I was happy to discover text replacement. Only thing use text replacement to send directions etc in messages, and it comes out as one big blog without spaces in between the paragraphs.

Whereas when I was doing select, copy, paste from notes, to messages it would include line breaks, any ideas?

Text replacement is designed to handle character, word, or short phrase replacement not extended blocks of text with carriage returns (a.k.a. paragraph markers). Control characters such as Carriage Return eind up being ignored. I suspect you are going to need a third party app such as Text Expander + Keyboard for what you are trying to accomplish. crazy

Darn, not free, seems like free says "get", but then it's $36 years, and I only one blurb that is large.

Though I see one with same name $4.99 says Legacy, non subscription...
