Is there a way to delete a shortcut?

Seems to be unlimited. Some of mine are very long with control characters and all.Originally Posted by The OB

The email field in the Mail app? The auto-complete options have always worked well for me. For emails that I send often I just make sure I have a reasonably unique entry in the Contacts app. Start typing that contact name and the email pops right up. I do this for my Evernote email address; it is used to send email and attachments to Evernote. By the time I've typed eve, the address is listed. Fortunately I don't have any contacts named Eve.Another slight problem I find is that the shortcut facility puts a space after the shortcut by default, so when you use it to enter an email address it throws up an error that says you have entered an error in the email field........... can't see any solution to this though, apart from remembering to hit the delete key.

What sort of control characters can be included in a keyboard shortcut and how do you access them? Do they include the old teletype LF (Line Feed) and CR (Carriage Return)? If so you could build far more complex keyboard shortcuts. Better still would be a Return that didn't end the text input into the text field of the shortcut editor. By the way, thanks for the series of insightful suggestions. I've been using the letter 'q' as the first character of my shortcuts since it rarely occurs without a following 'u'. I think the comma is a little better solution since it isn't a "pinkie finger stretch". For me, a hunt and peck typist, 'q' is an easy peck. Best regards, Duncan
These are useful tips. Though I have made a shortcut for my email address and it caps my name even though I did not enter caps in the shortcut. I don't think it matters as emails are not case sensitive but I am just curious. Thanks
If you are at the beginning of a sentence, your email address will get capitalized (as does any first word of a sentence). That's a function of the auto-correct feature. You could always turn that off but you are correct - capitalization does not matter in email addresses.
