Swift key spelling is terrible!0 votes 3 commentairesPlease work on getting the spelling to work correctly! 2 very annoying issues that don't happen with the competition. 1. There are many words that don't give a suggestion until you are 95% done typing the word. (like "consistency") 2. Why on earth can't there be structure/consistency for the suggestions? There are times where the incorrect spelling could be on the right, left or middle. Others it's the correct spelling: one word is in the middle, the next it's on the left, etc. This is infuriating and also makes u think you're making a spelling mistake when you're not! Can you not just have correct spelling always on left and suggestions on middle/right?
Disable flow AND gesture.24 votes 28 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!

Don't add a space after a dot/period23 votes 9 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".
Force Dark mode issues4 votes 8 commentairesGreetings, I am having a challenge with the legibility of some of the keys of my keyboard when I put on "force Dark mode" this is the only app that I have a problem with and I pray that you resolve it. The keys are the spacebar, backspace, enter, shift key, left, right and down arrow keys, the search icon in the top bar specifically.

How do I establish choice emoji predictions, and stop the trip-wire emoji "unlearn" from removing my favorite emoji predictions, as it malfunctions blatantly stressing me cruelly as the "yes" or "no" malfunctions and removes emoji anyway!!! HELP!!0 votes 1 commentaireIn the middle of texting happily, while I tap accepting a specific heart, the system "trip wires" and goes spontaneously ahead and asks me if I want to remove the emoji from the learned list, and upon the "yes" and "no" option, doesn't give me the time needed to reply with my choice, and cruelly goes ahead, and before I even know it, it blatantly says :"learned word (or emoji) is now removed from the list", without even giving me the chance to go back!! 😢 😭 and I loose the choice emoji prediction, and no way of re-teaching my choice prediction!!!! Please help me reteach my choice predictions, and stop the very swift "trip wire" removal of my preferred emoji predictions!!! Please note that I have searched and searched and searched, but there are NO tutorials for this problem, and anyway, the trip wiring problem seems to be a UI failure or malfunction making it extremely user-unfriendly for persons with disabilities or if high age. I feel that this is absolutely a malfunction problem that needs software engineers to correct, and a clear cut way to relearn and re-establish the cruelly removed emoji, as the system "trip wires" and in a matter of split seconds takes it for granted that the emoji has to be removed without my permission!!!!!! It doesn't even accept a "no" for an answer, and leaves me without the choice emoji, and NO INDICATED WAY to re-establish the choice emoji. It clearly malfunctions and does not even listen to a "no" for an answer, but just goes ahead and removes the emoji anyway, like a runaway train with no brakes!! Please help me also with the re-learning process so I could quickly re-establish my lost emoji!!! PLEASE HELP!! NO TUTORIALS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ADDRESS THIS MALFUNCTION!! Gbu!!
Use SwiftKey with Teams Android App0 votes 3 commentaires
I have SwiftKey selected as my default keyboard on my android phone. When I go into teams and chat the keyboard is the stock teams keyboard and does not behave like SwiftKey. Is there a way to use SwiftKey while using the teams android app? I can not find the option within the app.
Auto-correct not as good as it used to br0 votes 2 commentairesAuto-correct let's SO MUCH stuff get by it these days... I type quickly and have big fingers, so rely on auto-correct to make that scenario work for me. 'Lately' (months, at least), it hasn't been doing as good of a job as it used to. I'm so frustrated that I'm finally appealing to the dev team. Do you actually read this stuff? Will be shopping for a better solution soon. Been using SwiftKey for many years, but it's not meeting my needs as well as it used to...
Personal Dictionary Not Working12 votes 14 commentaires
I've been using SwiftKey for several years with no issues at all, and have obviously built up quite a large personal dictionary. After factory resetting my Galaxy S8+ on Android 9.0, and re-installing SwiftKey, predictions from my personal dictionary so not come up anymore. I have tried all the steps on the troubleshooting guides on this website and have tried all the steps from other similar posts with no success. Are there any other steps I can try? This app has been so essential to me for many many years now and I can't even imagine losing all of the data that has been built up throughout the years.
parola con apostrofo o troncamento3 votes 15 commentaires
vorrei capire come memorizzare termini. In pratica la tastiera swiftkey non memorizza il termine <po'>, che in italiano è il troncamento di poco ed è un termine molto utilizzato. Nella lingua italiana <po> non esiste. Esiste <Po> maiscolo, cioè il fiume Po.
E' un problema che posso risolvere in autonomia?

