When I was a Windows user, I loved ActiveWord, an application that lets you assign almost any function to any word or combination of keystrokes you choose. I missed it when I switched. Now I've found what seems to be the closest thing for the Mac. What's great about these programs is their mnemonic ability. You don't have to remember some archane keystroke combination. Want to open Safari? Type "Safari" or "web" or any word you've assigned. Sen a letter to Bob? Type "email bob." The secret is the program only listens when you type a backstroke after the code word. Makes so much sense, I don't know why all computers don't come with it standard. This is just the trial version; I'll repost if I purchase and discover things that are worse or better.

I have been using this for a while, and I have to say it is not very good. It works very slowly and, the biggest drawback is that if your shortcut is contained in another word it thinks you want it changed. So suppose you just want to create a shortcut where "be" expands to "beer." But if you type "abe" it will appear as "abeer." It should be able to tell the difference.
