Android 10: Swiftkey not available to my work profile?4 votos 1 comentario
I use a work profile on my Pixel 2XL so I can access my work email (duh!), and until I upgraded to Android 10 I had my SwiftKey keyboard in both my personal and work profiles. But now that I've upgraded I've lost SwiftKey from my work profile. Argh! Can I get it back? It's a real pain to have different keyboards in each profile!
I do not want ok to be capitalized to OK4 votos 1 comentario
I am always removing "OK" from the prediction and it will just reappear all the time. It says "OK" successfully removed from learned words but it will still be there as the auto correct so if I do no click on the ok on the left it changes it to OK. It happened multiple times just writing this.

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS AND OVERVIEW IT AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?4 votos 0 comentarios

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS?
I want to create a backup file from all the created clipboard shortcuts.
AND OVERVIEW IT?
in my phone i can't organise the shortcuts, i can only create a lot and scroll through the created shortcuts and edit them when i can find them. But after making hundreds of shortcuts it is frustrating to lose an overview and not be able to organise them all on Alphabetical order and in a spreadsheet file or anything exportable to a cloud - document - excel conversion so i can keep the shortcuts and export the file to another device and use them all again on that device.
This could be handy for educational tool on schools and universities with standard shortcuts.
Also it would be great if the overview is possible in a spreadsheet so people can really learn the shortcuts and overview them, edit the ones they want to edit and restore the file to the device or devices.
AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?
Talking about a dowloadable file is the first thing we need to do if we think about shortcuts on keyboards.
Swiftkey would be the best app if it allows users to create a file and make them able to edit these shortcuts personal in an editor online or on a spreadsheet cloud environment.

Compact resize button is bothering4 votos 3 comentarios
Hi! I find the New square "full keyboard" button when in compact Mode bothering. I only use compact because I love to use my phone with one hand and with the button I keep making the keyboard complete all the time. Could you Make it optional in order to remove it? Thanks
Auto incognito switching and typing4 votos 0 comentarios
It's awesome to know that SwiftKey can switch to Incognito mode automatically in Chrome/Firefox incognito tabs. But there's an issue.
The keyboard theme/UI for the incognito mode, does not show Accented characters. This causes serious problems while typing or want to type fast.
Solution : 1. Implement the feature, to show all Accented characters, custom theme in incognito mode (just don't track the typing, and that's all).
2. Give option to turn off Auto incognito switching.

Space bar size.4 votos 2 comentarios
I've got an issue. The discs bar is too small. And I keep. Pressing the. Period instead of the space. Bar. It's really annoying. And makes people. On. The other. End annoyed. Otherwise I have to slowly type and edit as I go, making this not very swift.
Quick access to plain text emoticons4 votos 1 comentario
don't know if this has already been asked, cannot find it in the forum search. The thing is I'm an old guy, I've started chatting when we still had the BBSs and Internet was almost unknown. Because of that I hate all those damn emojis, all that bitmap wasting just to show stupid faces, and silly objects, and flags and who knows what other weird stuff. So, is there a way to quick access the text-only emoticons, ie, those you can type by just using brackets, two colon and the like :-) :-/ :-(
Previous versions, I could keep the Enter key pressed and at least a top row with a clock icon appeared, and from there I could see my last typed emoticons. Now, text emoticons are not under the clock anymore and the text emoticons tab :-) is just the last one, and it's very impractical to access it this way. Can the order of those tabs be changed? Could you bring the text emoticons back to the history tab?
Thanks in advance for the help.

