  1. Apple’s ‘text replacement’ equivalent in Windows?


    I use an apple computer at home but have a windows computer at work. With my MacBook I’m able to use “shortcuts” or Text Replacement for repetitive things I have to type in.

    For example, I just type “pq” for “Please let me know if you have any questions.” It saves me so many hours as I’ve already got so many shortcuts memorized.

    Is there an equivalent for this in windows that’s built in? I don’t want to have to download an app..

    List of tooltip texts

    • Do not translate the IDS_ strings, only what's inside the "s
    • \n is a newline character that acts like "return" is pressed. so text\n\ntext2 adds a blank line between "text" and "text2"
    • %s is replaced by some inserted text, you may move the %s to other positions within the text, but if multiple %s are present they will be inserted in the same order in all languages

    Apple Console equivalent in Windows 10

    Is there an equivalent to Apple's Console in Windows 10?

    As an Apple user of many years I've come to use Console to troubleshoot problems and to occasionally see what's going on with the system in general.
    I'd like to know what Windows is doing when I see the spinning blue circle attached to the pointer.

    Also, occasionally I've seen windows pop up then disappear. Is there any way to see what Windows is doing then?

    I'm using Windows 10.

    Apple’s ‘text replacement’ equivalent in Windows?

    Text Editor with Multiple Search Replace lines


    Hello All

    I am looking for a text editor which will allow me to take multiple lines from one text file (if it helps I also have the information in a spreadsheet) and will then replace then lines in another line of that document.

    I am trying to make a list for my books and comics.

    <Book Series="{name}" Number="{no.}" Volume="{year}" </Book>
    <Book Series="{name}" Number="{no.}" Volume="{year}" </Book>

    For the comics it would need to replace the above format so;

    <Book Series="{Batman}" Number="{01}" Volume="{2011}" </Book>

    Any suggestions would be great

    Thanks
