    Question Button assignment for e-mail insertion

    Advertisement



    OK, I know that I am going to sound incredibly lazy but I was wondering if there is any way to have to have a button or paste function that will insert my e-mail address. It is terribly long and I find myself typing it in frequently.

    You can create an autotext entry that will do this.

    In options there is a section called autotext. You can create a new entry and set a series of keys so when they are typed it will populate your email.

    OK, call me a dummy. I looked in that but it is asking me to replace something with something else. I also didn't see any button assignments. Anyone know of any step by step directions for this?

    Sorry, you want to replace "myemail" with cp6169@hahaha.com, just for example...

    You can put whatever you want in the replace section, just put your email in the with section.

    I put under replace with "go"
    In the with section I put in my e-mail...goirish2006XXXX
    then went to a website that asked me to put in my e-mail address. When I started to type in my address it did not do anything. What did I do wrong?

    Put a space after go in the blank? After pushing the space bar the replace should go in there. I haven't tried this in a text field but it should work.
