[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Respondida105 votos 106 comentarios
I like the flow and I like gestures. Gestures have an option to delete by swiping to the left ⬅, and to hide keyboard by sweeping down ⬇, but I'd like to see a feature where we could move pointer, just by sliding our finger on the keyboard.
How can I disable multilingual predictions? Respondida24 votos 43 comentarios
How can I disable the multilingual prediction feature (bug).
It is unwanted, uncalled fore, unnecessary, useless, counterproductive, counter-intuitive, and annoying.
Otherwise your app is awesome, until the next update (which hopefully will get rid of this feature) I will be switching to another keyboard, which is a shame.
Old Phone to New Phone Android Respondida24 votos 63 comentarios
I'm struggling here to transfer from my Samsung 6 to the new Samsung 8 with all my predictions from the old phone. First I did a backup sync on my old phone, and then did a backup sync on my new S8. Nothing happened. Do I need to delete the app on my old phone? Dose anyone have an answer.
I will say that the tech support is very weak in regards to the response time, and information. I'm surprised being a Microsoft owned product that they don't offer better support as I have been waiting more than three days for my answer.
Thanks for your response

I want to disable all emojis. Help! Respondida17 votos 61 comentarios
I updated my app and there is a change I do not like. It used to be that you would long press the enter key to get the Emoji menu.
On pages like Facebook and Reddit, whenever I hit the enter key it immediately brings up the Emojis. I have to long press to hit enter.
It is not doing it here. When I hit enter it enters the new line. It seems to be limited to social media. The only other option I have seen is to have a dedicated Emoji key and then it makes other buttons more narrow and when I go to hit the dedicated comma button, it accidentally hits the dedicated emoji button.
I am fine with not having emojis at all. Is there a way to stop it from doing this on social media? It never did before. I love SwiftKey and I've use it since it was a paid app. I'm not liking this, though.

Turn off auto - cursor move Respondida12 votos 13 comentarios
The feature that I find the most annoying, and would like the option to turn off, is the auto move of the cursor to the end of the word. When I want to insert/correct a character, I press on the location within the word, and the cursor moves to the end of the word! I have all the arrow keys displayed at the bottom of the keyboard, so pressing on the location & adjusting with the arrow keys is super fast. Except the cursor jumps to the end of the word! I think this feature was added a couple of years ago. It still gets in the way. I haven't found a fast workaround, so an option to turn it off would be much appreciated.
More than 3 predictive suggestions? Respondida12 votos 21 comentarios
How can I get more predictive suggestions than the default 3? In the Czech language quite a lot of words are longer and differ in one or two letters at the end (such as překrásný, překrásná, překrásní, překrásně, překrásné, překrásno, překrásnou,...). The prediction then is useless if I anyway need to type the whole word. In the old times my Nokia was able to expand for me the whole list of other similar words to choose from.
Please stop suggesting words from language B when I'm typing in language A Respondida11 votos 8 comentarios
this seriously annoys me to no end sometimes. I use German and English language and it happens so many times that whenever I press space for auto correct/complete it just fill in a word from the other language which makes no sense and it doesn't even exist in that way in the language I currently use.

Ctrl+Key hotkeys Respondida10 votos 6 comentarios
I'm not that sure if I've got the right place to make suggestions, but I have an idea for SwiftKey.
I've recently seen on a Huawei mobile someone using the default keyboard like this:
It was swiping from the Swipe button (Bottom-left. It's second function was to go to settings) to the letter A and all the text was getting selected, just like a Ctrl+A on the PC.
Swipe button + X was cutting the text. Swiping from the Swipe Button to D was opening Google searching the selected text. + C was copying, +V pasting the text.
And these are only a few of the cool features it has. It would be nice if we would have them, as the Huawei keyboard still has problems on other things like the dictionary for some language & things.
And by the way, thank you for SwiftKey, the fastest keyboard on the market. :D

How can I disable incognito theme? Respondida8 votos 10 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.
[FR] Don't remove preceding space when inserting an underscore (_) Respondida8 votos 7 comentarios
Is it possible to have SwiftKey *not* remove the preceding space when an underscore is being inserted?
This issue (along with a few others) was raised as far as December 2014. Unfortunately, it hasn't received attention from the developers.
It's rather frustrating having to go back through typed text to correct things from
"It_should_ be fixed immediately" to "it _should_ be fixed immediately".
Ordinarily it wouldn't be a problem if you could simply backspace and correct it. However, fixing this 'typo' requires a careful placement of the caret (which isn't at all easy) then inserting a space and then moving to the end of the line to continue with the text.
This slows text input especially when writing formatted text on WhatsApp and Telegram, both of which use the underscore for formatting.

