It actually supports unicode now in the new version at least since version 1.1 Nov 6, 2010.

MuseTips 2010-11-10 01:27

Text Filter v1.1 supports below text encodings:

- Unicode (with BOM)
- Unicode Big Endian (with BOM)
- UTF-8 (no BOM)
- UTF-8 (with BOM)

Very interesting tool but at least CTRL+C should be enabled in order to copy the filtered result into memory. Without such functionnality (or similar) it sounds a little bit useless to me... :-(
Look forward this funtionnlity in the next release.
Keep up the good work MuseTips !

The author is currently, for some reason, just CONSTANTLY incrementing the version number (multiple times a day) with no actual changes to the code. If you compare different versions of the executable with an hex editor, you will notice only a few bytes are changing, those of the version and date.

@MuseTips, Thanks for Text Filter, I've updated the entry for Unicode support.

i like this... not sure how much i'll use it though. But it's like voidtool's everything for text files lol.

Checker 2010-12-07 18:10

What is changed ... except the version number?

Captain Fredo 2011-02-06 23:36

Has anyone a further comment about the version number ?
I mean if really no change is made except version number,
it seem a bit funny to me... harmless, though I guess ?!

Ruby 2011-02-07 14:45

The last 3 updates; when compared in a Hex Editor, show version # and date changes only.

Baas 2011-02-09 13:53

MuseTips does not respond to enquiries re. his frequent version # updates and does not provide change log. Please only update this database entry only when an actual update to the software is evident.

Baas 2011-02-10 08:46

Guess what? Version released (10 Feb.). Again just version # change.

Baas 2011-02-12 08:12

You are running behind... version released February 12.

Checker 2011-02-12 08:46

@ Baas
Thanks, but this is really boring. This is the uselessed update of the whole db.
Nothing changed ... except the version number.

Chris 2011-02-18 08:13

Curious - if it is only a version number change, why is the database still updated each day with a new version number (the RSS has shown a daily update for this program for the last week)?

Baas 2011-02-18 09:00

Could be because Checker is bored :)

Baas 2011-02-18 09:04

V1.1.0.531 available... you slacker :-)

Chris 2011-02-18 09:52


LOL :)

Checker 2011-02-18 14:52

@ Baas and @ Chris:
I reduced the db version number to 1.1 (according version history).


Ruby 2011-02-19 17:55

Thank you!


Ja 2011-05-16 23:55

Nice app. I just wish you could edit, or at least copy and paste.


bamanzi 2011-05-17 04:09

Again, I didn't see any changelog. Anyone know what has been fixed or improved in this version?

I want to use it as an lightweight replacement of `hidesearch' extension of Emacs, but lacking of select/copy keeps me away.


Chris 2011-05-18 09:13

That's two days in a row the RSS shows updates for this program - please don't start the 'daily updates with no actual changes' thing again. If it actually has some changes, fine - but the author has shown he will update the version number and nothing else just to get it bumped up on this site.


ale 2011-05-24 15:47

For the updates... please read the explanation here: :)


webfork 2011-05-24 18:33

Chris: a filter is in place to avoid too many updates, but its up to the author how they want to release their software. Daily releases are common in some circles and don't imply the updates aren't worthwhile.


Chris 2011-05-25 08:48

A version number bump and nothing else is dishonest, it's just used to increase a software's ranking. As I said above, if there is an actual change - fine. But if you read above my last comment you will note that the author was just changing the version number and nothing else. If we could exclude apps from the RSS read, I'd do that - but I get sick of seeing the same program day after day after day listed in the feed.


webfork 2011-05-25 17:53

Chris: As user "ale" pointed out, its more than just a number change. You're welcome to add to the forum topic if you disagree with the current policy on this.


Midas 2014-06-04 08:53

@Baas: I stand corrected, misleading comment deleted. :)
