HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS AND OVERVIEW IT AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?4 oy 0 yorum

HOW TO BACKUP AND RESTORE ALL CLIPBOARD CREATED SHORTCUTS?
I want to create a backup file from all the created clipboard shortcuts.
AND OVERVIEW IT?
in my phone i can't organise the shortcuts, i can only create a lot and scroll through the created shortcuts and edit them when i can find them. But after making hundreds of shortcuts it is frustrating to lose an overview and not be able to organise them all on Alphabetical order and in a spreadsheet file or anything exportable to a cloud - document - excel conversion so i can keep the shortcuts and export the file to another device and use them all again on that device.
This could be handy for educational tool on schools and universities with standard shortcuts.
Also it would be great if the overview is possible in a spreadsheet so people can really learn the shortcuts and overview them, edit the ones they want to edit and restore the file to the device or devices.
AND EDIT IT IN A FILE?
Talking about a dowloadable file is the first thing we need to do if we think about shortcuts on keyboards.
Swiftkey would be the best app if it allows users to create a file and make them able to edit these shortcuts personal in an editor online or on a spreadsheet cloud environment.
Changing which symbols are associated with each letter?4 oy 2 yorum
For instance, maybe I prefer the $ to be associated with a long press on D instead of X.

Text shortcuts4 oy 3 yorum
I am a busy man, efficiency is key, but I've been using the default android keyboard since time immemorial. Stubborn to make its lackluster autocorrect system work for me. Swiftkey blows that out of the water BUT there's something seemingly easy to add but essential about the keyboard that's missing from Swiftkey and had saved me a ton of time in the Samsung keyboard. You guessed it, text shortcuts. They can help me write three letters that get replaced with a paragraph of text I'd pre-written and sent a thousand times. These are non negotiable to continue using your otherwise wonderful app and I'd be more than pleased to use it in the future should that feature be added
Thank you for your time
Cannot log in to my account with google4 oy 4 yorum
i use SwiftKey for years now and today i wanted to log me in in my SwiftKey account on my new Phone (galaxy s10+). I can only choose between Google and Microsoft. I tried it with Google because this is my Mail Adress which i used for my SwiftKey Account. When i click on Google there is a white loading page and it is loading and loading and nothing happens. I can log me in to my account on the SwiftKey Website. My password for my SwiftKey account is different to my googlemail account. Want can i do? Please help
Revert to letters after using the spacebar after punctuation.4 oy 0 yorum
I just switch from iOS SwiftKey to Android Switfkey and the keyboard is a bit different. Its smaller, which is okay... But the punctuation is different. On iOS when I would type "oh my gosh!" for example, the keyboard would revert back to the letters after I typed the "!" and pressed the spacebar. I can't find an option for this. Is there one? If not, PLEASE fix this!
Another thing is the keys are in different places so I'm finding it hard to adapt. Adding a layout option for the keyboards would help. The bottom row of symbols has 8 symbols instead of the 5 I was used to. I am sure I will adjust, but it would be a nice feature for users who are switching keyboards.
Compact resize button is bothering4 oy 3 yorum
Hi! I find the New square "full keyboard" button when in compact Mode bothering. I only use compact because I love to use my phone with one hand and with the button I keep making the keyboard complete all the time. Could you Make it optional in order to remove it? Thanks
Auto incognito switching and typing4 oy 0 yorum
It's awesome to know that SwiftKey can switch to Incognito mode automatically in Chrome/Firefox incognito tabs. But there's an issue.
The keyboard theme/UI for the incognito mode, does not show Accented characters. This causes serious problems while typing or want to type fast.
Solution : 1. Implement the feature, to show all Accented characters, custom theme in incognito mode (just don't track the typing, and that's all).
2. Give option to turn off Auto incognito switching.

Quick access to plain text emoticons4 oy 1 yorum
don't know if this has already been asked, cannot find it in the forum search. The thing is I'm an old guy, I've started chatting when we still had the BBSs and Internet was almost unknown. Because of that I hate all those damn emojis, all that bitmap wasting just to show stupid faces, and silly objects, and flags and who knows what other weird stuff. So, is there a way to quick access the text-only emoticons, ie, those you can type by just using brackets, two colon and the like :-) :-/ :-(
Previous versions, I could keep the Enter key pressed and at least a top row with a clock icon appeared, and from there I could see my last typed emoticons. Now, text emoticons are not under the clock anymore and the text emoticons tab :-) is just the last one, and it's very impractical to access it this way. Can the order of those tabs be changed? Could you bring the text emoticons back to the history tab?
Thanks in advance for the help.

So many themes, but not one that looks good4 oy 2 yorum
I have several issues with the SwiftKey themes:
1. There are lots of themes, but most of them feature the exact same key layout with another background. These 'themes' should not be listed as separate themes, but as variations of a theme. The most sensible thing to do to get some structure in this mess, is creating several keyboard layouts (i.e. with rectangular keys, rounded corners, no border,...), then let the user choose whether or not to display secondary symbols on the keys, and then offer color options.
2. There is no reason to put the SwiftKey logo in plain sight on the spacebar. I know which keyboard I'm using, and I 'm happy to tell other people if they ask, but I don't want your logo all the time in my sight. Put it in the '+'-menu if you absolutely need to show it somewhere.
3. There are almost no beautiful themes. I know this is very subjective, and yes, there are themes with balloons and fireworks as background images, and I can even use a custom photo,... But to me, a perfect keyboard is the keyboard that is not "in your face"; it's a keyboard that you don't even notice using. It should be clean, and have no showy interface elements. These themes are (almost) not available to choose from. The only theme that comes close to this, is 'Minimal material light', but even in a 'minimal' theme, you couldn't stop using colors and painted the shift, backspace, enter, emoji and symbols keys lilac.
Please get rid of the nineties keyboard layouts and introduce some modern ones, and make them fully customizable.

