Text Expander Chrome web store extension



Run the Chrome online web store extension Text Expander using OffiDocs Chromium online.

Expand a snippet of text to a longer form, using a hotkey (e.


, "so" → "site:stackoverflow.


Works in most text inputs, such as search boxes and multi-line comment fields.

Adding a text snippet: • Click/open the extension.

• In the first box: enter the abbreviated text, without spaces, to be replaced a longer form in the second text box.

• In the second box: enter the expanded form, replacing the "prefix" text from the first box.

To use a saved snippet: • In any input box, type your prefix text and use the assigned shortcut (default is "Ctrl+Shift+G".

• For the expansion to work, the prefix text must be separated from other words by a space.

• The caret (blinking text cursor) must be on or around the prefix word.

For example, lets say the pipe character (|) is your caret placement: how to exit vim? so| (valid) how to exit vim? s|o (valid) how to exit vim? |so (valid) how to exit vim?| so (invalid) To remove a text snippet: • Click/open the extension.

• Check any boxes you'd like removed.

• Click the "Remove" button and reopen the extension.

Notes and limitations: • Expansion won't work in some input fields.

• Expansion won't work in the Omnibox (Chrome's address bar/search bar).

• Expansion won't work in the startup page search bar.

• The prefix text doesn't need to be highlighted.

• The prefix-expansion pair is saved locally on your browser.

Change Notes: [1.1.0] • Changes: 2nd input box now changed to <pre> to allow multi-line expansions.

• Bug fix: Long expansions in the extension are now scrollable.

• Bug fix: Removing local storage items doesn't refresh list.
