Screen goes dark whenever I start typing0 votos 1 comentarioI don't know if this is because of an update or because of my new phone, but my screen started going dark whenever I start typing with Microaoft Swiftkey. It didn't use to do this before and it's driving me NUTS. I CAN'T SEE A THING. If they're going to implement this feature, at least give the users an option to switch it off!!!! I've been having such a hard time typing and I'm this close to just uninstalling it altogether!!!!!

Bugs with translator0 votos 1 comentario
I tried reporting this before, but it doesn't get fixed. Very frustrating...
1. The translator will sometimes just cut a translation in the middle, or ignore a word. This seems to happen when emojis are included in the text to be translated. In that case the fix is easy, just remove the emojis before translating...
2. Translator doesn't work if you try to translate a message that has already been translated. To reproduce: In WhatsApp for instance, copy one message, and translate. Close the translation. Copy the message again and translate, this time it doesn't translate.
word prediction with multiple languages3 votos 12 comentarios
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.
Add a delete key (delete to the right)6 votos 17 comentarios
Would love the option to include a delete key on top of the present backspace key. A lot of efficiency gains could be had by allowing me to delete rather than having to tap and move precisely in order to use the backspace key.
Tldr: have the keys that allow me to delete going right or left.

Floating Keyboard not working in Landscape mode0 votos 6 comentarios

The cursor jumps backwards in my text from time to time1 voto 2 comentarios
Often, when typing a post, the point of typing is mysteriously moved backwards in text by a few words or a couple of sentences and I'll find the last 3 - 5 words I've typed are showing up in the middle of some previous text for no apparent reason. It is very frustrating to have to go back and delete perfectly well-written text from the middle of another sentence and then retype that text. It is frustrating enough for me to have sought out this forum, and if no fix is explained to me very shortly, I will update my Play Store recommendation and uninstall your keyboard app.
Voice typing problems with latest beta21 votos 19 comentariosThere's a new beta to the SwiftKey keyboard and they really messed up the voice typing functionality. The second you take a breath the recording of your voice and therefore the dictation stops. So when you're writing something you're constantly hitting the dictation button. We need to be able to set the length of delay before dictation stops or override whatever is making things stop.
Spacebar height (accidental clicks)1 voto 2 comentarios
I have requested to SwiftKey for years that the spacebar is too tall. It comes right up to the bottom row of keys and it's difficult to not accidentally hit it pitting in odd spaces and errant predictions. If you could just shorten the height of the spacebar, this would solve the issue. I have tried other keyboards and don't have the same problem I do with SwiftKey. Is there a way I don't know to shorten the height of the spacebar? Add a gap between the spacebar and the lower row of letters? Even narrowing the width would help when hitting punctuation. Any ideas or replies from SwiftKey? Thanks.
Disable flow AND gesture.23 votos 27 comentarios
Could it be possible to add a option to disable gesture input altogether?
I do not like using flow as it makes me type slower, so I put it in gesture and because of that, sometimes deletes words or lowers the keyboard which is very annoying.
I am just wanting you to add a option to disable it entirely. I know I would use it, and there has someone else out there too!
Swiftkey clipboard on evernote Android0 votos 2 comentarios
In evernote, we can copy a note's internal link and paste it in another note.
example : copy internal link of noteA in noteB
On PC, the link is a short link named with the title of the first note
example : when lookig in "noteB", you see the link "noteA"
On android, the link is a long link (an URL) like https://www.evernote.com/shard/smlml§sd5s4d54f/dsdsds...
The trouble come from swiftkey because on pc,no problem and on android with samsung keyboard, no problem.
How can i end this issue, please ?
Transparent keyboard0 votos 2 comentarios
Kindly make a transparent keyboard. Thus would be a great feature. I use the SwiftKey Beta and the space bar in normal mode is too close to the virtual home button key on my phone that I keep accidentally returning to the home page whenever I am chatting or typing an email. This can get very frustrating. A transparent keyboard which can Float a few millimeters away from the home button would be great making it easier to read what's under the keyboard. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Sync & backup *all* pinned CLIPBOARD clips & keyword shortcuts for them (or at least: optional Import/Export as .txt or .xml) ACROSS phones!9 votos 9 comentarios
I use SwiftKey on multiple phones. Same login / account.
They should all be able to add new clips but also have ability to SEE clips added from different phones (same SwiftKey user!)
I'm speaking about - SYNC.
Our clipboards clips AREN'T BACKED UP AND SYNCED.
I have so many of them set-up. Do u know how much TIME I have spent setting Pinned clipboard clips and shortcuts up, just to lose them all? :(
Please, SwiftKey team, SYNC them.
Or at least, give option to export and import! (XML, TXT, whatever - as long as Import exists, too!)
I lose so much of my hard work because you DON'T backup/sync clipboard content and pinned items and shortcuts ACROSS PHONES, when SwiftKey account is the same...
I once lost my phone and bought another, enabled SwiftKey and NONE OF MY CLIPS were saved. :((((Such a big disappointment!
Please give this HIGH priority, PLEASE.
Kindest regards, Helen
PS. Do you, other fellow SwiftKey users, agree that there should be Backup & Sync (and/or Import / Export) of our Clipboard's clips?Pinned ones, especially!

