At times there's need for changing font size or face (bold or italics etc) but I couldn't find a way to do it. Is it possible to do it?

Auto-capitalization of "I"7 votes 2 commentaires
I'd like the uppercase "I" to stop being predicted. I've removed it a bunch of times but it still brings it up. I just want to use lowercase "i" from now on. Is the only way to do this to continue to manually correct it on the prediction bar? It doesn't seem to be working.
Japanese keyboard nearly unusable: anyone else?7 votes 8 commentaires
I have English, Chinese, Japanese and German enabled. I find the keyboard in general rather laggy for me, but nothing unbearable. The exception is Japanese, which I am virtually unable to use, both because of extreme lag and because the keyboard can't seem to handle simple phrases or words and will stop showing suggestions.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it an issue with the Japanese keyboard itself, or is it because SwiftKey is becoming overwhelmed by having to make predictions in four languages simultaneously? If it is the latter, would it be possible to switch off this function and switch languages manually? I understand that this is a vital function for many people, but I personally don't need to type in all four languages at once.
Thanks very much! :)
Why is auto correct so bad now?6 votes 3 commentairesEver since Microsoft acquired this product it's been steadily declining in performance. Flow rarely gets the word I mean on the first attempt and auto correct basically does nothing now. It's gotten so bad that I could type "thd" instead of "the" and swiftkey won't correct. In fact, I typed this post on my phone with swiftkey and the previous error was not corrected. Why is it so bad all of the sudden?
White font on white background after the latest Swiftkey update when typing horizontally (from yesterday)6 votes 7 commentaires
Hello Swiftkey Support,
I've been facing with a very annoying issue since the latest Swiftkey update from yesterday.
Suddenly and after this update, I'm not able to type anything on my messengers apps (WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Viber) when having my phone horizontally because Swiftkey changes the font into white color on white background, so basically I can't see what I'm typing.
Before this update, Swiftkey was working absolutely normally, I am absolutely sure because I've been always typing on my phone via horizontally position and the font was in black color and on white background.
This is happening only in case of horizontally typing. When I move my phone to vertical position, I can see white font on dark background, like it's supposed to be in normal way.
But when I move my phone with the same text again into horizontally position, Swiftkey changes by itself the font into white and on white background, so I can't see anything.
Could you please fix this because it's really annoying ?
I've been using Android 10 on my phone.
I've restarted my phone also and it didn't fix the Swiftkey issue. When I changed my keyboard to Gboard, everything is working normally, even in horizontally position.
Thank you very much.
Ability to use censored gifs6 votes 1 commentaire
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 :).
Syncing/Download of saved words to new device issue6 votes 1 commentaire
New Mate 20 Pro handset, trying sync/download saved words etc to new device - Logged in with google account and it tells me it has sync'd, but none of my saved words or stats are available on the new device - I don;t appear to be the only one with this issue - can you advise please?
Installing on a new phone6 votes 4 commentaires
On my old phone I used to have swiftkey and really enjoyed it. My phone died so I got a new one and today I installed swiftkey on it and logged in to the program. One thing I immediately noticed (and was disappointed with) was on my new phone is that all my suggestive words seem to be gone. What I mean is for work I send a lot of similar texts and it got to the point my phone would pretty much suggest the next word I intended to use because I had written that exact sentence so many times. I always saw the app boasting about how many words it had suggested and key strokes it had saved me. Since you have a profile you log into for the program I was hoping it was stored online or something to where these suggestive words would somehow "download" onto the new phone but so far it does not look like. Was there a file or something that was saved locally on the old phone i May be able to move over?
Reset phone, no personal words restored6 votes 14 commentaires
I have been using sk since 2013 and have brought my predictions into new phones 2-3 times so I know my account has info. But when I restored this time I got none of my words that had been in my personal dictionary.
What do I need to do to get my predictions back?
Swiftkey has failed to sync my saved words6 votes 15 commentaires
Sync is enabled on my old and new phones. I have synced both phones ans still i am unable to see my saved words.
Is there any hard way to move my data to my new phone, my old phone has words which are saved for a period of three years.
