Please provide a way to disable Smart Space
SwiftKey used to be my only choice in keyboards, but since version 3 was released, I haven't used it due to the presence of the Smart Space feature. This feature has completely destroyed the usability of the keyboard for me. I do not want the keyboard inserting spaces for me. Please provide an option to disable this functionality.
Allow us to decide. Auto space is the cause of major frustration along with (less so) auto caps.
Simply let US be the judge and supply a menu option to turn it off!
When using swift key in quickoffice, instead of suggesting words, I get phrases. But selecting one of these enters a double word in my text since the first word of the suggestion is the previous word I typed. I need the option to turn off phrase predictions and only receive single word predictions.
make it possible to turn off smart space, this is really messing me up with my user name on certain apps. it worked fine with the last version
Smart space sucks, you go along all. Sudden it starts duplicating even though you're not trying to use smart space ex.. You type hey hit the word or space to complete then start the new word look up. And see hey hey+new word only noticed this bug on. Facebook Mobile Web pages but it is annoying
Could you please make a button so I can turn of "SmartSpace" Especially when you have two languages active, (Dutch and English) it makes totally ridicules predictions. In Dutch you have very long words and SmartSpace has tendency to brake those words up. Very annoying, sorry

Agree, there should be a way to switch this feature off. Not helping most of the time.
I totally agree. Please make it optional.
I can't type a url in a url registering website.. So annoying!
I really like this keyboard, except for the "Smart Space." I'm sure it's something I could get used to with time, but I feel like it is something that will take more time to get used to than it's worth. Please give us an update that will allow us to disable it if that's what we want. Seems like there is an overwhelming amount of requests for this simple feature, why not just give it to us?

Abelardo is dead right. Predictions and corrections are poorer now.
I absolutely agree. It should be just an option in the settings menu. And I would disable it inmediatly as it spends lots of resources (I mean space in the suggestions bar) in unuseful work. If the bar is the actual, the great key of SwiftKey, and it's there to help by suggesting and correcting, the most of my needs are within a word, not between words. Since the introduction of "smart space" the prediction skills of the keyboard are poorer. Just observe and think.
Its annoying. . . please add an option to disable smart spaces Its does not write correct password on many occasions especiall with "!" on Note II

Yes Please, this would be really amazing if you could provide an option to disable Smart space!
I'm now trying AI type as an alternative, as I'm so fed up with this space issue
Nicholas Poh commented
what happened to the old thread? anyway, please let us disable the auto space. or instead of inserting space after a word, add it before inputting a new word.
I love SwiftKey's default Cobalt theme, the layout, etc. What bothers me is the way that it automatically adds a space after punctuations, especially since I'm so used to pressing the space bar. I hope something will be done about this.
Bobby Simpson commented
I wonder if it would be better to automatically input a space BEFORE a word if and only if there is a preceding word or punctuation present.

Don't stress yourself out. A lot of us have already done so. There's some other threads about Smart Space, some with three thousand votes, and no response from the developers since a year ago. Try A.I. Type, it's not bad.
Justin Sidwell commented
This thing kills me on a daily basis. I don't like to swear at my S3. Please, do this now or I'm going to have to jump apps. Today I spent an hour trying to resolve a bad userId/password. Turned out to be dumb space leaving a hanging space at the end of each. 'ENTER' OR EXITING KEYBOARD NEEDS TO REMOVE FINAL SPACE. When would that be helpful!?
Donovan Dale commented
Not only should it not do this after period, it should NOT be doing this after ANY punctuation. You would not believe how frustrating it is to try to write someone's name and say Ryan's party, but to always get Ryan' s instead. Please remove.
I completely agree, there needs to be a option to turn off auto space after a period. Which is part of precise typing. I can not handle the auto space and having to go in Md deleting the double spaces I create, which slows me down. Or even better, auto deleteing double spaces!
El Carumba commented
Yes this has been addressed in many other threads but the suggestions gave been to make SwiftKey determine when to invoke the auto feature.
This idea is a plea just go turn it off completely.
El Carumba commented
Yes I agree. The most annoying thing is having to fight SwiftKey evertime I hit the period and a space appears. There should be an option to disable this either permanently or at the time.
When I am searching for a file in Total commader eg: fr*.* a space between the dot and star will break the search and it's all too easy to miss.
Jeremy Mullins commented
Chris V, that doesn't look like the same issue. this is about the feature that inserts spaces midstream...like replacing "spacebar" with "space bar".
