Import Simple Text Shortcuts


Recommended Posts

I have a .dat file i used on another shortcut program. It wasnt working out but i do still have the .dat file it was reading along with a TEXT file of all of the shortcuts.

All of these shortcuts are simple text and ExpressScribe understands them.

The line items are written as such

"AADPA=American Academy of Dental Practice Administration"

Which means that if i type. the letters A A D P A it will auto populate "American Academy of Dental Practice Administration"

I had to add spaces between the letters for the sake of this message because it kept kicking out the expansion.


What id like to do is IMPORT the text file into FastFox but the text file is several lines long.

It has about 24,000 shourtcuts typed into it.


I cant possibly copy and paste each one of them so im working if FastFox will import a new shortcut for comma seperated items or if theres another way to have fastfox recognize them.

Hello Walterwhite, sadly, the program does not offer the option to load shortcuts from other applications. Only the dat files created from another FastFox installation would be read from that option. 

Also, FastFox has a shortcut limit of 2052 shortcuts only.
