One of the things I really like about the ipad and iphone is that you can add keyboard shortcuts to speed up your typing. For example, instead or writing Vectorworks, i have set up my ipad and iphone to recognise vw as a shorrtcut to the word Vectorworks.
This makes it a lot faster for me to write notes and blogs on my mobile devices.
Until recently I have been disapointed that my Nexus 7 tablet did not have the same technique. It is very productive and I have really missed it. But today I discovered how to set up the keyboard shortcuts.
On an Android tablet, you set up the shortcuts in the dictionary, so the first step is to go to the Settings and tab on the keyboard. In my case, I’m going to use the Google Keyboard. This is the standard keyboard that came with my tablet. I have tried to use Swype, but it does not have this option.
Tap on the option to +ADD (top left-hand corner).
Then type in the shortcut.
When you are finished, tap on the +ADD again.
