DROID 4: When I put a question mark after a word, the first letter of that word is capitalized. / hardkb
I am using a Droid 4 and have seen this bug since the last Beta but now it's in the released SwiftKey 3.
Any time I type a question mark the word before it is mistakenly capitalized. See what I am referring To?
It's annoying, isn't It?
This happens both on the stock rom and Eclipse 1.3.8
Android Vers 2.3.6
Swiftkey Vers 188.8.131.52
I'm running Go Launcher Ex, but it was doing it on the stock too.
This has been resolved with our latest update of SwiftKey 184.108.40.206. If for any reason you are still experiencing this issue or something similar, please create a new post in our public forum to bring it to our attention.
Thank you very much.
I am still having this issue with the latest version of SK. Did the bug come back?
David Grossberg commented
It's fixed in SK 4.2! Thank you!
If anyone starts complaining that shift at the end of a word can't be used to capitalize anymore on a physical keyboard, then please ignore them :-) (Or put in an option.)
Shame I can't use this otherwise great app because of this bug.
I love my DROID 4, and I'm just experimenting with SwiftKey and its competitors. I'll look for a competitor that doesn't have this bug, as it is very annoying and one would think easy to fix.
Same problem here. Please address this issue. Swiftkey has the best auto correct and prediction I have found but this bug is extremely annoying. I've stopped using Swiftkey for the time being because it has been more than a year and this has yet to be addressed. I understand the droid 4 is not a very popular device but help a brother out...
I originally voted up this problem a YEAR ago. It is very frustrating to go back and fix the last word of the sentence every single time. A year ago I received and email that this problem was in the process of being fixed....well??? Please update!!!!

Holy crap! I've survived a year of this BS. (comment posted 3/12/12) Sometimes I go back and fix the cap, but otherwise I leave it. This is REALLY frustrating.
I am VERY disappointed to read these comments dating back to early 2012 & to find that, as a new user with a Droid 4 I am still having the same problem! The only way that it does NOT capitalize every time at the end of a sentence when I add punctuation is if I go back & change the 1st letter of the last word in the sentence. SwiftKey is promoting itself as a faster alternative & this is in no way faster! It has made me seriously consider leaving & going back to my old way of typing if it is not fixed VERY SOON, especially now that I see that the problem has been known for well over a year and nothing has been Done!

For me, this behavior occurs with the question mark (?) and exclamation point (!), but no other punctuation. Colon (:) also requires a shift, but won't capitalize the word before it.
I am running SwiftKey 4.0. 0.0.106 on DROID 4 stock and am experiencing this problem with both hardware and virtual keyboard.
Guy Smiley commented
I have this exact issue. The behavior is directly conflicting between the exclamation point and question mark.
w, o, r, d, Shift, 1, results in "word! "
w, o, r, d, Shift, /, results in "Word?"
I found 2 work-arounds for the time being
-Turning off the hard keyboard autocorrect, but then you loose autocorrect (obviously
-Press the space bar before hitting shift and the "?" key. This will seperate the shift key from the last word and let you enter the question mark without the capitalizing bug. Swiftkey will even delete the space between the last word and the questionmark. One extra keystroke, but not that bad once you get used to it.
This also happens to me. I am using a droid 4 as well. You will notice this happens to ANY word if you press the shift key while typing the word it will capitalize that word, regardless of the question mark being inserted. The real problem is the app will capitalize a word if the shift key is pressed.
This needs to be a "feature" that can be disabled.
I am also experiencing this issue with the Droid 4. It is very annoying. Can you please fix This?

In hopes of adding awareness to get this bug fixed, I get the same behavior, so annoying. Also on a Droid 4, using the physical keyboard. I'll end this post with an example. When can we expect this issue to be Resolved?

This highly obnoxious bug, along with several others on the Droid 4, has made this once wonderful keyboard I've purchased more than once, highly recommended, and used for years completely unusable.
Ravi Kamble commented
I also have the same problem. Like others have stated, this problem only happens with the hardware keyboard (Motorola Photon Q).
Shannon Lynch commented
Happens for me too, physical keyboard on droid 4 running sk3.

I would love to see this fixed. It's really annoying.
