Typinator 3.0 now dockless – almost invisible, but always ready for use
Hagenberg, Austria: April 14, 2008 – Ergonis Software today announced the
release of Typinator 3.0, the latest version of its highly acclaimed tool
for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos system- wide across all Mac
OS X applications.
With the new version, Typinator is no longer a regular application visible
in the dock and the application switcher, but rather a dockless
background-only application that is acting unobtrusively in the background.
A small icon in the menu bar gives quick access to Typinator’s main window.
A new search feature lets you instantly view only snippets that contain a
specified search string. Particularly users with many snippets will love
this feature. Typinator 3.0 also adds a number of further improvements.

“When we initially designed Typinator, we decided to make it a regular
application, not a System Preference Pane, since this gives a wider scope
for a comfortable user interface, and it seems that our customers like the
resulting flexibility. However, it turned out that many users do not want
to see Typinator as a regular application visible in the dock and the
application switcher,” said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of
Ergonis Software. “I am therefore more than happy to announce that
Typinator 3.0 offers the best of both worlds. Typinator is now an invisible
background application that is visible only in form of a menu status item.
However, when you need to access Typinator’s functionality, it instantly
opens up a full-fledged application window with no limitations in size,
functionality, and comfort”.
Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that works across
all applications to detect specific sequences of typed characters and
automatically replace them with text snippets, graphics, URLs, dates and
For business users, Typinator leads to a layer of operational consistency
and productivity across heterogeneous applications. A standard customer
service response, a signature image on an email, a clause in a contract —
each of these can be inserted in any application with just a couple of
keystrokes. For technical users, Typinator automates typing of code and the
implementation of documentation standards.
