We recently brought Cursor Control to your Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard for Android. This much-requested feature had previously only ever been available on iOS.
If you haven't tried it out you can do so by tapping & holding your spacebar to move the cursor.
If you use multiple languages, cursor control will need to be turned on first; this setting can be found in your ‘Typing’ menu.
Make yourself heard!
We'd love to know what you think. This is YOUR opportunity to help us shape the future of Cursor Control, e.g. is it useful? Does it work as you expect? Could it be improved? Do you love/hate it?
Whatever your opinion, we will take all feedback seriously.

I would like to understand what the difference are between the Duo Themes and the other themes so that I might explain them.
Surface Duo Adaptive
Surface Duo Light
Surface Duo Dark
Those vs each other And any of the other themes. What is duo specific about them? Are the other themes acceptable and on the Duo? I've used the other themes, but trying to understand.
Themes feedback Con risposta0 voti 1 commentoHello. I've been flowing on SwiftKey since i had my first Xperia X10i in 2013 and it's amazing fun to use. I love to keep using it. It's been quite a long time since the themes section was updated i changed to gboard for a few days and now i want a combination of the two. It's high time to update that store make it paid if you have to Thanks
Add support for multiple layouts when using a foldable phone0 voti 1 commento
As the title says, SwiftKey is probably the best keyboard on Android and the fact that it doesn't support one layout for a small screen and another layout for a bigger/main screen is jarring. There aren't really any good alternatives out there and the foldable part of the SwiftKey community would benefit greatly from this addition. Heck, even Microsoft with their Duo series should have already thought about this problem for their users.
Beside the To-Do widget, I would like to give the Bitwarden app access to SwiftKey too0 voti 1 commentoFeedback: Under settings >> Rich Input >> Tasks >> "Allow Tasks suggestion on your last copied item I love this feature, and I would like Microsoft to make an API available which allows third-party apps (which have been verified/vetted by Microsoft) to be able to paste their information into SwiftKey as well. I would like to allow access to other apps under the setting "Rich Input" and to then add the Bitwarden password manager. Now only To Do Tasks (Wunderlist) items can be added but it would be great if other password managers and other apps could do this as well. Maybe you guys are already working on this and otherwise I would like to request it. I think more people would benefit from this. : )
SwiftKey refuses to let me type accented characters on a physical keyboard using Parallels Client Con risposta0 voti 1 commento
I love Swiftkey, but it doesn't work correctly in combination with an RDP client like Parallels Client. Whenever Swiftkey is enabled as the current input method in the Android settings, typing accented characters (and sometimes pressing backspace) doesn't work well in the Parallels Client. When using Gboard as my main keyboard, everything works fine, but with Swiftkey, characters are shown twice, lliikkee tthhiiss, and accented characters aren't working as it should when PC keyboard mode is enabled in Parallels Client. Could this be fixed?

Voice to Text Deletes SwiftKey Keyboard Preference4 voti 1 commento
When I go to use Voice to Text from my SwiftKey Keyboard, the keyboard disappears and is no longer accessible. Upon trying to pull up the keyboard again, it is not retrievable. When reviewing the keyboard setting in the system settings, it shows that the On-screen keyboard has changed from SwiftKey to Gboard. Help please?
This started happening after the Android 12 update.
Keyboard won't minimize unless I restart my phone0 voti 1 commento
I swear I posted this before, but can't find it - sorry for any duplicates.
When I'm in Messages and want to go to another app, the keyboard often won't minimize. It covers half the screen - home screen, camera, everything. Now, the only way I can get it to leave is by restarting my phone.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app but it didn't fix the problem.

Change activation area of each button0 voti 1 commentoFor the longest time I have been having major typing issues with SwiftKey. I keep accidentally pressing keys I don't want to. The keys below the key I'm pressing activates instead. I guess my fingers are too big and because the letters are printed on the bottom vs middle, my eyes/fingers naturally want to tap the lower portions of the keys. Is it possible to change the activation area of a key? Like I'd like to add some sort of dead zone at the top of each key to prevent them from firing.

Keyboard won't go away unless I restart my phone Con risposta0 voti 1 commento
I used to be able to make it go away by hitting the mic button. Then i fussed around with a bunch of buttons and sometimes one would make it go, but I'm tired of this! Why is it taking over, and what can I do about it without restarting my phone every time?!
(I assume this is obvious, but below is a screen shot of my home screen with the unruly SwiftKey stubbornly refusing to eff off. )

Android 12 broke spellcheck integration0 voti 1 commento
When using gboard - spellchecker works correctly and underlines misspelled words in both languages I have configured. This used to work with Swiftkey as well - until the upgrade to Android 12. Now it continues to work fine with gboard, but neither English nor Spanish misspelled words are underlined.

проблема с синхронизацией буферов обмена1 voto 5 commenti
настроила синхронизацию между компьютером и андроид-клавиатурой, если я копирую текст на телефоне, я вижу его на пк, но наоборот не работает. пробовала и автоматическую синхронизацию, и ручную, но работает функция только в одну сторону. очень бы хотелось иметь возможность полной синхронизации, в чем может быть причина?
