National Football League (NFL) - Code Replacement Rosters


Select program: Photomechanic      AutoHotKey      Typinator    Enter Deliminator:
Photomechanic codes have the deliminator entered within the program. However, if you are using Typinator to expand codes in Aperature, Lightroom, Photoshop or your favorite editing program to avoid conflicting codes it is recommended to use a deliminator code to prevent conflicting codes. The backslash character () is recommended as a default. For example: \n\ would expand to New England Patriots and \n12\ would expand to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12).Without a deliminator Typinator's default behavior (with the quick expansion option enabled) would be to expand at the typing of the letter 's'. Thus, if you wanted s1 or s11, without a delminator it would expand to San Francisco 49ers before you could finish typing the rest of the code. If you do not wish to use a deliminator code, then you will need to go to the Typinator Preferences menu and select the expansion tab and disable quick expansion.

How to create codes? Prefix + Jersey Number Prefix + Initials
Recommended: use prefix + jersey (Standard). Using prefix + initials will generate codes based on the prefix and the player's initials. For example, ntb = New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12). If using initials, it is recommended to flag for dupicates.

Include jersey number codes? No #99  (99)

Short code / long name? Yes No
(i.e. use the code n12 instead of tpn12n for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) )

Output style (only if short code / long name is selected)? Standard Team After Name (Getty format) Team After Name with position (Getty format)
Standard output looks like: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) whereas Team After Name will appear as: Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots

Include multiple tab codes (only if short code / long name is selected)? Yes No
(i.e. the code n12 expands to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12), n12#2 = quarterback Tom Brady (12), n12#3 = Tom Brady (12), n12#4 = Tom Brady, n12#5 = Brady

Include NFL Officials? Yes No
(i.e. ref77 expands to referee Terry McAulay (77), etc.)

Include useful football codes? Yes No
(i.e. 1q = first quarter, fg = field goal, td = touchdown, fd = first down, stad = the stadium name for the home team, for example if the San Francisco 49ers are selected as the home team then the stad code will produce Levi's Stadium, etc.

Flag Duplicate Codes? Yes No
This will flag all duplicate numbers and require you to select the appropriate player. For example, the code d4 will yield: DUPLICATE***Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4)***Dallas Cowboys quarterback Zac Dysert (4)*** You will be required to delete the excess.

Include bracketed keywords? No Yes [last, first], Yes [first last]
Selecting this option will include codes for bracketed keywords for the various players. For example, if the [last, first], option is selected, in addition to the normal code for a player (i.e. n12 for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) ) a keyword code (i.e. nk12 for [Brady, Tom],) will also be created. Note: there is a comma appeneded to the "[last, first]," option
