Symbol entry adds spaces wrongly Respondida0 votos 14 comentariosThere is ZERO reason for a space to be inserted before a colon. Maybe some symbols are ok with an inserted space but never that one. I spend a lot of effort removing spaces added before dashes as well. This has been a problem for YEARS and I would like an explanation as to why you would insert spaces that have to be removed and why you haven't corrected this. I assure you, there is no justification for this keyboard behavior -- it would be much better for users to have to enter the spaces they want before symbols than to remove the ones they don't -- so please make a fix.

Haptic Feedback broken since update Respondida0 votos 2 comentarios
Hello everyone, I updated my Swiftkey to version 220.127.116.11 and since then I do not have the standard android haptic feedback on my keystrokes anymore.
I tried to enable it via the settings in swiftkey, but only the swiftkeys own haptic feedback is working and I don't want to use those.
Using the setting "standard android vibration" doesn't do anything anymore. I also tried to restart the phone in case of a bug.
The system vibration via the samsung settings is enabled for all keyboards.
My android version is Android 10 with the latest security patch update from December.
Can't import my account, data, typing behavior, theme, etc. from old phone! Respondida0 votos 2 comentarios
Problem: THREE different account IDs! I can't determine how to log into my old SwiftKey Account on my new Android phone!
Here is the problem: I've been logged into SwiftKey since 2017 when I got my last mobile phone. Let's say, hypothetically, the e-mail address is: email@example.com
I click on that e-mail on the account settings/overview of the old phone and it shows me an account ID ending in "AAA" (made-up for simplicity's)
When I now log into the new phone with the Google Login button (I first assumed I used this option in the past but I can't remember!), I log in with my main Google account which goes by firstname.lastname@example.org. Okay, so the Account ID shown on the new phone ends in "BBB". Obviously, since they don't match, it can't be the right account. Trying to type also appears as if it knows nothing about my typing behavior.
Okay, so that's possible. Next, I try the Microsoft button to log in, as I expected, an account has been created with that email@example.com username, but I log into outlook to check on it and set a password. Here, the account ID is yet another and ends: in "CCC".
I'm running out of ideas. What other way could I have used in the past to login/create my account on SwiftKey? I would very much like to avoid losing all of my data. I don't know how to safely retrieve the cloud data from the old phone. As far as I understand it, there are no local backups or anything I could import myself. Please help.
Request - Automatic Dark Theme Respondida7 votos 5 comentarios
It would be nice to be able to select a darker keyboard theme that Swiftkey automatically switches to with the Android 10 System Dark theme.
Keys with Both Letters and Numbers Respondida0 votos 2 comentariosLooking at the keyboard the qwerty row keys (actually ALL rows) have numbers (in the case of qwerty) or symbols on the "top" of each key. Example: I want to enter "7" using the "u" key but have yet to discover how. What have I missed? I have been using SwiftKey for 2 days now and the Number row is UNchecked, which is my preference. The Number position is Left, also my preference.
"awkward" back with newest Android gestures when keyboard is up Respondida0 votos 4 comentariosSo, recently I have bought the new galaxy S20 and with it I have started to use the newest gestures. Everything is beautiful until the moment when I type something in keyboard and want to go "back" immediately without going touching above the keyboard to swipe from the side and then going back, because well the reachability in the area where there is keyboard is the best... The idea is that with the new gestures I can't go back when swiping from the side on the keyboard, it has to be done over it and I'd using whatsapp it may activate response mode on one of the previous messages... Other work around is adding "bring keyboard down" button which just ads bulk to the keyboard and I dont want it.. My sulution is that it would be veeeery nice to have a gesture tu pull down from the top of the keyboard to swipe down thus hiding the key board. Let's say from the middle of all 3 word suggestion "boxes"

How to change layout of symbols to mimic laptop Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioI would like the order of symbols to mimic the order from my laptop. In other words, I want to long press 1 and have the option to get the exclamation mark ! key. I key symbols for passwords and associate them in my head with their corresponding number. But the symbols page is layed out differently than a standard laptop keyboard. Is there a way to add symbols to a long press on a number?
How to disable auto backspace when using a punctuation mark? Respondida3 votos 3 comentarios
When using a punctuation mark such as colon ":" after inserting space after a word, swiftkey automatically remove the space and connects the punctuation mark with the word.
This was not the case in older versions.
How do we get rid of this behavior?
Also, another thing is that, after any punctuation mark, swiftkey automatically inserts a space after it. In older versions it used to happen only for periods "." , commas "," and semicolons ";"
But now it happens for colon ":" as well which I don't want.
Example for both problems:
While Texting: Life is sad :(
Turns to: Life is sad: (
Please help me fix this as well.