[Feature request] Voice recognition WITHOUT Google Respondida7 votos 6 comentarios
Hi all. I've been using SwiftKey for a veeery long time and it's amazing. I really liked the voice integration but a while back I started to get away from Google products (yes, Android is from Google but you can strip quite a lot of their stuff from it) and I (sadly) discovered that after removing Google Search app the voice dictation stopped working.
SwiftKey is now owned by Microsoft and MS has it's own voice recognition. There is also a Common Voice project from Mozilla (https://voice.mozilla.org/) which should be more open/transparent (though they are only collecting data / training for now).
Having alternative voice input would be awesome!
Keeps replacing "I'm" with "I" even with autocorrect turned off. Respondida7 votos 33 comentarios
I cannot for the life of me get SwiftKey to stop replacing "I'm" with "I". It happens about 50% of the time and makes for some incredibly odd sounding sentences like "hey I going to the store" or "I on my way".
If I just repeatedly flow "I'm" this happens: "I I'm In I I'm I I'm I I'm I I'm I'm" where it alternates between the two, this is after telling it "do not predict I again".
I even turned off autocorrect and it STILL does it.
Device is an AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S8 running Android 7.0, using SwiftKey Beta 188.8.131.52. Steps to reproduce: try to type (using flow) "I'm".
Multiple Language Priority Respondida7 votos 26 comentarios
I use a few different languages with SwiftKey and it works great, but I use English the most. But ever since I added the other languages I communicate in, SwiftKey seems to be suggesting foreign words over common words in English. Like "N°" instead of "No" and "Só" instead of "So".
Is there a way to hint to SwiftKey to prioritize English words so I stop sending "N°, I don't want to go to that restaurant" to my friends?

New toolbar introduced, how can I hide or disable it? (2020) Respondida5 votos 8 comentarios
A new toolbar with many new features has been introduced (https://9to5google.com/2018/03/15/swiftkey-update-toolbar-stickers/). However I don't need it and it disrupts my workflow (buttons present in the text input, like Telegram stickers, are now 1 row more distant from text input).
How can I disable it?
Thanks for the answers and the interest.
You can disable it by pressing the button on the left of all the words prediction, the one that you see in the picture, and it will be hidden.
Problems with SwiftKey keyboard placement and OnePlus Gesture Navigation Respondida5 votos 10 comentarios
Hi - I have a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android v10, set up for gesture control. As such, I no longer have any navigation buttons on the bottom of my display.
I am having a big problem with SwiftKey, where the keyboard can't be moved to the bottom of my display:
Aside from losing valuable screen real estate, this causes a lot of SwiftKey failures for me.
For example, If I am trying to type with the space bar, or enter key (or, any of the bottom keys), and accidentally hit just a little bit lower than the bottom row key, SwiftKey registers it as a "close keyboard" event, and I lose whatever I was typing. This is a HUGE pain in the rear!
Please update SwiftKey to allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen when the user has selected a gesture navigation method. Note that there are multiple manufacturers that have their own version of gesture navigation (like OnePlus), so the solution should be generic enough to detect that any gesture navigation implementation will allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen.

[Not a bug] No prediction in Excel cells Respondida5 votos 39 comentarios
i've been using Swiftkey for a long time to edit spreadsheets in Excel for Android. After the last update (21/08 if i'm correct) the prediction words on the upper side of the swiftkey keyboard do not show up!
Before the update the prediction was working flawlessly when i was editing a cell. Did you change that on purpose or is it a bug. I hope it's just a bug because i need the predictions back!
