Manually edit dictionary - add or remove words
Editing the dictionary.. For example deleting passwords added to the dictionary by mistake.
Over time I've deleted words, both intentionally and accidentally, that I want to add back into my personal dictionary. But *without* having to wipe out everything I already have in said dictionary and rebuilding from scratch. Why is it only possible to delete but not add? I want to have full control of what's in my personal dictionary. I'm freaky like that...
some word learn with RSS or Facebook are not necessary (or wrong) that could be great to see our cloud dictionnary to manage it. add word, remove word, add correction ... (sorry my english is bad but I'm french)
, we all have words used in daily conversation, which we use in writing as well, like damn or hell,and I promise you s***is spoken at least once or twice daily. one of the most frustrating experiences with Swiftkey is the need to slow to plunk out each letter of damn or hell. This makes me want to use a different keyboard folks please see what you can do to add a personal library?
a personalized dictionary I can edit and insert my own words into
словарь. Сделайте пожалуйста открытый словарь, который можно сохранить и редактировать. Возможность переносить словарь на планшет.
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.
it would be great if a swiftkey admin (Maybe Sarah :) could explain why you chose not to implement this option.

Here's yet another vote for letting users edit their custom dictionaries. I'm sure you're bright enough to figure out how to do this, so PLEASE just so it and make thousands of users happy.

you absolutely must make this option. I'm paying customer and have been using it with pleasure with exception of seeing a very common mistakes in serbian language. the most annoying common mistakes like when people don't make a difference between 'its' and "it's". I've removed too many of those for now... but this is used in future tense with verbs and some idiot used the mistake with ALL the verbs :-)
it's f*king ridiculous. please add this option ASAP

Ridiculous that I can't edit the dictionary. After reading these posts and realizing it's not gonna happen, I'm gonna find another app. PITA to learn a whole new program but not more than the PITA it is having to select my name from the list of options because it won't ever learn the Steohen is not my - nor anyone's - name, just a word I accidentally entered once.
COULD be a great keyboard app, but absolutely NEEDS to provide the user with the option to edit the dictionary and prioritize similar choices! Make it happen! With all you've managed to do in creating this app, ***** the wider assortment of themes, we need it to be more functional and user friendly! My old HTC keyboard, had the ability to train it so IT would learn where I press each letter, NOT ***-backward like SwiftKey, telling me where I have previously hit for each letter. It's NOT rocket science!
Please add a custom dictionary setting! and South African English please...Also if your algorithm worked properly it would prioritise words I use instead of words that I dont know anyone uses/not relevant..eg I wanted to write the word 'wallet' to someone just now and it kept on prioritising the word 'Radlett' ...twice before I manualy chose the secondary option Wallet...Ugggh
Ребят надо добавить возможность редакции своих слов в словаре!
I want to be able to add my own short cuts for custom emoji like the table flip I used to love SwiftKey but this update just aggravated me I'm going back to stalk untill you make it so we can edit our own personal dictionary

There are words that SwiftKey just never learns. It doesn't matter how many times I try to have it learn the word "sexism" it always wants to write the word "schism". And when I write the word letter by letter "sexism" isn't even an option. It suggests "seismic". Really? A manual user dictionary would override this issue and make for a much better user friendly experience. I don't think I've ever had an IME that DIDN'T offer this.
Yet another vote for editing the dang dictionary! I have too much junk in there, but I also have a ton of "custom" words so blowing the whole thing away is not an option that I want to consider. Editing one item at a time is awful, tedious and an absurd request of the user in my view...
Like everyone says.. Would be great to manage the dictionary. Not just "press long to add" that doesn't work. It always forgets the words and some others can't be removed. I'm using spanish dictionary and it's awfull cuz there are some new words and some useless words and I cant delete them. At this point i'm searching for a hack or something to edit the app..
Philip Kahn commented
Oh yes. SwiftKey had learned some programming "words", and keeps trying to autocorrect to them...

Make your dicionary editable for Christ sake or make replacement of your dictionary with my own possible! You have almost 4000 votes and over 100 posts here. Czech dictionary is almost useless and I believe that other non-english languages have similar problems. More and more frustrated and paying customer.
The stupid app doesn't learn anything and there's no option to manually add words. Also some words are being lost for no reason.
Does anybody know a good alternative
This is dumb. The context doesn't affect whether I want a word to ever be predicted, especially if it's misspelled or, equally as annoying, saved in the Swiftkey dictionary as permanently capitalized.

Ok but I tried to add my email or some url and never it was memorize
Rubbish. I can view my personal dictionary in another keyboard app.
I'm having the same problem as Johnny g. Luckily I'm still on the trial and probably won't purchase it. The predictions suck now.
Johnny G commented
Ugh! How did all my memorized disappear?? SwiftKey was working beautifully up until last week. Now all my names have disappeared and SwiftKey is not learning them! No matter what i do... This is so frustrating. Now SwiftKey has slowed me down considerably because I have to spell out my name in every email or text. I have to spell out my kids names too. What happened and why won't it learn the names again. It's as if SwiftKey refuses to acknowledge many of my old learned words at all costs. Including all of the email addresses that were once in my dictionary. Help!
