How to create android and ios keyboard shortcuts | PCWorld

Posted by jpluimers on 2023/01/06

[Wayback/Archive] How to create android and ios keyboard shortcuts | PCWorld android bits, numbering mine:

(Note: These steps work only with the stock Android keyboard. Tap Settings, Language & input, and make sure Google Keyboard is selected under the Keyboard & Input Methods heading.)
  1. Tap SettingsLanguage & input, then Personal dictionary. Next, tap the language option of your choice.
  2. Tap the + button in the top-right corner of the screen, then type the word or text string that’ll trigger the shortcut. You’re best off picking something other than a common word; for example, “addr” rather than “address.”
  3. In the next line, type in the actual phrase you want to appear when you type the shortcut, such as “1234 Main Street, Anytown USA.” Unfortunately, the phrase is limited to about 50 characters.
  4. Tap the Back button, and you should see your shortcut appear as an entry on the Personal dictionary screen. Tap + to add another shortcut.

I tried it with SwiftKey, but that does not allow dictionaries.

Thanks [Archive] Murdock (@Generic42) | Twitter for pointing me to this, and showing me this PokeMon Go shortcut: !4*&!3*&!shiny&!legendary&!mythical&!traded&!costume.
