Voice Typing0 voti 4 commentiBack story. For many months I've been using 2 keyboards, gboard for voice typing and SwiftKey for regular typing. I decided to hit the microphone and try using SwiftKey voice to text and it was just like that of gboard! I was ecstatic and then today, all of a sudden it reverted back to the old voice typing with the white box.. Why!? I was so happy with the black box that would type as I was speaking making my life so much easier. I really don't wanna go back to using 2 keyboards, please bring back the voice to text that was just like gboard. It was like having the best of both worlds! SwiftKey blows gboard out of the water but when it comes to voice to text gboard is still better. At least let me have the option to choose which voice to text I wanna use. Please! Example, when I'm in my car I could unlock my phone to my messenger and the voice dictation would automatically start, amazing! I need this back. It was truly amazing but too short lived.

swiftket voice input button stays on voice input -----1 voto 3 commenti
when you use voice to text button now on swiftkey it brings up voice inout , close out messages and go back in and there is no keyboard it defaults back to voice inout automatically.
then you have to hit the keyboard button at the bottom and change back to swiftkey keybord
it used to be you press the button say your message and send it , then next time your in a message it would default back to swiftkey. keyboard to type.
but now when you hit the microphone icon it stays on all the time for all messages.

Aggiungere parole con apostrofo0 voti 2 commentiSalve, avevo questa tastiera installata nel mio HUAWEI P8 Lite 2017 e mi suggeriva correttamente la parola po' con l'apostrofo. Ho cambiato telefono recentemente, uno Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, installato la tastiera SwiftKey, CONSERVATO LO STESSO ACCOUNT, ma ora non suggerisce (o corregge) più la parola po'. E non c'è modo di aggiungerla manualmente! Come posso fare per aggiungere questa parola? Grazie.

Backspace key settings2 voti 3 commenti
I've always used the Samsung keyboard before, but it lagged a lot on my new phone, so I was told to try another keyboard. Swiftkey has solved my lagging problem, or at least I don't notice it as much, but instead I find that I'd like to customize my backspace button. When I hold down the key, it deletes entire words instead of just letters, which really gets on my nerves when I make a typo in longer words (I type in Finnish too). Additionally, I'd really like to rearrange the "symbols" page (the one that pops up when you press the 123 button), though I suppose I'll grow used to the new order of keys in time if rearranging them isn't possible. But is there a way to change settings for the backspace key?
Caps Lock On1 voto 6 commentiMy keyboard will occasionally start with the caps lock on. I will open an app where the keyboard comes up, for example, messenger. It will start in caps lock so I TYPE IN ALL CAPS RIGHT OFF THE BAT. I can't find a setting that would be causing this. Using a Samsung note 10+. Have been using this keyboard app on 5 different devices before this one and have never encountered this before.
Automatic Insertion of Space after Punctuation2 voti 2 commenti
Please add an option to turn off the insert of a space after punctuation. I would like to know what I am typing is actually what gets entered without the application inserting a space after a period, comma or other punctuation.
Please add an option to completely turn this behavior off or back on as the user decides.

Hello guys. Please consider adding the WORKMAN keyboard layout. Its supported by most major desktop OSes but android is yet to catch up.Thank You
parola con apostrofo o troncamento2 voti 3 commenti
vorrei capire come memorizzare termini. In pratica la tastiera swiftkey non memorizza il termine <po'>, che in italiano è il troncamento di poco ed è un termine molto utilizzato. Nella lingua italiana <po> non esiste. Esiste <Po> maiscolo, cioè il fiume Po.
E' un problema che posso risolvere in autonomia?
Having Problem while typing.1 voto 2 commentiWhenever I type, my keyboard lags behind and the speed of typing becomes very very slow. It becomes irritating that you want to write something else and something else is being written. Lots of spelling mistakes happens. There is enough space in my smartphone but still it hangs. GF
Sync & backup *all* pinned CLIPBOARD clips & keyword shortcuts for them (or at least: optional Import/Export as .txt or .xml) ACROSS phones!7 voti 8 commenti
I use SwiftKey on multiple phones. Same login / account.
They should all be able to add new clips but also have ability to SEE clips added from different phones (same SwiftKey user!)
I'm speaking about - SYNC.
Our clipboards clips AREN'T BACKED UP AND SYNCED.
I have so many of them set-up. Do u know how much TIME I have spent setting Pinned clipboard clips and shortcuts up, just to lose them all? :(
Please, SwiftKey team, SYNC them.
Or at least, give option to export and import! (XML, TXT, whatever - as long as Import exists, too!)
I lose so much of my hard work because you DON'T backup/sync clipboard content and pinned items and shortcuts ACROSS PHONES, when SwiftKey account is the same...
I once lost my phone and bought another, enabled SwiftKey and NONE OF MY CLIPS were saved. :((((Such a big disappointment!
Please give this HIGH priority, PLEASE.
Kindest regards, Helen
PS. Do you, other fellow SwiftKey users, agree that there should be Backup & Sync (and/or Import / Export) of our Clipboard's clips?Pinned ones, especially!
Unwanted comma's4 voti 21 commenti
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.
Cut Copy Paste SelectAll Shortcuts10 voti 9 commenti
Add this function of cut copy paste and select-all by sliding the finger from numberkey to X, C, V and A respectively.
This would be really really helpful and would be the best update till date that saves a lot of time of the user.
Release the updates as soon as possible.

[bug] Preceeding space is removed when typing a colon3 voti 14 commenti
Since last two version whenever I type a colon the preceeding space is automatically removed. This is super annoying when typing smileys. If I deliberately type a space and then a colon I expect the space to stay. As you guys probably know, most apps don't convert ":)" into an emoji unless it's surrounded by spaces. As of know I have to manually go back and add a space before the colon after its typed.
I kindly ask you guys to revert this "feature".

SwiftKey keyboard appears when Home button is pressed on Android 10 EMUI 101 voto 2 commenti
Yesterday I upgraded a Huawei P30 Lite to the latest version available: Android 10, EMUI 10.0.0.197
Now whenever an app is open and I click the Home button to go to home screen, the keyboard appears. Clicking the Home button a second time when I'm at home screen makes the keyboard disappear.
Is there any settings on Android or in SwiftKey that I can adjust to make this super annoying bug go away?
I would prefer not to uninstall SwiftKey.
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.
Emoji search (as in Gboard)26 voti 30 commenti
It would be quite useful, if there were a way to search for emojis, when the Emoji button has been pressed.
It should be kind of like how Gboard does it, where you switch to Emoji mode and then you can search (eg. you type "cat" and see the cat emoji 🐈).
This is a feature request for the SwitfKey Android keyboard; I cannot use Swiftmoji, as it is english only and not available in Switzerland.
Language1 voto 3 commenti
Isn't there any language in SwitKey so that we type in english but appears in Hindi/Marathi i.e Indian language?
How do I stop the space after hyphen?0 voti 3 commentiI've started working on documents with a lot of numbers, which often use negative numbers. How do I stop the automatic space between hyphen (-) and the number from happening? I tried searching in the settings and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off. It's annoying to have to back space every time.
Add more Layouts1 voto 2 commenti
Hi Community, hie Swiftkey, hi Microsoft,
please add more Layouts in SwiftKey, i would like to have the NEO Layout (https://neo-layout.org/)
Just as Workman is optimized for US and UK, so NEO is designed for the German speaking/typing space.
The NEO layout currently contains 6 levels, with which almost all characters from mathematics, programming..... can be typed.
[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian6 voti 11 commenti
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.
