    Forgive my ignorance - but how do we use the date stamp or other shortcuts (found in the preferences drop down menu) on our treo 600's? I would like to be able to use the date and or time stamps when taking notes on the treo.

    thanks!

    Install Graffiti Anywhere and then you can do the shortcut stoke on the screen and viloa. This is what I do with Doc to Go when in an Excell or Word file

    Another way you could do it (withouth the stylus) would be to:

    1. press 's'
    2. press '0/Alt' to bring down a menu
    3. scroll down to the shortcut key icon and press 'center' in 5-way button
    4. enter your shortcut (ie: ds, ts, dts, etc.)

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks, Doug, that's what I was looking for - doesn't seem like much of a "shortcut", though

    yea, I agree, That is why I use the free Graffiti Anywhere and use the "tap on corner" to activeate.

    It would be nice to get the shortcut project going again for TreoButler, like the way the command menu pulls up.

    So WHAY WERE they not thinking, when they made the Shortcut via the keyboard such a long cut.

    This freeware application makes this process much easier.

    There is a faster way to use the Alt key:

    1. Press 's' Alt
    2. Press Alt three more times to scroll to shortcut
    3. Enter your shortcut

    Note that you do NOT have to use the 5-way or even select the shortcut character before entering the actual shortcut. This works for any Alt-key combination. You can use the Alt key itself to scroll down the list, and you can start typing the next desired letter and it will select the alt character AND output the next letter. You can also use the spacebar to just select an alt character.

    The reason I mentioned the shortcuts utility is because it cuts down on all of those key presses. After it's configured, you can just press ".t" (without the quotes) to get a times stamp or a date stamp etc.

    I realize that, just wanted to give an alternative to people like myself that dont use shortcuts enough to install a hack. Plus, I dont think many people realize that quick method of using the Alt key for normal typing.
