About This Blog

I used to publish software updates here, but those days are long gone, so this place is effectively on hiatus.


Some of you may have already read about it, and here's my confirmation: SmileOnMyMac has acquired Textpander (press release).

An updated version, renamed "TextExpander", will be available shortly. TextExpander will also include several new, unique features that yours truly had been working on for a while. And it will, of course, be free for users who have donated for the original Textpander.

The current version of Textpander will be available for download until TextExpander's initial release.

Butler 4.0b30 supports dialing phone numbers (via AppleScript), can do things when starting up/quitting, plus some minor improvements. This might be the last beta version of Butler 4.0…

Service Scrubber 1.1.1 works with StickyBrain's quite unusual way of specifying its services now. Also fixes some cosmetical issues.

Textpander 1.2.2 and Witch 1.0.2 are universal binaries, so both of them can run on the new Intel macs now.

Textpander 1.2.1

December 9, 2005

Textpander 1.2.1 lets you create snippets by pasting to the snippets list. Copying from the snippets list populates your clipboard with a list of the selected snippets and their respective abbreviations. Paste that into a text file and apply your formatting to create a snippets cheat sheet.

Also fixes an issue with iTerm.

As mentioned before, Butler 4.0b26 was a huge step forward. Making such a huge step almost always causes a few regressions. So here's Butler 4.0b27, fixing most of these.

Textpander 1.2 fixes a nasty bug that could cause quite different kinds of symptoms. And you can have the current pasteboard inserted in your snippets on expansion.

Butler 4.0b26 is the largest step in Butler's development since the transition from Another Launcher to Butler. In addition to a restructured interface, the internal data structure of Butler has been completely rewritten. This makes Butler work more efficiently; and it makes updating Butler easier for me ;-)

Textpander 1.1 includes some features that were requested by users. Most importantly, you now have the choice between keeping or abandoning delimiter characters that trigger an expansion.

Introducing Textpander

August 22, 2005

Textpander is a utility that helps you type more efficiently and more accurately. Textpander listens to what you type and inserts predefined text snippets on the fly whenever you enter their corresponding abbreviations.
