Keyboard not functioning on sites added to homescreen1 voto 16 commenti
I use Swiftkey for several years now and am very pleased with it.
I have created several small websites for personal use. Some of them require input in text or number fields. When viewing the sites in Safari the Swiftkey keyboard works perfectly. But when the same site is added to the home screen it doesn't always work.
Any ideas where the problem could be?
Keyboard crashing (?!) Con risposta0 voti 16 commenti
I'm using ResurrectionRemix rom (5.8.5, based on Nougat 7.1.2) on OnePlus3.
After one of the latest updates the keyboard is constantly, not sure... crashing (my guess). There is no error but it frequently disappears while typing. I'm not hitting 'back' button and I'm 100% sure of this.
Input lag on Pixel 2 XL (Oreo 8.1)2 voti 16 commenti
I have just bought a Pixel 2 XL a week ago coming from OnePlus 5 running Nougat 7.1.1, and ever since I have installed SwiftKey I notice input lag very often when I'm typing. It will go away for a short while then come back when I'm typing. It's very sporadic and unpredictable. I'll be typing normally and there will be no lag whatsoever, but suddenly as I type there will be a slight pause and lag before the word is completed.
On my OnePlus 5 I had no such issues and suddenly it's getting very irritating on my Pixel 2 XL which is supposed to have the best software experience of any Android device. So I'm not sure why it's happening.
I have tried clearing SwiftKey app cache and it doesn't seem to help. Has the app not been optimised for 8.1 yet? I have been using SwiftKey for at least 7 years now and not had this particular issue in input lag.
[Fixed in beta] Swiftkey won't change to my preferred theme on Oreo beta Pianificato0 voti 16 commenti
When I select Minimal Dark Blue which is already downloaded, it goes off to download it again and crashes when I select it.It's the best keyboard software out there and hope that Android 8.0 support will be improved in the near future.

I would like to know if it is possible to see my personal dictionary. I want to see all the learned words so that I can delete the ones that don't want. Thank you
Add a delete key (delete to the right)6 voti 16 commenti
Would love the option to include a delete key on top of the present backspace key. A lot of efficiency gains could be had by allowing me to delete rather than having to tap and move precisely in order to use the backspace key.
Tldr: have the keys that allow me to delete going right or left.

Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.
Make it easy for me to add.
One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.

Keyboard doesn't pop up sometimes on iMessage0 voti 16 commenti
I saw a topic where they talk about it but the last post was from 2014 and I didn't see a solution.
Has the issue been resolved?
It's when the keyboard sometimes fails to pop up when switching to iMessage. Currently iMessage has to be quit and re-launched for the keyboard to pop up.
Voice typing problems with latest beta20 voti 15 commentiThere's a new beta to the SwiftKey keyboard and they really messed up the voice typing functionality. The second you take a breath the recording of your voice and therefore the dictation stops. So when you're writing something you're constantly hitting the dictation button. We need to be able to set the length of delay before dictation stops or override whatever is making things stop.

Swiftkey has failed to sync my saved words6 voti 15 commenti

Is there any hard way to move my data to my new phone, my old phone has words which are saved for a period of three years.
Multiple languages - keyboard doesn't switch Con risposta1 voto 15 commenti
I thought I'd chime in here before I let SwiftKey go for a while. I've been a very happy user on Android since the beta days, and always loved the concept. I switched to iOS partly because swiftkey was available, but it has always been a struggle on iOS.
I write different languages (Norwegian and English), but mostly type in English when on the phone. The Norwegian QWERTY-keyboard has additional characters (å, æ, ø) which are used fairly often, but SwiftKey won't let me set this keyboard as standard. If I add English language the English keyboard is set as default, and the mechanism for switching keyboards is broken, and has been for a very long time.
Have a look at what happens when long-pressing the space button:
This results in me having to uncheck English in the app, and having to open the app > check English every time I want to switch between the languages, a very cumbersome process.
I've tried pretty much everything to fix this:
- Reinstalled SwiftKey
- Restart phone (iPhone 7, but was apparent on iPhone 6 also)
- Factory reset phone
- Link/unlink from sync servers
No matter what I do, this is the result always, and I'm very fed up. Please fix this!
Turn off auto - cursor move Con risposta13 voti 15 commenti
The feature that I find the most annoying, and would like the option to turn off, is the auto move of the cursor to the end of the word. When I want to insert/correct a character, I press on the location within the word, and the cursor moves to the end of the word! I have all the arrow keys displayed at the bottom of the keyboard, so pressing on the location & adjusting with the arrow keys is super fast. Except the cursor jumps to the end of the word! I think this feature was added a couple of years ago. It still gets in the way. I haven't found a fast workaround, so an option to turn it off would be much appreciated.
Why does SwiftKey Cloud want to Read, Send, Delete my Email? Con risposta5 voti 15 commenti
I want to connect my SwiftKey account with my Google account, but SwiftKey is asking permission to "Read, send, delete, and manage your email." I understand that SwiftKey needs to see what I'm typing in Gmail to analyze my typing patterns, but why does SwiftKey need to "View, manage, and permanently delete your mail in Gmail"?

