      • Keyboard font size

        Hi.
        Would you please put a part in swiftkey settings to change keyboard font and font-size? The keyboard font size is so small for people that have vision weakness.

        Thank you in advance.

          • Emoji - Long press Enter key.

            In: Settings>Layout one can choose the superfluous option, "Enter Key: Always long press for emoji." That seems to be the default anyway, even when that box is unchecked! I hate emoji and never use them. It would be great to have the option to turn that particular long-press function off completely.

            • Let backspace key to undo the last prediction, just like in Google Keyboard

              The title is quite self explanatory. I think that one of the best functions of Google Keyboard is that you can undo the predictions when writing with a simple press of the backspace key. SwiftKey should really add it.

              • Idea - date - time? Visual status =?

                I'm distracted to read ideas by the lack of date and time. If only the age and actuality of it wld have a colour or shape to recognise it status, wld raise commu-quality. Am i dismissing something mobile?

                • Guard against input frm apps used for tracking

                  Got autosuggest recently, clearly originating from app Google Opinion Rewards - results (!), though NOT connected to SwiftKey cloud, can you prevent swiftkey from being misused by this tracking lookalike behavior?

                    • Fix minimal themes layout!

                      When using the new minimal themes, the separation in between the top letters and the predictions is too extreme. I think it is caused because even though you made the special characters transparent (or hid them), you still left the space they occupy on each key...why not center the characters and/or make them bigger so they occupy more space of each key. Thanks for this awesome update!

                      • Using flow and caps lock.

                        As in the Samsung swipe text... Once a word gets suggested not using predictive text... If u want to delete that word.. U need to press backspace once... With swiftkey u need to delete it in a longer method... This needs to be shortened.

                        Also caps lock button.. It is not very clear that what would be caps when u start typing... The next alphabet or next whole word.. It needs to have 3 levels of lighting like in the built in keyboard of android

                        All else is fine with swiftkey... The multipurpose alternate keys are a life saver... Is…

                        • Set Flow prediction to used previously used user words trump new ones. IMPORTANT.

                          Flow prediction seems to use English dictionary words over the ones that were used previously. Please make the user words trump new ones at 70% of the time. This is the one thing holding Flow back from being hands down the absolute best compared to Googles keyboard on the market.

                                You should create a new themes including a Minimal White keyboard. The Minimal Black is my favorite but I would like to have a Minimal White as well. Most other developers had designed one already, and I am waiting for you to design one as well. Thanks

                                • More minimal keyboard

                                  The new themes are great but it would even better if we could customize the typing experience. For example; if we could increase the space in between the keys and make the predictions bar and its font size smaller. With more space between the letters it could make the keyboard more tactile feeling (clicky) and making the prediction box smaller with finer print would save space. Also, it would be nice if we could disable the numbers and symbols that show up just above the letters so we would only see the letters, I think it would improve the aesthetics…

                                    • Black and red theme, Berry doesn't count

                                      A real black and red theme. Dark grey or black buttons with red characters and highlights like the pumpkin theme or holo theme. I know it's been brought up before. I really don't see why it wasn't included in the recent theme packs. Is it that hard to do?

                                      • SwiftKey Urgently needs a key to minimize the keyboard

                                        Why not having a key to minimize the keyboard whenever I need to do so, instead of having to press the back button every time I need to get back to the text I am editing? Please help us being more efficient at writing with SwiftKey. Thanks and regards from Mexico.

                                        • Have more symbols on the symbols screen

                                          One thing that I had personally, and I'm not sure how everyone else feels about this, but on my stock keyboard it had the numbers in a row on top on all screens, so for example you hit the symbols button it shows more symbols at once because the numbers were on top. If possible I would like there to be an option to where it does that instead of having a keyboard there.
