The original article was from some time back I see (I’ve just googled about text expanders and this article was one of the results). I always used Autotext in versions of Word (and other Microsoft Office programs up to version 2003, but find it’s less user friendly for a typist in Microsoft Office/Word 2010). The free downloads most recommended on various articles on the web seem to have bugs with regard to working with Windows 7 which is s great shame.
