Turn Prediction Bar Off (option)
Der shud b an option to manually switch off d autocorrect, n still keep d suggestions on. D unavailability of dis option wil make ppl switch to another keyboard
Insert option On/Off por prediction, thank you.
Some people do not use suggestion bar placed over the keyboard. Please add an option to completely disable it to free some screen area.
Pouvoir choisir si l'on veut mettre la correction automatique
It is the one thing that separates this from perfect keyboard, so please, let us do little more customisation.
I really like the keyboard but I don't like it to predict what I write. people would know what I normally write! maybe I would have to change it for that, but I don't want to :-(
I do not want the keyboard to predict input in either virtual or hard mode.
You should put an option to show or hide the word suggestions bar.
can you add the option to remove the predictions please
I Want to turn auto correct off, and just choose words when I want.
It would be great if there was a switch / button to go into "Absolute Mode" so that there's no predictions, or auto puncuations and spaces - This would be useful for typing web URL's, or for example just trying to say "There's also a .com address" - Currently I have to do two .. the "com" and then back through to delete the unwanted characters.
Also, it would be useful for abbreviations, physical addresses, things like "e.g." or "p.s."
I woulf like to be able to yurn OFF predictive texts.
I dont use it at all. It is very distracted and annoying.
prediction are really annoying to me
So when you want to type a web address, some lines of program code, or even smileys or whatever, you can just hit this button to enter character-based input mode (turning off any word completion, auto spaces, auto punctuation and so on). Then when you are done, you could press the button again to turn word-based input back on.
This button would not even have to be on the main keyboard. A long-press action on one of the existing buttons would be enough.
I don'd use predictions.
So that for android phones who has a small screen can save some spaces and read the previous message as well as allowing the costumer to have the full personalization of the app.
Please make an option to add or to remove the prediction and suggestion from the setting
I would really like a way to turn off predictions
The ability to hide the suggested words in settings, and I use this a lot and I don't ever use the suggested words, the it completes flawlessly, and it seems a bit big with the row.. If you implement this I'd be very excited and happy to have bought this product
I want to stop the predictions completely! I just want the split layout! Also del and enter keys moved 1 row up will make things a bit more natural. When setting key height to max, the keys will appear big at first and then, when the prediction row appears keys get back to smaller size!
As title says...
I just love the keyboard, but i am not a fan of predictions, since it takes more time for me looking at them (in croatian) than typing the entire sentence by myself.
It would be nice if there is an option to disable prediction bar to save screen space, because in small screen phone like mine (xperia mini pro), i need more space to see what am i typing... And more support for hard keyboard, a notification to see that capslock and blue square keys are on or off, and also please make the region and Sym keys usable... :)
Just Add a button, or at least an option to disable all autocorrect and prediction features.
I like the idea of TouchPal currently does have to swipe the space to turn on/off all good things: becoming a dumb, conventional soft-keyboard which some times needed to input email, password, username, etc.
I live in Luxembourg and write regularly in french, english and german but also luxembourgish. As luxembourgish is not used by a lot of people please add a "No prediction" key so that we will be able to use your predictions for common languages but be able to switch to a no prediction mode quickly.
A tick option to hide the perdition bar
stop predictions with a button. in same website it make problems check this site. http://www.mts.com.ua/eng/sendsms.php#a. it double write laters.
Although phones tend to have larger screens I think that the space that status bar uses could be more appropriate for other things like having bigger keys or bigger textbox...
Could you please make an option to turn the prediction off?!
I think an ealier version had the possibility to do so, because I used the app on my last phone without prediction.
Prediction is nice, but I would like to decide if I use it or not.
Hello, I would like an option to turn off prediction.
Option to remove word bar from top of Keyboard but still use the predictive engine on so it gives you the middle word (its usually the right one)
I like the keyboard, but I don't use the prediction. I want to turn it off to save screen space. Also I don't like it storing things that I type(ie learning dictionary) .
For me these are blocking issues.
Yes, I'm tired of it showing me 3 options of what it thinks I may have said. I want that to b able to disable this. It wasn't always there. Please help!

Please how to turn off this stupid prediction bar
Muhammad Hafiz Ismail commented
This bar sucks even when typing into this comment
Some phones got smaller display like s3 mini. Or some peoples got fat fingers.
If you selling something you must think about customers satisfaction and ideas.
Add a simple check box for disable stupid prediction bar.

I don't understand why there's so much criticism and anger about the prediction bar in this suggestion, for which I get updates every days in my mailbox hoping that a dev answers it ?
The predictions and the predictions bar are the soul of Swiftkey. They make it the best Keyboard on android. If you don't get that, please just pass your way, because the thread isn't about that.
Could we please come back to the first idea of the poster of this suggestion :
quote: "there should be a key that can easily turn it off in case you need it for just a second."
"for just a second"... this is the point !!
As an example : Sometimes, websites are not well html coded and some fields aren't recognized as password's field or email. It is annoying and could be tricky to type a password with predictions turned on.
We would love you to add a little button to turn it off for 2 secs !
Nico G commented
I just installed Swiftkey. So far I really like it. Except that it has an annoying predictions bar that apparently can't be turned off. Worst is that it can't be turned off even though people have been asking for it for 3 years!!! That says a lot about the devs.
I know enough. Goodbye SwiftKey!

Why the F* can't I hide the stupid prediction bar down the bottom?
1) It is not usable with Remote Desktop software like Microsoft RDClient as it blocks sight of the Windows task bar, which is the most important section of the desktop screen.
2) Predictive text like that is not effective when using a physical keyboard. You can type faster than the time it would take to write a couple letters then select one of the predicted words.. Seriously my grandma could type faster than someone using the Predictive bar.
3) Why do you not allow me to opt out of the Predictive text bar? How hard would it be to turn some of your functions off? As an intermediate Android developer, I know that it would be a piece of cake.
Seeing that it is not usuable with a physical keyboard, ' gonna have to switch from SwiftKey to an alternate keyboard everytime and I definitely ain't gonna bother with that. Time to uninstall.. Bye.
Orrible when i use remote desktop app it cover windows start bar....

I haaaate it!!!!!!!
I normally love predictions, but there are sometimes when I have to write technical codes ore something very specific where it would be great to have a toggle button to turn them off
Maxim Reality commented
Yes, please add option to remove that bar. I'm using a tiny phone (Xperia Tipo) and in horizontal mode I can only see 3 short lines of text because the prediction bar takes up screen space. I don't want text prediction anyway.
Drew Mason commented
Turning predictions off easily (toggle button) would be great. I often use predictions however there are many times I just need it turned off while typing things (have periods in them) and it takes 5 times longer.
soo annoying i don't need predictions to finish my sentence for me
Please add turn off/on prediction bar.

The prediction is annoying sometimes, how to turned it off?
Jeff Roden commented
I agree with another commenter that the predictions used to be better but now there seem to be more off suggestions.
don't want word prediction
person that decided on this bar should get fired, I'm deleting app
Muhammad Yusuf commented
