Thanks to TextExpander for sponsoring this week!

TextExpander 6.5 is out with a great new visual editor for snippets! The new editor gives you visual access to fill-ins, dates and date math, nested snippets, and more. Snippets that used to look like %@+1D%B %e, %Y now shows up as a tidy set of token fields that you can double click to edit.

For those who get into scripting their snippets, automation is even easier with the new editor’s JavaScript syntax highlighting.

As always, the TextExpander snippets you use on your desktop or laptop work on your iPhone and iPad, too. And TextExpander Windows users now get offline editing support, and improved expansion. readers get 20% off their first year. Visit to learn more about TextExpander!
