I know it has been fixed one year ago but the latest update made my keyboard far too big.
Here are screenshots of the different sizes: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dcavhvbj2it8byl/AABIrKlbKm9ZQfek39ZbmvXea?dl=0
Please fix this quickly :)

[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard Mostrada Destacada-4 votos 17 comentarios
Dear SwiftKey users,
We heard several times that some of you may run into an issue that annoys you very much: I selected SwiftKey as default input method, and it will randomly switch back to the stock (OEM) keyboard
Reason no.1 is the RAM cleaner killed SwiftKey. The solution is very easy: add SwiftKey into the white-list.
More importantly: it also could because some of the phones' OS has special RAM management and battery monitor to control the usage of each app. SwiftKey Keyboard for Android supports 5 languages at the same time, plus the Neural (AI learning) technology for predicting next words intelligently might need a bit more power from your phone. This could cause unwanted accidentally killing of SwiftKey
How to prevent it?
Well, different phones have different OS, even if they're all Android, but deeply customized. Here I list some of the phones which ran into this issue.
Samsung devices before Android Nougat update and some other close to stock android OS phones: System Settings > Battery (Power) > Battery Optimization > tap "not optimized" and select "all apps" > Find SwiftKey > Choose "Don't optimize".
Samsung device after Android Nougat (7.0+) update: System Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Oppo smartphones: Security Center > Battery > Enable Smart power-saving mode > Power-saving app control and management > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Xiaomi smartphones: Go to Security Tab -Permission-Auto-start management - Add auto-start apps, check SwiftKey.
Hope this little tutorial can help you. Let us know if you have any other tips or tricks to help others out

Swiftkey changing to the numeric pad in the middle of a sentance0 votos 0 comentarios
Does anyone else have this problem? i'd be in the middle of writing a sentence and it randomly changes it to the number/symbol keyboard. It only happens with Swiftkey and works normal with the samsung keypad. I've tried reinstalling the keyboard which didn't fix it. Any help would be appreciated.
preload swiftkey as default keyboard0 votos 0 comentarios
I am trying to preload and set Swiftkey as the default keyboard on our phones, such that it is the default keyboard when a user first launches their phone.
Is there a guide available to do this in this forum or online? (I did look, but didn't find one)
why don't you let me switch off autopredict?0 votos 0 comentarios
as nice as autocorrection and autoprediction may be, at times, as annoying can it be at other times. if you are a creative writer, especially autopredict can be your worst enemy, especially if you are writing about a subject Swiftkey knows nothing about. Same if you write in, or experiment with, different writing styles. all this does, is the writer more dumb, and feeds more data in the big data machine.
Not allowing me to remove this annoying prediction bar is just more proof that data collection means everything and the user means nothing. All we gonna end up with are people too dumb to write a coherent sentence without the help of a machine and further down the inability to communicate at all without the crutch of technology.
I would like to request that with all your efforts to speed up the writing process and make everybody use the same old boring words in the sequence most recently collected by you, to allow the folks who still write word by word, by selection of their own personal choice, to do so without having to look and be disturbed constantly by an annoying prediction bar
Swiftkey suddenly started capitalizing first letters even though that setting is disabled.0 votos 0 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.

Will future sync feature come to both SwiftKey and SwiftKey Beta?1 voto 3 comentarios
When I click Get an app to sync your clipboard across your devices in Windows 10 PC, I get a link for SwiftKey Beta version in my android device.
Now, SwiftKey final is already there, why they don't send the link of it, instead of Beta?
I assume (I may be wrong here) Beta is less stable, and it's only for testing, and it stops support once final version is released.
Given that all, will future sync feature (sync clipboard between android keyboard and Windows 10 PC) come to both SwiftKey and SwiftKey Beta?

Adding words to Android?0 votos 0 comentarios
Hi. How does one add a word to the dictionary in Android? I saw an article on how to do it for iOS, but cannot find an Android page. I tried the iOS directions, but it did not work. I typed out the word then tapped it in the prediction bar, but nothing happened. It did not react, and when I cleared the word and swiped the word on the keyboard, another word appeared instead.

Fix Vietnamese language typing0 votos 0 comentarios
Hello, this is the first time I post here. I'm using the Vietnamese keyboard a lot and there is one painful problem I have met so far. When I want to type a word like this "mới" on other keyboards I can type like this "moiws" but on Swiftkey I must type like this "mowsi". Could you fix this problem?
Thank you in advanced!
Farsi Keyboard issue0 votos 0 comentarios
I use Farsi Keyboard for my farsi typings. There is a big issue that default number keys are still in English. However, If you long press on English numbers, it will show Farsi numbers.
This is unacceptable. When Farsi Keyboard layout is activated, default number keys should be in Farsi, NOT in English!!!!!!!!
Other keyboard programs, including the default keyboard of Samsung phones or other Android phones don't have this huge bug.
Is there any way to fix it?

3. B or "ช" When I use physical keyboards. In my phone screen shown "จ" like that I press C or "จ"
4. B or "ช" When I use physical keyboards with "Shift" key. In my phone screen shown "๗" like that I press C or "จ" with "Shift" key instead "๙".
5. D or "ป" When I use physical keyboards with "Shift" key. In my phone screen shown "); " instead of having to appear ")".

Samsung DEX layout switching conflict0 votos 0 comentarios
I'm using swiftkey with my Galaxy S9 and recently started using DEX functionality - it's a Desktop EXperience from samsung, provides desktop layout with connected external display and keyboard/mouse. I'm using 2 languages: english and russian, and while the Swiftkey is active I can not switch languages neither with native Ctrl+Shift shortcut nor with samsungs shift+space, although I checked that in Swiftkey settings dual language is enabled for physical keyboard and there's a shortcut to switch between them.
As long as I switch to the native samsung keybord everything is ok, but it's pretty inconvenient to switch the keyboard before and after connecting external display
