WHAT IS FLASHPASTE?


A very useful and daily used program that I have used on my personal computer since 2004. It simply lets you create a database of texts that you use often, and quickly paste the texts into whatever you are working on.

Here are some of my applications:

Text writing:

This morning, I changed 30 forms at http://www.kidlink.org/english/career. Soon, I got tired of typing "What must I do to " before pasting the rest of the line (example of paste: "become a dentist?")

Solution: I put "What must I do to " into Flashpaste. Each time I needed the text, I pressed Ctrl-U, a list popped up on my screen, and I clicked at "What must I do to " to insert it at cursor point in the html I was working on.

Form letters:

Example: standard welcome to new Chinese language translators.

Solution: I start writing a new email in Eudora. After having typed the email address, I place the cursor by Subject. Ctrl-U to open Flashpage, a click at "1st email Chinese" on the popup list, and the letter is pasted into Eudora.

Web development:

To type some hard to remember and type html codes in web pages. Examples:
- the Java script to show the last update page of a web page
(http://www.kidlink.org/english/society/jobs/tbottom.html )
- the Google analytics Java script.
(http://www.kidlink.org/english/general/web/analytics.html )

Commonly used phrases:

Example: http://www.kidlink.org (which I am tired of typing wrongly)


List of email addresses:

Every morning, I read online news, Kidlink statistics, etc.. Sometimes, I want to forward an article to someone in Kidlink.
Solution: a list of email addresses and related names in Flashpaste.

Happy People

I just wanted to drop youse guys a note to say thank you. This is the coolest little product and saves me an untold amount of time. I'm the bookmaster for the eBay store below. For entering listings, responding to client queries, and having canned responses to many other types of communications - it simply can't be beat. So, once again, thank you.
