You may have already discovered how to use other keyboard shortcuts to do things like closing applications (cmd+Q) and to open Spotlight (cmd+Space) – but did you know you could also create text shortcuts to help type longer groups of text faster?
Go to the Apple Icon and then Preferences/Keyboard/Text. There you’ll find where to create text substitutions (shortcuts).
These shortcuts work in many native Mac applications like Pages, Mac Mail, Messages, and Safari as well as third party applications like Evernote, but doesn’t seem to work in other places like MS Word or Chrome at this time.
