    Thanks for the suggestion, Peter! I personally don't use the dedicated arrow keys, but can understand how this can be frustrating (especially when they're crammed in between the spacebar and on-screen navigation buttons). I'll mention this to the team to see what they can come up with; but in the meantime, could I have you submit a Feature Request Ticket to further the idea to them? Hopefully we'll be able to implement something to make this a little better to use.

    Hi, I too would appreciate having the arrow bar on top. Was a formal feature request opened for this? Thanks.

    I would also like to request that feature. I really like the arrow keys, but currently I have them disabled for the same reasons as stated in the first post.

    YES PLEASE, arrow keys save so much time... but right now they waste time because I accidentally press them when aiming for the space bar (to auto-complete words, which is the whole point of SwiftKey) and so end up writing the next word INSIDE the previous one, and having to restart from scratch.

    I have many friends who unfortunately stopped using SwiftKey altogether because of this. I myself am on the fence...

    Yes please! Would love the arrows out of the way of the space bar!

    A temporal solution is to use:

    If you are using the 'thumb' layout, they will appear in the middle of your keyboard:

    Is there a way to access the arrow keys without enabling them full-time? Would be nice if there was a way to pop them up for temporary usage and then get rid of them when you're done. Not sure how you'd implement this given how packed the keyboard already is with features!

    They should be across the top above the numbers. That way they are there when I need them but out of the way the rest of the time.

    Surely it can't be too hard to have an option to have arrow keys above the number line? You must now have billions of saved examples from users hitting back arrow instead of space bar...

    Seriously though, Paul.. At this point, I'm pretty sure they have billions of saved examples from just me.. When I first started using SwiftKey way back on my note 4, I feel like the arrows were above the numbers at the top like we all want.. PLEASE make this an option asap. Hitting the left arrow instead of the space bar is obviously a known issue that's not new and is EXTREMELY frustrating. So much so that I'm considering finding a new keyboard for the first time in like 5 years 😣

    Also, the arrow keys used to be available when selecting emoji's, but now they disappear when you open that screen.. What happened to that?! Can we bring that back as well? Even if it's just an optional setting, it was something that had purpose for at least some of your users

    I would also like to see this feature request.  I lose all the productivity gains by accidentally hitting the left arrow when hitting the space bar which causes the cursor to move back a letter and then the typing begins in the middle of the previous word.  I would recommend having the option, top, bottom, left, right or middle.

    After I left comments in Google Play Store, They suggested submitting a support request. 

    SwiftKey Keyboard
    Your rating:★★★★★
     It is not bad overall, but there is just one thing really annoying and made me abandoned it - - The arrow key cannot set to be on the top of the keyboard. It is really easy to mistakenly press arrow keys when entering spaces. An alternative is to use thumb layout but again, it makes all keys too narrow and too easy to mistype. I will change to five stars if arrow keys could be set on the top of keyboard.
    Developer response:
    Hi Li. We'd love to share your ideas with the right team, do you mind sharing them here http://swft.ky/supportrequest so we can make that happen? Thanks!

    The following is intended. I started looking for a keyboard agaiand and gboarand swiftkeyd contend. Because of the arrow feature I really like swiftkey but as you can see above it looks really bad as the arrows get to be pressed being at the bottom. This is a serious location issue especially when at times you are just feeling the location of the buttons and cannot really look closely when typing or you simply got fat fingers. The bottom border of the phone or the bottom of keyboard layout is a standard and universal reference and is best no t changed as a reference point. The space bar is like a Home key at the center bottom of the keyboard an d locations of the other letters are referred to it. This composition is a result of the arrow keys being at the bottom. This is how bad and ugly if unedited. I hope there is an option to relocate them. I Love SwiftKey. Thanks.

    Yes, please give an option for arrow keys at top! Like others, I'm sacrificing the productivity SwiftKey otherwise provides by hitting the back arrow instead of spacebar and having to correct.

    2 years on and this still hasn't been made an option..... I love SwiftKey and have been using it from the very first instance but this has become such a massive problem for me..... It never used to be, but is now terrible and must be due to having a different sized phone..... It happens all the time and is infuriating....... Surely it can't be that hard to have it implemented..... If not then I probably won't have a choice but to use another keyboard..... Its now that bad a problem. Please sort it out....... As this forum shows its a common request
