How do I type "1-2" in Reminders without it disappearing and changing it to a time?
I want to add a reminder to Reminders that says:

"2-3 more boxes (1-2 for office)"

but the "1-2" disappears, and Reminders forces it to change to

"2-3 more boxes ( for office)"
Today 1:00 PM


How do I type "1-2" in Reminders without it disappearing and changing it to a time?
I do not want to have to use words. This is really annoying.

What happens if you put a space between the first parentheses and the 1-2?

(space1-2

Same thing.

Adding and deleting it also does the same thing.

How about adding an apostrophe? Like this '1-2

That is how excel denotes a comment not a number.

maybe try a bracket instead of parens?

Can you do an "undo" (e.g. Cmd+Z) to revert it? That works for autocorrect with other stuff...

This is strange because you can not do this within Reminders on Mac
but can do exactly what you want on iPhone Reminders?

Enter it as this: More boxes, 2-3.
