Help! TextExpander stopped expanding my snippets! What happened? (Mac, Win, Chrome)

Mac / Windows

Please check that Expand abbreviations is checked in TextExpander’s Expansion preferences.

Please click the TextExpander menu bar item and ensure that the second item reads Disable Expansion rather than Enable Expansion. If it reads Enable Expansion, please choose Enable Expansion:

If the TextExpander menu bar item notes something about secure input, please review this.


Click on the TextExpander icon in the upper right of your Chrome browser and choose “Options”.  Ensure that there is a checkmark next to “Expand Abbreviations”.
Tip: Shift-reload the page by pressing the shift key and clicking reload.

If none of that helps, please see if you able to expand snippets by choosing them from the TextExpander menu bar and contact support with the details.