How do I stop the incognito notification from appearing? Respondida1 voto 1 comentarioFor a while, every time I turn incognito on I get a notification telling me that I am using incognito that covers my keyboard for a few seconds. I am familiar with the incognito mode and I don't want that thing to make me wait every time I use it. Is there any way to disable it? I tried looking in the setting but even the 'disable notifications' button doesn't prevent the disclaimer from popping up.

Bug: predictions stop working in Chrome constantly, requiring booting Respondida-1 votos 1 comentario
Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Android 10 with One UI 2.5
On the inside screen ("tablet" screen of the this foldable phone) the Swiftkey prediction stops working after a few uses: predictions show up properly above the keys but selecting a prediction actually doesn't fix the written erronuous text but only adds a space after the incorrectly typed text. This is clearly a bug.
It always works for one use after a boot, but soon stops working again. So I reboot a lot.
This only happens in Chrome, in the address bar and in any text fields of forms. Restarting the app (force close from settings/apps) and then restarting it from app list does not fix it, only a reboot does. It's problematic that it happens in Chrome because that is the app where I type the most. I cannot change from Chrome since it is forced to be used in our company (a multinational industrial giant) on Windows and I wish to sync the browser with my private Chrome user id on that computer.
I have no experience if prediction works properly on the front screen as I never type on it (it is too narrow to type with adult hands).
The phone has been in use for only two weeks. Removing Switfkey settings (cache + saved data) and the app and reinstallation do not fix the problem.
It is very very annoying, almost enough to stop using Swiftkey and go to the Samsung keyboard. But I'd hate to do that since I've used Swiftkey for a lot of years and it knows my writing very well know. It is great, the rare times it happens to work.
I would make a bug report but cannot find where.The app does not have a feedback option anywhere.
Microsoft Translate doesn't auto translate If we copy the message twice Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
I am using microsoft translator with WhatsApp.
It is working smooth when I was writing my message and It is simultaneously translating my messages. Then I just send it.
Furthermore, when I select the incoming message and press copy button while Microsoft Translator already selected from the keyboard shortcut, It is directly translating the incoming message. This is superb, however, when I copy it twice, It is not translating the message, only copy the message to clipboard. If I select different message and press copy again, It is translating automatically. And If I select it again, It is not translating the same message anymore.
I think there is a bug at the usage of translator. Is there any way to fix it or any solution, your kind reply would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

change emoji gender Respondida-3 votos 23 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.
Can I clean up my data and migrate it from my Google account to my Microsoft Account? Respondida1 voto 2 comentarios
I see a lot of issues here being blamed on using a Google account so figured it would be a good idea to switch over to my MS account whilst upgrading my phone. When I log out of my Google account in the app, it wipes all my data so I can't log in and sync with my MS account. There's an option to export my data which I can clean up using a json editor but no option to import it back in.
I switched over to SwiftKey from Swype (which I'd been using on my Symbian phone) a decade ago and being a Brit company I've been evangelical with my support for the app over the years. It has always managed to stay ahead of or at least keep up with the curve. However, over the last couple of years, it is increasingly playing catchup. I only notice the gap when upgrading my phone and having to temporarily use Gboard or Samsung Keyboard. With all the data you have collated and MS's AI knowledge hopefully you can shake off the cobwebs and get back on track or maybe next time, we'll stick with the default keyboard. Oh, the irony!

Backspace doesn't work in GitHub Codespaces, GBoard works better Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioGitHub Codespaces uses the Monaco Editor so anything that uses that is affected by this: Azure DevOps, Azure App Service Editor, and many many more sites. Easy repro steps: 1. Go here: https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor 2. Type something in one of the examples and then hit backspace a few times You expect backspace to remove the characters but instead it does nothing. I hope this can be fixed so I can use GitHub Codespaces on my phone!
