Light and dark theme?0 votes 0 commentairesCould you implement a feature or a theme where it automatically switches to a light colored keyboard throughout the day and a dark colored one when it gets dark? Right now I'm using a white keyboard and when it's night I get blinded by the light. I really don't like to switching themes every day.
Did anyone lose 6 or more years of their predictive dictionary?1 vote 1 commentaire
So recently there was a thread addressed the sync issue and FINALLY someone addresses it...
But bluntly put, that didn't really answer anything... if anything, that raises even more concerns. Dashkorosh noted that he had 14k words but suddenly it went down to 1.3k words!
Then other people started to check their predictive dictionary and said their words were gone as well.... then I checked my predictive dictionary on my account and mine were gone too!
You can go here to check: https://data.swiftkey.com/
I exported my dictionary but ended up deleting it because it's useless (more on that later) but I can easily tell that I lost most of my words... because when I checked my predictive dictionary a month or so ago, I was scrolling down my predictive dictionary and almost never ending... like, I didn't know if I was ever going to hit the bottom of my list because it had THAT many years of words predicted for me... and now it's all gone :(
Looking back, I wish I kept my exported dictionary... but it wasn't like you can do anything with it. There's no option to reupload the exported file it to your Swiftkey account because there's no import button on the website... so what's the point of having an export option??
So as the thread title implies, have you checked to see if you lost your predictive dictionary? I mean, it seems sync is working now as I just uninstalled and reinstalled Swiftkey to see if it remembers stuff... but I don't think losing 6+ years of my predictive dictionary was worth it....
SwiftKey Japanese0 votes 0 commentairesIs there a way to create a personalized list of Kanji? I have this issue were someone's name does not use the standard Kanji pronunciation but more obscure ones and would be lovely if I could set it up. (For instance 芬 as かおり)
Floating thumb/split layout1 vote 0 commentaires
On older versions I could use a floating thumb layout. That was great on tables in landscape orientation.
How can I enable that mode or did that feature disappear?
Android 10 Emoji Added1 vote 4 commentaires
I know that Swiftkey is supposed to support the OS level emoji automatically but when I upgraded to Android 10, none of the new Unicode 12 emoji are shown. These show up on Gboard. Any plan to add the new emoji?
Autocorrect can't recognize any Russian words0 votes 0 commentairesAfter the last update I noticed that in any text field or input whenever I use Russian the word (even in your app) get a red squiggly line with options to add to dictionary or delete. The word suggestion/competition works fine. English, Estonian and German are working also fine. Device language is English US.

Cannot see long-press characters before pressing1 vote 2 commentaires
On keyboard, second set of keys are not displayed (above regular characters). Long-pressing the key still works normally, but I have to guess (what key, when long-pressed, will produce dash?) or use number/symbol keyboard instead. Weirdly, when i switch to incognito mode, I can see them.
So how do I make long-press options visible before pressing without entering incognito mode?

Japanese prediction works bad in romaji layout0 votes 0 commentaires
hey! I met a weird problem with Japanese input as described below.
- Sony xz
- Android 8.0
- 18.104.22.168/ Beta22.214.171.124
- Steps to reproduce : I use En/Jp/Cn. if typing Japanese with hiraagara layout, everything works well. But prediction works really bad if I switch to romaji layout.
- I upload a video showing I want to type the word 中国(china). Prediction looks well ,showed many works in advance before I typed competely with hiragara layout, but romaji layout didnt give me the answer even I typed completely.

