    Have you considered installing Google Keyboard? Although it still has long press numbers.

    The main reason I like the Samsung Keyboard is the top row of "Numbers", unfortunately the Android Keyboard does not have that option. What is weird is that I've seen videos on Youtube with clean Samsung keyboard, with no long press symbols or character on the letter or numbers, so I do not understand why my phone has those, see attached file. "+ on the Q", "= on the E", "@ on the A", etc.

    The main reason I use the Samsung keyboard is for the numbers on top. The only drawback on this version on the note 3 is that you can't customize the key to the left of the space bar

    It's for faster typing of common symbols? One of the reasons I like most android kybds...and another reason...there's tons of options on the play store, just find one you like and install...

    I went to settings and enabled it. You'll see it once you get there.

    Sadly mine doesn't have that option. I googled it and it seems like it's only on the latest beta version. The weird thing is the beta came out like December and I'm guessing it's still not released coz my Swiftkey is up to date on the play store :S

    Why don't you just load the beta SwiftKey? I have both the release and the beta versions installed and they don't conflict with each other. Just search for "SwiftKey Beta" and you'll find a link on their site to download and install it. Of course the beta is free too.

    Is there a way too shorten how long you must hold the key for the secondary options to poo up? Love swype but they have the well known issues lately and that was the reason I prefers it. Or is there an option on swype to change accuracy? Used to have a keyboard with a speed vs. accuracy slider...
    and why for the love of God can I not type the triple . Symbol with Samsung keyboard??

    Yeah... especially since that's what is shown at the top of the period key, implying the ellipsis (the technical name of the 3 dot symbol) would be the long press default for that key, though when you long press the period key, that's not even one of the twelve choices displayed. :|

    I does. You just have to select it in the settings- under typing, then keys.

    But I am still having the problem of symbols with long presses on SwiftKey. Can't find a setting to turn it off. Anyone have a solution? I have patients who have motor impairments and are too slow to release a key, so they end up with all symbols.
