  1. Language Specific Punctuation

    Some languages like Spanish use different punctuation such as ¿ / ¡.

    These punctuation still show up even if I'm using a language that doesn't require them (like English). This also forces the normal "!" halfway across the screen.

    The only way to disable them is to disable Spanish. It would be nice to only have language-specific punctuation (similar to the setup with accent marks).

    Thank you!

      • Space before point

        it would be awesome if points wouldn't automatically be placed next to the last letter. e. g. if you want to make a smiley like "._." its really annoying if the first point is placed directly next to the last word... maybe make an option for enabling or disabling this function

                • Smaller suggestion bar

                  The size of suggestions and dead space between the suggestions and keyboard could be less or customisable to save screen visibility

                  • Stop predicting others' added names, cities, foreign and "popular" words that I've never used!

                    I'm tired of having SwiftKey predict words such as "Raja", "oui", or the ridiculously unlikely "async_load" and "Aung" that just predicted while I was trying to SwiftKey this post.

                    I understand that SwiftKey (not "Saudis", or "s.src") could have trouble differentiating between the words "post" and "past", but a lot of these predictions are way out there, and not even in my default language of English. I'll be switching back to Swype keyboard until I can SwiftKey an email without removing from MY dictionary eight words that I have never used in conversation, let alone in written text.

                    • Prediction of punctuation

                      With the "prediction of punctuation" you can write easily and quickly as better as you can.

                        Redesigned interface for the keyboard. I'm italian and for me is very important. Other colours and other fonts.

                          It is become disturbing when I'm about to enter email address and the keyboard adds empty space automatically betwen it just because the email address contains dot in it

                          • Speak as you type

                            Hi Team, Can I suggest you add the speak as you type option into your great keyboard? (like in ios, where you can click on speak and it reads out what you have typed) This may seem like a silly option, but to a dyslexic person this is a life safer, or at least prevents allot of embarrassment.
                            Thanks

                                    • Add an option to bring back the enter (new line) key instead of the send message key

                                      With the newest version I really miss the enter key in many applications, could you add an option to replace the 'send' key with 'enter' or 'new line' key! The option should be for phone and Tablet layouts!

                                      • Please allow capital letters more often to remember. It's ridiculous that I have to try extra hard to create a password with a capital lette

                                        Example. I type in email then type 10Chickens as my password. I am not able to do that without typing in a space after 10 and then going back to tap backspace key

                                        • Have punctuation available on keyboard next to letters

                                          Should have option for punctuation on keyboard next to letters rather than having to go to numbers keyboard
