number of entries. Each entry has a name and value. All
you need do is activate FlashText by hotkey, select an entry
from the entry name list and the value of the entry will
be pasted into the current window. FlashText also supports
flexible text templates which can generate different text
from different parameters supplied by the user.
FlashText is most suitable for occasions with repetitive
text like filling web forms and composing business emails.
With FlashText, you never need to manually those repetitive
text again. Simply retrieve and paste it!
For translators, you can define the entry name to be the
original text and the entry value to be the translated text.

FlashText is released under FREEWARE license.
Run FlashText. Add several entries into the database.
Each entry contains an illustrative entry name and the actual
value. For example, you can define the following entries,
1003 Wellbirth Road,
Houston, TX 77345, USA
First activate the window where you want the text pasted.
Then press the activation hotkey (CTRL+F8 as default) to
activate FlashText. Select an entry, press ENTER or the
paste toolbar button to paste the value of the selected
entry into the current window. You can also double-click
an entry for quick-paste.
The value of an entry can be a template if you include
parameters in it. Each parameter should be placed inside
a pair of percentage signs, i.e., %parameter%. The parameter
name is not allowed to contain spaces. For example, you
can define the following template for an entry named "Order
Thanks for ordering %ProductName%
and choosing our products. Your order number is %OrderNumber%.
Your tracking number is %TrackNumber%. We wish you enjoy
using this product. If you have any questions or meet any
problems, don't hesitate to let us know.
When you paste this entry, you will be prompted to enter
the actual value of the parameters. FlashText will automatically
generate the final text by replacing the parameters with
their actual value.
