Take Control of TextExpander

Book Description

Join expert Mac writer Michael E. Cohen as he helps you enjoy the power of TextExpander 3, the award-winning text expansion utility from Smile. If you're a TextExpander newbie, you'll learn how to create "snippets" of text (like your address) that you can insert into any text by typing a short abbreviation (for example, addd).

Once you're comfortable with TextExpander's core controls and options, it's time to learn the more sophisticated options for inserting a snippet. You'll also discover how to add optional snippet groups created by Smile and others, create and share your own groups, move groups between Macs using MobileMe or Dropbox, and get the basics on integrating TextExpander with AppleScript and even with the command line.

The ebook also explain how to share your snippets with your iOS devices and access them using Smile's TextExpander touch app.
