How to speed up writing quotes and more
You may find yourself writing similar production notes, imprint technical print details, terms & conditions. Mac and PC's have the ability to save you time by creating quick, templated content.
For example: "imp-detail" can be replaced with:
SIZING: _ in
Creating templated content for Mac/iOS
For basic text expansion capabilities on the Mac, head to:
- Mac: System Preferences > Keyboard > Text
- iOS: Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement
For both, you can enter a phrase and a shortcut that expands into that phrase when typed and followed by a space or punctuation character. (Tip: If text expansion doesn’t work in a Mac app like Mail or Safari, make sure Edit > Substitutions > Text Replacement is selected.)
Creating templated content for PC
When using a Windows computer, you'll need to use a 3rd party software provider such as TextExpander (https://textexpander.com/). Once installed, you can create similar templated text.
