I often get projects that haven't been configured well, w/r to abbrev.
So I get projects that contain:
Instead of hy. valve (hydraulic valve).
In my target language, the 'valve' should have a lowercase letter.
It would be tremendously helpful (for macrophiles) to have a property Content of previous segment, that can be checked.
But I have no idea how CafeTran Espresso could pass this to the macro tool (e.g. Keyboard Maestro, in my case).
Perhaps someone else?
Via the clipboard, this would be possible and generic (cross-platform).
Press (simulate) keyboard shortcut 'Copy content of previous segment'.
The macrophile could assign this clipboard content to a variable and restore the previous clipboard content then.
I mean: the interaction could take place via the clipboard.
