Textpander is an app that saves time and effort by storing frequently typed text (or snippets), which you can then insert as you type with a user-defined abbreviation.
Bob tried Apple’s built-in signature feature, but “found it dreadful as the signature seleciton is “out of the way” of my focus when typing and requires selection from a drop-down menu.”
Using Textpander for signatures was the answer.
I use Textpander for signatures too. I find it the most elegant solution, especially if you run multiple aliases on the one account and have to manually select the sig you want from the drop-down menu. Textpander is faster and more efficient.
I also find more and more that I am wanting my sigs outside of Apple Mail in email forms, forum posts, webmail interfaces, in Entourage and so on. With Textpander the signatures are at my fingers tips whether I am in Mail.app or not.
Of course, Textpander does much more than this. Get it from Peter Maurer’s web site and start exploring all the efficiency it offers.
