'iText Pro '09' is just starting releasing, too!

iText Pro '09 is all new; it is neither part of nor an alternative to the 'iText & iTextPro' that came before. iText Pro '09 is compatible with iText Express, iText, iTextPro, and LightWayText documents.

iText is a Freeware program and the copyright of this software belongs to Michiaki Yamashita who is the author. Produced by Yumi

What's iTextPro ?

iTextPro is a greatly enhanced version of iText, which you can upgrade with Key-registration.

iTextPro is a delightful word processor, just right for most of your work. It is almost the same as LightWayText except for the advanced features including Macro, Word Services, importing and exporting Unicode format files (UTF8, UTF16), and Stream Editor, but is only for Macs. It has stability and lots of nice features selected from LightWayText.

iTextPro makes your charming words look lovely too !!

Editing operations are intuitive. You can work with big text documents of even more than 32 kbytes at very high speed. There are many ways to change the appearance of your document; besides styles, there are decoration lines, the ability to change all paragraph indents or margins, to paste in PICT or JPEG images, and to create spreadsheet-like tables. iTextPro even allows you to complex search with the 'Regular Expression' in addition to the normal expression's search.

iTextPro 3.1.1 onwards also supports importing and exporting Rich Text Format files (RTF) , and iText-X fully complies with Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard). iTextPro-X supports Unicodes (UTF8,16), including Japanese, European languages, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, and Turkish, also mathematical symbols, and is completely compatible with TextEdit in RTF too.

iTextPro can also provide many different layouts. Especially unusual is the Vertical Writing format of 'Tategaki' as in Japanese books, the basic Paper of Japanese Manuscript paper 'Genkou-Yousi'.
With a variety of Custom papers including Notepaper and Greeting card, you can start your original pages in your Westerners' style easily, also let iTextPro create back-up files automatically. Besides, there are other useful little goodies to play with, including a scheduler function for your day-to-day time management.

You will find that iTextPro is widely used, from programming to the writing of various documents, in any language not only English and Japanese
