TextExpander 6.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Smile has released TextExpander 6.1 [1], adding the capability to use fill-in snippets with Appleā€™s Dictation. The text-expansion utility also improves the Snippet Editor by enhancing drag-and-drop support, lets users preview a snippet before expansion with the new Preview button, speeding up the load time, and restoring Bold and Italic menu commands. The update also eliminates a fatal save error when the server invalidates a stored token, correctly handles HTML tags in fill-in defaults, and fixes localizations of Include in Inline Search. TextExpander 6.1 is available via a monthly or annual subscription, but Smile continues to offer TextExpander 5 as a standalone app for $44.95 (TidBITS members [2] receive a 20 percent discount only on the purchase of version 5). ($40 annual subscription, $20 upgrade subscription, free update from version 6, 6.5 MB, release notes [3], 10.10+)
