Tutorial Description

Using keyboard shortcuts is something many Mac users do on a daily basis, to speed up their workflow. But remembering them can be challenging, especially the ones that are not used often. This is where KeyCue can come to the rescue.

PopChar X and Typinator are also part of this productivity bundle from Ergonis Software. Organizing and inserting special characters easily, and expanding abbreviations to longer bits of text is made a lot more convenient by using these long-standing apps, which offer many advanced features.

Excellent debut Lee, look forward to more from you. I already have Typinator so useful to learn it can do so much more than I realised.

Regular Expressions would be an excellent topic for a ScreenCast and then how they are used in Typinator would be excellent.
