It'd be really useful if snippets could recognise and maintain the case I use when triggering them.


For example, if I type "lmk" Alfred would automatically expand it to "let me know". But if I type "Lmk" it would expand to "Let me know". Or "lMk" or "lmK" for that matter. At the moment I have to create two versions like so:




Which I guess isn't so hard... but y'know. 


I used to use https://textexpander.com/ which allows for this, but in a fit of consolidation I was hoping to streamline my apps. :)

Hi, thanks for asking,


it’s not all that clever to be honest - it’s just as I provided in the examples, the expansion follows the capitalisation the author provides. So:


Lmk becomes “Let me know”, but

lmk becomes “let me know”.


it’s useful of course because you use these phrases in different parts of sentences. You might start off “Lmk what you think...”. Or at the end of a sentence; “... lmk if you agree”.


lMk would become “let Me know” (not as useful but shows the format). 

As i mentioned, Textexpander has this as a specific option when creating expansions so it can’t just be me who finds it useful :)
