There's a phrase I often use, "...at 81 years with incipient Alz's..." to excuse one kind of blunder or another; and I often need a code not available in the forum I'm using, eg, " "
...so Is there a way I can make such a phrase or code appear with a single keystroke, that is command-s or the like
I know it can be done because I used to know how, but ...at 81 years with incipient Alz's...
Thanks for your attention to my ridiculous needs
You could just turn that into your site signature.
Goto your account profile page:
There is a text box which allows you to have a signature (not pictures) of no more then 250 characters.
Thank you Tsar but forgive me if I wasn't clear. I want a keystroke that will work at any forum or site etc. For instance composing any message anywhere I can capitalize a Word by highlight, Edit, Transformations, Capitalize
…though that particular example is pretty cumbersome and tedious. I'd be happier with Mac if he made such editing easier
i don't think tsar misunderstood, he simply suggested the only option he could think of
You hit my answer on the tip of the nose DJ. ((ouch!))
here's something you could copy and paste as your signature
Your Attention Please,This Is A Public Service Announcement Regarding dalehileman: "...at 81 years with incipient Alz's...", Please Consider This When Approaching, Thank You
That's easy for me to answer:
I don't know.
I supposed if I weren't so lazy I could find the answer Googling; but I'm surprised art a sophisticated site like a2k someone wouldn't have an immediate answer
..but thanks guys anyway
Aren't there things like "macros" that can do that?
Yes, yea, Frank, exactly, you're on the right trak
I used to have a system for setting up macros in Word...so that I could put my name, address, and phone number with the stroke of a key. I honestly do not remember how to do it anymore (poss. early onset Altz), but it is worth investigating to deal with the problem in the OP.
but it is worth investigating
Thanks kindly Frank, it's not everyday I get a little encouragement in this conation of procrustean and insensate hermeneutic convolution
