  • (2023-02-02) David Sotropa: Was looking for an AutoHotkey like text expansion tool for Chrome OS and macOS as I've always been on Windows. Fantastic tool for text expansion. Especially love that it can be used on any Chrome broswer that I login to without any action on my part.

  • (2023-01-24) Ø Ø: The "onboarding" process is clunky, requiring an email signup. If you're looking for a simple text expander, this app is bloated. If you're looking to convert characters, such as for a different language, this app is unsuitable: it only expands "phrases" that begin with a space character, so characters in the middle of a word will be ignored. And, to boot, it only works in some places in Chrome: it doesn't even work in this review form.
  • (2023-01-23) Martin Freeman: I love this tool. I'm still a recent user but have already seen my productivity levels at least 2x in 1-2 months. I'm sure there is more I can do with it, but I'm over the moon with it so far.

  • (2023-01-18) Koen Van Praet (Psycholoog): Ever since using this brilliant no nonse app I am the politest psychologist around. I started using it for the most simple expansions (br, > Best Regards), signatures and auto-corrections ... now it expands 3 symbols to full letters explaining that I ordered a payment on this and that date using the possibility to include current date, text in copy memory, txt fields for personalization,... Excited that the app will be further developed! Thank you Harpaul ! Keep is simple!

  • (2023-01-02) Nicole Adamiak: Great! Easy to use!
  • (2022-12-31) Mark Goodson: Magical is a very good text expander for Chrome/Brave users. The functionality is excellent and it's easy to use. The only issue that I have is that I mainly work on my Macbook Air and use Alfred as a macro and text expansion tool, which also allows me to use text expansions in other tools (e.g. Obsidian, Outlook, etc). I haven't quite figured it out yet, but may end up using Magical for more complex expansions (e.g. introduction emails) and Alfred for everything else.
  • (2022-12-27) Ken Wan: Exceptional time saving extension. Not only can it save time on things that need to be typed repetitively, I've started to use it as a place to put short notes for myself to quickly look up with a few keystrokes without ever having to tab out.
  • (2022-12-27) Enrique Fiallos: really helpful
  • (2022-12-25) Lucas Braga: Ferramenta incrível!

  • (2021-02-02, v:1.9.5) Tom Mitchell: Timeout variable
    Hi - Can't seem to get what the "shortcut timeout" does. I would assume it issues a delay do I can type, say "co" and if I pause, it inserts the text, if i type another character, it does not. However, this is not happening. No matter how long I make this timeout, the text is instantly replaced. Resorting to the / character to get around, but would like to save that stroke.

  • (2020-12-09, v:1.9.5) Curtis Greer: Trigger event
    Can you make the text completion event trigger on the 'space' key. That way if you are writing a word that contains the abbreviation, it wont auto complete unless you trigger the event using the space key. Example: the abbreviation for "review and analyze" is "ra," but I may want to use the word ratify. In the current config, I can't use any word that starts with "ra" without triggering the full text autocomplete. However, if the autocomplete triggers on the space key event, you could choose when to autocomplete, but maintain the normal typing rhythm.

    Hello! First off, this is an excellent extension--thank you SO much for making it, I use it constantly, and really love it! Recently I've run into a problem when using this on my chromebook which is running Chrome Version 87.0.4280.78 (Official Build) beta (64-bit). The issue is that when I fire a shortcut everything in the input box is erased. Specifically I'm seeing this when in Zendesk (ironically, I do tech support! :-). Any help you can provide or point me in a direction to resolve would be SUPER appreciated! Best, Micah

  • (2020-10-31, v:1.9.5) Ama Ntow: Backup Restore Issues
    Hi, I'm having issues with restoring my data from a backup. Although I'd made changes to my shortcuts and added at least 60, all of which were saved as the changes were made. Despite having saved multiple times over the course of the month, after a recent refresh, all my new shortcuts disappeared as well as updates I'd made to existing shortcuts. I'd previously had such an issue and as such had fallen into the habit of making backups anytime I made a change so that if there was an issue with my saved changes loading after a refresh I could retrieve it through the backup. However, my most recent backup from October 27th is not working. When trying to restore I get a message stating: "Could not restore backup! Data may be corrupted or storage limits may have changed." I'm reaching out because I wanted to know if there is a way for me to view my backup so that I can save it as a json file and import it back into my expander.
