If you find yourself writing a lot of boilerplate content as part of your job, you know how tedious it can get. In fact, it's as if your fingers have memorized all of the motions required to bang out the same paragraph, over and over, and your brain is just on standby, waiting for your hands to catch up. Imagine how much more productive you could be if you could skip all of that pesky typing, but still crank out just as much work product. How? With today's discount software promotion, Auto Text Expander!

Auto Text Expander lets you create abbreviations for frequently used text and images, letting you automatically insert full words and phrases with just a keystroke. With Auto Text Expander, not only do you have control over populating content, you also have full comment of formatting! Just set up your snippets, and add to your library of snippets as your needs dictate, and start working smarter, not harder. You can even use Auto Text Expander to keep track of how many snippets have expanded, how many characters you've saved in typing, and the total time saved over a period of a week or a month, so you can have a real-world measurement of your efficiency. The program even works well when filling out online forms, thanks to a unique Fill-in Macro.

At all times, you can customize which applications can invoke your snippets, and which snippets will be active for that application.

H. H. Hallo,
just testing auto text expander and think that it could be useful. But I´´m not quite sure if it will fit one´´s needs, when having a greater amount of text snippets to be stored, since in that case it may be difficult to have a good overview.
So I´´ll ask, if you consider to allow to create sub-menus /subgroups. That could be very useful, when having an increasing numvber of text-snippets.
with kind regards

Garima Sharma Hello,
Auto Text Expander allows you to create Group of snippets and you can have multiple snippets within one group. This will help you in managing increasing number of text-snippets very well.

While triggering the group, it will show you the list of all the snippets it have and you can easily select the snippet from the list.

H. H. Hallo,
thank you for responding. I was aware of the ability to create groups and tried it with the demo version, but already during testing I missed the ability to create "sub"-groups. The maximum of snippets which is shown without having to scroll at my 17,3" notebook, when using the shortcut for showing the group is 7 snippets - that´´s not very much. Scrolling needs more time, so if more snippets are stored in a group it will save less time.The maximum number of groußs - without having to scroll is 31 at my NB.
So the ability of making use of sub-groups could be very helpful to allow better overview and faster access when storing a great number of snippets. Perhaps you may reconsider.

For people looking for a professional solution for storing text modules together with ms office texmanager ( may be worth trying..

Stefan Hauber Does your tool automatically expands text, without asking me? On your video it looks like this way.

I would prefer something like a little window showing me, the entered text can be expanded and let me press a self-choosen key (e.g. TAB) to extract it.

Also a hotkey would be nice, which would display all the texts with the just entered prefix and let me choose one. So e.g. if I have a text sh_address and sh_phone after entering sh and pressing this hotkey I wold be able to choose between my two texts sh_address and sh_phone and after having done this the appropriate is expanded.

Can ATE do one (or both) of these features?
And if not, do you plan to add them in a future (free) update?

H. H. @ Stefan Hauber
as far as I have tried (hopefully understand your question correctly), it is possible to choose if there should be automatic expansion.
Look in help-menu under "C. Options. 1. general a. Expand abbreviations"
There is described, that one can choose under "options" - "general""expand abbreviations" the feature "expand abbreviations" (to completely disable it there is a checkbox at the beginning, but it must be checked if autoexpander should work at demand),
to just trigger the abbreviation with an additional key
choose the feature "at delimiter (abandon delimiter) and then choose "set delimiters" 1 of 30 keys (I tried it with the "+" key and it seems to work fine. Hope that helps, I had the same problem, but just figrued it out.
with kind regards

Chris These 2 reasons in "The Fine Print" are reasons enough NOT to buy this software:

?Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.

?Upgrades to future versions of the software will require additional payment.

I will pass as I have a great program that does the same thing that I got from BitsDuJour. (Key Manager by ATNSOFT)
