Recently I updated swift key to version 18.104.22.168. Mostly I'm using English language and sometimes my regional languages (i.e. Hindi and Gujarati belongs to India). But with the last update this three languages are mixed up and there is no option for English isolation. I know swift key developer has done this for good but this isn't good. It's irritating , the pridiction taking too much time because of the three languages. To use English fluently I have to remove my local languages but. I really need them sometimes. Older version of swift key allowed to switch between this three languages but this version is worst than ever. I am using swift key since I bought my first android phone. And believe Me I really hate to type on touch screen without swift key. Currently I am not using swift key, I'm moving on to another. Thank you so much for making such a great app. I hope this issue will be solved and soon I will be able to use swift key again.

When making word suggestions, there are only ever 3 words to choose from. I seem to remember Swype offered 5 or 6, but I can't remember how they did it. Please add more choices.
Change default character when I press and hold down a letter No planeada2 votos 4 comentarios
So my problem is I'm using this keyboard with a language has special letters (á, é...). When I tap on a letter and keep my finger on it a little window will pop up above that letter with suggested characters. For example, if I hold down letter A it witt suggest these 2 characters : '@' and 'á'. The problem is I basivally want to use letter 'á' 98% of the time but the default first suggestion is the @ so it will take me another move with my finget zo reach the 'á' character. And this is super frustrating. If there is any option to switch these characters as default first suggestion it will be a big help.
Better cursor positioning No planeada2 votos 3 comentarios
I often have trouble properly positioning the cursor somewhere inside the text to add a word or change the phrasing. I find my thumb is usually obscuring the small blue indicator and so I simply can't see where it is. An iOS like feature which would enlarge the small area around the cursor position would be ideal, but I don't think that's available. I tried enabling the cursor keys, which helps somewhat, but feels somewhat antiquated and inefficient.
Got any tips on how to deal with this? How does everyone else do it?
Thanks a lot for your kind support!
Please please please add T9 support. No planeada1 voto 0 comentarios
I've seen several posts on the forum asking for T9 support to be added. I want to add my voice to these people.
Not all of us have the dexterity or patience needed to use tiny QWERTY keys. Sony had a great T9 keyboard in the past (before they scrapped their keyboard in favour of SwiftKey no less). I've been using SwiftKey for over two years now. I've tried both Swype and regular tapping but it's still a lot of hard work to type well.
I like SwiftKey's feature packed keyboard but the one feature that's most lacking is support for the one keypad and typing style that was developed for phones. Please add it. It can't be that hard. Sony did it. And now you're Sony's default keyboard so please bring it back.

Is it possible to collapse or Turn off the suggestion / Prediction row bar ?!
Is the SDK no longer available? No planeada1 voto 1 comentario
I've used this keyboard for years and decided I might have a go at making a theme for myself. I was excited to read about a SDK release a half decade ago, but the trail went cold.
I have used the forum search and Google and I can't find anything but rumors on a rival using it and nothing more.

Long Press Duration not in even numbers No planeada0 votos 0 comentarios
SwiftKey > Typing > Keys > Long Press Duration
I want to set this to 200 ms, but it's not possible. I can get 199 or 201. Maybe I'm just being OCD and 201 ms is virtually the same as 200, but I think it will look better.
Maybe a 5 or 10 ms increment would work better.

Remove the prediction bar option No planeada0 votos 1 comentario
Hi! I have a lil' bit of a problem here... I've been using your app on and off for several years now (for some reason on my older phones it came preinstalled and without an option to uninstall it so i had to remove updates and disable in case of not using it).
It's a nice app but it lacks one very important option... the one where you can remove that freaking crappy suggestion bar that eats from my display when i type messages.. I've tried changing to my language but I never use it..
On the first screenshot is that useless bar with the autocorrect off and on the second it's the keyboard without a language selected (an even bigger mess).
I know that you guys want my/our data badly and try to scoop it little by little, but at least for those 0.1% of us that find it completely useless at least give us the option to BURN AND DESTROY the living hell of it... For the time being i'll go and try to find some other keyboard that hopefully has that option regardless of how unsafe it is but it would be nice to hear back from you guys.
[Feature Request] Preview-Size Option No planeada0 votos 4 comentarios
The Left and right Predictions is smaller since recent updates.
Please add an option, at least, to change the size back to full width, like before.
