Perg, Austria: December 17, 2014 - Ergonis Software today announced the release of Typinator 6.3, a new version of their popular text expander.

Finding recent expansions can be very helpful if you realize an unexpected expansion while typing and you don't know which abbreviation triggered this expansion. Now you can enter "last" in the find field, and Typinator will show the abbreviation that triggered that latest expansion. Typinator also accepts "recent" and "latest" as the keywords for this search function (in German "letzte", "letztes", "letzte"; in French "dernier", "derniers" and "récent").
