    Bye bye swiftkey. 3 years since requested to implement such a simple feature is too long. Gboard is the way. And by the way just the fact that you are not giving a reply to your community's questions shows how bad you are as a company.

    I'm sorry, but this is a deal breaker for me too. Clearly, Gboard has caught up and perhaps overtaken Swiftkey...

    In my case I still can't replace SwiftKey. I often went back to gboard but it is too small and word's suggestions are not clever and it is not so customizable... So I keep SwiftKey. I hope they will find a way to move that cursor. Why not 2 arrows on the spacebar sides?

    Any other fellow reverse-engineers in the house?

    Since we can see by now that SwiftKey isn't ever going to add this feature, I think we may be able to roll up our sleeves and forcibly add it ourselves, by injecting it straight into the APK, given the base functions already exist and are in place, e.g.:

    1. Swipe-to->action (gesture) functionality, like the "Delete word" and "To Uppercase" gestures
    2. Functions attached to GUI arrow-buttons for moving the cursor around

    This could be reverse-engineered (possibly even taking no more than a weekend) to "puppet-string" these two already-available functions and combine them with a new gesture(s) over a particular area (the spacebar).

    On a basic bird's eye veiw, it'd require locating SwiftKey's input listener loop that processes X/Y coordinates of where taps are on-screen (and where they're going, if held), and then manually injecting a new designated x-y area of the keyboard -- in this case, that encompasses the spacebar -- that processes swipes that occur on it. That would then trigger a "pulling" (calling) of the "puppet-strings" of the Arrow-button/cursor-move functions.

    We could make this a binary/discrete occurrence, where any length of swipe on the spacebar equates to a single "arrow-press" cursor movement in the same direction. Or, even more optimally, we could process swipes across this x-y spacebar area on a continuous scale, where length and direction of swipe correlate with how many "arrow-press" cursor movements occur and in what direction.

    Any thoughts?

    Found the link to this forum from reddit.

    YES!! I am looking forward to have this feature added soon. However, I am already using the spacebar swipe/slide to change between languages. So maybe long press and slide to change language and slide on spacebar to move cursor and we won't have to sacrifice flow typing.

    On a side note, it's very hard for me to find good Swiftkey theme as well apart from the same few on the theme gallery. Hopefully the support will work on that.
