Product Announcement – Tension Software of Milano, Italy has released To Text Converter 1.4 for macOS. To Text Converter can convert files from various formats (PDF, HTML, RTF, RTFD) to standard plain TEXT.

To Text Converter works creating new text files near the original files or inside a selected folder as specified in the preferences (original file are untouched) The newly created files will contain, in text format, the perfectly readable textual content of the original files. The original files will be always left untouched to never damage your previous work.

Useful to extract text, cleaning it from format text and various language code, in case of web pages, PDF, RTF and RTFD files. Obtained text, can be used for any purpose because it is always ‘clean’ with no code inside and ready to use in any other application. It can be used as pre-processor for applications such as Data Extractor to extract data from PDF and insert them in database.

It can process many files at once, dropping them on the ‘To Text Converter’ main window in a single step, in that case it will save more files each with the relative text inside. It always shows in the window path to the converted and created files.
