Add a key delimiter to expand the text snippets


Recommended Posts

Basically what I want is instead of "auto expanding" what would be nice is to type your keyword, and then hit tab to expand it.

 

Example: (you type)

lorem + TAB

which would equate to

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

You could maybe add a setting called "text expansion key" so people could use other keys too.  I just think tab is super intuitive and it allows it so your snippets don't interfere with other text you might be typing.  Some people may prefer the enter key. Anyway, I will promote the shit out of the text expansion for Alfred if you add this one feature.  Until then I'll have to stick with aText :(
