Numeric Keypad0 voti 0 commentiHave submitted a feature request for a numeric keypad to be available in SwiftKey. It is surprising that for the sophisticated level of the app, it does not have one. Google G-board does, but the keyboard lacks in accuracy and learning. Most people are used to capturing figures through a keypad, be it on laptop, mobile, ATM, etc. Even Microsoft login reset brings up a numeric keypad for you to enter the security code they send you. Why can't this feature be included on the app? Has anyone else felt the need for this? Please submit as a feature request in order to give the suggestion more weight.
Android error: "Unlock your device to view" ???1 voto 0 commenti
I'm running the latest SwiftKey on my Android 10 device (OnePlus 7Pro - GM-1917 - running OOS 10.3.3). It has been working fine for months, but recently, an error has started occurring. I also am getting this same error on the latest SwiftKey beta.
With the keyboard open, if I click on the three dots on the upper right in order to get to the settings, the keyboard disappears, and I just get a blank window containing the following message: "Unlock your device to view".
My device is not "locked" in any way. All other apps work fine.
This never used to happen. I only started noticing it within the past couple days.
Now, when I go into my Android settings, select SwiftKey, and try to select a different keyboard layout, I get the same error instead of seeing a layout to click on.
It seems like whenever SwiftKey is trying to display some sort of dialog within an area on the screen, this error occurs.
Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?
Thank you in advance.
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.

Truly customizable keyboard layout0 voti 0 commenti
Hey guys. First thanks for keyboard. Second why you won't do fully customizable keyboard? I could not find any and that would be truly amazing feature. Like if I can select what symbol I can send in any key. Also if I can add maybe one or 2 extra keys making spacebar narrower (like left right arrows keys would be cool) And even super mega duper cool would be to add extra mode. Like now I can toggle modes with button 123/abc so if there is 123/abc/my it would be jackpot for me... I would go crazy and to this new mode keyboard I would add for me normal arrows like on normal keyboard, I would add there button that would send shift+enter code and shift+tab as some web pages uses this. ctrl+z, esc code, f1 code and such button codes. It would be truly amazing fully customizable and possible to send all the codes which I have trouble to type with most keyboards... And it is not really difficult to implement... Like text prediction may be science but this is just 2 extra buttons and list which maps button with sent code.... An intern could do that...
Making a qwerty with Ç for portuguese6 voti 2 commenti
I would like to ask you to make available a QWERTY layout for Portuguese with the letter Ç, just like there's a layout for spanish with Ñ. It's horrible having to long press C everytime we want to put an Ç. Ç is as important for portuguese just as ñ is to spanish. Please make it available.

Force Dark mode issues1 voto 2 commentiGreetings, I am having a challenge with the legibility of some of the keys of my keyboard when I put on "force Dark mode" this is the only app that I have a problem with and I pray that you resolve it.

Slow voice input with Swiftkey, but voice input fast with every other keyboard application.0 voti 0 commenti
Earlier this year, I think around February, I noticed that voice input while using Swiftkey became unusable, to slow. The delay between speaking and seeing the text input was a few seconds.
There is another post on this topic that I found and the response given was that it must be related to internet speed/bandwidth since Google does the actual processing. If this were the case, then it would affect all other keyboard applications.
Can someone please take a serious look at this issue? I truly love the Swiftkey app, it is far superior to others, but I cannot use it if voice input is not functional.
Add option to disable auto space after punctuation.1 voto 0 commentiEverytime I put a comma or a dot it automatically puts a space after it, its FUCKING annoying, nobody likes this SHIT. People have been complaining about this for years and there's still no option to turn this off. Add an option to turn this garbage off or I will have to go back to Gboard.
Removed words keep coming back1 voto 3 commenti
Can someone explain why words that I remove from the dictionary keep coming back automatically after a few minutes or hours?
For example, I am trying to remove the all caps word OK, because no one spells it like that anymore and I personally dislike it.
Instead, I have the word Ok or ok in my dictionary.
However, it keeps coming back every time and always defaults back to the obnoxious OK.
How can I stop it from coming back please. I've been trying to get rid of it for months now. Never used to be a problem in my previous account.
Ability to use censored gifs3 voti 1 commento
I realize that you want to try to keep everyone happy, but we should be able to use adult orientated gifs. As an adult, I am fully capable of knowing when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. A toggle that is turned off by default, but to allow us to turn them on would be great. Right now, I have to switch between keyboards to use them, which is obviously not the solution that I should have to use. Especially with such a great tool as this is :).

The whole point of the app was to store words and its not doing that when transferring from one phone to another :( please provide an alternative solution instead of blaming Google. I'm so frustrated.

"shift keys" / special keys won't show?0 voti 1 commento
So I got a new phone, the Xperia XZ3, and I'm trying to make the keyboard show all the special keys, but can't find the setting for it. On my last phone, the XZ, it showed those characters as standard, being greyed out on top of the main keys. They still work tho, if I long press M I get / but it's absurd to have to memorize all of them. Any1 know how to make them appear? Thanks
Gifs as URLs0 voti 1 commentoHello, This is a problem a bunch of us are having BUT I cannot seem to find a solution. I am using Android 10 on my Galaxy Note 10+. I have all the latest updates with Android OS and SwiftKey app. WhatsApp works perfectly when sending a gif. My stock sms messaging app will send Gifs about 20% of the time whereas the remaining majority receives lengthy URLs. The thing is the same people I am texting are showing this annoying inconsistency. Sometimes they receive the gif and most of the time they just get those URLs. Please tell me that there is a solution to this or that it is a known bug (for over 3 years it seems) that SwiftKey is working to fix. Thanks, Nate
