InputAliases

FilledSmallSquare InputAliases is an option for cells that allows you to define customized keyboard aliases for frequently used expressions.

FilledSmallSquare InputAliases is specified as a list with each element defining a single alias. The full form of each alias must be specified by its complete Mathematica expression.

FilledSmallSquare This option is typically specified in a style sheet.

FilledSmallSquare Note: to enter the character , press the EscapeKey key.
