Just got a Pixel 2XL, running the latest Android 8.0 build with the September security patch. On the latest SwiftKey beta, it won't let me log into my Facebook for personalization. It says error, not logged in please try again. I'm logged in to the Facebook app, and SwiftKey never prompts me to log in to Facebook in the pop-up. Anyone able to help?

No way to create a slide up/down effect for Android?4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
I always asked myself why SwiftKey keyboard doesn't show up and hide in an elegant way and now even more when we have Nougat/Oreo with beautiful screen transitions, material design, etc.
Isn't possible to elaborate a sliding effect just like iPhone and even the Samsung default keyboard?
After testing other keyboards in the last days, I just realized that, although this is something minor, it's the type of thing that makes usability more pleasant, more fluid, smooth. So much better than just appearing and disappearing suddenly.
Don't know if it's something thought to reproduce in lower end phones, but could be something available in settings at least.

While trying to login to my swiftkey account, when I try to use my Google account, and it just loops back to browser. I tried it with my Microsoft account as well and it just keeps looping back to browser.
I'm using an LG V20, if that is a factor.
How to disable multi lingual keyboard?4 проголосовали 10 прокомментировали
I really love this keyboard.. The thing that drawing me out of using it was the multi lingual typing, if I choose English & Malayalam. The two languages clubbed together in one instance. I had terrible experience with that. Because, somany mistakes occur as both languages were live. So could you kindly give an option to use English keyboard, when using Native language. Thank you.

ط and ظ
I ask this request many times but nobody answer me. I don't know why a language layout is different on ios and android. Please make persian layout on android like persian layout swiftkey on ios.

I concurr with the accidental input of the period which is extremely annoying. What about double tapping the space bar as option for a period which would disable at the same time the period button but leave the option for the 3 other punctuations? Just a thought.

Can't remove learned suggestions in Japanese input mode4 проголосовали 9 прокомментировали
To remove incorrectly learned suggested words in English input mode, such as misspellings, long pressing the suggestion from the prediction bar correctly gives the option to remove that word.
However, when in Japanese input mode, long pressing a suggestion simply inputs the text of that suggestion.
Is there any way to individually remove incorrect suggestions in Japanese input mode?

SwiftKey Japanese flick4 проголосовали 3 прокомментировали
I'm a diehard SwiftKey user and I frequently type in Japanese. I hate Romaji keyboards and I'm forced to use Google Japanese Input, the problem with that is their keyboard is small, especially the qwerty keyboard, which I use for quickly typing English when I'm mostly using Japanese, and typing in English on Google Japanese Input is painful, it can only predict words as you start to type them, correctly, it can't fix your typos... I miss keys a lot, SwiftKey is a life saver. Why in the world is there no flick input for Japanese? It already has the dictionary and kanji from the romaji keyboard, I've seen rumors dated around 2014 about a flick keyboard scouring the internet. What do I have to do to get a good keyboard?

Unwanted comma's4 проголосовали 21 прокомментировали
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.
Semicolon and other less common punctuation4 проголосовали 8 прокомментировали
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.

Mappable Keys, Long-Presses & Long-Press Presets?4 проголосовали 2 прокомментировали
Hi. I'm giving SwiftKey a very thorough beta test, and want to provide my feedback.
Literally one thing is driving me nuts, and that is the inability to map the character we desire into each key's long-presses. I see people all over complaining non-stop about where keys are positioned, and yet SwiftKey promotes itself as highly customizable with a target audience of those who are transitioning from default OS keyboard configurations, and have often trained themselves to use those configurations. I don't know about you, but I'm a tech guru and it takes "many months" of continuous work to remap my brain on the position of where the special characters are located.
I believe there should be, first of all, Presets on what Samsung keyboard, Android keyboard, and all the other default OS keyboards have mapped for long-presses. SwiftKey can choose to keep their configuration in their preset and even make that the default configuration, but I'm here to say that the absence of this feature is one of the largest reasons people do not want to transition to SwiftKey.
Second, there needs to be the ability to map long-presses to whatever characters we desire. More prudently, the ability to map even the MAIN keys to what we desire. Imagine no more disgruntled hate speeches on why "this or that is not positioned there"
Everyone cannot agree on the same configuration. Please consider this in your future updates.
Change capitalization of last word with shift4 проголосовали 10 прокомментировали
In older an older version of swiftkey I was able to change capitalization of the last word. Now pressing shift changes the capitalization of the next word. Since swiftkey is not very good in predicting capital letters in German I always have to manually select the last words again and then change it afterwards.
Is it possible to change that behavior?
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.
SwiftKey has become a nightmare4 проголосовали 18 прокомментировали
I've been using SwiftKey for years now, and it has become more and more painful, to the point that I'm a meme to my friends now due to the way I type if I don't read twice before sending.
First, it looks like SwiftKey went from correcting my typos to considering that my typos are the way words are supposed to be written. So it corrects the right words into wrong.
Second, the French corrector is pretty broken to begin with, there are even tenses it don't know. So I have to manually rewrite verbs, even if I had them right the first time, because SwiftKey mess with it.
Last of all, since I switched to a new A5 2016 recently, the keyboard sometimes erases one to two words while I'm typing, for no reason.
I also have the "SwiftKey closing while I'm typing" problem I saw elsewhere, happens on Textra and Facebook Messenger.
I use the last beta of the app, with swift off because it made the keyboard even more laggy and unpredictable.
I wanted to change app, but yours is the best in terms of customization and key placement.
As you could have guessed I'm French. Strangely enough (?) I had absolutely no issue typing this message. Is French the problem? Or the way your app learnt me? Both?

Where'd my beloved search function go?3 проголосовали 0 прокомментировалиI know that you have decided "Hi, thank you for your interest in Search.

We are sorry if this comes as disappointing news, we will instead focus our development efforts in other exciting areas of your keyboard." But how about we get an explanation as to why you decided that? If it's the thing about bing, that doesn't matter, I used chrome in my search function anyway and I think many others did as well.
