For some reason I can't make an autotext for vv that goes: %B? and actually works right (%B = delete). What I'm trying to do is get rid of the space in front of the vv so that 'happening vv' becomes 'happening?' as above. But the space doesn't go away, so I end up with 'happening ?'
I believe you always have to have a SPACE before and a SPACE after the autotext string you want to replace with YOUR TEXT.
So, unless you specifically enter "happeningvv" as the string and have it replaced with "happening?" it will not work. The "vv" has to stand on its own away from "happening" That's why you want the MACRO to backspace.
I edited the one I had created for "qu" which had been a plain Question Mark (?) to added the macro %b in front of the ?
so when I now read that autotext entry is looks like:
But I think I will follow the DoubleTap concept and use the one you suggested vv for ?
Yup - works.
Does autotext work in the BB browser? I guess I will try. I want easier ways to enter the / character. (edited to add) More playing is necessary since a SPACE enters a DOT into web adddresses. so I can't enter a "delimiting space" without it getting replaced by a DOT!
(hhmmmm - can't get to autotext from the memopad app!!!) It works in memo but does not allow editing autotext
