That is a very nice stack. Thank you for pointing it out.

But actually the original poster on the forum wanted to write text in a
textfield and he wanted to use some shorthand or macro functionality. 
Whenever he typed two periods and a letter a list was supposed to pop up and
let him insert the text into the current text at the current position.
He was a doctor and wanted to save some of the repetitive work on putting
medications and how to use it into the letter also avoiding typos I guess.
I liked the idea and gave it a try:

the revlet:
