Re: Running clip from shortcut
There are only two ways to run a clip via key strokes, _without_ using a third-party keystroke itercpetor:
1. NotTab is active and has an AutoReplace library loaded/enabled.
You could for example have a clip named "Z", and when you
type "Z," this clip executes. Words consisting of "Z" only
are extremely rare ;-).
2. NoteTab is running, with Clipboard capture enabled, but another
app is active. You can use the OnClipboardChange event in
NoteTab to run a clip. This makes it possible to run a clip
in NoteTab without making NoteTab the active application.
A NoteTab feature to intercept the keyboard and run a clip has been lobbied for unsuccessfully for years. Personally, I refuse to install yet another utility just to save a keystroke or two.

And I'm still a member of the custom clipkeys yahoo group. I decided
then it was not for me. I often use things like that to work around
other programs, often using NoteTab, but I rely on my main productive
tool, i.e. NoteTab, to be sleek, reliable and self-contained. When that
too becomes externally enhanced ther will be too many levels and blow my
stack, being a simple-minded grandson of farmers, workmen and a sailor.
My question mainly was to make sure I had not just overlooked something
obvious and simple. I'll soon get used to doing things the NoteTab way.

autoreplace. I have retained the start character "<" for TeX too, as
it's far easier to type than TeX's customary "\" and made that clip
It will come naturally in a very short time I expect.
