    I also have an iPad Air on iOS 8, so;

    I tested shortcuts in the Notes app, and it was not working.

    So I went to Settings > General > Keyboards > Shortcuts and played around a bit: deleted a couple of older shortcuts that had reappear and created a new one.

    When I went back to the Notes app shortcuts were working again.

    Since you said a reboot did not work, I decided to do a reboot and check again. Sure enough the shortcuts stopped working. After some more experimenting I narrowed it down to having to actually create or edit a shortcut in settings before the feature starts working again.

    Annoying.

    I've sent feedback to Apple. Pretty close to exactly what I wrote here. Won't hurt for you to do the same if you want to bump the issue a bit higher on thier to-do list.

    Yes. That is what I meant, if it wasn't clear. I only edited one. I added a space, deleted the space, and saved.

    I had the same problem. Old news by now, but IOS 8.1.1 cured it.
