Thanks to John for the Letterswitch macro. I had tried a slightly
different version of this a few years ago (some of the macro commands
were different), but could never get it to work. I transpose letters
constantly, and this is very handy. However, I wouldn't mind something
that would work in other apps as well.
Phillip, I know that TypeIt4Me can complete abbreviations, etc. Am I
correct that this can work in any OSX application? I wasn't aware of
the auto-correct feature. Can it be turned off, or applied selectively?
I like being able to quickly untranspose letters, for example, with a
keystroke (which John's macro does very well). But I really dislike
auto-correct features as a rule because I'm often typing quotations in
Middle English, or other texts with archaic or very irregular spelling,
and auto-correct software is usually trying to change this as I go. I
need to control this, but want to be able to run it quickly and easily
as I need it.
