[Feature Request] keep the typed letters on prediction bar when switching language0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I use 2 languages, and it is annoying when after i type a few letters and realize i am not at the language i need, i switch the language and those not yet confirmed type letters on prediction bar are gone missing. Some other keyboards app will keep the unconfirmed typed letters when switching language and come out with new suggestion words rather than clearing them.
Apart form that, I would like to say big THANKS to SwiftKey team who finally responded to my feature request few weeks ago to add Fuzzy Pinyin support (Swiftkey Beta). Could be the implementation stage is already at the corner when i requested, whatever it is i am so happy to have this important feature added. This make SwiftKey to near perfect above the rest.
Changes in the japanese keyboard2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I want to suggest two certain changes in the japanese keyboard: The first and more important is the autocorrection bar. When you type a lot of time, sometimes the katakana will be gone, it will disappear, and you need to put katakana one by one, and it is very uncomfortable. My suggestion is to put the katakana first in the bar(and, if there is a kanji, after the kanji), because it will be easier to input it.
And the second one is only a visual change. Someone who used other apps and used a japanese keyboard surely saw a 9 buttons keyboard. Some other apps like Go Keyboard, or even the system keyboard for Windows Phone have it, and I love it, because you can put little イ without typing フィ, or something like that.
If this is the wrong place to post it, then, where I can suggest it?
Question mark / exclamation mark lag Oneplus 3T0 проголосовали 7 прокомментировали
I've been using Swiftkey for as long as I can remember and really like the app. But when I switched to the Oneplus 3T recently I noticed some lag when swiping the "period"-button to make either a questionmark or an exclamation mark. I've tried both the beta app and the regular one and both are the same. Does anyone notice the same thing? It works fine with all my other phones.
It's not a terrible lag, but still noticable and pretty annyoing.
Any tips for me?
I found this link https://vip.swiftkey.com/index.php?/topic/16888-swiftkey-lagging-update-64478-needs-more-info/#comment-87491 but couldn't find any more. That's the exact same issue as I have.
How to copy personalised predictions from previous phone to the new one?0 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
Its been a long time since I have been using SwiftKey keyboard. There are numerous personalised predictions which my keyboard gives to me and i love using them, it takes my typing experience awesome. The problem now is that I have just changed my phone and in my new phone in SwiftKey, since I have started using it a day or two, there are a very low number of personalised predictions. So, is there any way by which i can copy predictions from my previous phone to the new one.? Signing in with the same account and backing up from the previous one isn't working out. Please somebody help me. I'm missing my SwiftKey typing!

How to hide prediction bar on swift key keyboard
[Request] Permanent undocked split-view1 голос 0 прокомментировали
On my tablet my favorite keyboard layout is the split (thumb) view, combined with undocked mode. Thats simply perfect, because the space between the to key-halfes is free to see the real content.
The Problem is, that it always switches back to docked mode when i move it to near to the bottom.
Could we have a permanent undocked mode? Or at least make the empty space of the docked split-view transparent?

Voice button placement36 проголосовали 66 прокомментировали
SwiftKey is the best. The only thing I wish I could change was the voice dictation button placement. On big phones it is hard to get to. Give me the option to place on right side if screen (like gboard).
Unwanted auto-correct, even when turned off0 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
If I type a word that starts with a capital letter, followed by another word that starts with a capital letter, SwiftKey uncapitalises the first word! I have auto-correct and auto-capitalise turned off, but it doesn't seem to make any difference!
It's incredibly annoying! How do I stop it from doing this?
Flow to replace selected text - miscorrections4 проголосовали 4 прокомментировали
I've run into a particularly annoying bug.
Let's say I have already:
One two three
And I select (highlight) three:
One two three
And then, with "three" still selected, I swipe the word "seven":
One two seven
The word is now correct but the word in the middle of the prediction panel is still "three". If I press space or type any other character it miscorrects "seven" back to "three":
One two three
This is particularly noticeable in Chrome. When I tap the URL bar while already on a page, whatever the current URL is will be pre-selected for me. So let's say I want to search for "happy cats". If I swipe "happy", I get "happy" but the middle suggestion is "I". So if I swipe or type "cats" next, it becomes: "I cats". In the past week I have run into this SO many times as it hijacks my attempts to Google in Chrome.

