AutoPairs for Mac3.1.3

20 October 2013

Keeps paired characters such as parentheses properly matched.

What is AutoPairs for Mac

AutoPairs modifies the behavior of certain keystrokes, to help you keep paired characters such as parentheses properly matched. For instance, when you type a left parenthesis, AutoPairs will type the right parenthesis and a left arrow for you, so that you are ready to type what goes between the parentheses. This and other pair macros can be turned on and off individually, and configured differently for specific applications.

AutoPairs is a system preference pane, as well as a background application. It will not be visible in your Dock.

Version 3.0 is a Universal Binary, and has been rewritten with newer techniques which should be compatible with Leopard. However, it is not compatible with Panther or earlier.

Now updated to 3.2.1 and works with Mojave. An excellent time saving app. Thanks to the dev for keeping this up-to-date.

Running OS X 10.6.8. I can't date its onset (Safari 5, perhaps), but for quite a while I had a recurring issue in which AutoPairs simply stopped working and I had to restart to regain its functionality. After much frustration I realized that quitting Safari was the key to overcoming the issue. Anybody else experiencing the same symptoms?

I have been using this program for years. Never had a serious issue. Highly recommended. Great app.

Keeps crashing Sys Prefs on 10.6.8. Had to uninstall. Shame. Worked a treat otherwise.

Seems like a nice free app. However, it would be nice to be able to disable/enable the app as you please instead of autopairs always running or resorting to uninstalling...

I haven't got a clue about why or what to do about it, but AutoPairs X has all of a sudden begun quitting for absolutely no discernible reason (OS X 10.6.8), and I've got to either log out/in or restart to get it working again. I'm posting here because the developer has not seen fit to provide an e-mail address for feedback, etc.

it seems to work nice when using english as an input language. but if you switch to a language, which has additional letters assigned to keys {} [] etc, this program makes unwanted letters when typing. so maybe the utility should consider switching and use another keys for making correct pairs in other languages
