TextExpander Comments

TextExpander has been a PITA for me

about TextExpander · ·

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.

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.
