    I only want text replacement on my phone. Not on my laptop running Yosemite.

    How do I stop iOS from syncing text replacement to my other devices?

    I have read that I can turn of iCloud data and documents on my laptop, but that option isn't in my iCloud prefs page.

    if you just want to disable text replacements, just right-click in any textfield and choose the according option

    Is that system wide? It looks like your screen shot is in an app.

    no, seems like it's...well, textfield-specific. if i disable it in the Safari address bar, it will remember the choice for a new tab, but if I disable it in the macrumors search textfield, the choice will be reset in a new tab. inconsistent behaviour, one might say.

    edit: disabling it in one Messages conversation disables it for all conversations....

    I just want a system wide way to turn off text replacement on my Mac. I can't believe that's not an option.
