Chapter 3. Typing Without a Keyboard > ShortCuts: Little Strokes for Big Words

3.6. ShortCuts: Little Strokes for Big Words

No matter how you're entering text into the PalmPilot—using Graffiti, the onscreen keyboard, or a GoType keyboard—you can save time and effort by using the ShortCuts feature. ShortCuts automatically expand abbreviations into longer phrases of up to 45 letters and spaces. The PalmPilot comes with several such entries already established: for example, you can type me, which the PalmPilot automatically replaces with the complete word Meeting. This instantaneous expansion can take place anywhere you can use Graffiti: in the Memo Pad or Address Book, for example.

Fortunately for those who might like to use the word me in its more common context, the PalmPilot only treats an abbreviation as a ShortCuts trigger if you precede it with the ShortCut symbol, the cursive lowercase L shape shown in Figure 3.7.
