[Main Thread] Can't sync data [Fixed] Terminée4 votes 46 commentaires
I just bought a Huawei P10 and SwiftKey won't sync my account data. I've signed in, but it says last sync was "not synced" and if I hit the sync now button there is nothing that happens.
Any ideas? I can't even uninstall because apparently the keyboard is baked in to the os
PLEASE give us the option to remove the search bar from the tool bar! Terminée1 vote 3 commentaires
Why isn't this optional like everything else on the toolbar?
It takes up 1/3rd of the tool bar on my screen and has made the toolbar useless to me as I pretty much just have a giant search box tied to a search engine that I would never use.
PLEASE make it optional. Your app was once the most customisable keyboard out there, but now you are forcing Bing onto everyone who uses it. That's not only biased towards Bing, but it's also completely against your brand image to force something onto the keyboard without being able to turn it off.
- What about the people who do like it but actually prefer to use other search engines and are now stuck with Bing?
- Why are you being biased towards Bing? Windows was forced through a lawsuit to offer their users other search engines during setup of their internet browser as it was found to be unfair to the competition - isn't this exactly what you are doing?
- Why add a search bar to the keyboard when there is one on the android homepage, at the top of every browser and on most quick access tool bars on phones, tablets and PC's - think Cortana for example?
- What about the fact that most people just use voice commands on their phones to search?
- What about older people like myself who have really tiny phones?
- What about people who don't want to have a search bar?
- What about the lack of customisation that you've left your users with that was once your claim to fame?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there, why can't you make it a button like everything else?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there, why can't you make it smaller?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there and you're unwilling to make it a button, why not at the very least make it shorter - then it could expand when you use the search box for you to type in rather than it taking up so much precious screen room.
- Why not keep with your brand image and make it customisable like everything else?
- Why not listen to your users before they switch to a different keyboard? There are countless other great keyboards these days that offer almost identical services, and most of your users probably don't even utilise the full extent of your app anyway.
Please do the sensible thing and make it removable. I don't want it, and clearly a lot of other people don't either as there are even articles on various websites about it...
- What about the people who do like it but actually prefer to use other search engines and are now stuck with Bing?

White Navigation Bar with Dark Theme Terminée18 votes 26 commentaires
Hi. After my unit was updated to Android P, when Swift keyboard is activated, the navigation bar (bottom) turns white, despite having the dark theme setted in Android. This doesn't happen with Gboard. I didn't have this issue with android 8. Am I missing a particular setting?

[Completed in 188.8.131.52] Employ 4-side adjustable margin to control keyboard size Terminée2 votes 6 commentaires
The use of keyboard margins will become more crucial to keyboard ergonomics with the current advent of diminishing bezels on the latest Android smartphones. This will have two major repercussions:
1: smaller bottom bezel will drop keyboard below comfortable position since hands still need to hold devices nearer towards middle
2: slimmer side bezels will mean fingers need to reach further towards palms to reach the furthest keys
The use of 4 adjustable margins is being proposed to replace the current system of fixed keyboard sizing. Adjustable margins would also tackle keyboard ergonomics on bezel diminished devices as it would allow users to size and place keyboard into a comfortable position. With bezels now shrinking on many new devices, there now needs to be a large bottom margin underneath the bottom row, and left and right right margins would keep thumbs nearer to the centre of the keyboard, where thumbs can reach with less strain. Adding the top adjustable margin would allow for key size adjustability to suit the varying finger lengths of users.
For an example of a 4 margin keyboard, please see the current Samsung keyboard for its S series devices. The Apple iPhone X also demonstrates the need for a large bottom margin for phones with little bottom bezel.
Thanks. I know you guys get quite a lot of flak on these forums, but it's clear you are endeavoring to deliver the best product you can deliver. Your efforts are at least appreciated by this user.

All of a sudden,after years of faithful service, SwiftKey has suddenly crapped out on me.

There are other problems but they're too frustrating to investigate with the keyboard so broken.
Has there been a recent update that has done this?
Thanks for any help
[Main Thread] Keyboard Letters Uneven [Known Issue] Terminée7 votes 13 commentaires
I've used SwiftKey for years, but suddenly the keys are no longer in straight lines, but appear to be slightly raised or lowered, I assume that's where I usually hit the keys but it doesn't usually show that on my screen and I wish it wouldn't, it's very disconcerting. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't see a setting anywhere to turn it off, or understand why it happened in the first place. Unsure how to attach an image to this.
No special symbols displayed over the letters in incognito mode theme. Terminée7 votes 7 commentaires
In new incognito mode there are is a problem with the theme- no special symbols are displayed over the letters ('(' over the letter 'k', ')' over the letter 'l' etc.). In all the other themes symbols are displayed correctly, but in incognito mode they are missing.
It is problematic because You would need to remember where the special characters are located on the keyboard to use them efficiently. Please either add an ability to modify the theme of the incognito mode, or add the symbols to the theme.
[Fixed in beta] Constant crashing when using non-default theme on Samsung Oreo Beta Terminée0 votes 7 commentaires
On the Samsung Oreo beta if you have any theme other than the 3 default themes the keyboard crashes constantly anytime it tries to appear.
- Device make and model - Samsung Galaxy S8
- Device Android version - Android 8.0 Oreo
- Current SwiftKey version - Swiftkey Beta 184.108.40.206
- Steps to reproduce - Open themes, select any theme that is not default, crashes start immediately. If you open the app and switch back to a default theme the crashes stop.
- Any screen shots that help show the issue - no screen shots but I submitted feedback through the app
[Suggestion] Adjust the color of the navbar based on the theme. Terminée0 votes 4 commentaires
I really love SwiftKey and would like to continue using it, but there I have a big problem! Whenever I have the keyboard open the navbar on man Huawei mate 20 pro is white, regardless of the theme on my SwiftKey. I usually like to use dark keyboards, which looks horrible with a white navbar below.
I have tried third party navbar apps to fix the problem, but they are usually really buggy. I know that Gboard (which I don't want to use but light have to) adjust the color of the navbar based on the color of the keyboard theme, so it should be possible to fix?
