    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.

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

        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?

        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 ) !!!

        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.

        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.

        Samsung S4 dutch prediction. Same problem. Pleae fix this bug or please delete the cloud funcion. This shit happens sins than.

        Still happening to me, and I am using a different language than English so it took too long to "teach" it the words to just delete all the language data... It does not happen very often, but it is the same words over and over again. Driving me insane! This is 6 months after you said it was fixed and I only started using it after that so it is not because the keyboard learned my words like that..

      • NickNick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same problem... is there any other keyboard that doesn't do this? I'm ready to switch. I can't figure out why this only happens sometimes and in mid sentence. I'm done with swift key as they are not fixing this for us.

        Samsung galaxy s5

      • Eric SchrepelEric Schrepel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Definitely still happening (just today even) on my Galaxy S4, Android 4.3. I can't for the life of me figure out why it capitalizes everything sometimes. A fix to this would be greatly welcomed.

        please fix this! i generally do not use capitals at all in texting and it's annoying to have to either manually fix words to remove the capital letter or just not use the predictive texting thing. even when i delete a word from the dictionary and re-enter it by using it a bunch of times w/o the capital letter, the words just get entered into the dictionary again as capitalized. for example, 'i'.

        nothing more annoying than having Lol and Haha capitalized every single time.. FIX THIS

      • Christopher Lee SmithChristopher Lee Smith commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Still happening to words I generally use at the start of sentences, it just capitalises them everywhere. Moved to Xperia keyboard until fixed.
