    it would be great if EmEditor had an autocorrect feature that supports wildcards/regex

    it will replace specific text on the fly, as you type

    many other programs have suck feature, but they lack wildcard/regex support and thus its very limited

    Thanks for your request!


    Five years passed by and no one seconded this request??? I can’t believe this!

    I am talking about something akin to Word’s AutoCorrect, albeit not with all the bells and whistles there. Just a simple substitute of a word (not part of a word!) as you type. An ESC would undo the substitution.

    This is great in cases like this:
    * Type an unlikely small string and it will be substituted by a (much longer) one;
    * Substitute a string by a non-keyboard character, e.g., type << and it will be substituted by '«'

    And there are many more!

    Yes, all these can be done by current features too but the AutoCorrect is a lot easier and intuitive!

    Hello mguttman,

    I believe the Snippets plug-in allows you to do the same thing. Please let me know if you try Snippets plug-in but can’t figure out how to use it.
