We all have those sentences or entire paragraphs that we use over and over and over again. Instead of rekeying or copying and pasting from one place to another, wouldn’t be good to click just a couple of keys and have it do the work for you. That’s what a text expander does.
Text Blaze works in Chrome. Use it in Gmail, Google Drive, or anywhere you are composing in Chrome. Even the free version is pretty powerful. The video shows you how it works.
Each snippets starts with a forward slash followed by a couple of keystrokes of your choice. Creation of a snippet is easy:
- Click the plus sign.
- Create a title for the snippet.
- Create the snippet. Start with a forward slash and decide the keystroke(s) to add.
- Key or paste into the large block the text you want Text Blaze to insert.
Text Blaze allows hyperlinks. It also allows a variety of styles of date/time stamps. This video provides an overview of what Text Blaze will do:
