TextExpander and Mavericks Tip for Text Expanding Bliss

If you have recently upgraded your Mac to Mavericks and discover that TextExpander no longer seems to work for you, don’t panic: TextExpander 4.1.1 is completely Mavericks compatible, but you may have to adjust some Accessibility settings in System Preferences. According to the Smileworthy blog entry, TextExpander and Mavericks, you need to do the following:

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu
  2. Click on Security & Privacy
  3. Click on the Privacy tab
  4. Click on Accessibility in the list at the left
  5. Click the lock icon to allow you to make changes (you’ll be prompted for your password)
  6. Check “TextExpander” and “TextExpander Helper” (the latter may not appear)
  7. Launch TextExpander and you should be back in business
