Hey, thanks. I take it as a nice ‘you read my mind’ type complement.
Because, like I mentioned, I probably wouldn’t have come up with this idea myself.
(1) In the “Enter name of phrase field”: Allow the auto-complete/search to be optionally checkboxed for becoming hidden and disabled, only allowing for the precise manual text input + Return.
Not sure I get the advantage of having to type the entire name. I mean, you can do that anyway, usually it’s just not required?
(2) In the “Mode” pull-down menu: Allow for a new option - Insert at pattern editor cursor. Meaning a one shot (1X times) writing at the current editor cursor position in the pattern editor. Would speed up things in the workflow quite a lot.
Yes, absolutely - this was on the TODO list, just didn’t make it.
Actually I intended it as a switch, “relative to cursor position” or something like that. But now I can see that it might be better to have it as a separate mode. Because, then it can be accessed with keyboard shortcuts and via the smart-write dialog.
Another way to speed up the workflow would be if the dialog has a checkbox which, when enabled, would let you apply the phrase as soon as you make a match by typing and hitting return.
