It would be nice to be able to select a darker keyboard theme that Swiftkey automatically switches to with the Android 10 System Dark theme.
I can't restore my list of saved words (my data)7 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
I used Swiftkey on my Xiaomi Mi5 for several years (more than 5 probably linked to my google account and recently switched to a Mi5, but when trying to retrieve my saved words (My data) from the previous smartphone, I am unsuccessful.
When trying to link with the google account I don't have any correct word predictions like my Mi5. I have already tried to switch to swiftkey beta, but also to no avail.
The odd thing is that by accessing the "Swiftkey data portal", going to "View data", I can see every list of saved words to export. But they do not appear on my android.
I'm really frustrated with that, and if I want to start over with a keyboard, I'll probably choose to migrate to another competitor that truly provides this feature.
Data not syncing even though it's available on data.swiftkey.com/view-data7 проголосовали 11 прокомментировали
As the title says, my predictions/sync has been broken for a few weeks now. Even though all my learnt words are available on data.swiftkey.com/view-data, nothing shows up as predictions on my phone.
SwiftKey isn't syncing my saved words.7 проголосовали 23 прокомментировали
Basically the title says all. I switched from the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S10 and logged into my SwiftKey account using my Microsoft account (the same as I did on my S7) and none of my words are transferred to the S10. I know SwiftKey still remembers them, because I checked the "View data" page on swiftkey.com and all of my added words are there. Why won't they sync to my SwiftKey app on my S10?
Device make and model: Samsung Galaxy S10
Device Android version: 9 Pie
Swiftkey version: 184.108.40.206
Steps to reproduce: Just login using the same account from the other device. A word that should be saved, I have to add all over again. Basically starting from scratch.
No special symbols displayed over the letters in incognito mode theme. Завершено7 проголосовали 7 прокомментировали
In new incognito mode there are is a problem with the theme- no special symbols are displayed over the letters ('(' over the letter 'k', ')' over the letter 'l' etc.). In all the other themes symbols are displayed correctly, but in incognito mode they are missing.
It is problematic because You would need to remember where the special characters are located on the keyboard to use them efficiently. Please either add an ability to modify the theme of the incognito mode, or add the symbols to the theme.
[Main Thread] Keyboard Letters Uneven [Known Issue] Завершено7 проголосовали 13 прокомментировали
I've used SwiftKey for years, but suddenly the keys are no longer in straight lines, but appear to be slightly raised or lowered, I assume that's where I usually hit the keys but it doesn't usually show that on my screen and I wish it wouldn't, it's very disconcerting. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't see a setting anywhere to turn it off, or understand why it happened in the first place. Unsure how to attach an image to this.

My keyboard arrow keys disappeared today. I did not change anything, nor is there an option for them!
Please bring them back!
Gif finder filters out "inappropriate" words7 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
Will SwiftKey ever implement a "bad word" filter toggle in the settings?
Currently, trying to search for gifs using...explicit or colorful language, only yields "No Search Results." This is silly at best, annoying at worst. Why the language filter?

[Feature request] Voice recognition WITHOUT Google С ответом7 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
Hi all. I've been using SwiftKey for a veeery long time and it's amazing. I really liked the voice integration but a while back I started to get away from Google products (yes, Android is from Google but you can strip quite a lot of their stuff from it) and I (sadly) discovered that after removing Google Search app the voice dictation stopped working.
SwiftKey is now owned by Microsoft and MS has it's own voice recognition. There is also a Common Voice project from Mozilla (https://voice.mozilla.org/) which should be more open/transparent (though they are only collecting data / training for now).
Having alternative voice input would be awesome!

