Typinator 7.0

Ergonis has released Typinator 7.0, a major upgrade for the text-expansion tool that enables you to create interactive forms with pop-up fields, checkboxes, combo boxes, and more. The new release also introduces Publish & Subscribe, enabling you to share automatically updated abbreviation sets with other Typinator users. Typinator 7.0 also reduces memory requirements, adds a new technique for keystroke markers that can simulate arbitrary key combinations, updates the predefined AutoCorrection sets (which are now provided as subscription sets so they’re automatically updated), improves the reliability of clipboard-based expansions for certain target applications, and improves import from TextExpander. (€24.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, €12.49 upgrade, free update for purchases after 1 January 2016, 8.5 MB, release notes, 10.6.8+)
