keyboard disappears sometimes and produces a blank screen Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioWhen using in text mags, sometimes when I reply to a mug, the screen goes blank with no mesh history and no keyboard. Only solution is to switch to Samsung keyboard.
Alter existing theme Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioI would like to edit an existing theme - change the key colour slightly for example - but my only option seems to be to create a whole theme image from scratch. I don't know how to do this and it seems like a lot of work just to lighten the key colour a bit! Is there a designer tool out there or do I literally have to spend a year closeted with Paint?
How to get more than 5 languages Respondida0 votos 19 comentarios
Is there anything I can do to add more than 5 languages? While I can add more to my list, I cannot activate more than 5 at any given time.
It is also quite a nuisance that you cannot instruct SwiftKey to restrict suggestions to a single language. If languages share the same fundamental layout principles, auto suggestions (auto-correct) will consider several languages at once which can make life quite hard.
For instance, German, French, English (UK) and Dutch will be "running" simultaneously, sometimes producing ridiculous suggestions.

Thai dictionary bug Respondida0 votos 2 comentarios
All of the preloaded dictionary for the Thai language use
this symbol " ํ " (which is rarely used to nearly non-existent in Thai) plus this vowel " า " instead of
a single vowel " ำ ".
so all words including very common words like water "น้ำ", remember "จำ" are not available in both typing and gesture flow.
This issue is quite buggy and a nuisance.
Grammar errors in language pack Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
For Serbian language some really bad grammar was created. Any verb in future tense was incorrectly created. Example, to say "(I) will do", correct way to say it is "uradiću". However, there is quite common error made by people who weren't paying attention on primary school levels, where such persons write "uradi ću"
Unfortunately, your devs / employees taken for creating Serbian language pack were from this education group, creating the whole dictionary extra annoying. Whenever I have a new verb describing something I have to do, I'm forced to remove about 1-5 words from the dictionary.
Is there a way to handle this? I even paid for this product some time ago, when it wasn't owner by microsoft and offered absolutely free.
One-handed mode, to Full and Back Respondida1 voto 1 comentario
I use the one handed mode most of the time and there's an Expand button at the corner; By pressing it, the keyboard turns to full.
My question is, how do I go from a full mode to a one handed mode using a button like a likewise above mentioned Expand button? (Not by going into the settings again).
Shiftkey wont add specific word Respondida1 voto 1 comentario
Other words get added automatically after typing. The word "agapi" which is greek for "love" won't get added no matter what I tried: typing it 5 times, tapping the word, deleting the word "agape" which gets suggested instead, uninstalling-reinstalling, turning sync on-off.
I really dont know what else to do, why is that word broken? Can someone else try to enter it and see if its suggested after?

Swiftkey closes in landscape mode on Sony XPERIA 5 Respondida1 voto 5 comentarios
Hello good, it is impossible for me to use this keyboard in horizontal format in the Sony Xperia 5, it closes automatically and unexpected closing error appears, however in vertical it works well.
Other keyboards from other creators do work well without problems in horizontal and vertical, only the Switkey gives me an error.
I have always loved using this keyboard on all my devices, but it is impossible because of this error on my Xperia 5.
I do not know if it is because it is not adapted to the 21: 9 of this phone, I already say that the others work well and I tried to reinstall it 5 times, delete my data and it remains the same.

Sticker support in android (Feature Request)0 votos 0 comentarios
It was better if the SwiftKey app supported some stickers like others keyboards in the market does.
- Stickers available in the keyboard can't be used as pure stickers in apps like WhatsApp. It's right now being sent as gif or images. An ability to sent these stickers in apps like WhatsApp, telegram... Like native stickers would be super cool.
- If users could make their own sticker packs for the keyboard and publish it in the app like custom themes in the app so that other users could also download it, it would be a nice addition. (would be outstanding if we could link those stickers with emojies like the feature in telegram so that once we hit the emoji the stickers linked will be predicted).
- It would be so nice if the emoji mashup stickers available in Gboard( swift key's major competitor) is also available in SwiftKey keyboard.
Wrong word selection constantly6 votos 64 comentarios
Lately this app has taken a downturn. It constantly puts in the wrong word. When I backspace to fix it, the word I just input shows up. Ugh! Why wasn't it selected to start with. I've stopped and deliberately made sure I swiped exactly from letter to letter, and it will still put in what it wants to, but what I swiped or what my history would predict. It not only suggests by preemptively puts in a word I rarely use over what I've just used or have used hundreds of times since I stated this app.

