Pro Version Only

The following settings can only be changed in the <SETTING> hot code and by editing the configuration file directly using any text editor:

Attribute Value Comment
ExpanderGroupFileList
ExpanderMyFileList
A list of shortcut files that you want to open at startup. Files are separated by | For example:
 
ExpanderMyFileList = EDITABLE, user.shortcut|letter.shortcut

lists two files: user.shortcut and letter.shortcut. These two files are automatically open when Asutype is launched.
CorrectorGroupFileList
CorrectorMyFileList
A list of correction files that you want to open at startup. Files are separated by |  
SpellerGroupFileList
SpellerMyFileList
A list of spelling dictionaries that you want to open at startup. Files are separated by |  
NotAllowedHotcode A list of hot codes that you don’t want to allow to run. The hot codes are separated by | For example:

NotAllowedHotcode = EDITABLE, EXECUTE | OPEN

will ignore hot codes and when processing text shortcuts

 

By using two file lists for its data files, you can set Asutype to always open certain shared files in your group. For example, suppose that you want to share all technical terms used for project Discovery in your team, you can set it up as:

SpellerGroupFileList = FIXED, \\team-projects\discovery\discovery.spelling

in the group configuration file. Because the entry is marked as FIXED, and is in the group configuration file, it will not be overwritten by the same setting in a normal user configuration. As the result, Asutype will automatically open the “discovery.spelling” every time it starts up, regardless of the setting in each individual user configuration.