Unable to sync from old phone to new Con risposta3 voti 15 commenti
I've been trying to save all my swiftkey data from my old S6 to new S8 and it logs into my google account without any issues, it says it is syncing, but the data does not transfer from my old phone to the new one.
I've got quite a lot of swiftkey data from maybe 2 years of useage, so I'd like to sync it if possible. Can this be done? I followed your guide below, but this does not work for me, the new phone still has no predicted words, no words completed, no words flowed etc after syncing.
My google account is set to sync app data if that makes a difference?
Can anyone guide me in the right direction please?
[Feature Request] Switch to incognito automatically10 voti 15 commenti
Can I make swiftkey switch automatically to incognito mode whenever I open specific apps or windows? Such as incognito tabs in Chrome and Firefox.
Otherwise, is there a (non root) 3rd party app that can do it?
My keyboard is showing bottom navigation buttons bellow keyboard Con risposta2 voti 15 commenti
Hello. I have the new Moto g5 plus which in the digital sensor has the feature to navigate thru left and right swipes on the sensor so i don't need to use the android on-screen buttom to return or anything else. The buttons doesnt even show on screen. But when i use the swiftkey or other keyboard, it creates the bottom buttons making my screen lose some space. How can i use this keyboard without the buttons just like my Samsung note?
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout9 voti 15 commenti
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
Custom abbreviations for expansion Con risposta4 voti 15 commenti
Is there any way, like on the default iOS keyboard, to add a word, say "yt", which would automatically expand to YouTube?
Red-underlined text2 voti 15 commenti
I installed SwitKey on my iPhone 7. I have set Italian as default language and I use two languages on my keyboard, that is Italian and English. In fact, on SwiftKey keyboard space bar I can see IT-EN.
Howeve, if I type by using that keyboard, in any foeld (writing an SMS or an iMessage, filling a field in a web form, creating a note, posting on Facebook), the text is ALWAYS underlined by red, as the words would not be recognized by proofer.
Zwischen Swiftkey und Gboard switchen Con risposta0 voti 14 commenti
wie kann ich zwischen den Tastaturen switchen? Wenn ich bauf Gboard bin kann ich ohne probleme auf Swiftkey wechseln, aber von der Swiftkey Tastatur kann ich auf keine andere Tastatur direkt wechseln. HIer muss ich immer über die Handy Einstellungen gehen. Das ist sehr mühsam.
how can I switch between the keyboards? When I'm on Gboard I can switch to Swiftkey without any problems, but I cannot switch directly to any other keyboard from the Swiftkey keyboard. Here I always have to go through the cell phone settings. It is very troublesome.
Wierd typo in Gpay Con risposta0 voti 14 commentiI have been using SwiftKey keyboard for a long time but recently I have encountered a wierd error in SwiftKey keyboard while trying to make payments using Gpay. It keeps inputting random numbers when I try to enter any amount... Very difficult to correct it too.
Symbol entry adds spaces wrongly Con risposta0 voti 14 commentiThere is ZERO reason for a space to be inserted before a colon. Maybe some symbols are ok with an inserted space but never that one. I spend a lot of effort removing spaces added before dashes as well. This has been a problem for YEARS and I would like an explanation as to why you would insert spaces that have to be removed and why you haven't corrected this. I assure you, there is no justification for this keyboard behavior -- it would be much better for users to have to enter the spaces they want before symbols than to remove the ones they don't -- so please make a fix.

[Reported] SwiftKey Keyboard and Pixel 4 swipe to erase issues Pianificato4 voti 14 commenti
I love SwiftKey and I always disable Flow because I use the swipe right to left gesture to erase the last word, but on the Pixel 4 it's horribly broken and doesn't erase 90% of the time. Extremely frustrating.
Please fix it.
Reset phone, no personal words restored6 voti 14 commenti
I have been using sk since 2013 and have brought my predictions into new phones 2-3 times so I know my account has info. But when I restored this time I got none of my words that had been in my personal dictionary.
What do I need to do to get my predictions back?
