Symbol entry adds spaces wrongly Yanıtlandı0 oy 14 yorumThere is ZERO reason for a space to be inserted before a colon. Maybe some symbols are ok with an inserted space but never that one. I spend a lot of effort removing spaces added before dashes as well. This has been a problem for YEARS and I would like an explanation as to why you would insert spaces that have to be removed and why you haven't corrected this. I assure you, there is no justification for this keyboard behavior -- it would be much better for users to have to enter the spaces they want before symbols than to remove the ones they don't -- so please make a fix.

They have as far as I know never been included in SwiftKey.
They look like this « » and ought to be accessible from some special keys (by long-press).

Swipe left to delete gesture not working everytime Yanıtlandı1 oy 7 yorum
Swiping left to delete gesture isn't triggering consistently (I'm getting 3/10 successful gestures).
I'm observing this using a Pixel 5 with SwiftKey 184.108.40.206 (tried the beta as well which had the same problem too). Also been able to reproduce this in a Pixel 3a and Xiaomi Poco X3.

Haptic Feedback broken since update Yanıtlandı0 oy 2 yorum
Hello everyone, I updated my Swiftkey to version 220.127.116.11 and since then I do not have the standard android haptic feedback on my keystrokes anymore.
I tried to enable it via the settings in swiftkey, but only the swiftkeys own haptic feedback is working and I don't want to use those.
Using the setting "standard android vibration" doesn't do anything anymore. I also tried to restart the phone in case of a bug.
The system vibration via the samsung settings is enabled for all keyboards.
My android version is Android 10 with the latest security patch update from December.
Can't import my account, data, typing behavior, theme, etc. from old phone! Yanıtlandı1 oy 2 yorum
Problem: THREE different account IDs! I can't determine how to log into my old SwiftKey Account on my new Android phone!
Here is the problem: I've been logged into SwiftKey since 2017 when I got my last mobile phone. Let's say, hypothetically, the e-mail address is: email@example.com
I click on that e-mail on the account settings/overview of the old phone and it shows me an account ID ending in "AAA" (made-up for simplicity's)
When I now log into the new phone with the Google Login button (I first assumed I used this option in the past but I can't remember!), I log in with my main Google account which goes by firstname.lastname@example.org. Okay, so the Account ID shown on the new phone ends in "BBB". Obviously, since they don't match, it can't be the right account. Trying to type also appears as if it knows nothing about my typing behavior.
Okay, so that's possible. Next, I try the Microsoft button to log in, as I expected, an account has been created with that email@example.com username, but I log into outlook to check on it and set a password. Here, the account ID is yet another and ends: in "CCC".
I'm running out of ideas. What other way could I have used in the past to login/create my account on SwiftKey? I would very much like to avoid losing all of my data. I don't know how to safely retrieve the cloud data from the old phone. As far as I understand it, there are no local backups or anything I could import myself. Please help.

SwiftKey does not respect autocapitalize attribute in HTML input tag Yanıtlandı4 oy 2 yorum
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.
Keys with Both Letters and Numbers Yanıtlandı0 oy 2 yorumLooking at the keyboard the qwerty row keys (actually ALL rows) have numbers (in the case of qwerty) or symbols on the "top" of each key. Example: I want to enter "7" using the "u" key but have yet to discover how. What have I missed? I have been using SwiftKey for 2 days now and the Number row is UNchecked, which is my preference. The Number position is Left, also my preference.

"awkward" back with newest Android gestures when keyboard is up Yanıtlandı0 oy 4 yorumSo, recently I have bought the new galaxy S20 and with it I have started to use the newest gestures. Everything is beautiful until the moment when I type something in keyboard and want to go "back" immediately without going touching above the keyboard to swipe from the side and then going back, because well the reachability in the area where there is keyboard is the best... The idea is that with the new gestures I can't go back when swiping from the side on the keyboard, it has to be done over it and I'd using whatsapp it may activate response mode on one of the previous messages... Other work around is adding "bring keyboard down" button which just ads bulk to the keyboard and I dont want it.. My sulution is that it would be veeeery nice to have a gesture tu pull down from the top of the keyboard to swipe down thus hiding the key board. Let's say from the middle of all 3 word suggestion "boxes"

How to disable auto backspace when using a punctuation mark? Yanıtlandı2 oy 3 yorum
When using a punctuation mark such as colon ":" after inserting space after a word, swiftkey automatically remove the space and connects the punctuation mark with the word.
This was not the case in older versions.
How do we get rid of this behavior?
Also, another thing is that, after any punctuation mark, swiftkey automatically inserts a space after it. In older versions it used to happen only for periods "." , commas "," and semicolons ";"
But now it happens for colon ":" as well which I don't want.
Example for both problems:
While Texting: Life is sad :(
Turns to: Life is sad: (
Please help me fix this as well.

Bug: predictions stop working in Chrome constantly, requiring booting Yanıtlandı-1 oy 1 yorum
Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Android 10 with One UI 2.5
On the inside screen ("tablet" screen of the this foldable phone) the Swiftkey prediction stops working after a few uses: predictions show up properly above the keys but selecting a prediction actually doesn't fix the written erronuous text but only adds a space after the incorrectly typed text. This is clearly a bug.
It always works for one use after a boot, but soon stops working again. So I reboot a lot.
This only happens in Chrome, in the address bar and in any text fields of forms. Restarting the app (force close from settings/apps) and then restarting it from app list does not fix it, only a reboot does. It's problematic that it happens in Chrome because that is the app where I type the most. I cannot change from Chrome since it is forced to be used in our company (a multinational industrial giant) on Windows and I wish to sync the browser with my private Chrome user id on that computer.
I have no experience if prediction works properly on the front screen as I never type on it (it is too narrow to type with adult hands).
The phone has been in use for only two weeks. Removing Switfkey settings (cache + saved data) and the app and reinstallation do not fix the problem.
It is very very annoying, almost enough to stop using Swiftkey and go to the Samsung keyboard. But I'd hate to do that since I've used Swiftkey for a lot of years and it knows my writing very well know. It is great, the rare times it happens to work.
I would make a bug report but cannot find where.The app does not have a feedback option anywhere.
Microsoft Translate doesn't auto translate If we copy the message twice Yanıtlandı0 oy 3 yorum
I am using microsoft translator with WhatsApp.
It is working smooth when I was writing my message and It is simultaneously translating my messages. Then I just send it.
Furthermore, when I select the incoming message and press copy button while Microsoft Translator already selected from the keyboard shortcut, It is directly translating the incoming message. This is superb, however, when I copy it twice, It is not translating the message, only copy the message to clipboard. If I select different message and press copy again, It is translating automatically. And If I select it again, It is not translating the same message anymore.
I think there is a bug at the usage of translator. Is there any way to fix it or any solution, your kind reply would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
