    Can anyone tell me what keeps Android from defining

    Text Shortcuts Are Defined, But They're Not Working

    I'm on an LG L90, with the default LG keyboard, Google key-
    board, and SwiftKey keyboard installed. 4.2.2.

    I've searched, but cannot find a definitive answer. I have a few
    shortcuts defined, and they have unique strings to trigger them,
    but when I'm using an app, I cannot seem to trigger their sub-
    stitutions.

    I have checked my personal dictionaries, confirmed the shortcuts
    are present, their unique shortcuts codes have been created and
    are in place, I will type a shortcut, and I get no confirmation to
    replace the shortcut with its expanded text stream. I see no other
    OS settings that have to be selected to enable the replacement of
    shortcut triggers with their expanded text substitutions.

    Help.

    Dr Doug
