When you need to paste one of the existing strings into your
document, you open the String Selection dialog box, don't you?
After that you have to select the string you need. There are two
ways to do it: either with the arrow keys or with hot keys. 20 hot
keys are used for that: the first row from "1" to
"0" and the second row from "q"
to "p" on your keyboard. Hot keys always affect
strings located in the currently selected folder.
You can see that the hot key "4" corresponds to the string
"Vteacher.net" in the picture. So, if we press
"4" on the keyboard now, this string will be
selected at once. You only have to press Enter to paste it. Or you
can press "CTRL+4" and this string will be pasted
into the document at once. Now you can work with Flashpaste much
Hot key modes
You can control the behavior of hot keys changing the options of
the program. There are two groups of radio buttons on the
"Hot Key Labels" page of the Options dialog
Hot Keys in the String Selection Dialog Box:
- Don't use - Disables hot keys.
- Use Hot Key with CTRL for PASTING and without ctrl to
select item - Select this mode if you already feel
confident with the program.
- Use Hot Key with CTRL to SELECT item and without ctrl
for pasting item - We recommend this mode to new
Hot Key Labels
- Don't use - You will see regular document and
folder icons on the string tree.
- Use with icons - Hot key labels will be
superimposed over regular icons.
- Use only Labels without Icons - In this case,
standard icons will be replaced with hot key labels as shown in the
Hint: You can
switch between these modes right in the String Selection dialog
box, just press "F3".
Note: If you
disable hot keys, standard icons will be always displayed in the
Besides, you can choose the color of labels on this tab. We
think that red and blue suit well. But you can always experiment
with it and find the color you will like best. Just use the
"Label Color..." button.
