Symbol and text substitution

Posted in Tips & Tricks

Using symbol and text substitution, you can easily write any special character or symbol like ™ or ® just by typing something like TM or (r). You can adjust this and set your own, and it's easy to configure.

• Open System Preferences from the Apple menu and click "Keyboard"
• Click on the "Text" tab
• Adjust text to replace with a symbol or add more text to replace by hitting the plus (+) button

For example, if you set "JS" to be replaced with "John Smith", anytime you type JS and hit space the text will be replaced.
