Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
The AutoText feature in word-processing programs can be extraordinarily helpful for people who live at their keyboards. ShortKeys helps layer this autoreplace functionality on top of any program in which text is typed. It can automatically replace abbreviations with preset text; thus, a user might set tqb to be converted into The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog, if that's an oft-used expression. It can also automatically insert the current date, and contains a basic spell-checking tool. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer the helpful ready-made shortcuts Microsoft Word or other word processors often include. The utility has a fairly substantial memory footprint of 10MB, but for people who do considerable amounts of repetitive typing, it could quickly become an invaluable time- and finger-saver.
