How do o change the font style
Please provide an option to turn off transliteration in Hindi because we don't always need it. Also transliteration causes huge delay when you type using swipe. When I turn off Hindi and then use swipe to type then there is no delay.
Hi, I have five languages active. Three of them (it, en, eo) use the latin alphabet, one is Russian and one is Japanese.
Before the most recent update (I believe on Aug 31th), they were divided into three keyboards in Swiftkey: it/en/eo, ja, ru. When I switched to Japanese, I still had the latin alphabet on the keys, but upon typing, I could compose Japanese words, the prediction came up with kana and kanji, and everything was fine.
After the most recent update, the stand-alone Japanese keyboard disappeared and Japanese got bundled with my three latin languages (now ja/it/en/eo). Now when I type Japanese words I do not really know how to switch from romaji to kana/kanji. No kana/kanji predictions appear.
I would appreciate help to solve this issue.
Let me know if there is any more information I can provide.
Thank you for your attention.
While typing numbers input in any app's PIN field, the keyboard lags and leaves a line trail.
this seems to be a bug in the emoticons button next to the Send button. This button on the default Samsung keyboard works fine but in SwiftKey, it crashes the keyboard and effectively bricks the phone.
Only work around I've found is to use a dedicated emoticons button that can be turned on in the SwiftKey settings.
I figured That on my New Samsung S8 - Swiftkey Not Working Properly & Sometimes even Not Responding (Android 7).When opening Chrome,WhatsApp for example.!
On All Apps,that requires anything to be typed in.Swiftkey Simply not Responding,only After 3-5 Attempts of typing.!
Rebooting My Phone & Reinstalling SwiftKey as well as even resetting the My phone to factory defaults and bringing in all my apps and settings again did not solve the issue. I find This Very very Annoying!
I am That very Close to simply Deleting SwiftKey from my Phone.!
Do you even Aware to This Bug/Problem?
There's Any Way to Solve This issue?!.
Waiting for Your Sincere Answer...
When I enter text, the last word is underlining while Swiftkey is active. If I send that email in that state, the underlining becomes part of the transmittal and looks really bad to my customers. What can I do? I don't need the underlining to know Swiftkey is looking at that word in normal usage.

GIFs are too big to actual send to anyone. Converts them back to regular messages after failed attempt.
This is the first time it's happened to me.
I don't need to talk about it a lot, because the video speaks for itself.

Recently I noticed that the question mark in arabic keyboard was rotated.
This one is english ? Open to left

The arabic one should be rotated
May I suggest here that the above mentioned option should be added?
It would be extremely helpful because in Poland when writing SMS messages with Polish tittles (ex. ą, ę, ł, ó) instead of ex. 1 SMS there goes 3 (Polish tittles so to say 'consume the capacity" of one SMS), which equals bigger price for texting.
Since my last phone update swiftkey misses about every second key input. The mobile does vibrate and the letter flashes on the keyboard as it is supposed to do, yet it doesn't show up in the text field.
I don't always have this error, it works fine for a couple of days, but doesn't go away until I deactivated swiftkey and waited a couple of hours, once it showed up. The timing seems to be random.
I am using swiftkey 126.96.36.199on a Nubia n1 nx541j with android 6.0
A reinstall didn't solve this issue.
this seriously annoys me to no end sometimes. I use German and English language and it happens so many times that whenever I press space for auto correct/complete it just fill in a word from the other language which makes no sense and it doesn't even exist in that way in the language I currently use.
I saw someone else half address this, but whenever I try to add a semicolon after using flow input I get a space been the last word and the punctuation. If I want to use a semicolon or make my own made-up-phrase, I either have to backspace the last letter of what I've swiped (flowed) so it knows to look at what comes next as individual characters, or use the arrow keys to back up after hitting that semicolon and backspace spaces. Same applies to hyphenated words or series of words, but there's no reason to have the semicolon/colon/hyphen or dash not but the end of the preceding word. Particularly with the semicolon. I tend to like my punctuation as a way to fragment what would be a run on sentence and other areas where it would be appropriate but SwiftKey wants there to be space on either side of the ";" character or when using hyphenations. It should always hug the word to the left like a comma would; this range is same idea applies to full-on commas as well: it wants to have a space on either side instead of jumping back to the end of the last word like typing a period would. Why not give some (slightly) more obscure punctuation and symbols the period and comma treatment where after flowing a word it auto-spaces, but if a period, comma, or second space is input next that keyboard will smartly insert the formatting and punctuation before the auto-space between words.
Another hiccup I have that's always a fight is, for example, I want to list a file extension, SwiftKey will fight me to the pain several times in a row to not have it try to reformat that section to a URL.
It's to the point that I will flow a word, [backspace], [backspace], retype last letter of word and then long-pressing the "n" key for my semicolon to be in the proper place.
Side note:if the keyboard has to autocorrect the second half of a hyphenated word or expression it will add a space between the hyphen and the word it fixed looking like "blahblib- blahblah", assuming it had to fix my 'blahblah' for me, when the goal was "blahblib-blahblah".
SwiftKey is still hands down the most robust, well-rounded keyboard and I want you guys to continue to dig in your heels, keep pushing the envelope, and retain that innovation and magic autocorrect advantage without it getting too bogged down and keep it first time user friendly!
Keep up the stellar work guys!
Also if you wanted to add gravy it'd be nice to have a way to flow on a larger screen (5.5" on my Pixel XL) when I'm manipulating the phone entirely with one hand without totally scrunching up the keyboard with the one-handed layout.
I have English, Chinese, Japanese and German enabled. I find the keyboard in general rather laggy for me, but nothing unbearable. The exception is Japanese, which I am virtually unable to use, both because of extreme lag and because the keyboard can't seem to handle simple phrases or words and will stop showing suggestions.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it an issue with the Japanese keyboard itself, or is it because SwiftKey is becoming overwhelmed by having to make predictions in four languages simultaneously? If it is the latter, would it be possible to switch off this function and switch languages manually? I understand that this is a vital function for many people, but I personally don't need to type in all four languages at once.
Thanks very much! :)
I've been a SwiftKey user since the very start of the app. I have used it in Android and iOS. One thing is missing: Why not let the user create their own theme? At least the ability to choose colors and fonts.
This would push your keyboard over the top!
Since (unknown update), the gesture mode swipe down to hide does not work in 99% of the tries. The keyboard tries to do anything, but hiding, types the first key the finger touches the moment it hits the display, without even starting a gesture recognition, or does whatever.
Please fix this, it's really annoying, because the damn keyboard has no close/hide button. There are thousand of forms which does not trigger a close button, for example when you want to write a rating on the Play Store, and the damn SwiftKey is in the foreground, over the input test field.
Asked a friend to try, and for him it's broken too.
Thought about using SwiftKey as my regular keyboard after the new flow update. But there are still some details I have problems with:
- spaces before or after using a hyphen and colon
- quick reply limitations on the lockscreen (I know, never gonna happen)
How can I install Turkish F keyboard?
In landscape mode, spacebar is too small.
I don't need any other keys to be larger except for the spacebar.

I recently updated my swift key app and it automatically switched my keyboard theme on update. I am now unable to switch it back to the One plus minimal dark theme. All other themes work other than this one.
Please can you explain why this is happening and how I can fix it.