Prediction bar hidden Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioHi all, I've used SwiftKey kb for a long time & still think it's the best kb for Android. With the trend toward more chat support and away from telephone support, e.g., Verizon support, etc., I've noticed that more often than not that is when the prediction bar (& toolbar) is inaccessible. For me, that is just when it is most important. I've checked the FAQs and tried various modes & layouts and either I'm missing something or the issue has not been addressed. IS it possible to access the Prediction bar (most important) and the toolbar (not nearly so) in these situations? Any help is greatly appreciated. Mike

So many themes, but not one that looks good4 votos 2 comentarios
I have several issues with the SwiftKey themes:
1. There are lots of themes, but most of them feature the exact same key layout with another background. These 'themes' should not be listed as separate themes, but as variations of a theme. The most sensible thing to do to get some structure in this mess, is creating several keyboard layouts (i.e. with rectangular keys, rounded corners, no border,...), then let the user choose whether or not to display secondary symbols on the keys, and then offer color options.
2. There is no reason to put the SwiftKey logo in plain sight on the spacebar. I know which keyboard I'm using, and I 'm happy to tell other people if they ask, but I don't want your logo all the time in my sight. Put it in the '+'-menu if you absolutely need to show it somewhere.
3. There are almost no beautiful themes. I know this is very subjective, and yes, there are themes with balloons and fireworks as background images, and I can even use a custom photo,... But to me, a perfect keyboard is the keyboard that is not "in your face"; it's a keyboard that you don't even notice using. It should be clean, and have no showy interface elements. These themes are (almost) not available to choose from. The only theme that comes close to this, is 'Minimal material light', but even in a 'minimal' theme, you couldn't stop using colors and painted the shift, backspace, enter, emoji and symbols keys lilac.
Please get rid of the nineties keyboard layouts and introduce some modern ones, and make them fully customizable.
[Feature Request] Norwegian dvorak keyboard layout.2 votos 5 comentarios
Hi. I love SwiftKey with its close to perfect predictions. I am also a dvorak user. The English dvorak layout works good when typing English, but since I'm Norwegian I frequently use our special letters (æøå) when typing Norwegian. Therefore I would like to request the possibility of the Norwegian dvorak layout in swiftkey. The layout can be found here: dvorak.tg90nor.net

African-American emojis Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioHow do I get African-American emojis on SwiftKey keyboard?
Duplicate letters when editing in a text box.-1 votos 6 comentarios
Hello, Whenever I edit a text that I've already typed or pasted into a text box, I get random word pairs that are fused into one wrong word by a duplicate of either the last letter of the first of the two or theffirst letter of the second. For example, I just typed "SwiftKey bugs" into a search box, but when I try to edit that to "SwiftKey repeated letters bug," I get either "SwiftKey repeateddletters bug" or "SwiftKeyrrepeatedlletters bug." Instead of a space between "repeated" and "letters," I keep getting a duplicate of the last letter in the first word or of the first letter in the second word. This is a constant issue that occurs many times daily and one that I can easily replicate. Thanks.
Hide change keyboard button to save space Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioCurrently when the keyboard is popping up it is showing change keyboard button and one down arrow button (to hide keyboard) together they are taking too much space raising the level of actual layout/keys..

Blank emoji screens in Wordscapes chat Respondida0 votos 3 comentariosWhen using in game chat in Wordscapes I have black screens for different emogi sets.

Predictive text adding extra words Respondida1 voto 3 comentariosI thought the issue was with my old phone for a year, but then it persisted when I got a new phone and I realized after some tests that SwiftKey is the issue. It will happen several times a day now and is getting worse. If I intend to write "I see what you mean" and I press the predictive text for SEE, it sometimes will add a word and type "see that" which ends up with me sending "I see that what you mean" This is infuriating and constant. I will send a work text and say "The front gate is open" and it will end up being "the front door gate is an open" and I look like an idiot. None of these added words are visible in the prediction area at all while I am writing the message and I can't find anything online about it. Im only writing this because Id rather not leave SwiftKey and I hope there is some fix. I have autocorrect off so no words should change themselves at all.
