    Hi there
    l need some help with Textexpander.

    I am trying to do the following .. its just an example :
    -- all scripts are set to Applescript --

    script 1 * abbreviation = test1
    set name to "%snippet:xn%" ( pop up with different names)
    set combo to "Hi "&name&", how are you doing? Have you read the latest Superman comic? %snippet:test2%

    "

    return combo
    ********

    script 2 * abbreviation = test2
    set name to "%snippet:xn%"

    if name is equal to "Max" then set Text1 to "%snippet:xasp%" (xasp = just a paragraph

    if name is equal to "Jane" then set Text1 to "%snippet:xcsp%"(xcsp = just a paragraph)

    set result to ((Text1))
    return result
    end

    *** the error l am getting is **
    l type test1
    i see:

    Hi Max, how are you doing? Have you read the latest Superman comic?


    *** whats missing is the test that is linked to " Max" in snippet test2 **

    the only problem l can think of is that its not reading what name is set in snippet test1

    please help

    regards
    Gotty
