The Tool for Design and Editing Pros

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. Typesetting marks and more are set in an instant.

Unlike search and replace, there’s no need to perform tasks several times over. Click once and all cleaning functions are performed simultaneously and in the best possible sequence.
