This tool can transform texts into a variety of formats/structures. It can assist tasks of data formatting and coding. Formatting steps can be stored and reused. The tool includes text-to-speech of various languages; it can be used for reading contents and practicing languages.
- Assist text copying and formatting:
- Similar to notepad, this tool can be used to de-format texts.
- You can quickly eliminate double space, double enter
- You can quickly solve indent or spacing problem
- Assist data formatting and coding.
- This app can be helpful to language learners or those who are preparing for presentations
- With TTS, this app can read texts or script for you in a variety of languages
With Transformer, you can save and load formatting steps; prepare once and later format everything in 1 click.
- Press “TRANSFORM” to do formatting based on given commands
- Commands are processed line by line.
- If you make mistake, you can redo by using Esc on the textbox of contents
- A sequence of formatting steps can be saved as “Formatter.” You can choose a formatter from a select box, and press “Insert” to paste content into the cursor point. You can click “Explore” to go to the storage folder.
Basic: basic formatting
- REPLACE [old text] BY [new text]
- ADD PREFIX [text]
For each line, add text at the beginning
- ADD SUFFIX [text]
For each line, add text at the end
- CROP AFTER [text]
For each line, get contents after the given text (if > 1, remove from the first)
- CROP BEFORE [text]
For each line, get contents after the given text (if > 1, remove from the last)
- CROP FROM [text]
For each line, get contents starting the given text (if > 1, remove from the first)
- CROP UNTIL [text]
For each line, get contents until the given text (if > 1, remove from the last)
- CUT [text1] TO [text2]
Remove all content between [text1] and [text2], such as removing all [..] from contents
- #toN FROM [number]
For example, given # = 1, “Hello# World#, How# are# You#” → “Hello1 World2, How3 are4 You5”
- #toN-L FROM [number]
Similar to the above, but the number reset for each line.
- Format commands: no need to put variable.
- Sort: sort line in alphabetical order
Char: use special character, such as [Tab] and new [NewLine]
Restore last session: restore text saved upon the last closing.

Vancouver2IEEE (APA Style): format a reference from Vancouver (obtained from Google Scholar) to IEEE, APA style (see an example below).
#1. Cut: useful as a pre-processing step before using text-to-speech (e.g., removing references)
In this example, I want to write codes for printing Kinect skeleton data.
I have joint names in this format
I want to print it as
txt += skeleton.Joints[JointType.Head].Position.X + “,” + skeleton.Joints[JointType.Head].Position.Y + “,” + skeleton.Joints[JointType.Head].Position.Z;
Here is how it can be done, with a help of this tool and a spreadsheet.