Estonian keyboard layout0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
Would it be possible to change Estonian QWERTY layout and put the letter "ö" under a separate key? It's rather crucial while writing in Estonian to use the letter separately from the letter "o" under what it currently resides.
With best regards.
FR: Fix double space everywhere (after user mistake)0 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
I'd like SwiftKey to fix double spaces everywhere.
I often make those kind of mistakes and I like when it fixes some of the spacing, but sometimes I edit a word before punctuation and make an extra space by mistake - that's what I need fixed.
And generally, when it detects double space where one shouldn't be, it should fix it.
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout9 проголосовали 15 прокомментировали
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
Gesture input2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
In the gesture input section there are only two options: flow and gestures. I don't want to use any of them since they cause me some problems while I'm typing on my Xperia c4 device. Please add "None" option for those like me. By the way, thank you for developing such fantastic app.

Using SwiftKey with a Pixel C physical keyboard0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I've used SwiftKey (and SwiftKey Neural) for a few years on several devices. Recently I got hold of a Pixel C and the accompanying physical keyboard, both of which are great.
However, I've noticed that the "..." button on the keyboard (which brings up symbols etc has no effect when the default keyboard is SwiftKey. That is with GBoard, touching "..." gives me access to all the extra keys and symbols. With Swiftkey it just acts as a Right-Alt key.
Is there a stetting anywhere in SwiftKey?
Is it something you're aware of and are working on?
Is it something you're aware of but can do nothing about due to Google having something locked down?
Any advice would be awesome, thanks. I have the beginnings of an idea in the back of my head to use IFTTT to switch to GBoard when the device sees the physical board, and back to SwiftKey when not...

Hindi predictions on English keyboard, is devnagri necessary?0 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
So, recently my SwiftKey keyboard was updated. There is a devnagri script keyboard option as well as the QWERTY English that I usually use. I use a lot of Hinglish in my messages, sure, but I'm not so happy when the English keyboard simply changes the words into devnagri. If I need to I can simply shift over using the spacebar to the devnagri script keyboard. But for the script to hijack my English posts is incongruous, inconvenient, and honestly, frustrating, especially because perfectly acceptable English words are transcribed unnecessarily and SwiftKey becomes not so swift anymore. That's not fun when I have to write emails or text messages in a professional capacity.
What can I do to make this not happen anymore? Are there settings to switch the transcriptions off? Is that possible?
[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji3 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Hey I had an idea for your keyboard.
A custom emoji tab where we can add a select number of our favorite emoji for quick selection. SwiftKey is the top of the crop and this feature would enhance our typing capabilities even more. Thanks!
New poster. I hope this is in the correct place. Mods please advise if necessary :)
Keyboard Disappearing Except for Predictions0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
- LG V20
- Android 7.0 (Nougat)
- Swiftkey 126.96.36.199
Twice in the past day or so, Swiftkey has suddenly minimized to just the predictions, the keyboard presumably off the bottom of the screen.
One time, I reset the phone, and that restored it. I wouldn't be here posting, but just a few minutes ago it happened again. This time I disabled and re-enabled Swiftkey and that fixed it...but if this keeps happening, I obviously will not find it worth having to do that each time.
I don't know how to reproduce this, per se. When it happens, it is that way in all apps. Both times it was initially in the AT&T default texting app, but that's probably coincidence, because it's what I use most.
There's Unused Space in the Space1 голос 1 комментарий
The space key takes up the space of ➍ keys but has zero functions except, ugh, space and the language switch button which doesn't seem necessary nowadays when the keyboard works in English just fine (with predictions and all) even with a foreign language keyboard always on.
It's space not very well used, is it not? My proposal is that it would get a new look and new functionality: In lieu of one, we would get four buttons which all still do work as the space button but each of them would get their unique secondary functions. One's function — tongue switch. There rest is up to you. ✌
Feature Requests - User viewable dictionary19 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
I use SwiftKey for years now and I've got rid of most of the weird suggestions now, but it took extremely long and I had to remove lots of words every day for many years. And still I sometimes get suggestions like
"gaucho Hagan Hitchens Cecil Barco barstool Megan yap naval brouhaha..."
that nobody needs. And that after removing thousands of words from the dictionary.
I know that the dictionary must be somewhere in SwiftKey's app data, since it has to be saved offline somewhere. But normal users can't see/edit some binary file in a protected folder, so my suggestion is:
Please make the list of words that are currently in the dictionary available to edit in some form, maybe as a text file (although I doubt it could be opened with the RAM of a phone), maybe as a list with checkboxes to delete many entries at once, maybe in another form.
