SmileOnMyMac (http://www.smileonmymac.com) has updated TextExpander, a Mac OS X utility that lets users define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings and images, to version 3.0.1. The new version improves the behavior of the new "fill-in"
A fill-in snippet can have multiple blank fields in the snippet content that prompt for additional information to be entered manually in a window that opens when an abbreviation is typed. The fill-in window now supports Cut, Copy, Paste, and Select All keyboard equivalents. Fill-in snippets can now incorporate automatic date snippets.
The regular cost is US$34.95 for a single user license or $44.95 for a five-pack family license. A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at the SmileOnMyMac web site. Upgrades to TextExpander 3.0.1 from earlier versions costs $15. Version 3.0.1 is a free update for registered users of version 3.0.
