Typinator 3.0 released
Ergonis has released v3.0 of Typinator, its typing aid for Mac OS X. The software works within all Mac applications, and is used to quickly insert phrases or pictures into a document based on abbreviations, and/or correct spelling mistakes in English, French or German. The latest version marks a fundamental shift in how the software operates; it is now a "dockless" program, running only in the background, which means it does not take up space in the Dock or force users to skip it under the app switcher.
Typinator now also incorporates a new search feature, which lets users more quickly sort through text snippets. Other changes include automatic version checking, custom set assignments for X11, and a variety of fixes including an InDesign crash and unnecessary operation within Parallels Desktop. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and costs a minimum of $32.