emoji prediction defaults to male gender7 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
How can I change the default gender of the text prediction emojis? I.e. The gender of the suggested emoji is always male, how do I change that to female?
Word prediction only in selected language7 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
Is there a way to disable the multi language prediction? I have german and english installed and it's totally annoying that the word prediction uses both languages at the same time. This causes many false predicted words.
I only want to have predictions in the current active language. Since it is so easy to switch between the languages by swiping the space bar I don't need any pseudo intelligent language detection.
[Feature Request] Ability to change font size and markup text7 проголосовали 22 прокомментировали
At times there's need for changing font size or face (bold or italics etc) but I couldn't find a way to do it. Is it possible to do it?
Multiple Language Priority С ответом7 проголосовали 26 прокомментировали
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?
Japanese keyboard nearly unusable: anyone else?7 проголосовали 8 прокомментировали
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! :)

Search feature С ответом6 проголосовали 2 прокомментировалиI really used the search feature a lot and found it to be extremely convenient. I hope you guys will put the feature back in future updates cuz it's literally the only reason I went out of my way to install SwiftKey onto my new phone.
Search Tab С ответом6 проголосовали 11 прокомментировалиThere used to be a search icon on the top of the keyboard that'd take you to Google. Was that removed in the recent update? Or did I accidentally toggle it off? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
SwiftKey does not respect autocapitalize attribute in HTML input tag С ответом6 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
SwiftKey does not automatically turn off the capitalization on HTML input tags which feature autocapitalize=off. That is very annoying, many web apps use this to prevent unwanted automatic capitalization on certain inputs. SwiftKey ignores this.
See https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/04/autocapitalize for details.
White font on white background after the latest Swiftkey update when typing horizontally (from yesterday)6 проголосовали 7 прокомментировали
Hello Swiftkey Support,
I've been facing with a very annoying issue since the latest Swiftkey update from yesterday.
Suddenly and after this update, I'm not able to type anything on my messengers apps (WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Viber) when having my phone horizontally because Swiftkey changes the font into white color on white background, so basically I can't see what I'm typing.
Before this update, Swiftkey was working absolutely normally, I am absolutely sure because I've been always typing on my phone via horizontally position and the font was in black color and on white background.
This is happening only in case of horizontally typing. When I move my phone to vertical position, I can see white font on dark background, like it's supposed to be in normal way.
But when I move my phone with the same text again into horizontally position, Swiftkey changes by itself the font into white and on white background, so I can't see anything.
Could you please fix this because it's really annoying ?
I've been using Android 10 on my phone.
I've restarted my phone also and it didn't fix the Swiftkey issue. When I changed my keyboard to Gboard, everything is working normally, even in horizontally position.
Thank you very much.
Ability to use censored gifs6 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I realize that you want to try to keep everyone happy, but we should be able to use adult orientated gifs. As an adult, I am fully capable of knowing when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. A toggle that is turned off by default, but to allow us to turn them on would be great. Right now, I have to switch between keyboards to use them, which is obviously not the solution that I should have to use. Especially with such a great tool as this is :).
Force Dark mode issues6 проголосовали 10 прокомментировалиGreetings, I am having a challenge with the legibility of some of the keys of my keyboard when I put on "force Dark mode" this is the only app that I have a problem with and I pray that you resolve it. The keys are the spacebar, backspace, enter, shift key, left, right and down arrow keys, the search icon in the top bar specifically.

Installing on a new phone6 проголосовали 4 прокомментировали
On my old phone I used to have swiftkey and really enjoyed it. My phone died so I got a new one and today I installed swiftkey on it and logged in to the program. One thing I immediately noticed (and was disappointed with) was on my new phone is that all my suggestive words seem to be gone. What I mean is for work I send a lot of similar texts and it got to the point my phone would pretty much suggest the next word I intended to use because I had written that exact sentence so many times. I always saw the app boasting about how many words it had suggested and key strokes it had saved me. Since you have a profile you log into for the program I was hoping it was stored online or something to where these suggestive words would somehow "download" onto the new phone but so far it does not look like. Was there a file or something that was saved locally on the old phone i May be able to move over?
Reset phone, no personal words restored6 проголосовали 14 прокомментировали
I have been using sk since 2013 and have brought my predictions into new phones 2-3 times so I know my account has info. But when I restored this time I got none of my words that had been in my personal dictionary.
What do I need to do to get my predictions back?
