Intelligent Text Cleaning
TextSoap is a tool designed to easily scrub up your text, ridding you of those annoying forwarding marks, invisible characters, and poor formatting that you often find in email and long text documents.
From cleaning text snippets in email messages, to scrubbing long documents, TextSoap makes it easy for all users of text-based software to quickly and effectively reuse information. TextSoap provides the clean, familiar user interface you've come to expect from Mac OS X software and integrates with a variety of applications.
Garbled Text In - Clean Text Out
Find and remove unwanted, extraneous, text. Clean up emails scattered with forwarding marks or make clean paragraphs out of hard to read, broken lines of text, all with a simply click.
TextSoap works not just on email, but any any text you might work with, including from the web, a Word document from a co-worker who put a return at the end of each and every line, or output from some mainframe database that you need to convert.
Keep Your Fonts
TextSoap is the only text cleaning utility that maintains formatting while it cleans up the underlying text. Most other "Text cleaning apps" only work with plain text. Remove extra spaces or garbage characters without losing the format of your text.
Or Work With the Styles
You can also format text based on its content. For example:
Find bolded text and tag the text with HTML tags ().?Find any instances of a word and italicize it.?Even convert simple rich formatting to a clean, CSS-friendly, HTML.
Though TextSoap comes with more than 100 built-in cleaners, sometimes you have a special situation. TextSoap can build customized cleaners providing a powerful, yet simple, way to help clean up your special case.
TextSoap includes a Custom Cleaner Editor to help you create customized solutions for modifying your text. The editor uses a simple drag and drop interface to build up a list of actions into a simple workflow to change your text. It also includes regular expression support that works with both rich text and plain text.
TextSoap features a powerful cleaner called "Scrub". Scrub is a combination cleaner that is designed to handle the most common text cleaning tasks. It will remove extra spaces, fix broken paragraphs, remove email forwarding marks (>) and more. The goal of the Scrub cleaner is to clean up about 90% of the cases you run into under normal circumstances.
With more than 100 built-in cleaners and your own custom cleaners, you may want to organize the cleaners a bit differently. TextSoap lets you create custom collections of cleaners called "Groups". With Groups, you can determine which cleaners to include and in what order. Add in labels and separators to organize within a group. Whether it is just your favorite collection of cleaners or ones geared towards specific tasks, organize TextSoap to meet your needs.
Zero Commute - Work In Your Favorite App
Along with a full featured text editor, TextSoap also integrates with your favorite applications using a variety of plugin options. TextSoap can work directly with your text in Apple Mail, TextEdit, Eudora, Pages, MS Word, TextWrangler, BBEdit, Coda, and much more.
Through OS X Services, you can use TextSoap's cleaners without leaving the application. The shortcut menu module allows many applications to add TextSoap's cleaners to their shortcut (control-click) menu.
TextSoap also has application-specific plugins for BBEdit, TextWrangler, Eudora, and Coda. These plugins are designed specifically for these applications -- taking advantage of additional integration options offered by the programs.
Auto and the AppleScripter
TextSoap also supports both AppleScript and Automator ("Hello Auto") integration. Take full advantage of TextSoap's features in your workflows or scripts.
TextSoap can now easily be scripted to clean up text within an AppleScript, provide a full interface to integrate into scriptable apps or to just clean up the clipboard.
TextSoap offers two Automator actions. One is designed to apply TextSoap's cleaners to text within a workflow, the other is designed to process text files using a workflow. The "Clean Text Files" action lets you create a simple batch processing workflow that takes full advantage of TextSoap.
