  1. When a fix comes out, it will most likely come to beta first. Then it will come to market. I will use this thread to let people know of the fix.
  2. Don't think the Samsung sounds are open source. So that could be a legal thing. Not 100 percent sure.
  3. Try signing out of your account and signing back in.
  4. In our latest beta update this past Monday, we added keyboard sound profiles. You have about 5 to pick from. One of them is the default Android sounds. Go check them out.
  5. Sadly, I don't think Tapatalk is supported on this new site. But we'll see what we can do about getting this set up in the future.
  6. Hello everyone, I have some exciting news for you today! Read on... A few years ago, we added a User to User (U2U) section to our VIP Community. In this area, over 8,000 questions have been asked across the Android and iOS community. This means that thousands of people came to this community seeking help and were able to get answers to their questions from another member of the SwiftKey community. We're very proud of everyone that contributed to the success of this support community. As of Wednesday, February 15th, all changes mentioned below are effective. The VIP Forums will remain open and active until Monday, February 20th. After that, the forums will only be "view only" User to User Forums The U2U section was put in place to help with support while also bringing people together to help each other out. We are now taking a step forward and launching the next version of this community. Even though it's in a different location, the same level of dedication will be applied. The fantastic Mod team will transition with this move and be there to help any questions that you may have. Today, we're moving our U2U community to our support site. Now when you end up on our support site (which hopefully isn't too often) then search for your question, you'll be able to see knowledge base articles as well as answers and questions from the community. This keeps all relevant support-related content in the same area, allowing you to get in and out faster than ever. It also means that more people who are looking for help will find it all in one place. New SwiftKey Support Community The U2U forums will remain open to look at for a few more days, but new content will not be able to be posted. I want to thank everyone who posted or answered a question in these forums over the years. It was thanks to all of you that our community was so awesome! Adding a big special thanks to the Mod team: Alpert, Brandoberry, Subliminal5oh2, driftinganomaly, EeZeEpEe (retired), Ledsteplin, Iamdaymo & Martin23 for being the ones who were most on top of responding to your questions as soon as they could. Beta Forums The beta forums have also been moved to Zendesk. We have not created their own separate section. Post beta related questions in the general Android or iOS sections. The mod team & SwiftKey staff will be there to answer questions. If we feel things start to get too messy by combining beta and market support forums, we can create a specific beta one. Greenhouse Forums The Greenhouse forums will also be closed down. We have created a section for SwiftKey Symbols. The rest of the forums will not migrate over for the time being. What does this mean for the rest of the VIP Community? Great question! We have plans, and we'll be sending out more updates soon. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always post them here. Cheers, Ryan, SwiftKey Community Manager
  7. I will pass this feedback along. No time frame when this might be looked into. As as far as I know, we have not seen tons of feedback around this. But no feedback is too small. =]
  8. This is something we are still working on. Not trying to make any excuses here. But we are working on it.
  9. I got an update on this The problem is fixed in version 56 of either Android System Webview (for Android 6.0.1 and below) or Chrome (for Android 7.0 and above). https://plus.google.com/communities/105434725573080290360 Webview 56 is in staged rollout, and webview 57 is in beta. I don't know how long it will take either one to go to 100%. So long-term it's not worth working around this. Short-term I could try a different composing region editor, but it could well introduce other bugs that are harder to track down. Let me know if this helps.
  10. This is just my personal opinion, but is it really that much of a problem to press on the mic key a second longer? It's still very easy to access.
  11. Feedback is heard loud and clear.
  12. To confirm. Shortcuts or clips are not saved. So a fresh install will delete them. I have expressed that these need to be synced. As people take time and effort to add these things. We're aware of the need to do this. We will explore the best way to do so.
  13. Can you give me specific examples? Are they single word predictions or double word?
  14. Two things to add to this: 1) To get SwiftKey to learn a word. Type it and then it's best to send/commit the text. By sending the message/email, etc. This causes the text to be then be learned. If the word is new to swiftkey, it will also be listed in the far left prediction bar (most of the time) 2) What is the word SwiftKey is not learning? Is it a curse word?
  15. So I just had a look at what Google keyboard does in landscape. Even though there all this padding between the return key and space bar, the target hit area for the period is smaller. For SwiftKey, if you hit the padded area between the space bar and the return key, this triggers the period key. I don't see this being restricted to a particular version, just that our target hit area is quite larger. I also don't see this as a bug. While in landscape mode you can change the keyboard height to a smaller size, this should reduce the entire size of the keyboard. Thus making that key smaller and maybe a little harder to hit. I'm not saying this isn't something that can change over time, but I don't see this is a bug, but just how SwiftKey was designed to work.
