About a month ago, I'm guessing with the latest update of SwiftKey Beta, a new feature to predict icons appeared. These aren't emojis but some sort of icons. For example, when I type a number, a die with that number comes up as a prediction. I typed snow and a snowman came up. Point and a finger, etc. I have emoji predictions turned off. Every time one of these shows up, I have to hit "Do not predict". When I switch to the normal SwiftKey, these annoying features do not appear. What is going on?

SwiftKey retroactively replaces words when flowing quickly0 votos 1 comentario
As of recent versions of SwiftKey (not sure when it started, but it's happening as of version 220.127.116.11), SwiftKey will go back and replace the most recent word with completely different words or random letters if I am flowing very quickly. For example, if I'm flowing some two-word phrase that SwiftKey normally predicts each individual word reliably from my flows, then if I go fast enough that I start flowing the second word too soon after I finish the first (but there *is* a gap - I am fully lifting my finger off the keypad between each word), SwiftKey will delete the first word and replace it with something completely different.
EDIT: Steps to reproduce:-
1). Open a text editor
2). Try to flow "I know some really good cooks" as fast as you can.
Result: "I know" is entered correctly every time, but "some really" turns into gibberish. On various attempts I got "really well", "about the es", "talu y", among other phrases. If I repeat the above changing nothing except the interval between each word, SwiftKey enters it just fine, so it's not a problem with the flow algorithm predicting the wrong words.
Obviously YMMV, but the above happens pretty reliably for me.

DO NOT PREDICT AGAIN !!! When will be fixed?1 voto 1 comentario
I am still very frustrated by this issue guys!!!!
What "DO NOT PREDICT AGAIN" means for you exactly????
AGAIN means 2nd,3rd,4th.....NEVER AGAIN
You should change it to ...AGAIN FOR A WHILE ... to reflect what it really does.
When i choose again i would expect to never see that prediction, but NO, it keeps learning it again ....
WHAT is so hard to understand?
Impossible to temporarily change keyboard on the fly1 voto 0 comentarios
Hi. I've been a very happy Swiftkey user for several years now, first on various Nexus cell phones and a Nexus 10 tablet, and now on a Pixel phone and Samsung A (10") tablet. And therein lies the problem.With my new tablet, when I click in a text field, I no longer get the keyboard icon on the lower right of the screen, an icon I use regularly in order to switch to the Enpass keyboard and fill in user ids and passwords. There seems to be no way to temporarily switch from Swiftkey to another keyboard on this tablet. However, if I define Gboard as my default keyboard, I can long-press on the spacebar to switch keyboards. I have searched through the various settings in Swiftkey, but have been unable to find a similar functionality. Is there a solution to the problem on my tablet? I will add that I cannot get the centered number pad in landscape mode either even though it is enabled. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.Jill
Emoji and keyboard issue [Needs more info]0 votos 1 comentario
In text, Facebook private message, or emails, the issue I'm writing about isn't an issue at all. But when I post anything on my own Facebook wall, someone else's wall, in a comment thread, or even in a group/page, the frustration is right up in my face.
If I set an emoji before I type, I can't add words in the normal fashion; I would need to type the first letter, hit the space bar, hit back, then add the remaining letters. That needs to be done for every successive word and it's annoying as hell.
I place the emoji, I type a word longer than one character and everything but one character remains. My Samsung j1-6 highlights the first letter and replaces it with each new letter in the word. So 'banana' would become 'a'.
How do I fix this annoying af phone? And please don't tell me to just stop adding emojis. It's a built in feature that I should be able to friggen utilize whenever I wish.

I am trying send GIFs in text messages and most of them show as https://media.giphy.com/media/IcifS1qG3YFlS/giphy.gif rather than the actual GIF to be sent. I really like the keyboard minus this problem, how do I send the actual GIF and not a text. I've download the GIFPHY app and it didn't help.

I have an issue with Swiftkey not working sometimes when I try to type on Whatsapp and some other apps. I can see words being predicted but they do not appear on the app itself. It usually works again when I relaunch the app. This has never happened before after quite some time.

Recover deleted word0 votos 0 comentarios
Recently, I discovered the option of deleting something by swiping to the left. That gave me the idea of introducing a feature where if you swipe to the right it recovers the last word you deleted. This would help if you deleted something accidentally.
Lags on Android Nougat on Moto X Style0 votos 0 comentarios
Could I please get some help with troubleshooting or tuning up SwiftKey?
Ever since the Android Nougat update, and even after I completely wiped the phone and reinstalled the OS, SwiftKey has been really laggy.
There are two kinds of lag:
- A 2-5 second wait for the keyboard to appear onscreen
- Lags when I'm typing and the whole phone freezes, then a few seconds later, all the keystrokes I've entered in SwiftKey are entered onscreen.
These lags only occur when SwiftKey is active.
The lags went away after the phone wipe but lately they have recurred. They occur even after I restart the phone.
Hope someone can help, or suggest an alternative keyboard app ;-)

Gesture word flow language problems1 voto 1 comentario
Hello SwiftKey Support,
I just wanted to raise a quick concern I am having with the gesture "swiping" technique of typing. I am very pleased with SwiftKey so far, especially with the word recognition feature which has taken words from my saved past text messages.
The problem is, it is taking lots of words that are in Spanish. I am bilingual, and I have activated the two languages (Spanish and English), but when I use gesture typing on the English keyboard, it gives me lots of Spanish words. I feel like the accuracy would be increased if it didn't suggest any spanish words in the english keyboard (and vice versa).
Is there some way to solve this problem? Is there a way to go into my personal dictionary and delete the Spanish words that have been saved?
Delayed entry0 votos 0 comentarios
I changed from regular version to beta a long time ago because it would ship a letter and after I added a few letters, it would then add it after my cursor while I'm typing the next word.
Now I have both versions doing it.

Big hands, little buttons0 votos 0 comentarios
I want to try to make that little dot at the bottom of the cursor, that you can press and hold and then move left to right or up or down or whatever. Basically instead of having to just click or guess where the cursor is it's the little.......I don't freaking know what to call it.....THE LIL HELPY HELPERTON DOT BELOW THE CURSOR, SO YOU CAN MOVE THE CURSOR!!!!! (Sorry.....long day)..... anyways it would be very helpful if I could make that little dot BIGGER so that I'm able to move the cursor around easier. Thank you very much

Random letters, spaces and gibberish words.9 votos 24 comentarios
In this post I'm going to leave in errors in quotations and some corrected words as parentheticals to show "t" what's going on. Reading this post will probably be about as "r" frustrating as it is typing it out. I'm pretty sure this issue started within the past week, "u it" (but) random letters "go Vila" words and "r flags t" (spaces) began to pop up when "r t" using the flow "y y toxin" (function) of the keyboard. Sometimes it will even put in random gibberish words, and "y hovering" (sometimes) I just "have to u" give up and manually touch type things in.
Anybody else having this issue? Any ideas how to fix it?

Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it26 votos 28 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....
Brackets in right to left languages2 votos 0 comentarios
I'm using SwiftKey in Hebrew and for dive reason when using brackets it's acting as if it's a left to right language and not the opposite. So it will put the opening bracket right after the previous word instead of putting a space in between and will add a space before the closing bracket.
I guess it happens in all right to left languages.
For example -

Cannot remove word prediction Respondida4 votos 16 comentarios
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,
