Text Cleaner is the tool used by graphic designers, editors and web designers, to reduce text cleanup time to seconds. Em and en dashes, smart quotes and ligatures are set or removed, unwanted spaces, tabs, returns are eliminated, making search-and-replace prep work a thing of the past.
Unlike search and replace, there’s no need to perform tasks several times over. Users can click once and all cleaning functions are performed simultaneously and in the best possible sequence.
Text Cleaner is flexible so users can copy text from just about anywhere, clean the copied text and paste it back in, or to another location. Users can clean one file or batch process and can create batch sets for drag-and-drop. Users can select text within an open InDesign (or InCopy) or QuarkXPress document and clean it on the spot.
All operations are performed in one pass, eliminating multiple search and replace jobs and the best possible cleaning sequence is used to avoid conflicts. Context sensitive rules analyze content and act accordingly and presets allow settings to be saved for quick access and import/export between workstations.
