Smart Editing (Acts in MS Word only)

Azhagi's Addins for MS Word - DT module
So, as you can see, 'Smart Editing' is primarily nothing but treating uyirmey agaram (க, ச, ட, etc.) as mey itself. As an user, I felt that 'Smart Editing' will be intuitive and helpful. But, if you feel it won't be helpful or it will be counterintuitive, then you can always keep the "Smart Editing ON" option unticked. As simple as that.

Typing vs Editing
In case you are not clear as to what exactly I mean by 'Editing' (when compared to 'Typing'), then read ahead.

"Typing" means keying in your Tamil letters in your normal flow, forming one Tamil word after another, separated by a space or any other punctuation. For e.g. "அம்மா, நீங்க எப்படி இருக்கீங்க? நாங்க நலம்.". During this process, 'Smart Editing' will not take effect. In other words, the treatment of uyirmey agaram (க, ச, ட, etc.) as mey will not take place.

"Editing" means
  1. Shifting or moving the caret point (using Arrow keys, Page Up/Down keys, Mouse cursor, etc.) to different areas in your document to make corrections (e.g. correct spelling mistakes) here and there. This is where keeping the 'Smart Editing ON' option ticked will prove very useful, I feel, personally.

  2. Shifting or moving the caret point (using Arrow keys, Page Up/Down keys, Mouse cursor, etc.) to a different area in your document and start "typing" continuously, as usual, from that point, to insert a new content. In this case, at the very beginning of starting to type out a new content, 'Smart Editing' may come in handy I believe, if in case you start typing from the end of a word, intending to correct the last letter of the word before starting to type continuously. For e.g. Suppose after typing "முதியவர்கள நாம் அன்புடன் நடத்த வேண்டும்", you notice that you need to correct the "ள" to "ளை". So, you can move the caret point to be placed after the word "முதியவர்கள" and then just type 'ai' to change ள to ளை. In other words, to change 'முதியவர்கள' to 'முதியவர்களை'.

  3. Correcting a word after pressing backspace key can also happen. For instance, as soon as you finish typing முதியவர்களிடம், if you feel like changing it to முதியவர்களை, then you will be naturally pressing backspace key to do the correction. You will press it 4 times so that the word is now முதியவர்கள. At the point, if 'Smart Editing' is ON, then you can easily type 'ai' to change 'ள' to 'ளை'. In other words, to change 'முதியவர்கள' to 'முதியவர்களை'.
Well, how far 'Smart Editing' is helpful for you can be ascertained by you only when you type lengthy contents and do frequent "editing". If in case you find 'Smart Editing' not helpful OR adds to confusion OR counterproductive, then, as already suggested, you can always keep the "Smart Editing ON" option unticked. As simple as that.

Editing of External Copy/Pasted Texts (Specific to MS Word)

  • The option "Enable correct editing for 'copy pasted' external Tamil texts also" would not have been necessary but for the manner in which MS Word (even 2007) behaved when I tried to apply the 'SuperFast Editing' feature to Tamil texts copy/pasted from external sources (Notepad, WordPad, Gmail, Facebook, Websites, etc.).

  • What happened was that the vowel signs did not join with the uyirmey agarams at all and appeared disjointed. You can see for yourself what I mean if you keep this option unticked and copy/paste some Tamil text typed in Notepad to MS Word and start editing that external text at various places. For e.g. trying to change 'க்' to 'கி' by typing 'i' after 'க்'. What happened was that 'கி' got displayed as '‌ி'.

  • Because of this behaviour of MS Word, I had to introduce this new option and it involved additional work for me.

  • In case you are not going to copy/paste any text from external sources into your MS Word documents, then my suggestion for you would be to keep this option UNTICKED. Because, the usual typing process will be faster, with this option unticked.

  • Also, if your primary typing activities are only in applications other than MS Word, then also, you shall keep this option UNTICKED always.

  • If you, as an user, can find out find some or other way (say, some setting in MS Word) by which the abovesaid behaviour of MS Word can be set right, kindly let me know. Then, there would not be any need for this option.

  • NOTE: If the abovementioned 'கி' is copy/pasted in Notepad, WordPad, etc., they appear correctly as 'கி' itself. However, it appears as '‌ி' only when copy/pasted in Gmail. That makes me feel that since MS Word internally uses XML to store all the characters of a document, it perhaps stores 'கி' as separate characters (க and ி), enclosing each of these characters in separate XML markups. The case must be similar with Gmail also, I believe.
