Thanks once again, to TextExpander for sponsoring the site this week.

As I mentioned last week, TextExpander is a crucial part of my workflow. One use that I’ve come to love for it is storing document templates in there, such as a basic MultiMarkdown template or a template for the UX Brief we use at Credera.

With the 20% off that Smile is offering, this tool is a no brainer, and one I personally recommend to almost anyone. Be sure to check it out.

TextExpander can be as simple or as geeky as you want. Whatever your level of experience, there’s a TextExpander tip for you:

Getting Started: Make a snippet for your email address. You’ll be amazed at the keystrokes you’ll save not having to type that over and over.

Intermediate: Add one of the Predefined Groups, like HTML/CSS snippets or instant URL shorteners. There’s even an AutoCorrect group to fix your typos.

Advanced: Try fill-in snippets, which have multiple variable fields. For example, you could have a form letter with blanks for name, product, company, etc. Type your abbreviation, fill in the fields and you’re done.

Even More Advanced: Create your own AppleScript and shell script snippets.
