VMware Text Expander Snippets

One of the problems working with VMware is the sheer number of VMware products, and VMware’s unfortunate predilection for renaming everything. A lot. I mean they rename their products so often, and buy so many companies, that its impossible to keep track of, much less spell everything right and get all the acronyms down.

Being a Mac and IOS guy, the solution for me is TextExpander, which a is a keyboard expansion utility that shares definitions via DropBox. For instance, I have a shortcut where I type ;sig1 and my email signature expands out. This make typing much, much faster, especially on an iPhone keyboard. 

Make sure to make one to change vmware to VMware!
