Youve seen how to use the normal TextExpander application interface, complete with Dock icon and menu bar, and youve seenhow to use the TextExpander quick-access menu interface, which offers most of TextExpanders features and capabilities from a single icon menu.
With OS X services and TextExpander hotkeys, however, youdont even need to clutter your menu bar or Dock with TextExpander icons if you dont want them: you can get much of theTextExpander functionality you need right from your keyboard.
This chapter tells you how to set up OS X services to enable thesnippet creation and editing commands on the TextExpander quick-access menu, it explains how those commands work, and it shows you how to set up hotkeys so you can use those commandsand otherswithout reaching for your mouse or trackpad at all.
Pardon me while I make a brief excursion into OS X geekery. Trust me,Ill be brief, and you dont have to understand why you need to do what Im going to tell you what to do in this short section. In fact, you can skip the next paragraph of background information if it makes your head spin: just follow the steps that follow it, and all will be well.See All Chapters

It does not make you feel better
If you can write out your grief
If you can surrender to the escaping moment
Of lyrical spell-binding.
The spell soon breaks.
And why should it not? It would be
Unjust if grief could be written
Out in a facile charge. The dumb, sad many
Have no such release. Their grief and mourning are just
The same as yours or greater. Words are not sunlight
After the dark night or terrible tempest of grief.
If they were it would not be right.
Would you have me turn to violent things,
The abrupt act of love, the possible war,
The intrinsic anger even in a butterfly’s wings?
I’ve sometimes had a go at this before,
Written of birth and death and the wounds of love
And the baby weeping its hidden life away.
Yet I remember how the very play
Of art is thrilling and at one remove
Only from chaos. Surfaces I leave
Now as I watch the April Avon turn
In dark green waves as ducklings have to learn
Fresh water little tides, their brief of life.
This is the time for it,
This full-moon-lit night and stars and absolute silence,See All Chapters

I am not a clinician; I have no friends who have recovered memories, nor do I have friends who have been accused by people who have recovered memories. I am an academic and am used to academic discourse. Even worse, or even better, I am an experimentalist and theoretician. Reading the material on recovered memories and false memories, I had something of a shock, for two reasons. The first was the nature of the material itself. Irrespective of the historical facts of the matter, I have found these stories of abuse and brutality, usually involving small children, extremely disturbing.
The second problem was that, rather than the one, flexible scientific truth that I had dealt in all my life, where outrageous hypotheses could be advanced without more than a sad smile in return, I now found myself in an area where certain hypotheses carried with them the threat of legal proceedings and possibly imprisonment. This was an unfamiliar area of discourse, where the very nature of truth became an issue. It became apparent that there are a number of different kinds of truth involved. Firstly, there is the historical truth: what really happened. Secondly, there is a narrative truth, which results from a process of remembering and constructing a version of past events; this process could take place in a therapeutic context, in which client and therapist engage together, with the aim of enabling the client to understand something about herself or himself. These two kinds of truth can be contrasted with legal truth, which is established on the basis of evidence admissible in a court of law. Finally, there is scientific truth, which actually concerns what is possible in principle rather than what might have happened in any particular case. In the public debates on the issues, we see, repeatedly, a dangerous slide from the truth or falsity of an individual matter to the generalization and back.See All Chapters
