Hi Lotta and Östen,
Sorry for the very late reply to this. I am going backwards in
all my mail list and private now to try to catch up.
>> Is there a way to de-activate one or some of the auto-replace

Yes and no. You cannot prevent one from being triggered, but you
can add some commands to the Clips that will make the Clip exit
before making the replacement. In short, the auto-replace Clip
would abort before it was fully used. See my comments below
first, but you need to get on the Clips list for that. (See my
sigline for the Clips list -thanks!)

A Clip could be built to do that.

See Eric's comment below, but I think you really do want more
than one. See Lotta's reply and mine below also.

If you are not in a Library that automatically turns the feature
on when the Library is activated, then right click over the
Clipbook and choose "Auto-Replace". Type in some text that is
one of the Clips and then type in an activation key.

That makes sense and if you look at what is used a number of them
are frequently used keys after text or known delimiters. There
was a time that we did not have the power to prevent the
activation key from being inserted into the text, but we do now
with the following code: ^&
Use the "^&" symbol. From Help under "Auto-replace Mode"
Note that if the Clip contains the cursor-positioning code ^&,
the activating key is automatically discarded.

No, we cannot disable or choose what activation keys we want to
use via an Option or feature. Eric wrote at one time off the
lists, "I'm planning to make it possible to customize the
activation key in NoteTab 5.0..."
