Text Expanders in Action – Names


I use a very simple method for creating text expanders for names that I type frequently. I use the first two letters of the first name and the first two of the last.

For example, I used to type a radio show on which politics was frequently the main topic. I had text expanders for many of the candidates set up using this method.

By always using the same method I can easily recall what my shortcuts are even if I haven't used them in a while!
