Get Plain Text for Mac2.0

23 April 2016

Convert any text to plain text.

What is Get Plain Text for Mac

Get Plain Text is a practical utility program to process text within: It converts copied text into plain text. If you've used the copy/paste functions in Mac OS before, you'll appreciate how valuable Get Plain Text is! We use it ourselves every day. This app will lower your stress level and save you tons of time!

It instantly removes everything unneeded: colors, typeface size, style (for example, boldface/italics), hyper-links, images, etc. In other words, everything that isn't plain text! Now you can put plain text in your letters and documents using the copy/paste functions, without having to clean it up manually. Get Plain Text will convert any bit of text into plain text, no matter where you copied it from (a website, PDF document or elsewhere). You can activate the feature manually, or check "automatically remove formatting".

What's new in Get Plain Text

Version 2.0:
  • Simplify quotes: All occurrences of any of the characters („ " " » «) transforms to " and (› ‹ ‚ ‘ ’) transforms to '
  • Improved user interface localization
  • Ready for OS X 10.11 El Capitan

What earthly reason could there possibly be for an application, whose SOLE purpose is to convert current clipboard contents to plain text, also creating a new folder within the user > Library > Containers folder that holds aliases to EVERY FOLDER within that user's own home folder? I call shenanigans! O-:> Now, I am not a code jockey, so perhaps there is a practical purpose for that, that is simply beyond my understanding.... However, discovering it immediately set off this old-fashioned MacHead control freak's internal "intruder alert!" klaxon and literally made my skin crawl as well. Needless to say (but I will), I root-searched my hard drive, and everything with "getplaintext" and/or "zipzapmac" in its name was tossed into ye olde Trash can and secure-emptied posthaste. Note also that AppCleaner did NOT detect the presence of this folder when I used it to trash the Get Plain Text app, so if you use it (or a similar utility) to uninstall software, you'd also need to bop into your Containers folder to grab and trash that sucker by hand. So-o-o, in summary, if you are thinking about taking this one for a test drive, proceed at your possible peril. (Or not. (-;)
