- by Olga-from-volga, a year agoRated 2 out of 5It did work some years ago. But seems to have stopped the Macro functions (Oct. 2020). Right Click still works, you get 2 stars for that.
Specially bad is the lack of proper instructions. So I add :A=Ä|:a=ä|:O=Ö|:o=ö|:U=Ü|:u=ü|:s=ß (where? about:addons or alt+k?) - I type :+a - and then what? How to execute?
A better manual and a few working examples would be great!
An English version would be great too. The hoover text is icelandig or something else.
- by Firefox user 12267115, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5Unfortunately, I have not found a good manual for the app. I do not really understand the 'help' at http://lingvo.org/abctajpu.
Basically, I find the idea of Esperanto good, but the user interface should be in English, because a lot more people understand that. It would be even better to offer different languages. I would like to help with a translation into German.
At the moment it is frustrating to figure out how to use the app properly.
- by ReneF, 4 years agoRated 2 out of 5Is it still possible to chose your own Hot-Key ? I looked for it, but was unable to find out how.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoBy pressing alt-K the abctajpu popup will appear, and if the first checkbox is ticked (⚡) then you go straight to the first text entry box (for macros) and when you enter a valid macro the popup automatically closes and the macro expansion is inserted into the page. For example if the abctajpu options defines macro c=ĉ and the ⚡ is ticked, then typing alt-k c will insert a ĉ. The choice of alt-k should be configurable by the Firefox brower itself (it's easy to find in Chrome, but seems to be missing in current Firefox). Also, due to Firefox bug 1324255, instead of typing alt-k c, you currently have to type alt-k tab tab c (hopefully this will be fixed soon). Note that Firefox on Android works a little differently.
