How do I use a template with specific parameters?

Type Pilot is a type assistant software that allows you to use dynamic email templates. This page will show you how to use this feature.

Perhaps you already understand how easy and convenient it is to insert text templates for your documents, letters, programming code, and so on. The great thing about Type Pilot is that you can do it in any word processor. Perhaps you want to use the dynamic templates – those are the ones in which the words may vary. As an example, you can use a personal email template:

Hello ……,
We are glad to inform you that

When you enter the corresponding keyword to type such a template, you are asked to specify a name:

Using templates: specify a name

After clicking OK, you get the following:

Hello John,
We are glad to inform you that

To set up a dynamic template for this case, do the following:

1. Click the New Phrase button to create a new phrase and enter the text of the phrase. To insert the Name parameter, go to the menu Insert | Parameter… in the Edit Phrase window:

Using templates: create a new phrase and click menu Insert | Parameter...

A new window appears.

Using templates: insert parameter name

Enter Name and click OK.

Using templates: after inserting parameter name click OK

#parameter:Name# is inserted automatically into your phrase.

Using templates: parameter:Name is inserted automatically into your Phrase

Finish your phrase and define a keyword, for example, hello01. Click OK.

Using templates: finish your phrase and define a keyword

Now, if you type hello01, you are asked to specify a name.

Result: if you type a phrase, you are asked to specify a name
