General Software Discussion / Re: Texter (LifeHacker)
« on: August 10, 2009, 07:46 AM »
In the meantime, I've created a site called the Texter Db.

It's a place for people to post their favorite hotstrings, be it for abbreviations, spell check, scripts, etc. I also created a page where people can suggest what to include in the next versions of Texter (hopefully, it'll motivate someone to update the application).

The website's not yet done, so if something doesn't work, plz forgive me, I haven't had the time to finish setting everything up.

(also, plz tell you friends about the site ;)


EDIT: The website's almost done. Just need to relook it but it's completely functional otherwise.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Azerty-qwerty convertor
« on: August 05, 2009, 10:15 AM »
I work on a computer in france but I am used to typing in qwerty so I set my computer to type in qwerty. Problem is, whenever someone wants to use my computer for a little thing (like revising a word document), the person starts typing thinking that the keyboard is in azerty! therefore the text is all jumbled. He has to delete the phrase, change the keyboard layout, retype the sentence...

This is very tedious when it happens seriously 20 times a day. I suggest an app where you would select text, press a keyboard shortcut, and the app would re-type the text in the other keyboard layout. For example, the app detects the chosen keyboard layout (qwerty or azerty), reads the characters "1qw" and types it back as "&az". The keyboard shortcut could be Control+Shift+A (or Q.... whatever's to the right of Tab :)

It should be pretty easy to do, and extremely light-weight.

It would be really nice if someone was updating this app.

Sometimes, it takes a little while to replace the text and so the replaced word is in the middle of the next one, the one you were typing. I'm sure its happened to you at least once, and having to go back to fix this kind of defeats the purpose of the app.

It'd also be great if we could export the bundles or all the hotstrings with a button. I know it's feasible by going in the Program Files folder but that's definitely NOT user-friendly.

Finally, a check mark in the options to turn off the autocorrection would be great. Because, sometimes, I type in french and the texter autocomplete kind of gets in my way. Actually, it'd be great if the default autocorrections were in a default "autocorrection" bundle.



Here's hoping someone hears me out and works on this really fantastic, really productive app.

Post New Requests Here / Word 2007 AutoComplete add-in
« on: March 20, 2009, 02:41 PM »
Word used to have an autocomplete feature but not anymore... Could someone write an add-in for Word 2007 that would do that? It would just look at words you type often and make them appear in gray a after the user types in a few letters (text would be entered by typing "enter" or "tab" or something).
