Yes, it does seem like it would be that straightforward. The problem is, some of the other background operations (spell check, auto correct, search suggestions, etc.) are also interacting with the text box through the same interface as the module. There are quite a few checks internally that compare things like word position, text length, cursor index, and others. When the length or cursor position is extended beyond what the text box is expected to contain at that moment, it can result in crash of the app. I'll looking into a workaround, positioning the cursor at the end of the expanded word is the most ideal option.

Would it be possible to add this app to Play Store and without the requirement of Root? I'm all fine with xposed module, no issues with me.
But I've seen one other app on Play Store which does macro expansion. So I thought it is doable without the root. Pretty sure, many people would love to use it. @mikmitch thanks for taking a look at issue I reported.

No performance issues, I have not enabled case insensitive macro expansion and I'm using Note2

Is there any way to access the text in the clipboard for the replacement text?

It has nothing to do with the keyboard, actually the module is crashing the Gmail app no matter the keyboard app, I tried with Swype and Samsung keyboards along with Swiftkey and the gmail app crashed every time.
