Lintalist: Searchable interactive lists to copy & paste text, run scripts, using easily exchangeable bundles - (snippet manager, text expander)


Lintalist allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. The text can be interactive, for example, you can automatically insert the current time and date, ask for (basic) user input or make a selection from a list etc. forum thread:

Other features:

  • Assign keyboard shortcuts to your favourite Snippets
  • Use abbreviations (shorthand) for your favourite Snippets
  • Run scripts which can be included in a Bundle
  • Use the standard Plugins (date, variables, counters, clipboard etc) or develop your own

Lintalist is open source and developed in AutoHotkey, an easy to learn scripting language for Windows (WinXP and above)

Lintalist is written in AutoHotkey, a free and open-source utility for Windows. You can learn more about AutoHotkey at The source code for AutoHotkey is available at

Note: lintalist.exe is simply a renamed autohotkey.exe included for convenience. This script requires a working copy of autohotkey.exe to be present in order to run user scripts defined in bundles. If you have AHK installed you can safely delete lintalist.exe and just start lintalist.ahk directly.
