TextExpander 1.2.4

A better way to write repetitive text without typing

TextExpander is a lightweight and user-friendly piece of software meant to offer you an easy means of completing writing assignments which entail a large amount of repetitive phrases, words or bits of text, enabling you to insert them in your window through a keyboard shortcut of your own making.

The application will automatically run minimized in the notification area, letting you access it whenever you need to add new text snippets, but otherwise not interfering with your regular activities.

By right-clicking TextExpander's icon, you can 'Open' the main window of the program and begin creating groups, then inputting various text snippets.

To get started, you will first need to create the entries, or snippets containing the text you use most often, which can be anything from a word, to a sentence or a lengthier piece of text.

You can then enter the 'Abbreviation' by means of which you will be able to insert the snippet in the file or window you are working in. Moreover, this can be 'Case Sensitive', 'Case Insensitive' or 'Automatic', depending on your individual requirements.

The text comprised by your snippet can be edited in terms of fonts, alignment, bullets, styles (underline, italics, bold), and you can even add hyperlinks. Additionally, TextExpander allows you to input various 'Macros', specifically 'Date' (day, month, year), 'Time' (hour, minute, second), 'Key' (Enter, Tab, Esc) or 'Form' (Single Line Input, Multi Line Input, Drop Down, Checkbox).

An important feature of this application is the fact that it can work with TextExpander created for Mac operating systems, enabling you to easily import files from it into your Windows version of the utility, without encountering any issues.
