Speed up FileMaker 12 development with Typinator function snippets


Hagenberg, Austria: February 13, 2013 - Ergonis Software today announced the immediate availability of a new set of abbreviations for functions in FileMaker 12, which can be used with Typinator, its highly acclaimed text expander.

The new set contains over 370 snippets that cover all FileMaker 12 functions. With these snippets installed, FileMaker developers realize an unprecedented increase of productivity. Function names together with their parameters can now be inserted ultra-fast by typing a short abbreviation instead of tediously searching for them via pop-up menus and long lists. For users of earlier FileMaker versions, a set for FileMaker 9 is available as well.

"Being a FileMaker developer myself, I always found it cumbersome to manually type the long function names into calculation fields. I often make typos when I type long function names, and I usually don't remember the correct order of the parameters. On the other hand, I hate to navigate through the pop-up menu and then have to choose the required function from the long list of functions," said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. "With the new predefined FileMaker 12 functions set in Typinator, I just have to type an easy-to-remember abbreviation, and Typinator will expand this abbreviation to the full function call including the parameter list. This is particularly useful for all Get functions, where you normally have to switch to the proper category before you can select the desired function from the list. And with Typinator's powerful Quick Search feature, you don't even need to remember abbreviations. Just type - for example - "layout" into the Quick Search field, to instantly find all layout-related functions."

The extra sets can be downloaded free of charge from www.ergonis.com/downloads/extras/ and installed into Typinator with just a double-click.

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.

Availability and Ordering

The FileMaker functions set mentioned in this release is not functional as a stand-alone tool, but requires a licensed version of Typinator 4.0 or newer. Typinator requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

Typinator can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. See the company's web site for information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers.

Instead of purchasing Typinator by itself, customers can get the Ergonis Productivity Bundle, which also contains two of the company's other productivity tools, PopChar X and KeyCue.
