Yes, I tested and it worked.
It also seems to load faster.
Thanks.

So it fixed the issue with the accents? Great. I hope to get back to that soon and finish it. There are some final issues I need to review for it...

Maniac,

It's a little late but I was wanted to give an update from the post from 17 Dec 2016, 01:52

To summarize:
-I tried to use TypingAid on a USB drive on a computer at work and it didn't work
-When dragging the program to the computer (instead of running it from the USB), it works

I tried your suggestions of sending myself the folder from the computer, saving it to my USB drive and running it.
It didn't work.

Just wanted to let you know how it went (I told you I would let you know).

I'm just running an older version of TypingAid and everything is working fine.

Thanks again for all your help.

OK, thanks ambroise. What about an alternative solution, why not use Google Drive or DropBox to sync TypingAid, letting it sync to your other PC's via that? Then you don't have to worry about the USB stick.

I work in a hospital and due to HIPPA, those website are blocked (they're trying to limit the way patient's info can get out)
The program works fine if I choose the encrypt the USB drive and I'm able to use an older version on an non-encrypted drive.

Thanks again for all your help and the program.
My work would take twice as long without it.

I've been using the script on my work and the issue with the accents was really fixed. Thanks.

Hello,

:)

thank you very much for making this AMAZING software program, my fingers thank you :)

2 Questions if I may

1. How can I display new lines in the replacement autotext?

For example I have some paragraphs to insert.

In the Wordlist.txt i have made the text condensend so the program picks it up

FL1 Apples, bananas, pears,cherries,mangos, treats

When I insert it - how can i have it like this

Apples
Bananas
Pears
Cherries

is there a work around?

Do i need to insert a

n for newline character somewhere.

or in the Wordlist.txt
do i do this

FL1::
( Apples
bananas
pears
cherries
mangos
treats
)



2. How can I display more characters in the Tooltip box does it display only 50 characters in the prieview?


thank you to the Autohotkey experts.

1. There's no support for multiple lines and I don't intend to add it. If you want to patch it in your own copy, or maintain your own github fork, that's fine with me.

2. In preferences, under Wordlist Box, you can change the "List max width in pixels". If that's not set, it will use your monitor's width.

Hello Maniac,

I am a newbie so i dont know much about programming or autohotkey but i did some research and found that i can search and replace in the clipboard with this


F9::
StringReplace, Clipboard, Clipboard, XX, `r`n, All
return

do you think i can search and replace just before my autotext is pasted from typingAid - this would help me to do mulltilines.
I could use XX as a placeholder for the newlines

I can see how useful TypingAid is and want to use it longterm

thank you :)

In Sending.ahk, SendFull, around like 140:

change:

Code: Select all

   ; if autospace is on, add a space to the string to send
   IfEqual, prefs_AutoSpace, On
      SendValue .= A_Space
to:

Code: Select all

   ; if autospace is on, add a space to the string to send
   IfEqual, prefs_AutoSpace, On
      SendValue .= A_Space


   StringReplace, SendValue, SendValue, XX, `r`n, All
You might want to use something a bit more unique than XX.

Hello Maniac,

thank you very much that worked yay!


I am very happy becuase i dont need another text expander for the Long paragraphs or mutiple paragraphs, i can condense them and then split them on the clipboard.

I can paste my word list in and this will now solve that problem.

Search and replace in the clipboard.

Thank you very for making this software, and a have a great week now :D

Just chiming in to say that I am working on a semi-related autocorrect project, and this script is super cool.

Hello Maniac,


just a quick follow up, getting on nicely with it :)

Also - am I able to delete the first 4 characters of my text

eg if i use x100 as the trigger text - it will give me choices

I would like to delete the x100 while inserting my choice from the pop up


thank you for any tips

You could make changes in the same area of code as last time to deal with that :) Either before or after the line you added.

Hello Maniac,

I need to trim something?

; if autospace is on, add a space to the string to send
IfEqual, prefs_AutoSpace, On
SendValue .= A_Space

StringTrimLeft, OutputVar, String, 4 ; 4 characters

I'm not sure if im doing it right?

I'm not entirely sure what it is you're trying to do? You need to detect x100 and the remove it, but are there other trigger text options you need to detect? How do you know if something is a special trigger text or not?
