Importable shortcuts / text replacements
Some way of importing and exporting replacements would be nice. It could just be a box to paste in xml or some other more compact format.

In iOS there are replacements defined in the general settings, that sync with all Apple devices. Please make them work in Typewise as well!

Currently I have to enter customisations for "Text Replacements" twice. Once for capitalised first letter, and once for lower case letter. Eg I have an entry for changing (adding apostrophe) "theres" to "there's".....but I also have to add a second entry for changing "Theres" to "There's" for the capitalised version of the change. The AI is surely capable of interpreting "Theres" and "theres" as the same word, and using appropriate "T" or "t" custom correction? The attached screenshot gives you an idea of the kind of replacement pairs I've been having to do as work-around for the AI not taking control of the situation.
Also. I have approx 150 custom text replacements that I created over the 6 months I've been using TW; but there doesn't seem to be a way to back those up? It would take me a huge effort of re-entering my text replacements if I needed to reinstall Typewise, or move to a new phone. If a backup function isn't possible, is there a file I can copy manually?

Please, allow transferring settings from device to device (export&import settings). The following would be exported: app settings including text replacements, learned user dictionaries and suggestion AI data. The best is to have the settings exported as a human readable (XML) file.
I'm using /e/OS with encryption on userdata and major upgrades require wiping the data partition. The keyboard is by far the most used app on my device and setting it up newly a is a pain in the... tapping thumb.
Thank you for any consideration.
I spent hours customising my text replacements only to loose them all with a phone reset . PLEASE give us this feature to back up and restore text replacements!

Why not use simple Time$ and Date$ user script insert possibility?
Time$ = SystemCurrentTime$
Date$ = SystemCurrentDate$
Like using basic programming scripting tecnique

Typewise is simply not that smart when it comes to auto-correcting all the common english language contractions. For example - if you type "thats" then hit space, typewise will not auto-correct to "that's" - which is pretty basic and very popular language usage. Another example is that I want it easy to type eg "they'll". I input a text replacement into typewise for "theyl" thereby making a very easy autocorrection and something that typewise isn't smart enough to do by itself. These kinds of auto replacements can mount up - I have 138 in total !! . So how do you back up all that customisation effort? Currently there is no way to do it from within typewise, which is a huge disappointment really, and pretty lackluster from the typewise team - this backup request has been sitting here for two years !! C'mon typewise team - where's your support?? .......continued..>>>
>>> continued...... However, I did a bit of digging around in my phone, and fortunately all your text replacements customisations are stored in a text file which can be backed up manually. There's one catch - you need your phone to be rooted. That can be done pretty easily with Magisk app, and then unrooted again easily after your file changes, if that's your preference. The file you're looking for is /data/data/ch.icoaching.typewise/shared_prefs/ch.icoaching.typewise_preferences.xml . Simply backup that file somewhere safe. If you ever need to restore all your replacements customisations, open that file with a text editor, copy everything inside then open ch.icoaching.typewise_preferences.xml on your phone and replace everything inside with what you just copied. Hey presto - all your text replacements are restored :)
eu costumava treinar minha velocidade de digitação usando vários sites de "typing speed test", agora com a nova versão, o app buga durante o teste não permitindo a gente usar short cuts propriamente, escrevendo o short cut da palavra em cima da palavra seguinte, que não faz sentido. Vocês poderiam arrumar isso ou criar um logo/teste que envolvesse palavras ao invés de apenas letras