How can I edit/remove menu bar2 votes 3 commentairesI've recently updated the app and really dislike the new menu bar. I have zero need to use a language translator or bing. Or a big history of things I've copy and pasted before. It's annoying as I keep catching it when typing. Is there anyway to get rid of these functions? I'd rathe have emicons and gifs as we're there before. I'm on the verge of deleting the app and finding one that isn't full of useless functions.
How do I make my own themed keyboard dark mode?0 votes 1 commentaireI re-downloaded SwiftKey and my keys used to appear darker than my custome wallpaper, now it's lighter like my SwiftKey keyboard changed to light mode?
Deactivate auto spacing after inserting a period ('.')13 votes 16 commentaires
typing web addresses into the address bar of the browser always inserts an auto space after hitting the dot key. Thus I always have to correct by using backspace and type again.
Same problem with other situations, where I do not automatically need an auto space after the dot, e. g., when typing mail addresses.
there a way ariund it and have a setting option, allowing to deactivate auto spaces after a dot?
Support Android 11 Auto-fill API0 votes 24 commentairesWhy doesn't SwiftKey support the new Android 11 Auto-fill APi for passwords?! It's been almost 1 year since Google announced the feature. Gboard supports it.
SwiftKey default dictionary is extremely poor [Polish]3 votes 6 commentaires
In general I find SwiftKey one of the best tools ever for an Android phone. But the weakest link of it is... the dictionary. Sometimes it takes me much more time for me to use SwitftKey than to type words manually.
The Polish dictionary is soooo poooor, that it makes it sometimes next to impossible to type fluently. I am under impression that more word variations are missing than present.
How can I connect to something more robust? It does not have to be free as I am desperate.
I can barely remember such issues with Gboard where 95% of words could be found just like this! in SwiftKey - 50-60% perhaps.

Why is Swiftkey so much worse on iOS compared to Android16 votes 15 commentaires
I've been using Swiftkey on Android since they days when you had to pay for it. Recently my job forced me to switch over to an iphone. The difference between the 2 versions is tremendous. Autocorrect works a lot more poorly but the main gripe I have is that you can't hold down a letter key to get every accent mark associated with it. Is there a reason for this? I continue to still use swiftkey since I'm used to the punctuation placement, but just seems weird that it works so poorly in iOS
Suggestions for toggle options0 votes 1 commentaireI have skme gripes that my only option to produce these results is to switch to a different keyboard. Here are some options that should be added: When you select a period "." to enter in a decimal number it wont auto snap to the previous word. Example: I made. 54% progress instead of. 9% Another suggestion is to remove certain saved words. I don't need the app auto correcting my correct words to a spelling error I made way too many time. Example, 8n instead of in. Another suggestion, remove the deleting of spaces at the end of the sentence after pressing the return key. In certain apps like reddit if you press the return key to go to a new line it will delete an extra space at the end of the previous line. This causes issues when an app determines a new line based on whether or not there is a space at the end of the last word. Because all are removed, it will be seen as not putting a space or an end line and it will just concat the first word of the next paragraph to the previous word. This may be app specific since it only applies when new line using the return key is not seen as a character. But removing a ton of spaces requires me to mash the space bar 3 or 4 times to make sure there are spaces at the end.

