    "BEST typing assistant ou there"

    October 25, 2009  |   By PolishSumgai


    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have tried ALL the typing assistants out there for the Mac. The one that is at the top of my list and the one I have used the past 4 years is Typinator. The program is a snap to configure ( with predefined words for spelling error corrections ) as well as making your own free form snippets to be typed wit a few key strokes. The nice feature is the s/w sits within easy reach on the Menu Bar for adding additional snippets. Developer has several predefined tables to choose from, one being a list of HTML codes.

    The HTML snippets set for Typinator provides over 100 abbreviations for elements of the HTML 4.01 standard. Just type a double less-than sign (<<) followed by the name of the desired HTML element and Typinator will insert the corresponding HTML code and place the insertion point appropriately. It's that easy! The HTML snippets set is included with the software.

    The FileMaker 9 functions set contains over 350 abbreviations for all FileMaker 9 functions that provide FileMaker developers with an unprecedented increase of productivity.

    Import from Textpander, TextExpander, TypeIt4Me!

    Abbreviations, pictures, images, word completion, the list goes on and on and on.

    Great Shareware and a lot of action for your money.
