I had thought that FastKeys pasted in text when you use a text expansion shortcut. But I guess it actually does something more like typing it out letter by letter because long passages of text take a long time to expand.

Is it possible to have the program somehow paste in longer texts from saved text files or something? Or is the current "send" method the only feasible method?

(Example: I have some long snippets with several bullet points that I sometimes include in emails using FastKeys. Sometimes they can take up to about a minute to finish "send"ing with FastKeys, and if I press a key while I'm waiting, the text will have the random letter mixed in with it somewhere.)
