Autocorrect doesn't always work
« on: July 30, 2007, 11:56:58 AM »
I have a file that autocorrects as I type but sometimes the characters don't change if they are part of a word.
E.g., if I want to type an "e" with an accute on the end, I type .e' and I get é. But if I type resum.e' it doesn't change to resumé.
My scripts looks like this:
:*:.e'::é
:*:.e^::ê
I did originally try:
::e'::é
::e^::ê
but that didn't seem to work. I find that it works okay if you just need to do the one letter combo, but not if you type the word with the autocorrect bit.
(I can't add ::resume::resumé because sometimes I need the word to mean "to continue" and not the word similar in meaning to a CV).
Is there a way to get shortcuts to work when typing a word if my trigger is a period, like in my top example?

Another thing, why does autocorrect retype my month name when I type it correctly?
If I type january, I get January which is what I want it to do, but if I type January, I get January typed out again!
I am using this in the autocorrect file:
::january::January
