Unwanted comma typo instead of spacebar0 votos 0 comentariosHello, I just want to have an option to hide/disable the left comma character right next to the space bar because I hit it all the time when typing instead of the space bar and it messes up all the sentences. My readers are striving to understand what I'm typing. Please put an option to hide this left comma sign and use the right one instead.
How can I edit/remove menu bar2 votos 2 comentariosI've recently updated the app and really dislike the new menu bar. I have zero need to use a language translator or bing. Or a big history of things I've copy and pasted before. It's annoying as I keep catching it when typing. Is there anyway to get rid of these functions? I'd rathe have emicons and gifs as we're there before. I'm on the verge of deleting the app and finding one that isn't full of useless functions.

Using Tap Strap with Swiftkey suggested words0 votos 1 comentario
I am using a Tap keyboard and, overall it works very well. The one thing I can't find a solution to is selecting the suggested words. Tap state that there is no setting for this, however, I was wondering if Swiftkey might hold a solution.
I have noticed that when I am typing with the screen keyboard hidden (for physical keyboards) the suggested keywords have a superscript 1, 2, & 3 next to them running from left to right. I am assuming that these numbers relate to a shortcut to them. My question is, how do you access these shortcuts? It might be through a function that the Tap cannot replicate, but I would like to know so that I can see if I can work it into a solution.
If anyone else is using a Tap, I would be interested to know if you have found a solution to the suggested words issue. Tap support is useless.

Bug Report - Double spacing when spacebar is tapped0 votos 0 comentarios
After upgrading to One UI 2.0, I've been having this issue of "double spacing" when I tap on the spacebar. While typing, the space between words are double instead of single. When I switch over to the default Samsung keyboard, this doesn't happen.
I've tried clearing cache, re-installing and even installed the beta version but have yet to resolve the issue. Not sure if other users are facing the same bug. Hope someone has the solution. TIA.

Swiftkey recently started to change my text into junk when I'm correcting myself-1 votos 4 comentarios
All autocorrects turned off, wasn't happening few months before. Sample - write sentence "That would be". Put cursor after word "would", start deleting letter by letter. When there's only "That w be" remaining, text suddenly changes to "Thatul be". If I try to correct such cases (especially in longer sentences), usually I'm getting some other meaningless replacement, to the point where I'm unable to correct at all without rewriting everything from the end. That's insane.
Further in the sample, autocomplete options still show choices "wouldn't would would be". If I select "would", final sencence becomes "Thatuld be". Which looks like replacement indexes are getting corrupted, in addition to the autocorrect which had to not happen at all.

10-key only keypad1 voto 4 comentariosEnhancement request: I'm not sure where to request this but most other keyboards have a 10-key, numbers only keypad. It shows up when you click their 123 key on the main keyboard (usually the bottom left area). It is also part of most home, or larger laptop keyboards, on the right side. Several folks have made similar requests to Swiftkey,even as far back as 3 years ago and the "answered" reply is never a good answer. Can we get this in the paid app one day or do the developers not know how to? I would think it would be as simple as rearranging the number screen that you already have but in a 10-key arrangement. A row of numbers isn't good enough and is hard to use. We already get a row of numbers on the main keyboard so the one offered now doesn't really add anything for the users. If you want to see an acceptable keypad, for example, take a look at Gboard's numeric keyboard. If there is a place to officially make this request, can you please forward this to that forum or the developers todo list? Thanks.
Swiftkey Backup Problem8 votos 16 comentarios
Hello. My problem is about backup and sync. First I have to tell you these. 5 years ago I was using LG G3, and I moved on iPhone 6 Plus and I was able to use my old predictions. And then I moved on Xiaomi Mi 8, I was still be able to use all my learned data. And now I changed my phone to Oneplus 7 pro, and in the app I cannot see any of my learned data.
https://data.swiftkey.com/view-data in this website I can see my learned data, the words that I use most before on the other phones, but they won't show up on my new phone. 5-6 years of learned data was making my life easier but now I am not happy to use this app. So question is what should I do?

Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it21 votos 23 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....

Delete downloaded themes1 voto 1 comentario
I'd like to delete some themes I don't want so that when I look at the ones I own in the "yours" list I'd only see the ones I want to use. Isn't there a way to hard press to delete a theme in my downloads? Even if they take up little space, it's quicker not to have to scroll through themes.

Swiftkey suddenly started capitalizing first letters even though that setting is disabled.3 votos 4 comentarios
I use SwiftKey on Android since almost the beginning. I'm pretty used to it and have found my preferred way of setting it up.
One of the settings I like is the option to not capitalize words automatically. When I chat I mostly prefer not to start with capital letters unless the conversation is formal or professional.
Since maybe a week ago, some (not all) of the words predicted in Spanish are being capitalized automatically and it's annoying. This doesn't happen with all the words, but it must have been a mistake in a language update or something similar (I didn't manually update of change anything in the app during the last month).
I tried enabling the feature and disabling it again but it didn't solve the problem.
Option to make the prediction bar taller0 votos 0 comentarios
Hi. I really like SwiftKey, I've been using it for 10 years. I like how it is design to optimize the writing speed in spite of human errors.
I'm going to report an issue that has been happening to me for years, and it's caused by human error, not by app design, but considering the concept of the app, I think this should be taken into account.
I write using the prediction bar, always, I only use the spacebar when I'm writing a new word that I don't want autocorrected. Very often while typing fast I press by mistake whatever is on the top of the prediction. It seems that the prediction bar is too short and it causes many different problems: If I'm writing in GMail, it moves the cursor to the end of the text (after the signature), if I'm on Google Sheets it makes me touch the symbols that are on the bottom of the screen, and in other apps it opens the sticker list.
I tried changing the size of the keyboard and it helps, but my problem is not with the size of the keys but with the size of the prediction bar. I would like to have an option to make the prediction bar taller without affecting the size of the keys. Another idea would be to add a small space on top of the keyboard. This could all be optional.
I also tried forcing myself to not tap so high, but after literally a decade of repeating the problem I'm contacting you for help.

Ability to use censored gifs1 voto 0 comentarios
I realize that you want to try to keep everyone happy, but we should be able to use adult orientated gifs. As an adult, I am fully capable of knowing when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. A toggle that is turned off by default, but to allow us to turn them on would be great. Right now, I have to switch between keyboards to use them, which is obviously not the solution that I should have to use. Especially with such a great tool as this is :).
