  4. I don't think it's much at all. I use it pretty much as a spotlight replacement (and my default clipboard manager). I've added some custom workflows to it (searching through bookmarks in Pinboard, changing the thermostat, and a few other things). I think it's probably the first thing I install on a new computer these days.

    Hoping you all can help.

    I am trying to use text expander with variable data.

    Anyone know a way to repeat an input with text expander?

    example:
    Sending an email using an SMS gateway:

    Someone's phone number is 5555555555 and you are not sure which carrier they have. Is there a way to send to multiple SMS gateways such as: 5555555555@vtext.com, 5555555555@tmomail.com without having to copy and paste the number twice.

    If you set up a single-line input and name it the same across all instances, it will duplicate the text you actually input when you run the snippet. Basically, you want the ids of these variables to be the same. See the example for ClassName attached.
