[Feature Request] Move Cursor with Gestures Respondida104 votos 105 comentários
I like the flow and I like gestures. Gestures have an option to delete by swiping to the left ⬅, and to hide keyboard by sweeping down ⬇, but I'd like to see a feature where we could move pointer, just by sliding our finger on the keyboard.

[Main thread] GIF inserts as URL Respondida0 votos 63 comentários
When I attempt to insert a GIF in a text message from the SwiftKey keyboard, it only inserts a URL to the GIF, not the GIF. This started happening after the latest big update (couple days now).
Old Phone to New Phone Android Respondida24 votos 63 comentários
I'm struggling here to transfer from my Samsung 6 to the new Samsung 8 with all my predictions from the old phone. First I did a backup sync on my old phone, and then did a backup sync on my new S8. Nothing happened. Do I need to delete the app on my old phone? Dose anyone have an answer.
I will say that the tech support is very weak in regards to the response time, and information. I'm surprised being a Microsoft owned product that they don't offer better support as I have been waiting more than three days for my answer.
Thanks for your response
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.

How can I disable multilingual predictions? Respondida24 votos 43 comentários
How can I disable the multilingual prediction feature (bug).
It is unwanted, uncalled fore, unnecessary, useless, counterproductive, counter-intuitive, and annoying.
Otherwise your app is awesome, until the next update (which hopefully will get rid of this feature) I will be switching to another keyboard, which is a shame.

[Not a bug] No prediction in Excel cells Respondida5 votos 39 comentários
i've been using Swiftkey for a long time to edit spreadsheets in Excel for Android. After the last update (21/08 if i'm correct) the prediction words on the upper side of the swiftkey keyboard do not show up!
Before the update the prediction was working flawlessly when i was editing a cell. Did you change that on purpose or is it a bug. I hope it's just a bug because i need the predictions back!

Keeps replacing "I'm" with "I" even with autocorrect turned off. Respondida7 votos 33 comentários
I cannot for the life of me get SwiftKey to stop replacing "I'm" with "I". It happens about 50% of the time and makes for some incredibly odd sounding sentences like "hey I going to the store" or "I on my way".
If I just repeatedly flow "I'm" this happens: "I I'm In I I'm I I'm I I'm I I'm I'm" where it alternates between the two, this is after telling it "do not predict I again".
I even turned off autocorrect and it STILL does it.
Device is an AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S8 running Android 7.0, using SwiftKey Beta 184.108.40.206. Steps to reproduce: try to type (using flow) "I'm".
[Not a SwiftKey Bug] Samsung SMS-emoji icon makes Samsung Keyboard crash Respondida3 votos 32 comentários
Pressing the emoji icon when writing an SMS (built in function on Samsung Galaxy S6) makes the Samsung Keyboard to crash while using Swiftkey. This hasen't been a problem until the new update came out for the phone about a week ago.
You have to restart your phone, and uninstall Swiftkey to prevent the notification from popping up, you can't use the keyboard otherwise.
I've tried other keyboard apps and some of them have the same issue.
I really love Swiftkey and I've used it for many years. Can you please come up with a fix, the problem is EXTREMLY annoying.
No recent emoji [Not a SwiftKey bug] Respondida1 voto 32 comentários
Since installing SwiftKey on my new galaxy S8, my recently used emoji are not being saved. When I switch back to Samsung's keyboard they work fine.
Switching between Languages Respondida7 votos 29 comentários
Is there any shortcut to Switch Between Languages? Every time I have to go to settings to select required Language. Very Lengthy Process.
Multiple Language Priority Respondida7 votos 26 comentários
I use a few different languages with SwiftKey and it works great, but I use English the most. But ever since I added the other languages I communicate in, SwiftKey seems to be suggesting foreign words over common words in English. Like "N°" instead of "No" and "Só" instead of "So".
Is there a way to hint to SwiftKey to prioritize English words so I stop sending "N°, I don't want to go to that restaurant" to my friends?

change emoji gender Respondida0 votos 21 comentários
Okay how do i explain it. So, some of the emojis on my swiftkey keyboard are only male or female. For example ( 🤷) how do i pick the male one?
fyi i can see the male one when someone else is typing it.
Also, there's an option on gboard to pick it. I just don't like the keyboard. I prefer SwiftKey.
More than 3 predictive suggestions? Respondida12 votos 21 comentários
How can I get more predictive suggestions than the default 3? In the Czech language quite a lot of words are longer and differ in one or two letters at the end (such as překrásný, překrásná, překrásní, překrásně, překrásné, překrásno, překrásnou,...). The prediction then is useless if I anyway need to type the whole word. In the old times my Nokia was able to expand for me the whole list of other similar words to choose from.
Can you fine tune autocorrect? Respondida1 voto 19 comentários
I'm finding SwiftKey incredibly annoying for a few different reasons: firstly because it autocorrects words that are legitimately words (i.e. not nonsense from poor typing); and secondly because it autocorrects when searching from address bar in Google.
These two things are very undesirable behaviours for me and they drive me bonkers.
I don't just want to turn autocorrect off, though, because I do want it to fix up genuine mistakes.
Is there a way to tune the settings so that I can turn off the things I don't want??

Keyboard crashing (?!) Respondida0 votos 16 comentários
I'm using ResurrectionRemix rom (5.8.5, based on Nougat 7.1.2) on OnePlus3.
After one of the latest updates the keyboard is constantly, not sure... crashing (my guess). There is no error but it frequently disappears while typing. I'm not hitting 'back' button and I'm 100% sure of this.
Cannot remove word prediction Respondida4 votos 16 comentários
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,

Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.
Make it easy for me to add.
One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.

Why can't I insert a GIF when replying to a message? Respondida-2 votos 15 comentários
When I reply to message and select a GIF I get prompted for the recipient as though it is a new message. This loses the recipient for the reply. This happens in all of my messaging apps. It doesn't happen with emojis. Why?
