TextExpander 4.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

Smile has released TextExpander 4.0.4 with added support for cut, copy, and paste for items in the snippet list. The update also adds a popover to help resolve conflicts with snippet abbreviations, draws duplicate snippets in blue (versus orange for conflicts), adds expand abbreviation '<abbreviation>' syntax to the AppleScript expand command, restores support for the %j day-of-year macro, and fixes a number of other minor bugs. Be sure to download the latest version from the company’s Web site, as this update fixes a problem that prevents the in-app update mechanism from working properly. ($34.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, $15 upgrade (free for purchases after 15 January 2012), free update, 8.9 MB, release notes)
