Show abbreviation strings - Phrase Files

PostPosted by gustms » Wed Jul 05, 2017 2:24 pm

Hi, here is a suggestion that I think may come useful, what do you think?

I often find myself using dozens of Phrase Files in the Text Expander module, with hundreds of phrases in total. All of the phrases have an unique abbreviation string (aX, bX, etc), and I also set a Phrase Files abbreviation string (a0, b0, etc). What I would like to suggest is, if possible, to add an extra column for the phrases balloon, showing the original string for each phrase. This way, it might help remembering the code for each phrase separately.

For example, when using the string a0, it will show a balloon with all phrases from this file, with the shortcut key from 1 to 9. What I want is an extra column showing the string for each phrase (a1, a2, a3, etc) between these two parts of the balloon. This would be best if there was an option to activate it or not. And it would be even better would be if there was also an option to disable the shortcut key column as well, as I rarely use it because my phrase files have way more than the number of keys.

Thank you very much in advance!
