Typinator 1.6 — New "Whole Word" Option Boosts Productivity of the Popular Typing Automation Tool


Hagenberg, Austria: December 12, 2006 — Ergonis Software® today released Typinator™ 1.6, which introduces a new "Whole Word" option for auto-correcting typos, expanding text and inserting graphics across any Mac OS X application. With this release, Typinator is now also available in French.

While some word processor applications provide auto-correction capabilities, most Mac users work across many applications. They need a consistent capability to auto-correct and expand text. Without these capabilities, not only is productivity compromised, quality suffers as errors eventually creep into repetitively entered information.

Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that works across all applications to detect specific sequences of typed characters and automatically replace them with text, graphics, URLs, dates and special characters. With just a couple of keystrokes, one can insert a standard contract clause into a document, add a signature graphic to an email or append a block of code to a program. Users can also easily define commonly misspelled words so that Typinator automatically corrects them.

Typinator's new "Whole Word" option allows users to specify that Typinator should replace a specific text string only when it stands alone as a whole word. With the "Whole Word" option, Typinator can detect and correct misspellings more efficiently than ever. The "Whole Word" option is almost always appropriate when defining short abbreviations to be expanded into longer text. Without the "Whole Word" option, users waste too much time fixing unintended replacements.

Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software, stated, "Everyone, from entry-level office workers to highly technical specialists, needs increased cross-application productivity through consistent auto-correction and typing automation capabilities. The new "Whole Word" option makes it even easier to define exactly how text replacements should occur, and we are proud that we could add this new capability without compromising Typinator's ease-of-use."
