Automatic formatting (italicize) certain terms as they are typed.

I’m working on a manuscript where I would like certain terms to automatically be italicized (they are words in a fictional foreign language). Is there a way to automatically replace/format these words in Scrivener so that I don’t need to remember to do so manually?

I can do with Keyboard Maestro.

Using KM, would you pass it through the clipboard?

Here’s an example. Doing it for a list of words would be more complicated but ultimately doable, I think.


Thanks for the example–I was over thinking it! KM is good for that :wink:

I’m glad you asked, too. I may have uses of my own for that trick.
