Editors' Review

If you spend a lot of time working with text files, you may find it handy to be able to combine multiple text files into one without a bunch of cutting and pasting. That's exactly what TXTcollector does. It's a simple program with a very specific purpose: to streamline the process if text files play a large role in your work or hobbies.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, just a small rectangle with a few menus and buttons. First, select the directory you want to scan for files and the file format you want to use. In addition to text files, TXTcollector can handle 11 other files formats, including HTML, XML, CSV, and others. Users then choose from among nine options for separators, lines of punctuation used in the finished document to demarcate the end of one of the original files and the beginning of another. Users can also create custom separators if desired, or use no separator at all. TXTcollector also lets you specify whether or not to include the original file names, omit carriage returns, or add spaces. Once you've configured everything to your satisfaction, just click the Combine all files button; the program will prompt you for a destination location and name for the file. We found TXTcollector to be extremely easy to use, and it performed just as expected. There's no Help file, but the interface makes everything pretty easy to figure out. Overall, we think that TXTcollector is a useful tool to have around if you need a quick way to turn multiple text files into one well-formatted document.

TXTcollector comes as a zip file. It installs and uninstalls without issues.
