Dynalist desktop stops macOS text suggestions/autocomplete?

Steps to reproduce

Open Dynalist, type any text shortcuts stored on your mac (Mac Prefs > Keyboard > Text).

Expected result

The shortcut expands. For example, on my computer typing jt should expand into my name, Jonathan Tuzman.

Actual result

These shortcuts are not recognized and the text remains as is


Which operating system are you using? macOS 10.15.6
Which browser are you using? N/A
If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist? 1.4.1
Are you using any third-party scripts for Dynalist, e.g. PowerPack? No, what’s that?? :smiley:

Additional comments

It seems like Dynalist desktop is, like, not part of the macOS typing environment. These autocomplete features do work in Dynalist in Chrome.

Unfortunately, since our app is based on Electron, which doesn’t implement NSText on MacOS, there’s no native way of using text expansion in Dynalist’s app right now.

According to this issue seems like something might be coming soon: https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/15535#issuecomment-492493775
