I keep giving swiftkey a try and then find out these very basic and useful features are still not included and I end up uninstalling every time. Going back to old swype keyboard, which is even today better than swiftkey.
Suggestions (have been made so many time by so many people):
1) Select a word: When you have a cursor on a word (anywhere, start, middle or end of the word) and you press the swype key in swype keyboard, it selects the word. Can we have it in swiftkey?
2) Select all: Swipe from swype key to A, selects all. Very surprised many keyboard don't offer this. This is so useful.
3) Copy: like ctrl+c, swipe from swype key to C.
4) Paste: like ctrl+v, swipe from swype key to V.
Basically these 4 and many other things could be accomplished by simply swiping from swype key to some particular alphabet. Why is it so hard to include these such useful features, esp. after they been requested so many times over the years. I still see this same request made 2 years back and yet no result. What a shame. And I know the new update just launched a toolbar with clipboard in there. That's just a very bad and incomplete execution of these features and don't compare at all.
Time to uninstall and go back to swype keyboard. Will check in again after few months, hopefully with these changes.
