TextExpander snippets for Windows
PhraseExpress can 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 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.
PhraseExpress also syncs RTF formatted text and auto-adapts its user interface to the feature set of Text Expander.
Synchronization in any direction
Beware of other Windows programs that promise you "Text Expander compatibility" but only allow you to import Text Expander text snippets from Mac to Windows in one direction only. Those lock-in your data and do not allow you to export them from Windows back to the Mac platform! This means, that whatever you edit or create on Windows won't be available on the Mac platform!
PhraseExpress works in both directions! It does not only import from TextExpander but also synchronize those text snippets back to the Mac. You can create new snippets on either platform and have them available on both platforms. too.
PhraseExpress has extended Cloud storage support, Just copy your TextExpander text snippets file to any local network shared folder or cloud sync folder and PhraseExpress will automatically offer you to integrate it in PhraseExpress for synchronization. PhraseExpress works perfectly fine with Dropbox, GoogleDrive or Microsoft SkyDrive.
