The latest swiftkey keyboard beta update 220.127.116.11 turns keyboard key pop ups permanently on. Using the toggle in settings does nothing to fix it.

Latest Beta Update: Keyboard Pop UP Permanently on. Completada5 votos 5 comentarios
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.
Scaling issues with S9+ on WQHD+ resolution (too big)5 votos 3 comentarios
Using the latest version of Swiftkey and Swiftkey Beta cause scaling issues on the keyboard. Using the Galaxy S9+ with resolution set to WQHD+. Have to set keyboard to "Smallest" currently. Tried removing apps, reinstalling and clearing data, no changes.
Issue was not present on my S8+.
[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.
Can't delete words from dictionary5 votos 4 comentarios
The whole long press and "do not predict again" thing doesn't work at all. There are numerous words I have tried to remove, but they come back immediately. For example, I'm trying to remove God with a capital G so it won't capitalize the G every time I type god. I type god and long press to remove it, then I immediately type god and boom, it auto capitalizes to God. What is the point of having "do not predict again" if it doesn't do anything! How can I ACTUALLY remove a word from my autocorrect!
Interrobang (‽) character5 votos 3 comentarios
May we please have the interrobang character, ‽, on our keyboards? Perhaps as another option when long-tapping the full stop key?
Emoji suggestions - Crystal Ball5 votos 1 comentario
Hey guys, I love SwiftKey and although I dabble with other third party keyboards, I always find myself coming back, so thank you!!
This round I hooked into the beta version, it seemed in the last update (dated 15 Feb 2018) we've added in the Genie Ball for emoji suggestions. As brilliant of a feature this is, I've yet to have it accurately predict my emoji, partly due to the fact that different people get different emojis, for example I send my girlfriend purple hearts, everyone else usually gets red.
At this point, my request/suggestion is that the default emoji tab be reverted to the recents as opposed to the suggestions. By all means keep the suggestions for the second tab, but I much prefer the recents to be the first tab.
[Feature Request] Trackpad in Spacebar (Android)5 votos 1 comentario
This feature is requested a long time ago, and I need it. I want the possibility to move the cursor while swiping over the space bar. Arrow Keys are useless, because I always accidentally press on the left arrow key instead of the space bar. Add this, immediately, please!
Remove the incognito theme, please5 votos 8 comentarios
as a person which is using Czech language with a lot of extra letters ("ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í..."), the Incognito mode is perfect for me when I'm writing an SMS, because I can use normal letters ("e, s, c, r, z, y, a, i...") and my SMS is shorter and therefore cheaper.
However, I really don't like the incognito dark theme. Could it be removed and instead just left there my choosen theme? (I use the bright theme, which is perfect for me and I would appreciate to have this theme while incognito mode...)
How can I disable combined keyboard?5 votos 2 comentarios
I have English and Persian languages enabled in SwiftKey and a recent update has added a feature that combines the two languages into one keyboard. This doesn't work well at all! I can still get a Persian only keyboard but I can't do that for English anymore. Is there a way to disable this feature and get back separate keyboards again?
Issue with WhatsApp pin5 votos 6 comentarios
I am unable to enter pin for WhatsApp and few other banking applications.
WhatsApp pin is a 6 digit number, I can enter the first 4 digits then when you try to enter the 5 digit it overrides the 4th digit and Keep doing this.
I am not aware of any workaround, I end up using Gboard for WhatsApp pin and in other apps.

Swiftkey errornously capitalize 'i' in swedish scentence5 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.
[Not a bug] No prediction in Excel cells Respondida5 votos 39 comentarios
i've been using Swiftkey for a long time to edit spreadsheets in Excel for Android. After the last update (21/08 if i'm correct) the prediction words on the upper side of the swiftkey keyboard do not show up!
Before the update the prediction was working flawlessly when i was editing a cell. Did you change that on purpose or is it a bug. I hope it's just a bug because i need the predictions back!

How to stop capitalizing i5 votos 2 comentarios
I think I tried it all for SwiftKey not to capitalize my i's when writing in en/sr keyboard but no matter what I do mostly all my i's get capitalized after space and then I manually have to go back and redo them. I love using SwiftKey, it made my typing much faster and specially I love how I can mix and input some English words in Serbian and it automatically recognizes them, but it would be just perfect if there was an on/off switch for whether you want your i's capitalized.
Microphone Size and Placement Respondida5 votos 1 comentario
Thanks for a sweet keyboard!
I was wondering if you could place the microphone in a more convenient position or maybe make it easier to tap. I haven't once tapped that dang thing without tapping all around it.
Not complaining seriously
[Feature Request] Turn off flow trails Respondida5 votos 6 comentarios
I would like to able to turn off the trail in the flow feature. The trail that follows my finger from one key to the next, at least for me blocks the vision of the keyboard. I've used another keyboard that allows me to turn off the trail. I don't use that other keyboard because SwiftKey is better overall. I think it is best out there.

Making a qwerty with Ç for portuguese5 votos 1 comentario
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] Extra Shortcut Clips features5 votos 3 comentarios
Currently I use Smart Keyboard, just because of the AutoText feature it has (= shortcut clips).
I would really like to use SwiftKey instead. And the addition of the clips is bringing it a step closer.
I have 3 feature requests:
1) Import / export
I would love the ability to be able to import (and export) the shortcuts / clips.
I want to use loads and would not like having to enter them manually one-by-one. So some import from file ability would be great. Maybe in json format or whatever.
Not being able to import is currently still a deal-breaker for me.
2) Rich text snippets
I would also like the ability to create rich text snippets. For instance to be able to use as email signatures and such.
You can copy rich text in Android and past it, where it keeps the formatting. So this should be possible I expect.
It would be awesome if we could create these in html format, which would get pasted as rich text when selected.
3) Add optional title/description field
When having long clips, the first few words will be displayed in the bar. Like: "It's a very long..."
This can be very undescriptive, especially when having multiple clips with the same starting words.
It would be nice to have an extra title/description field that would displayed in the bar instead. That field could get a character limit of - say - 20 character, so it will always get displayed in full (not truncated).

Space below spacebar is too large since a couple of updates ago4 votos 7 comentarios
Since a few updates ago, there is now additional empty space below the spacebar and the last row of keys. Accidentally touching that space closes the keyboard while typing which is very time consuming because I have to keep manually opening the keyboard. I have tried re-sizing the keyboard but it won't allow me to extend into that empty space at the bottom. Please see two attached screenshots. Can you please fix this or allow us to eliminate that space?

The thing is it came out of nowhere, I switched from Instagram to whatsapp to find it there. So please help.
Login and Sync Issues4 votos 0 comentarios
I have seen several Forum entries and tens of 1 star reviews about this, so just to mention: The Backup and Sync is not working. It'd be nice if you'd, you now, react to any of the posts.
Another issue is the Web Login for both the forum and the SwiftKey Data page. I don't know if this is a recent development, but Chrome (both mobile and Desktop), and I'm pretty sure Firefox too, are blocking third party cookies. This seems to make it impossible to login with both Google or Microsoft (The Google button is grayed out and other login attempts result in an error that cookies are disabled). Virtually all other Websites I use seem to login with Google just fine, third party cookies enabled or not. For people not very tech experienced it will be impossible to login (maybe that's why I don't see hundreds of posts about the sync issue...).
