Automators 22: Text Expansion

The latest episode of the Automator’s podcasts is now available for download. In this episode, we go back to basics and talk about text expansion. I joke in the episode that text expansion is a gateway drug or automation, but that’s really kind of true. Just about anybody can do text expansion and as you start to get your mind around some of the more powerful text expansion tools, you’re going to find a lot of ways to use it.

The thing I like about this episode is that we not only talk about the basics, but we move into the advanced. No matter what level of usage you are at with text expansion (or if you’ve never used it at all), I think this is a great episode to help you move the ball little further down the road toward getting your work done faster and more accurately.
