Tex-Edit Plus
The Little App That Could

Click here to download Tex-Edit Plus, the best text editor I have found.

OK, so I have a problem with Microsoft. I'm not a fan of the company and its Big Brotherly, strong-arm tactics, or its bloated, resistance-is-futile software.

But as a freelancer with a fondness for regular meals, I must rely on Microsoft Word. That doesn't mean I have to use Word all the time. Or even most of the time. My ticket out of the Microsoft miasma: Tex-Edit Plus.

Clean it up!
Tex-Edit Plus is a sleek, snappy, user-friendly text editor that belongs on every Macintosh desktop. It's open on my iMac 24/7. During the 10 years I've used TE+, it has sprouted ever more bells and whistles; the enhancements, however, have never overwhelmed the program or sullied its uncluttered interface.

TE+ is indispensable for cleaning up any text, whether it's from a Web page, an e-mail, or (gasp!) a Word document. My best friend is the handy-dandy Cleanup Document function, which quickly removes gnarly and extraneous characters, both visible and invisible:

Tex-Edit Plus also handles all your basic formatting chores. And when you're done tidying up, you can output to any text format.

No party crasher
What can Word do that TE+ can't? Besides crash, you mean? Tex-Edit Plus doesn't do tables, track changes, mail merge-or Windows (pun intended). But who needs that stuff? Especially with all the fun, useful AppleScripts TE+ offers to banish repetitive-editing stress. Many AppleScripts (accessed from a pull-down menu) are already built-in; hundreds more are available as add-ons. My favorite script is one called Google Selection, which allows you to use selected text for a Google search. Oh, and customer service, should you need it, is fast and friendly.

Resistance is worthwhile.
