Tex-Edit Plus overview

Tex-Edit Plus is a scriptable, styled text editor with a clean, uncluttered interface. It fills the gap between Apple's bare-bones TextEdit and a full-featured word processor. It's fast, efficient, and has a clean, uncluttered interface. It's also great for cleaning up text which is transmitted over the Internet. It includes full text-to-speech as well as media integration features. Please read 'Welcome to Tex-Edit!' and accompanying documents to understand changes in this version of Tex-Edit Plus.

I can only concur with the gratitude extended toward Tom (developer) for the many years of service to the Mac community. There is to my knowledge no thing like Tex-Edit Plus, nothing to truly replace it, and so I still resist moving beyond 10.13* due to the auspicious and awesome presence of TE+ in almost all my long established workflows. The script-ability plays a (perhaps *the*) major role in setting TE+ apart from other players; at one point I had to trim the script folder regularly, or TE+ would not load it upon launch... Later on that ceased to be an issue, but I still tend to loose track of useful scripts which I either recorded or stitched together from authors of far superior expertise. The one application I payed for several times, just *because*...! I refuse to miss it; sorry Mo' jove, Cavatina, Big Sis, whatever... it just was not meant to be... (* 10.14 accepts but imposes a monthly “complaint”, a “penalty” which I reject)

Tex-Edit Plus has always been one of my most important apps, so I’ve been concerned about the warnings I’m getting about the upcoming Catalina upgrade. I asked the developer if an update is in the works, and he told me on 2019-08-21 that currently, "I have no plans to move TEP out of the 32-bit niche."

It's all been said before. A wonderful, stable, dependable program. Just the "sort ascending/descending" tool is worth the price of admission. And now it's free? Almost criminal.

Thank you Tom for all your years of work on Tex-Edit! After all these decades, Tex-Edit Plus remains my default text editor of choice, where I write all my first drafts. Later, I play in the big layout applications. Highly recommended, as ever.

I have one of the first serial numbers ever issued to this program many years ago. I have loved it and the incredible personalized service Tom provides everyone who owns the app., since day one. You will never find anyone more dedicated to their craft and product than Tom Bender and Tex-Edit Plus. It does everything you want, and then some; and I've always thought of it more as a word Processor than a text editor. Full of options, tools, and will for me, always be the King Of Great TexEditors. A thousand thank you's Tom, for your great contributions to the Mac world of Desktop home computing!!

Really great app that doesn't take many resources but is quite powerful. I've used it for many years and it's been worth much more than I paid for it. I use it for almost all text editing work, especially cleaning up text for web sites. Please consider supporting the author--it's a wonderful piece of software.

Just an FYI, from the developer's site: "Tex-Edit Plus is Shareware ($15). Our software is not locked, crippled, time-limited, or ad-infested. Use Tex-Edit Plus for free as long as you like and only pay if you want to."

For the last two times, when I use the MacUpdate app to download a new version, for some reason, the app itself is not installed. I have to go and download it myself and then the app is in the applications folder.

I've just come across what I think is a bug in the file format used by TE: when synching two macs through network, the "crossed out" attributes inside a file are not copied! (I've tried many times and checked vs .doc files) I've checked saving the file from both stable 499 and béta 4912 (and opening it on the other mac with corresponding version).

Just a note that if you have "TextTools" installed (marsthemes.com), you will not be able to save (or close save dialogs) in Tex-Edit Plus (v4.9.9 & 4.9.12). Must be a conflict Text Tools has with the WASTE text engine.
