Tex-Edit Plus
Tex-Edit Plus

Welcome to Tex-Edit Plus, my scriptable, styled text editor that fills the gap between Apple's bare-bones SimpleText and a full-featured word processor! It is particularly useful for formatting text that is transmitted over the Internet. Tex-Edit Plus is small, fast, easy-to-use and requires little memory. Tex-Edit Plus is Shareware ($10).


With Tex-Edit Plus you can:

  • Quickly create, edit and print styled text documents of any size (limited by RAM).
  • View and print TeachText or SimpleText read-only ("ReadMe") documents.
  • Easily create TeachText/SimpleText read-only documents, including embedded pictures.
  • View and print color PICT files, such as those produced by draw programs or Apple's built-in screen snapshot utility.
  • Copy a selection from a PICT file, cropping the image for use in the company newsletter.
  • View, edit and print text documents created by virtually any word processor or computer.
  • Reformat downloaded e-mail or text, correcting word-wrap problems and removing extraneous, non-Mac characters.
  • Prepare text for upload to a BBS, so that people with MS-DOS systems can view the document as it was intended to be viewed.
  • Instantly quote a brief passage from received e-mail, allowing the sender to remember their original message.
  • Explore the power of AppleScript.
  • Read any text document aloud, if you have Apple's Speech Manager extension. (Listen to a SimpleText read-only file, for example, as the text and pictures scroll by!)
  • Quickly optimize a document for printing, replacing generic, typewriter-era characters with professional-looking typographically correct text.
  • Create simple hypertext documents.
  • Insert attention-getting sound annotations to spice up ordinary inter-office mail.
  • And more…
