When I type ie in Mail it defaults to i.e.
Anyone know how to stop that happening? Less is more!
Good luck with this one lol. I tried creating a text shortcut (System Preferences>Keyboard>Text) and set "ie" to output "ie" but that didn't work. You can use "iee" to output "ie" but that's not exactly what you want.
Edit: Hmm try typing ie but don't hit space after, you should get a pop-up showing i.e., if you were to hit space it would put i.e. But if you hit escape it'll do ie. NOW, do that 3 or 4 times, ie>wait>escape. It has re-learned it for me so I can do this "ie ie ie ie ie" without i.e. coming up.

You appear to be genius. I've tried that latter trick and for now it seems to have learned not to do it! Thanks a lot.
