Using TextExpander to Type Faster

I often make mistakes typing all sorts of words in networking. Vendors like VMware & CheckPoint use camel case and there are plenty of weird words.

Here is a screenshot of my “Spelng” folder 1 that I use to type through non-English words and get correctly typed and capitalised.

Couple of tips – set the content to be “Plain Text”, and ignore the case of your own abbreviation so if you type the shortcut wrong, it will still work.

    Minor nitpick: If you really want to make Phoneboy happy, you’d change checkpoint/CheckPoint to “Check Point”

      My opinions on CheckPoint are pretty clear… :)
