Tutorial Description

New In TextExpander 3 is a new Fill-In snippet, allowing you to create snippets which prompt you with special fields to fill-in when expanded. TextExpander 3 has been significantly updated both with enhancements to it's core functionality as well as some radical re-engineering of the application. It's now a full blown cocoa application rather than a System preferences pane option.

In addition, the menu bar icon has a host of new features as well as lots of new keyboard shortcuts to both create and edit snippets. Ever put off editing one of your snippets due to having to labouriously load up and find the snippet through System Preferences? Now, your last expanded snippet can be immediately be retrieved for editing with a simple keystroke.
