This is fun to do. Make two fields. In the target field, the one you will
type into, set a custom property "rawText" to some long list of words,
perhaps chapter 1 of your favorite novel. It is a good idea to strip all
punctation from that text before setting the prop.

In that field, place this handler:

on keyDown tKey
   if the length of me > 2 then put line lineOffset(me,the rawText of me) of
the rawText of me into fld 2
   pass keydown
end keyDown
