    I have an app on my PC that lets me paste in frequently used text blocks into an email or document with a quick keyword. Think like Shift-Cntl-H to paste in the phrase "Hi There. How are you doing? Long Time No See. Have a great time here":

    I'd like to use these same phrases when doing email from my phone, but on the phone I have to type it all out each time.

    Does anyone know of an app or method to do this on Android (I'm on version 6.0)? I'm having trouble searching because I don't really know what you call this functionality (back in the MS Word on PC days they called these blurbs "glossaries", or "phrases").

    The only way I know that you can do so is with a keyboard like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ion.pckeyboard

    You'd have to find a Keyboard that allows for 'hot words' that automatically get replaced. I believe the newer stock Samsung Keyboards do, and I wanna say Swype does as well, but I'm not 100% sure. I know SwiftKey doesn't, so that one is out of the question. Maybe the Google one does as well.

    Is there a software solution? I guess the software would have to be memory resident all the time. And not sure how to "trigger" it since Android keyboards don't have the cntl or alt keys like PC keyboards. Or even a way to have a list in memory and a shortcut way to pop it on top to select the phrase from a list.

    Clipper - Clipboard Manager allows you to have a few (it's settable) phrases in the clipboard (its own internal clipboard - the internal one is no longer used), and when you past, you can choose the phrase you want.

    As I indicated above, there is at least one keyboard available which has the full complement of "PC" keys:
