I do not want ok to be capitalized to OK4 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I am always removing "OK" from the prediction and it will just reappear all the time. It says "OK" successfully removed from learned words but it will still be there as the auto correct so if I do no click on the ok on the left it changes it to OK. It happened multiple times just writing this.

Can't use Swiftkey in Samsung DeX on Tab S44 проголосовали 4 прокомментировали
I have a Samsung Tab S4 and I really like the DeX mode with the official Samsung Tab S4 keyboard cover, but there's one major drawback. It seems there's nothing I can do to enable SwiftKey when in DeX mode.
As such, I have to rely on the useless Samsung keyboard which doesn't even add a capital letter at the start of sentences.
SwiftKey works fine when using the Samsung Tab S4 keyboard cover when not in DeX model.
How do I switch on SwiftKey in DeX mode?

Text shortcuts4 проголосовали 3 прокомментировали
I am a busy man, efficiency is key, but I've been using the default android keyboard since time immemorial. Stubborn to make its lackluster autocorrect system work for me. Swiftkey blows that out of the water BUT there's something seemingly easy to add but essential about the keyboard that's missing from Swiftkey and had saved me a ton of time in the Samsung keyboard. You guessed it, text shortcuts. They can help me write three letters that get replaced with a paragraph of text I'd pre-written and sent a thousand times. These are non negotiable to continue using your otherwise wonderful app and I'd be more than pleased to use it in the future should that feature be added
Thank you for your time
Accented characters at first place4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
In every single keyboard in the world, if you long press a letter, you get a variety of additional symbols and accented characters (according to language) at first position. The reason is obvious, you type more words than special symbols like brackets. In Czech language, almost every word has at least one accented character. With SwiftKey, where accented characters on second position after brackets etc, typing is even worse than with stock keyboard. I love many things of SwiftKey, but this is major issue while typing in language using diacritics.
This is example of text in Czech, it is about SwiftKey by the way:
SwiftKey je jedna z nejpoužívanějších virtuálních klávesnic ve smartphonech. Někteří výrobci, např. Huawei/Honor nebo Sony, ji dokonce do svých nadstaveb předinstalovávají jako primární klávesnici, ale stáhnout z marketu a instalovat na platformy Android a iOS ji může každý. Nově je androidová mutace SwiftKey zase o něco chytřejší. Microsoft jako její současný vlastník do ní přidal překladač v reálném čase.
You see how many diacritics is there? Can you imagine how insane it is to write this while every long tap option has a bracket or comma at first position?
I saw similar topics here with Hungarian user complaining and the topic was flagged "not planned". Why? This is not about improvement to be the best keyboard out there, this is more like issue to be fixed for SwifKey not to be the worst keyboard available.

Revert to letters after using the spacebar after punctuation.4 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
I just switch from iOS SwiftKey to Android Switfkey and the keyboard is a bit different. Its smaller, which is okay... But the punctuation is different. On iOS when I would type "oh my gosh!" for example, the keyboard would revert back to the letters after I typed the "!" and pressed the spacebar. I can't find an option for this. Is there one? If not, PLEASE fix this!
Another thing is the keys are in different places so I'm finding it hard to adapt. Adding a layout option for the keyboards would help. The bottom row of symbols has 8 symbols instead of the 5 I was used to. I am sure I will adjust, but it would be a nice feature for users who are switching keyboards.

