MMP - Replacement TipsI had a retro moment today while thinking about the band the Replacements. I remember watching them on SNL (1986) and was blown away by the performance (you'll know what I mean if you Google the SNL episode). The only thing about today's MMP in common with the band, is the name.
When texting or emailing I often include my email address in the body of the message. Most often than not, I make a mistake typing the address because I'm in a hurry. Instead of typing out the address use a code to insert the email automatically into the message. To set up text replacement for an iPhone or iPad:
- Go to Settings - General - Keyboard - Text Replacement
- Tap the Text Replacement and in the upper right corner of the screen tap the +
- In the Phrase box type in your email address i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the Shortcut box type in two @@
- Tap Save
The second replacement tip is for Word. When writing a letter or report I usually consult a thesaurus to check for synonyms. Highlight the text that you want to find a synonym for, and press Shift + F7. A panel will pop up on the right side of the screen showing a list of related terms to choose from. Such a nifty tip courtesy of MS Word.
