TextSpresso for Mac

23 March 2013

Professional text filtering application.

What is TextSpresso for Mac

TextSpresso is an easy to use, professional level text filtering application. TextSpresso includes 200 filters and can handle a wide range of tasks, including:
  • Cleaning up E-mails, Web pages, MIME text documents, and other text retrieved from the Internet.
  • Preparing text for the Internet to insure that it is readable regardless of transport method or end destination. TextSpresso can prepare Mac text, which may contain Internet incompatible special characters and formatting, for E-mail, Usenet, and message boards.
  • Converting cross platform text files between Mac and PC with special character preservation.
  • Preparing text documents for publishing in HTML on the World Wide Web.
  • Preparing documents for print publishing. TextSpresso can reformat text so that it looks good in print and obeys many of the common spacing and character rules of graphic design, saving publishers a great deal of time and money.
  • Whatever you need. TextSpresso lets users create new filters using 7 different core filter types including pattern matching and MultiFilter.

What's new in TextSpresso

Version 3.1b1:
  • [Fix] Fixed crash on startup issue experienced by some users on Mac OS 10.7 and higher.
  • [Fix] The open recent menu will now open the correct file even if another file exists in the menu with the same parent/name.
  • [Fix] Fixed display issues with the global menu icon.
  • [Fix] Eliminated the drawing artifacts which sometimes appeared when resizing the text file editor.
  • [Fix] Eliminated an issue where the first new text file editor after launch would sometimes have a corrupted editor field frozen at an incorrect size.
  • [Fix] Fixed a bug where the Edit>>Select All command wouldn't work in all text fields.
  • [Fix] Fixed a bug which could cause a crash when replacing a string with nothing (i.e. deleting a match).
  • [Fix] Changed the way search works. Now when the "beginning/end of document...continue search" dialog is shown and the user clicks OK, the search proceeds through the entire document. Before it only wrapped around to the previous cursor position. If the cursor was in the middle of a match, that match would never be found.
  • [Fix] Cursor blinking is now more consistent and steady, especially when deleting characters/selections.
  • [New] A border is now drawn around the editor field and scroll bars.
  • [New] Recently used filter category.
  • [New] Toolbar icons now highlight when clicked.

$29.95 is not free. Even $20, which is what it is priced at on the developer's site is not free. This ought to be corrected.

How does TextSpresso compare to TextSoap? I'm trying to decide between the two, unless… do the two complement one another? I'm sure that there are *some* overlapping features between them, but, are the two apps built to serve different functions?

I have missed this product for a few years now, since I was not only an early adopter of OS X, but also left Classic more than 2 years ago. We don't use Classic on any of our 6 Macs, and have an older Mac around that can run OS 8 just in case we need to access some old data or disk. So I haven't had TextSpresso on my systems for at least 2 years, probably 3, and in our publishing workflows it's sorely missed. SmartWrap is helpful in some cases, but we needed the robustness and customizing capabilities of TextSpresso. Anyone who has to repurpose text from one format to another really needs this. One feature that I'd like to see in a future version would be to be able to open PDF files, like Preview does, and then convert them to other formats such as RTF or HTML or plain text.

I am glad to see that the new version [3.0b1] of TextSpresso runs very well under OS X Tiger 10.4.5. I had to stop using my TextSpresso 2 version under OS X when I moved to Jaguar 10.2.5 But, don't tell anyone :-), I liked it so much that I was still running TextSpresso under the classic mode. By the way, it was the only application to deserve that in my PowerMac.

I keep downloading defective files. Stuffit Expander goes into a spin and can't unstuff the .sit file.

It's great to see a beta OS X version of TextSpresso. Thus far it is working fine for me. There's a color glitch the developer is working on. I maintain a running file of web news articles on human genetics and this application is indispensable for cleaning up web text. It's easy to use and its developer is always quick to respond to questions. I have been using TextSpresso from its beginnings. It's great; give TextSpresso a try!
