Ergonis Software ( has annnounced Typinator 6.5, a new version of their text expander for Mac OS X.

The new version adds a helpful new feature that lets you define the way how the system-wide “smart substitutions” settings for quotes, dashes, etc. are handled within Typinator. French speaking Typinator users will be glad to hear that Typinator now also accepts French quoting style (with double angle quotation marks and non-breaking spaces) in the marker for nested abbreviations.

Typinator 6.5 also works around a crash when expanding text in Yosemite’s sharing window with the “quick expansion” option enabled. It further improves compatibility with OS X Yosemite and third-party applications.

Typinator 6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer. The upgrade to Typinator 6.5 is free for anyone who owns a valid license for Typinator 6. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. For new users the price is approximately US$37.
