    Hello Rob,

    Please add necessary details: SwiftKey version #, and if you can insert a screenshot that would be more helpful.

    Hi @Alpert

    Im running 6.5.9.21 on Android

    The keyboard changed on 22.05.17 with an app update. I don't have a screenshot of the old keyboard I liked. It is called 'Light' and I don't like the new version as much.

    Thanks

    I know the theme.
    But I've never used it. I'll talk to the mod team to see if there was a change.

    Thanks very much Alpert. It's ironic that I was consciously thinking that finally I had found my perfect keyboard which is why I was gutted when it suddenly changed. Maybe I'm too fussy, but it would be fantastic to have it back.

    Kind regards

    Rob,
    I created a ticket for you to the team. You should be able to get an official reply in several days.

    Thank you for choosing SwiftKey.

    I feel EXACTLY the same as Rob...and so does my wife! We both have HTC One M9 phones. We really dislike this new version of "light". PLEASE bring back the previous version that I have been using for years - it was perfect!

    Hi Colin,

    Thanks for posting. Hopefully SwiftKey will resolve this issue for us. I will keep you posted on here with any developments once I've heard back from the team. Here's hoping!

    Solution yet?? It's been 5 days!

    This SOOOOOOOO frustrates me!

    While we're at it... It is also SOOOOOOOO frustrating that Swiftkey won't let me effin' CUSS without trying to censor MY effin' typing! Who do they think they are!??

    I made an account just to add to this.

    I found a screenshot someone else took with the original Light theme, and I took a screenshot of my keyboard with the broken Light theme for comparison.

    Original Light theme:

    http://androidandme.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/SwiftKey-X-light-theme.png

    Broken Light theme:

    Changes that can see:

    • The arrow keys are now completely white instead of dark gray.
    • The button outlines are thicker and darker.
    • The enter/shift/other keys are now black instead of dark gray.
    • All the button text and the buttons themselves have lost their emboss effect.

    S, thank you for your very helpful post. I would add that single caps and caps lock are indistinguishable on the shift key in the broken version. In the original version, caps lock was indicated with a blue highlight on the shift key. This is an incredibly important feature of any keyboard.

    Please can the Swift Key support team update us on the progress of us returning to the original Light theme. Thanks.

    It's been 10 days since the broken "Light" keyboard was first flagged. Any update on when it will be fixed? Thanks

    Same problem here. I've emailed support about this including screenshots (I stopped my tablet from updating after my phone had updated to be ugly as you described) but heard nothing about it since.

    Instead, it looks like this; no shift lock indication and fat, ugly lines around keys and suggestions.

    There's a new update, 6.6.0, which is an improvement BUT the caps lock highlight hasn't been reinstated.

    The theme has been updated to look more like it did before. 

    Some are reporting an issue with the caps lock shift state. 

    John seems to be the only one who's noticed the shift state issue.

    Can everyone update and confirm if the shift state issue is there for you or not.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for getting the keyboard to look more like it did before. I confirm I also have the shift state problem, ie no blue key indicicator for caps lock. It's a major issue for me so would be very grateful if you could reinstate.

    Kind regards.

    The update fixed most the errors, but the arrow keys are still white.

    I've just upgraded to the HTC 10 and I concur with the comments above...the Light keyboard is nearly returned to the original but the Caps Lock key is still missing the blue arrow when activated and the arrows on the arrow keys are still white. I'd really appreciate it if you could fix these two points. Thanks.

    I've updated the title of this ticket to reflect the new issue. 

    At least the theme looks a lot better to the original look.

    Same here:
    In the German layout of the light theme there isn't any Shift Lock indicator anymore. The Shift key should be light blue if Shift Lock is active. Please bring back this functionality, it is essential!

    Greetings from Germany,
    Thomas.
