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.

Morning folk, must say I agree with RedTed, I have just downloaded and unzipped the app. I am now the proud owner of a German app. Have tried to change the language, but it's a no go. I am running a 64bit Dell Inspiron, could be that it's only meant for 32bit systems???

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 am Baas on 8 Jun 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.

Warning, this one stays in Italian language :-/

Drone242 on 2012-03-15 18:29

@DeepAnger:
You need to modify the X-WinMerge.ini file to set the locale used on application start. Search this line:
WinMerge\Locale|"LanguageId"=dword:00000410
Replace the dword number with the one you need:
00000000 = "Language Neutral" (uses english on my box)
00000407 = German
00000409 = English
0000040c = French
00000413 = Dutch
0000041d = Swedish
00000c0a = Spanish

I've had this program on my computer for several years without having a real need for it. Knowing the nature of what it does and some of my projects, it was there just in case. Well, today I screwed up a script (evidently what one browser thinks is commented isn't something other browsers agree upon) and this helped me fix it quickly and easily. An excellent program.
