What happens to the delimiter after the abbreviation is expanded? (Mac, Win, Chrome)

Mac/Windows

In Preferences > Expansion, the menu “Expand abbreviations:” has two choices for delimiter behavior:

  • at delimiter (keep delimiter)
  • at delimiter (abandon delimiter)

Chrome

Click on the TextExpander icon, choose “Options” and then choose:

  • at delimiter (keep delimiter)
  • at delimiter (abandon delimiter)

Version 6.5/2.0/1.0 or higher:

To override this setting for a specific snippet, choose the Cursor Macro on the Editing bar to add a “Keep delimiter” specifier or an “Abandon delimiter” specifier to the end of your snippet.

Version 6.2.8/1.0:

To override this setting for a specific snippet, add a “Keep delimiter” specifier (“%+”, without the surrounding quotation marks) or an “Abandon delimiter” specifier (“%-“) to the very end of your snippet.
