IOS 13.3 IPad Pro Keyboard missing snippets menu
I have three apple devices an iPhone and two IPads. I heard that version 13. Is not so good for Editorial, and i use it heavily for my writing projects. I have been putting off upgrading to 13 because of the issues that are being reported, but I wanted to try it on my least used device to see what I am getting into. I upgraded my iPad Pro to 13.3 and at least editorial seems to be functioning, but the snippets menu is missing. Any chance on enabling that , or is this a bug from the upgrade?
I Have the same problem
Same here. It would be nice if the snippet editor was accessible also through some menu.

I’m having the same issue.
iPad Pro 13.3 cannot see snippets button.
Disappointing as this was a big selling point for me.
Am I missing a setting somewhere?
Also having same problem (iPad Air2)
I have iPad Air2 and have had no problems
... 🤓🧐😕 ...
I have an iPad Air 2 and an iPad Pro 12.9 (2017). Both fail to show the Snippets button, which is very irritating.
Must be an issue with iPadOS. Pity it's taking so long to fix since we're now on version 13.4. :-(
Any update from Admins would be useful.
@DownAndCross as i mentioned in my other post i dont have pro so im not exactly sure what is missing but for the time being you can use the
Snippets.pyexample script for the Pythonista keyboard and set your snippets in the system text replacements
here is the script in case for any reason its not available as it shoiuld be.
#!python3 ''' This shows a simple list of text replacements you've defined in the system-wide keyboard settings (Settings app). Note: This script is designed for the Pythonista Keyboard. You can enable it in the Settings app (under General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard...). Please check the documentation for more information. ''' import keyboard import dialogs def main(): if not keyboard.is_keyboard(): print('This script is meant to be run in the Pythonista keyboard.') return snippets = [s for s in keyboard.get_text_replacements()] if len(snippets) == 0: dialogs.hud_alert('No Text Replacements') return selected = dialogs.list_dialog('Text Replacements', snippets) if selected: keyboard.insert_text(selected) if __name__ == '__main__': main()
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post. I've only just seen it.
I managed to get a year of TextExpander for $7 from Bundlehunt last week. I think it's great but I'll have to see if that's worth the normal yearly subscription next year.
I'll use your tip for Editorial though. 👍
I'm trying to restore the Snippets feature on my iPad. (9.7 inch iPad Pro / iOS 13.5)
I was able to get to the point of showing the Snippets Popover, but unfortunately, this doesn't work when I tap on it.
It's not good enough for memory management either.
