Since a few updates ago, there is now additional empty space below the spacebar and the last row of keys. Accidentally touching that space closes the keyboard while typing which is very time consuming because I have to keep manually opening the keyboard. I have tried re-sizing the keyboard but it won't allow me to extend into that empty space at the bottom. Please see two attached screenshots. Can you please fix this or allow us to eliminate that space?

Login and Sync Issues4 votos 0 comentarios
I have seen several Forum entries and tens of 1 star reviews about this, so just to mention: The Backup and Sync is not working. It'd be nice if you'd, you now, react to any of the posts.
Another issue is the Web Login for both the forum and the SwiftKey Data page. I don't know if this is a recent development, but Chrome (both mobile and Desktop), and I'm pretty sure Firefox too, are blocking third party cookies. This seems to make it impossible to login with both Google or Microsoft (The Google button is grayed out and other login attempts result in an error that cookies are disabled). Virtually all other Websites I use seem to login with Google just fine, third party cookies enabled or not. For people not very tech experienced it will be impossible to login (maybe that's why I don't see hundreds of posts about the sync issue...).

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.

Change default character when I press and hold down a letter No planeada4 votos 5 comentarios
So my problem is I'm using this keyboard with a language has special letters (á, é...). When I tap on a letter and keep my finger on it a little window will pop up above that letter with suggested characters. For example, if I hold down letter A it witt suggest these 2 characters : '@' and 'á'. The problem is I basivally want to use letter 'á' 98% of the time but the default first suggestion is the @ so it will take me another move with my finget zo reach the 'á' character. And this is super frustrating. If there is any option to switch these characters as default first suggestion it will be a big help.
Revert to letters after using the spacebar after punctuation.4 votos 0 comentarios
I just switch from iOS SwiftKey to Android Switfkey and the keyboard is a bit different. Its smaller, which is okay... But the punctuation is different. On iOS when I would type "oh my gosh!" for example, the keyboard would revert back to the letters after I typed the "!" and pressed the spacebar. I can't find an option for this. Is there one? If not, PLEASE fix this!
Another thing is the keys are in different places so I'm finding it hard to adapt. Adding a layout option for the keyboards would help. The bottom row of symbols has 8 symbols instead of the 5 I was used to. I am sure I will adjust, but it would be a nice feature for users who are switching keyboards.

How to disable Incognito mode Respondida4 votos 2 comentarios
Is there a way to completely disable the incognito mode of SwiftKey? It is extremely annoying and does not even know how to do voice to text and the layout and everything is drastically different. I end up having to get out of the application open up something like Microsoft Word, use SwiftKey to type what I wanr then do cut it and then paste it back into the original document because the incognito mode doesn't work very well.
Please tell me how to disable Incognito mode completely.
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.
Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) Respondida4 votos 11 comentarios
I'd hoped this issue would have been fixed by now but it appears that it's not a very popular problem, and so I've decided to take it upon myself to provide the correct information to get it looked at. I have found a few other forum posts with the exact same issue, so I hope this helps you all too.
Here is the required information;
- Huawei P20 Pro - EE network, UK
- Android 8.1.0: Huawei's EMUI build, version CLT-L09 184.108.40.206(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 220.127.116.11
- Steps to reproduce:
- When typing in the standard layout QWERTY keboard, if pressing the "123" key in the very bottom-left of the keyboard, immediately and swiftly followed by punctuation such as a question mark (on the symbol/number layout that appears), the keyboard acts as though the "enter" key in the very bottom-right of the symbol keyboard is pressed before the punctuation you selected, despite not pressing it at all. This means that a new line begins before your punctuation, and it shouldn't. For example, if attempting to quickly type the word "What?" on the keyboard, you will get this instead:
- I have added a link below to a screen-recording of the issue. In the video, you will see the "?" and the "enter" keys both light up as though both are being pressed, however only the "?" is actually being pressed. What you should see is "What?", there should not be a new line added before the "?". This happens with other punctuation also, but as the "?" is the most frequently used, I thought I'd go with that for the video.
- Link: https://vimeo.com/312434866
Importantly: This error does NOT happen if you restore the Swiftkey application to its original version via the Google Playstore. The issue only begins when updating the application, and so the bug must have inadvertently been included recently. I can't remember when the issue started, but it has been a few months and a handful of updates, and the issue still remains.
I hope this information is sufficient to locate and fix this bug, it's a real nut-ache for me as it happens 95% of the time I use punctuation after a word.

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.
Japanese Keitai input4 votos 2 comentarios
Please add the feature to turn off the old obsolete Keitai multiple tap input for Japanese and use Flick ONLY. Gboard allows you to do this. It is such a pain whenever you want to enter hiragana twice you have to wait and it ruins the flow. I've made so many mistakes because of this so I'm forced to use Gboard. But I'd really like it for SwiftKey to add this and it should be a really easy thing to implement
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.
