How to hide prediction bar on swift key keyboard
[Request] Permanent undocked split-view1 voto 0 comentarios
On my tablet my favorite keyboard layout is the split (thumb) view, combined with undocked mode. Thats simply perfect, because the space between the to key-halfes is free to see the real content.
The Problem is, that it always switches back to docked mode when i move it to near to the bottom.
Could we have a permanent undocked mode? Or at least make the empty space of the docked split-view transparent?

Voice button placement36 votos 64 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).
Unwanted auto-correct, even when turned off0 votos 2 comentarios
If I type a word that starts with a capital letter, followed by another word that starts with a capital letter, SwiftKey uncapitalises the first word! I have auto-correct and auto-capitalise turned off, but it doesn't seem to make any difference!
It's incredibly annoying! How do I stop it from doing this?
Flow to replace selected text - miscorrections4 votos 4 comentarios
I've run into a particularly annoying bug.
Let's say I have already:
One two three
And I select (highlight) three:
One two three
And then, with "three" still selected, I swipe the word "seven":
One two seven
The word is now correct but the word in the middle of the prediction panel is still "three". If I press space or type any other character it miscorrects "seven" back to "three":
One two three
This is particularly noticeable in Chrome. When I tap the URL bar while already on a page, whatever the current URL is will be pre-selected for me. So let's say I want to search for "happy cats". If I swipe "happy", I get "happy" but the middle suggestion is "I". So if I swipe or type "cats" next, it becomes: "I cats". In the past week I have run into this SO many times as it hijacks my attempts to Google in Chrome.

Estonian keyboard layout0 votos 1 comentario
Would it be possible to change Estonian QWERTY layout and put the letter "ö" under a separate key? It's rather crucial while writing in Estonian to use the letter separately from the letter "o" under what it currently resides.
With best regards.
FR: Fix double space everywhere (after user mistake)0 votos 0 comentarios
I'd like SwiftKey to fix double spaces everywhere.
I often make those kind of mistakes and I like when it fixes some of the spacing, but sometimes I edit a word before punctuation and make an extra space by mistake - that's what I need fixed.
And generally, when it detects double space where one shouldn't be, it should fix it.
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout7 votos 15 comentarios
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
Gesture input2 votos 1 comentario
In the gesture input section there are only two options: flow and gestures. I don't want to use any of them since they cause me some problems while I'm typing on my Xperia c4 device. Please add "None" option for those like me. By the way, thank you for developing such fantastic app.

Using SwiftKey with a Pixel C physical keyboard0 votos 1 comentario
I've used SwiftKey (and SwiftKey Neural) for a few years on several devices. Recently I got hold of a Pixel C and the accompanying physical keyboard, both of which are great.
However, I've noticed that the "..." button on the keyboard (which brings up symbols etc has no effect when the default keyboard is SwiftKey. That is with GBoard, touching "..." gives me access to all the extra keys and symbols. With Swiftkey it just acts as a Right-Alt key.
Is there a stetting anywhere in SwiftKey?
Is it something you're aware of and are working on?
Is it something you're aware of but can do nothing about due to Google having something locked down?
Any advice would be awesome, thanks. I have the beginnings of an idea in the back of my head to use IFTTT to switch to GBoard when the device sees the physical board, and back to SwiftKey when not...

