Keyboard to small after update С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
Swiftkey not working with Twitter-1 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I have Swiftkey version 126.96.36.199
I have Twitter version 8.67.0-release 00
I have a Samsung S20 Ultra 5G (UK version) with Android 10
For some months now I am unable to use the Swiftkey board with Twitter.
As soon as I go to type the keyboard vanishes and does not come back.
How do I fix this please?
How do I stop the space after hyphen?0 проголосовали 3 прокомментировалиI've started working on documents with a lot of numbers, which often use negative numbers. How do I stop the automatic space between hyphen (-) and the number from happening? I tried searching in the settings and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off. It's annoying to have to back space every time.
Android: SwiftKey typing, no output1 голос 4 прокомментировали
I am getting frequent (multiple times per day) where I am typing on swiftkey and I see the prediction forming, but no output in the actual text field I was typing in. Switching to any other keyboard and changing back (without typing anything in the other keyboard) restores functionality, but it's pretty annoying and it's getting more frequent.
faulty key layout English (US)? С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийI just installed SwiftKey, and detected that long pressing X, will produce £ as default, should it not be $ as default since it's the US, not the UK keyboard layout?
Keyboard font size0 проголосовали 1 комментарийI have a compact phone. Will swiftkey introduce an "increase keyboard font size" function, without increasing the keyboard buttons? Swiftkey (and other apps I've looked) at all simply increase overall keyboard & button size but in my phone it takes up too much screen space, restricting functionality - too little typed text is visible etc. There is plenty of room on the standard keys / buttons for a larger font. I don't care if it makes the appearance "ugly" I just need functionality. Its a bit like a car designer fitting a tiny steering wheel because it "looks nice". It may do but it's hard to steer! Thanx

font is "outline" (ex: Pumpkin)0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
Hi - for reasons unknown to me - and in the past this was NOT the case (but it is now) certain themes have fornts that are 'outline' (inside of font is blank) - which I find very annoying - example 'Pumpkin' I would like it to have a SOLID font - like most themes.
ALSO - most charachters in Pumpkin are not the 'amber' color indicated - but rather white - only Shift, backspace, emoji and search are the 'amber' color - this is not as much annoying as the 'outline' font issue - but it still does not fully represent the 'Pumpkin' theme as it used to.
Any solutions? (am using Android 10 on a galaxy S20-FE)
Can't remove words from dictionary0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
Keyboard woks fine, but as other users, I can' termove a word form my dictionary.
Long press and remove does not work: the word is still there.
Is there some official page to report a bug or is microsoft too big to bother, as usual?
Where is the damn semi-colon?! С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийI cannot for the life of me find where the semi-colon is on my SwiftKey keyboard! It's literally driving me crazy. I found a post where someone else asked and someone replied saying to long press N or the ",!?" buttons, but it's NOT there. And yes, I've went thru the "123", both pages, and it is NOT there!
Feature request: Don't remove space in number pad0 проголосовали 0 прокомментировали
Have an option to not remove preceding space when using Number Pad entry to put a period in.
This would be very useful for math and in some cases, IP address abbreviations ("The router is .1 and the DNS server is .2")
I love the behavior of the period key in the normal text entry, but the number pad could invite expectation of different behavior. To expand on this idea, maybe other "autocorrect" features might be disabled in the Number Pad mode.
Doppelte Buchstaben bei Huawei P30 lite0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
ich nutze ein Huawei P30 lite (Modell MAR-LX1B, Build 10.0.0.290, Android 10, EMUI 10.0.0). Sehr oft erscheinen bei der Eingabe Buchstaben doppelt (z.B. Eingabbe), obwohl ich die Buchstaben auf der Swiftkeytastatur definitiv nur einmal eingegeben habe.
Problem with capital letters0 проголосовали 1 комментарийHello, When I start writing a text, the shift button is automatically activated so that the first letter, of the first word, of the first sentence is capitalized. But for some time now, this button has been automatically activated in shift lock and therefore my whole sentence is in capital letters, which is annoying and wastes time and comfort. Is there a parameter to change so that the shift key no longer locks automatically but only remains for the first letter?

Changing size in landscape mode0 проголосовали 0 прокомментировалиHello, your keypad is really nice and I like it. I have got Huawei Mate 10 Pro with Android 10 and unfortunately I met with one problem. Keypad size in portrait mode is perfect and with constant size, but in landscape mode is size changing. Please, check video, it shows this problem https://youtu.be/7WqGrbjJfdc As you can see, firstly I am in landscape mode with keyboard size which I set, secondly I moved into the portrait mode and when I moved back to the landscape mode, then is keyboard size changed and is so big. I hope that you will find solution and in next updates it could be solved
Add custom keyboard layout / propose new layout1 голос 0 прокомментировали
SwiftKey is my keyboard of choice for my Samsung S20 phone. I recently started using Dex in parts of my day job, and as a programmer I use Vim and have my finger muscle memory quite settled for Norwegian Dvorak. Unfortunately I can only find English Dvorak available as a choice in SwiftKey, but on both OSX and Linux are Norwegian Dvorak available as default (and easy to install on Windows), would this be possible to add to SwiftKey as well?
Not having my usual keyboard layout available in Dex makes it much harder to adopt it even more in my day job. My ultimate goal is to completely remove the need for a personal computer, and only use my phone for my programming job. To do this I need keyboard layout I know.
I am willing to contribute quite a lot of effort to make this possible, if it is something I could add myself. There are many open source repositories with the layout already specified in Xml and other layout formats: https://www.google.com/search?q=Norwegian+dvorak+github
Ability to choose long-press letter options С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийI think this isn't too farfetched. Basically, I want the user to be able to select which diacritic appear for the letters they long press. For example, "Ǥ" appearing when I long press G. I know there are language packs which include such diacritics, but I'm currently developing a writing system which relies on the following diacritics: Ŧ, Ƶ, Đ, Ħ, Ǥ, ẞ, Ɛ, and Ɔ. Obviously there should be a limit per letter on the keyboard, so I wouldn't add 100 different diacritic, but I'm sure the developers can set a maximum limit for such a thing. The way it could be done is allowing the user to either add a "custom" keyboard layout, similar to QWERTY, AZERTY, etc, or modify the existing layouts just by choosing which diacritics appear upon long pressing a button.

