We have a string of words and want to put brackets either around one word or more than one word:

word word word word word => (word) word word word word

word word word word word => (word word word word) word

Make sure you have the following entry in your working glossary:
{command}({NoSpacing}{PickList}ctrlright{/PickList}{NoSpacing}
and the following entries in the pick list glossary:
{command}{Ctrl Right}{NoSpacing}{PickList}ctrlright{/PickList}
{command}{Backspace})
The last 2 entries must have the same short form ctrlright

Now you place the cursor in front of the first word and expand the short form of your working glossary entry adbm which will put the opening bracket (

You should see come up in the advisory the pick list entry:
{command}{Ctrl Right}{NoSpacing}{PickList}ctrlright{/PickList}
Just press ; to get to the end of the first word and press Shift ; to expand the 2nd suggestion
{command}{Backspace}) which will put the closing bracket.

If you want to include more than 1 word in brackets you just continue to expand the 1st suggestion of the pick list glossary by pressing the ; until you get to the spot where you want to add the closing bracket.
