Texts 1.4

Texts helps you create and edit documents using the Markdown file format.
 
1.4.2 (See all)

Texts is a simple word processor that helps you create and edit documents using the Markdown file format. The final document can be exported from within the application directly into PDF, HTML5, Word, Rich Text, or EPUB according to your needs and preferences.

The utility has a minimalist interface. Most editing tools are accessible from drop-down menus so that you can enjoy an uncluttered workspace. Yet, a handy tool bar can be displayed at your demand at the top of the main window in order to enable the editing features more easily. To make word processing more pleasant, the program supports changing its appearance by letting you choose among multiple attractive themes. The editing options offered by this app are comprehensive and rather different than those provided by similar text editors. Therefore, you can instantly apply styles to words or paragraphs, define headings and titles to preserve your custom alignments at document export, and insert formulas and tables, footnotes and codes, bibliography and citations, hyperlinks and images. Furthermore, the tool has the ability to check the spelling and display both character and word count.

To sum it up, Texts offers handy editing features to optimize your document for public viewing and custom reading, online sharing and uploading. Unfortunately, the program misses basic features, like changing font styles and character sizes. For fast text processing, most features can be enabled by using already-defined hotkeys.
