Tom's eTextReader

Tom's eTextReader 1.9

Tom's eTextReader allows you to read plain text files in the form of a book
1.9.0 (See all)

Tom's eTextReader is a file management application that allows you to read and edit plain text files in a book-like style. Tom's eTextReader is a standalone program. The program has the ability to open text files directly from the Project Gutenberg zip file, and also import RTF and HTML files, which is actually a new feature. The user interface has been considerably improved, but it still looks unattractive. Like in the previous version, the program allows you to change the font type and size, fort and background color, set bookmarks, adjust margins, search for words or phrases within the text, edit the text and create a table of contents automatically among others things. Other improvements and new features include the ability to append/join multiple files, more control options, more file formats including MS Word and Palm Doc, a new editor, additional book information stored and more. The help file has also been improved and updated. It supports Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista. Moreover, it is free of charge.
