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

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!October 28, 2011 at 6:45 pm #9753Yutaka EmuraKeymaster
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.
