Make it possible to switch between the smiley and the enter button permanently
That I could choose if I like the smiley or the enter ar the right bottom corner
Galaxy S2: Return button is send button now.
In programs where it would apply, like Talk for instance, have the ability to change the return /smiley key to a seed button.
I'm not the type of person who use smiley face a lot and long pressing the smiley face to press enter is annoying. It's the only gripe I have with this keyboard.
Would be nice to have the choice to disable smiley face many or swap it with enter button and the smiley face menu by long pressing.
please look at this 2 screenshots from my HTC One X...
Whatsapp--> Return Key
SMS by HTX--> Smiley Key
please fix this.. i want the Enter key in both first...
not being able to do this is really annoying!
i love everything about the keyboard, i just hate how there's no option to remove the smiley key or at least leave it as a "Enter" Key
Have the option to change the default button function for the enter key to be either smileys/emoticons or enter/new line. Not all of your PAYING users are 12 year old girls who adds a smiley face after each sentence. Either revert back to your old method where in all text fields (especially in messaging apps), the bottom right corner of the keyboard was enter/new line and by long pressing, you get an array of useless smileys, or give us the option to choose what we want. If you think all your prepubescent customers are paying for this app using their credit card, you're dead wrong SwiftKey. Change it back. Until you fix what you guys obviously screwed up, I have to now find an illegal apk of an old version or try to find a backup version on my sd card...so Thank you,devs for assuming we all use smileys. :-)
Enter key should always be enter key as default.
Enter key in messaging should not put a smiley. It should switch to next line. Long pressing enter key to actually make the enter key work and not put a smiley is very inconvenient especially when i hv to send a fast text. Please do look into it. Because the keyboard is perfect otherwise and i absolutely love it. Only this little thing is a bit of problem. Your response would be highly appreciated.
Seriously, this is the single most frustrating thing about SwiftKey and almost caused me not to buy it. There's nothing worse than going to tap backspace a few times and ending up with a bunch of smileys on accident. Also having to press-hold for the return key? No!
PLEASE give us the option to switch the return key to the press-once option and have smileys be the press-hold option, or better yet, completely remove the smileys. I don't think this is just me that uses the return key more often than smileys.
The other thread I saw about this was more than a year and a half old and was getting no attention despite 1700+ votes and 160+ comments.
Put the smiley button into the long press mode and I bring the enter button up on the foreground!
Ability to change default function of bottom right key during regular txting (mode).
Option to set the enter key primary over the happy face feature when writing a message
Would like to change the function. I struggle with premature textulation :p
Give the option to have the smiley faces be the secondary option for those who use the return key more often.
delete the emotocon button gets in the way and I never use it
For some reason the carriage return and happy face key get inverted where the happy face is the main function. Why does this happen and will you allow us to change it.?
I think the return key should be a default press, but I acknowledge that some do not agree. I would appreciate the ability to toggle that option, though. I never use smileys, and the main reason I was going to purchase swiftkey was to get rid of the smiley face button on default Android 4.1.
I miss the smile button on the enter button. How can I get it? I am a German user and would like have a answer in german language please.
The single most annoying feature is the fact that SwiftKey automatically inserts a smiley in text messages instead of allowing you to hit enter for a new paragraph. There should be an option to disable smileys. They are inappropriate for messages between professionals, and the fact that a smiley shows up as the default instead of a hard return is a mistake.
Get rid of the pointless and useless dedicated smiley face key. It was an original feature on my droidX, then Motorola removed it in an update. What made you decide that it was something that was needed?
There should be an option to get rid of the emoticon button when in sms mode. I accidentally hit it all the time and I will never use it
Why do smileys have precedence on the return key? This doesn't make sense. Please provide a way to make Return the primary function on that
I never use the smileys you have stored on that button but I use the return/enter function every day. Could you at least make that buttons primary function optional?
The Enter key should be available for all functions and the long press action should be secondary for smileys.
I use the return key much more than the smiley face in chat can those please be switched or have an option to switch them
I love the keyboard, but when im texting the enter key becomes a smily face key, make it optional to have the smile or not bc i use enter a lot nd having to hold it down hit enter nd then the abc key again slows me down
The Enter key doesn't work directly in SMS mode. Please make it as default instead of taking the user to emoticons
The enter key is more useful than the smilies key so switching the order to have a single press for enter and long press for smilies within the HTC messages apply would be great
The only complaint I have ever had about SwiftKey is the default smiley face in messages, with the long-press return. The latest release makes it even worse. Return requires 1) long-press, 2) tap on return, 3) alpha tap to return to regular keys. PLEASE make the return key/emoticon key default behavior optional.
