I was wondering if there was any way to setup autocomplete hotkeys for use with swiftkey and a physical keyboard.

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 184.108.40.206
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: 220.127.116.11External 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).

Android Email App and SwiftKey0 votos 1 comentario
I'm experiencing problemas with the use of SwiftKey and Android Email App. When type an email using SwiftKey, and a notification arrives on the top of the screen, my SwiftKey keyboard moves millimeters up until the notification is dismissed.
Besides annoying, this problem leads to errors on typing.
Anyone knows how to solve it?
More than 1 keyword for a clipboard text, please.0 votos 1 comentario
the ability to add various keywords for a single clipboard text would be ace. The "➕" text could be input not only by writing "plus" but also "más" which is Spanish for the same word: Individuals who have dozens of clip texts can't remember the exact keywords. Further, it would be nice if you could assess special symbols, asterisks and so on, to enter clip text. That way you could enter the emoji "➕" by entering the normal "+" as well. ☺
«You could separate the keywords by using a comma or space.»
Keep up the great work, SwiftKey ninjas.
REQUEST: More intensive keyboard customization.2 votos 1 comentario
Currently, the only keyboards with swiping and a deep level of functional customization are lesser known and lacking when it comes to swiping accuracy/prediction/intelligence. Examples: Ultra Keyboard, ai.type, and Multiling O.
My request is for SwiftKey to be the first major keyboard to incorporate things like top and bottom row customization (creating and mapping keys) alongside accurate swiping.

[Duplicate] No auto space after Flowing2 votos 4 comentarios
For some reason, just in the last few days, my keyboard does not add a space after I Swype a word. It DOES add a space if I Swype another word. However, the only reason this is super annoying is when I'm on Facebook and typing a comment or updating my status, Facebook tries to tag a person with nearly every word I type. I see another thread where someone wants to remove the space, I need to add it!
turning off "auto capitalise" for German is not working0 votos 3 comentarios
I use SwiftKey in two languages: German and English (UK). Auto capitalisation is turned off, but nonetheless, many words in German are capitalised. This includes words such as articles, which definitely should not be upper case. Any idea why?
[Duplicate] Questions about the new flow2 votos 1 comentario
I am using Swiftkey 18.104.22.168 on a Samsung S7 running Android 7.0.
First, I would like to say that I think that moving the focus to corrections instead of predictions was a mistake. I miss predictions, but I have been using the new version and trying to adapt, despite not really liking it. I have some questions.
1. How do i capitalize the next word? I'm flowing and my last flow was correct, and now I wish to capitalize the next word (say, a proper noun). If I hit shift, it capitalizes the last word. If I just tap or flow, then it's not capitalized. Example: "Yesterday I visited the State House."
2. Hitting spacebar after a *correct* flow inserts two spaces. How do I stop this? Autocorrect is set to off.
3. Punctuation is slightly messed up as well. If I insert punctuation (: ; / - + etc) after a *correct* flow, it auto-adds a space in between. It makes using colon, semi-colon, etc very awkward. It's there a way to fix this? e.g. "To whom it may concern:"

Swiftkey Lags with Microsoft Outlook App1 voto 7 comentarios
with the microsoft outlook Android app
Swiftkey (happens with both the normal and beta versions) starts lagging horribly. i.e., you need to wait a really long time (a few seconds) for any key to appear on the screen. scrolling is slow and everything is slow. it feels like the phone has locked up. everything is back to normal once I kill outlook. It's fine with the stock samsung keyboard btw.
I'm running this on a samsung S7 with android 6.0.1. stock firmware supplied by my carrier. firmware version is g935Fxxu1cpl1 baseband version is g935fxxu1cpl2

SwiftKey has become a nightmare4 votos 18 comentarios
I've been using SwiftKey for years now, and it has become more and more painful, to the point that I'm a meme to my friends now due to the way I type if I don't read twice before sending.
First, it looks like SwiftKey went from correcting my typos to considering that my typos are the way words are supposed to be written. So it corrects the right words into wrong.
Second, the French corrector is pretty broken to begin with, there are even tenses it don't know. So I have to manually rewrite verbs, even if I had them right the first time, because SwiftKey mess with it.
Last of all, since I switched to a new A5 2016 recently, the keyboard sometimes erases one to two words while I'm typing, for no reason.
I also have the "SwiftKey closing while I'm typing" problem I saw elsewhere, happens on Textra and Facebook Messenger.
I use the last beta of the app, with swift off because it made the keyboard even more laggy and unpredictable.
I wanted to change app, but yours is the best in terms of customization and key placement.
As you could have guessed I'm French. Strangely enough (?) I had absolutely no issue typing this message. Is French the problem? Or the way your app learnt me? Both?

[Feature Request] Free resize for width2 votos 4 comentarios
I would like to request a free resize option for SwiftKey's width. There are enough height options to suit almost any taste, but the only available options for width are full, thumb and compact.
This would be most useful in undocked mode on phablets in landscape mode and tablets. Still I think the option would be good in docked mode as well. Some phablets are sized such that "full" width is uncomfortable for one finger typing, but "compact" is cramped. It would also help on Galaxy S7 Edge portrait mode, where "full" size extends keys into the curved "edge screen" area, where it's too easy to hit them accidentally.
I think a good way to implement this would be a 4th option under layout, "custom". Selecting it would bring up draggable resize bars around the keyboard and an accept button.
[Feature Request] Turn off all gestures2 votos 2 comentarios
I would like to see the option to turn off all "gestures" from SwiftKey
Lütfen Android SwiftKey için hareket girişi kısmına "Hiçbiri" seçeneğini getirin. Çünkü Flow ya da hareketler ikisini de kullanmak istemeyenler için bu seçenek çok faydalı olacaktır. Ve hareketler seçeneğini seçtiğimiz zaman hızlı yazarken maalesef yazdığımız kelimeyi ister istemez siliyor. Buna bir çözüm bulabilmek açısından hiçbiri seçeneği harika olacaktır.
[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian6 votos 11 comentarios
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.
