    How do i set up shortcuts for certain things i type all the time?
    I.E. On myiPhone i can set "bj" to automatically give me the option to choose to insert my full email address.
    I have numerous shortcuts for my address, phone number, posta code, cerain phrases frequently used. etc.
    is there any way to do this on the note 8?

    thanks for any help

    The only way I've been able to do it on Android is by using a
    3rd party keyboard called Smart Keyboard Pro.
    I used to use this all the time on my Blackberry.
    I also like using it on my iPad.
    Would be nice if this feature was added to Android.

    Thumb keyboard so has the same option. Other than you have to switch back to the Samsung keyboard to use S-Pen input to get text recognition it makes for a very nice keyboard.

    Does the slidelt keyboard do a good job with predictive text? Or is predictive text hardwired into the Note3 so that it predicts the same regardless of what keyboard you use?

    I like that you can easily switch from one language to another on the Google Keyboard. It works for me, as I am bilingual and often use two languages, even in the same email sometimes. But it sucks that I can't teach it my own language as I was able to do with my Blackberry (like teaching it to change "waiver" into the long legalese boiler plate language I use on many documents).

    On Samsung Note 5: Good to keyboard, press on "Options" icon and scroll down to "Text Shortcuts." You can input an abbreviation & Add whatever text, number, address, phrase etc cetera to come up. And there you have it.
