Turn on and off letter pop-ups/popups/popups
Setting to disable the key popup during keypress
To have option to turn on and off pop up keys
This app is awesome but it's annoying that I can't disable pop up key press. Actually is deal breaker for me. When unlocking lockscreen or entering password in some app is easily to see whoever is around me. Maybe someone already have mentioned it but I really think it's a must have option.
It lags my phone when I try to type fast. Plus it's distracting because it only appears for a quick second.
Please add the option to turn off pop-up on keypress.
I don't want the pop up of the keys but I haven't found a way to disable it. How can I do?
Option to disable / enable Keypopup would be nice
You know how, when you press a key, it shows the key you are pressing above your finger?. Presumably, this aids in accuracy. But on newer phones that have huge screens (and therefor a lot of keyboard space) this function is more distracting and a lot less necessary than it used to be. Please add an option to remove this function. Thank you.
When I type, what I type pops up. This slows down my typing speed. Please get rid or make an option to get rid of it
I would like an option to stop the letters from popping up when I am typing. It is distracting.
Able to slide select pop ups again:-) Number pad should be center, smiles pup up too big to be efficient. Redundant ,. on the . pop up makes slow ?!
I would like an option to have the popups and predictive of, cause you have already rapid keyboard. the pops and preds bother me when typing.
Option to get rid of letter popping up above keyboard while typing. Very distracting when trying to type fast. Popped up letters covers keyboard and slows down typing.
When entering a password field there should not be popup characters.
Es wäre super wenn man die Buchstabenpopups ausschalten könnte. Und am Besten wäre es, wenn wenn man sich seine Tastatur vom. Aufbau her selbst Zusammenstellen kann. Also ob jetzt bestimmte Zeichen angezeigt werden sollen oder nicht.
Disable the key pop - up while typing on the white keyboard as this seems to slow typing down
Please add an option to disable the key popups (theme independent). These popups have no sense, because nobody looks at them during typing.
Also a number row and a tab key for use on tablets would be nice. There is plenty of space available.
Option So key letter does not pop up when clicked. Can be annoying sometimes
I want to see the letter pop-up when I hit it. It's on the dark theme, but not in the neon theme.
When a character is touched it would be great if you show the selected character on top of it on all the themes like it happens on the dark and light versions. The pumpkin and neon themes does not show this feature.
Please add letter highlights to both pumpkin and neon themes. On other two and would almost perfect the app
I like the letter popups when using the dark or light themes, however, the pumpkin and neon themes are my favorite. Instead of having some themes with popups and some without, why not make it an option to enable/disable letter popups regardless of the selected theme?
Why can you not make the keyboards function the same, I like to see the
letter pop up as I type, it only works on the white and black keyboards.....
I like the neon option, but miss the confirming feel I get from the letter
pop ups as I am typing,
I find the character popup feature (a useless thing copied from iphone) very annoying. My first and foremost reason to use a different keyboard is that I want to get rid of this stupidity Steve Jobs forced upon iphone users and introduced to smartphone market.
The letters and numbers don't pop up when you press a key other than dark theme. Any ideas?
In the themes Pumpkin and Neon, there is no popup with the key just typed. This hinders usability of those themes. That's a pity, because Pumpkin otherwise looks really nice (I hope it will stay!)
The themes Dark and Light do work properly.
I would like an option to see the letters pop up. It would be nice to add options to extend the keyboard higher on the screen, similar to thumb keyboard. They allow for the customer to enlarge the keys.
Original android keyboard has the option to disable pop up on a key press. Would be nice to have that option.
Currently when any key is pressed, the bigger version of the key popups which can be distracting at times.. An option to disable this (like in the Touchpal keyboard) will be good
As you type using the "Dark" or "Light" theme, the key strokes are displayed above the keys. I feel these rather large images of the keys popping up as I type are distracting. Especially the space bar! It is one huge green/black rectangle. Totally not needed. The Neon theme, however, does not display the keystrokes above the keys.
There should be an option to toggle on/off the display of keystrokes above the keys when you type.
Please give the option to remove the .Com key because it is very annoying when trying to space and allow disabling of popup keys because that's unnecessary.
Would love the possibility to customize more; primarily in the SIZE of the keys and the constant popping up of the letters.

Useful for password, but no for rapid use. Keyboard is

I also would like this. I have no need for it and would like it disabled.
Is this ever going to be implemented? Seriously, it's not that hard and it's clearly a well-requested feature. What gives?

Yes yes please! In the Android Community there are many savvy geeks, and many among them are jealous of their battery life and RAM like no other. You can tell if they use black theme in combination with amoled screen. Please allow us to disable Pop-ups. The idea of it also appeals to my minimalistic lifestyle
Matthew Gonzalez commented
Disable this popup nonsense. PLEASE!!
I put 3 votes on this one. it would be a wonderful improvement
I don't need predictive or word suggestion too... Please make it can be turn off.
It would be better if the prediction bar would go away! But other than that it's good
Yash Mehta commented
Most of the other Android keyboards provide the option of disabling the character pop-up feature.
I'd like to disable for security reasons so no one could look over my shoulder and see what password I'm typing into my phone.

You can also add a delay time for these letter pop-up.
At the moment it pops-up to fast. I can't swype the word if the second letter is behind the pop-up. An other solution is to show up the pop-up in front of the text element instead of the keyboard..

Useful for 2 reasons:
1. It would speed up rendering on some devices.
2. Would eliminate the flickering in gray areas on devices like my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition when using themes that have blue pop-ups, like Nickel and Cobalt.
This is the only real reason I don't use this as my default keyboard. I don't need a key popup for when I type. I disable that in every keyboard app that is used. Since I can't do that here makes me not want to use this. Do you know how easy it is to get sensitive data by just looking at the screen as someone types in their user/pass on their smartphone when this is enabled? Very easy.... Also I don't need the popup to confirm what I'm typing. I try and look at the screen when accuracy matters.
What is so hard about enabling this as an option for the users that don't want that annoying key press popup? Also if I could put all my votes into this I would.
Please add the ability to disable the letter popup during keypress.

Total yes to this. I voted 3. If I can I want to give all my votes to this feature request until it is implemented!
The pop up is to ensure the user that they type the right letter. But the point of having a sophisticated prediction engine is to make you not worry about typing the the correct letter. So i really am surprised by the illogical decision to not have an option to disable the popup
This. I really hope this will be in the next version. It amazes me to see this is still under review from 2012. It should really not be very hard. Every other keyboard have this. And this should be the first thing to be present in every keyboard. It annoys me without end. This and being unable to disable the multiple language prediction is the reason why I keep trying new version of swiftkey and uninstall it a few day after.
Swiftkey keeps bloating the keyboard with things like emoji without considering to really polish the base of what make it great.

This honestly shouldn't still be an issue. This really can't be that hard to fix. That popup can't be generated by more than one function call, just add in a check in the function for the setting that was set. That's all you need. Why hasn't this been done yet?
