Hi so the main sign l tend to use is ½. As l wrote my drop down screen was not like yours. Here's what l have l achieved so far. With Unicode App Express.

If you check the keyboard l type 3 letters the ½ appears on the keyboard.
That is the Shortcuts and Predictive Text bar. Shortcuts are the icons. The predictive text tries to guess what you are going to type, so you can just tap it to finish the word. It almost always includes any Text Replacements you’ve set up.
If you don’t use the predictive text, the replacement will happen after you enter the space at the end of the word/shortcut text.
My text preplacement is set up to replace 1/2 with ½. It’s convinient because it doesn’t require me to remember the shortcut. However, on the rare occation I want the actual characters 1/2, I have to trick it by tuyping then with a space between each character, then going back and deleting the spaces.
