Looking for a text utility


T

Tanner

I once had an autocomplete text utility that could be used with any word
processor. IT IS NOT Let Me Type. . . the name of the program started with
an S, I believe. (Shortkeys Lite or something similar. . .)

The original proggie was freeware and allowed you to have up to 25 words or
phrases, however, you could have an unlimited number of reference files,
each with 25 words. This allowed you to have reference files for specialty
subjects. You could define any combo of letters and a "trigger" key to
represent a word or phrase. For example, I used to use the spacebar as my
'trigger.' To type, the word 'the' I needed only to type"

t(spacebar)

I know this program later went shareware or crippleware, but I'm trying to
find the original freeware version. Sound familiar to anyone? Desperately
looking for it. . .

Flashpeak.com, they have a freeware: UAS, UltimaShell Autocompletion Server.
For programmers. It is packaged with their bare rtf editor, Intelledit. And
too, some other programs (eg Keynote) code in support for it.

Flashpeak also has a payware: Intellicomplete. For end users. Formerly known
as UltimaShell Pro. In 2002 or 2003, did the company concurrently have a
lite version of UltimatShell floating around? If so, would it happen to be
the one that you were recalling?

The program I'm thinking of is Shortkeys Lite. I Googled and confirmed my
original suspicion of the name. I know that later versions of this program
were spyware or crippleware. I'm going to search to see if I can't find
earlier versions. If I find, I'll report back. . .

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, however it seems to have
the capabilities you need:

Speed Typing is a unique word processing utility that can do miracles. For
example you can write a long letter by entering only one word. How is it
possible? Simple. You can place over 100 000 letters, standard phrases,
signatures, email addresses, frequently used sentences, URLs, phone
numbers, and hieroglyphs in the Speed Typing¢s database; when needed, you
can recall any information from the database just by typing a keyword in
any place where it is possible to type words. This amazing program will
work with any text editor.
