When I last blogged about this, back in 2006 (!!), we were only on round 12.
TextExpander was only at version 1.3 (!!).
Today I got an email announcing TextExpander 4.2.1, so I checked it out. I'm trying it, and thus far, I'm liking it. It expands every time so far, and the only missing feature that I used a few times in TypeIt4Me is the ability to simulate other keyboard presses (like the backspace key) when expanding.
Why am I trying TextExpander - and actually going so far as to buy the upgrade ($15) and commit to using it for awhile? Because TypeIt4Me doesn't seem to be getting attention. The last update is approaching a year old, and none of the instructions were even updated for Mavericks and the new Accessibility controls or System Prefs.
TextExpander, on the other hand, continues to get attention.