German layout - long press4 votos 2 comentarios
I just started to use Swiftkey, and I love it, but the fact how the letters ß, ä, ö, and ü are handled when typing in German are a complete deal-breaker for me. It's such a simple thing, and I honestly don't understand why it's not implemented in a smart way.
In order to type an 'ä', you have to long press the letter 'a', then the '@' appears beneath your finger, and you have to move to the letter 'ä'. In German, the letter 'ä' is just a normal character, and it is used a lot more often than the letter '@', so it should be the other way round. After the long press, the 'ä' should automatically appear beneath your finger, so you just have to long press it, without the extra move.
The same thing applies to ß (after long pressing the 's', the ß should be standard, instead of the '#'), for o (where the 9 is standard instead of ö), and the 'ü' as well.
Gboard, and any other keyboard (to my knowledge) implement it in that way. So you just have to long press the u, in order to get a ü, and so on. It's fine if you have to move your finger for characters that you don't need that often, but ä, ü, ö and ß should be the first choice when long pressing.
Smarter capitalization of "I"4 votos 0 comentarios
This has been asked for about a year ago, but I'll try again... I've enabled two languages in the SwiftKey (beta) app. My native tongue and English. Switching between the two is seamless, which I enjoy, but the app keeps capitalizing my I's in my mother tongue as well (where "i" is a standalone word that shouldn't be capitalized mid-sentence). It would be great if the app could for example look at the word before "i" and then suggest capitalizing only if the word is English.
For now I have to manually correct it, which takes a lot of time in the long run.
Keyboard covers input field - impossible to write, predictions not working4 votos 4 comentarios
I'm having a big issue with SwiftKey on my HTC ONE M7 on Android 5.
The keyboard covers the input field in almost any messenger (WA, GG, TG,...) and makes it impossible to write.
The predictions are also not click-able. When I tap on one of the predictions, the keyboard disappears, as if I would tap on the Messengers window.
I have some Screenshots showing the bug but this forum doesn't seem to have an option to attach images. How can I post an image?
With this serious bug, SwiftKey is totally useless for me.
I can't see the text I'm writing.
I can't tap on the predictions.
The built-in HTC Sense Keyboard works just fine without this issue, so it has to be SwiftKey that's causing the bug.
Please resolve this issue as soon as possible. I can't live without SwiftKey!
Manual language swap4 votos 2 comentarios
Hi, is it possible to change languages manually? When I have two or more languages together (i have Czech, English and French) and use flow, the resulting words of the flow gesture tend to be wrong often (a lot). Even if i use only Czech and English which is necessary in my every day life it is not working well. I would appreciate manual language switching as was possible in the past. Also separate personal dictionaries would be implied.(added words)
[FEATURE REQUEST] Make the space bar bigger!!4 votos 5 comentarios
I see so many requests to make the spacebar bigger to eliminate the problem with accidentally hitting the period but yet no response or fix from Swiftkey, so I thought I would add on a post. I really want to love Swiftkey and keep switching back to it every couple of weeks but then that darn period problem annoys me so much that I end up quickly switching to another keyboard. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Can barely type anymore.4 votos 10 comentarios
When I'm typing on another forum the keys have stopped working properly and even when I tap the prediction words it puts in other things. Often pressing spacebar pus in letters like T randomly. Just now trying to type T with a period after wouldn't let me.
It's seems most problematic on that site.
Bluetooth External Keyboard - Multiple languages4 votos 7 comentarios
As a language student, I have a need to type in multiple languages (five, to be exact), though I'm having trouble with my external Bluetooth keyboard. Though I can change the prediction language to Russian or Korean, I can't actually type the characters (remains typing with a US layout when I'd really like to be typing in the language I've changed to).

language switch by swiping spacebar is infuriating4 votos 1 comentario
guys this setting is infuriating as I need fast long hold keys but not at the expense of my language on the keyboard constantly changing when I press space bar.
this is a keyboard destroying issue for me. I type fast and cannot have dual language functionality work properly when keyboard change occurs constantly simply by pressing spacebar.
it means I'm spending a big chunk of my time fighting to turn Japanese language off or typing English words with a Japanese keyboard slowly for my example.
Please please change the behavior of language changing as it's too annoying in its current form for me. if it isn't adjusted I have to change to another keyboard that doesn't have this annoying gesture built into the space bar.
New quick paste feature in SwiftKey Beta 184.108.40.206 votos 1 comentario
Just tried it and you have to enable the clipboard feature, and then the copied text shows up as a prediction so if you're in a text field that has prediction disabled (like say... a password entry) it doesn't work. Why can't you implement a simple paste button that will paste whatever was copied? I would mainly use this feature to paste copied passwords from LastPass in apps/websites where getting the paste dialog to show up is either a pain or impossible. I do NOT want a list of my last used passwords showing up on my screen, which is why I disable the clipboard feature to begin with!
As an example, Fleksy has a clipboard feature that lets you swipe from the number row to a row of keys with three functions: Copy, Cut, Paste. No copied text ever shows up on the screen and it will paste the text into any text entry available. SwiftKey could easily have similar functionality by, for example, adding a paste button into the comma key long press that activates voice entry or something similar.
The German letter Eszett needs its own dedicated key4 votos 2 comentarios
It's great that the QWERTZ (extended) layout has dedicated keys for Ä,Ö, and Ü, but there should definitely be a "ß" key (Eszett) as well. It's a common letter, and it's really cumbersome that you can only type it by longpressing the letter "S". There's enough space to add "ß" as well.
