I have tried and tried and searched high and low and still have not been able to disable the predictive Emoji feature. I cannot stand it. It makes editing a text or whatever I'm possible because if you touch the little gray box all the sudden you get a dozen pictures of dogs or cats or hats or whatever it is you typed in and they decided you would rather do it in pictures than in words. I am not a 14 year old little girl hanging out at the mall. None of the instructions that are available and none of the blogs or chat rooms or anything has any relevant instruction as to how to disable this feature. Even when I go into settings and think I have disabled it it still is not disabled. I do not want that little gray box around the word hat or cat or rat or dog or chair or anything like that. I just want to be able to type plain text. What am I doing wrong?

I blog a lot I do this for a living (not in English), and I do it with a phone and unfortunately there is no alternative to this keyboard for me.

Why they dont show up and work when I use my devices? I use a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 mostly (Exynos chipset). did work till now, Whati is solution? It should be fixed about yesterday.

Automatic Insertion of Space after Punctuation2 votos 1 comentario
Please add an option to turn off the insert of a space after punctuation. I would like to know what I am typing is actually what gets entered without the application inserting a space after a period, comma or other punctuation.
Please add an option to completely turn this behavior off or back on as the user decides.
Can't Restore my Data, and I'm logged in1 voto 3 comentarios
It's almost 2 months now.. I had to reset my phone, and now all my prescriptions and data are not syncing.
I checked my account data on the website, and it still there. I tried logging out of my account on the app, I tried deleting it and reinstalling, I've tried many things.
I've noticed that is no one is answering nor replying to everyone who is facing this problem.. I really really hope this is not permanent.. I've been using this keyboard since 2012! Imagine losing all that!
Swiping using a...0 votos 0 comentarios
Whenever I am swiping and I need to use the letter 'a', the word ends and it starts over. As u can imagine, this is very aggravating becuz obviously we all use a, a lot, it only happens when I'm swiping, also another thing, it always gives me wrong words, even when I am precise on my swiping... It just took me 10 mins to write this post!!!!
? And ! Placement0 votos 0 comentarios
When I first started using SwiftKey, the exclamation point (!) was closer to the right side of the keyboard than the question mark (?).
At some point and time, that configuration was changed.. And now the third row down in the numbers section ends with: ! ? +
Is there anyway to return those two keys on the keyboard to the position that they used to be in? I'm tired of hitting the wrong keys on the keyboard.
Thanks for your time and consideration
Voice button placement28 votos 60 comentarios
SwiftKey is the best. The only thing I wish I could change was the voice dictation button placement. On big phones it is hard to get to. Give me the option to place on right side if screen (like gboard).

[Feature Request] Turn off flow trails Respondida5 votos 4 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.

Disable odd place names and other weird proper nouns in autocorrect.0 votos 1 comentario
The SwiftKey dictionary seems to be chock full of odd place names and other proper nouns and autocorrect unfortunately uses them. Is there a way to delete or disable them, other than deleting them one by one as they come up (that solution is unworkable as there seems to be an inexhaustible supply of them).
These range from Indian names to weird place names probably from the northeast or the west coast (I'm in Texas).

@ switched with " when using hardware keyboard0 votos 0 comentarios
I use Samsung Flow on my computer. This allows me to use my computer keyboard to reply to messages. On occasion I like to take full control of the screen.

Is there a fix for this? I have looked around and I am on QWERTY.

change emoji gender Respondida0 votos 18 comentarios
Okay how do i explain it. So, some of the emojis on my swiftkey keyboard are only male or female. For example ( 🤷) how do i pick the male one?
fyi i can see the male one when someone else is typing it.
Also, there's an option on gboard to pick it. I just don't like the keyboard. I prefer SwiftKey.
Voice typing doesn't work (Android 6.0.1)0 votos 1 comentario
I have voice typing (voice to text, offline) enabled, and it works well with the Gboard keyboard. However, in Swiftkey 184.108.40.206 the touch to speak button never turns blue or otherwise allows voice input. Instead, I get an audible ding sound which indicates an error, and I get the diagnostic "try again".

I welcome. I had to in the phone carry the factory presets out. After new SwiftKey installing and logging into the account Google, I don't have my written words. Why?

How can I disable incognito theme? Respondida7 votos 9 comentarios
I am not liking this new theme and how it automatically takes over my custom theme. I've been a big fan of SwiftKey, but this will force me to change keyboards. I absolutely do not like the layout change that happens. Please give an option to change.
[Feature Request] Turn off auto spaces100 votos 133 comentarios
How can I turn off the feature which adds a space after every predicted word I select, or punctuation mark? It should only insert a space if I then decide to add another word. Having to delete excess spaces at the ends of things, or sometimes after the "#" in a hash tag, is really getting old quickly.
Stats keeps showing up0 votos 0 comentarios
Love Swiftkey but ready to uninstall.
Multiple times I wake my phone up and rather than my home screen I see the Swift Key Stats page. I never turned it on, never asked to see it but it keeps showing up.
Just downloaded the newest version with the same issues.
I have a Galaxy S7 This started yesterday. ANNOYING
I don't care about keystrokes saved etc. I don't want to see that every time I wake up my phone. I want my home screen back.
Deactivate the GIF button Respondida2 votos 12 comentarios
Hi. I would like to know if there is a way to deactivate the GIF option. Not the emoji, just the GIF part. I keep sending the same gif over and over by mistake and it even finds its way into text messages making them MMS.
Is there anyway to deactivate this feature? Thank you
Annoying auto spacing0 votos 1 comentario
Hello Swiftkey developers:
Please turn off the auto space behavior; it's very annoying.
I'd suggest the app checking input field and turn this off is the input field is an email address or logging in types.

Confusing white UI!!0 votos 0 comentarios
So I've been using SwiftKey on my One Plus 6T and if I had any complaints it would be that why is it unlike the Gboard that the bottom ui stays white, I believe that's the reason why I found it so hard to switch and why I always miss my space at and hit the home key. Do you guys know any fixes?

Predictions gone after phone reset2 votos 5 comentarios
I just performed a factory reset on my Huawei P30 Pro, and now all my word predictions are gone. I've tried all SwiftKey's troubleshooting advice, and backing up the app on my old iPhone, where all my predictions are working, then syncing on the Huawei, but still no luck. All is gone.
Do any of you experience the same issue? And does anyone have a solution? I've never had this problem when resetting my iPhone, and I'm quite disappointed right now.
Hope to hear from you.
Password showing in BANK website. Security Flaw!1 voto 2 comentarios
I've never had this problem before today.
At the password entry page for my online banking website, the keyboard had previously hidden the predictive bar. However just a while ago in the same password page, the predictive text bar was not hidden and it was showing what I typed .
Worse of all it was saving my password as an autocomplete option!
The website address is correct and secure. Is this a bug that SwiftKey doesn't recognise the password entry page?
Learned words not appearing.1 voto 0 comentarios
After syncing to a new phone successfully, learned words and my heat map don't show up. The transfer worked fine on old phones. I see a lot of people have had this problem lately. Is it being worked on at all? What should we do in the mean time?
