TextExpander 6.0.5

Smile has released TextExpander 6.0.5 with an improved Snippet Editor that offers better image import and a fix for an issue where the fill-in editor could dismiss slowly. The update to the text-expansion utility also restores Print Group and Print All Groups, retains uncommitted content changes when creating a new snippet, disables Add Group from File when signed out, and adds support for the URL bar in Google Chrome version 50.

TextExpander 6 has shifted to a subscription model (see “Smile Brings Back Standalone TextExpander, Reduces Subscription Price ,” 13 April 2016) that costs $40 for an annual subscription to the single-user Life Hacker plan. If you have a license for any previous version of TextExpander, you’ll receive a 50 percent lifetime discount, resulting in a subscription price of $20 per year for as long as you renew the subscription. 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, $20 upgrade subscription, free update from version 6, 7.3 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
