Using TextExpander for Autocorrection
Add common typos to your Snippet library
If you find yourself consistently misspelling certain words, you can add them to your TextExpander Snippet library to be corrected automatically. We suggest you create a new Snippet Group called “Typos”, or something similar, in which to store your autocorrections Snippets.
Example: If you always type “recieve” instead of “receive”, create a new snippet with “receive” as the content and “recieve” as the abbreviation. When you type the misspelled word, TextExpander replaces it with the word spelled correctly.
Note: For best results when using auto-correction, TextExpander should be set to expand “immediately when typed” instead of “at delimiter”. (See Expansion Settings)
Use an auto-corrections Snippet Group
TextExpander offers two ready-made auto-correction Snippet Groups for commonly-misspelled words in English, as well as one in French, and one in German. To add these Snippet Groups to your snippet library, open our Public Groups page and click Subscribe next to the Autocorrect group you want to add.
