For more info, visit the Help section inside the app, or watch the promo video on this page.

⋆Snippets⋆ - expand abbreviations Define custom abbreviations, and expand them by simply pressing the hotkey (default: Shift+Space). It can be even a full-length email to your customer! Example: "brb" can expand to "Be right back!" Think of these as "canned responses".

⋆Placeholders⋆ - fields (inside snippets) which can be given dynamic values on using the snippet. Example: snippet "wishBday", which you can use to wish your friends Happy Birthday! Since the name of the friend keeps changing, so you can add a placeholder in the snippet body, as "%name%" (without quotes). It'll be auto-highlighted whenever you use the snippet and you can type your friend's name into it.

⋆Mathomania⋆ - do math without leaving your text editor, and without calculators. Simply type the math expression inside the [[ and ]] and press = to get the results. (watch the promo video for details) Parentheses and exponentiation is also supported. Example: "[[ 15% * 600 =]]" gives "90" and "[[ (5+6) * 15^2 =]]" gives "2475".

This extension has been a huge asset to efficiency and simplification. In my role at work I often times have to type out the same thing in multiple locations so to have this has save me SOOO much time. I have referred several colleagues to this and I think it has been just as beneficial for them as it has been for me. Absolutely love it!
