SmileOnMyMac has released TextExpander 2.6, 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 2.6 adds new expansion options. Abbreviations can now be set to expand when preceded by any character, including or excluding letters or numbers. Prior to this update, abbreviations would be expanded only when preceded by a space. The new expansion options allow expansions to occur after common punctuation such as parentheses and slashes. The expansion options are set by snippet group.

TextExpander 2.6 features new customization options as well. Users can
now specify the Clipboard restore delay and the words-per-minute (wpm)
rate that is used to calculate how much time is saved by using
TextExpander.

What's new in TextExpander 2.6:
- Per-group expansion options for greater flexibility:
-- Expand after whitespace (default)
-- Expand after anything but letters & numbers
-- Expand after any character
- Setting for clipboard restore delay
- WPM (words per minute) setting for more accurate statistics

snippets
