Clean Text is an application for those times when you have to paste some text copied from one document or application into another, and you want the text to get the attributes (such as color, font, dimension and style) of the new document instead of preserving the attributes copied from the old one. Clean Text for Mac eliminates all text formatting, preparing it for pasting.

Clean Text is terrific. Use it with great success (and very often)

Just wanted to note that the System requirements listed here on MacUpdate (10.5) are not correct for this version. The last version that worked with OS 10.5 was CleanText 6.5.1.71

Be careful when upgrading from 6.5 to 6.5.1. Apimac has changed the registration scheme, and now requires a key file instead of (or in addition to?) the license number. They will give you a code to get the key file for free, but you have to contact support and it's an inconvenience.

Interesting: Apimac site lists the retail as $19.99. MacZot special in my inbox lists the retail price as $49.99. MacZot website lists the retail price as $29.99. Here (MacUpdate) it is listed as $24.99. Wow!

BTW- MacZot sale price today is $9.99

I like this software. It delivers what it promises. The window though, has a few limitations which make me cringe.

I'm on a MacBook, so the screen real estate is not as big as a desktop mac. Upon launch, the app will have a default size that does not remember its previous size. This size, which I have no control of, goes larger than my screen real estate, which makes it impossible to resize and use. Some of the functions were under my docK! Because of this issue, I have to get another window resizing app just to properly size the window.

Also, there's no reason to have such a large minimum width limit. Please allow it to scale down gracefully.

If the above issues are addressed, this app will be a 5-star product.

I have tested TextSoap and Clean Text and settled on Clean Text because it's cheaper.
They offer more or less the same functionality but TextSoap wins: it's more simple to write your own actions and the services are more useful than those of Clean Text.

However: Clean Text offers all I need out of the box. I don't mind opening the app and make all the tweaks I need in the app. If you want to automate everything and don't mind paying more (and enjoy a more refined interface) you will like TextSoap more.

Just wondering how Clean Text compares to TextSoap?

Does anyone have any feedback to contribute based on experience with both applications?

They priced themselves out of a sale. I use this program quite a bit and finally justified paying $15 for it. I went to buy it and now the price is $19.95. I'll pass.

I have to agree with you. The application itself is great. I've been a registered user for quite some time. $24.95 is way too much money for this kind of app though. Should be priced at $15 max.

They seem to be on some sort of price hiking spiral.

Even though there have been NO UPDATES since march of 2007, they have raised the price yet again ...

was $15, then 20, then $25, now its up to $35. With no improvements. I really don't know what they are thinking. The product may be OK, but if all their development effort is limited to updating the product price list, well, not a good sign.

(I guess we can expect version 5.0.0.0 to be priced at about $50 or so by end of 2008)

Since it was the MacUpdate Promo today, I downloaded and tried the latest version of Clean Text.

I gave it a fairly thorough run through and found nearly no changes to the version I currently own and use (3.4.1).

I agree with you, I don't know what the heck this company has been doing with their products other than raising their prices.

No thanks.

At $15 I feel it's overpriced a bit, but I've tried all the rest and inevitably when I need to clean up an eMail before I fwd I find myself downloading this little jem and waiting though the required reminder-ware notice. No funky instalation or preferences and it works out-of-the-box without having to read the directions - just like a Mac!
