I have been using iText Express, by the same author, for years now and have shifted up to iText Pro '08 for 2 reasons. First that it is so fast with even more features and second I figure I owe him, BIG TIME :)
Honestly do yourself a favor , DL this and only use it for a short while to see how fast, responsive and featured this TextEditor/Word Processor/DTP/Multi-Media app is.
I use it to manage my work, correspondence, websnippets, DLs, Tutorials, pdf creation… you name it and I am finding new uses for it everyday. It is the one program I have perpetually open and am using virtually 90% of the day.
I can not understand for the life of me why Mac users moan about MsWord or Pages when there is such a wonderful alternative. I'm a hardened and cynical long time Mac user and I can not help but gush at just how good this program is.
If you want to be cheap get iText Express, otherwise go up a notch and support great Mac software and buy the very cheap iText Pro '08!
