About predictions with eg åäö
For example, when writing Swedish words like Sa, it will autocorrect to Så. This is bad, åäö is on the other side of the keyboard and nobody ever would type a instead of å and ä. Please fix this for us Swedes
When using a Swedish keyboard, the 'a' button will cause collisions on words such as "har", "hår" and "här", where the word "har" obviously is the correct one. There is no reason what so ever to have the keys on two places.
In Swedish language Å, Ä and Ö is considered as unique letters,not umlaut versions of A and O. For a swede there is little sense in getting suggestions with words replacing A with Å and Ä. A is in the other end of the keyboard and not likely to been typed by mistake instead of Å or Ä.
I guess there is a point in this function for other languages, but is there any possibility to prevent this behavior when writing in Swedish? (And i suppose Finnish, Danish and Norwegian)
Norwegian qwerty layout predicts wrong. Example: The "å" and "a" are on opposite ends of the keyboard but are predicted as if used on the normal qwerty layout without Norwegian letters, meaning they are treated as if they are on the same button. Very frustrating when using the rapid style as they will never learn what you want. Example: trying to write "har" with miss type "gar" predicts "går".
When using swedish layout it is very unnecessary to have ö and å on long press on the a character since they are already on the main keyboard layout. Same with ö on o.
When long pressing on "a" i Always want the @ character since if I wanted å or ö i would have just pressed them :)
In SwiftKey 3, typing “a” and “o” on the Swedish keyboard layout won’t bring up word predictions containing “å”, “ä” or “ö”.
When using the English QWERTY layout, “å”, “ä” or “ö” will still be accessible as alternative characters of “a” and “o”.
But there will rise another problem: when you DO want to write "så" it only suggests "sa" and bunch of other words. Here is my report: http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116693-2-swiftkey-bugs-/suggestions/3012641-incorrect-autocorrect-when-writing-swedish-words-w

A remainder from the days when Swiftkey didn´t had å,ä,ö on the keyboard. I have reported this a long time ago, but can not find the post anymore, but I really hope that the fix will come soon...
I guess that would be the case for danish, norwegian, finnish, icelandic and finnish too

Would love a comment on this one...
It's sad that thye reintroduced this bug again, and its even more sad that they refuse to do something about it.
You can remove them yourself from charactermap.json in Android\data\com.touchtype.swiftkey.phone.trial\files\sv_SE. Be sure to backup the file first just in case you get it wrong. And every time an update is downloaded for the swedish language you have to redo your edits.
There are also definitions for é and è as secondary characters for e in that file but it looks like that is broken as you only get the number 3 when long-pressing e.
