First Steps

In the first steps you will learn all about the basic functions of the TextConverter and how to change and convert your first texts and text files with the TextConverter.


Texts and text files can be edited in the TextConverter with a variety of actions. You can find an explanation of all available actions on the pages about text actions (actions that work on the text as a whole), line actions (actions that work with lines), CSV actions (actions that edit text within a CSV structure), XML actions (actions that edit text within an XML structure) and file actions (actions that work on the file level).

Action Lists

You can combine multiple actions of any number and in any order as Action Lists. These make it possible to easily use a bundle of actions at the same time and to save them for future applications. We explain how this works in the tutorial about Action Lists in the Text Converter.

Edit Files via the Command Line or by Script

The TextConverter can also be used to edit files via the command line or by script. In that batch mode of the TextConverter, you can use all actions that you can also use via the graphical user interface of the program. This also includes the use of Action Lists. An introduction to this topic with many examples and an overview of all available parameters can be found in the tutorial about the script control of the Text Converter.
