    In our latest Beta, you can choose to set the bottom-right button to always prefer “enter” over smileys.

    This is accessible by pressing an holding the 123 key, choosing Settings, Theme, and checking the box by Enter key

    You can find out more about the beta here http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/swiftkey-4-5-beta-brings-emoji-and-number-row/

        Couldn't agree more. Enter key should be consistant across all modes (be it messaging or email or whatever) of SwiftKey. As a result, smileys may be invoked by long press of Enter key or an entirely a new key or so.

        I want my enter key to be an enter key.... Not a smiely.
        Please bring back my enter key in messaging, why is it different from my other typing layouts?
        Bring me an option to change.
        Thank you

        Just downloaded this today to fix the awful autocorrect on stock keyboard on Android 4.2 (which beats the garbage on 2.3). The default messages app has a smiley button where the enter key should be using the default Google keyboard. It is an enter key in every other program. With this new keyboard it is still a smiley button but I can long press to get a complex menu and then hit enter. I don't want to long press for enter!!!

        I previously downloaded a new sms app to fix this problem because Motorola doesn't want users making long texts (they have said this hence their removal of the enter key), and while at least it is possible to hit enter, I can't believe an override has not been implemented. Looking at this thread it appears that it was suggested THREE years ago!! Why is it not here?? Based on the lack of concern over users I am definitely not going to buy this when my trial runs out even if it is better than stock keyboard. 3 years is absolutely ridiculous, and the problem still isn't solved! Unacceptable!!

        Another z1 user here. The keyboard layout in Chrome is awesome. Would love the same layout in messaging

      • Kyle BrownKyle Brown commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Really would prefer to have an enter key instead of the emoticon when using my messaging app on Xperia z1. Absolutely love SwiftKey and would prefer it over the stock keyboard, but annoys me that the enter key works as an enter key in Chrome but not when using other apps.

      • Aaron ScullyAaron Scully commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I second this - it's crazy that emoticons have taken over the default behaviour of the enter key on a keyboard. I use line breaks in text messages way more than smileys. Think I'll be going back to Swype shortly if the devs don't sort this stupid mistake out.

      • Jason KeenJason Keen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I love this app!!! Please revert back the original enter key function. I need a line break, not a smiley face when I hit enter.
        Thanks,
        Jason

      • ChrisChris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we just have the option to remove the stupid emoticon and emoji key all together? I have no use for them, and I'd appreciate having a normal enter key to use.

      • Ravi SrinivasanRavi Srinivasan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hi Folks, thanks for the update. Installed the Beta version and chose the Enter Key in the Theme.
        It does not work the way I expected in SMS. What happens now is that pressing the 'enter key' sends out the message rather than going to the next line! danger!! Could this please be fixed?
        thanks.

        I don't have "checking the box by Enter key" in my SwiftKey version 4.4.4.264.
        How to remove the smile from the enter key??

      • Frank TanghareFrank Tanghare commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Long ago I bought Swiftkey tablet. I've been using is ever since, even with the Legacy version. But now my enter key has become an emoticon.

        Like someone said before me, I'm a grown man and do not use emoticons.

      • OttoOtto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I installed Beta version and everything seemed working fine and didnt care if it was called Beta or Zeta as long as it works but then it asked for an automatic update. Well I thought things would get better but now I have other issues. I had to uninstall beta and use my paid version with smiley key again, after update it seems like Enter key is a primary by default but not in my Sony SMS app. Can you please fix this issue? Enter works fine in Whatsup, Facebook, chrome not in native sms app.
        Hope I will get a response that it has been read.
        Thanks

        I've got the free trial and don't have the option to disable the smiley. Was just starting to like this keyboard but this is a definite deal-breaker. Absolutely ridiculous feature.

        Could be enter on normal press, smileys on long press. Defaulting to smiley is so stupid. Whoever coded it that way is a jerk.

      • PaulPaul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Why hasn't the option to stop those stupid emoticons from taking preference over enter not been rolled out to the paid version?

        We aren't all 12 year old girls.

      • BrianBrian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Lucky Me! My swiftkey install just picked up this annoying feature within the last day or two. the enter key no longer "enters" but inserts a smiley. long pressing the key also does not work.
        The menu option described above does not exist, at least not as it is described.

        I use the enter key frequently - as in every single message I type. This is a total deal breaker. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE correct this ASAP, like in the next few days. Dont make me swtich.

      • Eric G.Eric G. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I think that's a "feature" of KitKat (4.4). If you switch to the native Android keyboard, you'll probably see that its ENTER has also changed to a smiley. At least, that's the case with Hangouts on my Nexus 5 with KitKat.

        Drives me nuts ...
