        I definitely need this too, it's a pain to write sms.
        Also, in other places the characters appear as spaces or junk.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hello, i really need this! I write A LOT of SMSs. Swiftkey keeps announcing me how many characters it has saved me from writing...but more than half of them i had to delete and re-write because of diacritics. This is really getting frustrating and i am thinking of changing the keyboard. Please implement this!

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Wow, exactly 2 years from the idea and they still inform it is planned for development... I'd really like this and was planning to buy anything that makes this correction possible.

      • SergiuSergiu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Come on guys, we are pretty dependend of that feature.
        That's the missing feature to make swiftkey perfect!

      • Martin LebedaMartin Lebeda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If you do this functionality to swiftkey for SMS. I will buy your software. Until now it is really annoying. I think many new people would buy it with that function.

        Regards
        Martin

      • JirkisJirkis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I bought your app as I think it is really amazing! Please, implement to turn off diacritics and let us choose, whether to disable it only in SMS app, or everywhere. SLIDEIT already has this option!
        Then, it will be PERFECT.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I've been waiting for this feature for a long time, what's stopping you from implementing it?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        For me, this is the only thing missing from SwiftKey. With this it would literally be perfect. Because of national characters I can't use predictions properly.

        Please implement this. I am willing to pay extra to get it.

      • Bogdan M. Bogdan M. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am not a programmer. However I believe that for some languages there is an easy way. For example, for Romanian you can create a language file like *Romanian - no diacritics* to be downloaded, in which to replace special chars with simple correspondents (like ă with a, ț with t etc). I can guarantee that 99.9% from Romanian don't use diacritics anyway. This quick and dirty solution will let anyone choose the preferred setup.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is not impossible ........ do you need extre money for that? what is wrong with you ???...... put this on money 5 euro i'll buy it extra but fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • pavelpavel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I Dont know what is the big deal to code something so simple as removing diacritics :-( this thread have the most votes and is opened over the year. I would even PAY extra for this feature. Please make it work.

      • AdyAdy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to off a national characters in the sms or choose this option in settings also :)

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Uninstalled until this is fixed. I cannot use swiftkey with default sms program, cause it makes sms's 70 characters. How long will this be "planned"??

      • Mateusz PapiernikMateusz Papiernik commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is utterly unacceptable that such an important feature is still being only planned after so much time had already passed. I love SwiftKey for what it's got, but its Flow is useless without diactrics removal.

        I don't know whether everybody will enter this conversation, however I have heard many users speaking about it.

        Again your sincerely,
        Křenek Lukáš

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is an extremely important feature. I can't believe my crappy 8 year old phone I replaced with an Android device had this, and a flashy new HTC doesn't.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is still NOT implemented?
        biggest joke from swiftkey ever. but very bad joke

      • MarianMarian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This functionality is very important. I assumed that it will be in the new version (4.0)! Please fill it as soon as possible.

      • ludektalianludektalian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sorry... Please, delete this suggestion... I had wrongly set some setting... Working good with universal QWERTY layout... Is not necessary to do special CZECH... Thanks :-)