This feature existed in previous versions of SwiftKey, but it's absent in v3! Can you bring it back? Some people use emoticons in almost any context and some of them are really awkward to type manually.
When return is not available (when writing sms/tweet etc.) I sometimes accidently press the smiley button. As I never use those smileys, they're actually quite irritating. I'd like to see that button blank when when return is not available.
If we would rather create our own emoticons, don't waste keyboard space with this button. Either let us remap or remove the key to make other keys larger (like the space bar).
Is possible disabled smile button?
I think the return key should be the single press and the symbols should be the long press
If not the keyboard revert to alphabetic after the return key has been pressed
Add an option to disable the smiley key. I never use it and would much prefer to just use it as an enter key
You should make it optional to be able to just long press the return key and have smileys pop up and keep the return key as just one press. I literally never use the smiley key, its dumb and I do use the enter key but its such a hassle to get to it
Have enter as the first choice instead of smile in the massage mode. Or make it possible to choose.
Instead of having smilies as the enter button, make the enter button for enter and long press for smilies.
swapping the enter and emotion keys around was a BADDDD idea.. i try to hit enter for a new line and get a smiley and do this over and over.
Can't turn of the default selection of a smiley instead of a line break when writing smses. Annoying to have to go through several steps of clicking to open the smiley menu and select line break instead, which is placed by the edge of the screen and therefore not always clickable on my phone. Everywhere else but in smses, the linebreak is the default selection as it should be.
Also, when using Arabic keyboard, please make it possible to show only the English numbers (AKA Arabic numbers), NOT both at the English (AKA Arabic) and Arabic (AKA Indian) numbers at the same time.!! It's very crowded and confusing now. In fact, it would be much better if you remove the Arabic numbers (AKA Indian) abd stick with the original Arabic numbers (AKA English numbers).
I want the enter/return key to be like a normal key and if you longpress you get the smilies.
Not an insta smiley instead of enter/return. Which is VERY annoying.
You use enter/return more than smilies in general.
As I said.
Allow us to switch Enter key and Smiley options.
I use the enter key a lot, but its annoying to have to long press to make a new line.
Would love an option to be able to switch it around so i have to long press for smileys.
Make the key by default a return/next line, and as that gets used all the time in texting, hold for smilies
Hate holding for the sub menu just to start a new line...
See it mostly in texting
I need a carriage return, not a smilley face in all applications that require keyboard input.
Without a carriage return, except by long keypress then pressing the arrow key, my communications run together and become confusing.
Paragraphs are essential to all languages. Lack of a carriage return makes this keyboard unusable to me. I am disabling it now for the stock keyboard which has a carriage return and speeds the clarity of my typing and message.
I rarely use emoticons (smileys) but I do often want to start a new paragraph, so the option to choose the default action of the return key to always be start a new paragraph and require longpress to insert smiley would be very useful.
Would be nice to be able to disable the smiley function on the enter key, or to remove the enter key altogether and widen the spacebar. I never use this, and frequently just hit it on accident.
I'm really sick of accidently inserting emoticons, it'd be great. If I could swap enter to be primary and have the emoticon menu be the Long press.
Posebility to change the return key to a default smily.
Why Enter key changes to Smiley key when writing SMS????? This bug is very frustrating... Please fix.
It just happened all of a sudden during SMS texting.
It was exactly the same with the trial version too.
At first: press for new line, long-press for smileys and then all of a sudden after texting an entire day it just CHANGED.
I have an HTC Desire HD and it's only like this during.
For instance now while I'm writing this in Opera the enter key is making a new line.
I'd like to move the rarely used smiley key to the numbers page and leave just the return key.
I pretty much covered it in the title.
Seperate the return key from the Smiley.
I need return key back instead of smileys.
Make enter key default istead of the emoticons
A simple checkbox or other option type to force the lower right button to always be line return instead of an emoticon.
The thing keeping me from using swiftkey x day to day is a setting to remove the smiley key and make the space bar bigger. Also I'd like to be able have the voice key pull up voice to text by default.
There should be opption to remove smileys (emoticones) from "enter" button, coz not everyone using them.
Please could make it possible to change the default action for the return key when typing. When writing text messages it always wants insert a smiley face, which is very frustrating.
The old SwiftKey had the option to turn off smileys on the enter button... PLEASE bring that option back. I never use your built in smileys. Ever.
