Hey Adolfo,

Let’s see if we can speed that up a bit by removing need for a web browser.

I’m using plain text for this demonstration, but styled text can be inserted via AppleScript by using HTML in the text body.

Chris,

Awesome, no need for a text expansion app and brilliant using straight AppleScript to insert the text. Great job, i’m going to fiddle with the html for formatting per your suggestion.