Keyboard too big after security update4 oy 8 yorum
My Nokia 7 plus got a security update, and afterwards I noticed that the SwiftKey keyboard had gotten bigger. I'm on version 18.104.22.168. Here's a screenshot of how big the keyboard is now: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ev3YBoLgGUGTp2wxCUw---IzxnxwD0G1/view?usp=drivesdk
Japanese Keitai input4 oy 2 yorum
Please add the feature to turn off the old obsolete Keitai multiple tap input for Japanese and use Flick ONLY. Gboard allows you to do this. It is such a pain whenever you want to enter hiragana twice you have to wait and it ruins the flow. I've made so many mistakes because of this so I'm forced to use Gboard. But I'd really like it for SwiftKey to add this and it should be a really easy thing to implement
Smarter capitalization of "I"4 oy 0 yorum
This has been asked for about a year ago, but I'll try again... I've enabled two languages in the SwiftKey (beta) app. My native tongue and English. Switching between the two is seamless, which I enjoy, but the app keeps capitalizing my I's in my mother tongue as well (where "i" is a standalone word that shouldn't be capitalized mid-sentence). It would be great if the app could for example look at the word before "i" and then suggest capitalizing only if the word is English.
For now I have to manually correct it, which takes a lot of time in the long run.
Keyboard covers input field - impossible to write, predictions not working4 oy 4 yorum
I'm having a big issue with SwiftKey on my HTC ONE M7 on Android 5.
The keyboard covers the input field in almost any messenger (WA, GG, TG,...) and makes it impossible to write.
The predictions are also not click-able. When I tap on one of the predictions, the keyboard disappears, as if I would tap on the Messengers window.
I have some Screenshots showing the bug but this forum doesn't seem to have an option to attach images. How can I post an image?
With this serious bug, SwiftKey is totally useless for me.
I can't see the text I'm writing.
I can't tap on the predictions.
The built-in HTC Sense Keyboard works just fine without this issue, so it has to be SwiftKey that's causing the bug.
Please resolve this issue as soon as possible. I can't live without SwiftKey!
Manual language swap4 oy 2 yorum
Hi, is it possible to change languages manually? When I have two or more languages together (i have Czech, English and French) and use flow, the resulting words of the flow gesture tend to be wrong often (a lot). Even if i use only Czech and English which is necessary in my every day life it is not working well. I would appreciate manual language switching as was possible in the past. Also separate personal dictionaries would be implied.(added words)
[FEATURE REQUEST] Make the space bar bigger!!4 oy 5 yorum
I see so many requests to make the spacebar bigger to eliminate the problem with accidentally hitting the period but yet no response or fix from Swiftkey, so I thought I would add on a post. I really want to love Swiftkey and keep switching back to it every couple of weeks but then that darn period problem annoys me so much that I end up quickly switching to another keyboard. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Can barely type anymore.4 oy 10 yorum
When I'm typing on another forum the keys have stopped working properly and even when I tap the prediction words it puts in other things. Often pressing spacebar pus in letters like T randomly. Just now trying to type T with a period after wouldn't let me.
It's seems most problematic on that site.
Bluetooth External Keyboard - Multiple languages4 oy 7 yorum
As a language student, I have a need to type in multiple languages (five, to be exact), though I'm having trouble with my external Bluetooth keyboard. Though I can change the prediction language to Russian or Korean, I can't actually type the characters (remains typing with a US layout when I'd really like to be typing in the language I've changed to).
New quick paste feature in SwiftKey Beta 22.214.171.124 oy 1 yorum
Just tried it and you have to enable the clipboard feature, and then the copied text shows up as a prediction so if you're in a text field that has prediction disabled (like say... a password entry) it doesn't work. Why can't you implement a simple paste button that will paste whatever was copied? I would mainly use this feature to paste copied passwords from LastPass in apps/websites where getting the paste dialog to show up is either a pain or impossible. I do NOT want a list of my last used passwords showing up on my screen, which is why I disable the clipboard feature to begin with!
As an example, Fleksy has a clipboard feature that lets you swipe from the number row to a row of keys with three functions: Copy, Cut, Paste. No copied text ever shows up on the screen and it will paste the text into any text entry available. SwiftKey could easily have similar functionality by, for example, adding a paste button into the comma key long press that activates voice entry or something similar.
The German letter Eszett needs its own dedicated key4 oy 2 yorum
It's great that the QWERTZ (extended) layout has dedicated keys for Ä,Ö, and Ü, but there should definitely be a "ß" key (Eszett) as well. It's a common letter, and it's really cumbersome that you can only type it by longpressing the letter "S". There's enough space to add "ß" as well.

It will be nice if the High contrast theme has the symbols shown on the alphabets on the keys like some other themes so it's easier to key symbols.
Can't sign into Facebook on latest beta4 oy 4 yorum
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 oy 2 yorum
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.
