I just realized: using
alt to mouse-select multiple cursors in VS
Code does not trigger the OSL to fall back. Is that a task I do with the
dictionary instead? No, dictionary can’t help there. HMM!
Perhaps a key on the symbol layer that does a
TO(BASE). yup, that works!
I’ve also printed out some cheat-sheets, and now I guess nothing is stopping me from developing some muscle memory…
I’ve started a tiny bit of coding with steno. It’s alive! Starting to think about building my own “single stroke commands” dictionary, but because it’s so many different chords, thinking of building a generator that takes an input of all the chords for each modifier (plus a few others for nav/cursor control), and then it prints out all the hundreds of permutations! Some things I’m learning about dictionary entries as I do this:
/is present to delineate strokes
-is present to delineate left-hand vs right-hand, but only
- if there are no left-hand keys in the chord
- if writing it down without a
-would show ambiguity (
- if there is no ambiguity? (e.g.
- only if there’s also no
Does Learn Plover! have anything to say on this subject?
When defining dictionary definitions by hand, you should be sure to include the hyphen when appropriate
I think I can handle that. Why not always generate a
-until I see it break?
One final note, someone’s blog recommended keeping the dictionary handy, that being able to quickly add or edit definitions was really helpful. I wonder if I could set up a single key in my layer or a brief in a dictionary to run that Plover function?
