Auto CCM is a tool that streamlines formatting in CAS-ILE, a website that is used by University of Illinois NetMath students.
With Ospiro's browser extension, the tedious process of formatting math in CAS-ILE is now a breeze. Auto CCM semi-automates "Ctrl+M-ing": a task that so many NetMath students have come to find annoying. Now, CAS-ILE formatting can be easy as 3.14159265.... Just start Auto CCM and start pressing Ctrl+M until the cows come home!
1. On CAS-ILE, you will notice a menu above each Try-It. This is the Auto CCM menu.
2. Press the start button (or click Ctrl+/). The first instance of unformatted math in your notebook will become highlighted. Formatting this with Ctrl+M will cause Auto CCM to highlight the next instance of unformatted math. Continue formatting in this fashion.
Additional formatting tools:
-Skipping: Ctrl+, will advance the highlighted portion to the next instance of unformatted math. This is useful if Auto CCM erroneously highlighted something that should not be formatted.
-Returning: If you accidentally clicked away and unhighlighted a piece of text that should have been highlighted, Ctrl+. will rehighlight it.
-Terminating: If you wish to end Auto CCM’s operation prematurely, use the shortcut Ctrl+/ This is helpful because it is necessary to restart Auto CCM after making changes to the document. The same button/command will also start Auto CCM if it is not currently on.
-Deformatting: At all times (not just after you have clicked the Auto CCM icon) you can use Ctrl+’ to deformat math you have selected.
-Format All: Ctrl+; will automatically format all instances of math in a Try-It, no user input required.
-Saving: Instead of moving your mouse to press the save button, you can use Ctrl+S.
-Shortcuts: Click on the Auto CCM icon to have a menu of useful websites at your fingertips.
-Spell check: Auto CCM will check your spelling in text cells. (You must have browser spell check enabled.)
-Unsaved work warnings: Auto CCM will warn you if you are about to lose unsaved work.
-Theme customization: Use the options page to enable "Courseware Classic" or to change the color of the Auto CCM menu.
