TextExpander 3.4.1

Send Article to a Friend

Gearing up for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Smile has released TextExpander 3.4.1, which has been updated with the Smile developer ID that is used by Mountain Lion’s Gatekeeper security feature (see “Gatekeeper Slams the Door on Mac Malware Epidemics,” 16 February 2012). The release also improves expansion reliability in iWork applications, solves many instances of transposed letters, adds two use properties to AppleScript support, and adds a new Sort by Most Used capability. It’s rounded out by several minor fixes. ($34.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.9 MB)

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