SwiftKey needs to address this issue soon!! Number 1 complaint is the size of the spacebar. People think it's either to big or small or the length isn't correct. Obviously it's not 1 size fits all. So please stop ignoring us!!!!

[Bug] Keyboard size auto switches to medium2 проголосовали 5 прокомментировали
I am using an LG G7 running Android 8.0 Oreo. I use the Large size keyboard, but occasionally I'll notice I keep pressing incorrect keys. I'll check the size and for some reason it is on Medium without me ever changing it! I don't know how this could be happening as I only use SwiftKey on one device, so I don't think syncing is an issue. Any ideas? Thanks!

It would be awesome if you add the ability to increase the font size into the keys in the keyboard, because letters looks small in some languages (here in Arabic). Thanks in advance.

Problem with Vietnamese input method2 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
After the update that said "Improved Vietnamese Telex", typing English while in Vietnamese mode has been a pain in the a** for me. I don't want to switch to English mode just to type some simple word than switch back to Vietnamese. Back then, I could just type like this: "database"
data -> "dât" + abase -> "database" (dataabase -> "database")
but now if if type letter "b" after having typed "a" twice, the word would revert to "dâtb"
dataa -> "data" + b -> "dâtb"
, which is not a normal behavior when compared to the input method on Windows computer. And the suggestion bar is not smart enough to suggest that i use "database".
All in all, I want to know if there is a way to revert to the way Swiftkey handle Vietnamese before, or the dev team some how revert the behavior of the app.
Typing. 5L is hard, SwiftKey likes to move the period.2 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
I don't want to turn off autocorrect, but I do want to stop the period sliding back after I try to purposefully put it somewhere.
It demolishes URLs, go to Google. Com
Or, my grandpa has an old Ruger. 22
Or, man this German beer is good, it even comes in a. 5L!
I poked at the settings, but found nothing. I'm pretty sure there used to be a setting for it, but now I can find it not.

Issues with SwiftKey Doubling text in certain inputs on the web2 проголосовали 4 прокомментировали
When typing on dartpad.dartlang.org, SwiftKey causes the words to double, whether selecting a correction or typing straight. Even deleting the double causes it to double or triple as soon as the next word is moved to .
Typing "This is a test" yields "ThisThisIsaThisThisIsatest"
This happens even when using a physical keyboard with SwiftKey attached as the onscreen keyboard.
This issue does not happen with other keyboards or on other OSs.

Pinyin Input and Missing Pinyin Accents (1st and 3rd)2 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
I have read previous posts about this but still no resolution.
I am learning Chinese and I have a need to type Pinyin, such as: Wǒ jīntiān gǎnjué hěn hǎo
Currently the English language does not allow fto enter these two accents ā AND ě. (1st and third)
I cannot use the Chinese language as that is design for entering Hanzi characters.
My only option is to swap to Google Pinyin Input Keyboard app that is horrible and not simple to swap back and forth between Swiftkey and Google keyboards.
I have two questions:
1. Is there a way for me to enter the two missing accents: ā AND ě.or is there a plan in place at Swift key to inlcude these on a long-press?
2. Is there a really quick way for me to switch between keyboards?
Suggestion: the ability to use flow to move the flashing typing cursor.2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
In short this is the best mobile keyboard i know of, the only thing it seems to lack is an easy and compact way to move the typing cursor around the sentence, so maybe being able to use flow to move the cursor instead of using it to type would be fitting for those who don't use it, or at least to be able to replace the coma and emoji buttons with arrow keys as they are kind of useless because of the key right next to enter.
Physical Keyboard2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
sometimes I use a Blutooth keyboard and SwiftKey detects that properly but still leaves a suggenstions/settings bar at the bottom. I could already switch off suggestions for the physical keyboard but how to I hide this bar. I don't need it with a physical keyboard and it takes away quite some screen space.

Request shortcut swipe to insert the apostrophe2 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
Please, add a shortcut swipe to insert the apostrophe widely used in the Italian language.
To do this it would be enough to add a swipe from the consonants to the apostrophe, as for example, it has been made by the Swype keyboard for many years.This addition, will make happy all Swiftkey italian users.

Swift Key needs a separate button for foreign language keyboards. It's dumb to put it on space bar. Put another button like android, or I won't use it.

