SmileOnMyMac Releases TextExpander 2.5.1

Posted January 28, 2009 at 7:16am by iClarified
SmileOnMyMac has released TextExpander 2.5.1, an update to its customizable typing shortcut tool for Mac OS X. With TextExpander, users can define abbreviations for
frequently-used text strings and images, also known as snippets. When an abbreviation is typed, it expands automatically to the full snippet.

TextExpander 2.5.1 features some improvements for using AppleScripts as snippets. The results of an AppleScript are now pasted in plain text to adopt current formatting where they are pasted. Nested Applescript snippets now function properly.

The update also fixes hanging problems when TextExpander is used with PopChar X from Ergonis.

A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at The price is $29.95.
A Family Pack license is available for $44.95, which covers up to five computers in one household. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required. TextExpander 2.5.1 is a free update for registered users of TextExpander 1.x and 2.x.
