TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary for TextExpander and TypeIt4Me

by Adam C. Engst

Ah, the wonders of the public domain! After Ergonis Software created a version of our public domain TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary for Typinator 2.0 (see "TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary Enhances Typinator [1]," 2007-08-27), Greg Scown of SmileOnMyMac contacted me to verify that it was indeed in the public domain so they could distribute it for TextExpander [2]. I told him it was, and less than a week later, SmileOnMyMac posted a version of the dictionary for TextExpander [3]. And, since Riccardo Ettore's TypeIt4Me [4] and TextExpander can import each other's files, TypeIt4Me users can also download and use the TextExpander version (for more about TypeIt4Me, see "TypeIt4Me Returns Again, Again [5]," 2006-08-07). Thanks to the SmileOnMyMac folks for making this happen, and thanks to Micah Alpern for much of the original word list.
