How to make number row match the rest of the keyboard?0 votos 2 comentariosMy phone theme has been black on black on black on black with a beautiful accent of color of more black since my very first smartphone. Why is there seemingly no control over the color of the number row on this otherwise amazing keyboard? I just upgraded my phone and am trying to go back to using SwiftKey after the last 18 months on my note 9 using gboard because their number row matches. SwiftKey is better there's no doubt about that but this dang gray bar in the middle of my screen makes it unbearable. So much customization except this one simple spot.
Some characters are hardly accessible0 votos 1 comentarioI'm spanish and though my keyboard language is right, I need the opening interrogation and exclamation signs more easily accessible, since I need to use them quite often. Would it be possible? Thanks
Make possible manual additions to autocorrect1 voto 1 comentario
This is a feature request for making possible manual additions to the autocorrect. Regularly, words that i would like to be auto-corrected, are not. I cannot find a setting where i can add those words, together with the word to which i'd like the erroneous word to be autocorrected. This is a common function in desktop text applications.
Why is iOS SwiftKey different than Android? Missing amazing features0 votos 0 comentarios
So I switched to iPhone after 6 years using an android phone. I installed swiftkey on ios noticed that the ios swiftkey app is missing some mandatory (imo) features which are present in android version.
Features like resizing keyboard, long press for all symbols and numbers (numbers in first row, other symbols like ;()!%_= etc. underneath), a comma on the left side of space button, long press duration and many more
Why is it like this and are there any official statements on this one? I just love the android swiftkey and don’t like swiftkey at all on ios.
Words coming back0 votos 1 comentarioI removed words from my keyboard and still they are coming back, even so I didn't use them. Is that possible?
Voice Typing1 voto 4 comentariosBack story. For many months I've been using 2 keyboards, gboard for voice typing and SwiftKey for regular typing. I decided to hit the microphone and try using SwiftKey voice to text and it was just like that of gboard! I was ecstatic and then today, all of a sudden it reverted back to the old voice typing with the white box.. Why!? I was so happy with the black box that would type as I was speaking making my life so much easier. I really don't wanna go back to using 2 keyboards, please bring back the voice to text that was just like gboard. It was like having the best of both worlds! SwiftKey blows gboard out of the water but when it comes to voice to text gboard is still better. At least let me have the option to choose which voice to text I wanna use. Please! Example, when I'm in my car I could unlock my phone to my messenger and the voice dictation would automatically start, amazing! I need this back. It was truly amazing but too short lived.

swiftket voice input button stays on voice input -----1 voto 3 comentarios
when you use voice to text button now on swiftkey it brings up voice inout , close out messages and go back in and there is no keyboard it defaults back to voice inout automatically.
then you have to hit the keyboard button at the bottom and change back to swiftkey keybord
it used to be you press the button say your message and send it , then next time your in a message it would default back to swiftkey. keyboard to type.
but now when you hit the microphone icon it stays on all the time for all messages.
Please use the ENTER key to determin the conversion string in Japanese1 voto 0 comentarios
In a typical Japanese IME, the Entrer key is used to determine string while typing or converting undetermine characters, but in Swiftkey, a new line is entered. This is highly uncomfortable and many users refuse to use Swiftkey for this reason. There is no word breaking by whitespace in Japanese, and the spacebar is used to select the next conversion candidates as you type.
This problem is the most fatal issue to the widespread use of Swiftkey in Japanese. If you doubt it, please ask your company's native Japanese opinion.

[Feedback] New thumb mode layout is worse0 votos 1 comentario
In a recent update you changed the thumb mode layout so it no longer has Y, H and B on both sides, and it's no longer symmetric which is much worse and makes typing difficult for me and many others using one of the nordic layouts.

