    Hi, I would like some help to find a software to deal with text.
    What I need is something that can edit and clean my text. It is quite difficult to explain, better go by examples:

    It exist something like this? What I should have to learn to be able to do this kind of operations?

    It's a little hard to explain, but if you do a little research, Word for Mac will do this using something called a macro. It's basically a little script that will perform these tasks for you automatically...some better information here:

    Of course, you will need to purchase Office for Mac. It's not that expensive these days....I can't think of another WP that will do this but others here may know.

    Thanks I will look into it. Other suggestions that I received are Text Edit plus & Text Wrangler, but I still have to search some documentation about it

    I'd forgotten about Text Wrangler, but I can't vouch for it personally..might be worth a look at though. It's bound to be cheaper than MS Office..:)

    Apps like Editorial on the iPad that support Python scripts can do this for you. I'm sure there is something similar available on the Mac.
