Hello

I would like to share a possible bug. If I create multi input texpand shortcut with "/" option it is not being selected in gmail. The same works in other apps such as notepad etc but in gmail the input cannot be selected either by clicking, pressing trigger or the number key. I have tried in firefox and chrome as well. please check if this issue can be reproduced and resolved.

EDIT. RESOLVED SOMEWHAT.

I was using "tab" as the ending character and found out that it did not work because when I pressed tab the input region changed. So I added ` as an ending character. Stangely after addint it as ending characted "tab" stopped working! Now I have replaced / as ending charcter instead of ` and both / and tab works fine. Strange why tab stopped working with ` character.

Please reset your Text Expander preferences to defaults and try again.

Hello Marko

Configuring all the settings again after reset would take a lot of time. Since it seems to be working fine now with the "/" option I would continue like this. If I face the issue again in future I would try resetting it. Regards.