How to disable Incognito mode С ответом4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Is there a way to completely disable the incognito mode of SwiftKey? It is extremely annoying and does not even know how to do voice to text and the layout and everything is drastically different. I end up having to get out of the application open up something like Microsoft Word, use SwiftKey to type what I wanr then do cut it and then paste it back into the original document because the incognito mode doesn't work very well.
Please tell me how to disable Incognito mode completely.
Typing bug (punctuation/enter key) С ответом4 проголосовали 11 прокомментировали
I'd hoped this issue would have been fixed by now but it appears that it's not a very popular problem, and so I've decided to take it upon myself to provide the correct information to get it looked at. I have found a few other forum posts with the exact same issue, so I hope this helps you all too.
Here is the required information;
- Huawei P20 Pro - EE network, UK
- Android 8.1.0: Huawei's EMUI build, version CLT-L09 220.127.116.11(C782)
- Swiftkey version: 18.104.22.168
- Steps to reproduce:
- When typing in the standard layout QWERTY keboard, if pressing the "123" key in the very bottom-left of the keyboard, immediately and swiftly followed by punctuation such as a question mark (on the symbol/number layout that appears), the keyboard acts as though the "enter" key in the very bottom-right of the symbol keyboard is pressed before the punctuation you selected, despite not pressing it at all. This means that a new line begins before your punctuation, and it shouldn't. For example, if attempting to quickly type the word "What?" on the keyboard, you will get this instead:
- I have added a link below to a screen-recording of the issue. In the video, you will see the "?" and the "enter" keys both light up as though both are being pressed, however only the "?" is actually being pressed. What you should see is "What?", there should not be a new line added before the "?". This happens with other punctuation also, but as the "?" is the most frequently used, I thought I'd go with that for the video.
- Link: https://vimeo.com/312434866
Importantly: This error does NOT happen if you restore the Swiftkey application to its original version via the Google Playstore. The issue only begins when updating the application, and so the bug must have inadvertently been included recently. I can't remember when the issue started, but it has been a few months and a handful of updates, and the issue still remains.
I hope this information is sufficient to locate and fix this bug, it's a real nut-ache for me as it happens 95% of the time I use punctuation after a word.
[Feature Request] Turn of auto-space after prediction4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Dear guys of Swiftkey,
Please just be considerable of what so many people want from you since over 2 years now - just do us all the kind favour and implement this feature that can' t be so hard to implement developerwise... Just implement an easy option to shut off this autospaces that are annoying for soo many people and it' s what so many people want.
Don' t you just realize, that this is a really major request? You should also consider that really many people must be annoyed by this feature missing, who each day loose their nerves and useful time backspacing this additional spaces and just don' t want to take this efford to find out how to contact you and to write you such a message like us in this forum... Don' t you think they do just find this a pity that this small missing annoying feature is putting your for the rest perfectly customizable and greatly working virtual keyboard tool into a bad light just for such a small additional efford from your side?
I just don' t want to sound rude to you at all, and ask you politely to implement this feature. It' s about time this issue will be fixed. It should be also in your interest to improve your great app further somehow...
P. S. : Please don' t consider this as a double post - I wrote a similiar comment into another Thread about the same issue - where there where so many people asking you for this feature implementation, that they filled out 4 long forum pages with this request to you asking you for this since whole two years.

Quick access to plain text emoticons4 проголосовали 1 комментарий
don't know if this has already been asked, cannot find it in the forum search. The thing is I'm an old guy, I've started chatting when we still had the BBSs and Internet was almost unknown. Because of that I hate all those damn emojis, all that bitmap wasting just to show stupid faces, and silly objects, and flags and who knows what other weird stuff. So, is there a way to quick access the text-only emoticons, ie, those you can type by just using brackets, two colon and the like :-) :-/ :-(
Previous versions, I could keep the Enter key pressed and at least a top row with a clock icon appeared, and from there I could see my last typed emoticons. Now, text emoticons are not under the clock anymore and the text emoticons tab :-) is just the last one, and it's very impractical to access it this way. Can the order of those tabs be changed? Could you bring the text emoticons back to the history tab?
Thanks in advance for the help.

[Feture request] Enable password Keyboard manually4 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали

So many themes, but not one that looks good4 проголосовали 3 прокомментировали
I have several issues with the SwiftKey themes:
1. There are lots of themes, but most of them feature the exact same key layout with another background. These 'themes' should not be listed as separate themes, but as variations of a theme. The most sensible thing to do to get some structure in this mess, is creating several keyboard layouts (i.e. with rectangular keys, rounded corners, no border,...), then let the user choose whether or not to display secondary symbols on the keys, and then offer color options.
2. There is no reason to put the SwiftKey logo in plain sight on the spacebar. I know which keyboard I'm using, and I 'm happy to tell other people if they ask, but I don't want your logo all the time in my sight. Put it in the '+'-menu if you absolutely need to show it somewhere.
3. There are almost no beautiful themes. I know this is very subjective, and yes, there are themes with balloons and fireworks as background images, and I can even use a custom photo,... But to me, a perfect keyboard is the keyboard that is not "in your face"; it's a keyboard that you don't even notice using. It should be clean, and have no showy interface elements. These themes are (almost) not available to choose from. The only theme that comes close to this, is 'Minimal material light', but even in a 'minimal' theme, you couldn't stop using colors and painted the shift, backspace, enter, emoji and symbols keys lilac.
Please get rid of the nineties keyboard layouts and introduce some modern ones, and make them fully customizable.

Japanese Keitai input4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Please add the feature to turn off the old obsolete Keitai multiple tap input for Japanese and use Flick ONLY. Gboard allows you to do this. It is such a pain whenever you want to enter hiragana twice you have to wait and it ruins the flow. I've made so many mistakes because of this so I'm forced to use Gboard. But I'd really like it for SwiftKey to add this and it should be a really easy thing to implement
Smarter capitalization of "I"4 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
This has been asked for about a year ago, but I'll try again... I've enabled two languages in the SwiftKey (beta) app. My native tongue and English. Switching between the two is seamless, which I enjoy, but the app keeps capitalizing my I's in my mother tongue as well (where "i" is a standalone word that shouldn't be capitalized mid-sentence). It would be great if the app could for example look at the word before "i" and then suggest capitalizing only if the word is English.
For now I have to manually correct it, which takes a lot of time in the long run.
