TextExpander Comments

TextExpander has been a PITA for me

Negative Comment by Awfki
about TextExpander Jan 2014

It works when it feels like and apparently Chrome frequently requests some sort of secure mode that locks TextExpander out until you quit Chrome.

In general I've just a less than satisfactory experience with it. Your mileage may vary.


Such a Time Saver!

I use this for common typo correction, different email signatures, template'ed emails, common strings of text I type...on and on and on. Highly recommended.
