Snippets. They grow on you.

Here’s an interesting little snippet. Yeah, a snippet. Using TextExpander from Smile Software, you can create snippets, text you use all the time and don’t want to type over and over. For example, to get this:

“Moisture infiltration inside glass panels was observed in the ——.  Insulated glass panels tend to fog up or trap visible moisture when the desiccant seal between the panes becomes saturated. Replacement of affected panels is recommended."

I type an arcane code: “qig” and it just pops into place like magic. The q is the first letter of most of my snippets since piling letters on to it rarely results in an actual word.

TextExpander works beautifully on a Mac or PC, but is less useful on iOS. You can use the Text Replacement function to do a lot of the same things, though. Go to  Settings/Keyboard/Text Replacement and fool around.

Cool stuff.
