Default Google Keyboard Shortcuts

Has anyone had luck with the new google keyboard's shortcuts option? I put a few into the personal dictionary but it's not filling them in for me. I tried out and Ipad which I hated but the keyboard shortcuts was the one thing I actually liked!

Mine work. But here is what I have learned. You can't "swype" to use your short cuts, and it won't pop up in center of prediction, it will be the left prediction. So I used qq for my smiley face shortcut. So if I TAP q q , then qq well be the middle choice and it will be inserted if I tap space bar after qq, but to the top left in prediction line there is a :-)

Hope that makes sense?

Also, does any one have a short cut list to the cool symbols built into the new Google keyboard? I have found by accident heart ♥ and church ⛪ and phone ✆. You need to "tap" these in also, can't swype.

I got it. didn't think to look at the suggestions. was just assuming it would work like the shortcuts on the ipad where you put in the shortcut and hit space to fill in your choice. I still think it is awesome!