WhatsApp Text Entry Issues2 проголосовали 3 прокомментировали
Since the beginning of February '18, I have experienced an issue when using SwiftKey with WhatsApp. When I first open the App I cannot enter text using the SwiftKey keyboard. Any attempt to do so, even using the 'autofill' suggestions fails. If I close the App and then try again it will often work, but only for that one occasion. I have tried reinstalling both SwiftKey and WhatsApp with no effect. If I revert to the HTC keyboard (I have an HTC One M7) it is fine. I notice that there was an issue like this reported back in 2017 but no recent forum entries. It would be good to hear of a fix as I miss my SwiftKey App.
SPACEBAR/PERIOD2 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
The spacebar being too small and EVERYONE hitting the "." period key has been the biggest complaint about SwiftKey that I have seen here. All apps have their issues and the reason for having support forums is to communicate these issues in order to better your product. I'm trying to figure out what is more frustrating, typing. Like. This. All. The. Time, or the fact that your support team is outright ignoring this common issue. I read through other forum posts about different subjects just to see if there are any SwiftKey Team responses to verify if there is even a support team. There are responses, but it seems as though SwiftKey picks and chooses what to respond to. If this issue is currently being addressed, than communicating that to your users would just be common sense. Since this has been an ongoing issue for so long, one can only assume that the service level of SwiftKey is nonexistent and just shows your customers that communicating issues here is irrelevant. There are three main factors that make or break productshu:
3. Support for the product
SwiftKey is failing at 2 out of 3 and as a business owner, I would concider this to be unacceptable customer service. Having a common problem is one thing, fixing it is another, but failing to even acknowledge it is a perfect reason for another company to develop a keyboard app that knows how to retain their users. I will personally look into other keyboard apps that use their support forums to better their products and be glad to privately share my findings with all the other ignored and frustrated users here. The building blocks to any successful product is the satisfaction of the people using it.
How to remove the suggestion bar.2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I would like to remove the suggestion bar from my keyboard. I never use it and it takes up screen space. I would also like to remove the "space after comma" function since I always en up making double spaces and I have to remove them later. Also its harder to add commas to existing text.

the order of the long-pressed secondary characters2 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I use the SwiftKey keyboard on Huawei mate 10 pro. In Hungarian, therefore, because of the difficulty of our language, we use a lot of accented characters, but in the case of the pop-ups of the ignored character without the accent, the accentuated equivalent of the character does not jump, so it is lengthy to enter the accented characters. I really like SwiftKey and I'm already accustomed to it, so I just do not want to replace it because I can not customize some things at the moment, is it possible to develop it and complement it with such an option?

Questionmark, exclamation mark etc are hard to speed type now.2 проголосовали 4 прокомментировали
I can't be the only one who has noticed this in the later updates. I'm typing with "130~ms" in the settings, so I'm a fairly fast typer.
When it comes to "!,.?", if you go too fast now, and not precise enough, these keys don't follow.
The entire box these sit in is huge as well, not the "small window" they used to be in.
Transparent keyboard2 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Kindly make a transparent keyboard. Thus would be a great feature. I use the SwiftKey Beta and the space bar in normal mode is too close to the virtual home button key on my phone that I keep accidentally returning to the home page whenever I am chatting or typing an email. This can get very frustrating. A transparent keyboard which can Float a few millimeters away from the home button would be great making it easier to read what's under the keyboard. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Make Transliteration an option, not a burden2 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
I have seen many threads dealing with this issue since the introduction of the "transliteration feature"
The point of a feature is to make things more efficient in all cases. If there's a situation that a feature can be considered a flaw it should be addressed.
As a lot of people have already mentioned, transliteration is a great tool by itself but when you are using multiple languages there are a lot of situations where it is simply in the way.
Why do you want to force a feature on everyone without paying attention to those who are having a hard time using your keyboard because it's now barely efficient for them? Why not add a simple toggle to let users enable this feature and disable it when they don't need it?
There are a lot of people who are using SwiftKey to write in two, three or more languages at the same time and transliteration feature gets in their way. The point of SwiftKey was to be the gold standard of Android keyboards but not anymore, unless you give people the choice to customize their experience. Let this tool work for them, not force them to change their everyday communication habits just to be compatible with your keyboard.
Using Swiftkey in Browser/typing in a forum, spacebutton becomes random letters.2 проголосовали 6 прокомментировали
Latest version of Swiftkey is a nightmare when typing in Forums in Chrome(at least).
When trying to type certain letters and/or make a space, you'll end up with random letters on the keyboard instead. Trying to "finish" a word via pressing space will instead "type" for example: " Hellb" instead of becoming "Hello".

I used SwiftKey on my iPhone 5s and there I was logged in via Facebook and on my new Android phone (Galaxy Note 8) I can't sign in with Facebook and so not get my data on the new phone.
Is there a solution for this; or maybe a work around?
