Are you a tech support specialist who has to type the same responses to questions over and over? Or perhaps you're a lawyer or business professional typing the same name throughout a document? You can always copy and paste, but that's clumsy and slow. RoboType solved this problem when it was first released in 1997 by providing a means to associate boilerplate text, form letters, signatures, and other reusable text with short abbreviations. When you typed the abbreviations, RoboType replaced them with the expanded text.

Robotype 4 continues to build on the original's strong foundation but adds many new features including:
• Support for rich text, html, and images as replacement snippets
• The ability to replace date phrases with dates in multiple formats. For example, if you type "now," Robotype will offer to replace the text with the current date
• A new popup menu for the user to select replacement data if the same abbreviation has been assigned to multiple snippets
• A Random password generator. Type "password" and a dialog box for generating a password will appear
• The ability to launch programs based on an abbreviation. For example, if you're typing in notepad and want to add two numbers just type "calc" and Windows calculator will launch
• A new user interface featuring a tree and groups of abbreviations
• Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7

Other than formatted text, the features aren't particularly exciting  <shrug>.  Not free, but very cheap.

^@timns- that would be for your "entertaining hobby" you have so much "enthusiasm" for and which deserves to be applauded?  :-\  ;)

Hooray, someone noticed  ;D  ;D  ;D

One I recommend quite often is Yadabyte Subtext-kip (March 14, 2011, 11:17 AM)

But very basic, and I once had it deleted from my USB stick as a false positive by an overenthusiastic college AV system.

Are you working for Phrase Express or it's parent company Mattphoes?

This.  And take a look at the posts of the OP. 

Yeah...  though not conclusive by any means, it does seem a bit suspicious...

No I am not. Would I've asked then? ;-)

I will Robotype a try but it looks pretty basic.
