text replacement issue

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Hello all.

I have a strange issue with text replacement, which seems to be flick type related .

All text replacements with definitions longer than 100 characters only expand in flick type, and not with the standard keyboard any more. But removing flick type from the iPhone does not help. Could anyone try the FOLLOWING?

1., Go to settings/General/keyboards/text replacements, and enter a definition with a long text, more than 100 characters, and its associated shortcut, then click Save.

2, try it in Flick type, try it with the standard keyboard.

3, Tell me what happens.

Thanks for your help,

best,

JPR

Hi JPR,

Thanks for including such great instructions on your issue, but I am not able to reproduce, my text replacement shortcuts are working in both places. My assumption is this may be on Apple's side.

Anyone else have a similar issue?

Thanks!

Hi Ashlie.

Thank you for your reply. May I ask, how long are your text replacement definitions?

This seems to be the key of the problem, as short ones work on Both flick type and standard keyboards for me too.

How can I submit the problem to Apple, they will say that the problem is on flick type side, as the shortcut expands in flick type. Tell me what is the smartest way to tell them about the issue I'm having.

Best regards,

JPR

Hi JPR,

Following your instructions, I created a definition with over 100 characters. They shouldn't feel like this is a FlickType issue since it does work in FlickType and does not work for the iOS keyboard if it were the other way around then it would make sense if they thought it was a FlickType issue. Here is a link for submitting issues to Apple: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

Please let us know how it goes!

Ashley, I've got news for you, and for me to. A friend of mine just told me it was an iOS Bug, and that it has been Solved in the future iOS version that is already available to beta testers.

Few.
