Re: Text Expander String Name

Hi JGM, typically you would not use spaces within the abbreviation but it should work. I tried: String: a b Type: Send Substitute aaaaa bbbbb and it works as expected. However a suggestion will not pop-up when the "Display suggestions when you type" is enabled because Space resets a word recognition.

Re: Text Expander Seperator

There is an issue of recognizing separated strings when "Display suggestions as you type" option is enabled - it only shows the first one. Thanks for reporting.

Re: Select Date Field Does Not Appear

I checked and it works just fine for me. Double click on SELECT_Date fields to see if Type is set to Date.

Re: Open web address from one browser into another. Possible?

The command below selects the address bar (Alt-D), copies URL to clipboard (Ctrl-C) and then runs Firefox with it:

Code: Select all

Send !d
Send ^c
Sleep 50
Run, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" %Clipboard%

Re: Text Expander with Gmail

I tried on three computers and it works for me. Could you be more specific what is not working?

Re: Unable To Get Text Expander To Work

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Your example should work as intended. Did you save your settings (Save button)? Maybe you have changed some user preferences? You can go to Preferences and reset to defaults. Is everything else working?

Re: Max Substitute length

Longer texts (default >1500 characters) are sent using Clipboard method which is faster but sends special characters literally (raw).

For your case to work, increase the "Preferences/Text Expander/Use Clipboard if text length exceeds (char)" setting to higher number.

Re: Escaping Characters

Characters such as {}^!+# have special meaning, enclose them in braces. For example {^}{!}{{}. In your case:

Code: Select all

ls -l /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images | grep -i %INPUT_CLIENT% | awk '`{{}print $NF`{}}'{Enter}

Re: Clipboard Capacity

There is a known issue with Excel - it uses a separate clipboard handling which might conflict with FastKeys. This is also the reason why FastKeys Clipboard Manager is by default disabled in Excel.
