15 years ago, the small team of developers at Smile acquired the core product we now know and love called TextExpander. In those 15 years, we’ve been through many iterations and changes to the product, and our small team has expanded to almost 40 team members. We’ve been hard at work growing TextExpander, and today we’re excited to announce the latest version – TextExpander 7.0.
The latest update brings a fresh, new experience that makes TextExpander easier to navigate for anyone and everyone, all wrapped up in a whole new streamlined look and feel.
In this version, you’ll discover a new interface that’s easier to use, more responsive, and offers a few functional improvements to make TextExpander a more interactive and engaging product.
Check out what’s new in TextExpander 7.0:
Enhanced Snippet Suggestions make it even easier to notice and create Snippets from frequently-typed words and phrases. This means creating a new Snippet takes just a few clicks.
Snippet Conflict Management
A refresh to TextExpander’s conflict management means the Snippet you want to expand will be the one that expands. The app now shows you how to resolve conflicts with your Snippet abbreviations in a clear, easier-to-use interface.
We know how important it is to find the right Snippet when you need it—which is why TextExpander 7 also features an upgraded search feature to help you find the right Snippet, faster.
You can now view search results by group, and adjust how your search results are sorted and presented to quickly find what you need.
We’ve listened to your feedback and have made changes to help create an experience that’s more accessible to all people and users of every ability. The latest update makes TextExpander more accessible to all users by improving the app layout and design for screen reader compatibility.
(We of course recognize that accessibility should be an ongoing process, which is why our team always welcomes feedback for further improvements).
Welcome to the new TextExpander Learning Center. For those of you familiar with our previous knowledge base it looks shiny and new, but more importantly, it is the new one-stop shop for learning everything you want and need to know about using TextExpander.
