    We have indeed got this scheduled to deal with. The issue might very well be that we have to update our Electron version. The team will be looking at this fairly soon!

    Hi Amir,

    The answer is simple: we had/ have a pasting bug... and text expansion dynamics rely on pasting.

    We did fix the pasting bug... so maybe you'll need to update/ uninstall/ reinstall your Mac desktop app.

    Oh, I suffer from this unavailability, too. I always believed it was not possible to achieve these shortcuts/OSTextExpansion in the WF Mac app. Which is weird because it works in almost every other place, and also works in the WF web version! but not on the desktop.

    Isn't the app supposed to update automatically? I've just wanted to check what version I am running but couldn't find that info. Neither doesn't seem to be an option to manually update it.

    So, I guess I will download the current app from the WF page and install it again on my OSX hoping the new version replaces the old one.

    Hi Max,

    Uninstalling and installing the app doesn't help in this case. As we discussed a bit further with Frank, this is not related to the bug or update, and it's due something else. Frank forwarded the issue to devs and they are working on it. 

    Best,

    Amir.

    Hi Amir,

    Oh, I see. Let's hope this is fixed soon, then!

    Same as you, I have many Unicode specific glyphs assigned to intuitive global shortcuts.

    For instance, I constantly use these in my note-taking system:  → ⟶ ⟿ ⟹ ↳ ↔︎ ← ⟵ ⎘ ⚭ ✕ ⁂ ⚠︎⌇etc. depending on the kind of information, status or relationship between them. So I have assigned them very easy and memorable 2-keystrokes combination shortcuts. Its a pity they do not work in WF.

    Thanks for answering!

    Cheers,

    M.
