TextExpander snippets for Windows
PhraseExpress can import and synchronize text snippets with the popular Apple Mac utility TextExpander® for use on Windows computers:
Cross-platform Autotext functionality
PhraseExpress allows you to use the snippet collection you have created on your Mac also on a Windows PC.
TextExpander's macro functions such as %snippet% to link and nest phrases, %fill% to add manual text input, keypress simulations and date/time stamps are properly converted into the PhraseExpress macro equivalents.
Synchronization in both directions
Beware of other Windows programs promising you "Text Expander compatibility" but only allow you to import Text Expander text snippets from Mac to Windows in one direction.
Those programs may lock-in your data and do not allow you to export them from Windows back to the Mac platform! Whatever you edit or create on Windows won't be available on the Mac platform!
PhraseExpress works in both directions! It imports from TextExpander and then also synchronizes back to the Mac. You can create new snippets on either platform and have them available on both platforms.
Support for latest TextExpander version 5
PhraseExpress already supports the modified file format of the latest TextExpander version 5.
PhraseExpress supports formatted text in the Windows version but OSX text formatting differs and formatted text snippets may not sync.
PhraseExpress includes support for cloud storage services: Copy your TextExpander text snippets file to any local network shared folder or cloud sync folder and PhraseExpress will automatically offer you to integrate those files in PhraseExpress for synchronization.
PhraseExpress works fine with most sync folder based cloud services, such as Dropbox, GoogleDrive or Microsoft OneDrive. TextExpander proprietary online cloud service is not supported.
...and SO much more!
PhraseExpress has come a long way since 2002 and offers an unparalleled feature set. It is available as a portable edition and Android App as well.
