Online tools: Textfixer and Text-Case Converter

Textfixer and Text-Case Converter are two of my favourite online tools – mostly because they’ve saved me hours of work (and sanity, because some people Like To Capitalise Everything).

Textfixer removed unwanted line breaks from text and converts it into text that’s free from any unwanted formatting, which is very handy especially when you’re taking copy from a PDF. I use this a lot when I’m uploading articles from the magazine.

It’s really simple to use – just copy and paste. The only downside is that fonts can sometimes convert into strange collections of characters when you take them from a PDF, and I haven’t yet found a tool to fix that problem (if you know of one, I’d be keen to hear about it).

Text-Case Convert does what it says on the tin. If you want everything UPPER CASE, lowercase, Sentence case or Title Case – then this is the tool for you.

What other handy tools do you use all the time? Let me know in the comments!
