[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software today announced the release of Typinator 3.0, the latest version of its highly acclaimed tool for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos system-wide across all Mac OS X applications.
With the new version, Typinator is no longer a regular application visible in the dock and the application switcher, but rather a dockless background-only application that is acting unobtrusively in the background. A small icon in the menu bar gives quick access to Typinator's main window.
A new search feature lets you instantly view only snippets that contain a specified search string. Particularly users with many snippets will love this feature. Typinator 3.0 also adds a number of further improvements. Visit Ergonis Software's website to learn more about all changes in the release and to download and try the new version.
"When we initially designed Typinator, we decided to make it a regular application, not a System Preference Pane, since this gives a wider scope for a comfortable user interface, and it seems that our customers like the resulting flexibility. However, it turned out that many users do not want to see Typinator as a regular application visible in the dock and the application switcher," said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. "I am therefore more than happy to announce that Typinator 3.0 offers the best of both worlds. Typinator is now an invisible background application that is visible only in form of a menu status item. However, when you need to access Typinator's functionality, it instantly opens up a full-fledged application window with no limitations in size, functionality, and comfort".
Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that works across all applications to detect specific sequences of typed characters and automatically replace them with text snippets, graphics, URLs, dates and special characters.
For business users, Typinator leads to a layer of operational consistency and productivity across heterogeneous applications. A standard customer service response, a signature image on an email, a clause in a contract - each of these can be inserted in any application with just a couple of keystrokes. For technical users, Typinator automates typing of code and the implementation of documentation standards.
