My gf and I have compiled a list of what we have found so far, and are still discovering more.

This happens when you use Link2SD or Apps2SD and move either the Swype App or the Swype installer App to your SD card. To fix it, move the installer and Swype back to the phone and reboot.
I found some of this information on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1042241 the rest I figured out by trying things.
Did you activate the Hebrew language pack in the Settings/Language & Input/Android Keyboard Settings/Input Languages? Hebrew is listed there. Check the box.
I don't know if that will give support for swiping but it will at least add the language dictionary.
Apps purchased through Google play store are linked to a Google account and not a device. This means you can purchase an app then use it on devices signed into the Google account that purchased it. https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113410?hl=en
I just figured it out while trying all possible Gboard settings. Turns out that "block offensive words" was activated for some reason, and apparently the word "hon" is considered offensive in some places.
I had no idea it was an offensive word, and either way I'd have thought Gboard was clever enough not to block english offensive words when I'm in "swedish ...
Swype uses a separate dictionary. You can access the settings for both from within the system settings:
From the homescreen, open settings → language & keyboard
for Swype continue: Swype → Personal dictionary
for the default keyboard: My dictionary
There you can edit/add/remove words from your user dictionary.
Enter the message application, click the menu button and enter Settings, select "Text input mode" and change the option from Automatic to GSM Alphabet. When you type in the message it appears as special characters but when the message is sent it is automatically converted to normal text.
Looks like this feature was disabled in the latest version of Swype: http://forum.swype.com/archive/index.php/t-6439.html

We've changed the delete behavior a bit -- and while it took me a day to get used to it, I have to say it has sped up my Swyping a bit. So here's a couple changes we've made to the deletion ...
Enable Emergency Mode. This shuts down to only essential services.
This reverts the device to the default Samsung keyboard and will allow you to enter the password.
You can then disabled Emergency Mode go into the settings and re-enabled Swype.

Thank you, but the suggestion above didn't work for me since I already had the 'block offensive words' disabled. However, I found out that for Gboard to learn the words I typed, I also had to enable the 'personalized suggestions', under settings > text correction. Hope this helps :)
Have you tried using the Google Keyboard application?
It pretty much allows you to disable personalized corrections and a few more options.
You have the option to change the following settings:
Block offensive words: Block Google Keyboard from suggesting
potentially offensive words.
Auto-correction: Set the spacebar and any inserted punctuation to
Try clearing the cache and app data for keyboard. Go to system settings then apps and search the keyboard there. Try clearing cache and app data. If the problem is still there you can disable the keyboard.
Mostly the default keyboard is Google Keyboard
The arrow keys I had now don't exist.
It's probably because the update also updated the keyboard app which no longer now has arrow keys implemented. There is a way though, you can always use third-party keyboard apps from Play Store. Many do have arrow keys: Hacker's Keyboard is an example, and SwiftKey is another example.
Also, when it gets a word wrong,...
This worked for me: uninstall your current google keyboard (it will ask you if you're sure you want to uninstall updates as you can't really uninstall the keyboard), then reinstall it.
If you're having trouble finding it in the play store here's a link to open from your phone:
It is possible in Swype to change the size (width) of the keyboard, and shrink it. Press-hold on the Symbols key ("?123"). There will be options to change the keyboard size. Drag your finger to the icon showing the size you may want (on the left side, right side, floating...).
I checked a few alternatives and found that the free Go keyboard is the closest match to the old HTC Desire X one as the spacebar is longer and easier to press.
However, my phone gets slower whenever I want to open the keyboard to type like sms, Whatsapp,etc. Could be that the app is slowing down the phone. I wish they had include the swype keyboard in ...
My experience is that the Swype option disappeared with the upgrade. At first, I was really annoyed. Then I downloaded the Swype trial from Play. It is so much better than what I had before that I have no hesitation in paying the $0.99 to get the full-blown Swype.
This is the direct download link to the Swype Installer APK: http://swypemedia.swype.com/beta-d1/media/installer/Swype-Installer-2.0.apk
You can access this from any device (including a desktop computer).
Swype uses the installer app for it's licensing system.
With Version 1.3, this is now an option in Swype. You have to log in with your credentials (I think you probably registered when you downloaded the beta installer). It gives you the option to backup and sync your dictionary across other devices using Swype.
In Motorola Atrix 2, when swype keyboards freezes, I simply keep pressing on the keyboard area, so a popup notice tells the aplication will force closure. That is a quick way to make the keyboard restart and work.
I have Jelly Bean 4.2.2 on a HTC One S and Swype 1.4 installed. I was ready to go on a shooting spree when I thought I couldn't hit a return button to start a new line!
I opened a SMS thread, tapped Menu > Settings and scrolled all the way down. There is an option at the bottom called Soft keyboard type. Open that and you get --

You could also try to just add the words you use most of the time, even it is from a different language.
That is what I do. When I'm using one language, and I need a word that is available in the other language, I just type it and add it to my personal dictionary. Over time I will have two dictionaries who will probably both have the words I use the most.
