Manually edit dictionary - add or remove words
Editing the dictionary.. For example deleting passwords added to the dictionary by mistake.
a personalized dictionary I can edit and insert my own words into

Let people edit their own directories
There are some things that swiftkey never fixes that I would like to add manually to a "dictionary" of sorts. For example, this may not bother many people, but I'd like to add it always changing "Lol" and to "lol" even if at the beginning of a new sentence. I'm sure other people have their own words that they have to always change also.
SwiftKey is able to use GMail, Facebook, Twitter and so-on to build a personalized dictionary. But this dictionary can involve sensitive information or just words that you don't want to show up (or words you want to reset). While it's already possible to remove certain suggestions, it is not possible to see and edit what SwiftKey knows about your habits.
Idea would be to add an option where you can see the list of most common words farmed from your Facebook, GMail, SMS, Twitter as well as while using SwiftKey itself and then make tweaks there.
Ex-girlfriends name to be removed? A typo that you have made -forever- keeps showing up? Certain nicknames get in the way of actual words? Things like that.
It would be nice to be able to see what's in my dictionary and manually add words. I've been text messages myself with common words to add them.
I really love the word prediction and correction but I have often find myself entering the same word several times (pressing the bubble on the far left showing what I'm typing) and it seems like no matter how many times I press the button to make SwiftKey X learn the word it just doesn't, it does not happen with all words but it does happen often enough, please add a option to force new words to be learned after a single use that can be enabled or disabled to fit your customer needs. Thanks for such an amazing product :)
ability to add custom words for prediction dictionary, more details like how many words he learned from each personalization and ability to view and edit entries.
I would like to be able to view and edit the user dictionary much like I can with the default keyboard. The optimum solution would be to use a centralized user dictionary that all keyboard could pull/push from/to.
Sometimes, some words are added into our auto-predict dictionary and there's no way to remove it. Please have some menu where we can view all our words that we added into the dictionary and remove those that we don't want.
Add a user dictionary that users can add ANY word they want. There are some words I have typed over a hundred times and they still do not show up while I am typing. This would be similar to the Android stock keyboard and the option to add unusual words.
You can remove accidentally-saved passwords (or any other word that you don’t want in your model) by longpressing on the prediction and choosing “Remove”.
Because SwiftKey takes into account the context in which you use a word, the best way to add words is to do so at the time when you want to type them.
If your spacebar is set to “complete current word” or “insert a prediction” then the left-hand prediction will show the exact lettters that you have typed. Tap it to insert the word.
If your spacebar is set to “always insert a space” then just tap the space and the word you typed is inserted.
SwiftKey will learn every word that you type, but if your word is competing with another popular word (similar tap pattern, similar flow pattern or similar context) then it may take a few goes before your word is predicted.

I want to add Keyboard shortcuts not just add to the current dictionary. For instance on Google keyboard writing sunglasses gives me this:
Disapproval gives me this:
I have a bunch of similar shortcuts, which I find useful but the method you described cannot produce this nor will an update to the predictive text cover this.

The response is ignoring what we are asking for. We want a actual dictionary option in the settings that we can go to and see all the words we have added or mistaking added. As of right now the stupid app is not learning my typing and it's very frustrating. This could be a fix for the short term but a very nice future for the long term. I don't know why this simple feature isn't available to everyone as i think it's a very important feature. I love the key our but it's very annoying that it's not learning my words and let alone doesn't know major cities like Vancouver. When I long press it to forget a prediction it doesn't work. It's still and always has been broken for me.
PLEASE ADD A CUSTOM DICTIONARY OPTIONS TO THE SETTINGS!
Thank you. Cheers.
I know I can long press. HOWEVER I want to see a full list and I want to be able to edit that list. If there is just a plain txt file I can manually edit or a database, that's fine, but I want direct control instead of maybe I see a mistake when it pops up or not.
I WANT TO SEE THE MASTER LIST.

Still, for someone using "alaways insert space", it is impossible to delete a wrong word learnt from Facebook or something. And we can't add words of our own without having to use them first.

This answer doesn't resolve the question. How can we add a word manually to the directory?

My wife's name is Rebeccah, with an "h". I've been using SwiftKey for over a year. I've had it learn from my email, twitter, and Facebook account. It still doesn't have her name in my dictionary - at all! I have to type every single letter every single time. I have the same problem with several other words/abbreviations; like "i.e." that takes a copious amount of keystrokes. SwiftKey - FAIL.

This should be awesome! Why isn't this standard in the app??
It would be great if there will be some flag and when i check my vocabulary, i can mark all those as checked. Later i can check only those, which are unchecked.
It would be great.

Add and delete world to or from dictionary at the typing time is ok. But I need possibility to correct worlds in the dictionary. Some of them delete, some of them correct. Offline, not at typing time, because many times I have no time to correct long incorrect words. See HTC. My old HTC had option to browse and correct whole user dictionary.
Delete a word work fine with me. Press 5 sec and delete... With version 184.108.40.206
I long pressed for about 30 seconds and nothing happens. I saved the word uf by mistake and need to remove it. Could someone please tell me how I can do that, since long pressing does nothing.
I came here to create a topic for this but since there is already one i add my case here.
I really love using swiftkey on my s4. I actually bought the payed version since i like the look and feel of the original.
Now after using it for a few month and also getting cloud backup only thing I miss and which annoys me is the lack of ability to add words to the database.
Example, today I wanted to write "challenge" using swiftkey but it ended up
Writing "valance". You can try it yourself. No matter how much I tried to teach swiftkey it just would not learn it or even suggest the right word to me. There should be possible to extend the vocabulary by adding new words to the language database. Is there any work being done on this already maybe?
Overall it works fine. However some times words that I've never used pop up over others that I use more often. And I also think that dictionary manual editing is a must.
Customer service here STINKS. I got no response to my question, and they have NO contact information. PLUS that dictionary with all those useless entries just slows me down. I STILL can't get "we" to come up. Why would I need all those proper nouns? Just give us the basics and let us add our own words.
I was about to buy it, but decided against it. Mainly because, after spending HOURS deleting useless words, the slow way because there doesn't seem to be a way to edit that dictionary, I realized that getting the paid version would just give me the same dictionary back and I'd have to do it all over again!
While it is possible to edit or remove individual "words" (real or misspellings) by long-pressing the prediction, it would be very convenient to be able to modify the entire predictive words list in one operation. Please add this function to the settings menu. Thanks.
I want to really get in there and edit the dictionary! You have too many unnecessary words, and this long-pressing words takes too long. Can't I just go in there and delete all those useless words like Edinburgh and Fyord? Really, you should just have the basic words and let it "learn" the USERS words. But at least let us go in there and edit it. THANKS!

the automated learning isn't reliable enough.
i had to repeat my username 30 times before it remembered, while strangely it did "remember" my name if it was already present in the same textbox.
just a simple "remember now" button should be enough.
Michael Wells commented
Yeah, your predictive text is cool, but the learning is a joke. I type my daughter, Shelby's name about once every day and a half, and have never typed 'Shelbyville' except when pointing out how every time I try to type Shelby it wants to insert Shelbyville. Much like the stupid '.com' button removal(or ability to disable) request, I see a ton of people with an issue, and no resolution forthcoming from the devs. I guess that really as long as you get your money, that's all that matters.
Ryan Ohashi commented
Really, there's a word suggestion list? Should be able to edit, add, save, delete. Especially useful for languages not supported!
Well, work not at all words. And often in my dictionary stands "familie" but "Familie" is right (im german).
So its nice to have a file or what else to cerrct it by once, not 15x.
