Miraplacid Text Driver 4.2 - Integrate incompatible software
Miraplacid Text Driver extracts text from a document. It can connect software with printing support to software with text import.
In the beginning software saved documents as plain text files. Then it used custom text and binary formats. Modern software tends to save everything to XML. We like to believe, that eventually XML will solve all the compatibility problems, but in the real World it does not going to happen soon. Old software and new software work together and old software requires old formats or even plain text files. If software does not have plain text export option, text extractor like Miraplacid Text Driver could be the only option to integrate it with the other software.
Miraplacid Text Driver extracts plain text or text with layout from documents. After installation on PC, Miraplacid Text Driver appears as a new printer in the system. All the documents printed to this "printer" will be previewed and processed by the Miraplacid Text Driver. User can edit extracted text, then save it to the hard drive, upload to a server or print.
When "Auto Save Mode" is turned on, Miraplacid Text Driver saves extracted text to a file without any user interaction. {{DATE}}, {{TIME}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{PAGE}} or {{JOB}} in the file name or path force every document to be saved to an individual file. These wild cards will be replaced with current date, time, some unique number, page number and print job id respectively.
Converting document to formatted text is not as simple as it seems. Graphic letters can have different width, which does not apply to text file where one symbol is one letter. Add here different font families, sizes and styles. Miraplacid Text Driver have improved text formatting algorithms and is optimized to work faster than previous versions.
Miraplacid Text Driver is integration-friendly. Text extraction and saving can be controlled by an external software or script. For not so rare cases when general purposes Text Driver does not fit the system, Miraplacid offers affordable custom solutions based on Miraplacid Text Driver and Publisher. Miraplacid Publisher saves extracted document as an image.
Miraplacid Text Driver 4.2 can be installed on Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and 2003.
