MacVoices #19098: Jeff Gamet Demonstrates The New Features of TextExpander

Jeff Gamet brings us up to date on the latest enhancements to the powerful productivity tool, TextExpander from Smile. Version 6.5 replaces the previous text-based snipped creation with new visual blocks among other features and bug fixes. Jeff not only shows us what that means, and how much easier it is to understand snippets, but also gives us demonstrations of just how easy items like date math, pop-ups, and nested snippets are to create and use. Find out why you should be using TextExpander, and if you already are, how you can get more out of it.
