Typinator

8.3
08 January 2020

Speedy and reliable text expansion solution.

Overview

Typinator turbo-charges your typing productivity.

Type a little. Typinator does the rest.
We've all faced projects that require repetitive typing tasks. With Typinator, you can store commonly used text and images in quick keywords and abbreviations. From email templates to code snippets to website URLs, there's no easier way to recreate repetitive text at a moment's notice.

Workflow-Friendly Features
  • Uncomplicated configuration. Quickly and easily create abbreviations and assign replacement text and pictures.
  • Simplified migration. If you already use TextExpander, TypeIt4Me, or a similar app, you can migrate to the highly praised Typinator using simple drag-and-drop importation methods.
  • Conversion options. Instantly convert currency values, measurement units and more.
  • Extensive app compatibility. Your text expansions function in all of your OS X and macOS apps with lightning-fast precision.

Caution: Please note that older versions of Typinator may not work correctly on Mojave (10.14).
If you have already upgraded to Mojave or plan to upgrade soon, we therefore strongly recommend that you upgrade Typinator to version 7.7.

Typinator for me has saved me lot of time, as mention before it does simple expansions, as well you can design complicated forms, with the help of the support team that gives you ideas and solutions to suit your needs. Do not hesitate to give a try, you'll love the ease of use and thank the time saved.

Wonderfully useful little app. I use Typinator every day for quick email sign offs and pasting the contents of the clipboard as plain text (very handy when copying and pasting between different programs). It also comes in very handy when filling in forms. It is the first thing I install on a new machine; I am so used to writing shortcuts that I feel a little lost without it. If you dig a little deeper it has an array of functions that allow you to insert all sorts of things like dates and images. It also allows you to work with variables, giving you the ability to include input fields into expansions, something that came in very handy when I had to report a mountain of statistical results in a consistent format.

I'm using Typinator for many years and it's a fantastic application. 100% reliable, I can't remember it ever crashed. I'm using it countless times a day while writing e-Mails or filling out text on websites saving me a huge amount of time. It's very simple to use and the friendly developers answer your questions pretty fast. With the regular upgrades for a fair price this app is a must have on any Mac. Even the newest version 8.0.1 still works on my 12 year old MacBook Pro.

I've used Typinator for years, and really love it. Recently, I had a problem where, after I updated a particular program, Typinator would make it crash. Ergonis tech support found the OTHER program's bug (not Typinator's) and fixed the problem, even though it wasn't Typinator's issue. 5-Star product, 5-star support! Highly recommended.

Typinator is a must-have app for FileMaker Pro developers. There is an entire snippet library already available for calculations, and with a clever combination of Typinator and AppleScript, you can also easily insert blocks of script steps into FileMaker's script workspace, or layout objects onto layouts. Typinator has saved me countless keystrokes, hours and headaches over the years. Ergonis's customer support is incredibly responsive, and they don't charge a subscription model. 6 Stars!

I have been using Typinator for a number of years, which in itself suggests that this is an app with a difference. Possibly, like me, you download an app and use it for a while and then stop using it because it's usefulness is not what you thought it would be. Think again with Typinator from Ergonis. I have used it and used it and used it through numerous upgrades, all of which further enhances a tremendously useful, easy to use and time-saving app. It may be a cliché but I couldn’t do without Typinator. The few times that I have asked for technical support this has quickly and efficiently solved my own self-inflicted problems. It is a great app provided and supported by a super company.

I’ve been using Typinator for several years now. It is fantastic. Typinator allows you to type in a snippet of text and have it expanded into much longer text that otherwise might be tedious and time consuming to type repeatedly. At its heart, that is what Typinator is all about, but it does so much more. If there is something you need to do repeatedly, regardless of how complex, Typinator can save you time and effort. While there are several companies making software that competes with Typinator, its feature set, build quality, usability, price, and finally their service and support, are outstanding.
