New build 81 just uploaded on special request from a DC-er.

Additional import feature thrown in place, to read the following format:

abc     this is replacement text for abc
cde     same for cde
xyz     hey folks, I love all text replacement programs

etc. etc.

Tested and working on over 13,000 medical terms. Now I feel like a hypochondriac. Certainly something has been making me sick today.

If anyone would like me to make this more general, just let me know.

Ok, re the date and time tokens in Auspex:

'%date%' - inserts the complete date in your current locale
'%time%' - time in hh:mm:ss, 24 hour clock
'%hour%' - just the hour, 0-23
'%hour12%' - just the hour, 0-11
'%minute%' - minutes
'%second%' - seconds
'%ampm%' - the string AM/PM, in your current locale

'%yyyy%' - 4-digit year
'%yy%'  - 2-digit year
'%mm%' - 2-digit month
%month% - short month name (Jan, Feb etc)
%monthname% - long month name (January, February etc)
'%dd%' - 2-digit day
'%day%' -  short day name (Mon, Tue etc.)
'%dayname%' - long day name (Monday, Tuesday etc)

e.g.
%dayname%, %month% %dd% %yyyy% %hour%:%minute% %ampm% = Sunday, Jan 16 2011 10:30 AM

Er, not yet. I'll add a sticky thread or something as soon as I'm able to: Mr Mouser, can you set that up for me please?

I just have to mention this, with kudos to nudone for the suggestion.

He's talking about whether Auspex could be used to help folks who have to do a lot of HTML/XML tagging, by having replacements set up that automatically type the repetivitve bits.

Yes!

Not only that but you can have Auspex move the cursor to the right place in the string so you can carry on adding content between the tags without using the arrow keys.

One such example would be this:

htm*  could expand to  <html></html>  with the cursor automatically placed between the 2 tags. This is all available in the current release.

If the group would like me to, I can create a template set of replacements for this and similar stuff.

excellent. this is a big deal, i think...

having your own code completion functions that will follow you across any editor you care to use. i think that is amazing. (i know an autohotkey script could have done it - but i wouldn't know how, i'd have to spend all day figuring out how to move the cursor to start with.)

And this is how it should look.



So of course creating others for <div> <xml> <mycustomtag> etc. would be a piece of cake. Just adjust the cursor pos value to make sure the cursor ends up where you want it.

There's an import feature in place that would almost handle that page if the words were split line by line. It's a bit too simple at the moment, but would not take long to massage into shape if there's interest.

I should also add that nudone just made one of the tippest-toppest suggestions to improve the software.

I shall be working on a new release quite soon, and I hope to roll several new features into place, along with fixes for bugs which several of you were kind enough to document and report.

The wiki will also get a bit of a tune-up, and at some point soon there'll be a little guide.

Now would be a good time, in fact, to re-iterate what I hope I have made very clear in the old Auspex thread: a lot of you folks have made some excellent suggestions which I greatly appreciate, and will incorporate when and where possible.

timns, I really think you are on the way to having the top-notch utility of this ilk.  Most impressive.

My prime candidate for fix is getting the icon out of the task bar when it is closed.

hiding the auto complete window when typing more letters and no accordances are found.
