I wonder if there is anything like Word’s auto-replace function in spelling for Scrivener?
I realise if there isn’t it may be due to OS X textedit reader, so this is not a feature request.
But if it exists and I just am looking in the wrong places, I’d like to know where it is!
For example, I want to type [c and have it replaced with [Correspondent] (user defined in a panel somewhere).
Is this feature there somewhere?
No, I’m afraid there is no auto-correct feature at this time. However, there are third-party applications that can be used with Scrivener for this. For instance, TextExpander does this and I hear good things about it. There are other programs, too.
Thanks and all the best,
Good I asked about this, as I didn’t know about 3rd party apps. TextExpander looks good, but I decided to try out Typinator first.
Reading a couple of reviews makes it look like Typinator is friendlier to other languages besides English.
Besides TextExpander and Typinator there’s also TypeIt4Me.
I use the last and I like it. However, the main reason why I bought it was because it was on promotion.
I think they all do pretty much the same and I would advise you to try them all before deciding.
