Edit Last Expanded Snippet in TextExpander

Sometimes you expand a snippet and realize you need to make some changes. Instead of opening TextExpander and tracking down the snippet, use the Edit Last Expanded Snippet hotkey. Once you press your hotkey combination, a window opens to let you edit and save your the last snippet you expanded.

Take the time to set your Edit Last Expanded Snippet hotkey in TextExpander's preferences, and you'll save time in the long run!

BBEdit 10.5.8 and TextWrangler 4.5.6

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.8 and TextWrangler 4.5.6 with a healthy list of shared fixes for customer-submitted issues. Of particular joy for TidBITS staff, the two text editors fix several bugs that erroneously changed a document’s line endings to “Classic Mac (CR)” (identified and reported by Adam Engst and Matt Neuburg). The two updates also fix a bug where bzip2-compressed files were not read correctly, a couple of issues associated with FTP logging, and a bug in the Fortran function scanner. BBEdit 10.5.8 also modifies the way unsaved or untitled documents use line breaks to improve compatibility when previewed using an external helper that isn’t a Web browser (such as Marked, the Markdown previewer). ($49.99 for BBEdit, free update, 12.9 MB, release notes; free for TextWrangler, 9.8 MB, release notes)

Someone needs to do a "history of BBEdit" article. IMHO, this single piece of software is s important as any other for mac OS's current role as the web developer's platform of choice.
