Unexpected capitalized words midsentence
When typing ok on the keyboard it comes up as OK without me saving it like that. Even after deleting and reassignment of ok, still predicts OK every time
SwiftKey always autocorrects ok to OK. Even though I tell it to never predict that. Looks like like I'm screaming at everyone.
First off, great app! I use the Dutch language pack and since a few updates the auto correct automatically applies capitals to word that don't need capitals. It does this since a month or so. I now it sounds like a small but but it's really annoying correct at least one word per sentence. Thanks!
Auto correct and/or prediction has not been working right for about two months. For example :
Me: I really love to watch TV.
KB writes: I really Love to watch TV.
Me: I went with John to read a book.
KB: I went with Jon to red a book.
The keyboard is constantly changing the capitalization of words that don't fall into the NAMES category and there is no rhyme or reason to it. Also, after carefully watching how I spell things, I have noticed that the keyboard is also changing the word I type for another word. It is not until I hit the backspace button and manually click the word on left that it will take it. Again, it is randomly doing this as well. I could type the word "we'll" and have it end up changing the word to "well". It is getting VERY frustrating to have to correct auto correct. Please fix this!
Very unnerving. SwiftKey will predict a capitalized word in the middle of a sentence. I pressed to remove that prediction a couple of times, hoping it would revert to the low-case word, but no, it still keeps offering only the capitalized version of some words that are unfortunately very commonly used. This happens both in French and in English.
Seems like this is a reoccurring issue, spread out at random times. I'm getting random capitalized words in every message or sentences that I type. Middle of the sentence. It's still annoying now too. Please fix.
Pretty much what title says. Corrects "you" to "You."
When typing normally cased sentences the keyboard often chooses replacements in all capitals.
Example I could type the word "best" in lowercase, in a normally cased sentence and the keyboard will change it to "BEST" in all caps, even if the word was spelt correctly in lowercase.
Shouldn't the autocorrelation behaviour recognise that I am not typing a sentence in all caps and correct accordingly?
A fix has been implemented recently, but it’s not retroactive and it will a bit of time before the correct lower case words are learnt instead of the capitalised ones.
This is a new issue for me. It developed about a month ago (long after the proposed fix). Is there any update on a proper fix?
Having the same problem. Swiftkey capitalizes a mid-sentence English word when I am using two languages (Tagalog).

This just started happening to my device... If the fix was implemented in Dec 2013 then whatever that fix was should have been active before my device started going bonkers today. This seems like it's at least the third time this bug has occurred on your production code. I suggest adding it to your test suite.

SwiftKey has been behaving weirdly lately. It's capitalizing random words in the middle of sentences, and it stopped predicting and recognizing words as well as it did one month ago, apparently by no reason...

Started happening to me a few weeks ago. Very annoying.
The only way I've been able to fix it is by typing the sentence in which the unexpected capitalized word occurs about 5 times and selecting the lower case word each time. But there are so many different capitalized words that it's really no use trying to fix all of them this way.

The kernal version is 3.4.0-1921628
Android version 4.3
Build number: Jss15j.1337Ucuemk2
Same problem here, completely up to date as far as I can see on Android 4.4 with Swiftkey 188.8.131.522
When I remove a word from the dictionary, and add it without capital letter, it shows up next time with a capitalized first letter. I just tested this, and it's still a problem.. I don't get why SwiftKey is trying to remember capitalization at all to be honest. I'd prefer if it'd leave that to how I've set my shift key when starting the word..
I've deleted Sometimes several times but it still keeps happening. Very frustrating.
The problem has resolved itself entirely over the past three weeks.
Yup, I have this issue. Every word I have added to the dictionary in lowercase will appear capitalised when suggested/predicted. It's incredibly annoying.
As an aside, what the hell happened to Swiftkey?? I'm pretty sure that when I used it a few years ago the predictions actually felt a little spooky, like it could read my mind! Now it's a complete shambles, predicting words that don't make any sense whatsoever in the context. Upsetting.

Still not fixed! It's not a matter of retroactivity, it still capitalises words at its leisure. Incredibly annoying.

My guess is this issue is occurring because Swiftkey "learns" a word like "Thank", occurring at the beginning of a sentence, as different from the word "thank" in the middle of a sentence. This is silly. Please fix this, Thank you!
Uninstalling. The keyboard is great, but this piece of sh*t won't recognize my city (predicts "Julie table" instead of Juliet, every single time. It won't learn the correct way). And it capitalizes OK no matter what I do.
Very annoying issue. Doesn't seem to be fixed yet. I'll be looking for an alternative keyboard soon if no fix is forthcoming.
This is so very frustrating. I had to uninstall swiftkey. I see this is a known issue and has been for some time. Why hasn't this been fixed? We shouldn't have to retrain our swiftkey when we didn't cause this to happen in the first place. This is unacceptable that paying customers have to go through this.

My Galaxy 10.1 Note 2014 keeps capitalizing the word before an exclamation mark if no space is left.
No problem with full stops though.
Eg I don't know why it does This!
@Evan Tapper How should we handle the mistakenly capitalized words in the meanwhile? Remove them from the prediction bar? Choose them from the prediction bar and then edit to change the capital letter to lower case? Thanks
the some happens to me. in english im fighting with the keyboard for almost even word. Bad predictions all the time
