If you’re like most people, you use Microsoft Word on a daily basis, so you may be familiar with something called 'macros' which allows you to work with large portions of text that you use on a regular basis by simple keyboard shortcuts.
Since we are all spending so much more time online creating content, having this same type of option right in your web browser can be very handy.
If you find yourself starting to use Google Docs instead of Microsoft Word more often, check into the Auto Text Expander add-on for Google Chrome.
With this free add-on, you can create your own shortcuts for long e-mail addresses, sentences or other commonly used chunks of text as well as various signatures for e-mail messages that can be easily inserted using your own custom keystrokes.
For example, you can create a 'bizadd’ shortcut for your business address or 'persig’ for a personal e-mail signature or create anything else you might use on a regular basis.
The best part of this add-on is that when you create a shortcut, you can use it anywhere, on any text field for just about anything you use on the Internet.
