Typinator 6.5 handles smart substitutions even smarter

Perg, Austria: March 19, 2015 - Ergonis Software today announced the release of Typinator 6.5, a new version of their popular text expander. The new version adds a helpful new feature that lets you define the way how the system-wide "smart substitutions" settings for quotes, dashes, etc. are handled within Typinator.

Mac OS X offers a feature called "smart substitutions" that allows some applications, such as Mail, Safari, TextEdit, Messages, and more to automatically insert smart quotes, smart links, and smart dashes as you type.

Until now, text entry in Typinator's expansion field applied the system-wide default settings for smart substitutions, as specified in System Preferences. When smart quotes were enabled in System Preferences, typing a regular quote character (") created smart quotes (such as “” in English). This led to problems when an expansion with smart quotes was used in contexts where only straight quotes were allowed, such as in programming and in HTML text. Starting with Typinator 6.5, these smart substitutions are turned off by default in the expansion field. You can enable them by right-clicking or ctrl-clicking in the expansion field and selecting the desired options in the "Substitutions" submenu. Typinator remembers your selection permanently, separately for plain text, formatted text, and HTML expansions.

French speaking Typinator users will love to hear that Typinator now also accepts French quoting style (with double angle quotation marks and non-breaking spaces) in the marker for nested abbreviations.

Typinator 6.5 also works around a crash when expanding text in Yosemite's sharing window with the "quick expansion" option enabled. It further improves compatibility with OS X Yosemite and third-party applications. Visit Ergonis Software's website to view the full list of changes and to download a trial copy.

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.

Typinator 6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10). The usage of regular expressions requires Mac OS X 10.7 or newer.
