Apple Keyboard Text Expansion Find

I used and will continue to use TextExpander, but there are a few snippets where I wanted to use Apple Text Replacement in iOS in non-supported apps with spacing. Signature example:


If you create a text replacement on Mac, use the ‘option’ key with ‘return’ to add spacing (just like Facebook messaging or Messages on Mac). So, to create the snippet above, I typed ‘Thanks,’, option+return, then ‘Justin’.

Anyone know how to do this on iPhone? The ‘enter’ key tabs to the next field.

Hope this helps someone.


I use the text replacement a lot and didn’t realize this. Thanks for sharing :slightly_smiling_face:
