Any reason why text expander doesn't work in EN search bar on iphone?

Recommended Posts

I use text expanders quite frequently.  On my windows desktop I use a program called "activewords" which does text expansion, scripting etc.  It works quite well even in conjunction with Evernote.  For example, if I don't want to type "intitle:XXX tag:XXX -tag:AH notebook:home" then I can simply use a secret key and that entire string will appear in the search bar.  I can then swap out the XXX's for whatever I'm searching for.  I use this in a hundred ways.  In iphone I use the text expander that comes with the keyboard and this works in nearly every app in iphone except for the search bar on EN.  It even works within notes in Evernote but not in the searchbar.  Does anyone know of a way around this?
