 Smilies
 Font size: Tiny Small Normal Large Huge Font colour [quote="Ivan"]Dear colleague, Your Program is a very nice one. Contrary to some good text editors, where it is possible to make macroses, snippets, autocomplete etc., this program is useful, because it may be used from within ANY text input window. Thank You very much and please go on! However, may I suggest another option, i.e. to make a snippet, i.e. to add preceeding and following text before and after the selected text. e.g. $$@@@$$ means that I may select a line(s) with an equation, run FlashPaste, and have e.g. $$e^x=\sum_{k=0}^{infty}\frac{x^k}{k!}$$ If nothing is selected, it will be equal to select "null string" and one will have just text. Despite the AS IS principle, may I hope that such an improvement could be made. With best wishes and thanks, Ivan[/quote]

 Post subject: date - special input codes
 Is it possible to enter a code/string that would tell flashpaste to insert the current date in that spot? example: test completed $DATE. would actually paste test completed 9/28/2005. or something like that...

 Like Thomas, I too have been asked to check to see if the common.txt file can be stored on a central server, for central control of the strings that our Engineers will be using with their customers. In other words, is there a way to have flashpaste look to a network share for the common.txt file, as opposed to the applicationdata/flashpaste folder? Thank you!

 Post subject: More ideas and many thanks
 For over a decade my livelihood as a transcriptionist has depended upon the ability to type with speed and accuracy. Since last year when carpal tunnel syndrome caused the loss of use of two digits on my left hand my life has been impacted profoundly. Special one-handed keyboards simply aren't an option considering their price (from $500 to$1000) and the fact that they wear out just like all keyboards, even the best, do. I'm hard on keyboards, even without the use of two fingers I've worn out one Compaq and two IBMs this past year at a cost of over $150. I'm always looking for programs now to enable me to maintain my productivity plus extend the life of my keyboards. I can see that FlashPaste is going to be a huge help in both areas. It may have already been requested but I think it would be great if links pasted into FlashPaste could be made clickable. Also I think Thomas1000's suggestion to implement the use of special characters is very useful. Perhaps a built-in character map (similar to the one that comes with Windows except... better I also hope FlashPaste's development will include the ability to access lists/archives through the interface itself instead of through the Windows Explorer. If FlashPaste only included a keyboard re-mapper Jus' kiddin'... Despite all this, thank you for a very useful app. I look very forward to using it. Best of luck to you in all your endeavors.

 Hi once more... For me a tool which allows working in a network is a must. We have 5+ People in customer service. They all should use the same phrases provided and managed from a privileged admin. As phrases change frequently copying the data-file all the time is not very funny... . Maybe I am not the only one with such needs... . Greetings Thomas Hi once more...

 Post subject: Better explanation
 Hi again! What I suggested was a way to input text which contains a special char(s) (e.g. @@@). Instead of typing that char the typing stops and an input-box asks the User what to fill in. When you write a Letter it could be a phrase like ------------- Hello @@@, thanks for contacting us. Blah blah blah... ------------ When you use that phrase the user is asked "Replace @@@ with:" and enters "Paul". Then the letter would become: ------------- Hello Paul, thanks for contacting us. Blah blah blah... ------------ Even better would be a syntax which allows the admin to define the text of the question like <@ Please enter Name of Customer: @> Hope I could make my idea clear (sorry: english isn't my native language...).

 Hi there! I would love to have grouped texts (as suggested before) - preferable as sub-menues. The place where the data-File is stored should be in the config. So it can be setup to be used in a network-enviroment. Another Idea is an interactive part (a special Char in the text is replaced by user input). Like this "This ist my phrase. Please reply until for further info..." Keep up the great work! Thomas Hi there! I would love to have grouped texts (as suggested before) - preferable as sub-menues.
