TidBITS Publishing has announced the latest title in their Take Control series — “Take Control of TextExpander,” by Mac expert Michael E. Cohen. In the ebook, he helps readers take advantage of the power of TextExpander 3, a text expansion utility from Smile.

Cohen first teaches TextExpander newbies how to create “snippets” of text (like an address) that can be inserted into text in nearly any application by typing a short abbreviation (for example, addd). Once readers are comfortable with TextExpander’s core controls and options, he explains TextExpander’s sophisticated options for inserting and working with snippets, including how to use snippets on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch using Smile’s TextExpander touch app.

The 93-page ebook is available for US$10 at http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/textexpander . The book was created in partnership with Smile.
