Exception suffix shortkeys

Hi,

 

I use the global suffix ## for shortkeys.

 

For some macro's with shortkeys, I would prefer not to type the suffix.

Is it possible to make an exception on the global ##rule?

 

Example

shortkeys: wkr

Typing wkr in e.g. Word should replace it with: With kind regards,

 

Thanks and have a nice day.

I was thinking about this last night....

 

I use prefix-mode, so I don't know ... But, I wonder if it's possible to use suffix-mode, but stop using the ## as global keys. That way whenever you hit the spacebar or a punctuation character the macro would activate..

IN ADDITION to this, change your existing shortkeys to include the ## as part of the shortkey.

 

So if you used to have:

addy (the shortkey) + ## (the global trigger) = Your name and address

Now you would have:

addy## (the shortkey) + <space> (the global trigger) = Your name and address

 

This way you could just leave off the ## when you wanted, thus:

wkr (the shortkey) + <space> (the global trigger) = With Kind Regard

 

=====

Incidentally, I was just toying around with the MacExp Editor, and I don't see where you define the global suffix characters ... Is it in the preferences dialog?

=====

 

Other side note: I still recommend checking out ShortKeys because of it's "global spell check" capabilities... (see the post "MacroExpress vs. ShortKeys vs. Both")

Steve, this is a nice and may be newview on what I want MacroExpress to do.

Because of the many programmable options in ME it's a great hint to try.

 

Just let u know what I experienced.

 

I would like to have all my macro's in one application, just for maintenance.
