Text Expander for automagic typo correction
Merlin Mann | Oct 23 2006
Recently, I was emailing with our friends over at Smile on My Mac about how I use Text Expander as an automatic spelling and typo corrector, and I realized that there wasn't a canonical location for the user-created "snippets" file you need to import in order to get this feature working.
Jean and her elves not only set up this handy dandy page but also edited the heck out of the snippets source file (zip) -- removing any entries that "step on" each other, as well as generally tidying things up.
If, like me, you're a TE fan with fat fingers, this is a terrifically useful way of cleaning up after yourself.
Also, keep an eye out -- we having an upcoming episode of Mac Break that's all about Text Expander. I am a fan.
