Just a comment about WordExpander because I hate bad service.  Though the WordExpander site has a “Support” link and and e-mail address from which to get support, when I contacted them (because WordExpander is very buggy on my computer) I got a very terse response that WordExpander is freeware and if I wanted support I should pay for PhraseExpress. When I followed up with them they said that the “Support” was really to get feedback and not to provide support.

Sigh. It’s fair enough not to provide support for freeware, but not if you suggest that you do on the site.

The “Support” information has now been removed from their site.  So it’s an unsupported solution.

Interesting. I was just looking at that page last night and it was still there. In the software (v. 1.5.15.22729) though it still says “Customer Support: Get help from our support team.”

Nevertheless, I’m still grateful to the developer to have made the software freely available. Do any of the other text expanders for Win have this popup menu (suggestions window) next to the cursor that WordExpander and PhraseExpander have? That is a key feature for me.

Hi Franz, sorry to hear about the issues you’ve experienced with Breevy. Please feel free to shoot us an e-mail at support@16software.com and we’d love to try and figure out what’s going on and hopefully get it fixed for you.

(I actually think I might know what’s happening with the lowercase “i” always being changed to a capital “I”—I could be wrong but my guess is that your “i” abbreviation’s replacement mode is set to “immediately” (lightning bolt icon). If you switch it to “after a word-ending character is typed” (blue icon with white “W” on it) and then Apply your changes, that should make it so Breevy only replaces the lowercase “i” with a capital “I” if it’s typed as a single word rather than also at the beginning of words. Regarding the issue of your name being misspelled, I’m not sure what would be causing that other than it being misspelled in the abbreviation’s replacement text, but again, feel free to e-mail us at support@16software.com and we’d be happy to troubleshoot the issue with you if you like.)

- Patrick
