    Can I set up macros where I can do a key combo to type out a sentence?

    I work for an online question answering service and I find myself typing the same answers over and over. I would like to type something like cmd+shift+1 to type out a premade answer.

    Thanks!

    Butler can do this:

    In the Configuration section, add a "Smart Item" called "Keystrokes". You can set it to trigger on a keyboard shortcut and then in the "Keys" section type out the keys you want it to press.
