How to make formatting easier on Apple Mobile Devices!
« on: February 22, 2017, 11:48:52 am »
*I am not sure if there is a way to use this method on Macs, Windows, Androids...or any other devices besides iPhones and iPads, but if there is, please let me know below so I can put it up here!*

*I'll edit this with images later.*


I'm on my iPhone a lot during the day, and when I want to get on FeralHeart, it's a bit of a hassle for me to format my post every time I'd like to say something. I do realize that copying and pasting is an option, but you need to copy more than one thing sometimes, so I found a better way.




Go to Settings >> General >> Keyboard >> Text Replacement, and click the plus sign on the top right corner.

Now, you should see an area with "phrase". Enter here what you'd like to say for short. { Ex: [ color=teal ] }

Under that, where you see "shortcut", enter a two or three letter shortcut for that. { Ex: te }

Whenever you write "te" and press enter..."[ color=teal ]" will pop up!

Of course, you can use this trick for anything, including having a short message at the end of texts, etc.

I hope this helped someone out!
xoxo

I've always wanted to know a simpler way of using colours on Apple devices!
Since I get out of school I can't use my laptop, this seems really helpful!
Thank ye for sharing. c:
