We missed this release a few weeks ago, but Ergonis Software has updated their popular text expansion utility Typinator to version 4.4, adding some welcome features and fixing a number of tweaky bugs. Improvements include control over the volume of the expansion sounds, fine tuning of the Quick Search feature, the Command-F shortcut entering the Search field appropriately, and numeric sorting of abbreviations and expansions that contain numbers. The bugs are all highly specific to different programs, and should improve Typinator’s behavior when used within Coda, Espresso, Sparrow, MessengerPro, FileMaker Pro, Adobe InDesign, Script Debugger, LaTeXiT, Google Chrome, Safari, RStudio, RubyMine, MacVim, iCab, MarsEdit, Photoshop, Editra, Unitron, Adobe Illustrator, and MacGiro. Phew! (€19.99 new, free update, 3.8 MB)
Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
