Xposed mods replace those resources incorrectly unless they update their mod.

So even though it looks like it's working fine you might get a Swiftkey update with new resources that xposed might not have updates to fix it. I had to research this to fix an issue I didn't cause to prove it wasn't me. So yes I HATE XPOSED with a passion! I understand it makes like easier for some... I use bluestacks with xposed and it always crashing apps. So I rarely use it. Not something I would trust either.. In not saying all mods are BAD but if you can avoid a lot of mods then do so.

Lol

No Beta's get love... Only official. Not wanting their bugs, we'd get their reports of their bugs. Official updates less.... Yatta yatta.... Just no real need to use time on beta builds. Sowwy

Well said I came to this conclusion also. Since I've boycotted xposed I've basically had no issues on any ROM.

Love this keyboard. Thanks for the dedicated number row.

On the Google keyboard, long pressing the "." brings up other punctuation options such as ", /, # etc. Any chance you could have those frequently used punctuation options in that?

The dedicated number row is a default SwiftKey option. You just have to enable it in settings. You should thank for this to the SwiftKey dev team not here.

Guys this is not a modded SwiftKey. It's just having new themes in it. Stop asking for new functionality. And what you want is already in. You can longpress the period to have several alternative punctuation symbols.If you would like to have ALL symbols there then hell NO, I hope they'll never add this. This is EXACTLY one of the reasons for which I like swiftkey...cause it is not similar with the default keyboard. You have all the frequently used symbols as long press on other keys, no need to have a dozen of symbols popping up when longpress on ".", this will just make typing slower

Seriously?

A simple, "sorry, that's not available" would have sufficed. God complex much?

And maybe you don't use your keyboard as much, but people who use Twitter use hash tags and the @ symbol quite a bit. Or perhaps worrying emails where you may need a & sign or quotations. So having those easily accessible in that menu IS helpful.

So, try and be a little nicer maybe?

Let's keep things cool Ok?

This isn't a mod my Swiftkey thread, it's a theme thread. Asking is cool but let's stay on topic. There's nothing in the OP that suggests we have modded it so he's got a point.

Ask where it's gonna be helpful. Q&A section of XDA or find a modded thread....
Which isn't easy since compiling Swiftkey is difficult.

FYI

As I said, those symbols are available as long press on other keys and it's easier like that than long-pressing "." and select from a long list of symbols. At least for those using this keyboard for long (I use it for 4 years by now). You're not used with it because you might have been using the Google or standard keyboard but that's a different story. And I do text alot: skype, whatsapp, xda, viber and it has been way easier doing that with current layout than with the standard keyboard.
In the end it's only a matter of preference but swiftkey was designed with speeding typing in mind. My point was that this was not the proper place to ask it and second, that this layout is used for several years by many people that appreciate it more than standard keyboard layout.

I'll stop my off-topic here, I dont want to go in a pro/cons discussion over swiftkey's layout
