Thread: Swype constantly asks to change keyboards

  1. #1

    Swype constantly asks to change keyboards

    I have the samsung s8+ with swype 3.2.2.3..... At least 10 times every day Swype asks me to change keyboards to Swype.

    I only have Swype and the default samsung keyboard installed. Is there any way to stop this behavior?

    I think it started happening on the last Swype update.

    Same problem here with a Samsung Galaxy s8, no way to reproduce the problem intentionally, it happens when it happens, most of times works like expected but 5 or 6 times each day they told to select Swype as default keyboard when Swype is still the default keyboard

    You need to switch off and switch on Swype then select Swype as default keyboard... Really annoyed...

    Regards

    Edit: I forget to tell that a friend with an s8 have the same problem

    Hi, just to chime in, observing the same issue on my Note 8. Randomly throughout the day it will request me to select Swype as the main keyboard even though I have not used any other keyboard.

    The app pops up, asks me to activate the keyboard. It's already activated, so I have to deactivate and activate again. Then it asks me to select Swype as the active keyboard.

    I have also tried Swiftkey and have not observed this issue.

    1. It's hard to provide screen shots that shows what is the issue. Basically when we try to input text, the Swype first launch screen appears, the white screen with an orange circle with an arrow to the right inside. Asking us to enable Swype as an input method. I will try to do a video but it won't be easy. It's random and that means I have to start recording many many times.

    2. For me it's Android 7.1.1, Samsung Note 8 2017.

    As shown, it shows the keyboard setup screen, but it has already been activated and used many times before.
