Japanese keyboard changes0 votos 0 comentariosThe Japanese keyboard has a button for あ. Swiping up right left down gives う えいお respectively. This is the common way for Japanese keyboards to work. Untill yesterday the あbutton showed the あ and then in the correct directions in a smaller font the other options for swiping in those directions. However, since today these are gone and it just shows あ. As someone not super fluent in Japanese or their keyboard this has made typing very difficult. Can there be an option to enable/disable showing this smaller font?
Typing preview dissapeared1 voto 4 comentarios
Up until recently I've had a text preview above the top row of the keyboard showing what I've typed with an OK button next to it(when OK was clicked, the text preview disappears). This went missing a couple of days ago when trying to search to send a gif. And now can't get it back. Anyone know how I can restore this?
Accented characters with bluetooth keyboard0 votos 0 comentarios
In my SwiftKey set-up I use multiple languages - English(UK)/Polish, Japanese. I also use a bluetooth keyboard (Fintie brand).
I am struggling to type in Polish using this set-up, as I cannot use the accented letters. Ctrl + letter does nothing, Alt + letter gives ridiculous results (like the German ß being inputted, instead of the Polish ś, despite me not having installed a German language).
Is it something I am missing, do I need a different key combination, or is it impossible for me to use accented Polish letters using my bluetooth keyboard with Swiftkey?
Afrikaans accented characters visible on keyboard/theme0 votos 0 comentariosSwiftKey, a very long post. Accented characters in Afrikaans I’m Afrikaans and I’ve loved SwiftKey since inception due to being able to see accented characters on the keyboard without long pressing a key to see what accented characters are hiding behind it. Then I had to reset my phone and lost the theme I had with the keys and accented characters visible on it. I wish I could upload a screenshot here to show you. But, on all the themes available in the app I can see the qwerty keys but, I see a “clean” keyboard without the accented characters on it. For example, I have to press on e to see what accented characters are hiding beneath it. Like, hoerskool which means prostitute school and then hoërskool which means high-school. Hoërskool means that it is the last year at school before you graduate to go to a university. Long post but I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to get a theme, keyboard with the accented characters visible on it. With love from a sulty hot Johannesburg South Africa 😊
I am unable to type the words "gay, lesbian, and homosexual."0 votos 1 comentario
I am unable to use the words "gay, lesbian, homophobic, and homosexual." I am gay and active in my community and must use these words all of the time. This app/service appears to be homophobic it/themself(selves.) I see this was a topic that someone else posted several years ago, and that person was brushed off with unacceptable answers. I think I'm switching back to my old keyboard app.

[Feature Request] Make [Shift] change all keys *exactly* as a standard QWERTY keyboard1 voto 2 comentarios
This drives me crazy... have to search for symbols because they are above letters as long-press, instead of as alternate characters for the number keys when I tap [shift] (the large up arrow key).
Many people rely on memory of standard QWERT keyboard layout.
I even sometimes use key patterns for passwords instead of remembering the actual characters.
Please provide option(s) that allow the behavior of keys to match standard QWERTY keyboard as much as possible.
Also other standard keyboards that other people might be familiar with should similarly be supported.
The number keys are wasted on the Swiftkey keyboard, with neither [Shift] nor [long press] having any effect. Both should do something other than the numbers.
That's 20 possible characters, emojis, or anything else, that could eliminate to need to tap additional keys to bring up alternate keyboards or selection screens.
I realize that there may not be room (depending on screen size and orientation) for keys like tilde-backquote, underscore-dash, equals-plus... but that is where long-press can help. BUT when the screen is in portrait mode or simply larger... then please show a more of or a full qwerty layout.
If nothing else, stop wasting those number keys!
Sync & backup *all* pinned CLIPBOARD clips & keyword shortcuts for them (or at least: optional Import/Export as .txt or .xml) ACROSS phones!6 votos 7 comentarios
I use SwiftKey on multiple phones. Same login / account.
They should all be able to add new clips but also have ability to SEE clips added from different phones (same SwiftKey user!)
I'm speaking about - SYNC.
Our clipboards clips AREN'T BACKED UP AND SYNCED.
I have so many of them set-up. Do u know how much TIME I have spent setting Pinned clipboard clips and shortcuts up, just to lose them all? :(
Please, SwiftKey team, SYNC them.
Or at least, give option to export and import! (XML, TXT, whatever - as long as Import exists, too!)
I lose so much of my hard work because you DON'T backup/sync clipboard content and pinned items and shortcuts ACROSS PHONES, when SwiftKey account is the same...
I once lost my phone and bought another, enabled SwiftKey and NONE OF MY CLIPS were saved. :((((Such a big disappointment!
Please give this HIGH priority, PLEASE.
Kindest regards, Helen
PS. Do you, other fellow SwiftKey users, agree that there should be Backup & Sync (and/or Import / Export) of our Clipboard's clips?Pinned ones, especially!
Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it25 votos 26 comentarios
Currently using latest beta. I am a technical / computer person and therefore my writing vocabulary often includes things with period/dots in them that are not words (i.e. e.g. 192.168.1.1 www.vcu.edu and so-on). The constant forced auto-insertion of a space when I am trying to use a period as a dot, not as punctuation, is driving me crazy and often forces mangled/incorrect emails, texts, etc. I thought turning on the option to insert a period by double-tapping the space bar would turn that off - it did not.
I seem to recall in a previous version of Swiftkey there was the ability to turn off the dot/period from forcing a space after it.
I think when I tried another keyboard (GBoard?) it did not do that. However, I am used to the way Swiftkey works and would hate to switch to something else....

