i bought some iota late 2017 but the seed i created at the time on the desktop wallet was less then 81 characters and it worked fine, i thought id wait until the official wallet came out and would then move, so i downloaded new wallet on my phone, now id like to transfer those iota out of the old seed and into a new one, but there appears to be a validation in place where seed can't be shorted then 81 characters? some help please

As seen in the following line, the old app would append 9s to the seed you entered until it reached 81 characters. If you do this manually, it should contain the same balance and will work on the new trinity wallet.
