PhraseExpress eliminates repetitive typing and manages frequently used text snippets in customizable categories. Boilerplate templates can be stored together with bitmaps and RTF or HTML text formatting.

The unique text prediction feature watches out for repetitive text patterns and offers to auto-complete such phrases. Smart algorithms analyze and learn your writing patterns, and suggest the most relevant ways to complete phrases and sentences. The Autotext feature allows assigning a frequently used text such as your address, your signature, or a common phrase to a much shorter abbreviation.

Whenever you type in the assigned abbreviation PhraseExpress will automatically replace it with the original text. For example, "ty" will be expanded to "thank you very much. Existing MS Office AutoCorrect entries can be imported for use in any Windows program, not just MS Office. The software automatically recognizes unwanted Autotexts and suppresses the text replacement the next time you enter the Autotext.

The Clipboard Cache enhances the native Windows clipboard functionality by remembering all items that are copied to the clipboard and storing them for later pasting.

PhraseExpress can optionally remove any text formatting from the clipboard contents. Powerful macro functions can add dynamic contents to static phrases such as the current date, counters, or additional manual input. Phrases can be linked or nested. Macros can also launch programs or open documents triggered by shortcuts. Entering 'calc' may open the Windows calculator program or striking the hotkey CTRL-F8 may offer a Google search query of a highlighted text on-the-fly.

Features and Highlights

Text Snippets Manager
This software organizes your frequently used text snippets in customizable categories for quick access.

Autotext
The tool saves keystrokes by expanding text abbreviations into full-text snippets. E.g. typing 'sig' could insert your signature into any program.

Auto-Complete
The program recognizes repetitive text input automatically and offers to auto-complete full sentences on demand.

Spelling Correction
This software includes a system-wide spelling correction with more than 10,000 spelling corrections in seven languages.

Clipboard Manager
While the standard Windows Clipboard keeps only the last copied data, the Clipboard Manager keeps recently copied clipboard contents for quick access and insertion into any application.

Built-In Pocket Calculator
No calculator at hand while you work on a document? The tool can perform calculations as you type.

Program Launcher
Launch programs simply by entering a text shortcut. For example, type 'word' to launch Microsoft Word or 'exc' to open a spreadsheet.

Email Signatures
Phrase Express can manage your email signature templates for use in any mail program, such as Outlook, Lotus Notes, or Thunderbird. Dynamic contents can be embedded from ActiveDirectory/LDAP.

Note: 30 days trial version. For personal uses only (No license reminders are shown after the 30-day trial if you discontinue using paid features or if you purchase a license).
