Improved phrase synchronization with PhraseExpander 4.6 RealSync™

PhraseExpander 4.6 introduces RealSync™, the new server-less synchronization engine that lets you share your phrases with your team.

This is a big improvement over the past. With RealSync™, multiple users can modify phrases at the same time, and PhraseExpander will take care of managing conflicts and merging changes.

This will result in a smoother collaboration experience, and everyone will feel free to make changes without fear of losing data.

More powerful search

We have enhanced the search in PhraseExpander so you can search for multiple words (even if they are not attached to one another. E.g. if you search for your phrases for diabetes adult, PhraseExpander will find all the phrases that contain both words.

You can enclose the text to search in quotes to search for exact text. E.g. “diabetes type”.

Enhanced search

Combine phrases together (Merge)

If you often have to copy multiple portions of text from different places, and want those to be concatenated, either on a single line with a delimiter, or line by line, the new Merge feature will make your life easier.

By using the Clipboard History, all the text you copy into the clipboard is available in a single place, and you can combine it in a single operation by clicking on the Merge button. You can choose any of the default delimiters (new line, comma, space) or define a custom one.

Faster and improved calculation engine

The new calculation engine is now faster and supports the Power operator (^). You can use currency symbols as well. It can also display thousands separator in the results.

More options in Manual Input

  • Ability to add predefined values in Manual Input with only a description. This allows for creating Yes, No phrases (with No that doesn’t insert any text)
  • Ability to remove empty spaces at the end of the pasted text inside a Manual Input
  • Combine multiple selections by using the Oxford comma, so that a list will look like this: one and two; one, two, and three (with an extra comma before and).
