I have a tablet that I use SwiftKey on, and just also installed it onto my new smartphone. I made sure backup & sync was enabled on the tablet, then signed into the same account on the phone and told it to sync, but my account data won't load.

Delete Options [suggestion] Respondida4 votos 7 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.
Keyboard layout queries Respondida0 votos 1 comentário
I've just downloaded this keyboard as I wanted one with emoji prediction functionality and so far it's been a good decision!
A couple of quick queries - on my main keyboard page the numbers appear in the top row, is there any way to have the numbers appear on the top row on the punctuation page as well rather on the right or left?
Also, on the bottom row of the main keyboard is there any way to change the key next to enter so that the automatic option is a question mark rather than full stop? I know I can long press for the question mark but would prefer if it was readily available.
I sometimes get a capital letter mid sentence - how do I stop this Respondida0 votos 3 comentários
Should be self explanatory. Isn't truth a regular word in the dictionary? It showed up there. Why would it only be available capitalized after a comma?

[Feature Request] Automatic theme changes Respondida-1 votos 2 comentários
If it's possible I would really enjoy a setting that allows the keyboard theme to be chosen at random from your downloaded themes at different intervals. Maybe daily or hourly or even every time the keyboard pops up. There's so many themes I like but I get lazy and don't want to go to settings to decide which one I want to use.
Wechat - Swipe to delete/long press not deleting whole words Respondida3 votos 6 comentários
Android - 7.1.1 - Nexus 5x
Swiftkey - 188.8.131.52
Long pressing/holding delete or swiping to delete will only delete 1 letter/digit at a time within wechat. This is only happening within the wechat application, and no where else.
Information regarding the issue:
There is already a post here with all relevant information:
Short version is that, in order to fix a minor bug where users had to click 4 times to delete an emoji, this new issue was introduced. This new issue is far worse than the bug they were fixing...
Despite this being a 'known issue' it still hasn't been addressed in any of the recent updates.
Can this please get fixed, I just got a new nexus 5x and am experiencing this problem, I don't want to have to install an old version of swiftkey so that I can type/delete properly in wechat (which I use all the time).

Two simple design flaws which want me to replace SwiftKey Respondida3 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.

SwiftKey unable to enter text properly in android Gmail app Respondida0 votos 2 comentários
After updating android Gmail app to the latest version, SwiftKey is unable to enter text properly.
Text and auto corrections are filled in at positions where the cursor is not at.
I noticed that this only occurs when the "..." button to expand the email remains in the text form. After expanding the email (to show previous replies), the issue seems to go away.
Text underlined in Swiftkey Beta? Respondida2 votos 7 comentários
Hello - Within the last couple of updates of the Swiftkey Beta app, underlined text has begun appearing in the predictions bar at times while I'm typing. I just switched back to the Swiftkey app and this underline does not appear ever so it doesn't appear to be a system-wide phone issue. What is this underline? I find this incredibly annoying, especially because there doesn't appear to be any discernible use for it. I just typed 'Is' and it was underlined. If this is going to be added to the regular app going forward, could we also get an option to turn it off? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Undock sometimes broken in landscape mode [not a bug] Respondida0 votos 3 comentários
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (US)
Android: 6.0.1 Marshmallow
Video of problem: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o6bhe8nbd4q7xze/20170327_012752.mp4?dl=0
Attempting to undock Swiftkey sometimes fails in landscape mode when the app has opened it in fullscreen mode. Clearing data or reinstalling doesn't fix it, but rebooting does. This suggests to me that it's something outside Swiftkey interfering with it undocking.
It always undocks successfully in portrait mode, and I don't think I've seen it fail in landscape apps that don't usually open it as a fullscreen keyboard.

Deleting a whole wrong predicted word Respondida0 votos 3 comentários
I'm new to SwiftKey with my new Huawei phone but used similar with my previous Samsung.
When a word is predicted which is incorrect & it doesn't appear as an alternative, I'd like to delete the whole word rather than a letter at a time ~ previously for me, the default was to remove the word & start again.
I can't find this option in the settings, can anyone help please?
All themes should have option for secondary characters Respondida0 votos 2 comentários
Every theme should have the ability to turn on the secondary characters. I want a bunch of the colorful themes but they have no secondary keys and that won't work for me. The solution to this problem would be to have the option to turn on the secondary characters for every theme. And then have the option to turn it off for every theme, this would make everyone happy. Versus right now all the new themes don't have secondary characters so you're alienating the people that like it.

Emoji prediction reset Respondida0 votos 1 comentário
I accidentally removed prediction for the haha emoji. I use it a lot and can't get it back. Is there a way to reset that?
I want to disable all emojis. Help! Respondida17 votos 61 comentários
I updated my app and there is a change I do not like. It used to be that you would long press the enter key to get the Emoji menu.
On pages like Facebook and Reddit, whenever I hit the enter key it immediately brings up the Emojis. I have to long press to hit enter.
It is not doing it here. When I hit enter it enters the new line. It seems to be limited to social media. The only other option I have seen is to have a dedicated Emoji key and then it makes other buttons more narrow and when I go to hit the dedicated comma button, it accidentally hits the dedicated emoji button.
I am fine with not having emojis at all. Is there a way to stop it from doing this on social media? It never did before. I love SwiftKey and I've use it since it was a paid app. I'm not liking this, though.
