How can I turn off the feature which adds a space after every predicted word I select, or punctuation mark? It should only insert a space if I then decide to add another word. Having to delete excess spaces at the ends of things, or sometimes after the "#" in a hash tag, is really getting old quickly.

Disable flow AND gesture.21 votes 19 commentaires
Could it be possible to add a option to disable gesture input altogether?
I do not like using flow as it makes me type slower, so I put it in gesture and because of that, sometimes deletes words or lowers the keyboard which is very annoying.
I am just wanting you to add a option to disable it entirely. I know I would use it, and there has someone else out there too!
Can't Make Keyboard as big as before`0 votes 1 commentaire
I've been using Swiftkey since it was first introduced. I've loved the keyboard the entire time. However, recently, after accidentally having my phone wipe itself because I forgot my PIN. Yeah, I'm a dumb dumb. After reinstalling everything and going through and setting up Swiftkey again, I can no longer make the keyboard as big as it was before. The largest setting is now only about a third of the screen when just minutes before the largest size took up half my screen. The keys were nice and big and I loved it.
Is this something that was grandfathered in because I had such early versions of the app? Is there something I am missing? The largest size is quite terrible now.

Voice button placement36 votes 66 commentaires
SwiftKey is the best. The only thing I wish I could change was the voice dictation button placement. On big phones it is hard to get to. Give me the option to place on right side if screen (like gboard).
I or i0 votes 1 commentaireI have Danish and English language installed and everytime I write "i" is the middle word on my keyboard "I" (capital letter). How do I change this, so "i" is the preferred middle letter on the keyboard?
Voice-to-Text poor functionality on Galaxy S200 votes 1 commentaire
Not sure if this is a SwiftKey problem or a Messages problem or a Google problem but here it goes.......
I just got this Galaxy S20. On my previous phone (Galaxy S9), when I hit the little "microphone" button on my SwiftKey keyboard to do voice to text when using the Messages App for texting, I would simply start talking and the words I was creating by voice would populate the text field in Messages. I could easily see the words as I spoke. After I was done taking, I'd just hit the send button and I was good to go.
With this S20, when I hit the little microphone button on SwiftKey, a window pops up. It is super annoying for a few reasons. One, that stupid grey box that says "Your audio Will be sent....." blocks the first several words that I am speaking, so I can't see that the text to words is translating correctly. Second, if I stop talking for around a second, the voice to text assumes I'm done speaking and closes, preventing me from adding more words if I hesitate to complete a thought. Third and worst of all, after I'm done talking the words I just spoke don't transfer to the text field in Messages. If I tap the empty text field in messages, SOMETIMES the words I just spoke suddenly appear in the text field- maybe 50% of the time. Supper annoying as half the time I have to repeat the whole voice-to-text process or revert to typing.
On my S9, when I hit the microphone button, I got a different pop-up that didn't block my words as they were spoken, and my words simply transferred directly to the text field in Messages, where I could clearly see them and simply hit "send" when done speaking.
When I use Facebook Messenger and do voice-to-text, I still get the pop up box with the annoying grey "Your audio will be sent......" blocking my words, but when I'm done speaking, at least my words transfer into the empty text box automatically and edit/send as required.
Anyone else having this problem? I'd post the pictures of the pop up windows but I don't see a way to do that with this forum.
Don't add a space after a dot/period17 votes 6 commentaires
Please deactivate automatic spacing after typing a dot, or add an option to NOT insert a space (" ") after typing a dot/period ("."). It is very annoying, as the dot is a common character in any text field or text area (think input fields and text editors, not just web addresses, code editors and alike).
Although this issue has been reported several times, there's still no reaction from SwiftKey/Microsoft for SEVERAL YEARS. Maybe the issue is not tracked anymore as it is associated with a "permanently deleted user".
Automatic dark mode and themes with no key borders2 votes 1 commentaireWith Android 10 and now 11, the we have had automatic dark mode switch off for apps. When do you plan to add auto dark mode for SwiftKey? The ideal would be to allow is to choose the light and dark theme and switch between them automatically. Please also add the option to get rid of key borders in the default theme.
Escritura-1 votes 1 commentaire
No sé si será un error. En versiones anteriores, no sucedió. Cuando uso el teclado Swiftkey para enviar mensajes en Wahtsapp, sucede que envío un emoji y presiono la tecla enviar, regresa al teclado para su escritura. Automáticamente.
En cambio, ahora envío el emoji pero el teclado swiftkey permanece en esa posición. Y tengo que seleccionar el cuadro de diálogo para reescribir (letras). A veces tengo que presionar dos veces.
Antes era un teclado muy fluido que permitia una escritura rápida. Ahora me resulta incómodo cada vez que selecciono el teclado, cada vez que quiero escribir