feature request: msklc support0 votos 1 comentario
Dear Swiftkey / Microsoft,
great that you have started to support alternative keyboards, such as Colemak and Dvorak. This is a feature request for linking your Microsoft Swiftkey to MSKLC, Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator, to allow users to make and use their own keyboards for use in Swiftkey, as we do in Windows.
Swiftkey not working with Twitter-1 votos 1 comentario
I have Swiftkey version 184.108.40.206
I have Twitter version 8.67.0-release 00
I have a Samsung S20 Ultra 5G (UK version) with Android 10
For some months now I am unable to use the Swiftkey board with Twitter.
As soon as I go to type the keyboard vanishes and does not come back.
How do I fix this please?
How do I stop the space after hyphen?0 votos 3 comentariosI've started working on documents with a lot of numbers, which often use negative numbers. How do I stop the automatic space between hyphen (-) and the number from happening? I tried searching in the settings and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off. It's annoying to have to back space every time.
Android: SwiftKey typing, no output1 voto 4 comentarios
I am getting frequent (multiple times per day) where I am typing on swiftkey and I see the prediction forming, but no output in the actual text field I was typing in. Switching to any other keyboard and changing back (without typing anything in the other keyboard) restores functionality, but it's pretty annoying and it's getting more frequent.
Keyboard font size0 votos 1 comentarioI have a compact phone. Will swiftkey introduce an "increase keyboard font size" function, without increasing the keyboard buttons? Swiftkey (and other apps I've looked) at all simply increase overall keyboard & button size but in my phone it takes up too much screen space, restricting functionality - too little typed text is visible etc. There is plenty of room on the standard keys / buttons for a larger font. I don't care if it makes the appearance "ugly" I just need functionality. Its a bit like a car designer fitting a tiny steering wheel because it "looks nice". It may do but it's hard to steer! Thanx

font is "outline" (ex: Pumpkin)0 votos 1 comentario
Hi - for reasons unknown to me - and in the past this was NOT the case (but it is now) certain themes have fornts that are 'outline' (inside of font is blank) - which I find very annoying - example 'Pumpkin' I would like it to have a SOLID font - like most themes.
ALSO - most charachters in Pumpkin are not the 'amber' color indicated - but rather white - only Shift, backspace, emoji and search are the 'amber' color - this is not as much annoying as the 'outline' font issue - but it still does not fully represent the 'Pumpkin' theme as it used to.
Any solutions? (am using Android 10 on a galaxy S20-FE)
Can't remove words from dictionary0 votos 1 comentario
Keyboard woks fine, but as other users, I can' termove a word form my dictionary.
Long press and remove does not work: the word is still there.
Is there some official page to report a bug or is microsoft too big to bother, as usual?
Feature request: Don't remove space in number pad0 votos 0 comentarios
Have an option to not remove preceding space when using Number Pad entry to put a period in.
This would be very useful for math and in some cases, IP address abbreviations ("The router is .1 and the DNS server is .2")
I love the behavior of the period key in the normal text entry, but the number pad could invite expectation of different behavior. To expand on this idea, maybe other "autocorrect" features might be disabled in the Number Pad mode.
Doppelte Buchstaben bei Huawei P30 lite0 votos 1 comentario
ich nutze ein Huawei P30 lite (Modell MAR-LX1B, Build 10.0.0.290, Android 10, EMUI 10.0.0). Sehr oft erscheinen bei der Eingabe Buchstaben doppelt (z.B. Eingabbe), obwohl ich die Buchstaben auf der Swiftkeytastatur definitiv nur einmal eingegeben habe.
Problem with capital letters0 votos 1 comentarioHello, When I start writing a text, the shift button is automatically activated so that the first letter, of the first word, of the first sentence is capitalized. But for some time now, this button has been automatically activated in shift lock and therefore my whole sentence is in capital letters, which is annoying and wastes time and comfort. Is there a parameter to change so that the shift key no longer locks automatically but only remains for the first letter?
Changing size in landscape mode0 votos 0 comentariosHello, your keypad is really nice and I like it. I have got Huawei Mate 10 Pro with Android 10 and unfortunately I met with one problem. Keypad size in portrait mode is perfect and with constant size, but in landscape mode is size changing. Please, check video, it shows this problem https://youtu.be/7WqGrbjJfdc As you can see, firstly I am in landscape mode with keyboard size which I set, secondly I moved into the portrait mode and when I moved back to the landscape mode, then is keyboard size changed and is so big. I hope that you will find solution and in next updates it could be solved
Add custom keyboard layout / propose new layout1 voto 0 comentarios
SwiftKey is my keyboard of choice for my Samsung S20 phone. I recently started using Dex in parts of my day job, and as a programmer I use Vim and have my finger muscle memory quite settled for Norwegian Dvorak. Unfortunately I can only find English Dvorak available as a choice in SwiftKey, but on both OSX and Linux are Norwegian Dvorak available as default (and easy to install on Windows), would this be possible to add to SwiftKey as well?
Not having my usual keyboard layout available in Dex makes it much harder to adopt it even more in my day job. My ultimate goal is to completely remove the need for a personal computer, and only use my phone for my programming job. To do this I need keyboard layout I know.
I am willing to contribute quite a lot of effort to make this possible, if it is something I could add myself. There are many open source repositories with the layout already specified in Xml and other layout formats: https://www.google.com/search?q=Norwegian+dvorak+github