Will SwiftKey ever improve its texting?0 votos 0 comentarios
I don't think that any more keylogging will happen with new software than what is already happening. Swift works best of you make an account for cloud storage. And as I commented already, they previously released a Neural keyboard app in alpha. I didn't notice any lag. I am a slow type (not quite as low as 20wpm). And the predictions were much better.
Swiftkey already offers a Neural keyboard app. The predictions are much better. And unless you're clocking milliseconds, I doubt that any lag is noticeable. I'm glad they're finally putting the Neural software in the main app. I uninstalled it waiting for this day.
Force Dark mode issues3 votos 7 comentariosGreetings, I am having a challenge with the legibility of some of the keys of my keyboard when I put on "force Dark mode" this is the only app that I have a problem with and I pray that you resolve it. The keys are the spacebar, backspace, enter, shift key, left, right and down arrow keys, the search icon in the top bar specifically.

Sticker support in android (Feature Request)0 votos 0 comentarios
It was better if the SwiftKey app supported some stickers like others keyboards in the market does.
- Stickers available in the keyboard can't be used as pure stickers in apps like WhatsApp. It's right now being sent as gif or images. An ability to sent these stickers in apps like WhatsApp, telegram... Like native stickers would be super cool.
- If users could make their own sticker packs for the keyboard and publish it in the app like custom themes in the app so that other users could also download it, it would be a nice addition. (would be outstanding if we could link those stickers with emojies like the feature in telegram so that once we hit the emoji the stickers linked will be predicted).
- It would be so nice if the emoji mashup stickers available in Gboard( swift key's major competitor) is also available in SwiftKey keyboard.
Wrong word selection constantly5 votos 64 comentarios
Lately this app has taken a downturn. It constantly puts in the wrong word. When I backspace to fix it, the word I just input shows up. Ugh! Why wasn't it selected to start with. I've stopped and deliberately made sure I swiped exactly from letter to letter, and it will still put in what it wants to, but what I swiped or what my history would predict. It not only suggests by preemptively puts in a word I rarely use over what I've just used or have used hundreds of times since I stated this app.

So many themes, but not one that looks good4 votos 2 comentarios
I have several issues with the SwiftKey themes:
1. There are lots of themes, but most of them feature the exact same key layout with another background. These 'themes' should not be listed as separate themes, but as variations of a theme. The most sensible thing to do to get some structure in this mess, is creating several keyboard layouts (i.e. with rectangular keys, rounded corners, no border,...), then let the user choose whether or not to display secondary symbols on the keys, and then offer color options.
2. There is no reason to put the SwiftKey logo in plain sight on the spacebar. I know which keyboard I'm using, and I 'm happy to tell other people if they ask, but I don't want your logo all the time in my sight. Put it in the '+'-menu if you absolutely need to show it somewhere.
3. There are almost no beautiful themes. I know this is very subjective, and yes, there are themes with balloons and fireworks as background images, and I can even use a custom photo,... But to me, a perfect keyboard is the keyboard that is not "in your face"; it's a keyboard that you don't even notice using. It should be clean, and have no showy interface elements. These themes are (almost) not available to choose from. The only theme that comes close to this, is 'Minimal material light', but even in a 'minimal' theme, you couldn't stop using colors and painted the shift, backspace, enter, emoji and symbols keys lilac.
Please get rid of the nineties keyboard layouts and introduce some modern ones, and make them fully customizable.
[Feature Request] Norwegian dvorak keyboard layout.2 votos 5 comentarios
Hi. I love SwiftKey with its close to perfect predictions. I am also a dvorak user. The English dvorak layout works good when typing English, but since I'm Norwegian I frequently use our special letters (æøå) when typing Norwegian. Therefore I would like to request the possibility of the Norwegian dvorak layout in swiftkey. The layout can be found here: dvorak.tg90nor.net

Duplicate letters when editing in a text box.-1 votos 6 comentarios
Hello, Whenever I edit a text that I've already typed or pasted into a text box, I get random word pairs that are fused into one wrong word by a duplicate of either the last letter of the first of the two or theffirst letter of the second. For example, I just typed "SwiftKey bugs" into a search box, but when I try to edit that to "SwiftKey repeated letters bug," I get either "SwiftKey repeateddletters bug" or "SwiftKeyrrepeatedlletters bug." Instead of a space between "repeated" and "letters," I keep getting a duplicate of the last letter in the first word or of the first letter in the second word. This is a constant issue that occurs many times daily and one that I can easily replicate. Thanks.
