    iPad Air, latest software.

    Ok.... I don't get it. I setup some keyboard shortcuts and when I type the three character phrase the full shortcut text shows properly, just like when an auto correct suggestion shows( in blue text) but when I tap the text it just stays the three leter phrase.

    Arrggggh? Am I missing something? :confused:

    Do not tap the phrase. You are cancelling it every time you do. Simply press the space button and it will appear.
