Just started listening to Automators and registered - fair to say Automators has already cost me a fortune (TextExpander, Keyboard Maestro etc.)
I’m hoping someone can help me out…I’ve just signed up for TextExpander and I am enjoying getting all my snippets created
I would like to use Text Expander to generate my CD3 score for tasks which come into my Trello board. In theory, I would use a fill-in form to enter a description, Priority (1000, 100, 50 or 10), Size (estimated duration) and business Owner. Text Expander would then calculate the CD3 by dividing the priority by the size and paste them in a nice list like the following:
Priority: 1000 (entered via fill-in)
Size: 10 (entered via fill-in)
CD3: 100 (calculated by TextExpander)
Business Owner: Jamie Grant (entered via fill-in)
To start with, thank you @sylumer for your excellent advice and very useful help on several places on this forum!! There are many instances where your help solved an issue I was facing, both regarding shortcuts and TextExpander!
I am a teacher in law and am trying to figure out how to summarise the points to an exam directly in TextExpander, see below. We are using a very simple learning plattform and the points have to be written in plain text, otherwise we would use Numbers or Excel.
Questions 1-8: <fill in> points
Question 9: <fill in> points
Question 10: <fill in> points
Question 11: <fill in> points
Question 12: <fill in> points
Total points: *here I would need the sum for questions 1-12 fill ins*
I hope there is an easy way to adjust your script? I just don’t know how
Thank you in advance for any advice you might be able to provide!
I will also create a new thread next time. I have been following the forum since the podcast started but am quite new with the posting
