Smile has released TextExpander 4.2 with a number of fixes and improvements for the typing shortcut utility. The update works around an issue in OS X 10.9 Mavericks that introduced smart quotes when TextExpander was set for straight quotes, allows embedding snippets within embedded script snippets, repairs snippets with mismatched plain/formatted content, addresses an issue with some Web browser “unibars” that wouldn’t remove the snippet abbreviation, improves expansion capabilities in Google Documents within Safari, and initially displays apps that are currently running when choosing an application-specific expansion.

Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling
In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."
