  1. Customize placement of special characters

    It would be very nice to be able to customize the placement of special characters like & #@+ etc.

    • You should be able to add symbols to the long press on punctuation

      It would be nice to have the possibility in settings to modify what quick symbols you want in the punctuation long press, the one that currently only have "!" "," "." and "?" to maybe also include "-" or "&" or whichever else symbols you may use somewhat much.

      • Hold down a word for SwiftKey to memorize

        Often for me when texting with friends we make up words that a are not real but just for our personal use. I think there should be an option to long press a word after you type it and have a memorize button along with the never predict again option

          • Capital I

            This isn't a new idea, but I cannot figure out whay Swiftkey still hasn't implemented the capitalization of the letter "I" when using the English(US) language pack. Even beyond that, when I type the letter "I" and then correct it from lower case to upper case, why doesn't it remember that I type that letter that way every single time?

                    • Me gustaría poder modificar el tamaño del teclado, la posibilidad de ajustar el tamaño del teclado es una muy buena funcionfunción.

                      Poder ajustar el tamaño del teclado a la hora de ver contenido en pantalla es muy útil ya que se aprovecha al máximo la pantalla en ocasiones específicas, por ejemplo: quiero ver un video y enviar un mensaje al mismo tiempo, el teclado ocupa espacio y no deja ver el video de la mejor manera posible, aquí lo ideal sería poder hacer el teclado más chico. Y hay ocasiones en las que se ocupa hacer el teclado más grande.

                      • Problem: Add a language results in deleting of customizied words

                        Hi,
                        I added English to my used languages, which results in deleting all of my learned words...what is incredible frustrating.
                        I see no real sense in this behaviour!

                          • Recognize when known nouns are made possessive and do not autocorrect.

                            ie. Frank's becomes Frank' or Frank. It takes me two tries to describe a noun's possession of something with swiftkey.

                            • Work on better prediction quality when a key on the bottom row is pressed. (space, period, comma)

                              SwiftKey does a great job at predicting words even when you completely mangle the spelling by hitting the wrong keys. EXCEPT, if one of those wrong keys is on the bottom row (space bar, period, comma, etc.). Those keys act like hard keys that override any prediction logic. For example, if I intended to press 'b' but miss it slightly and graze the space bar instead, it's all over. The current word fragment is replaced with a useless prediction, and the second fragment of the word is replaced with an equally useless prediction. This behavior happens A LOT, and is…

                              • We Arabs, use English letters in addition of some numbers to write Arabic words, it's faster for us to type like that, so I believe you can

                                We -Arabs- use English letters in addition of some numbers to write Arabic words (we name it Franco-Arab), it's faster to type like that, so I think you can add that like a new language with a new layout, If you added those numbers to the layout with the letters so we can type more comfortably, I don't mean like a row of numbers, no I mean, a letters beside a numbers so it's like a qwerty having numbers between its letters, and so we can use the flow to type with.
                                we use Numbers:

                                • Pressing the shift key with a word selected does not capitalize the other suggestions.

                                  When I am typing I will occasionally spell a word or a person's name that SwiftKey does not recognise and it defaults to lower case for all the suggestions, Usually my custom word will be the option on the left and if I press shift SwiftKey only toggles the capitalisation of the center word. Please can you add an option to toggle the capitalisation for all the other suggestions as well.

                                  Thanks.

                                      • Fix delete in OneNote - you can't hold the delete button down and delete whole words in OneNote

                                        This may be a bug... When you long press the backspace key, it will not erase whole words in OneNote

                                        • Swipe through the period mark

                                          Swift key flow should be able to swipe through the period mark to add punctuation. For example to distinguish between 'were' and 'we're' swipe the period between 'e' and 'r'
