Abbreviation-expansion

WiViK incorporates WordQ™ technology for its abbreviation-expansion. Abbreviation-expansion is a technique in which a combination of letters, an “abbreviation,” is used to represent a word or phrase. When you type an abbreviation followed by the Spacebar or Enter key, it expands to the assigned word or phrase.

You can create your own set of abbreviations that are easy for you to use and remember. For example, you may use hyt as an abbreviation for How are you today?

There is no limit on the number of abbreviations that may be saved in one set. Because you must memorize each abbreviation, a small set of abbreviations is suggested.

Your abbreviations will be caught as possible misspellings and held in the Spelling dialog (Options>My Words...>Spelling). You can choose to add them to your prediction vocabulary so that they will appear as predicted words. This can reduce keystrokes as well as be a helpful memory cue, especially with abbreviations of three or more characters.

A suggestion is to begin your abbreviations with the letter “x” so that they are obvious abbreviations.
