New Animoj on SwiftKey Beta on Android is broken for text messaging as whenever I create it, instead of sending it within message, keyboard wants to share and brings up share UI.

Hi! Love your keyboard! It´s the best one!!!

My pocket somehow made the Keyboard small, now it's stuck small0 votos 0 comentarios
Somehow my pocket screwed with the keyboard. Made it a different key layout, put it in split mode, and made it small. I've fixed everything but the size. I cannot make it bigger and it's way too small now.

Keyboard suddenly goes to max size while typing0 votos 0 comentarios
I have set the keyboard to be a custom size (smaller) and sometimes when I type quickly it goes back to the standard large size. I have to resize it again. I'm not pressing the dotted square icon on the bottom left.
Swiping predictions got very bad recently0 votos 0 comentarios
Hello. Have no idea how to leave a feedback, so I post here. Sorry if that's a wrong place.
Last few weeks the prediction while swiping got much worse. Was there an update?
Especially in Ukrainian. Shows me words from a different language.
I assume it depends on a context (app) I'm within. Because right now is good. But I switch to slack or a messenger and it gets bad again.
Not sure what to do about it.

Accented characters at first place1 voto 2 comentarios
In every single keyboard in the world, if you long press a letter, you get a variety of additional symbols and accented characters (according to language) at first position. The reason is obvious, you type more words than special symbols like brackets. In Czech language, almost every word has at least one accented character. With SwiftKey, where accented characters on second position after brackets etc, typing is even worse than with stock keyboard. I love many things of SwiftKey, but this is major issue while typing in language using diacritics.
This is example of text in Czech, it is about SwiftKey by the way:
SwiftKey je jedna z nejpoužívanějších virtuálních klávesnic ve smartphonech. Někteří výrobci, např. Huawei/Honor nebo Sony, ji dokonce do svých nadstaveb předinstalovávají jako primární klávesnici, ale stáhnout z marketu a instalovat na platformy Android a iOS ji může každý. Nově je androidová mutace SwiftKey zase o něco chytřejší. Microsoft jako její současný vlastník do ní přidal překladač v reálném čase.
You see how many diacritics is there? Can you imagine how insane it is to write this while every long tap option has a bracket or comma at first position?
I saw similar topics here with Hungarian user complaining and the topic was flagged "not planned". Why? This is not about improvement to be the best keyboard out there, this is more like issue to be fixed for SwifKey not to be the worst keyboard available.
Japanese input errors0 votos 0 comentarios
There is an issue with Japanese input where you do not get "standard alphabet" predictions such as katakana of typed letters. For example, there are times when you type "whi" ウィ should appear in prediction but what you see in prediction bar are several of うぃ. One of which does provide ウィ once selected but no way of knowing which one it is. it is incorrectly displayed. also it does not distinguish narrow katakana and normal katakana letters in prediction bar in some cases. in case of うぃ、one of 3 results in ｳｨ. in all case of single katakana word prediction, prediction bar shows 2 of the same normal katakana but one is narrow katakana once selected.
as for narrow katakana, it is not typically used, so it would be nice to have an option to turn off narrow katakana from showing up. long stings of katakana is typically used for foreign words and it is typically impossible with swiftkey to provide proper prediction. having dedicated katakana conversion key of sort to turn all currently typed letters to turn into katakana would be nice addition, as most traditional type software do for japanese.
Japanese input predictions too large0 votos 0 comentarios
The Japanese input has recently had this annoying problem. The typing is normal, but if I try to enlarge the prediction box by pressing the downwards pointing arrow, the predictions become unusable.
The same thing happens on landscape mode:
The predictions apparently work normally, since pressing those huge buttons doesn't give the right prediction. They are only drawn like that. For example, pressing the right edge of the "the" prediction would give "www.google.com" as a prediction instead of "the."
I tried deleting all data from Swiftkey, but the Japanese predictions worked normally only for about one minute while I was adjusting settings. Reverting the settings to normal did not fix the problem.
My device is Samsung Galaxy tab A model SM-T585. I have the latest device and Swiftkey versions. I have android 8.1.0. Swiftkey is version 220.127.116.11. This problem has been present for several months.
There is no Account option in SwiftKey setting0 votos 0 comentarios
I have a Chinese version Sony Xperia 1 and had updated my pre-installed SwiftKey to the latest version via Google Play.
I'd like to sign in and sync the data, but I cannot find the Account button in the setting. There is the same issue of SwiftKey Beta which clear install from Google Play.
Could anyone help me with this issue?
Device: Sony Xperia 1 J9110 (never rooted)

