Create OmniFocus actions, action groups, and projects more quickly and accurately by defining TextExpander snippets for frequently typed words and phrases.

App Description

TextExpander allows you to define short strings of text known as “snippets” that expand into longer strings of text. A snippet can even expand to paragraphs of text, complete with formatting and images. By creating snippets for content you enter frequently, you can dramatically increase both the speed and accuracy of your keyboard entries.

TextExpander is available for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Windows, and Chrome. Your snippets are synced between all of your devices using TextExpander’s cloud service.

OmniFocus Snippet Library

Consider creating snippets for the text you frequently type in OmniFocus. To help you get started, download our OmniFocus Snippet Library, which is available in English, French (français), and German (Deutsch). Thanks to Learn OmniFocus Members Martin Jean and Clemens Schleicher for translating the snippets into French and German.

If you’re using TextExpander on iPhone or iPad, you’ll need to tap the “Update Snippets” button in OmniFocus Settings each time you make changes or additions to your snippet library. Alternatively, you can make use of the TextExpander keyboard that comes bundled with TextExpander for iOS/iPadOS.

Snippets can be used with OmniFocus on the Mac without any additional configuration.
