Thread: Swype Up to Capitalize Words On-the-fly

  1. #61
    Fyi - version 3.1.0 (released April 25 2017) still doesn't fix this issue. WTF?

    Update from Swype support - they intentionally removed it.


    So, despite all the data they gather and track in conjunction with our keyboard use, they had no idea how popular this feature was. Ugh!

    Well, it seems that the Product Manager(s) at Nuance were oblivion to the fact caps-on-the-fly was a unique feature that gave them a competitive advantage over other keyboard apps.

    Not sure why, but I detect a sense of stubbornness from Nuance when they mentioned that the feature was intentionally removed, even though many of us received somewhat positive feedback from Nuance Support several weeks ago that the feature was being looked into, implying that it may have been a bug.

    I've got to admit, several features that Swype still has makes it far better than others.

    I have rolled back to the latest version where the caps-on-the-fly works. I am happy :-)

    Adding my vote for this feature to be reinstated. Have also raised a zendesk ticket and voted Swype down in the play store. Thanks for the apk link to 2.2.3.

    Slightly curious as to why this is such a big feature for many. Generally the only words I want capitalised are after a full stop or a place name like London - both of which are automatic. Nothing more aggravating than having features you use removed rather than made optional tho.

    Please bring back this feature. I don't understand why it was removed in the first place.

    Agreed. I miss this feature VERY MUCH, and am rather pissed that it was removed. If you want to add an OPTION to turn it off, fine, but don't give us a feature for several years, then suddenly remove it!

    +1 for reinstating

    This was a critical feature for typing quickly, having to backtrack and fix the capitalization of words is an absurd alternative. This was my favorite feature of Swype and by demonstrating just this single feature I've converted at least 5 friends/colleagues to Swype from SwiftKey. It is literally impossible for me to fathom a decision to remove this awesome feature.

    Oh, I nearly forgot, until 3 days ago I had been using a very old and battered OnePlus One, it's so unbelievable to me that Nuance removed this feature that I had assumed the feature wasn't working because of my phone! Seriously, my decision to buy a brand new OnePlus 5 on launch day was, in part, because I desperately wanted my swipe-to-capitalize feature back on my phone!

    Back to 2.2.3 - and looking at the 3.0.1 release notes, not being able to use the Material theme (while showing the secondary characters) is the only thing I'm missing.

    Acronyms and EMPHASIS are both big ones for me (using the loop above the keyboard gesture).

    Then for simple capitalization a lot of names are also words: Mark, Sue, Bill, Bob; and there are other words which are properly capitalized when used as a title: Justice, Judge, Professor, Captain; or elsewhere in a name: Pacific Ocean, Jackson Hole, Mount Washington; and then there are titles of films/books: Suicide Squad, Rogue One.

    I also really miss this feature. I edit a lot on Wikipedia, and that often involves typing names of companies, book and movie titles, and so on, all of which require capitalizing a lot of words that are normally lowercase. BRING BACK THE SWIPE CAPITAL!

    I have been noticing an increase in the number of one-star (*) ratings on Swype's Google Play. I think one effective way to get Swype developer's attention and have them work on enhancing this caps-on-the-fly feature and bringing it back is to rate the app with a single start!

    I cannot think of any other way.

    Many of us have been emailing Swype support and some of us received a canned responses, and some received a response saying that it was an intentional decision to remove this feature.

    My two cents.
