This technique works best when you want to preserve the physical appearance of a document, such as an old, sentimental love letter.

It also works well in situations in which only humans -- not computers -- are going to read the documents. If you need the handwriting to be recognized as text, you'll need to take an extra step. Scan your papers as before, but this time save them as PDF files.

Then use "optical character recognition" OCR software to recognize the handwriting as text and convert it into machine-readable text. After the OCR software converts the handwriting, you can open the new files in Word and do a little light editing to catch any mistakes that the OCR software made. Word lets you take a stylus, pen or even your own finger and write directly on the screen of a touch-sensitive tablet.

If you choose this route, you can dispense with paper altogether, skip the scanner and go directly from your own handwriting to a Word file. The only caveat is that you need a tablet.

If you don't have any specific handwritten documents and just want the flavor of a handwritten note -- while still enjoying the convenience of typing -- you can create a custom font from your very own handwriting. You'll need a good ink pen with a fine tip, as well as a scanner and printer, and you're ready to go.

If you want to replace some texts in several files, if some test passages should be deleted, if files should be joined or splitted or converted into another format, you can always use the Text Converter. It is conceivable, for example, that a website owner or web designer wants to write the same header at the top of many text files or would like to replace an old note with a new one. Another example could be a writer or a programmer that require similar tasks.

It is rather cumbersome, to open all files to modify and change them by hand. Even by using the "Find and Replace" function of traditional programs, we come quickly to its limits. Not many programs support, for example, replacing text across multiple lines, or many replacements simultaneously and even in more than one files.

Also functions like the usage of regular expressions, inserting constants like file name or file size, line numbers or sorting lines can not be found in any editor. That and much more makes can be done by the Text Converter, that can be downloaded on this page. Besides the function "Find and Replace", there are for example functions to delete lines or text passages, functions to insert text at user-defined positions for example at the beginning or the end of a file or at a line , but also functions for changing case, inserting line numbers, sorting text or changing special characters in your HTML coding Named Entities.

Alone this function can very helpful for web designers. Behind working on text files, now also the On The Fly Conversion is available. This function allows you to use the complete functionality of the TextConverter without opening a file. Furthermore it is possible to hang an arbitrary number of text files on each other to save them as a single file. But also the opposite way can be gone using another function.

So it is possible to separate files at a special text or a regular expression to save them as several new files. At all positions where it is usefull, the Text Converter also supports regular expressions , so that there are lots of other possibilities to use this software.
