TextExpander 5.1 Adds Suggestion Control

TextExpander 5.1 is out (click Preferences > Updates to get the update) and, aside from minor fixes, the update refines the new Suggestions feature. The app now excludes most single dictionary words when it suggests snippets, and it adds a new checkbox in its Preferences > Suggestions settings: Notify Me about Snippet Suggestions. When this box is unchecked, TextExpander will still add suggestions to its Suggested Snippets group but will not post notifications about them. If you don’t mind getting snippet suggestions (and, periodically, culling them as I suggest in the book), but you do dislike seeing notifications about them popping up on your screen, this checkbox is for you.
