Texter Publisher's description
from Adam Pash
Texter is a text replacement utility designed to save you countless keystrokes
Text substitution app Texter saves you countless keystrokes by replacing abbreviations with commonly used phrases you define.
Unlike software-specific text replacement features, Texter runs in the Windows system tray and works in any application you're typing in. Texter can also set return-to markers for your cursor and insert clipboard contents into your replacement text, in addition to more advanced keyboard macros. Did we mention it's free?
What it does: Lets you define text substitution hotstrings that, when triggered, will replace hotstring with a larger piece of text. By entering your most commonly-typed snippets of text into Texter, you can save countless keystrokes in the course of the day.
One common use example given for applications like Texter is email signatures. For example, you could define a series of hotstrings that would be replaced by different signatures. So something like sig1 will automatically be replaced by your full signature when triggered.
As you can see from the video, there are a lot of ways that you can use Texter. Signatures, addresses, and commonly used abbreviations can be quickly and easily expanded from very small user-defined snippets.
Add new hotstrings: You can add a new replacement on-the-fly by hitting Ctrl-Shift-H, typing in your hotstring and the replacement text, selecting the trigger you want to execute the replacement (Enter, Tab, and/or Space), and hitting OK. For example, in the video above I typed sig1 and then pressed Tab to execute the replacement.
Manage replacement text: You can edit your replacements at any time through the Manage hotstrings option in the system tray menu (or you can assign a Keyboard Shortcut through the Preferences - the shortcut is empty by default, but I use Ctrl-Shift-M to manage hotstrings)
