ShortCuts in Palm OS are the system-wide user-defined text templates that you can easily insert into any text field.

Sometimes you need to write a lot of repetitive information on your Palm device. For example, you may be writing your company name quite often, or you may be finishing every document with the same signature.

With ShortCuts you can define these texts once, and then insert them with a single command anywhere you want.

Unfortunately this important Palm OS functionality is hard to use on the Treo and Centro devices... unless you have TopShortCuts!

The traditional way of inserting the shortcut character
Shortcuts are back!RNS:: logo

What RNS:: TopShortCuts does is insert the special Palm OS shortcut character (ShortCut) character. Depending on your preferences, this can be achieved with any of the following key combinations:

  • Alt press-and-hold
  • dot press-and-hold
  • S press-and-hold

The configuration screen of RNS:: TopShortCuts is available as a separate panel (labeled "RNS:: TSC") in the Palm OS "Prefs" application.

Please read below to learn how to make use of the Palm OS shortcut character character...

RNS:: TopShortCuts - the configuration screen
Defining your shortcutsRNS:: logo

Before you can use shortcuts, you have to configure them. To do so, use the standard "ShortCuts" panel in the Palm OS "Prefs" application.

You may add, modify, and remove your shortcut definitions in this panel. Several shortcuts have been pre-defined for you.

On the devices that normally don't have the "ShortCuts" panel, it is automatically activated with the RNS:: TopShortCuts installation.

Using your shortcutsRNS:: logo

To apply a shortcut, insert the Palm OS shortcut character character followed by a defined shortcut text. For example, typing Palm OS shortcut characterbr will result in inserting the Breakfast text.

That's it!