Themes synced with the Android dark mode2 votes 1 commentaireThe Android 10 have been released since a year and until now the SwiftKey (beta or not) doesn't have a real support to the dark mode. The Gboard and Samsung board, for example, adapts their colours with the system toggle. If the system is write, the keyboard is write, and if the system is dark, the keyboard also is dark. It's very good because I think the main differential of the dark mode is the automatic transmission (at night and in the day). I really hope the SwiftKey bring the dark mode synced with the system soon.
Auto space after comma not working2 votes 13 commentaires

Symbols automatically enter a space?4 votes 2 commentairesEvery time I try to enter symbols after using Flow to create a word, the symbol always automatically puts a space in between it and the word I entered before it with the Flow. For example, when I make typo errors, I like to retext the word (correctly spelled) and put an asterisk directly after it. For example, I try to say "Family*" but when I enter the word "Family" using Flow, and I type an asterisk, it automatically puts a space between the two entrees and types "Family *". This happens to EVERY symbol (asterisks, colons, semi-colons, and more) except quotation marks ("). No matter how I enter it, it will add in a space. It doesn't matter if I long press a letter to enter the symbol or switch to the symbol keyboard to manually enter it - it will always enter a space, and then the symbol. This always only happens after I enter a word with the Flow system (swiping to letters to create a word). It's an extremely tedious and messy mechanic, as I tend to enter many symbols, and yet the keyboard automatically messes up the sentence with an extra space. The only symbol this tends to be useful for is dashes (-) as many times it can be nice to have spaces around the dashes in between words. Thanks for any feedback or any fix!
Dashes, (semi-)colons and associated spaces1 vote 2 commentaires
Three characters that have troublesome auto space insertions are dash, colon, and semicolon. All of these characters, when used correctly in a sentence, should not have spaces before them, but SwiftKey always adds one. I would love to see a setting that allows me to choose either the current functionality or a new setting to not add the leading space.
Android: SwiftKey typing, no output1 vote 4 commentaires
I am getting frequent (multiple times per day) where I am typing on swiftkey and I see the prediction forming, but no output in the actual text field I was typing in. Switching to any other keyboard and changing back (without typing anything in the other keyboard) restores functionality, but it's pretty annoying and it's getting more frequent.

I would love to have bitmoji support baked in as an attachment, the same way gifs are. Snapchat even recognizes if you're talking to a user who has it and puts your bitmojis together.

Auto Inserting Flags1 vote 2 commentaires
I use SwiftKey and SK Neutral on my android. I used to get flags appearing while typing in Twitter using specific codes, ie typing GB would display the UK flag 🇬🇧. This no longer works, any clue if it's a setting that needs tweeked of gas something happened during app updates?
Support for Bitmoji5 votes 2 commentairesIt would be really awesome to have Bitmoji integrated with SwiftKey, that's the one thing that this keyboard is missing, hope that can be looked at & considered for a better customer experience....
Period/Dot auto space/unspace2 votes 3 commentaires
There's a feature that automatically removes the space I inserted and adds a space in front when I use the dot.
I prefer to do it manually and I'm used to it since I like making faces with it like for example ".-."
Now I can't write what I quoted easily because of this useless automatic spacing feature. The results without backspacing everything would be ". -." or in the end of a a sentence "What. -." when what was manually written and what I wanted to write was this: "What .-."
I understand that some people like this feature but I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates it. So what I ask for, is that you add an option to enable or disable this automatic space/unspace feature since I'm forced to having it enabled.
I like this keyboard, it's great and this was the only flaw I found so please consider the solution I gave you.
Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it29 votes 30 commentaires
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....

Make possible manual additions to autocorrect1 vote 1 commentaire
This is a feature request for making possible manual additions to the autocorrect. Regularly, words that i would like to be auto-corrected, are not. I cannot find a setting where i can add those words, together with the word to which i'd like the erroneous word to be autocorrected. This is a common function in desktop text applications.
How to make number row match the rest of the keyboard?0 votes 2 commentairesMy phone theme has been black on black on black on black with a beautiful accent of color of more black since my very first smartphone. Why is there seemingly no control over the color of the number row on this otherwise amazing keyboard? I just upgraded my phone and am trying to go back to using SwiftKey after the last 18 months on my note 9 using gboard because their number row matches. SwiftKey is better there's no doubt about that but this dang gray bar in the middle of my screen makes it unbearable. So much customization except this one simple spot.
Voice Typing0 votes 4 commentairesBack story. For many months I've been using 2 keyboards, gboard for voice typing and SwiftKey for regular typing. I decided to hit the microphone and try using SwiftKey voice to text and it was just like that of gboard! I was ecstatic and then today, all of a sudden it reverted back to the old voice typing with the white box.. Why!? I was so happy with the black box that would type as I was speaking making my life so much easier. I really don't wanna go back to using 2 keyboards, please bring back the voice to text that was just like gboard. It was like having the best of both worlds! SwiftKey blows gboard out of the water but when it comes to voice to text gboard is still better. At least let me have the option to choose which voice to text I wanna use. Please! Example, when I'm in my car I could unlock my phone to my messenger and the voice dictation would automatically start, amazing! I need this back. It was truly amazing but too short lived.
