Re: Question: replace illegal characters in a file name

OK, another update on my last post: I rolled back to FastKeys 4.18 and using INSERT COMMAND CODE worked fine. So now, FastKeys does exactly what I needed all in one go. :D Update: The problem with INSERT COMMAND CODE hanging on my laptop must have been some other kind of software glitch. I thought r...

Re: Question: replace illegal characters in a file name

Actually I use the TEXT box which is one of the SELECT macros. This is is where I type in or paste text to form part of the filename(s), so that is not standardised. Your question prompted me to look at INPUT macros in the help doc but there isn't enough info (e.g. some examples) for me there to ena...

Re: Question: replace illegal characters in a file name

Just a quick update on this question: I had an idea and created an AHK script to handle the character replacement from a shortcut key combination. While it's not as good as "on-the-fly" or in process handling, but it is quicker and saves me manually fixing the filenames. I'm happy with this approach...

Re: Question: replace illegal characters in a file name

Why can't you define the selections to not contain illegal characters? If you mean by building validation into the input fields, how does one do that? I can't recall seeing it in the help doc but maybe I missed it? I find when doing copy and paste from the descriptions or job titles or file referen...

Question: replace illegal characters in a file name

I use Text Expander and Input Selection features to complete a little form that prompts me for information used to build a file name so that I can save documents and forms using a schema. The input selection form opens up when I type a phrase in a software application's "Save As" dialog, and then se...

Question: No offline documentation?

I'm not sure if I'm mistaken, but didn't FastKeys have offline help documentation? I don't always have internet access.

Is it possible to add my text abbreviations into an auto complete file?

I find I often forget my less commonly used text abbreviations. Is there an easy way to add my text abbreviations into an auto complete word list, or something like that, so that I will get suggestions as I type which will also jog my memory and remind me of my text abbreviations?

Re: Is it possible to add a label to choices?

I seem to be struggling with the same situation for check boxes. I am running Fastkeys 4.10 but no matter where I put "::" it outputs the whole line. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
