    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.

        Guys hit the "contact support" button on the right side panel and it will let you email their support. Tell them about this issue and tell them to solve it.

      • MohamedMohamed commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I think to solve this there should not only be a fix to not learn words in capital by default, but also an option to turn off capitalization mid sentence except for "I". Many people don't like to capitalize things like names, locations, countries, and we shouldn't be forced to. It's even worse when you have a sentence with some names capitalized and others not. And finally it's unacceptable when you have Internet capitalized in every single use. We already have the shift key which works great to capitalize words both before and after we type them. So please give us the option to use the keyboard like we want to.

        Still happening for me as well, we need an ADMIN here to recognize this issue once and for all! This is my only big problem with swiftkey but it is a HUGE issue. Words that are almost always capitalized: Windows, Internet, Explorer, and a bunch of others. Now things have gotten worse because the keyboard has learned to always capitalize: Haha, Hey, and Hello because I always use them at the start of sentences. This is getting out of hand and needs to be fixed, it's making me feel like I wasted money on this keyboard and could have just stuck with Swype.

      • EvanFEvanF commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I FOR Sure Thought There Would Be A Fix FOR This By now. As you can see per my first sentence, there is not.

      • HakimRHakimR commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is still an issue for me. Words get capitalized mid sentence. It is getting very very annoying.

      • TomTom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have issues with "we" always being capitalized but only when I write in Dutch. Would've hoped there was a way to manually correct the autocorrect dictionary. Otherwise very happy with the product!

      • EelcoEelco commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Messes up in Dutch a lot. It continues to spell one of the most common words 'ze' (= 'they' ) in caps. Corrected it numerous times, no improvement. Really annoying. The word suggestions are in ALL CAPS. Wtf?

      • David BullerDavid Buller commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is total rubbish. This is nearly a year and still not fixed. Even if I use the half baked workaround by deleting capitalised word, it thinks that is the only instance of the word. So if I delete Manana it also forgets manana is a real word.
        Useless

        This has been happening to me for a while. So annoying. Capitalises initial letter often, and doesn't learn. IMHO Swiftkey has been getting worse recently, not better. Suggesting ridiculous combinations of words.

      • David David commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This has come back again. It was fixed months ago and now it's back. Grrr.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        OK (<~~~) this is still happening with me as well. This is the first time it hasn't capitalized every word today. Also, it doesn't save words I use all the time. My name is Candi and it changes it to Candice or Cando. SO ANNOYING! I have an S4 and it didn't start doing this until after the last update. Anybody ever get theirs fixed?

      • LisaLisa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        my trouble is with typing ok and OK
        how do I re - set that ? It's really
        hard when someone asks How are you?
        and I say, " I'm OK ( Oklahoma ) !!!

      • Mon MonMon Mon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just installed swiftkey. It capitalizes every word I type and it's annoying. It should only capitalize the starting word of the sentence and not every word. Touchpal X keyboard also has auto capitalization and I like the way it capitalizes "only the starting word" of the sentence. I think I'm going back to touchpal x if this is not fixed. They say that it is learnt, but it should learn by not auto capitalizing every word immediately, apply only the capitalization to a word after it is learnt not capitalize the word by default. Also how hard it is to detect a start of a sentence? Seriously...

        The problem still exists for me. The solution mentioned by the dev where the lower case will be learned over time hasn't worked for me over the last 6 months. Here's a test to prove it. I want to just say "look it up using the internet" and other sentences but when I swype here's what I get:

        Look it up using the Internet. He was a great Explorer. I went to new York (awkward when I want to write it all lower case.BREAKTHROUGH: now selecting the word and hitting shift actually works correctly! Before it wouldn't let you remove the capital, you had to do it manually! ).

        I can confirm that the problem is still there with the Turkish language pack. Haven't tried English yet.

      • RichardRichard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Whit the new version 5 i typed allot today and haven't seen this bug yet. I hope it is gone now. Can other people confirm this? Thank you.

        Been a long time user if SwiftKey but after reading this I'm saddened to see it's been totally ignored and directly lied about right here. regretfully I'm done waiting for a fix. Dumping this keyboard and won't be recommending it anymore. gfys SwiftKey.
