I am working with APEX 5.1.
I have some applications that have been upgraded from 4.x to 5.1.
These application may contain shortcuts.
Although shortcuts can still be used in an upgraded apllication to 5.1, I am unable to create a new one.
Does someone know if the creation of a shortcut is depreciated in 5.1?
From the Shared Components, it is no possible to see it, although the functionality for creating a shortcut still exists.
The question is confusing as the two highlighted statements are contradictory. Please describe the steps required to recreate the problem, or (preferably) demonstrate it with an example on apex.oracle.com.

Thanks for the reaction.
I have found it.
It is only possible when using the Page Designer is enabled.
In order for shortcuts to be expanded in a static content region, select the region's Attributes node and set Output As to HTML and Expand Shortcuts to Yes.
It was not straightforward to find, and this option is not (at least I have not seen it) to be found on the former (that I like much more) Legacy Component View.