[Known Issue]Delete gesture fails constantly on Pixel 41 vote 1 commentaireThe swipe backwards delete gesture seems to be significantly less sensitive on the Pixel 4 (XL if that matters). It is much harder to get the delete gesture to work than on my other phone (OnePlus 5). It would be great if there were a way to set the sensitivity of the gesture.
[THEME] Nickel Light broken after accessibility update2 votes 3 commentairesIn the latest update of SwiftKey Beta the background for emojies in the Nickel Light theme has gone from white (good) to grey (bad). If the goal was to increase the accessibility you failed pretty hard. It way harder to see now and looks really bad. Please fix this.
Swiftkey should not treat all words as Vietnamese when on its input method (TELEX)2 votes 0 commentaires
I'm using Swiftkey's Vietnamese Telex input, there is a bit confused when typing English on it.
It treats all my word as vietnamese, so there are problems with it, for example
I must type WORRD to be correct as WORD, but WO is not a Vietnamese word, why do Swiftkey add the ? on top of O when i type R (WỎ), this is a waste of time.
Type GOOGLE.C and then O will make the word become GÔGLE.CO, what? there is not way to discard the Ô if i type O again
COORDINATE, if i remove letter by letter from the right to COOR, when remove R, it become CỎO, what again?
Errant placement of words in text0 votes 0 commentairesI'm entering text at the bottom of my entry and the cursor jumps to somewhere else on the page. There is no set pattern for this, it just migrates to wherever. An example is that it just tried to insert the second part of the word "wherever" ie.: ever up between the words "no" and "set" in the line above. I've got android on my phone and it just started filling this a month or two ago. This happens constantly. I did a factory reset 2 days ago. It did it before and afterward with equal vengeance. I'm getting tired of it, but I truly love my SwiftKey! Any idea?
Can not choose SwiftKey in Office applications Android0 votes 3 commentairesLately my Office applications (Teams, Outlook etc) only shows up with Gboard keyboard although I have SwiftKey working fine with all other apps Even if I disable Gboard globally in my device Gboard is still the only keyboard showing up in the MS Teams and Outlook Android apps
Symbols in predictions1 vote 1 commentaire
Hi, it's been a while since my SwiftKey has stopped predicting the correct form of " un po' " (Italian, it means "a little bit"), it just predicts " un po ". As you can see the apostrophe went missing and it's actually a grammar error in my language, because " po' " is short for "poco" and if you shorten a word the apostrophe is mandatory (also because "Po" is the longest river in Italy but that's another story).
I tried deleting "po" (without the apostrophe) from the prediction bar, deleting and reinstalling the app, I've even tried running it on different devices but the issue seems to be account-wide.
Can anyone help me please? :)

Clipboard paste & go0 votes 1 commentaire
Hi there, OK this isn't really a problem more of a suggestion
Anyhow, i love that I'm able to open the clipboard & paste previously pinned items.
One thing I keep thinking of every time I've used the clipboard in the last yr is.. I wish there was a 'enter' or 'go' or something like that without having to go back to keyboard. Some websites are smart enough but most require users to hit "go" before executing whatever is keyed in or in this case pasted in.
Hoping this is maybe something you can add to your improvements/change log?

Problem SYNC "solved"2 votes 13 commentaires
"Unfortunelly" i've found "the problem"...
Google is blocking the comunication between Swiftkey and Gmail, because Microsoft don't agree yet with the new Google privacy politcs...
So, I created a new account, but not Google Account.. I created a new Microsoft Account and the sync is working on my device... BUT.. i've lost all my words that was in google account...
I have a sugestion: the Microsoft Swiftkey could create the function "IMPORT" words... The function "export words" is working. I did the download and it's all ok... So, if microsoft create this function, all the problem will be solved...
OOORRR... ACCEPT THE POLITCS OF GOOGLE, MICROSOFT!

Alas, poor bullet points... I knew thee well.0 votes 0 commentairesEver since I've switched to a Huawei Y6 2018, I've been making use of Swift Keyboard as it's the pre-installed (default) keyboard. I was a Google Keyboard user for some time; however, I've experienced perfornance issues on this device, so I've had to adjust to using Swift Keyboard and it hasn't been too bad. One feature of Google Keyboard I enjoyed is the bullet points symbols I can enter when typing out such lists, which I can't seem to find on Swift Keyboard despite my best efforts. Can anyone point me to where I can find or enter the bullet points directly from the keyboard? Thanks in advance!
