More Reviews for Current Version
Works Now - I had given this a negative review, because of its inability to identify the formats on what were probably just mis-coded files. It works better with properly-enconded files.
I can’t get it to work, and can’t find support - I have hand trouble, and it is physically painful to scroll through the encoding options to try to find the right one. I can’t search, based on the intended script and/or the intended language. And so far I haven’t found the right one, if this even has it.
App won’t open & won’t Update - TEXT Converter app will not open on MAC. It tries to updated but never completes. Useless if it will not run
Very handy -- does what it says - Very handy utility for figuring out what the encoding is of a file. Particularly useful when converting to a new database, as you have to deal with various text files, spreadsheets, and the like, or unknown origin. I like that the app displays four reditions of the text, making it very easy to eyeball them and determine which one is correct. Two suggested improvements: 1. A find feature for the main window, as I sometimes know some words near the trouble spot, and for a long file (e.g., of CSV data) it's difficult to scroll through to find the spot I'm looking for. The find can work in ASCII, as far as I'm converned, since there's usually some ASCII around to hunt for. 2. Make the four little text views scroll synchronously with the main view. It's fine as it is, but, like all apps, it could be improved.
