What is your SwiftKey bug?

"spacebar will" is broken

Even though the spacebar is set to "always insert a prediction", it behaves just like the method "always insert a space". If I want to insert a prediction, I have to press the middle area above the keyboard. The two other inserting-methods are working as they are supposed to.
This wasn't a problem before Swiftkey 3. I am using a HTC One S with a Norwegian language and layout.

        Am the previous guy that commented earlier. I left SwiftKey for a while when the problem became unbearable and migrated to TouchPal X, but when I decided to give SwiftKey one more try with the same version (4.4.2) surprisingly the problem is gone and still is 2 updates later.

        But now I have another problem
        Device: Gionee Elife E3 also called BLU life Play
        Os: Android 4.2
        SwiftKey Version: 4.4.xxx

        Bug: my SwiftKey keypad lags sometimes when I am typing really fast, taking a long time to input the words long after I had typed them.
        This happens only when there is a memory card in my phone and SwiftKey shifts it's Files to the new external memory.

        Apps noticed on: Opera Web browser address bar
        Office Suite
        And right here in this text box

        Whenever I am typing in some text field in some sites like nairaland. com the same currently typed word disappears after hitting the space bar... It is very frustrating and makes typing showers since I have to backspace type the word again

        Oh for crap sake, this problem has been annoying me to death as I try to type, and i come to the support forums only to find out that it was first reported and acknowledged by SwiftKey Support back in 2012??

        FIX IT.

        I have been continually unimpressed with the SwiftKey staff when it comes to fixing bugs or improving small things that desperately need improving from a usability standpoint.

        For me the space bar does work, but continue typing after a comma or period only works when I insert and delete an extra space manually. Even on this forum it happens, but surely on every php forum I post on. Asus TF300 running stock Android 4.2 and latest SwiftKey, installed English UK, Dutch and German languages.

        For me the spacebar inserts the predicted text but when I press the predicted text it doesn't do anything now.

        I am having a problem with the space bar always inserting a period, despite me having it set to "always insert a space" checked in the settings. Why is this happening?

        The problem also exists in v4.1.3.149 on Galaxy S running CyanogenMod 10.1.2 for Afrikaans language.

        This is also broken for me when using the Korean module. English works fine.

        Still a problem for me as well. Using SwiftKey 4.0, English, Samsung Galaxy S II.

        In addition to forgetting spacebar settings, Swiftkey also forgets that I have on Rapid typing style and will stop autocorrecting my typing.

        Confirm that changing Spanish from Latin America fix the issue... Just changed to Spanish US and working again!
