Vancouver, Washington – Unmarked Software today announced the release and immediate availability of TextSoap 8.1, a significant update to its macOS text processing tool, bringing user interface improvements, and adding significant new features based on customer feedback.
Inserting regular expression meta-characters is now easier than ever. The new options are available for all find and replace fields, either in the text editor window or with custom cleaners. In addition to common sequences for returns, tabs, and digits, TextSoap 8.1 offers support for Unicode properties, capture and quantity. “The new insert special button is another step forward in helping customers work with the complexity of regular expressions,” said Mark Munz, developer of TextSoap.
The new search history feature gives users access to the last 25 searches, making it straightforward to convert interactive searches into custom cleaner find and replace actions.
QuickClean provides a quick way to associate shortcuts to a collection of cleaners. Users can select a custom or built-in group to have the shortcuts (cmd-1 thru cmd-9) associated with the first 9 cleaners.
Additional improvements include a more traditional toolbar for text edit windows, a new text editor preference tab and appearance preference tab, dynamic text field sizing for find and replace custom cleaner actions, and an improved mechanism for defining TextSoap Menu global shortcuts.
TextSoap 8.1 also adds the following new cleaners:
* Fix up macOS name to rename “Mac OS X”, “OS X” to “macOS”
* Reverse Line Order
* Remove All Spaces
* Remove All Whitespace
TextSoap is the premier tool to automate tedious text document cleaning. Automatically remove unwanted characters, fix messed up carriage returns, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Life is too short to do this stuff by hand.
* US English
* Requires macOS 10.10 or later
