Lintalist v1.8 Updated

lintalist on 25 Jun 2016
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Jan 2016
  • Suggested by lintalist

Lintalist is a context sensitive text-expander with abbreviations, shortcuts, plugins, scripts and search. It allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. The text can be interactive, for example you can automatically insert the current time and date, ask for (basic) user input or make a selection from a list etc and finally it can also run a script. You can use keyboard shortcuts or abbreviations to paste the text (or run the script) without opening the search window. You can also use formatted text (html, markdown and rtf) and images.

  • Change: Snippet, Bundle, Counter and Local variable editors are now all visible
    on the taskbar as a child window of a disabled Lintalist Search GUI (if present)
    this makes it easer to switch from/to the appropriate editor using alt-tab and mouse
  • Added: Choice plugin GUI now has "Endless scrolling in a listbox" similar to
    Search GUI listview + Added a Random option
  • Fix: Cancelling a snippet with Choice plugin no longer makes Shorthand stop working
  • Fix: After using quick search with one result e.g. automatic pasting of the only
    snippet, pressing space or tab executed the snippet again. Cleared the typing history
    after each paste fixed it.
  • Fix: Pause shortcut could cause error, added #IfWinNotActive ahk_group

I'm using the latest version of PhraseExpress Portable on XP Pro, but it's putting two files (config.xml and pexdesktop.xml) into my Documents and Setting/Application Data/PhraseExpress folder.

Is there any way to change where these files are stored, so that the true portability of this application can be made?

Please read above "How to extract"
Start de programm with the -portable parameter
and all settings are stored in the application folder

Version history is available

... but it only mentions changes in the paid version for this release.

The freeware still provides English (American or British), French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian support only -- Hunspell compatibility is only available in the paid version.

Textreme v3.1

SYSTEM on 29 Feb 2016
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Feb 2016
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Textreme is a tool for "text remodelling", allowing you to change text and modify its appearance by delete blanks or moving/insert words. Great for updating text files with lots of minor changes that would be manually tedious, the program offers a variety of string-based functions (deleting sections, inserting into a specific place, switching bits around, etc.) for text files. There are currently nine different actions that can be performed in various ways and actions can be cascaded in so that many changes can be made in a single pass.

Tip: Use "TextEditor="dummy\..\..\PathToYourEditor.exe" to specify an editor with relative path in Textreme.ini.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Path portability: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package according to your system and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Textreme.exe or Textreme64.exe.
