Hi,

I am happily making use of the shorthand glossary and have even figured out how to use styled and formatted text there.
Now I was wondering, whether I can tell Spell Catcher (or Mac OSX for that matter) to automatically turn certain words into italics (I am using quite a lot of foreign language vocab)? I am sure there must be a way, but I have no idea how to make it work.
I am happy about suggestions :-)

You can style the text of an expansion. Here is some info on how to do it:

http://www.rainmaker...pgs/shorthands/

Create your shorthand and then in the My Shorthands dialogue box, select the expansion you want to italisize in the right hand column, select that text for your expansion and then choose format > fonts and choose your text and style, make sure you check "Style text" at the bottom of the shorthands dialogue box. Choose an italics font for your expansion.

Hi, thanks for your reply :-)
I actually knew how to work with expansions and shorthand; there are (interestingly) just some words I somehow like to type, and I wanted them to be recognised a posteriori, so to speak, and to be styled. But I suppose, working with shorthand is the easiest option, so I'll go with that.

With thanks

I am going to look at direct correct feature for this, and report back.
