TextExpander 3.3

Send Article to a Friend

If you’ve dreamed of automating an automation utility, TextExpander 3.3 is here for you. The new version of Smile Software’s utility for turning short text snippets into longer blocks of text (or for fixing common typing errors) adds AppleScript support, along with a couple of sample scripts. The update also includes toolbar customization options for the Backup Now, Restore, and Logging commands; adds support for guillemets (« ») as delimiter characters; allows keypress macros (Tab, Return, Esc, Enter) to be nested in fill-in snippets; and automatically capitalizes contractions of “I” (such as “I’m” or “I’d”) at the beginning of sentences. ($34.95 new, free update, 5.6 MB)
