BEING REVIEWED BY TORLEY... as Kool-Aid Man would say, "OH YEAHHHH."

Create new gestures or edit existing gestures when you have modify permissions. Gesture triggers can be edited with any permission setting.


  The gesture's required name.

  Optional description explaining what the gesture does.

Gestures can be triggered either by text, a shortcut key, or both. (Or neither, but this makes it harder to start a gesture.)


  Text shortcut to start the gesture. Triggers usually include / followed a few characters. A gesture must be active to be triggered: right-click the gesture in your inventory and choose Activate.
Replace with

  Optional text output the trigger is replaced with. Useful for expanding abbreviations into phrases. For example, if your Trigger is /hi and your Replace with is Friendly greetings!, entering the trigger results in Friendly greetings! appearing in local chat.
