Address

The address glossary gives a brief example of what an address glossary may look like.  Once you develop your own address glossary, you will be able to write any address by typing only a few letter, and with Instant Text they expand into the entire address.

 

AgesV

This glossary contains abbreviations for age-related terms. It is intended to be included in or merged with other glossaries. All ages appear with digits in [Phrases]. For example, "y2" produces "2-year-old" and "y20" produces
"20-year-old"

 

Business

The business glossary contains the most frequent words and phrases used in business letters. It contains over 900 very commonly used phrases like "for example" or "as a matter of fact", "on the other hand" etc.

 

Contract

The contract glossary contains legal language and may give you an idea of how frequently used phrases can be typed with only a few keystrokes. It illustrates the kind of continuations you may get with legal language.

 

Demo

The Demo glossary has long words such as supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, which you can write with just two letters, and formatted entries such as green or red. It also includes a few stock phrases that you may use when challenged to show your speed ("Now is the time..." and "The quick brown fox...").

 

Empty

The Empty glossary gives you the structure of an Instant Text glossary file that is ready to be filled with whatever you want to have in it, should you decide to do glossary entries one by one. You can rename it and make it your personal glossary.

 

Internet

The Internet glossary contains frequent e-mail extensions like @worldnet.att.net and web site addresses for car rentals or hotel reservations.  You type "her;" and get the Hertz reservation site or "sh" and get the Sheraton web site address. 

 

Legal

The Legal glossary contains frequently used words and legal terms.  This may be used as a starting glossary that can be merged with or included in more specific glossaries automatically compiled from existing documents.

 

Shorts

The Shorts glossary can be merged or included into a glossary when you want to expand with the space bar. It prevents unwanted expansions for "at", "on", "if", "cold", etc.
