What is your SwiftKey bug?

Missing characters on top of letters (secondary or alternate characters or numbers)

After the upgrade I am missing the characters on top of the letters. For example the number 8 is not displayed on top of the letter i as it was before. It still works to long press the i to her the number 8, but I have to guess where the characters are. What can I do to fix this?

        all secondary/alternate (parenthesis, percent symbol, underscore, etc.) keys wont appear on either the keyboard or the actual message

        Turkish chr "ı" appears correctly by long press "i", but chr. "I"  doesn't exist when uppercase "İ" long pressing.

        (Language Turkish and English both Selected)

        version 3.0.0.302 fixed the alt symbols/numbers disappearing bug for me !
        thanks

        Nexus S - CM9 - French Azerty layout.

        Same here

        Galaxy Nexus, ICS 4.0.4 for any language layout.
        Actually I can see that characters are actually not missing but rendered too high in the key rectangle, so clipping is done.
        For instance I can see a few pixels of the lower part of the parenthesis or @ alternate character

        Samsung Galaxy S2, all apps for which typing is needed.
        ROM: ICS VK http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1559009

        I have uninstalled the swiftkey app, rebooted, titanium backup restore the app+data, reboot and selected the default keyboard as being swiftkey again. Now i have my secondary characters back.

        (the backup was made when i didn't see the secondary characters)

        Galaxy S III : the problem appears with AZERTY layout, not QWERTY

        I see this bug too, very often. It happens almost every day. I fix it by restoring the last backed up Swiftkey copy from Titanium Backup.

        HTC One X, and well... I have not noted that this happens more with any apps in particular... it just happens:P

      • mgmg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same here on HTC One X. The characters seem to be there though, they're just above the visible area. For example, I can see the bottom pixles of characters like (, ) and @.
