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

@dalehileman,
You could just turn that into your site signature.

Goto your account profile page:
http://able2know.org/account/profile/

There is a text box which allows you to have a signature (not pictures) of no more then 250 characters.

@tsarstepan,
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

@dalehileman,
That's easy for me to answer:

I don't know.

@dalehileman,
Aren't there things like "macros" that can do that?

@dalehileman,
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.

Just substitute "custom text" where it says "E-mail address."
