AutoText offers in a small tooltip window saved words, texts, phrases, snippets, etc. during typing in any other program and will insert the selected item directly to the cursor position. In case of unsuccessful search, Space, Return, PgUp, PgDn etc. closes the small window, so that fast and liquid typing is not disturbed. Three different search methods can be set.

In addition AutoText monitors the clipboard and saves the last X text entries of the clipboard, which can then be retrieved as well.

PhraseExpress normally auto-adapts to the language set in the regional settings of Microsoft Windows.

Here is a step-by-step procedure how to set PhraseExpress to English language:

This also disables the automatic language detection. Hope, this helps.

I'm using the latest version of PhraseExpress Portable on XP Pro, but it's putting two files (config.xml and pexdesktop.xml) into my Documents and Setting/Application Data/PhraseExpress folder.

Is there any way to change where these files are stored, so that the true portability of this application can be made?

Please read above "How to extract"
Start de programm with the -portable parameter

Textreme v2.8

Checker on 6 Aug 2014

Textreme is a Text remodelling engine that lets you remodel text and modify its appearance. You can delete blanks, move or insert words, and otherwise modify text. Great for updating text files with lots of minor changes that would be manually tedious, the program offers a variety of string-based functions (deleting sections, inserting into a specific place, switching bits around, etc.) for text files. There are currently nine different actions that can be performed in various ways and actions can be cascaded in so that many changes can be made in a single pass.

Tip: Use "TextEditor="dummy\..\..\PathToYourEditor.exe" to specify an editor with relative path in Textreme.ini.

What's new?
  • The Change Case func-tion has been moved from the General Set-tings area into the function list meaning this can be done at any stage rather than only before or after the other functions in the list. This also means that the size of the main window has been reduced back to 800 x 615 to better serve low-resolution screen users.
  • File drag-and-drop has been implemented (see help file)
  • Bug fixed in the Insert function when Before or After string is not in the text line.
