TextExpander 3.3.2

Send Article to a Friend

The appearance of Safari 5.1 has prompted Smile to release TextExpander 3.3.2, which fixes the text expansion utility's delimiter, key press, and cursor handling in Apple’s latest Web browser under both Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard. However, Smile notes that expanding into password fields in Safari 5.1 still doesn’t work properly. Along with other minor fixes, TextExpander 3.3.2 also now retains proper font size when expanding into Microsoft Word. ($34.95 new, free update, 5.7 MB)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

Put more effort into creative thought and less into repetitive typing with TextExpander 4, the award-winning text expansion utility from Smile. Whether you want to type faster or you already use TextExpander but want to harness its power more fully, let author Michael Cohen help you save time and lead you to typing nirvana.
