Mac TextExpander

PhraseExpress can import text snippets of the 3rd party software "TextExpander" for use with PhraseExpress for Windows, Mac and iPhone/iPad.

To import from TextExpander:
  1. Open TextExpander and right-click the snippet group, that you wish to transfer to PhraseExpress.
  2. Choose "Save a Copy Of Group…" from the context menu and select the file destination, e.g. the Desktop.
  3. Exit TextExpander and copy the exported TextExpander snippets file to the Windows PC.
  4. Open the PhraseExpress main program window.
  5. Click the main menu button "Import" and select the text snippet file you just have exported from TextExpander.

PhraseExpress supports unformatted TextExpander text snippets and a selection of TextExpander macro functions. Those are converted to the PhraseExpress syntax. Apple-/Javascript is not support at this time. However, PhraseExpress includes its own powerful cross-platform macro language.
