    So what Auto-Text shortcuts do some of you have?

    Maybe we can get some good ideas out of this.

    I set up shortcuts for words that end with a 't. like isn't, ain't, etc. I also have lots of symbols in my autotext...

    I have a bunch of 'em because I'm a transcriptionist by trade....I have made up a bunch in Word and I've used a lot of them on my BB. Examples: bc, because; eb, everybody; ilu, I love you; n, and; wd, would; cd, could.

    I have set up too many to list. Lol. I have ones for my kid's names, days, months, certain events, etc. I like your "itz" idea though. I also use the ur, ure, ul, uve.

    Do you realize that you've duplicated several preset autos?

    Wer = we're
    Il = I'll

    I do have one specifically for this forum:
    *col = {color="DarkGreen"] {/color] Just replace the { with [

    And one for BBM while driving:
    Ppp = Driving now. I'll get back to you when I'm stopped.

    "nSPACE" becomes , (that's a comma)

    "vSPACE" becomes ?

    So, when I ask a question:

    Do you like autotext nSPACE

    It becomes:

    Do you like autotext?

    Or:

    Do you nSPACE like me nSPACE like autotext vSPACE

    becomes:

    Do you, like me, like autotext?


    It may look awkward but it becomes more natural as you use them.

    I recently set some up for filling in forms online.

    Mymail
    Myname
    Myadd
    Mystadd

    I'm probably going to steal a few from this thread as well.

    I really like the idea of the "I'm driving.." autotext. I'm going to steal that idea for sure. As of now I don't have any other autotext shorts set up.

    It's a recently stolen autotext idea from another thread, but I made

    xx = :-)

    xz = ;-)


    I do like the comma and question mark idea. one less screen change... should make typing even faster.

    Since you have to press SPACE before typing "nSPACE", you're still using the same number of keystrokes to create the character. I don't really see the benefit of this one.
