Problem with Snippets from aText or raycast

Post by demmrink » Fri Jan 14, 2022 4:25 pm

I work with an external app for text modules. It has worked well so far. Recently, however, the abbreviations are no longer replaced, but the abbreviation remains and the snippet is added.
That is bad. The text modules work in all other applications. I have also used another snippet tool (e.g. raycast), but there too the same problem with Mellel.

I have been working with Mellel for years and so far this has never been a problem.
My version is 5.0.9.

I'd certainly report this to support if you haven't done so already. My own snippet manager (Typinator) is still working smoothly in Mellel 5.0.9. One thing you might check for is whether you've recently added any other utilities that might be saving and using and restoring your Mac's clipboard in ways that interfere with orderly communication between Mellel and aText (or raycaster). Does your problem persist when (e.g.) Mellel and aText are the only things running?

Thank you for the feedback.
I do not use any other tool and have not installed anything new.
It doesn't matter whether I use raycast or aText for the snippets. In any case, the abbreviation is not replaced, but the replacement is appended to the abbreviation. No other app behaves like this - and neither has Mellel so far.
