love the app - understand that it defers to Google for voice to text which is fine but do any of the keyboards have the microphone button larger? I downloaded this app to have a larger keyboard but now it is harder to get to the microphone - may have to uninstall it if there is no fix

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 22.214.171.124. 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?
Japanese keyboard nearly unusable: anyone else?7 votos 8 comentarios
I have English, Chinese, Japanese and German enabled. I find the keyboard in general rather laggy for me, but nothing unbearable. The exception is Japanese, which I am virtually unable to use, both because of extreme lag and because the keyboard can't seem to handle simple phrases or words and will stop showing suggestions.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it an issue with the Japanese keyboard itself, or is it because SwiftKey is becoming overwhelmed by having to make predictions in four languages simultaneously? If it is the latter, would it be possible to switch off this function and switch languages manually? I understand that this is a vital function for many people, but I personally don't need to type in all four languages at once.
Thanks very much! :)

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.
Arabic layout is messed up for longpress characters7 votos 30 comentarios
I started using SwiftKey this past month after testing it out on my new phone and I think I'm sticking with it. But one thing I loathe about it is how all the characters on the Arabic keyboard are scattered around with no logical connection between them, I'm not talking about the main letters but the ones you get when you long press a letter.
Let me give you an example, in both Google's GBoard and Apple's keyboard and probably every keyboard out there when you long-press on the letter Alif (ا), the equivalent of A, you'd get all the variations أإآء... But SwiftKey kind of have them scattered around like on a physical keyboard which is not very thoughtful. This leaves me either guessing or using an ugly theme with all the letters shown.
This problem is present on both the main beta releases of the keyboard on iOS and Android.
White font on white background after the latest Swiftkey update when typing horizontally (from yesterday)6 votos 7 comentarios
Hello Swiftkey Support,
I've been facing with a very annoying issue since the latest Swiftkey update from yesterday.
Suddenly and after this update, I'm not able to type anything on my messengers apps (WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Viber) when having my phone horizontally because Swiftkey changes the font into white color on white background, so basically I can't see what I'm typing.
Before this update, Swiftkey was working absolutely normally, I am absolutely sure because I've been always typing on my phone via horizontally position and the font was in black color and on white background.
This is happening only in case of horizontally typing. When I move my phone to vertical position, I can see white font on dark background, like it's supposed to be in normal way.
But when I move my phone with the same text again into horizontally position, Swiftkey changes by itself the font into white and on white background, so I can't see anything.
Could you please fix this because it's really annoying ?
I've been using Android 10 on my phone.
I've restarted my phone also and it didn't fix the Swiftkey issue. When I changed my keyboard to Gboard, everything is working normally, even in horizontally position.
Thank you very much.

Installing on a new phone6 votos 4 comentarios
On my old phone I used to have swiftkey and really enjoyed it. My phone died so I got a new one and today I installed swiftkey on it and logged in to the program. One thing I immediately noticed (and was disappointed with) was on my new phone is that all my suggestive words seem to be gone. What I mean is for work I send a lot of similar texts and it got to the point my phone would pretty much suggest the next word I intended to use because I had written that exact sentence so many times. I always saw the app boasting about how many words it had suggested and key strokes it had saved me. Since you have a profile you log into for the program I was hoping it was stored online or something to where these suggestive words would somehow "download" onto the new phone but so far it does not look like. Was there a file or something that was saved locally on the old phone i May be able to move over?

Sync Clipboard Respondida6 votos 8 comentarios
I see there other posts on these but the *status is closed without any conclusion.*
How important does SwiftKey think is a good idea to sync Clipboard? This often consists of my usernames or passport number, greeting messages to my clients. And after every phone reset or phone device upgrade, I have to redo everything again. I need to take the trouble of copying every clipboard pinned texts to Evernote and then put it in SwiftKey. We are heading into 2020.
Auto incognito switching and typing (Accented characters)6 votos 1 comentario
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.
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.
3. Give option to turn off incognito in incognito tab (may be vulnerable).

Remove annoying toolbar (+) icon6 votos 5 comentarios
A couple of versions ago, SwiftKey introduced a new feature called 'toolbar' for easy access to all kinds of features.
Great, though I'm never ever using it.
In fact, I don't want the extra bar to take up screen space because I don't use it anyway.
While typing though, I find myself pressing the +button in the top left corner every minute or so.
This makes me have to close the bar again with the x button, in order to get rid of the useless toolbar.
Introducing new functionality is great, however, please also give us the option to disable this functionality, if we never use it anyway.
I've been using SwiftKey for ages and this has been the only complaint I've had so far.

Would be really nice if these could be made default or as an add on in the SwiftKey keyboard

Punctuation and spaces6 votos 3 comentarios
This is driving me crazy. I get spaces before, but not after, semicolons, colons, etc. But I get spaces after opening parenthesis and brackets. And spaces where there should be nine around apostrophes and quotation marks.
Consider these un-corrected lines:
Well go then ;don't come back.
Trey 'a coat
--(should have been "Trey's coat". Even tap-typing it didn't work the first time).
Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I love SwiftKey, but this is enough to drive me away.
How to disable emoji predictions6 votos 5 comentarios
When I switch to the emoji in the last version, the page shown is a crystal ball (apparently it is the beta predictions), instead of the "recent" (with the clock page). Does anyone knows how to change that ?

They only reason why I don't like swift key compared to gboard is due to lack of quick access to voice input. Can you please bring voice input key top right as it's currently placed in the gboard. To be honest Windows phone keyboard was so much better.

Stop suggesting capital "i" when I'm typing in Swedish (where lowercase "i" is a common word)6 votos 2 comentarios
I have Swedish and English activated, because I tend to use both languages. But whenever I'm typing a sentence in Swedish and hitting the letter "i", Swiftkey changes that to "I" (capital i) instead, even though my intention was to write "i" (which is a really, really common word in Swedish, meaning "in"). I've tried multiple times to tell swiftkey not to suggest "I" at all, but it doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure the reason is that "I" is an English word, which for some reason takes precedence over the Swedish (equally common) word "i". Please, please, could you develop the software such that the English suggestion does not automatically takes precendence in such "ties", but let it be based on the language the previous word belonged to instead? That would help a lot!

Swedish Language/layout is forced to type capital "i" every time.6 votos 3 comentarios
When you're typing away with the Swedish language and layout, you're forced to go back and correct all the "i''s. Swiftkey autocorrects every single "i" to a "Capital I".
We never have or ever will use capital "i" mid sentences.
