Sig Software is pleased to announce updates to its unique text editing utilities, Email Effects and TableText, both of which are available for OS 7/8/9 and as native Carbon applications for Mac OS X.
Email Effects is a program which allows plain text to be used for pictures and drawings. The ASCII art it creates can be used for email messages, source code comments and cross-platform documentation.
TableText is a sister program which allows tabular information to be represented, manipulated and scanned as plain text. With it, spreadsheets and tables can be converted to ASCII text and optimized with ease.
Both Email Effects 1.6.9 and TableText 1.0.7 add support for the Apple Mail email client that comes with OS X. TableText 1.0.7 also fixes communication with other email programs under OS X and optimizes screen updating when performing complex operations.
