How do I reduce the doubletap speed for capital letters keyboard?0 votos 0 comentarios
Most times I doubletap the Shift key to turn on the CAPITALS keyboard it fails. It doesn't recognise the doubletap. But if I tap slower it does. So I wish to speed up the system recognition of the doubletap on the Shift key.
How to improve predictions?0 votos 0 comentariosI have been using SwiftKey for a long time now but predictions have started to get bad. I want to add some words myself. How can I add the words and what the hell happened to option to synchronise them from Gmail, Facebook et cetera?
SwiftKey has become useless0 votos 0 comentariosIt is now very common that SwiftKey purposes completely words that are compteront different from what I've typed. Or that may have diverging in common with the word that I have typed. But it seems that SwiftKey tries to find a word that resembles what I've typed, instead of giving me the word that I've typed. As you can see from this text, most words are correct now. This might be because I'm syrupy gin English and the guessing still before functions. When I'm working in dB facsimile haïssable it's a nightmare. I mean, is haissable even a word?
Toolbar icons not working0 votos 0 comentariosAfter updating the application and getting the new toolbar, I'm unable to access themes through it. Same thing happens with the Settings icon on the toolbar, when tapping Info icon, it doesn't either allow access themes through the option listed there. When accessing to Puppets and trying it, doesn't do anything either. I hope I can have some insight on this matter, thank u~

Feature Request: Have arrow keys require long press.0 votos 0 comentarios
I love the arrow keys on the SwiftKey Keyboard, but I've an issue with them.
I frequently go to press space bar and accidentally hit the 'back' arrow key. As I type quite fast this results in my typing cursor going back one letter into the word and breaking off the final letter as I type more. It looks a bit like this:
"Typing a messag gets reall annoying sometimesye"
Basically, in this example, I hit the the 'back' arrow instead of the space bar at the end of the words 'message' and 'really'.
I'd prefer to continue using the arrow keys if possible because they're quite useful, so my feature request is this:
Would it be possible to have a setting for the arrow keys require long press to activate? If a short press is detected on the arrow keys, have said arrow keys perform the action of the key above it.
(This would specifically to the 'down arrow' key and the 'back arrow' key as the 'up' and 'right' keys have multiple buttons above them they're not really an issue to be honest.)
Opening Swiftkey0 votos 0 comentarios
Swiftkey is installed on my Android 7 phone.
When I press the Swiftkey app it doesn't open the app so I cannot get into it.
This started when I was trying to find out why I started getting emojis instead of enter arrow.
Any thoughts as to what has happened please?

Where did this "face" come from on top of my keyboard and how do I remove it?1 voto 1 comentario
The keyboard just popped up recently (must have been an update?) with this really super-annoying and distracting face-like image as a watermark on the keyboard (two circles, and a rectangular-ish hat). I HATE it. It is causing me to mis-type things, and I want it gone. I cannot figure out how or why it got there, but I need to know how to remove it or I will be deleting this program. Please advise.

Frustration1 voto 0 comentariosI'm just about at the end of my rope trying to find a decent keyboard for my phone. One that I can swipe or Glide or flow or whatever you call it with some accuracy. This is terrible. I tried to swipe in words like plug and I get plopping. I tried getting economy and I get proper nouns constantly like Erving or Everson. I try swiping demands over and over, using looping trails or straight lines it doesn't. matter I get Ferdinando. Party gives me Lasorda. I always end up resorting to voice to text. But getting to the microphone button requires a long press clear on the other side of the keyboard. So what I've done is I've resorted to deleting every word that it predicts until I can get my word by swiping. 60% of the time that works. I just can't understand how there's not one single keyboard out there the works well. I have a brand new OnePlus 7t phone. I used to have a keyboard on a Samsung phone that you get tune speed versus accuracy for instance. So I know they make keyboards that work well. So why should I keep trying your keyboard? Gboard half sux but it's not this bad. Your settings are intensely Limited. I don't know I'm just so annoyed that I can't communicate through my phone right now that I'm beside myself. By the way I can swipe with my eyes closed with about 60 to 70% accuracy typically.
multiline text field in Facebook messenger-1 votos 0 comentarios
When I write in Facebook Messenger, instead of keeping the existing textfield (and see the last reply from my friends), I get a full multiline text area hiding everything. I would prefer to keep the "existing" text field from the Messenger application.
I looked in the swiftkey for a configuration and did not find anyway to disable that behaviour.
Can someone help me with this?

Letter "a" capitalizing before a proper noun1 voto 2 comentariosWhen I type a sentence with the letter "a" preceding a proper noun, the keyboard will automatically capitalize the "a" unless I press the spacebar before the noun. For example, if I want to type "a Cadillac," it will come out as "A Cadillac." This will occur in the middle of a sentence where the "a" doesn't require a capital letter. How can I stop this? Otherwise, I do want auto caps to occur, so I don't want to turn it off completely.

New to SwiftKey... capitalization question0 votos 0 comentarios
I'm coming from gboard, and I love the ability to select a word and hit the shift key to cycle through capitalization of the word. Does SwiftKey have the same feature? I tried using the same method, and it didn't work. What am I doing wrong?
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.

"Device restricts the app" resulting in the inability to create a custom theme1 voto 0 comentarios
Running emui 8 (oreo) on a rooted device (non detectable and not detected by google safetyNet)
tried re-installing keyboard but when opening an image for a custom theme:
An error has occured
You are not in battery saving mode
You have an internet browser
Your internet browser is enabled
If these don't work, your device has restricted the app and we can't redirect you.
It worked previusly before a reset.
Gestures0 votos 0 comentariosOk so what the hell. It has been several years and still the most basic thing to turn off gestures isn't implemented. How is it so hard to code that in? The flow is annoying couse it randomly falsely activates and starts writing words or spaces while the gesture is annoying couse every time I click too fast and swipe accidentally I either delete the whole damn word or close the keyboard..
Words get added0 votos 0 comentarios

Translation is not consistent and has bugs0 votos 0 comentariosTranslation has a couple of bugs in it. 1) Sometimes when I begin to type in the translation field it will put 1 letters in the destination area then stop. I have to delete the letter and begin again. But the second time it will always work correctly. Also it is inconsistent in whether it can be used as "read translation" mode or "typing translation" mode. This is livable but very disappointing since the ne android 10 has made other translation software difficult to use. And not the easiest to use is your translation addin. But I can not figure out what switches it from reading and translating what is copied to the mode that requires you to paste or type something in the field. Confusing and difficult. I use Samsung note 10 +
