Typinator 6.1 text expansion software adds over 50 improvements
Typinator has released a new version of its text expansion software, which includes over 50 new features and improvements. The software automates the process of inserting frequently-used text and auto-correcting typing errors. Typinator now offers users the ability to create expansions based on regular expressions. Double capitals correction and auto-capitalizing sentences are new technical foundation additions, and a new marker for suppressing current replacement can be used to defining exceptions of other rules. Text lines can now be sorted, and the update includes a new option to insert a delay in the middle of an expansion.
The upgraded Typinator is free for anyone who owns a license for Typinator 6. For new users, Typinator can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website starting at $25.
