    I'm trying to make the installation as simple as possible. I'm looking into multiple methods of installation, although 85% of my testers have not had installation issues.

(oh, and have internet connection!)
    That's what I love about these forums, everyone's so helpful. Thanks guys.

    Had to read more posts to see that everytime you add a word you have to restart. I was setting up some shortcuts and trying them in my email but nothing happened. I agree with the other post, we really need to be able to see the words in the file already. Do duplicate entries stay in the database? Also I noticed when I put SM for Sunrise McMillian it didn't change over but when I added thise for this it worked and it didn't matter about the case of the words. I also notice preferences and help are not available.
    You're welcome, happy to create the app for you all.

    Seeing the last words added to the file might be my next feature addition.

    Duplicates won't occur. I delete before I add.

    I just tested adding sm for Sunrise McMillian.
    I also added SM for Sunrise McMillian. Both work for me.
    I have a slightly updated app, as I've enhanced and corrected some things.

    Can one of the other testers please step in and see if your additions of sm and SM for Sunrise McMillian work? Thanks everyone.

    I haven't had a chance to modify preferences or add a help screen yet... I'll get to that at some point.

    When I add only sm - Sunrise McMillian it will change it to Sunrise McMillian in ether capital or lower case.

    So how will we remove this app when we are done?

    With 1.1 upgrade it resets the auto correct file the app upgrades. The app work fine, just have to add everything again...

    Just delete the app files from the /opt/ directory.

    Hi all, I haven't upgraded to 1.1 yet. So the recommendation, Rennat, is to make a backup of your autocorrect file first, so you can restore your modified entries after the upgrade?

    BTW, if you're Unix savvy, AutoCorrect Edit adds and modifies entries to the end of the file so that you can find your modifications/additions easily. I purposely did not re-sort the dictionary file. Not sure that the sorting would speed things up, but it works without sorting, and makes cases like this restoring of your entries easier to handle.

    Actually, you don't have to reset after every word. You just have to reset to get the words to take affect. I went on the web for text acronyms and added 10 before I reset. All of them work.

    Rhong, I love the app. Thank you so much for creating it. Right now I'm using it as a short-cut feature. It gives back the short-cut option that previously existed in PalmOS.

    How long will it be in beta test, through PM, instead of Homebrew? If you were able to help me install it, you're ready for primetime. I think people will be clamoring for this app once it's out there and they know the potential. You may want to call it AutoEntry-Short cut App so that people don't get it confused with the Autoreplace dictionary that people are using (which takes a lot more resources from your Pre).

    I'm adding some more words today and then I'll probably become an sms and e-mail fiend.

    For upgrades, I think you and everyone has already mentioned them.
    1)The ability to add w/o reset
    2) To be able to view the shortcuts or words that you've added.
    3) A date stamp (the Palm OS allowed you to enter ds for today's date).

    Aside from that, can you try to write a text completer app? Much the same as TextPlus or WordLogic apps?

    Anyway, love the app and thanks again for all your hard work.

    I've emailed current beta testers the un-installation instructions. Check your email. Since the Pre considers this app as a stock-installed app, it can't be removed by standard means at this time.

    id really like to see the option to search the auto correct file for a work, and then be able to edit/delete its auto correct option.

    I may be able to implement this. I'd create a search button, and if found, then it populates the replacement field with the current replacement. If not found, it will report that nothing was found in the status area below.

    The other option is to leave the first screen as-is (to keep it simple) and have a second screen with a test text area to test entries. (This test area would be especially nice once we figure out how to load the new dictionary into memory without rebooting.)

    Comments anyone?

    I'm kinda conservative. I'd like to release but want to play it safe. People have been giving me positive feedback, and I haven't heard any major show stoppers. I haven't heard any bugs yet either, just recommended enhancements. Maybe I'll release this week.

    Actually, I'm using the autoreplace (or autocorrect) dictionary to implement this application. It serves both purposes, creating shortcuts (which is how I use it) and for correcting spelling. I'm going to remove the dictionary entries from my Pre because I have good spelling and the dictionary replacements have burned me of late. I use it 90% of the time for shortcut entries. I leave it always running so I can add entries quickly. It isn't a memory hog, and has a puny application footprint.

    This would be tough as I mentioned, I'm exploiting the autoreplace dictionary file of static values, and not replacing on the fly.

    I'll have to consider what else to write. This application should keep me busy for a while. Thanks again.

    I knew the ds was far-reaching. I just thought I'd through it in there. In the meantime, I'm using abbreviations for days and months and that's working fine. Thanks again for the great app.
