Still ★★★★★. TextSoap is a core app for me—★★★★★. It works. I use it in conjunction with Keyboard Maestro Palettes and macOS Services to store text in Bear, Drafts, DEVONthink 3, Scrivener ... to format Book and News Article ... to create custom PDFs using Nisus Writer Pro that are then annotated on an iPad PDF app ...

TextSoap is my goto app for quickly changing text. I use it weekly, if not daily, to convert cases, smarten/straighten quotes, sort lines ascending/descending, remove extra spaces, change line breaks... TextSoap does it all in the flash of a second. The application has become ever more powerful over the years, now featuring numerous ways to customize cleaners based on personal preferences and needs, and the developer is very helpful. Highly recommended.

TextSoap is seriously one of those apps anyone struggling to reformat text needs! I use it to strip out weird formatting. It uses the REGEX find/replace language so if you need to do something there is a way. For most folks just learn enough to create a couple of scripts to do what you need. Two companion apps you'll probably use is Excel/Numbers for sorting and PopClip (they have a TextSoap extensions) for quick copy/paste cleanups. The support forum is a Google Groups that is pretty helpful. The app could benefit from a PopChar font function to show extended characters. Struggled with figuring out how to search on keyboard items like the "TAB" - which really should be in help and in Find/Replace dialog. The running query of paragraphs, words and characters is useful! Would be nice if there was an online library for sharing scenarios and scripts that solve a problem, along with a service where you could pay a few bucks to have someone create a script for your custom scenario.
