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

Period/Dot auto space/unspace2 votos 3 comentarios
There's a feature that automatically removes the space I inserted and adds a space in front when I use the dot.
I prefer to do it manually and I'm used to it since I like making faces with it like for example ".-."
Now I can't write what I quoted easily because of this useless automatic spacing feature. The results without backspacing everything would be ". -." or in the end of a a sentence "What. -." when what was manually written and what I wanted to write was this: "What .-."
I understand that some people like this feature but I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates it. So what I ask for, is that you add an option to enable or disable this automatic space/unspace feature since I'm forced to having it enabled.
I like this keyboard, it's great and this was the only flaw I found so please consider the solution I gave you.

More Japanese keyboard types please.0 votos 3 comentarios
More types need to be added to Japanese keyboard layouts.
The 12-key 'flick' and the Godan keyboard that Google uses.
There is also my personal favorite for those learning Japanese which is the Gojuuon keyboard (picture attached).
Other phones have this is it was the type of keyboard I used most often with IQQI before switching to Swiftkey.
I have been really pleased with the effort you put into to your boards to make them easy on the eyes as well as having many features.
I hope that you continue that by also adding optional layout types, not only for Japanese but for other boards like English and Esperanto, which could have better functionality as they are missing some keys.
Custom keyboard predictive text invisible and inaccurate.0 votos 3 comentarios
I'm on a Google Pixel and have a custom English/Esperanto keyboard and romaji Japanese keyboard.
The predictive text of the en/eo boards do not show up, but you can tap the area where it would be like it's there and it will select stuff. It shows up if I switch it to the Japanese board so I know it works, sorta.
When I switch to the Japanese board to see the predictive text, it's all in English which doesn't seem right.
Are these problems going to be looked at or have they been seen and plan to be solved soon?
Please add Sardinian to SwiftKey2 votos 3 comentarios
Please add the Sardinian language to SwiftKey. It's a language spoken by more than 1.7 million people, with a great history and literature. We Sardinians would love to have it on our phones!
Why two Shift keys in extended layout?0 votos 3 comentarios
I'm a great fan of moving cursor left and right within the texts. That's where the left and right arrow keys come in handy. Gboard did a great job adding the option to slide within the words using space key.
On SwiftKey keyboard, you get an option to enable Extended Layout which adds the left and right keys beside the spacebar. But it also brings another trouble. It puts a giant shift key ⬆️ on right side when there is already one on left.

SwiftKey resetting0 votos 3 comentarios
Every so often, maybe every few days, my swiftkey resets itself. Whenever this happens it tells me I need to finish installing swift key and it says I haven't completed the 3rd stage of your installation process. I follow the set up wizard every time, sign into my swift key account and personalise my keyboard but it still resets a couple of days later. It's getting kind of tedious constantly putting in my preferences again and because it forgets all of my typing history my predictions aren't very accurate a lot.
I have a HTC 10 and it works off android.

Will there be support for "live messages"?1 voto 3 comentarios

Why do my Emoji look different after reinstalling swiftkey?0 votos 3 comentarios
Ive used swiftkey for a few months now, and was very happy with the emojis of this keyboard app.
However I had to restart my phone under factory settings a few days ago, and reinstall every app, including this one. This is when I realized that my emojis look different, more.... Old? Now.
I'm kinda confused, I've checked if there is an update but Google play didn't seem to find any. Is the change of Emoji normal? Can I get them to look like they did again?
Edit: here are the old and new Emoji, as well as my phone's details!
Voice to text button placement6 votos 3 comentarios
Hello, I'm a beta user, I don't bother with any other keyboard apps, this one is perfect. I do agree with all post that the voice to text button should be easier to access. Why can't you just create a custom keyboard (or two) 😀 with the key placement stand alone by itself...

Swiftkey errornously capitalize 'i' in swedish scentence6 votos 3 comentarios
I have the languages English (US) and Swedish enabled.
Whenever I type a Swedish sentence, swiftkey will capitalize the word 'i' (which means 'in' in Swedish).
Swiftkey should be able to determine that it is in a Swedish language context and NOT apply English language rules.
Russian/Ukrainian combo-1 votos 3 comentarios
Firstly, I have SwiftKey Beta.
A friend of mine has the original app, and I noticed he had a joint Russian/Ukrainian layout under the Russian language, but I don't. Is there a way of getting it in my app or somehow exporting my prediction database to the regular app?
Ideally, I would like Russian and Ukrainian to be joined, like it is done for English and German, for example. I still need predictions for both languages.

Predictions2 votos 3 comentarios
I have been using SwiftKey for long time. I write in English, Marathi & Hindi. These option of using the language is given on space bar. Mostly when I am typing in english the predicted word is in any other 2 languages. I have to go back space delete the word & type it in english most of the time. The predictions should not be mixed up.
Some times while typing the word the correct prediction is shown on the left column but the word appears from the centre column. If I misspelle a word it is not corrected nor shown with underline. Let me know what can be done at my end or you can solve the problems from your software.

Did the algorithm change?1 voto 3 comentarios
Something has changed in the past few months with the algorithm or the way SwiftKey works because it's not as correct or as intuitive as it used to be. I constantly get the wrong word with none of the suggestions even close to what I'm swiping. Then I have to delete the entire word an go slowly to get it to recognize what I'm aiming for.
In addition, it often seems to miss the first letter of the swipe pattern like it doesn't detect I'm swiping until I'm on my way to the second letter of whatever word. This too results in incorrect suggestions.
Finally, "I'm" gets replaced with "I" automatically all the time even though "I'm" appears for a split second before it's corrected.
Should I try reinstalling or did something change in the way the program/algorithm works? This is incredibly frustrating. I think something might be broken.

Swipe to delete working very poorly with Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Android 7.0)0 votos 3 comentarios
I've been using SwiftKey from the beginning and it's really a superb, especially the swipe to delete function.
However, I switched from Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and now the swipe to delete works really poorly. Sometimes deletes whole word, sometimes a character, sometimes nothing. Most of the time you need to swipe left several times, before the delete works. This is really annoying and it's driving me nuts.
I have tried both latest versions, but no difference with the behaviour.
