    Good morning to all.
    Looking for some assistance on typing 1/2 or 3/4.
    I have been given a diabetic daily record medical info as I have had diabetes for some time so the medical team want me to keep a record of my weight on a weekly basis. I did have a choice either use pen and paper or do it on iPhone or iPad so I thought I'd have a go digitally.The only thing is how would I type for example 11stone 1/2 lbs is there another option to enter the 3/4 or the 1/2.
    Any help on this Please if all fails I can always fall back to the pen and paper method.
    Many Thanks to all.

    Merry xmas.

    You can copy and paste a selection of fractions into the keyboard shortcuts section, so that you can type ¼ ½ or ¾ for instance.
    Merry Christmas

    I have ½ in my SwiftKey clipboard. If I want others, I use text replacement or the KuaiBoard keyboard. Sometimes text replacement (Shortcuts) doesn't work well for fractions.

    I used to have Prokeyboard on my iPad, which included maths symbols, but I am not sure if it will work on an iPhone.
