Ergonis has released Typinator 6.6 with a number of improvements to the text expansion tool, which is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its release. The update no longer clears the search field when closing the Typinator window, improves how the app checks for updates, reduces memory requirements when idle, works around a problem with expansions in certain Save As dialog windows, improves detection of situations that require special expansion techniques, and now works with Pinyin input methods for Chinese. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Ergonis is offering a 25 percent discount on new purchases before 15 July 2015 (which covers Typinator as well as PopChar and KeyCue). (€24.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 7.0 MB, release notes, 10.6.8+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
