Ergonis Software (http://www.ergonis.com) has released Typinator 4.0, the latest version of its tool for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos system-wide across all Mac OS X applications.
The new version introduces a new feature called “QuickSearch.” Instead of inventing and remembering hundreds of cryptic abbreviations, you just type a keyboard shortcut and enter a few characters. Typinator instantly displays a list of matching snippets. Pick the one that you want, and it appears in your document right away. It’s like Spotlight for snippets, only much faster, says Ergonis CEO Christoph Reichenberger. QuickSearch can also be used for quickly opening and editing existing snippets.
Typinator 4.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or newer, and Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”) is recommended.
Typinator can be purchased on the Ergonis Software web site for $19.99 for a single user license. A family pack for installation on up to five computers is $29.99. The upgrade to Typinator 4.0is free for anyone who purchased Typinator in the last two years.
