This options group controls how Asutype expands your text shortcuts.
Characters in this box are trigger characters, which are used to start text expansion (i.e. replacing a text shortcut by its full text content). Asutype will expand your text shortcuts when you type a shortcut followed by a trigger character. You can add and/or remove trigger characters by editing the characters in this box.

Show shortcut hints before expanding
If checked, Asutype will show the possible shortcut content in a yellow window at the top of your current working document as a hint.
