    Hi Derek,

    We are testing something called the "verbatim" visual.

    So anything you see underlined is exactly what you have typed in. This is supposed to help identify when the word you want to type and insert is different than what SwiftKey thinks you are typing.

    So for example, you are typing in a word SwiftKey does not know, it will be in the left prediction bar. As you keep typing this word may move to the middle prediction.

    Does that make sense?

    Somewhat, but I'm not sure of the point? I actually find it quite distracting. It seems to be highlighting words that swiftkey knows. If you type the whole word prior to SwiftKey predicting it, it will highlight that entire word. Some of the shorter words like it, is, etc. are the main offenders.
    Thanks for the response! At least I know it's not something in the settings for the phone or Swiftkey.

    A lot of people don't know how SwiftKey's auto correct works. So we added this bit of visual UI - to let users know exactly what they have typed.

    So for example, if you were typing out "sfeafsfdsg" and this is the word you wanted - it would most likely be in the far left prediction bar - as your verbatim prediction, the word we think you meant would be in the middle. 

    This visual is, in a way, meant to be seen, so you then see the word you want is not the same word as whats in the middle, so it would be a queue to press on it.

    It is completely visually distracting. Please make this an option rather than a standard.

    I think the same, it's very distracting. Actually I can't stand it.

    Hi,
    i have same issue, its distracting me a lot, with underline.
    Please put it as option not as must have.
    I dont know why you spoil nice work and give yourself to be as other programs, you where best, but every new update is worst.
    I use swift and would like to use it in future, but not with options which you put without option to turn it down.
