Voice to text button placement6 votos 3 comentarios
Hello, I'm a beta user, I don't bother with any other keyboard apps, this one is perfect. I do agree with all post that the voice to text button should be easier to access. Why can't you just create a custom keyboard (or two) 😀 with the key placement stand alone by itself...
Swiftkey errornously capitalize 'i' in swedish scentence6 votos 3 comentarios
I have the languages English (US) and Swedish enabled.
Whenever I type a Swedish sentence, swiftkey will capitalize the word 'i' (which means 'in' in Swedish).
Swiftkey should be able to determine that it is in a Swedish language context and NOT apply English language rules.
Add a delete key (delete to the right)6 votos 15 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.
[Feature Request] Add Android Wear support6 votos 3 comentarios
As it is possible to use 3th party keyboards on Android Wear if would be really nice if you would make it available.
First of all there are only a few language supported on AW therefore a keyboard which support more would be really successful.
Secondly all the words and usage statistics which the keyboard learnt on my phone and tablet could sync make it easier to type on a small screen.
Please if it is possible, make it happen!
Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 votos 19 comentarios
I am a loyal user of the Swiftkey keyboard! Unfortunately the keyboard does not function properly on my new Samsung Galaxy S8. It jumps ahead a space mid-word then continues typing the word but at that point it is not a real word because it is the second half of the word. This is the case with about 50% of what I type.

Making a qwerty with Ç for portuguese6 votos 2 comentarios
I would like to ask you to make available a QWERTY layout for Portuguese with the letter Ç, just like there's a layout for spanish with Ñ. It's horrible having to long press C everytime we want to put an Ç. Ç is as important for portuguese just as ñ is to spanish. Please make it available.

[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian6 votos 10 comentarios
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.
Wrong word selection constantly6 votos 62 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.

New toolbar introduced, how can I hide or disable it? (2020) Respondida5 votos 8 comentarios
A new toolbar with many new features has been introduced (https://9to5google.com/2018/03/15/swiftkey-update-toolbar-stickers/). However I don't need it and it disrupts my workflow (buttons present in the text input, like Telegram stickers, are now 1 row more distant from text input).
How can I disable it?
Thanks for the answers and the interest.
You can disable it by pressing the button on the left of all the words prediction, the one that you see in the picture, and it will be hidden.
Problems with SwiftKey keyboard placement and OnePlus Gesture Navigation Respondida5 votos 10 comentarios
Hi - I have a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android v10, set up for gesture control. As such, I no longer have any navigation buttons on the bottom of my display.
I am having a big problem with SwiftKey, where the keyboard can't be moved to the bottom of my display:
Aside from losing valuable screen real estate, this causes a lot of SwiftKey failures for me.
For example, If I am trying to type with the space bar, or enter key (or, any of the bottom keys), and accidentally hit just a little bit lower than the bottom row key, SwiftKey registers it as a "close keyboard" event, and I lose whatever I was typing. This is a HUGE pain in the rear!
Please update SwiftKey to allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen when the user has selected a gesture navigation method. Note that there are multiple manufacturers that have their own version of gesture navigation (like OnePlus), so the solution should be generic enough to detect that any gesture navigation implementation will allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen.
How can I import my personal dictionary ?5 votos 7 comentariosHello,I think there is an issue with the keyboard SwiftKey.My dictionary was not synchronized in my new phone!I can download my data from the website but couldn't import it or get them by synchronization!
Reason why Swiftkey doesn't sync predictions... anymore...5 votos 2 comentarios
Listen, I know. Long story short, got Swiftkey on my old phone for years, now I have a new phone and yeah, it won't sync. After hours of research, I found out why... According to Wikipedia...
"In 2016 SwiftKey users began reporting personal details given by SwiftKey as suggested words to other users whom does not have previous connections, other issue includes foreign language and obscene words. SwiftKey responded by disabling cloud sync for word suggestions and released an update to mitigate the issue."
I think this is why. Practically, Swiftkey is now peer-pressured. I think they don't want that issue to happen again, so that's why they don't solve the prediction problem, because that problem solved a previous issue and they don't want such issues to happen again.
Let's hope that they let it return... someday...

