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.
- 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.
- New “statistics mode” shows how often abbreviations have been used and when they were used most recently.
- “Magic keys”: Short presses of modifier keys (⌃⇧⌥⌘) can now be used as parts of abbreviations as if they were real characters.
- Reorganized editing of expansions in the Typinator window with embedded graphical menu bar and larger expansion area.
- The contents of the expansion field can now be zoomed.
- A new technique for specifying the language to be used for data elements (day and month names) now supports multiple languages in the same expansion.
- It is now possible to specify the time zone to be used for date and time markers.
- Integration with PopChar: When PopChar 8.2 or newer is installed, Typinator’s Quick Search can find and insert Unicode characters by name or number.

- The list of Quick Search matches now displays the actual picture for picture expansions.

- Improved handling of the splitter between the lists and the expansion area.
- Description texts in input forms now accept basic markdown formatting (currently supports bold, italic, and links).
