    Hi there!

    I can't seem to find the answer to my question no matter how much I google. Thanks in advance...:)

    Back in the days I used a PC, I used to be able to assign custom quick phrases (like "Sincerely, Emily") as a keyboard shortcut. For instance I'd assign my phrase to F3 or something...and then voila!!! I could insert commonly typed phrases into my emails or word processing. SO NICE! And I miss that. Anyone seen this feature in Mac Mail?

    Thanks!
    Emily

    It's not exactly what you're looking for, but you may want to look into TextExpander. It may actually prove to be more useful than just a simple 'quick phrase'...
