Description
There are many text editors out there, and not all of them have the text-manipulation functions that you always want or need.  TextWorx is designed to give you a slew of text-manipulation functions at your disposal for whatever text editor you wish to work with.  It has a universal context menu and custom toolbar/s that you open with a hotkey.  First select your text, then call the menu, then the function that you wish to run against that text.

I've longed to share it for a very long time and have been working on and off with it for over 8 years.
Take a look at the online help (although it comes with the same help as a local chm file); there are screenshots, credits and version history there.

Default Global hotkeys (but you can customize them)
win+K to show the menu
win+shift+K to toggle the toolbar

After you have the menu open (or when you push a toolbar button):

* hold shift to reverse the effect (in many cases)
* hold control to work the effect on each line in the selection
* hold control+shift to do both.

For example, if you want to encase a word in double-quotes, just select the text, then select the function from the menu.

* To remove double-quotes, hold shift when you select the function.
* To encase each line in double-quotes, hold control when you select the function.
* To remove double-quotes from each line, hold control+shift when you select the function.
Features
Universal context menu for text editors. 

* Use either Menu or Toolbar - both are completely customizable
* Over 150 commands - many are unique to TextWorx
* Completely customizable global hotkeys for Menu, Toolbar and for ANY Command
* Modify single words, or multiple lines.
* Easily comment and uncomment code.
* Quickly create html ordered/unordered lists and inserting html tags.
* Number and renumber lines (complete with padding and custom number parameters).
* Sort lines.
* Insert preset text snippets and characters.
* Insert the date in multiple fashions.
* Quickly convert slashes.
* Toolbar buttons for cut, copy paste using two clipboards
* Paste as Text, and Send selection to Notepad
* Search and Replace multiple criteria - example: replace all State abbeviations with their names (and vice versa).
* Authour takes requests for new commands (the most fun part of it all)

This seems very interesting and useful, I am waiting for the download link.

skwire:
Agreed, looks quite useful.  Looking forward to it.   :Thmbsup:

This reminds me of Boxer Software's Text Monkey (complete feature list here), and its alternatives, see e.g. the alternativeTo listing.  I particularly liked WOTS Clippy, but both programs are old now, and the author of Clippy has disappeared from the Web.  However, your program has different features than these, despite overlap.
