Typinator 5.7

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis has released Typinator 5.7, enhancing the way the text-expansion utility pulls together variable parts of expansions with optional default values. If a default value is present, the input field contains the specified string rather than what was entered the last time the expansion was used. The update also fixes a problem where some input fields weren’t recognized if they immediately followed another marker; works around issues in IntelliJ, PhpStorm, WebStorm, and PyCharm that inserted the current clipboard when attempting multi-line expansions; fixes a bug that created different types of line breaks in some applications; and provides a workaround to a problem with certain multi-line expansions in Microsoft Word. (€24.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.5 MB, release notes)
