Thread: Backspace long-press function time/delay issue

    Backspace long-press function time/delay issue

    The time it took to hold backspace in order to delete an entire word used to be the same value as the rest of the keyboard's long-press functions. The delay before it deletes the whole word is way longer than the 250 ms long-press value I set it to in the options menu.
    The last update seemed to increase the speed a bit, but it's still not at the correct speed. I'm running the app on both a Google Pixel (7.1.2) and a Samsung Galaxy S8 (7.0). This really slows down my typing experience and is giving me the desire to try alternative keyboards, even though I love Swype. Even though the features are great, if I can't type the fastest on this keyboard, I'll be forced to move on.

    Can you please reduce your long press delay value to 200 ms and share your experience

    Changing the long press delay to 200ms doesn't help. I changed it to 200ms, then tested it by long pressing a bunch of keys, then long pressing delete. On both phones, the delay was significantly longer for the delete key than any other key pressed.
