    Now, we can see all of the "Quick text" options listed.
    There are several pre-written sentences that we can use to quickly insert into our messages. We can also add new ones, delete some, and edit them. The ones on the current list are very impersonal and generic sentences. They don't really express any personality, and they only really apply to more general situations. We can create our own for more specific, personal things, such as using people's names or in certain situations.

Questions and Answers

How do I direct placement of Quick Text?

Hello;. . I am using an HTC ONE M9. When I enter text by hand (or use a signature in my message), the Quick text always places after the entered text or after the signature. It does NOT enter in the spot of the cursor (which is where I want the quick text to be placed. It automatically places it at the end of the entire message. Again, I would like to have the quick text enter at thew spot of the cursor automatically. Can you help? Is there something that needs to be changed in the settings for quick text placement? Please reply to Thank You - Ron R.. I have tried: Have not changed any sett5ings. I have modified and added several quick text messages. When I click the quick text that I want to use, it places at the complete wend of the message, even in front of the signature when I use one. In other words, if I send you a text that says test and then want to add a quick text, it automatically places at the end of the message (instead of where the cursor is in the message.. I think it was caused by: N/A

Help please.. I have tried: Looking in each category listed for assistance. I think it was caused by: Phone too old? Need to update a program or app. Using the wrong texting service?
