With this action, the abbreviation just entered is replaced with text, e.g. fe becomes February.
You can comfortably maintain the abbreviations and text in a text file, e.g. a *.csv file in Excel, a so-called user dictionary.
This file has the following structure:
One abbreviation and accompanying text per line. The abbreviation and text are separated with ;.
Example with months:
Define Tab as a flexikey and the above file as a user dictionary.
Enter fe and press Tab, the result is February.
Tab functions normally like Tab aside from the abbreviations defined in the file.
Example with postal codes:
Define # as a flexikey, use the file Postal code for city name (EN).csv in the folder dicts\English in the Clipboard Master program directory. In paste mode, select user-defined and "%t %n".
Enter a postal code, e.g. 80333 and press # and 80333 Munich appears.
You can find additional sample files in the dict directory in the Clipboard Master program folder.
