Here there is a little script that allows the use of hotstrings (text replacement as we type) inside the Blender’s text editor.
text_replacement.py (4.3 KB)
- Copy text_replacement.py inside Blender addons folder:
- Enable the addon at Blender user preferences.
- Activate it at Text Editor’s properties (Ctrl + F).
If for any reason the script enters in an infinite loop (never stops replacing text), dont panic, theres no need to kill Blender, just deactivate the scripts at Text Editors properties so theres no risk of losing work. I believe i have covered all cases in which this may happen but just in case.
Hope you like it!
