AutoPairs modifies the behavior of certain keystrokes, to help you keep paired characters such as parentheses properly matched. For instance, when you type a left parenthesis, AutoPairs will type the right parenthesis and a left arrow for you, so that you are ready to type what goes between the parentheses. This and other pair macros can be turned on and off individually, and configured differently for specific applications.
AutoPairs is a system preference pane, as well as a background application. It will not be visible in your Dock.
Known Issue: Using AutoPairs with Apple’s Pages app will cause Pages to hang, for unknown reasons. However, you can turn off AutoPairs just in Pages. See the Read Me for more details. There may be a similar issue with Keynote.
This version of AutoPairs requires an Intel CPU and OS 10.5 or later.
Version 3.1.2 fixes a bug in saving settings.
AutoPairs is a free extension that helps you type parentheses, brackets, and braces. When you type a left brace, for example, AutoPairs automatically types a right brace and a left arrow, so that you are instantly ready to type what goes between the braces. AutoPairs should run on any PowerMac that uses an OS version less than 10.
New in version 1.1: When the title of the front window ends with ".html", ".htm", or ".xml", AutoPairs similarly pairs the less-than and greater-than signs, also known as angle brackets.
New in version 1.2: Double quotes, both curly and straight kinds, are now paired. More file extensions trigger angle bracket pairing: ".php", ".php3", ".dtd", and ".xsl".
