Miraplacid Text Driver 2020 extracts text from any printable documents. After installation on your PC, Miraplacid Text Driver appears as a new printer in your system. When document is printed, Miraplacid Text Driver opens a dialog with Preview Window. You can save resulting text to file, upload to FTP or HTTP server, email it as a message text or attachment, print it to a real printer, or send to Clipboard.

Miraplacid Text Driver Preview Window Miraplacid Text Driver Settings Dialog

You can save the extracted information as plain, formatted text or as XML or RSS / Atom feed for future processing in all installed codepages and Unicode.

Miraplacid Text Driver adds an icon to the desktop. All the documents you drag and drop to this icon will be printed behind the scenes and processed by Miraplacid Text Driver. Turn "Auto Save Mode" on to handle text extraction and processing automatically, without waiting for your input, and without User Iterface.

Filenames and paths of the resulting files can be constructed using special tags:

{{TERMINAL}}, {{DOCNAME}}, {{EXT}}, {{USER}}, {{MACHINE}}, {{SYSFOLDER}}, {{PAGE}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{JOB}}, {{DATE}} or {{TIME}}

They will be replaced with appropriate values.

With "Redirect to" option, you can print original print job to your physical printer at the time of extracting text. It allows you to edit redirected print job in EMF format.

You can choose between Unix(LF) and Windows(CRLF) line breaks.

You can create multiple virtual text printers in your system, each with individual settings. If you need to save one document to disk file and send the other by email, just print the first to one virtual printer and the other - to the second virtual printer.

Text Driver works as an external "Save as" feature for printer-ready software systems which allows to extract text document content and send it to various destinations.

Miraplacid Text Driver supports text printing from DOS programs.

As a developer, you may control printing process from your own scirpt or program.

Miraplacid Text Driver can be uninstalled anytime.

Customers of versions 2015 and 2018 may upgrade for FREE, just reinstall Text Driver.
