Smile has released TextExpander 6.1.7, improving connection reliability for syncing snippets and banishing an unwanted leading line break that occurred when expanding some formatted snippets. The text-expansion utility also retains animation of GIFs after adding via drag-and-drop, and it lets you add delimiter macros to script snippets. TextExpander 6 is available via a monthly or annual subscription, and Smile continues to offer TextExpander 5 as a standalone app for $44.95 (TidBITS members receive a 20 percent discount only on the purchase of version 5). ($40 annual subscription, 6.4 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
