Smile has issued TextExpander 6.5.4, putting a stop to unnecessarily bolding text pasted into the snippet editor from Google Docs (a welcome fix for this user). The release also restores localization of the snippet editor, immediately updates an expansion when you change case sensitivity, and fixes the behavior of Adapt Snippet to Case of Abbreviation when a group prefix is used. ($40 annual subscription, 20.9 MB, release notes, macOS 10.12+)
I’m subscribed to the TidBITS autocorrect list for TextExpander, and had a heck of a time typing “controlling” with it enabled - it kept triggering the correction for “controll” before I could type the “-ing” …how do I get in touch with the person on the team to update the file so that a space is required to trigger that correction?
That behavior is controlled by an option in TextExpander’s Expansion settings: you can select whether TE should immmediately expand the snippets while you type, or only after you enter a delimiter character, such as punctuation or space.
Selecting either of the “at delimiter” options should fix that issue for you.
