Snippet doesn't remove trigger

I can't seem to figure out how to fix this. For some reason the trigger character does not get removed after the snippet is inserted. For example

Shortcut is /hello
it will insert the snippet correctly but leave the "/"
"/Hi, my name is David"

It's probably something obvious. I'm using blaze dashboard app on windows as I need snippets for more than just chrome based input.

Thank you ahead of time.

Is this happening consistently or in a particular app?

Hi David,

Can you check the settings in the Windows app and make sure the "Windows app in Chrome-based browsers" is set to the following:

Please check this setting and if setting it to Auto disable resolves the issue.
