Is there a way to bring up handwriting to text with SwiftKey? I feel like I've seen it before but now that I'm looking for it I can't seem to find it.

After iOS 11 update yesterday, even though I have SwiftKey set as the top keyboard, with Swiftmoji then the iPhone keyboard at the bottom, it's started opening the iPhone keyboard each time i open any app to type in. It does switch OK to SwiftKey and I can use it as normal then.
Soon after the update it wouldn't keep on SwiftKey at all, just immediately switched to the iPhone keyboard, but that seems better now.
[Feature Request] Ability to change font size and markup text7 voti 22 commenti
At times there's need for changing font size or face (bold or italics etc) but I couldn't find a way to do it. Is it possible to do it?
Multiple Language Priority Con risposta7 voti 26 commenti
I use a few different languages with SwiftKey and it works great, but I use English the most. But ever since I added the other languages I communicate in, SwiftKey seems to be suggesting foreign words over common words in English. Like "N°" instead of "No" and "Só" instead of "So".
Is there a way to hint to SwiftKey to prioritize English words so I stop sending "N°, I don't want to go to that restaurant" to my friends?
Auto-capitalization of "I"7 voti 2 commenti
I'd like the uppercase "I" to stop being predicted. I've removed it a bunch of times but it still brings it up. I just want to use lowercase "i" from now on. Is the only way to do this to continue to manually correct it on the prediction bar? It doesn't seem to be working.
Japanese keyboard nearly unusable: anyone else?7 voti 8 commenti
I have English, Chinese, Japanese and German enabled. I find the keyboard in general rather laggy for me, but nothing unbearable. The exception is Japanese, which I am virtually unable to use, both because of extreme lag and because the keyboard can't seem to handle simple phrases or words and will stop showing suggestions.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it an issue with the Japanese keyboard itself, or is it because SwiftKey is becoming overwhelmed by having to make predictions in four languages simultaneously? If it is the latter, would it be possible to switch off this function and switch languages manually? I understand that this is a vital function for many people, but I personally don't need to type in all four languages at once.
Thanks very much! :)
Arabic layout is messed up for longpress characters7 voti 30 commenti
I started using SwiftKey this past month after testing it out on my new phone and I think I'm sticking with it. But one thing I loathe about it is how all the characters on the Arabic keyboard are scattered around with no logical connection between them, I'm not talking about the main letters but the ones you get when you long press a letter.
Let me give you an example, in both Google's GBoard and Apple's keyboard and probably every keyboard out there when you long-press on the letter Alif (ا), the equivalent of A, you'd get all the variations أإآء... But SwiftKey kind of have them scattered around like on a physical keyboard which is not very thoughtful. This leaves me either guessing or using an ugly theme with all the letters shown.
This problem is present on both the main beta releases of the keyboard on iOS and Android.
White font on white background after the latest Swiftkey update when typing horizontally (from yesterday)6 voti 7 commenti
Hello Swiftkey Support,
I've been facing with a very annoying issue since the latest Swiftkey update from yesterday.
Suddenly and after this update, I'm not able to type anything on my messengers apps (WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Viber) when having my phone horizontally because Swiftkey changes the font into white color on white background, so basically I can't see what I'm typing.
Before this update, Swiftkey was working absolutely normally, I am absolutely sure because I've been always typing on my phone via horizontally position and the font was in black color and on white background.
This is happening only in case of horizontally typing. When I move my phone to vertical position, I can see white font on dark background, like it's supposed to be in normal way.
But when I move my phone with the same text again into horizontally position, Swiftkey changes by itself the font into white and on white background, so I can't see anything.
Could you please fix this because it's really annoying ?
I've been using Android 10 on my phone.
I've restarted my phone also and it didn't fix the Swiftkey issue. When I changed my keyboard to Gboard, everything is working normally, even in horizontally position.
Thank you very much.

Installing on a new phone6 voti 4 commenti
On my old phone I used to have swiftkey and really enjoyed it. My phone died so I got a new one and today I installed swiftkey on it and logged in to the program. One thing I immediately noticed (and was disappointed with) was on my new phone is that all my suggestive words seem to be gone. What I mean is for work I send a lot of similar texts and it got to the point my phone would pretty much suggest the next word I intended to use because I had written that exact sentence so many times. I always saw the app boasting about how many words it had suggested and key strokes it had saved me. Since you have a profile you log into for the program I was hoping it was stored online or something to where these suggestive words would somehow "download" onto the new phone but so far it does not look like. Was there a file or something that was saved locally on the old phone i May be able to move over?
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?
Swiftkey has failed to sync my saved words6 voti 15 commenti
Sync is enabled on my old and new phones. I have synced both phones ans still i am unable to see my saved words.
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.

