I just purchased MultiMarkDown Composer Pro, and am trying to get text expansion working. Even after enabling text expansion in the preferences, none of the default expansions (.mmd, .latex) provided in ~/Library/Application Support/MultiMarkdown Composer 4/Expansions/default.json work.

Am I missing a hidden delimiter or setting? Thanks.

    Sorry you're having trouble.

    1) The path should be ~/Library/Containers/com.multimarkdown.composer4.mac/Data/Library/Application Support/MultiMarkdown Composer 4/Expansions (Apps from the App Store are sandboxed into their own containers) (The Open Expansions Folder takes you right there)

    2) Make sure to reopen windows after changing text expansion settings. Existing windows don't change their text expansion behavior.

    3) If that doesn't fix it, send me the receipt file and I can validate that you have the Pro update installed (The "Restore" button in the purchase dialog can download a new receipt from the App Store as well). Instructions are here -- http://support.multimarkdown.com/kb/composer-v4/i-dont-think-the-pro-in-app-purchase-is-working-correctly

    I shortened the path for my post, but yes the path matches the one you referenced.
    /Users/(username)/Library/Containers/com.multimarkdown.composer4.mac/Data/Library/Application Support/MultiMarkdown Composer 4/Expansions/default.json

    2) Make sure to reopen windows after changing text expansion settings. Existing windows don't change their text expansion behavior.

    I'm quitting and re-launching every iteration.

    3) If that doesn't fix it, send me the receipt file and I can validate that you have the Pro update installed (The "Restore" button in the purchase dialog can download a new receipt from the App Store as well).

    Following your article I deleted the app and reinstalled, restored the purchase successfully, but still have no luck. Sending the receipt to you for verification.