Make the smiley key optional. I never use it and accidentally hit it sometimes.
How do I change the bottom right key to be a smiley face instead of the enter/next line thing?
Enter an Option where the User can on/off the smiliebutton instead of the returnbutton. Because many Progs will give you an..enterfunktion......but smiliebutton...this woulb be an nice gimmik.
I don't use emoticons frequently enough to warrant its own button, and it often gets in the way of pushing the ?, which leads to really embarrassing exchanges at times. It would be nice to see an option to hide it entirely.
Give smiley button and give option to Move Question mark the another page and give option remove Setting button to expand space bar more.
In this recent Swiftkey X, the Enter button takes the place of ":D" emoticon (that i personnally always use it). Can you please solve this little problem ?
Currently the status of the bottom-right button is determined by information given to us by the app or text field that you are using – the app developer or web developer will indicate whether the bottom-right button should be smiley/new line, go, confirm, next field, etc. Smiley and Enter (new line) are the most common uses, but not the only uses of this button.

I know everyone else has mentioned this...but i decided to try out Google's Hangouts app, especially now that it can handle all the text messages too. However I am finding it difficult to enjoy since this is such a terrible use for the button, I rarely use emoticons.
I understand this has been replied to by SwiftKey support, but the programmers for this program should not be allowed to keep their hands if they cannot make a manual override for this "feature" of SwiftKey. Make it default to whatever the user wants, even if it is hidden in menus, with the option to select other items (based on app) on a long press...like every other button.
this seems to be a houngouts thing, are others having this issue with other apps?
The smiley on the enter key is driving me nuts. Who is their right mind thought that it would be a good idea?
And echoing everybody else's comments - frustrating that on my phone (Sony Xperia), the return key when typing a message is shared with a very large smiley... consequently I just can't press return... and no config option to fix it. Please change this.
Please change smiley face back to the return function on maxx device. Return is a much more functional tool than the emoticon feature. Just got the maxx today and this is the most annoying issue for me!
Please include a setting option whether to auto check as you are doing which is wrong for me or to override it to something. Include in advanced setting. Pleawe
Yes, please fix this.
The problem with the smiley/enter button is not fixed at all for norwegian users..
I was looking forward to trying out Hangouts, but the enter key being changed to smiley is a deal breaker. Why wouldn't you make it an option to be able to switch between the two?? This is a step backwards in terms of functionality.
This occurs in the Text function of Droid MAXX - that's not really an "app", per se - maybe you and Google can come to terms with this? I hate smilies and never use them.
I've been using SwitKey since the beta of flow and have not had this smiley being default issue until I updated hangouts today. It actually only seems to be an issue in hangouts.
Andrew Breckenridge commented
I've always recommended this application as a great replacement for stock keyboards. The only problem is having the Smiley button as a default button takes away all professional appearances. This should be an option. "return" by default and 'smileys' by long press. It should be customizable like some of the other features.
Elliot Westbrook commented
How hard is this to change. It's almost been 3 full years.
Please fix this.
if you prefer the enter function of the key, then you can install English (UK), having both selected i was able to make the enter key the main function while the smiley function only when long pressed.
How has this not been fixed? Does anyone honestly use the smiley button? I would assume swiftkey's main users aren't 13 year old girls.
I'm sick of seeing a stupid smiley face come up every time i accidentally press this button.
Having the smiley instead of the return key is very frustrating.
That said, I would welcome having smiley prediction back
Otherwise, love your work
but i wanna the smiley button in the right bottom corner instead of enter button... therefore it would be better if we can choose what we want.
please swiftkey set this option in the setting menu... i wanna choose!!!
Eddie Lee commented
It's incredibly inconvenient when trying to enter a new line but I get an old, ugly, and outdated emoticon (with the nose). Please make the default behavior of the button be a new line!
Nobody uses those emoticons anymore. If it needs to stay, let us customize those to phrases, shortcuts, or other emoticons!
Great how support hears us!
Since July 2011, users begging to have a option to use the "enter" key instead of "smile".
Many users do not care anymore, because they are using third-party applications, where you can choose the application which will be standard.
In my Xperia U, the default keyboard from Sony uses the enter key instead of smile. Smile NEVER should be standard for ANY application.
All we ask is a choice! Give us the ability to choose what we want to use as standard, as well as nearly all keyboard applications already have!
Moreover, there is nothing to be said of Swiftkey. In all the rest it is a wonderful keyboard.