swiftkey is actually deleting spaces after I manually add them?-1 votes 5 commentaires
Recently Swiftkey has started behaving strangely. At first I thought it was just a case of 'auto space' being turned off somehow (although I didn't do that) - but then (after totally failing to find any way to turn auto space on or off - despite following multiple online instructions) I realised it's worse than that.
When I type or flow several words, swiftkey will randomly remove the spaces between them - even if I manually typed those spaces!? Not always, but often enough that I look like a barely literate typer - and this makes the tool completely unusable. I've had to go back to the - totally unintuitive - iOS keyboard.
Can someone please tell me what's going on, and - more importantly - how to get back to the usual Swiftkey operation that I have come to depend on?
"shift keys" / special keys won't show2 votes 4 commentaires
So I got a new phone, the Xperia XZ3, and I'm trying to make the keyboard show all the special keys, but can't find the setting for it. On my last phone, the XZ, it showed those characters as standard, being greyed out on top of the main keys. They still work tho, if I long press M I get / but it's absurd to have to memorize all of them. Any1 know how to make them appear? Thanks
Please include your own system-wide spell-checker (red underline) with the app.2 votes 2 commentaires
First, I will clarify some things for those who may not know and for those who might assume that I am confusing spell-checker with keyboard input prediction.
Then I will:
Bring back a problem that has been called for attention many times and explain why it happens;
Explain why I think it matters and why previous suggested workarounds are sub-optimal;
Discuss Google’s (Gboard) chosen workaround;
Give my suggestion to fix the problem.
Input prediction (IP) (Auto-complete and auto-correction) is a feature whose main purpose in software keyboards is to allow the user to type faster. The keyboard suggests words before you type them entirely and correct words where there are typos. By auto-correcting, the keyboard allows the user to type without painstaking care and precision, which allows for faster typing.
Spell-checking (SC) is (usually) a feature of word processors or system-wide input fields (MS Word, Android, and Google Chrome for desktop, each has its own spell-checker independent from software keyboards or any input method). Its main purpose is to alert and correct the user about the orthography of a given language.
People who use simultaneous multi-language input prediction – a feature present on SwiftKey (and Gboard also) – start seeing a red underling in all words of one of the languages.
The reason is that, while SwiftKey’s input prediction does have support for multiple languages simultaneously, the android’s system-wide spell-checker active in the user’s phone (usually AOSP’s or Google’s spell-checker) does not have.
Here it has been suggested that the user should disable the spell checker:
Notably, this is also the approach used by Gboard (more on that latter), but I think this is far from the ideal because it forces the user to resort to input prediction (IP) as a form of spell-checking (SC). This is a problem because, as I said in the beginning, input-prediction is a feature focused on fast typing (as it should be) and not on orthography. To illustrate, imagine how a user uses IP as SC:
The user types the word and hopes that the keyboard will correct it automatically if it’s wrong. Except that, even when typing correctly, sometimes the first prediction (the middle one in SwiftKey) is not the desired one. And other times the prediction dictionary doesn’t have the desired word. For those reasons, the exact typed word is always shown as an option, typos and all (as it should be), and the keyboard memorizes anything the user decides to input (as it should be) either by typing space and accepting the middle prediction, or by selecting the desired word in the list.
The result is that the IP learns a lot of slangs, acronyms and jargon (as is should be), but also learns misspelled words. And the user has no way of knowing if the thing he/her has typed didn’t appear as the first (middle) prediction because it was wrong or because the neural network crystal ball simply got it wrong or because the word doesn’t exist in the IP dictionary. Also, sometimes the misspelling is so different from the intended word that the latter doesn’t appear in the prediction list, and sometimes the misspelling is even presented as the first (middle) prediction.
The clear solution to that in my opinion is to have a separate mechanism for checking orthography, the spell-checker, which has to support simultaneously multi-language input as well (chrome desktop browser has that). This is a second independent layer that runs after input prediction, and is not affected by the IP dictionary. And when the user decides to tap a word and include it in the SC dictionary it is a conscious deliberate decision.
How does Gboard deal with that
Here it has been said that SwiftKey cannot control the spellchecker, and that Gboard doesn’t break in the same way because it has “advanced system privileges that SwiftKey cannot access”. I’m not an android programmer, but from the tests I have done, it seems to me that Gboard has the exact same level of system access that SwiftKey has with respect to spell-checking:
If my selected system-wide spell-checker is the AOSP one, it behaves in the exact same way with Gboard as it does with SwiftKey. The thing that Gboard does different is that, along with the keyboard, the app installs a spell-checking service as well. I’m using LineageOS, which doesn’t come with Gboard or Google’s spell-checker, only the AOSP ones. And when I install Gboard, Google’s SC appears as an option.
Now, Google’s solution is far from the best in my opinion. For what I tested, the ‘Google spell-checker’ (installed by Gboard) simply disables itself if it detects that Gboard is being used and uses only the system’s language when it detects other 3rd party keyboards (exactly like the AOSP one). And I already explained my problems with both solutions.
Simply put together a simple spell-checker with simultaneous multi-language support and ship it within the SwiftKey app. I think this would be simple to do, just copy the default dictionaries of the SwiftKey IP as a starting point, but it would not have to deal with predictions and other complex features that a software keyboard has to deal with. Again, copy the dictionaries, any word learned by the IP should not be automatically learned by the SC.
The simplest implementation would be to have one hash table for each language. If the user decides to use two languages simultaneously, a new empty language-agnostic hash table is created. That way, when the user includes a new word to de dictionary, it is included in the language-agnostic one to avoid guessing the language of the word. Then, spell-checking a word is simply to query the word on 3 hash tables.
Why am I suggesting this to you?
Here it has been said that SC “was never a feature of SwiftKey itself”, and that it’s an Android problem.
Indeed, if only AOSP’s SC did support multiple languages simultaneously, this problem would be solved. But I use and prefer SwiftKey; AOSP’s keyboard still doesn’t have support for simultaneous multi-language input, suggesting that this support is also not in the horizon for AOSP spell-checker; and it’s more probable that Google’s engineers will fix this only in Google’s SC, in a way that works exclusively with Gboard (as it’s the case with the ‘auto-disable SC’ workaround).
And ultimately this is a problem that (to me at least) seems extremely simple to solve and is hurting your product.
Here are some treads complaining of SC-related problems that, while not necessarily being all related to multi-language support, could benefit from a simple Spell Checker shipped inside the SwiftKey app.
I’m conscious that I might be wrong about a number of things: There could be another workaround that solves the problem in a satisfactory way; There could be a barrier to install system-wide spell-checkers on android; Maybe spell-checking is harder than I think, even without grammar-checking or prediction; etc.
In that case it would be nice if someone could explain the situation in a more in-depth way.
