Ergonis has released Typinator 7.3, adding the capability to import text substitution files exported from System Preferences and providing full compatibility with macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Packed with more than 40 improvements and bug fixes, the update also improves handling of text substitutions and spell checking when editing expansions, brings the capability to add and edit links in formatted text expansions, works around a cursor positioning issue in Microsoft Outlook 2016, decodes HTML expansions nested in formatted or plain text expansions, and fixes a bug where keystrokes did not work in certain situations in Typinator’s Open/Save dialogs. A new expansion technique avoids dropped keystrokes in certain borderline cases, resulting in slightly faster expansions, and internal optimizations speed up background activities and reduce memory allocation.
