Smile updates TextExpander to improve searching, groups user interface
Productivity application developer, Smile, has released an update to its typing shortcut tool. TextExpander allows users to insert standard greetings, text and signatures by using abbreviations. TextExpander v4.3.0 improves search performance and allows the expansion or collapse of all groups in the TextExpander window. The issue of non-PNG image links that have previously disappeared has been resolved. Other new components to the update include snippet creation hotkeys support in applications where expansion is disabled, improves cursor positioning accuracy, and various fixes. Pricing for individuals users starts at $35, and requires OS X 10.7 or later.
