Used by graphic designers, editors and web designers, to reduce text cleanup time.
Em and en dashes, smart quotes and ligatures are set or removed, unwanted spaces, tabs, returns are eliminated, and much more, making search-and-replace prep work a thing of the past. Works directly with QuarkXPress, InDesign, text files or copy/paste. Unlike search and replace, there's no need to perform tasks several times over. Click once and all cleaning functions are performed simultaneously and in the best possible sequence.
Text Cleaner works seamlessly with InDesign, InCopy and QuarkXPress. No more endless search and replace dialog boxes. Select the text and go to the Text Cleaner window. Click one button and you’re done. Text Cleaner takes care of the job before you’re eyes. Since everything is done in one shot, it saves an enormous amount of time. Compare this quick select-and-click to planning and implementing your search and replace routines.
If you can copy the text, you can clean it. Copy the text, switch to Text Cleaner and click “Clean Clipboard” then switch back to your application and paste. Use any combination of cleaning options. Text Cleaner cleans the clipboard at a blindingly fast clip.
When you paste the clean text back into your document (or another application) it will be without styling (bold, itals, font sizes, etc) because Text Cleaner’s clipboard is style agnostic. It cares only about the content. While this might be an inconvenience in some instances, it can also be used as a handy tool to strip formatting.
If formatting needs to be retained, we recommend using Text Cleaner within the layout of InDesign, InCopy or QuarkXPress.
Text Cleaner can make quick work of text files. Clean them one at a time or drop them on the DropClean app (included) for batch processing. To create multiple, pre-defined drag and drop batches, duplicate the DropClean application and rename it to match Text Cleaner Presets.
Text Cleaner cleans “plain text” files, also known as “text only.” Plain text files might have the “.txt” file extension. Text files can be exported from a layout application or saved from a word processor. A text file in another format can be opened and saved as plain text.
Simply using a find/replace can leave you with the same or even worse conditions than when you started. Consider the situation where you want to eliminate multiple tabs. How many times do you need to run a find/replace command? Over and over and over because tabs that were between tabs have now come together causing a second set of double tabs. Consider this for multiple spaces, returns… on and on.
Have you ever been puzzled over the order you should do find/replace? Double spaces first? Multiple returns first? What if something is removed and creates a situation you want to eliminate?
Text Cleaner runs the cleaning operations in the best possible sequence. Text Cleaner is also savvy enough to know measurements are not quotes and which way year apostrophes point (90′s or ’90). Text Cleaner knows when to use en and em dashes, ellipses and ligatures and how to set professional typesetting in seconds.
Text Cleaner doesn’t just replace, it analyzes the content using a context-sensitive engine and does exactly what you ask in the best way possible. Give your brain a rest.
Save settings in snapshots called “presets” for fast recall. To use one simply select it from the pop-up menu. Presets remember everything. Export your presets and send them to your co-worker at the next desk. The entire office or organization can clean consistently.
No built-in solution fits everyone. That’s why we let you enter up to ten custom cleaning operations. These fields look more like a traditional find/change, but don’t be fooled. Text Cleaner will hunt down multiple instances until they’re extinct.
Pop-up menus allow you to insert invisible characters such as returns and tabs and even common characters like quotes, bullets, copyright symbols and more. You can also enter any ASCII character number by making the selection from the pop-up menu and substituting the number.
Text Cleaner’s usual built-in cleaning operations and your custom entries work together and can be saved in presets.