Sync not possible.6 votes 16 commentaires
I have a new smartphone since yesterday. am connected to a google account. My predictions are not syncronized.
Auto incognito switching and typing (Accented characters)6 votes 1 commentaire
It's awesome to know that SwiftKey can switch to Incognito mode automatically in Chrome/Firefox incognito tabs. But there's an issue.
The keyboard theme/UI for the incognito mode, does not show Accented characters. This causes serious problems while typing or want to type fast.
1. Implement the feature, to show all Accented characters, custom theme in incognito mode (just don't track the typing, and that's all).
2. Give option to turn off Auto incognito switching.
3. Give option to turn off incognito in incognito tab (may be vulnerable).

Remove annoying toolbar (+) icon6 votes 5 commentaires
A couple of versions ago, SwiftKey introduced a new feature called 'toolbar' for easy access to all kinds of features.
Great, though I'm never ever using it.
In fact, I don't want the extra bar to take up screen space because I don't use it anyway.
While typing though, I find myself pressing the +button in the top left corner every minute or so.
This makes me have to close the bar again with the x button, in order to get rid of the useless toolbar.
Introducing new functionality is great, however, please also give us the option to disable this functionality, if we never use it anyway.
I've been using SwiftKey for ages and this has been the only complaint I've had so far.
Flow accuracy (still)6 votes 5 commentaires
When is the accuracy of flow going to get addressed, or even just the ability to reset the tap map?
It's been months and the accuracy is still totally horrific. It is and had been for a long time slightly better when you freshly Install, and the tap map hadn't adjusted the keys to help with accuracy. After a little use and the keys get "adjusted" and you are fighting against the AI that's trying to make things better. This has totally been a huge problem, but it seems to get over looked. As said before reinstalling helps with accuracy, but reinstalling and having to reteach your dictionary and all is not that great of an option,
Will accuracy ever improve?
From the official Microsoft SwiftKey page...
"Frustration-free typing", "Fast and accurate"
Have they even tried using it???
[Feature Request] Make Keyboard Theme and the Navigation Bar match colors6 votes 0 commentaires
The navigation bar on Android devices almost always shows a light or white color navigation bar instead of the same color as the app.
Gboard is implementing this feature and I can't believe SwiftKey doesn't already have it.
If it is dark and I start to type, my entire screen is dark themed but the navigation bar will be a blinding white color.
There are many apps that change this setting to match the rest of the app. Please do it for the SwiftKey keyboard.
I have a Galaxy Note 8 and the only way to have a dark keyboard color is to manually change it for SwiftKey using.a third party app. I would rather it work natively.
Customize Long-press Symbols6 votes 3 commentaires
It would be very nice if there were a way to adjust what symbol(s) are in the long-press menu of each key, as well as which one of those is the default. For instance:
* I use tilde (~) a lot, to indicate a sentence spoken with a joking tone. I'd gladly give up, say, double-quote on 'C' to get quicker access to it. (Yes, I know that if you turn on the dedicated number row, 'E' gets tilde as its long-press instead of 3, but that costs valuable screen real-estate.)
* The number keys, when you have the dedicated number row on, don't have any long-press symbols assigned at all.
* As I Canadian, I use the English (UK) locale, since there isn't a dedicated Canadian English locale and we mostly use the British spellings for words. However, this means SwiftKey insists on making the default long-press symbol on 'X' the pound symbol; since our currency is the Canadian dollar, I'd much rather have it default to the dollar sign.
* As an English-speaker living in Québec, I occasionally need to type a French word or place name which contains an accented character. However the only accents which are used with any frequency are the acute, grave, and circumflex on a vowel or cedilla on 'C'; the other fifty-or-so accented characters available when the 'Show all accented characters' option is on are or little use to me.
customizable special character placement-long press6 votes 1 commentaire
Please allow user to place characters in place for long press on several keys.
This has been suggested for Android (by Matt Winans).
Customization is important because there are many special characters, and there is large variability in the characters to which different users wish quick access.
The concept appears in Blink keyboard, but their implementation is terrible.
