Hi, is there an option to customize the keyboard theme with my own background image? In addition to that, is there a way to customize the colors of letters and swipe tail? I would like to customize the keyboard to exactly the way I'd like it.

How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Respondida4 votos 7 comentários
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance
Is there a way to have a .com button? Respondida4 votos 12 comentários
Hi there - I miss having the smart and handy .com key that I believe comes with stock Android. Is there a way to add it to the SwiftKey layout? It's pretty annoying that everytime I want to type .com I get a space and capitalized C after the period. A one-touch .com key would be fantastic!
Number Pad Layout Respondida4 votos 3 comentários
I would like an option in the settings to display the number pad with 123 starting at the bottom instead of at the top. It is more natural for me. I also find that I make critical errors in typing numbers because the 123 starts at the top.
Could you please add this feature in the next update.
Delete Options [suggestion] Respondida4 votos 8 comentários
I've recently switched to Swiftkey because I'm having some problems with Gboard. The one major thing I miss from that, however, is its wonderfully simple and intuitive 'gesture delete' function. You should really, REALLY check it out to see why it's so much better than just pressing and holding the del key and hoping you can release it in time to avoid deleting more than you wanted to. This is particularly important on a system like Android that doesn't offer any ctrl-z type undo options. All you do is swipe left off the del key until the text you want to delete is highlighted, then release to perform the delete. If you swipe too far you just have to slide back towards the del key a bit first. Simple!
I also find it mightily frustrating that the last word entered by flow typing can't be deleted with a single tap on the del key. That's how every other 'swipe' type keyboard app I've tried works and it seems pretty obvious to me it's how it should be. I realize this has been asked before and rejected, but I'd urge you to reconsider and at least make it an option.

Two simple design flaws which want me to replace SwiftKey Respondida4 votos 12 comentários
I am using SwitfKey for a long time, but desperatly want to switch to mostly any other keyboard software, because since years, there are two catastrophic design flaws in the app, which could be solved in minutes of programming time:
1) The optional numeric bar just shows the numbers 1 to 0, and has no second layout... why! Every keyboard on this planet has easy access to ! for example on number key 1, but not SwiftKey
2) For Germany layout, it is catastrophic to access most important keys like ö ä ü ß in SwiftKey. For example: if you hold key u, the default selection is "<" instead of "ü" ... WHY!!! This is the most annoying thing for German customers.
Please change default selection for uoa to üöä.
Give easy and fast access to !?ß. The access through . is a mess and breaks usage flaw on normal keyboards.
Give option to manipulate the key layout and change keys you want to have.

[Feature Request] Option to turn off flow through space Respondida4 votos 3 comentários
Much as some individuals may find the 'flow through space' feature useful, I find it is often an encumbrance.
When flowing words, especially those on the bottom row, any accidental overshoot downwards automatically inserts a space, forcing a correction. Is it possible to include a toggle to disable this feature?
Custom abbreviations for expansion Respondida4 votos 15 comentários

Thousands of Filipino SwiftKey users need Baybayin Filipino layout Respondida3 votos 1 comentárioGoogle's Gboard made the first move to making some writing systems available for communication on the internet, which includes Baybayin(a Filipino writing system on it's way to revive and be used again). Why hasn't others doing the same? Baybayin is increasing in popularity, thousands of people are only downloading Gboard because of it. I suggest it's SwiftKey's turn to help reviving the writing system for millions of Filipinos. To be honest, I just like SwiftKey more than Gboard. I really wish you would implement it and alot of us waiting would appreciate it very much.

How to disable auto backspace when using a punctuation mark? Respondida3 votos 3 comentários
When using a punctuation mark such as colon ":" after inserting space after a word, swiftkey automatically remove the space and connects the punctuation mark with the word.
This was not the case in older versions.
How do we get rid of this behavior?
Also, another thing is that, after any punctuation mark, swiftkey automatically inserts a space after it. In older versions it used to happen only for periods "." , commas "," and semicolons ";"
But now it happens for colon ":" as well which I don't want.
Example for both problems:
While Texting: Life is sad :(
Turns to: Life is sad: (
Please help me fix this as well.

[Duplicate] Switching between pinyin and handwriting Respondida3 votos 2 comentários
Until recently I have been able to easily switch between handwriting and pinyin when using the chinese(Tw) keyboard. By long pressing the "numbers and symbols" - button(bottom left) swiftkey would change between the layouts.
This has been very convenient for me as I'm trying to learn Chinese and being able to use both handwriting and pinyin makes the practice easier for me.
This feature seems to be gone now(I'm not able to do it anymore at least). Is it any means to get it back?
Why is Swiftkey asking for my location? Respondida3 votos 5 comentários
I really like swiftkey and I've used it for years, but things like this bug me: What possible reason would SwK ask me for access to my location? How is that in any way a benefit to me? Just wondering how they justify such a request.
