This seems to be a new problems in todays release:

I have text expansions that replace 2-3-letter shortcuts with longer text (names, greetings, email address, etc.)
ch -> Cheers,
br -> Best regards,

Today I found that they all don't work anymore! (with one exeption, see below)

Also: The expansion text for the shortcut "rr" is now triggered by a single "r".
Even worse: S+ treats the german umlauts (ÄÖÜaöü) like a space, so that words like "für" will be expanded ("f<expand>", the umlaut gets also replaced).

I haven't touched anything relating to Text Expansions since the last fix.

Can you confirm by installing an older version and testing it out?

- Go here:
- Scroll down to bottom and enter and download (obviously click No to update when S+ starts with the older version.

See if it is working properly. Then restart S+ and download the update and test again.

It's possible something else is in play, the text expansion code is pretty ugly behind the scenes, in terms of hooking the keyboard, tracking characters, etc.
So I want to be sure this is a new problem and not just an isolated situation on your system where things have gotten mucked up or something is different than before.

Also test using English and German keyboard layouts to see if there's a difference.
