Your own Dic­ta­tion Com­mands

Mac Format - - MASTER YOUR MAC -

To cre­ate a com­mand that types ‘MacFor­mat’ when you say ‘macfor­mat’, open the Ac­ces­si­bil­ity pane in Sys­tem Pref­er­ences and se­lect Dic­ta­tion. Click Dic­ta­tion Com­mands and then press the ‘+’ at the bot­tom of the list. Type ‘macfor­mat’ in the When I Say box, then choose Paste Text from the Per­form list. Type ‘MacFor­mat’ into the box that sits be­low. You can use this to cre­ate short­cuts for long pas­sages of text too, by giv­ing them a unique ‘When I Say’ and typ­ing the pas­sage into the ‘Per­form’ box.
