Necessity is a mother
I didn't know I could do that
My friend Ton Zijlstra recently wrote about, prompted by TextExpander's move to a subscription model. I found myself in the same boat a while back, but wasn't entirely happy with the way Alfred handled that kind of text expansion. I replied to Ton, pointing out that I preferred TextExpander because “I don’t have to summon Alfred first”.
Dumb, as I learned by actually reading about Alfred Snippets in a bit more detail and as Ton gently pointed out.
Time to start transferring those snippets over, which is also a good opportunity to clean them up a bit, sort them out a bit, and consider a collection wide affix.
Thanks Ton for prompting me to do this.
