Typinator 7.0 – Speedy and reliable text expansion solution.

Typinator 7.0

Typinator turbo-charges your typing productivity.

Type a little. Typinator does the rest.
We’ve all faced projects that require repetitive typing tasks. With Typinator, you can store commonly used text and images in quick keywords and abbreviations. From email templates to code snippets to website URLs, there’s no easier way to recreate repetitive text at a moment’s notice.

Workflow-Friendly Features
  • Uncomplicated configuration. Quickly and easily create abbreviations and assign replacement text and pictures.
  • Simplified migration. If you already use TextExpander, TypeIt4Me, or a similar app, you can migrate to the highly praised Typinator using simple drag-and-drop importation methods.
  • Conversion options. Instantly convert currency values, measurement units and more.
  • Extensive app compatibility. Your text expansions function in all of your OS X and macOS apps with lightning-fast precision.

What’s New

Version 7.0:

  • Powerful interactive forms with pop-up fields, checkboxes, combo boxes, multi-line text fields, headings and explanations.
  • Assistants for easier creation and editing of complex markers (including those for interactive forms).
  • Subscriptions: It is now possible to add sets from remote sources that are updated automatically when there is a new version of the original set.
  • Publishing: Sets can be exported in "publication format", so other Typinator users can subscribe to these sets.
  • Automatic publishing: Sets can be marked as "automatically published", so that they are automatically re-exported after each modification.
  • Inline scripts (AppleScript, JavaScript, Shell scripts, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Swift) with script source embedded in the expansion.
  • Context menu for items in the set and abbreviation lists.
  • Improved import from TextExpander, including area fields, pop-ups and optional parts.
  • Import of aText snippets (from the "atext" file format created by aText's File/Save command).
  • New technique for keystroke markers can simulate arbitrary key combinations.
  • Inserting a cursor position marker {^} now removes already existing cursor position markers.
  • Keystroke markers can have an optional repetition.
  • Separate Font and Text menus for formatted text expansions.
  • When switching back and forth among sets, Typinator now restores the previous selection and scrolling position.
  • Expansion templates: Plain and rich text files in the Includes folder are now treated as "templates" if their file names start with a $ sign or they are located in a subfolder whose name starts with $; selecting such items from the {…} inserts the contents of the files in the expansion instead of markers that include the file when the expansion takes place.
  • Briefly pressing the command key clears Typinator's memory of recently typed text. This can be used to suppress "whole word" abbreviations by pressing the command key after the word.
  • Updated versions of the predefined AutoCorrection sets.
  • The AutoCorrection sets are now provided as subscribed sets, so they are automatically updated from now on.
  • The list of predefined sets now contains a new "Product Names" set with more than 100 popular product names, correctly capitalized (such as "macOS" or "JavaScript").
  • New built-in Choose function for choosing one of multiple predefined text fragments by index, by pattern or randomly.
  • The built-in functions Replace, Regex, Extract, Case and List now accept the escape sequences n, r, and t for newline, return, and tab characters.
  • Typinator's Help menu now contains a link to the "Using Typinator" page on our web site.
  • Internal cleanup reduces memory requirements.
  • Special case for "backspace before expansion" is no longer needed (is now covered by the more general keystroke markers).
  • Improved handling of the default keys (return and enter) in interactive forms.
  • Reorganized {…} menu for inserting markers.
  • Improved reliability of clipboard-based expansions for certain target applications.
  • Long labels in input forms are now truncated to a reasonable length.
  • The set-specific menu commands in the menu bar menu are now available only when the Typinator window is open and the affected set is visible.
  • Improved processing of international decimal and thousands separators in calculations.
  • Improved handling of parameter separators in built-in functions for cases where input values contain separators.
  • Revised evaluation order of parameters in certain built-in functions (such as Case and Index) allows dynamic selection of scripts based on variables and input values.
  • Works around an occasional problem where the last character of an abbreviation was entered in the first field of an input form.
  • Fixes a problem with leftover abbreviation characters in certain text fields.
  • Works around a timing issue that caused the contents of the clipboard to get inserted instead of the expansion in InDesign.
  • Fixes a problem where Undo in the expansion text field did not work correctly after inserting certain markers.
  • Fixes a problem that caused HTML expansions to appear without syntax coloring in rare cases.
  • Fixes a cosmetic issue that caused incorrect display of template strings in the abbreviation field.
  • Typinator correctly disables itself in the RealVNC VNC Viewer.
  • Fixes a problem where certain user interface elements overlapped each other.
  • Works around an expansion problem in Visual Studio Code, where the abbreviation was not deleted in certain cases.
  • Fixes a crash that could occur in certain situations immediately after internal housekeeping.
  • Fixes an error where non-expanding line breaks were not removed from nested abbreviations.
  • Works around a conflict with auto-completion in Mail's address field, which could result in incomplete deletion of typed abbreviations.
  • Works around an expansion problem in Evernote on macOS versions before Sierra.
  • Fixes a problem with incorrect expansions when regular expressions matched characters outside the basic multilingual plane of Unicode.