Any manner to make the autoselect decide on "i" rather than "u"?0 votos 1 comentario
All too frequently i reread my text to look that the letter "u" become located in which i truly meant "i", which evidently adjustments the entire meaning of the sentence. i never use "u" as a diminutive of "you". i can long press it in my are expecting https://gbapps.net/ bar and tell it no longer to are expecting it once more however that does nothing for single letters. Is there any way to manually assign prediction priority so that "i" is constantly suggested earlier than "u", regardless of how specific my swiping can be?
Needed Change: Do not auto-space in URL fields1 voto 1 comentario
In a browser URL bar, the only time punctuation is needed is in a URL. There are no spaces after punctuation in URLs. Therefore, SwiftKey should not do any auto-spacing in a URL field.

IPA symbols14 votos 5 comentarios
I wish I have the opportunity to use the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and the symbols that indicate the "quantity" in Latin words (long and short), on all the vowels. I'm a student of linguistics and I think it could help a lot of people.

Spell check pop-up window white text on white background in some browsers1 voto 0 comentariosSamsung Galaxy S10e, Android 10, Swiftkey version 220.127.116.11. When using SwiftKey, I have found that both Opera and Chrome browsers display a spell check pop-up window in white text on a white background, making it unreadable. I have tried both Samsung keyboard and Gboard and neither of them have the spell check pop-up window. Firefox browser does not seem to have the spell check pop-up window. Samsung browser displays the spell check pop-up window correctly, with black text on a white background. Which site I am on does not appear to matter.

Emoji search (as in Gboard)23 votos 22 comentarios
It would be quite useful, if there were a way to search for emojis, when the Emoji button has been pressed.
It should be kind of like how Gboard does it, where you switch to Emoji mode and then you can search (eg. you type "cat" and see the cat emoji 🐈).
This is a feature request for the SwitfKey Android keyboard; I cannot use Swiftmoji, as it is english only and not available in Switzerland.

Way to customize GIF sources2 votos 0 comentarios
I find that the source that SwiftKey uses to find GIFs is lacking. There are a lot of sources on other apps that have more relevant GIFs, that you cannot find using SwiftKey. Is there a way to add certain sites/sources to the GIF search functionality in SwiftKey?

Swipe spacebar to change language needs modifying to prevent accidental switches3 votos 2 comentarios
This drives me insane on my Android devices. I want to have both Thai and English, BUT the tiniest side movement when pressing spacebar to insert a space switches language. This happens to me incredibly often, so often that I have had to simply go back to one language and reactivate Thai language only when needed - not a great solution! If I didn't love so much else about Swiftkey I would uninstall it, but it is great for me in every other way...
PLEASE add an option so that the spacebar MUST be long pressed and swiped to change language (or any other method of switching that wouldn't happen twice during every message that I write!). Slight sideswipe is just far too easy to do by accident.
