Learn how to use text replacement on the Mac for abbreviations and common mispellings.

Text Replacement on the Mac

Did you know that you could have the Mac replace text for you? As an example, you type an abbreviation, the Mac sees that and replaces it with other text. You can also use it to replace words that you commonly misspell. When you make the type, the Mac will see that and replace it with the correct spelling. These text replacements also sync across all your devices. See how to use text replacement on the Mac in this video from Tutor for Mac.
