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.
under the language/input settings of your android device you can create your own personal dictionary which seems to work very well with swiftkey...I use crazy words at my job and it seems to work just fine
"If your spacebar is set to 'always insert a space then just tap the space and the word you typed is inserted."
Mine is set on this setting but when I try to enter a new word in this method it does not learn...Please fix this or add a way to have our own individual dictionary where we can enter words and combinations of words...
The method to remove incorrectly learned words does work, just tried it.
Thanks guys!! You are doing great!
also some predictions are annoying. for example i am always removing the word "Musta" and trying to attempt swiftkey to learn "musta" (small m), but still it tries the word "Musta" instead of "musta" so manual editing of the dictionary is a must.
This is really frustrating. We really need a way to modify user dictionary.

Can the dictionary just be wiped out? That would be a big help.
I've used swiftkey for a long time - 3-4 years? - and it worked great to start. It's been getting worse as the dictionary just picks awful, awful choices now. I first noticed some odd words right around the "1 Million characters saved" notice.
To those considering a purchase, you will love this app but only for a year or two. Then it just dies with no easy way to fix it...
Came here to learn how to delete a misspelled word from the dictionary (tiramasu, and it leaned it first time!) but after a quick read tried damn and Lara.
It learned both straight away, and on trying them again damn came up on the d, and Lara came up on the r.
(Galaxy Note 1, Jelly Bean).
Personally I find it difficult to fault this app, and I have it installed on all three of my Android debices.

After many months of using SwiftKey, many typos have incorrectly been learned, as real words. I often find myself typing very standard words but SwiftKey inserts something that isn't a word, but that it learned previously when I mistyped it.
we need a list of all the words in the LEARNED dictionary that can be edited or deleted.

+1000 on this one!
Sometimes I need to enter (and edit) my own words and remove those stupid hastag words learned from twitter/facebook instead of manually removing them one by one..

I'm going back to the stock 4.2 gesture typing keyboard for Android until SwiftKey gets a manual dictionary.
This is the only feature keeping SwiftKey from being the best keyboard on Android.
I'm on the 30 day trial. Unless this feature is added, I won't buy your app.

I'm sorry but this training of the keyboard doesn't work accurately enough.
On my Samsung Galaxy S4 I don't get these menus to add or remove even if I long press any predicted word. I have the exact same issue as about a 100 others have mentioned below me.
Wouldn't it be incredibly useful and helpful to all of your paying customers if you just added a user defined dictionary and allowed them to add or remove words from it with considerable ease?

Seriously. I'm getting so frustrated. It learns nothing. The word 'damn', again, comes up in the left side and I tap it. Now when I type 'damn' it shows up in the middle. I close the app, go back in, type 'damn,' and it's on the left side again. IT NEVER LEARNS ANYTHING.
Matthew Fry commented
Sarah, please readdress this. Please give us the ability to add words we want instead of forcing us to try and train the keyboard. What exactly is the point of having a predictive keyboard force you to tap out the word 20 times accurately before it will predict it? I've typed 'damn' into the keyboard tens of times and it *still* refuses to recognize it. I've even typed 'damn' 20 times in a row to no avail. Either learning doesn't work with "always insert a space," or it's too difficult to get a word added to the dictionary. Either way, this would be resolved by allowing you to manually add words.

The name of my daughter is never written correct. And it is a really easy name: lara. But I never get this name.. There's only Lars. And I wrote my daughters name very often. :-(
Yes please, it would be quite useful to be able to delete some words that were added by mistake, or add our own words, without having to do it while typing. Just make a customizable list, like Android's default keyboard, I don't think it's that hard, it's a common request as I see.
I want to get control over my own words. I want to edit, import and export them. Sarah, you didn't read the title, do you?

There may be a real-time processing/indexing from edited text file to active vocabulary in ram that they have not managed to figure out yet; I don't know, my expertise is only in dictionaries, not in programming them.
Dimmie Azu commented
No way to create custom auto-correct lists?
No way to edit the user dictionary??
No way to import or export it???
This keyboard is a joke...
This is all they need to be the best keyboard ever. I don't use any other keyboard, but having a user dictionary would lock them in place as only keyboard.
Sorry, the lack of this feature has annoyed me for the last time. No matter how many times I tell it to use the word I want, it autocorrects to another one, eventually going back 2 or 3 times to actually get it to use the word, or worst yet, when I am on another text later and I use the same word, and it autocorrects. I'm not going to wrestle with my keyboard to learn all the shorthand or in-joke words with my friends. I should be able to edit the dictionary. Until this feature is included, I will be using another keyboard and regret my purchase of this product.
