I got all excited when I saw there was a chrooma update. I decided to uninstall it and get the new version fresh from the Play store. I went through the setup and tried to open the settings and got a constant, non stop barrage of "Chrooma has stopped" messages. They came so thick and fast that I could barely get my app drawer open to uninstall the poor thing and put it out of its misery.
Back to the drawing board.
Samsung Note 5.
Android 6.1.

I'm wondering if there is something you guys can do to make the swipe-to-delete more... efficient. When deleting multiple words, I often find myself typing mm's and nn's instead. Lately I've been using the space bar to highlight text and tapping the delete key to erase it — but this takes two steps, while certain other keyboards that we won't name can do it in one step. Is there anything you can do to improve it? Your keyboard has become one of the best (if not THE best) keyboard on the Android market. Thanks for your incredible work.

Having the same issues. Watched the tutorials. Toggled all the gestures on, not working. Tried in several apps.

So, I went back to version 3.0.5. It's my favorite version so far. I didn't realize how much I like that there are no number superscripts on the top row. I mean, does anyone really need those anymore? (Hey devs, can you make that an option in the future?)
I do have one other suggestion: bring back the pop-ups on the action bar number row. They really are very helpful when it comes to accuracy.
And devs, I know you must get tired of listening to all of us bitch and moan about how we want this and we don't like that.... But, just so you know, we LOVE your work, and your labor of love is the best damn keyboard on the market. Don't stop.

Just downloaded the latest (3.0.5). Hats off to the devs, cause this thing just gets better and better! And it just feels faster, too. The gestures are smoother, everything feels... Well... Smoother. You guys must be the hardest working devs in the Google universe!

When resizing Chrooma, as the keyboard gets shorter, the letters get smaller. When resizing Google keyboard, the letters seem to stay the same size. I realize that Chrooma's resizing capacity is bigger than Google's, but is there a way to keep the lettering larger for smaller versions, or reduce the algorithm so they don't shrink so fast?

I've noticed that the space bar gesture to highlight text doesn't always work. Here's what happens: I tap and hold the space bar, slide my finger up the keyboard, then slide left to highlight - only all I do is move the cursor. Now, if I slide my finger back to the right, THEN the text will get highlighted. I've mostly been testing this in Google Keep. I'm using version 3.0.1 on a Note 5, android version 6.0.1. Anyone else having similar issues? I haven't yet been able to figure out why it happens some times and not others.

I just got the latest (3.0-release), and I noticed that the space bar gestures don't work in Google Keep. No cursor movement, no highlights, no Google, nada. Has anyone else noticed any app-specific glitches?
Note 5
6.0.1
I cleared cache and data as son as I updated, and I've tried turning the gesture settings on and off.

ahahah let's say we made some really weird tweak to make it works, so consider it a beta feature :) +Ken Mathis

I notice that the floating pop-up when gesture typing has gone away (ala Google keyboard)? Was that intentional?

I've just posted this question again - sorry, just found this post. The floating preview really is a key feature. I hope it stays.

I think I just discovered something: I have been having a hard time getting the gestures to work. I just realized that I was swiping too slow. Rapid swipes work the best.
Soooo......
Would it be possible to put a "sensitivity" option in the settings for the gestures? Just a thought...

I found that it's not necessarily about quickness, it's short swipes that helps me. +Ken Mathis​​

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not always the sharpest tool in the shed, but the only gesture that I can get to work is the space bar/cursor mover. What am I missing? Is there a tutorial somewhere?

Works fine, swept up > deleted all.. swept left > last word deleted..
Awesome was not aware of delete up.. I'm too lazy to read change notes

The space bar gestures also work fine.. One plus x 5.1.1

Hi everybody! I'm still getting occasional crash notifications that "Unfortunately, Chrooma has stopped", even when the keyboard isn't in use. I'll try resetting the app (again), but I suspect there may still be stability issues. Is anyone else having that trouble, or is it just me?

For the record, I'm running v. 2,1,3,2 on Android 6.0.1. The latest reset seemed to help.
