Shorthand for WindowsTM
Version 10 Revision History
Version 10.14 (November 7, 2020)
Updated links to use https:/pcshorthand.com instead of http://pcshorthand.com.
F1 to F24 function keys no longer reset Shorthand's keyboard tracker. This should fix the problem where some foot pedals are
emitting function key keystrokes which can confuse Shorthand.
Added "Do Not Confirm Abort" check box in Preferences -> Display. If this option is selected, clicking CANCEL in the @INPUT
dialog will not ask if you really want to abort.
Version 10.11 (November 14, 2015)
Saving of large dictionaries to the hard drive is now much faster (up to twice as fast).
If your dictionary gets corrupted (which may occur if your computer powers off
or restarts while
Shorthand is still saving your dictionary), you can now open an auto-backed up dictionary:
- Choose Open from Shorthand's File menu.
- In the "Files of type" dropdown box, select: "AutoBackups (*.~sp)"
- Select the dictionary you wan to open.
For example, if your dictionary was named "main.spf",
the auto-backed up
files are named "main.~sp", "main~1day.~sp" or "main~7days.~sp".
(TIP: Hover your mouse over the filename to see the file date and size.)
Improved compatiblity with newer Windows programs.
If you find that Shorthand is able to track your keystrokes (the yellow hint box appears) but nothing
gets expanded, try this setting:
- Choose Preferences from Shorthand's File menu.
- Select the "4. AutoReplace" tab.
- Select (check) the Use non-zero playback scancode box.
