoxious.

    RESPECT YOUR ****ING USERS AND READ THIS ****ING THREAD YOU PRETENTIOUS D-BAGS!! Phew, had to get that out of my system. Like one of the previous posters (who is a software engineer) said, this issue is most likely a few lines of code. An easy, 5-10 minute fix for one of your programmers, yet you still refuse to lift a finger and do literally ANYTHING for your loyal users. Really? 2 whole YEARS and you're still sitting there with your heads in the sand doing NOTHING?? Come to think of it, going through the options to try and find a setting for this garbage functionality issue, I didn't notice a single thing different about the menus in settings from when I first started using this app years ago. Have you seriously done NOTHING to better this widely used app? I guarantee this is not the only issue people have with it. The second I find a better alternative, I'm gone. Absolutely DONE with you lazy ungrateful people.

    Still waiting. This app is a piece of sh*t. They're lucky gboard refuses to autocorrect. That's the ONLY reason I switched and it's almost not even worth it. This issue combined with the piece of sh*t way the caps lock works drives me nuts. Constantly making the word I want capitalized lowercase, while making the previous word capitalized. Garbage, lazy programming.

    Yes I totally agree, gboard had some issues I didn't like so I switched back to my fav board, but this "minor" issue is making me think about another board. I write links a lot how the f*** I'm I supposed to do that without tearing my hairs out? Everything about SwiftKey I love, beside this, I called it an issue but what it is, is a problem. Also because micro bought this we lost the ability to learn our most frequent words from Gmail and Google, but who the f*** uses outlook, are they retarded or something? 

    If nothing happens within next week I will file a support ticket for micro myself (yes I will put it in my calender, because I don't remember anything anymore since this tech-boom)

    Micro have a lot of peeps that could take care of this, but it seems expansion and profit is of a higher priority

    It also adds a space after I put in a postcode or email address, if I want a space I'll add it myself the key is bloody big enough for me to still be able to see it!

    Remember the flow keyboard MS had on its own phones?? That worked - it also didn't add every single typo to my local dictionary... The auto space thing makes me look like a grammatical moron. I'm tired of it. You need to fix it or offer a solution now.

    As with other users, when I type FQDN, IP etc it insists on adding in spaces. This actually makes it impossible to use effectively. There have been enough complaints here and elsewhere for this to be a priority fix.

    Again, Windows Mobile had a much better version on the last iteration. More accurate, more customizable - an awesome little cursor stick - and much better prediction.

    << throws self on pile of "Why did you ruin my favorite keyboard, Microsoft?"

    Also, even though I have the feature disabled, mine still *sometimes* adds periods if I accidentally double space after a word. So awesome. I tried switching to Gboard for a week, but just couldn't adapt to it. :-/

    Yes, just to recap this thread. Microsoft DID ACTUALLY ruin SwiftKey, f#%!%#g ruined! 
    Swiftkey back in the day was the ultimate droid keyboard.

    Microsoft: SHAME on you!