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS AND OVERVIEW IT AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?5 votos 0 comentarios

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS?
I want to create a backup file from all the created clipboard shortcuts.
AND OVERVIEW IT?
in my phone i can't organise the shortcuts, i can only create a lot and scroll through the created shortcuts and edit them when i can find them. But after making hundreds of shortcuts it is frustrating to lose an overview and not be able to organise them all on Alphabetical order and in a spreadsheet file or anything exportable to a cloud - document - excel conversion so i can keep the shortcuts and export the file to another device and use them all again on that device.
This could be handy for educational tool on schools and universities with standard shortcuts.
Also it would be great if the overview is possible in a spreadsheet so people can really learn the shortcuts and overview them, edit the ones they want to edit and restore the file to the device or devices.
AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?
Talking about a dowloadable file is the first thing we need to do if we think about shortcuts on keyboards.
Swiftkey would be the best app if it allows users to create a file and make them able to edit these shortcuts personal in an editor online or on a spreadsheet cloud environment.
Broken Cloud Sync Android5 votos 13 comentarios
It's been more than a month now, since SwiftKey stopped predicting my saved words, emails etc. Its very annoying and not at all time saving.
I'll appreciate if someone can point me to another keyboard other than gboard. I'm done with SwiftKey now. They couldn't care less about their customers. Tweeted them few times, no replies or anything. Just pathetic and sad experience now.
Sync Clipboard Respondida5 votos 8 comentarios
I see there other posts on these but the *status is closed without any conclusion.*
How important does SwiftKey think is a good idea to sync Clipboard? This often consists of my usernames or passport number, greeting messages to my clients. And after every phone reset or phone device upgrade, I have to redo everything again. I need to take the trouble of copying every clipboard pinned texts to Evernote and then put it in SwiftKey. We are heading into 2020.
Incognito stole my punctuation Planeada5 votos 7 comentarios
Since yesterdays update the keyboard automatically switches to the incognito black mode. This keyboard lacks all the floating punctuation symbols like quotation marks etc which makes it unusable I literally cannot type in my passwords since the missing floating punctuation hasnt been been moved anywhere else. How do I either turn off this incognito mode or get my punctuation back.

[Feature Request] Make Keyboard Theme and the Navigation Bar match colors5 votos 0 comentarios
The navigation bar on Android devices almost always shows a light or white color navigation bar instead of the same color as the app.
Gboard is implementing this feature and I can't believe SwiftKey doesn't already have it.
If it is dark and I start to type, my entire screen is dark themed but the navigation bar will be a blinding white color.
There are many apps that change this setting to match the rest of the app. Please do it for the SwiftKey keyboard.
I have a Galaxy Note 8 and the only way to have a dark keyboard color is to manually change it for SwiftKey using.a third party app. I would rather it work natively.
Customize Long-press Symbols5 votos 2 comentarios
It would be very nice if there were a way to adjust what symbol(s) are in the long-press menu of each key, as well as which one of those is the default. For instance:
* I use tilde (~) a lot, to indicate a sentence spoken with a joking tone. I'd gladly give up, say, double-quote on 'C' to get quicker access to it. (Yes, I know that if you turn on the dedicated number row, 'E' gets tilde as its long-press instead of 3, but that costs valuable screen real-estate.)
* The number keys, when you have the dedicated number row on, don't have any long-press symbols assigned at all.
* As I Canadian, I use the English (UK) locale, since there isn't a dedicated Canadian English locale and we mostly use the British spellings for words. However, this means SwiftKey insists on making the default long-press symbol on 'X' the pound symbol; since our currency is the Canadian dollar, I'd much rather have it default to the dollar sign.
* As an English-speaker living in Québec, I occasionally need to type a French word or place name which contains an accented character. However the only accents which are used with any frequency are the acute, grave, and circumflex on a vowel or cedilla on 'C'; the other fifty-or-so accented characters available when the 'Show all accented characters' option is on are or little use to me.
Option to remove space/auto cap after leading punctuations5 votos 1 comentario
When using Swiftkey in coding/scripting applications I often have to undo the auto space/cap swiftkey does.
If you want to write something like "!test" it will automatically make it "! Test" same with file names ".nomedia" will become " .Nomedia" (or ". nomedia" if the app has auto cap disabled for that field).
In most applications (in english at least) if you have a punctuation that doesn't come at the end of another non space character, then you likely don't mean it as part of a normal sentence and don't want the space and auto capitalization.
Would it be possible to change this or get an option to disable this? Right now using it for anything aside from natural conversational typing is almost counter productive because of it.
[Feature Requests] Don't censor GIFS5 votos 3 comentarios
I just noticed that after a certain update my gifs are now censored. I've been a swift key user since the beginning (since the paid app days) and I'm now actively looking for an alternative. If I wanted to use an app that controls what I can search or use I would just use APPLE.

[Feature Request] Add Bing/Google search to SwiftKey5 votos 1 comentario
Searching is very important sometimes while writing. It is very annoying minimize app -> open browser -> search & copy -> minimize browser -> again open app & paste. So we wish you will bring this feature very near future and SwiftKey will not disappoint us.
