Search Snippets on the Fly in TextExpander

Have a large number of snippets and can't remember them all your abbreviations? Use TextExpander's Suggest Matching Abbreviations search feature. It makes finding your snippets fast and simple.

Set your hotkey combination by going to TextExpander > Preferences > Hotkeys. Once it's set, to use the Suggest Matching Abbreviations hotkey combination:

  1. Type a few characters of your snippet or its abbreviation.
  2. Press your hotkey combination immediately after typing the characters. (Don't enter a space before pressing the hotkey combination.)
  3. A popup menu appears with all snippets that contain the characters you typed. Scroll through them and click the one you want.

Tonya and I are deep into working on the fourth edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, which means that we're likely to be less responsive to email for a while.

If you're the author of a freely distributable freeware or shareware Internet program, I'd like to consider your program for inclusion on the CD that will come with the book. The same goes for commercial Internet programs with freely distributable demos. So, if you'd like to submit your program for inclusion on the CD, check out the Web form at:

<http://www.tidbits.com/iskm/cd_form/cd_submit_ form.html>

Similarly, if you are an Internet service provider (anywhere in the world) that supports PPP and would like to be included in the book and installer, send email to <iskm-providers@tidbits.com>. We'll collect names and send out more information when we have a Web signup form posted. [ACE]
