Also There Should Be feature can be available that work without open search/helper window of Multiple Substitute to choose From.

Feature Improvement in Multiple Substitute Should Be,
We can directly write any known shortcut-(abbreviation)key (particular abbreviation key) for full phrase
which already we know, then helper window should not open with multiple possible options.
& If we forgot the abbreviation key, & when required help, only then ,helper window should & only be open with abbreviation & fully expanded phrase ,& only open when we take another action or key we specified.

& if we proceed for display help screen, then There should bed need to display abbreviation + full text as expanding of abbreviation (as just help) that we can decide & verify which test/phrase will be pasted after type abbreviation. currently only abbreviation is displayed in help window not full phrase/text as help , so we can not decide based on only abbreviation that which phrase will be paste.

So for all above , if we directly just typing abbreviation from Multiple Substitution, for particular required phrase , then it should be automatically expand to its related phrase without open helper window to choose from.

In short

(1) Helper window should only open with all substitutions & phrases when we require further help in multiple substitution
(2) If we choose to display helper window then Full Text should display as help again every abbreviation
(2) Comment can be enter as personnel help in multiple substitution window as further help
(3) We can direct enter abbreviation & it should expand for known abbreviation form multiple substitution without open helper window


Hope you understand about this universal ,wold wide required feature & there are possibility for some improvement happen in this feature

Thanks & Regards,

Comments in Send mode were introduced in v5.12. Select the phrase, right click and select Comment. Please note that comments must be in a separate line.

I'm not sure I follow the multiple substitute suggestions. Maybe try the following alternatives:
- Enable "Display suggestions as you type" option in Preferences/Text Expander
- Add description prefix to the multiple selections - https://fastkeysautomation.com/documentation5/Send.html
