When at the beginning of the word that I want the comma to appear before, I hit the comma button, and it enters a comma right there and the cursor stays there. In StenoCAT, the cursor would move to the next word after you entered a comma, which is helpful when you have a series that you want to enter commas between.
Example: "I had cherry blueberry and apple." If I have my cursor on "blueberry" and enter a comma, a comma will show up after "cherry," but the cursor will stay in the same spot after I enter the comma. I want it to go to "and" so that I can just hit the comma button twice without having to move my cursor. Does that make sense?
Ah, I think I get it. Just want to make sure. It won't work the way Marla wants, which is just to use a comma and move to the right; you need to use a different speed key, and you chose Shift+F9.
Personally, if I'm going to use two keystrokes anyway, I'd rather do comma L than to try to learn a different hyperkey for such a basic function. But if one wanted to have combos for two commas, three commas, that could be worthwhile!
I punctuate so much while I'm writing (almost to my detriment), it's not such a big deal. I just wanted to see if it would work! :)
Uh, I think you guys might be trying to reinvent the wheel. The comma is a macro that's already built into Total Eclipse. So go to your user settings, edit tab, macro, buttons, and scroll on the macro you want to edit (in this case, I think it would be the type comma command), highlight it, and then edit. Just add the move right one word command.
Of course, looking at what I just wrote, looks highly complicated, and it might be easier to just what you guys are suggesting.
You need to choose which one you want. It won't automatically do both. I like s' so I have that setting. If you want it to be both ways, you need to have two different strokes.
I think it's in the Metadictionary. This is what mine shows:
I think if you take out the [s]' that will do it.
I think there's a simpler way. It was mentioned either on CRF or CR-Net. Might want to do a search for it. Going to the source, CR-Net, with the question will give you the definitive answer from support.
