TCleaner free download for Mac


Version 1.1

Removes all text formatting.

TCleaner overview

TCleaner--the "little brother" of TCleaner Pro--is a practical utility for processing text, removing undesirable formatting when pasting from a Web page, e-mail, document or presentation. It removes all formatting from text on your clipboard, such as colour, font size, style, tables, hyperlinks, images, etc., leaving only plain text. All you need to do is copy and paste; TCleaner does the rest.

TCleaner is easy to learn for casual users, but also has the flexibility that serious users need. Choose your settings and it can run in the background. Here’s how it works--it's super simple! Check "Automatically clear formatting" to make the app take care of it every time you copy something. You can activate the feature manually with your own custom shortcut and you click it before you paste. We use it every day. This app is guaranteed to save you time and prevent headaches.
