If you find yourself repeatedly typing phrases or snippets of code, you’ll find Texter very useful. Texter is designed to take the repetition out of computer use. I use it when I write guides for this site; I always write the guides in plain HTML first and then move them to my CMS. I’ll often write lines of HTML code over and over again, so this tool is a real time saver.
Texter is simple to use: after installation, you can start adding your hostrings; when you type the short phrase, texter will replace it with the full phrase you’ve assigned. Below you can see two examples of hostrings I use and the full replacement string.
Texter in Action
I made a short clip of Texter in action so you can get a better idea of how it works.
Problems with Texter
Texter is extremely useful, but there is one reason I don’t use it as much as I’d like to: when I use it, I find the Windows Key shortcuts no longer work. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know in the comments.
