Hey! Beta app updated this morning. While there's certainly something eloquent about the new menu bar that pops up (I imagine the primary motivation was not taking away the keyboard itself on accidental taps, which I applaud) it has also furthur buried the only feature I ever open that menu for, incognito mode. I would love to see incognito mode brought forward more. I've previously suggested letting it be a long press on the keyboard, perhaps as an option to switch it with the emoji or voice input keys. I know option menu items aren't a favorite solution, so maybe switch themes and incognito in the new menu? Do people really change their themes on the fly as frequently as they switch in and out of incognito mode?

Relocate or disable emoji Respondida2 votos 4 comentarios
I assume everyone at SwiftKey is younger than me. Great for you, but you are losing a lot of senior citizens as customers and users. I, like many senior citizens, have no use for the emoji on your keyboard. The only time I ever use emoji is on WhatsApp, and the emoji there is enough and unobtrusive. However, on your keyboard I frequently hit the emoji key when I aim at the z key or the comma. It is hugely irritating, to say the least. Can't you move the emoji key to the left or right of the number row at the top of the keyboard or better still, provide an option to just disable it. Please. Please as a beta user that is the first thing I look for with every new release.
Typing decimal numbers autocorrects to periods Respondida2 votos 2 comentarios
I can't find a way to toggle autocorrect in such a way to make it so I don't have to preface any decimal value I try to type with Swiftkey with a 0.
For example, if I wanted to say: "The value is .5 of x" swiftkey would instead always autocorrect it the moment I type the decimal/period and add it to the end of "is" so it ends up being "The value is." and then turns on capitalization as if i'm starting a new sentence. The only way I can prevent it from doing this is always specifying decimal values as numerical by always having a number prior to the decimal point but then, it ends up being counter to the entire idea of "Swift"key since now its making me type extra just to recognize how I want to type and never learning.
Custom Keyboard Layout Respondida2 votos 5 comentarios
I switched over to SwiftKey since I could see my text boxes but I'm not use to the current layout of the keyboard. I prefer to have my symbols on the left and my numbers visible without tapping on their own tab. And I like to have my emoji tab right next to my space bar on the left and not have to hold down on enter/send to get them. And way to change that sorta thing on here?

Themes Respondida2 votos 7 comentarios
I've been a SwiftKey user since the very start of the app. I have used it in Android and iOS. One thing is missing: Why not let the user create their own theme? At least the ability to choose colors and fonts.
This would push your keyboard over the top!
Text underlined in Swiftkey Beta? Respondida2 votos 7 comentarios
Hello - Within the last couple of updates of the Swiftkey Beta app, underlined text has begun appearing in the predictions bar at times while I'm typing. I just switched back to the Swiftkey app and this underline does not appear ever so it doesn't appear to be a system-wide phone issue. What is this underline? I find this incredibly annoying, especially because there doesn't appear to be any discernible use for it. I just typed 'Is' and it was underlined. If this is going to be added to the regular app going forward, could we also get an option to turn it off? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
My keyboard is showing bottom navigation buttons bellow keyboard Respondida2 votos 15 comentarios
Hello. I have the new Moto g5 plus which in the digital sensor has the feature to navigate thru left and right swipes on the sensor so i don't need to use the android on-screen buttom to return or anything else. The buttons doesnt even show on screen. But when i use the swiftkey or other keyboard, it creates the bottom buttons making my screen lose some space. How can i use this keyboard without the buttons just like my Samsung note?

Numeric keypad with number keys only? Respondida2 votos 2 comentarios
Is there a way to display numeric keypad with number keys only? For example on my Galaxy S7 Clock app when I want to select say hours or minutes, SwiftKey switches to numeric keyboard, but there heaps of other keys presented which has no meaning when entering numeric values only, like hours in this case.
With all the additional keys numeric keys are quite small.

This is how it looks when I speak.
How to get rid of new input method choice button / empty space Respondida1 voto 1 comentario
I do't know for what reason, but my android keyboard suddenly had an extra row at the bottom. Contained within it is an input selection button (bottom left), a massive blank space(waste of space) and a keyboard off down-arrow (right). I would like to remove this row but cant find an option. I even uninstalled reinstalled the app and it's still there so presume it appeared as part of an update. It makes typing harder due to having to reach over the empty space. Picture below.
Parkinson's disease support. Respondida1 voto 4 comentariosIs there a way to turn off swipe entry and gesture navigation? Also, can the keyboard enter typed input without any physical contact. That's creepy. All of these are very annoying and will mean that I can no longer use the smartphone if Google forces these changes these radical UI changes on me! Please I need it for emergencies. It already took me over 20 m minutes to make this post. I'm desperate!

Getting used to SwiftKey - Basic features - Capitalization, Word Selection, More Suggestions, Compositing, Shortcuts Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm somewhat new to SwiftKey, as I have used Swype in the past. Even after it has been discontinued, it stayed on my old phone until now. Now, with a new Galaxy S10 (running Android 9), I tried the newest version of SwiftKey from the Play Store, but I feel like I'm missing out on how to use/find basic features, so I have to ask for a little help. :)
So, what I'm looking for:
- How can I increase the number of word suggestions from my swiping? I type in different languages simultaneously, so having only three suggestions means that I have to delete the word that I just swiped and swipe it again if the word I intentioned wasn't suggested (as there are more words available that I could have meant). Having more options to choose from (by scrolling the suggestion/prediction bar), makes the workflow a lot better and quicker.
- How can I capitalize a word that I just typed, especially when it's not in the dictionary yet? Currently, I have to go the text, go delete the first character, use the shift key, type the first character again. Again, that's bad workflow, so I'm looking for the key/shortcut/gesture to just capitalize the current/last word.
- How can I extend the current word? Say, I want to write "SwiftKey" but the keyboard doesn't know the word yet. Right now, I have to swipe both words, resulting in "swift" and "key". Now I have to capitalize both words (or press the shift key beforehand), go back to the text, delete the space inbetween them, put the cursor at the end of the text and continue. Again, really bad workflow. How can I, after swiping "Swift" make sure that the word gets extended by the next word I swipe?
- Bonus question: Are there keyboard shortcuts for selecting the current word, all text (ctrl-a, basically) as well as copy, cut and paste or navigating through the text via cursors?
Thanks in advance for your help, everyone! :)
Edit: Uh, also: How to write German and English quotation marks instead of inch signs? How to write a long dash? (QWERTZ extended)

[Feature Request] Support for multiple accounts? Respondida1 voto 5 comentarios
Is support for being signed into multiple accounts simultaneously on the roadmap? It would be nice to be logged in using both an Outlook.com and an Office365 account at the same time.
Ideally, SwiftKey would use whatever default the underlying application is using (i.e. Edge, To-Do).
