Set Hotkeys in TextExpander

Don’t just save keystrokes, save mouse clicks when using TextExpander by setting up customizable keyboard shortcuts, or hotkeys, for functions like Enable/Disable TextExpander, Search Snippets, and more. To set your hotkey combinations:

  1. Open TextExpander > Preferences > Hotkeys.
  2. Press the Click to Set Hotkey button next to function you want.
  3. Press the keys of your preferred hotkey combination when prompted.

You recently mentioned the AppleCD 300 as a holiday gift. If you have a Mac that takes the internal AppleCD 300i, which is about $100 to $150 less than the external version, you may be out of luck for the near future. A project manager I know at Apple told me that the drives are ridiculously back ordered; the Apple Store doesn't have them; and he had to arrange an internal trade to get one (for money even) for a relative. My employer ordered one from Computer City's local outlet in September, and it took two months to arrive because of the backlog. The best advice my Apple contact offered is that if you buy a new Macintosh, don't wait for a separate CD-ROM, because it could be a long wait. Instead, buy a configuration that includes the CD-ROM, because Apple has reserved that supply.

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>
