        more than 2 years and no solution yet? does anybody even work on this issue or is it just being ignored?

      • ElishaElisha commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sometimes it works and sometimes not, for example, it's not working here when I type
        א then ) and then ב I gets:
        א
        א)
        א) ב
        (yes, the bracket flip from good one to wrong and change side)
        Instead of
        א(ב

        I also noticed the reverse parentheses, thought it was a necessary "idiosyncrasy", and automatically remembered to type them backwards when I needed them!

        STILL NOT FIXED.
        As sagie wrote: Any prefixing space is deleted, and you get open parenthesis followed by a space, when you really want space followed by an open parenthesis.
        I also agree with the next part... It's amazing how such a minor issue takes sooooooooo loooooooooooooong to fix.

        Hello, I have the same problem with )( in hebrew writing.
        Thank you for solving this and HAG SAMEAH

        Also, if I type: שלום and want to add ':)' then I get 'שלום( :' and I have to manually add a space after the word, and delete the space before the ':'.

        by the way, it happens with all types of brackets: <>, {}, [], <>

        I agree with sagie - I'm very disappointed with SwiftKey's disregard for paying customers. Look above - this was queued for the development team well over a year ago.
        I'm sorry I bought this app, and will never purchase another SwiftKey offering.

        Contrary to what Adi has commented here, parentheses are not exactly fixed in the new Swiftkey Flow.

        It is true - clicking the open parenthesis will (FINALLY) generate an open parenthesis in the text, however the spaces are still messed up... Any prefixing space is deleted, and you get open parenthesis followed by a space, when you really want space followed by an open parenthesis.

        My advice is to ditch entirely any current and future software offerings from SwiftKey, as they clearly showed zero concern for paying customers. Do not even get started with Flow, as it will be a paid app eventually. There are plenty of alternative offerings with much more responsive developers, some of them are actually free (a sign of the level of "commitment" from this developer).

        Almost totally fixed!!
        Current status is only that you need to use the opposite parenthesis.
        זה) סוגריים( רגילים
        ואלה (סוגריים) הפוכים

      • IttayIttay commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        it is not fixed in all apps. in go-sms, the open parenthesis is still output as a closed one.
