      Two tips:
      1. I had problems with the new version 4 beta. It seemed to slow the
      computer down a bit, and also sometimes made my caps lock not work.

      But the version 3.1.6 for Windows
      http://www.phraseexpress.com/download.htm

      works great and didn't slow the system down at all.

      2. Define your auto key shortcuts with a forward slash and then two
      letters. That way (unless you're a programmer who would type something
      like that in a normal day), you won't get the fills by accident.

      This program also has a goofy utility that tells you how much "money"
      it's saving you...you enter your typing speed and how much you make an
      hour, and at the end of the day it gives you a dollars saved amount.

        focus gets the text of whatever the button is set to.

          Not a recommendation, just a suggestion. When I was still studying
          Medical Transcription, there were several programs that were suggested
          for, basically, macros. You type two or three characters and get words or
          paragraphs you've previously associated there with. E.G., this free
          program, quoting from their help file:

          <quote>

          Speed Typing is a unique word processing utility that can do miracles. For
          example you can write a long letter by entering only one word. How is it
          possible? Simple. You can place over 100 000 letters, standard phrases,
          signatures, email addresses, frequently used sentences, URLs, phone
          numbers, and hieroglyphs in the Speed Typing┬┤s database; when needed, you
          can recall any information from the database just by typing a keyword in
          any place where it is possible to type words. This amazing program will
          work with any text editor.

          Examples:
          We enter: hwd
          We get: Have a wonderful day!

          We entered one word only, but got 3 words typed!

          It appears the website for same is http://www.colorpilot.com I think
          there was a better/more popular option, but danged if I can remember it.
