Complex text processors have a lot of editing tools that tend to distract you whenever you have to write down original content. Plain Text Editor is a minimalist Mac app that resembles the built in Mac OS X processor, but eliminates all editing tools from the main window and allows you to change the background color, among other things.

Unsophisticated design

The Plain Text Editor main window does not include any kind of button, tool, or customization option: the top bar retains the name of the document, and the window can be resized or minimized, but that is all.

Basic text editing tools

Plain Text Editor allows you to change the font style for your text and you can choose any of the supported designs via the Font menu. In addition, you can easily change the font size, going from 8 to 40 pixels. For the first 9 size entries, Plain Text Editor also provides activation hotkeys (Command + one of the 9 digits).

In addition, you can easily change the default app colors via the Plain Text Editor “Color” menu: the Foreground entry allows you to change the font color, while the Background option enables you to adjust the wallpaper shade.

Search and replace capabilities

Like most text editors out there, Plain Text Editor also includes search tools that allow you replace certain text strings or regular expressions. In addition, the application includes text wrapping functions that can be toggled using the Command+T keyboard combination.

Last but not least, Plain Text Editor comes with a spelling checker that offers support for multiple languages besides English: Castilian, Danish, Dutch, Flemish, French, German and more. Once you are satisfied with the results, you can save your projects as .txt files.

Straightforward text processing app

Plain Text Editor can prove to be very useful whenever you need to write down text without having to deal with complex tools, using a color palette of your own choice.
