Discussion on: Speed up your Typing on iOS with Text Replacements

For sure! Some additional ones I'm using are:

.ohm => Ω
.micro => µ
.cmd => ⌘
.opt => ⌥
.street => (my street address, useful for a form)
.zip => (my zip code, useful for a form)
.full => (my full address, useful when sending it to a human)

One of the things I learned is that if I have a word I don't want auto-corrected because it gets auto-corrected to the wrong thing (e.g. vscode was autocorrecting to something incorrect) I put that word in as both the "Replace" and "With" fields. Following the logic this essentially means when it looks up the word input/key, it replaces it with the value which is the same as the input, avoiding an incorrect autocorrect!

Thanks for sharing your advanced additional text replacements with me. They are wonderful. Gotta add them too. I need to test the hack you mentioned too.
