TextExpander tool released
SmileOnMyMac has released a free autocorrection snippet file for use with TextExpander, the customizable typing timesaver tool. TextExpander lets users define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings and images. The autocorrection file contains over 100 common typos and misspelled words. An incorrect spelling functions as a trigger, and is replaced with the correction when typed. TextExpander features the ability to insert standard greetings, text, and signatures including formatted text and pictures as well as can save keystrokes by typing simple abbreviations to get long snippets. In addition, users can insert the current date and time in any format you prefer, type special characters without launching the special characters palette, position the cursor wherever you want in your expanded snippet, and more. It is available in English, German, French, Japanese and Italian for $30 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
