Preparing for the upcoming release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Smile has released TextExpander 4.1 with new Security & Privacy settings as well as a lengthy laundry list of improvements and fixes. The typing shortcut utility gains an Emoji snippet group, enables you to type Command-Return to complete a fill-in window, improves the performance of snippets containing multiple embedded images, adds capitalization correction in applications such as Mellel, sets the CPU to idle 30 seconds after an expansion or capitalization correction, and gives you the option to convert existing snippets when changing the default snippet type.

Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