Auto incognito switching and typing (Accented characters)6 voti 1 commento
It's awesome to know that SwiftKey can switch to Incognito mode automatically in Chrome/Firefox incognito tabs. But there's an issue.
The keyboard theme/UI for the incognito mode, does not show Accented characters. This causes serious problems while typing or want to type fast.
1. Implement the feature, to show all Accented characters, custom theme in incognito mode (just don't track the typing, and that's all).
2. Give option to turn off Auto incognito switching.
3. Give option to turn off incognito in incognito tab (may be vulnerable).

Remove annoying toolbar (+) icon6 voti 5 commenti
A couple of versions ago, SwiftKey introduced a new feature called 'toolbar' for easy access to all kinds of features.
Great, though I'm never ever using it.
In fact, I don't want the extra bar to take up screen space because I don't use it anyway.
While typing though, I find myself pressing the +button in the top left corner every minute or so.
This makes me have to close the bar again with the x button, in order to get rid of the useless toolbar.
Introducing new functionality is great, however, please also give us the option to disable this functionality, if we never use it anyway.
I've been using SwiftKey for ages and this has been the only complaint I've had so far.
Kaomoji Support (Japanese Emoticons)6 voti 5 commenti
Have been looking for a keyboard that has it all and SwiftKey works for me for the most part. But it's kind of annoying how I have to switch to a different keyboard every now and then to enter kaomoji or Japanese emoticons like these - (๑•̀д•́๑)ʅʕ•ᴥ•ʔʃ
Would be really nice if these could be made default or as an add on in the SwiftKey keyboard
Flow accuracy (still)6 voti 5 commenti
When is the accuracy of flow going to get addressed, or even just the ability to reset the tap map?
It's been months and the accuracy is still totally horrific. It is and had been for a long time slightly better when you freshly Install, and the tap map hadn't adjusted the keys to help with accuracy. After a little use and the keys get "adjusted" and you are fighting against the AI that's trying to make things better. This has totally been a huge problem, but it seems to get over looked. As said before reinstalling helps with accuracy, but reinstalling and having to reteach your dictionary and all is not that great of an option,
Will accuracy ever improve?
From the official Microsoft SwiftKey page...
"Frustration-free typing", "Fast and accurate"
Have they even tried using it???

customizable special character placement-long press6 voti 1 commento
Please allow user to place characters in place for long press on several keys.
This has been suggested for Android (by Matt Winans).
Customization is important because there are many special characters, and there is large variability in the characters to which different users wish quick access.
The concept appears in Blink keyboard, but their implementation is terrible.
Punctuation and spaces6 voti 3 commenti
This is driving me crazy. I get spaces before, but not after, semicolons, colons, etc. But I get spaces after opening parenthesis and brackets. And spaces where there should be nine around apostrophes and quotation marks.
Consider these un-corrected lines:
Well go then ;don't come back.
Trey 'a coat
--(should have been "Trey's coat". Even tap-typing it didn't work the first time).
Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I love SwiftKey, but this is enough to drive me away.
How to disable emoji predictions6 voti 5 commenti
When I switch to the emoji in the last version, the page shown is a crystal ball (apparently it is the beta predictions), instead of the "recent" (with the clock page). Does anyone knows how to change that ?
Edit April 26, 2018 : well, it looks like the problem has been resolved with the last version. Thanks!
Voice input6 voti 6 commenti
They only reason why I don't like swift key compared to gboard is due to lack of quick access to voice input. Can you please bring voice input key top right as it's currently placed in the gboard. To be honest Windows phone keyboard was so much better.

Stop suggesting capital "i" when I'm typing in Swedish (where lowercase "i" is a common word)6 voti 2 commenti
I have Swedish and English activated, because I tend to use both languages. But whenever I'm typing a sentence in Swedish and hitting the letter "i", Swiftkey changes that to "I" (capital i) instead, even though my intention was to write "i" (which is a really, really common word in Swedish, meaning "in"). I've tried multiple times to tell swiftkey not to suggest "I" at all, but it doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure the reason is that "I" is an English word, which for some reason takes precedence over the Swedish (equally common) word "i". Please, please, could you develop the software such that the English suggestion does not automatically takes precendence in such "ties", but let it be based on the language the previous word belonged to instead? That would help a lot!
[Feature Request] Trackpad in Spacebar (Android)6 voti 1 commento

Swedish Language/layout is forced to type capital "i" every time.6 voti 3 commenti
When you're typing away with the Swedish language and layout, you're forced to go back and correct all the "i''s. Swiftkey autocorrects every single "i" to a "Capital I".
We never have or ever will use capital "i" mid sentences.
