Squashing a number of niggling issues, Smile has released TextExpander 4.2.1 with a smattering of small fixes, including resolution for one problem that caused excessive CPU use on some systems after several expansions and another that caused version 4.2 to crash on certain systems after an expansion. The update also pre-fills the URL field if Add Group from URL is selected with a URL on the pasteboard, enables you to set script snippet timeout via AppleScript, fixes a crash related to snippet content computation exceeding the 5 second limit, and restores date macro evaluation to snippets embedded within script snippets.
