What is your SwiftKey bug?

Not working in Polaris Office

When I type in a Polaris Office document. SwiftKey is not working correctly. eg when I type John it gives the followingtyr
J, JJo, Jjoh, Jjonh. The Auto correct suggests John but pressing it leaves Jjonh.

Other sequences gve strange multiple combinations too. Reverting to the Android keyboard gives correct type.

Also when editing on web pages the green arrow doesn't properly follow the cursor

        For the record, swiftkey tablet legacy worked fine forever on my Asus Transformer Infinity using droid 4.2.1 until tonight. Started doing the gibberish bit. Double types some letters, randomly "autocorrects" half the pile to other gibberish. May or may not be able to delete some characters, but when you get to the first undeletable character, the rest are non selectible or deletable.

        Didn't notice any cursor errors, and it does it with or without the transformer keyboard base attached. Swapping to google keyboard eliminates issue.

        Updated to swiftkey proper, problem remains.

        Guys, Polaris office is completely crap. With Google giving away the much better Quick Office and Kingston office also free and much better, we should all stop asking SwiftKey to waste time and effort on trying to make their software compatible with an app that isn't worth having. It's just a shame Samsung, ASUS, HTC etc insiti on building it in to their systems with out an uninstall option. It's just more useless bloatware

        SwiftKey only gives partial functionality in Polaris Office - the keyboard is there and can be used, but the dictionary, predictive text and auto correct aren't available. No problems in any other apps.

        Model: HTC One
        Android version: 4.4.2
        SwiftKey Version:
        Polaris Office version: 5.1.3306.05

        I'm getting a similar problem but in Google Drive with Samsung S3 Android 4.1.2 with SwiftKey SwiftKey is unfortunately unusable.
        To recreate, open a new document in Google Drive,
        start typing numbers (which have already appeared and so have something to autocomplete.
        It autocompletes too much:
        Typing "4559 856" gives the result
        4559 4559 4559 856
        (i.e. the 8 makes an extra 4559 appear, the 5 makes another appear)
        backspace then deletes the last "6" and adds more "4559":
        4559 4559 4559 4559 85

        I have the same problem. Typing in Polaris office produces this: tpi gnigii ninporrrraloaaoiiiiffofocssssuacuctssihtitt otohaeeppa. bacpppppskcscdsseodedn tontnwkrowww

        Using the backspace key does not work at all. in fact it added the last three W's at the end. I'm using an asus transformer tf300t and the asus external keyboard, but this happens whether i use the external keyboard or not.

        Kingsoft Office --> Works, but NO swype and NO dictionary
        Polaris Office --> completely unusable

        Please, solve the problem! I also purchased this app!

        I am having the same issue using SwiftKey4 on my Asus Transformer TF700, neither the split keyboard nor the traditional keyboard layout are functioning properly.

        Swiftkey does not work on my HTC One. It only allows me to type but not to swipe. Please fix!

        Same problem with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" I wonder if anyone is working on the problem.

        More info: The 123.123.45 problem I reported previously happens just the same on a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 phone (phone version of SwiftKey) with Android 2.3.6. This means that the problem is general. It must be easy to reproduce and investigate.
        Do this and fix it properly and, I'd expect, other manifestations will be fixed too.
