@Torb - well the program is over 10 years old and hasn't been updated and no doubt some webpages have changed - the source code is now at https://github.com/adampash/texter/ (where you can see it is no longer under development)

The help links in Texter do not work and returns 404. No explanation of the features, and thus most of the features are useless since not documented.

@smaragdus: all fixed, thanks for that

The download link does not work. I can provide the executable if needed.

I find Texter more practical and intuitive than TyperTask but I'm having some Keyboard key combinations to be in conflict with other Applications (eg Ph0t0sh0p) and Win10 global shortcuts (eg Win+I) so I have to constantly disable it as a workaround to it. TyperTask on the other hand is more "TEXT-ONLY" configurable but I get NO CONFLICTS at all. Pity.

@I am Baas - That was a link to the local installer. The plain texter.exe you need isn't hosted on lifehacker.com anymore so I switched it to Adam's repository which should work fine.

I agreee with Nick's comments. I don't have Mark's problem because I use it on phrases i have to use over and over and I give them a name like COD2 that can't possibly be mistaken for a word. Despite its problems, this program exactly meets my needs and I haven't found any other free program like it.