[Feature Requests] Don't censor GIFS6 votes 3 commentaires
I just noticed that after a certain update my gifs are now censored. I've been a swift key user since the beginning (since the paid app days) and I'm now actively looking for an alternative. If I wanted to use an app that controls what I can search or use I would just use APPLE.
Punctuation and spaces6 votes 3 commentaires
This is driving me crazy. I get spaces before, but not after, semicolons, colons, etc. But I get spaces after opening parenthesis and brackets. And spaces where there should be nine around apostrophes and quotation marks.
Consider these un-corrected lines:
Well go then ;don't come back.
Trey 'a coat
--(should have been "Trey's coat". Even tap-typing it didn't work the first time).
Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I love SwiftKey, but this is enough to drive me away.
How to disable emoji predictions6 votes 5 commentaires
When I switch to the emoji in the last version, the page shown is a crystal ball (apparently it is the beta predictions), instead of the "recent" (with the clock page). Does anyone knows how to change that ?
Edit April 26, 2018 : well, it looks like the problem has been resolved with the last version. Thanks!
Voice input6 votes 6 commentaires
They only reason why I don't like swift key compared to gboard is due to lack of quick access to voice input. Can you please bring voice input key top right as it's currently placed in the gboard. To be honest Windows phone keyboard was so much better.
Interrobang (‽) character6 votes 4 commentaires
May we please have the interrobang character, ‽, on our keyboards? Perhaps as another option when long-tapping the full stop key?
Stop suggesting capital "i" when I'm typing in Swedish (where lowercase "i" is a common word)6 votes 2 commentaires
I have Swedish and English activated, because I tend to use both languages. But whenever I'm typing a sentence in Swedish and hitting the letter "i", Swiftkey changes that to "I" (capital i) instead, even though my intention was to write "i" (which is a really, really common word in Swedish, meaning "in"). I've tried multiple times to tell swiftkey not to suggest "I" at all, but it doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure the reason is that "I" is an English word, which for some reason takes precedence over the Swedish (equally common) word "i". Please, please, could you develop the software such that the English suggestion does not automatically takes precendence in such "ties", but let it be based on the language the previous word belonged to instead? That would help a lot!
[Feature Request] Trackpad in Spacebar (Android)6 votes 1 commentaire
This feature is requested a long time ago, and I need it. I want the possibility to move the cursor while swiping over the space bar. Arrow Keys are useless, because I always accidentally press on the left arrow key instead of the space bar. Add this, immediately, please!
Swedish Language/layout is forced to type capital "i" every time.6 votes 3 commentaires
When you're typing away with the Swedish language and layout, you're forced to go back and correct all the "i''s. Swiftkey autocorrects every single "i" to a "Capital I".
We never have or ever will use capital "i" mid sentences.
Please make it easier to switch Languages6 votes 2 commentaires
I use three languages on a daily basis.
Having three languages turned on at the same time doesn't work very well, so I have to keep switching one language off and another on multiple times a day, it's a 6 step process...
Please make it a lot easier to switch languages!
[Duplicate] Settings option to Turn off auto spaces6 votes 0 commentaires
Settings option to Turn off auto spaces
So many users have complained about this auto-spacing issue that it surely must be becoming embarrassing to SwiftKey and for as good as SwiftKey has been in other areas, this one failure to address the problem is driving users right away from your products. For credibility of your name being ranked highly, you need to address this problem as soon as possible and it is entirely technically possible to code a fix right now and gain some loyalty back again.
This problem has been an ongoing issue for nearly 12-months now.
Turn off auto spaces:
This is a global issue across all devices!

Remove the incognito theme, please6 votes 9 commentaires
as a person which is using Czech language with a lot of extra letters ("ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í..."), the Incognito mode is perfect for me when I'm writing an SMS, because I can use normal letters ("e, s, c, r, z, y, a, i...") and my SMS is shorter and therefore cheaper.
However, I really don't like the incognito dark theme. Could it be removed and instead just left there my choosen theme? (I use the bright theme, which is perfect for me and I would appreciate to have this theme while incognito mode...)
