Editors' review

Text Master is a basic text editor that offers a few more features than similar programs like Microsoft's Notepad. Although Text Master is not a full-fledged word processor, it's a nice, slightly more powerful alternative to other text editors.

Like most programs of this type, the interface is plain and fairly sparse, with a couple rows of small buttons across the top representing its major features. Not all of these were easily recognizable, so we were grateful for mouse-over tool tips. For the most part, the program was easy to use, at least when it came to its basic features; we could specify a font and background color, use the find-and-replace function, and so on. We especially like that the program provides an analysis function, allowing users to see a word count and other characteristics of their text. Although the fact that the program provides more-advanced features is one of the things that we like about it, not all of them make sense, and the program's lack of Help file makes matters worse. We turned on the program's KeyPress Simulator, for example, and couldn't figure out what it was for or how to turn it off. Some of the program's potentially useful filtering features were similarly unclear. This is a shame, because we feel that Text Master has the potential to meet the needs of users who desire a more powerful text editor, if only it explained itself a little better.

Text Master is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users; although not all of its features are clear, it still offers more flexibility than the average text editor.

    "Analyze Text not what I was looking for"

    March 27, 2014   |   By mmm2006

    Version: Text Master 1.50

    Pros

    Looks like a nice, simple word processor, but I really didn't put it through its paces. I was looking mostly at the text analysis feature.

    Cons

    You can't sort according to word frequency, which, to me, is the main purpose of analyzing a text for word frequency. I want to know what my overused words are. I saved it as a .csv file and tried to open it with Excel, but it wouldn't open up properly in Excel (they use a semi-colon as a delimiter).

    Summary

    Not what I needed, but others may find it useful. The problem with not being able to open the .csv might be my fault; I used know how to import into Excel and define the delimiters, but I can't see where to do that in Excel 2013.

    "Good little text tool"

    December 11, 2009   |   By pacificwalter

    Version: Text Master 1.50

    Pros

    The main reason I give it 5 stars is because it runs a lot faster than ms word and has lots of functions. Maybe the best improvement of Notepad.

    Cons

    Like all the other text tools I have seen, it does not have a function to sort a list by length (which I would use). Otherwise a great free program.

    Summary

    Maybe the best text editor Ive found so far.
