WhatsApp Text Entry Issues2 votos 3 comentarios
Since the beginning of February '18, I have experienced an issue when using SwiftKey with WhatsApp. When I first open the App I cannot enter text using the SwiftKey keyboard. Any attempt to do so, even using the 'autofill' suggestions fails. If I close the App and then try again it will often work, but only for that one occasion. I have tried reinstalling both SwiftKey and WhatsApp with no effect. If I revert to the HTC keyboard (I have an HTC One M7) it is fine. I notice that there was an issue like this reported back in 2017 but no recent forum entries. It would be good to hear of a fix as I miss my SwiftKey App.
How to add more stickers0 votos 3 comentarios
Hello, I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to add more sticker packs than are there by default. I have a LGV30 and my husband the V20 and he has a completely different set of stickers available. I would like to have those as well. Do different phones have different stickers? Seems odd... Thanks in advance.
Scaling issues with S9+ on WQHD+ resolution (too big)5 votos 3 comentarios
Using the latest version of Swiftkey and Swiftkey Beta cause scaling issues on the keyboard. Using the Galaxy S9+ with resolution set to WQHD+. Have to set keyboard to "Smallest" currently. Tried removing apps, reinstalling and clearing data, no changes.
Issue was not present on my S8+.
R rated search keyword results for Gifs9 votos 3 comentarios
For all of us concerned adults, I noticed the latest update now blocks or significantly limits R rated search keyword results. Wouldn't the implementation of a user selectable filter make more sens? It's a deal breaker for me if I can no longer message my friends with R rated gifs.
Missing emoji's from one device to another0 votos 3 comentarios
I have a Samsung galaxy S7 Edge with SwiftKey in it and love it since my S5. Now I have an S9+, and I noticed that the religious emoji's, a cross, a gold star of David and a golden menorah, the crest moon and a few other religious emoji's are no longer in it the SwiftKey app on my new S9+, what is going on? I don't believe that it's the phone itself but the emoji's in the SwiftKey application itself, why are they removed, I find it upsetting since two of the missing emoji's I love and used quite a bit in my posting on Facebook! Can I get them back, installed on my SwiftKey application in my S9+?
All my apps to SwiftKey are up to date! What's the problem?

The update has the new + bar with gifs and stickers and it makes it harder to get to the clipboard which is what's important to me. Is there a way to disable all that junk and neaten it up like it was?

I could use Swiftkey with my S8+, but with my new S9+ and Oreo it will not allow Gboard or Swiftkey keyboards.
My work requires a device policy :-(.
Tamaño de las letras y símbolos del teclado1 voto 3 comentarios
Soy una persona de la tercera edad y el tamaño de las letras y símbolos que aparecen en los teclados son muy pequeñas.
Mi pregunta es:
Como puedo aumentar el tamaño de las letras y símbolos del teclado?
Muchas gracias y si bendiciones. Ismael.
Me gusta pero...0 votos 3 comentarios
Me gusta mucho la app, el único pero que tengo en general es que en la opción para hacer el teclado más pequeño, en la mayoría de los temas las letras son muy pálidas y de caligrafía muy delgada.
Export/import clipboard items1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm not talking about backing up Clipboard or synching between devices. I have the full release SwiftKey on my Android and also participate in the SwiftKey Beta. I have quite a few shortcuts in the full release version and am trying to find a way to import them into the Beta version. As it stands now it's hard to stick to the Beta and test it out since none of my Clipboard items are there and I end up going back to full release for usability.

[Feature Request] Better singular language prediction support when using multiple languages0 votos 3 comentarios
Please could you add a quick way to select predictions for just one language? I type in several languages on the same keyboard layout and at the moment SwiftKey mixes up the predictions. I only want one language predictions at a time...
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.

Is there any way to change the voice to text engine in Android? I would prefer to use Cortana, since I find Cortana's accuracy very good, but there does not seem to be a way to do it.

Can't make a line break in Allo1 voto 3 comentarios
In Google's Allo messenger, Swiftkey is unable to make a line break. All other keyboards tested (Swipe, Gboard, Samsung) have been able to make a line break across multiple phones, but every phone using with Swiftkey is unable to. This was also a problem several months ago but fixed itself in an update, but now unfixed itself a couple months back. The line break/enter key just does nothing, except will register as a backspace if the previous character is a space, and only a space.
Line breaks work fine in all other apps using Swiftkey.

Please fix this issue.
Symbol layout9 votos 3 comentarios
Please add customization options for the symbol keyboard layout. The SwiftKey one is totally unintuitive - the normal symbol layout that's been in use for years didn't need reinventing, and it's one of the ways the standard Google keyboard is clearly superior for my use. The new layout completely trips up long-standing muscle memory for no discernable benefit.
Suggestion: classic emoticons tab editable0 votos 3 comentarios
In the emoji section (holding Enter), there's an extra tab with classic ascii emoticons, like :-)
I'd like to be able to edit this tab with my own written emoticons. Since its list of options is all made of simple ascii symbols, I don't really use it (writing is faster), but there's popular stuff like ಠ_ಠ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (and some I make up myself) that I tend to use often, and my solution has been to keep these in a text note on a separate app, to copy and paste…
Could you please make the items in the emoticons tab editable?
Thank you very much, and for your great app. o/
How to type accented characters without sliding key.0 votos 3 comentarios
How to type accented characters without sliding key, but just holding it?
For exmple: I need to type character ''ģ", but first I have to hold key "g" and slide to left. If i just hold this key, I will get this symbol "-".
In settings accented characters is of, because then holding a key (whitcever - "g", "e" etc) I get too many accented characters.
different languages have shared dictionary1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm experiencing Ukrainian and Russian have shared dictionary(I see that for both integrated and custom dictionaries).
Besides languages have almost the same characters set and most words are written in the same way there are also large list of words that differ in just one character.
So I'm unable to write smoothly rather have to check words again and again.
I'm wondering if this also happens for other languages (say Spanish and Portugal).
It seems there is no way to control such an approach.
Very frustrating and time-consuming
