Give the Gift of Giving -- It's a tradition. At the end of every calendar year, we collect gift suggestions from TidBITS readers and staff, assemble them into semi-consistent categories, and publish the results as a special TidBITS issue. And, every year, TidBITS readers reveal themselves to be a creative, resourceful, thoughtful, funny, and thoroughly generous bunch of people. No matter what holidays you may celebrate - if any at all - we hope you find these suggestions useful for bringing a measure of joy to the lives of others. And we'd like to extend a hearty thank-you to TidBITS readers for their support and readership during 2001 - without you, none of this is possible.
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:
- Type a few characters of your snippet or its abbreviation.
- Press your hotkey combination immediately after typing the characters. (Don't enter a space before pressing the hotkey combination.)
- A popup menu appears with all snippets that contain the characters you typed. Scroll through them and click the one you want.
