In my previous post, Use automatic text replacement to speed up your coding and typing, I explained how I use AutoHotkey on Windows and equivalent software on OS X to speed up my typing and coding.
The idea is to use software to replace some easy-to-hit keys like “->” with a special symbol like “→”.
In programming, and probably in most other lines of work where you work with text on a computer, there are some symbols and special characters that you use a lot, but that are quite difficult to type. Perhaps you need to hit a combination of keys to produce the symbol, or even more time-consuming, you might need to open a menu or tool to insert the symbol.
