  1. The shortcut will launch whatever you have it set up. I tested this: "hello" was triggered by "hi" "Hello" was triggered by "hii" When I typed "hi" at the beginning of a sentence, it should be in caps (but it triggered the lowercase version).
  2. and if you upgrade to the latest version, they go away? Can you confirm this please.
  3. Yes it is. I have sent over your email address to the person who is part of this project. Look out for an email from another Microsoft coworker of mine.
  4. It would be technically possible to have other actions on that key, as we do the punctuation slider. I'll pass this along.
  5. awesome, thanks for the shout.
  6. Just confirming that I did this myself and i used the word "zero" to trigger it and it worked. You can pick your own trigger word. =D
  7. Make sure you are running the latest version of SwiftKey... on your phone go to a website or however you want, copy that symbol. Go into SK Settings > Hit the clipboard icon on top of the Hub > edit > you'll see the zero with the slash copied. Tap to edit and type in the word you want to trigger the insertion of that character.
  8. You had these set up via SwiftKey? I don't believe shortcuts ever worked. When I was first testing this feature, I tried to set up one with the % key and it didn't work. This is when I was told it was a technical limitation based on how SK works.
  9. This is something we will be looking into. The old way of doing this Android provided a very poor user experience. With the new API Android released has made this better.
  10. The link should open the app up directly. Is you version of SwiftKey up to date?
  11. I don't believe we have this character. What you can try doing is copying it from somewhere and creating a text expansion to convert text into this character.
  12. Thanks for letting us know! Can you confirm what version you are running.
  13. these stats are tied to the APK. So when you uninstall and reinstall, those stats are zero. Most stats I believe don't show up until you've hit a number that makes sense for us to show.
  14. Probably ones in the Minimal Material group. Or the Gem stone pack. The Incognito theme is a bit unique (on purpose). Thanks for the heartfelt feedback. The best thing you can do is just tell your friends/family about SwiftKey and leave us a good review in the theme store.
  15. I get that you are using it on purpose and I believe this is still an issue. I recommend you try a fresh install. This should always be your first thing you do when you encounter a bug with any app. I was just giving an FYI, that with the punctuation slider, you don't need to press hold and move you finger up to the exact location of the character you want to insert. You can press and drag in either direction (left or right) without having to move up to use those characters.
