aText: text expander that works in Parallels too

I'm using TextExpander (with CafeTran too) but I find it interesting that aText obviously works with Virtual Machines with Windows too:

How to make aText work with Parallels virtual machine?

1. Disable Parallels‘s Coherence mode.
2. Does not use Full-screen mode.

aText 2.5.1

Released on 7/31/2013

Improved support for Parallels.

Works in Java apps (i.e. Minecraft).

(I didn't test it with CafeTran though.)

Keyboard Maestro works in VM Ware – even in Unity mode (i.e. Coherence mode in Parallels).

This might indeed depend on your VM version and your VM settings.
