SmileOnMyMac Releases TextExpander 2.2

SmileOnMyMac has released TextExpander 2.2, an update to its customizable typing shortcut tool for Mac OS X. With TextExpander, users can define abbreviations for
frequently-used text strings and images, also known as snippets. When an abbreviation is typed, it expands automatically to the full snippet.

This update adds a predefined snippet group with common CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) code. It limits "Adapt to Case" to lowercase snippets and to abbreviations with two or more characters. A conflict with MacSpeech Dictate has also been resolved.

A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at The price is $29.95. A Family Pack license is available for $44.95, which covers up to five computers in one household. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required. TextExpander 2.2 is a free update for registered users of TextExpander 1.x and 2.x.
