To generate text you need to check at least one option. Result will be automatically copied into clipboard, so You don't even need to click Ctrl+C.

Hot keys
  • [0] check/uncheck all checkboxes
  • [1]-[9] groups of symbols that user can define in Options (only not null titles are visible)


  • Key - hot key, that changes checkbox. Both regular and numpad numbers are working.
  • Title - title that will be shown in the extension. Empty title is invisible in extension, so to use value title should be defined.
  • Value - value that will be added to the generated output, if checkbox is selected.
  • Check all options by default - if this checkbox is selected, default output of all options will be automatically generated at extension opening. That means, that users clipboard will be automatically overridden.
