Getting started

Let's save our first phrase in PhraseExpress:
  1. Type any frequently used text in your favorite text editor.
  2. Click the PhraseExpress task bar icon and select "New phrase…" (or press CTRL+ALT+C).
  3. Enter a meaningful description for your new phrase:

    Skip the other options for now. We will cover those later.
  4. Pressing OK saves the phrase.

Done. You will never have to type that phrase again!

  1. Place the cursor anywhere you wish to insert the new phrase.
  2. Press ALT-SPACE - This is the one hotkey you might want to learn as it opens the phrase menu.
  3. Type any part of the description of the new phrase.
  4. If the phrase menu narrowed down sufficiently, select the desired phrase with the UP and DOWN keys and press ENTER to insert the phrase.

Now, you probably want to grab a tea/coffee and grieve the rest of the day over how you could have lived without it.