Problem with SwiftKey on mobile forum С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
I use SwiftKey as the keyboard on my phone. It has the option to swipe when typing or to tap letters individually. It also has predictive text to finish half-typed words and to get suggestions for the next word in the sentence you're writing.
When I'm on the forums (mobile theme), when I'm typing a post using the swipe feature, it types double words, likelike thisthis. But it doesn't do that when I'm tapping individual letters or using predictive text to finish my words.
This doesn't happen on any other app or website. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem? Good
Multi language С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийI enable 3 languages (English, Spanish, German) and use swipe, which I realize is hard, but it has become almost unusable in the last 2 months with a really low prediction rate. I can also no longer delete unwanted predictions by long pressing them, they come right back. Has something fundamentally changed?

Voice typing С ответом-4 проголосовали 1 комментарийHello, Before you've used Google voice typing but now you're using Microsoft's I guess. The issue is that it doesn't have an ability to set more languages for voice typing.

Combine Android & Windows touch keyboard databases?0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
Is it possible to use the writing database from the Android account/SwiftKey on the Windows 10 touch screen keyboard? I'm asking because I'm logging in to SwiftKey on Android with a Google account, and to Windows obviously with an Outlook.com account. The Windows keyboard doesn't seem to learn much, unlike the Android SwiftKey, which is brilliant and has learn in over 10 years pretty much everything I ever write.
So how to use the brilliant Swiftkey database on the Windows touch screen keyboard?
Allow customization of characters on alternative keyboard. (numeric/ special characters) С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийSwiftKey could allow customization of special characters showed on numeric keyboard. Note that special characters are very related to each user special needs. Also, sometimes user needs some few alphabetic characters when using numeric alternative keyboard. Passwords are a typical case where it occurs. Regular characters (a to x) could be accessed thru long press on this keyboard and this will eliminate the need to go back and forth on regular and numeric keyboards. The layout on numeric keyboard offers enough slots to do it. Another problem is that the current version changes the special characters to another one when long pressed without any hint of which caharcater will be used. This is a mess
Can not give up typing after a key long press С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарийAfter long pressing a key user must choose any of the popes up characters. Sometimes usera make a mistake and just wants to give up and this is not possible. Auwift key should show on alternative character list a slot that allows user to cancel the operation. Alternatively it can allow a movement such as moving to space bar to indicate the operation to be canceled.

Voice typing keeps cutting off in Google Docs - SwiftKey on Android С ответом0 проголосовали 1 комментарий
About a week ago (about Sept. 25, 2020), my Google Voice Typing, which I use with SwiftKey (now owned by Microsoft), stopped working. The microphone stayed on in listening mode for only about two to three seconds (depending on my device), unless I kept talking rapidly and unnaturally without any pauses, almost as though I were reading a book for one of those speeded up commercials. If I paused at all, or stopped to think briefly, the microphone would shut off, and I'd have to tap it again to continue. Sometimes it seems like it doesn't hear me at all after I tap 'Tap to start', or maybe just hears a few words, stops listening in the middle of a sentence, and then stops a few seconds afterwards, as though I had stopped speaking. It never used to work like this… I was able to use it very efficiently to compose writings on Google Docs. I would be able to pause from 5 to 10 seconds before continuing speaking.
I wonder if the speech buffer is filling up, and that's turning off the microphone, and then it stops a few seconds later because it's not hearing anything anymore.
This degradation happened about the same time on all my Android devices where I used Voice Typing. I noticed that I was asked to agree to permissions again when this problem started, and the user interface also changed, so I think that this happened because of a faulty upgrade.
I haven't yet found anyone else complaining about this happening recently. I also wonder if it's some app I installed that uses the microphone, but I can't find anything so far.
Any ideas…? Thanks. David
P.S. I tried Voice Typing in Google Docs on my Chromebook laptop, and the microphone stays on for about 23 seconds after I stop talking. This is how it should work on my Android devices, and pretty much how it used to work, although I'm not sure it stayed on quite that long. I wish there were a setting on it so it would stay on indefinitely until you turned it off.
P.P.S. I just replaced SwiftKey with Gboard on my Android tablet. Now Google Voice Typing works just fine. In fact, it appears to stay on for a very long time before turning off, just the way I would like it to act. Strange that a Google update has just effectively destroyed one of Microsoft's SwiftKeys most attractive features… Hopefully, it was just an unfortunate coincidence.
And too bad that Gboard is apparently not as good as SwiftKey. I guess I'll find out...