PLEASE ALLOW MOVING ARROW KEYS TO TOP!!!1 voto 1 comentario
Hi! I've been trying for days to find out how to contact someone in support but all their email ever does is send an autoreply that says they'll get back to you... which, they never do. So much for that!!!
ANYWAY... I'm putting this here so that hopefully someone at SwiftKey Support will see this and get it to the right ears??
I love the fact that this keyboard allows for arrow keys BUT I HATE that they are at the BOTTOM of the keyboard! I am ALWAYS accidentally hitting them and moving my cursor around to places in my text where I don't want it to be!! I would LIKE to be able to MOVE the arrow key row to the TOP of the keyboard, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do this in the keyboard configuration.
Would the Developers PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE offer this feature?!?!? Having the arrow keys stuck at the bottom of the keyboard and always accidentally hitting them is REALLY frustrating me to the point of I'm about to UNINSTALL.... :(

Question about email domain fill list Respondida-1 votos 1 comentario
when entering an email address with Swiftkey, there's the key with the @-sign to the right of the space bar. When doing a long press, it offers a list of domain names (for me "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com" and "@gmail.com") for quick fill. Is there any way to edit this list? I would love to add a few entries to this list.
Sync & backup *all* pinned CLIPBOARD clips & keyword shortcuts for them (or at least: optional Import/Export as .txt or .xml) ACROSS phones!2 votos 2 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!

SwiftKey for Android symbol customization1 voto 0 comentarios
I would like to have the option to customize where long pressed symbols are located. I've had SwiftKey for a long time and each time I try it I usually go back to my Samsung keyboard. Maybe it could have options set to other keyboard mapping?
Another issue is auto capitalization does not work when using quotes, you have to hit shift. This was never a problem on my Samsung keyboard.
Getting used to SwiftKey - Basic features - Capitalization, Word Selection, More Suggestions, Compositing, Shortcuts Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm somewhat new to SwiftKey, as I have used Swype in the past. Even after it has been discontinued, it stayed on my old phone until now. Now, with a new Galaxy S10 (running Android 9), I tried the newest version of SwiftKey from the Play Store, but I feel like I'm missing out on how to use/find basic features, so I have to ask for a little help. :)
So, what I'm looking for:
- How can I increase the number of word suggestions from my swiping? I type in different languages simultaneously, so having only three suggestions means that I have to delete the word that I just swiped and swipe it again if the word I intentioned wasn't suggested (as there are more words available that I could have meant). Having more options to choose from (by scrolling the suggestion/prediction bar), makes the workflow a lot better and quicker.
- How can I capitalize a word that I just typed, especially when it's not in the dictionary yet? Currently, I have to go the text, go delete the first character, use the shift key, type the first character again. Again, that's bad workflow, so I'm looking for the key/shortcut/gesture to just capitalize the current/last word.
- How can I extend the current word? Say, I want to write "SwiftKey" but the keyboard doesn't know the word yet. Right now, I have to swipe both words, resulting in "swift" and "key". Now I have to capitalize both words (or press the shift key beforehand), go back to the text, delete the space inbetween them, put the cursor at the end of the text and continue. Again, really bad workflow. How can I, after swiping "Swift" make sure that the word gets extended by the next word I swipe?
- Bonus question: Are there keyboard shortcuts for selecting the current word, all text (ctrl-a, basically) as well as copy, cut and paste or navigating through the text via cursors?
Thanks in advance for your help, everyone! :)
Edit: Uh, also: How to write German and English quotation marks instead of inch signs? How to write a long dash? (QWERTZ extended)

Swiftkey changing to the numeric pad in the middle of a sentance0 votos 0 comentarios

why don't you let me switch off autopredict?0 votos 3 comentarios
as nice as autocorrection and autoprediction may be, at times, as annoying can it be at other times. if you are a creative writer, especially autopredict can be your worst enemy, especially if you are writing about a subject Swiftkey knows nothing about. Same if you write in, or experiment with, different writing styles. all this does, is the writer more dumb, and feeds more data in the big data machine.
Not allowing me to remove this annoying prediction bar is just more proof that data collection means everything and the user means nothing. All we gonna end up with are people too dumb to write a coherent sentence without the help of a machine and further down the inability to communicate at all without the crutch of technology.
I would like to request that with all your efforts to speed up the writing process and make everybody use the same old boring words in the sequence most recently collected by you, to allow the folks who still write word by word, by selection of their own personal choice, to do so without having to look and be disturbed constantly by an annoying prediction bar