Hindi predictions on English keyboard, is devnagri necessary?0 votos 2 comentarios
So, recently my SwiftKey keyboard was updated. There is a devnagri script keyboard option as well as the QWERTY English that I usually use. I use a lot of Hinglish in my messages, sure, but I'm not so happy when the English keyboard simply changes the words into devnagri. If I need to I can simply shift over using the spacebar to the devnagri script keyboard. But for the script to hijack my English posts is incongruous, inconvenient, and honestly, frustrating, especially because perfectly acceptable English words are transcribed unnecessarily and SwiftKey becomes not so swift anymore. That's not fun when I have to write emails or text messages in a professional capacity.
What can I do to make this not happen anymore? Are there settings to switch the transcriptions off? Is that possible?
[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji3 votos 2 comentarios
Hey I had an idea for your keyboard.
A custom emoji tab where we can add a select number of our favorite emoji for quick selection. SwiftKey is the top of the crop and this feature would enhance our typing capabilities even more. Thanks!
New poster. I hope this is in the correct place. Mods please advise if necessary :)
Keyboard Disappearing Except for Predictions0 votos 1 comentario
- LG V20
- Android 7.0 (Nougat)
- Swiftkey 126.96.36.199
Twice in the past day or so, Swiftkey has suddenly minimized to just the predictions, the keyboard presumably off the bottom of the screen.
One time, I reset the phone, and that restored it. I wouldn't be here posting, but just a few minutes ago it happened again. This time I disabled and re-enabled Swiftkey and that fixed it...but if this keeps happening, I obviously will not find it worth having to do that each time.
I don't know how to reproduce this, per se. When it happens, it is that way in all apps. Both times it was initially in the AT&T default texting app, but that's probably coincidence, because it's what I use most.
There's Unused Space in the Space1 voto 1 comentario
The space key takes up the space of ➍ keys but has zero functions except, ugh, space and the language switch button which doesn't seem necessary nowadays when the keyboard works in English just fine (with predictions and all) even with a foreign language keyboard always on.
It's space not very well used, is it not? My proposal is that it would get a new look and new functionality: In lieu of one, we would get four buttons which all still do work as the space button but each of them would get their unique secondary functions. One's function — tongue switch. There rest is up to you. ✌
Feature Requests - User viewable dictionary18 votos 6 comentarios
I use SwiftKey for years now and I've got rid of most of the weird suggestions now, but it took extremely long and I had to remove lots of words every day for many years. And still I sometimes get suggestions like
"gaucho Hagan Hitchens Cecil Barco barstool Megan yap naval brouhaha..."
that nobody needs. And that after removing thousands of words from the dictionary.
I know that the dictionary must be somewhere in SwiftKey's app data, since it has to be saved offline somewhere. But normal users can't see/edit some binary file in a protected folder, so my suggestion is:
Please make the list of words that are currently in the dictionary available to edit in some form, maybe as a text file (although I doubt it could be opened with the RAM of a phone), maybe as a list with checkboxes to delete many entries at once, maybe in another form.

After the last update the auto spacing after predicting a word has gone. It has just destroyed all the productivity that SwiftKey had been giving to me.
No, this is not a feature for Android beta version. After the last update, this becomes a bug for me and many others that are complaining about it.
Possible bug report re onscreen keyboard with Bluetooth keyboard1 voto 8 comentariosHiI have a problem with Switfkey. I've been using it for years and on my tablet I use a Bluetooth external physical keyboard. Switfkey used to detect this keyboard whenever it was connected and only showed the Predicted Text line at the bottom of the screen, which was exactly what I wanted. Last week for some reason it stopped hiding the onscreen keyboard even when the Bluetooth keyboard is connected. The SwiftKey keyboard has also stayed on top of the home screen a few times, and pressing the back key doesn't make it disappear. Is this a known bug? The details of my set up are as follows:Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7Android version: 6.0.1Swiftkey version: 188.8.131.52External keyboard: Type-S keyboard caseAny help to fix this would be greatly appreciated as this makes Switfkey almost unusable in my experience.Many thanksAngelo
[Duplicate] Auto spacing when swiping has disappeared2 votos 1 comentario
Usually when I swipe on the keyboard, after I complete a word, on keyboard release, SwiftKey inserts the predicted word followed by a space.
But now it doesn't behave that way anymore: after I swiped the cursor stays attached to the predicted word and a space is inserted only after I touch the keyboard again.
How can I go back to the previous mode?
[Feature request] Extra Shortcut Clips features5 votos 3 comentarios
Currently I use Smart Keyboard, just because of the AutoText feature it has (= shortcut clips).
I would really like to use SwiftKey instead. And the addition of the clips is bringing it a step closer.
I have 3 feature requests:
1) Import / export
I would love the ability to be able to import (and export) the shortcuts / clips.
I want to use loads and would not like having to enter them manually one-by-one. So some import from file ability would be great. Maybe in json format or whatever.
Not being able to import is currently still a deal-breaker for me.
2) Rich text snippets
I would also like the ability to create rich text snippets. For instance to be able to use as email signatures and such.
You can copy rich text in Android and past it, where it keeps the formatting. So this should be possible I expect.
It would be awesome if we could create these in html format, which would get pasted as rich text when selected.
3) Add optional title/description field
When having long clips, the first few words will be displayed in the bar. Like: "It's a very long..."
This can be very undescriptive, especially when having multiple clips with the same starting words.
It would be nice to have an extra title/description field that would displayed in the bar instead. That field could get a character limit of - say - 20 character, so it will always get displayed in full (not truncated).
