Bring back the web search tool ASAP Respondida4 votos 4 comentariosThere's no reason for user experience to remove the web search tool. It was always an elective option, but now we're robbed of that choice. I can see no good reason for this decision, other than greed. Please rethink it. You've unnecessarily disappointed and baffled a lot of your users.

Change voice to text program?4 votos 4 comentariosThis has been asked but seems to lost to age without any response from SwiftKey. I want to change the program used for voice to text. A lot of other people want the same thing. How do we change it?
Space below spacebar is too large since a couple of updates ago4 votos 7 comentarios
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?
[Reported] SwiftKey Keyboard and Pixel 4 swipe to erase issues Planeada4 votos 14 comentarios
I love SwiftKey and I always disable Flow because I use the swipe right to left gesture to erase the last word, but on the Pixel 4 it's horribly broken and doesn't erase 90% of the time. Extremely frustrating.
Please fix it.
Symbols automatically enter a space?4 votos 2 comentariosEvery time I try to enter symbols after using Flow to create a word, the symbol always automatically puts a space in between it and the word I entered before it with the Flow. For example, when I make typo errors, I like to retext the word (correctly spelled) and put an asterisk directly after it. For example, I try to say "Family*" but when I enter the word "Family" using Flow, and I type an asterisk, it automatically puts a space between the two entrees and types "Family *". This happens to EVERY symbol (asterisks, colons, semi-colons, and more) except quotation marks ("). No matter how I enter it, it will add in a space. It doesn't matter if I long press a letter to enter the symbol or switch to the symbol keyboard to manually enter it - it will always enter a space, and then the symbol. This always only happens after I enter a word with the Flow system (swiping to letters to create a word). It's an extremely tedious and messy mechanic, as I tend to enter many symbols, and yet the keyboard automatically messes up the sentence with an extra space. The only symbol this tends to be useful for is dashes (-) as many times it can be nice to have spaces around the dashes in between words. Thanks for any feedback or any fix!
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...).

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.

Can't use Swiftkey in Samsung DeX on Tab S44 votos 4 comentarios
I have a Samsung Tab S4 and I really like the DeX mode with the official Samsung Tab S4 keyboard cover, but there's one major drawback. It seems there's nothing I can do to enable SwiftKey when in DeX mode.
As such, I have to rely on the useless Samsung keyboard which doesn't even add a capital letter at the start of sentences.
SwiftKey works fine when using the Samsung Tab S4 keyboard cover when not in DeX model.
How do I switch on SwiftKey in DeX mode?

Text shortcuts4 votos 3 comentarios
I am a busy man, efficiency is key, but I've been using the default android keyboard since time immemorial. Stubborn to make its lackluster autocorrect system work for me. Swiftkey blows that out of the water BUT there's something seemingly easy to add but essential about the keyboard that's missing from Swiftkey and had saved me a ton of time in the Samsung keyboard. You guessed it, text shortcuts. They can help me write three letters that get replaced with a paragraph of text I'd pre-written and sent a thousand times. These are non negotiable to continue using your otherwise wonderful app and I'd be more than pleased to use it in the future should that feature be added
Thank you for your time

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 22.214.171.124(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 126.96.36.199
- 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.
