Product Announcements – Ergonis Software of Perg, Austria has released Typinator 8.1, an improved version of their highly acclaimed text expander. Just about a month after the release of the major new version 8.0 of Typinator, Ergonis did more work on their widely used text expander, refining the newly introduced features adding support for the built-in Accessibility Keyboard of macOS.
Typinator 8 introduced a new statistics mode, where you can see the usage counts for abbreviations and sets, and how long ago an abbreviation has been used most recently. You can also sort your snippets by these values, to see which abbreviations you are using frequently and which ones you may have forgotten about.
Another great new feature of Typinator 8 are Magic Keys. You can now use the modifier keys Shift, Control, Option, and Command in abbreviations as if they were real characters. This allows you to use them as special trigger characters and offers a simple way to avoid conflicts in abbreviations.
A very slick user interface enhancement is the new “mini menu bar” right above the expansion field, where you can find all markers and editing functions in one central place. A nice side effect of this improvement is that the expansion field is now wider and you have more space to enter your expansions.
Typinator 8.1 contains a number of fixes and improvements that make Typinator 8 run smoother. It furthermore now works with text entered via the built-in Accessibility Keyboard. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download and try the new version.
Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that boosts your productivity by automating the process of inserting frequently used text and auto-correcting typing errors. Across all applications, it detects specific sequences of typed characters and automatically replaces them with text snippets, graphics, URLs, dates and special characters.
