    The macros "%b" "%B"of word substitution is broken since 10.1.0. It is important for me. I have thousands of entries on my BOLD9900(about 30000 entries). Without them I can not input text efficently.

    The macros "%b" "%B"just don't work. And if I use two of them, the second is treated as normal letters except a macro. For example, I set a Word Substitution entry like this:
    myname %bqueshw
    Then when I type "myname" twice, I get "queshw queshw". There is a space between the two "queshw". It should not be there.If I set an entry like this:
    myname %b%bqueshw
    Then I get "%bqueshw". The second "%b" is treated as normal letters now.

    1. Please fix the broken macros.
    2. Please activate the "word substitution" feature as default for the TextField class. There are two class for inputting text , TextField and TextArea. But the TextField is setted to inactivate the "word substitution" feature as default now.
    3. Please open the APIs of "word substitution", and I can develop an app myself to import my entires from BOLD9900 to my Q10.

    Please!!!

    There are no macros in my list for %b, %p or %anything. Are these macros you have setup?

    I wonder if the % is a reserved character which can't be used for macros.

    %b means delete a letter backward!

    You can try input "ld" and you can get the date. The entry is:
    ld %d

    Sorry, I'm on the same wavelength now . %p works fine for me however I see that the %B and %b is ineffectual (I do not have access to the list of commands so do not understand what their function is meant to be at this time).

    It would seem the Word Substitution function only handles single commands per defined string, did it previously handle more than one?

    On my bold9900, I can define an entry like this:

    myname %b%bquehsw%B

    This entry means:
    1. delete two letters backward
    2. substitute "myname" by "queshw"
    3. delete a letter backward after the substiitution

    The %b and %B macros are very useful.

    Very sad, it's still not working the way it did on BBOS. I used it to get German Umlauts more efficiently.

    There are several bugs that have not be fixed yet since 10.0.0. The "word substitution" bug is the worst in my opinion.

    Agreed. I use word substitution extensively and would like to see this bug fixed soon.
