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?

Red line under text4 votos 1 comentarioI was using my keyboard very normally and one time i am using whatsapp i found a redline under my arabic words, I have swiftkey installed for around 7 months with the same settings and that never happened, i have read all the posts saying it's not a swiftkey error, but still it only happens with swiftkey, I turned off the spell checker of Gboard and it's turned off while I'm using gboard only, when i use swiftkey again I get the redline. 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...).

Compact resize button is bothering4 votos 3 comentarios
Hi! I find the New square "full keyboard" button when in compact Mode bothering. I only use compact because I love to use my phone with one hand and with the button I keep making the keyboard complete all the time. Could you Make it optional in order to remove it? Thanks
Auto incognito switching and typing4 votos 0 comentarios
It's awesome to know that SwiftKey can switch to Incognito mode automatically in Chrome/Firefox incognito tabs. But there's an issue.
The keyboard theme/UI for the incognito mode, does not show Accented characters. This causes serious problems while typing or want to type fast.
Solution : 1. Implement the feature, to show all Accented characters, custom theme in incognito mode (just don't track the typing, and that's all).
2. Give option to turn off Auto incognito switching.
Gif URL malformed in Discord on Android4 votos 9 comentarios
Since the update that added bing search my gif search urls always come out malformed with bing based urls instead of basic giphy urls. This occurs mostly in discord. An example of the malformed url is https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?id=OGC.4dd61a717cf29c08687669441f42f628&pid=Api&rurl=https%3a%2f%2fmedia.giphy.com%2fmedia%2frrFcUcN3MFmta%2fgiphy.gif&ehk=S38Kmk26VoJ2AhyuITzsNQ where as the expected url is https://media.giphy.com/media/rrFcUcN3MFmta/giphy.gif
I know that this url is technically valid but discord is unable to properly expand the gifs sent in this format and instead sends them as stills.
Any ideas how to make it use the proper giphy url?

Quick access to plain text emoticons4 votos 1 comentario
don't know if this has already been asked, cannot find it in the forum search. The thing is I'm an old guy, I've started chatting when we still had the BBSs and Internet was almost unknown. Because of that I hate all those damn emojis, all that bitmap wasting just to show stupid faces, and silly objects, and flags and who knows what other weird stuff. So, is there a way to quick access the text-only emoticons, ie, those you can type by just using brackets, two colon and the like :-) :-/ :-(
Previous versions, I could keep the Enter key pressed and at least a top row with a clock icon appeared, and from there I could see my last typed emoticons. Now, text emoticons are not under the clock anymore and the text emoticons tab :-) is just the last one, and it's very impractical to access it this way. Can the order of those tabs be changed? Could you bring the text emoticons back to the history tab?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Deactivate auto spacing after inserting a period ('.')4 votos 6 comentarios
typing web addresses into the address bar of the browser always inserts an auto space after hitting the dot key. Thus I always have to correct by using backspace and type again.
Same problem with other situations, where I do not automatically need an auto space after the dot, e. g., when typing mail addresses.
there a way ariund it and have a setting option, allowing to deactivate auto spaces after a dot?

[Feature Request] Make Keyboard Theme and the Navigation Bar match colors4 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 Symbols4 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.
German layout - long press4 votos 2 comentarios
I just started to use Swiftkey, and I love it, but the fact how the letters ß, ä, ö, and ü are handled when typing in German are a complete deal-breaker for me. It's such a simple thing, and I honestly don't understand why it's not implemented in a smart way.
In order to type an 'ä', you have to long press the letter 'a', then the '@' appears beneath your finger, and you have to move to the letter 'ä'. In German, the letter 'ä' is just a normal character, and it is used a lot more often than the letter '@', so it should be the other way round. After the long press, the 'ä' should automatically appear beneath your finger, so you just have to long press it, without the extra move.
The same thing applies to ß (after long pressing the 's', the ß should be standard, instead of the '#'), for o (where the 9 is standard instead of ö), and the 'ü' as well.
Gboard, and any other keyboard (to my knowledge) implement it in that way. So you just have to long press the u, in order to get a ü, and so on. It's fine if you have to move your finger for characters that you don't need that often, but ä, ü, ö and ß should be the first choice when long pressing.
Smarter capitalization of "I"4 votos 0 comentarios
This has been asked for about a year ago, but I'll try again... I've enabled two languages in the SwiftKey (beta) app. My native tongue and English. Switching between the two is seamless, which I enjoy, but the app keeps capitalizing my I's in my mother tongue as well (where "i" is a standalone word that shouldn't be capitalized mid-sentence). It would be great if the app could for example look at the word before "i" and then suggest capitalizing only if the word is English.
For now I have to manually correct it, which takes a lot of time in the long run.
Keyboard covers input field - impossible to write, predictions not working4 votos 4 comentarios
I'm having a big issue with SwiftKey on my HTC ONE M7 on Android 5.
The keyboard covers the input field in almost any messenger (WA, GG, TG,...) and makes it impossible to write.
The predictions are also not click-able. When I tap on one of the predictions, the keyboard disappears, as if I would tap on the Messengers window.
I have some Screenshots showing the bug but this forum doesn't seem to have an option to attach images. How can I post an image?
With this serious bug, SwiftKey is totally useless for me.
I can't see the text I'm writing.
I can't tap on the predictions.
The built-in HTC Sense Keyboard works just fine without this issue, so it has to be SwiftKey that's causing the bug.
Please resolve this issue as soon as possible. I can't live without SwiftKey!
Manual language swap4 votos 2 comentarios
Hi, is it possible to change languages manually? When I have two or more languages together (i have Czech, English and French) and use flow, the resulting words of the flow gesture tend to be wrong often (a lot). Even if i use only Czech and English which is necessary in my every day life it is not working well. I would appreciate manual language switching as was possible in the past. Also separate personal dictionaries would be implied.(added words)
[FEATURE REQUEST] Make the space bar bigger!!4 votos 5 comentarios
I see so many requests to make the spacebar bigger to eliminate the problem with accidentally hitting the period but yet no response or fix from Swiftkey, so I thought I would add on a post. I really want to love Swiftkey and keep switching back to it every couple of weeks but then that darn period problem annoys me so much that I end up quickly switching to another keyboard. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Can barely type anymore.4 votos 10 comentarios
When I'm typing on another forum the keys have stopped working properly and even when I tap the prediction words it puts in other things. Often pressing spacebar pus in letters like T randomly. Just now trying to type T with a period after wouldn't let me.
It's seems most problematic on that site.

New quick paste feature in SwiftKey Beta 18.104.22.168 votos 1 comentario
Just tried it and you have to enable the clipboard feature, and then the copied text shows up as a prediction so if you're in a text field that has prediction disabled (like say... a password entry) it doesn't work. Why can't you implement a simple paste button that will paste whatever was copied? I would mainly use this feature to paste copied passwords from LastPass in apps/websites where getting the paste dialog to show up is either a pain or impossible. I do NOT want a list of my last used passwords showing up on my screen, which is why I disable the clipboard feature to begin with!
As an example, Fleksy has a clipboard feature that lets you swipe from the number row to a row of keys with three functions: Copy, Cut, Paste. No copied text ever shows up on the screen and it will paste the text into any text entry available. SwiftKey could easily have similar functionality by, for example, adding a paste button into the comma key long press that activates voice entry or something similar.
