Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

TextExpander 4.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Smile has released TextExpander 4.0.1, a maintenance follow-up for the recently updated typing shortcut utility with a modicum of fixes and improvements. The release restores transparency to menu bar icon, makes the checkbox label clickable for optional section fill-ins, and updates its help section for Japanese and Italian localizations. Additionally, equality abbreviations in the Symbol group now end with two equal signs (such as “>==”). It’s rounded out by many other unnamed minor fixes and improvements. ($34.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, $15 upgrade (free for purchases after 15 January 2012), free update, 8.5 MB)

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

HI there. The other day on Mac Break Weekly, Leo was doing an add for Smile software regarding Textexpander. He mentioned that TidBits had made some great snippets that can be shared . Is this true? If so how can I get some Thanks.

I suspect Leo was talking about the TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary, which is available within TextExpander as a predefined group. Choose File > Add Predefined Group... and select it.

Here's where that dictionary comes from.
