TypeIt4Me goes Universal
A Mac developer has released TypeIt4Me 3.0, allowing users to insert full text or picture clippings into documents by typing pre-defined abbreviations. The update runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and offers a more intuitive interface. The software includes styled or "rich text" clippings, the ability to expand abbreviations without a delimiter or trigger, and the ability to associate specific applications with particular abbreviations. Users can embed or nest clippings within clippings, view or print clippings in a formatted list, and import "snippets" from TextExpander files or "abbreviations" from Typinator files. Additionally, registered users of TypeIt4Me can request a VBA script allowing them to convert their Microsoft Word "Autocorrect" entries to the TypeIt4Me format. TypeIt4Me 3.0 is priced at $30, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
