run in Microsoft Word, making it do any number of things it couldn't ordinarily
handle, such as finding and replacing multiple items, cleaning up common
editorial problems, and extracting embedded footnotes. All of our programs
include batch processing, letting you do in minutes what used to take hours.

finished files ready for typesetting.

variety of other tools to make working with notes a snap.

pages, and characters in the active document, all open documents, or all

If you're tired of messing with XE codes and bookmarks, you need

ListFixer converts automatic numbers
and bullets into fixed numbers and bullets—or vice versa—for lists

lists with real numbers in a
flash. If you're tearing your hair out over automatic lists, you need

strings (characters, words, or phrases), text formatting, or styles in multiple
documents. The perfect tool for achieving complete consistency in a manuscript
or for cleaning up all kinds of errors in one fell swoop. Don't waste your time
making the same old editorial changes over and over again. Let MegaReplacer do
it for you!

documents in a folder. The ultimate in batch processing with Microsoft Word.
Puller copies delimited items (such as
parenthetical source citations or typesetting codes) from the active document,
all open documents, or all documents in a folder. It pastes the items into a
new document, sorts them alphabetically, and deletes duplicates, leaving you
with a comprehensive list of the delimited items in your project. You can use
the list to compile a bibliography, create a typesetting spec sheet, and so on,
depending on the delimited items you specified.
RazzmaTag finds Microsoft Word
formatting and tags it with user-defined codes—or vice versa—in an
open document, all open documents, or all documents in a folder. It's the
perfect tool for tagging Word files for typesetting programs such as
QuarkXPress, Ventura, or TeX—or for turning tagged files into formatted

People Are Saying (Unsolicited Comments)
"I have used FileCleaner, NoteStripper, ListFixer, and MegaReplacer for years and LOVE them. I couldn't do my editing work without them. Thank you!" —Terese P., Canaan, New York.
"Your book is a true gold mine and, as a writer, I know what it means." —Dominique M.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your tools are simply INDISPENSABLE!" —Jennifer B.
"I used NoteStripper a number of times. . . . Good GOLLY it was a lifesaver! So was ListFixer!" —Laura P., Raleigh, North Carolina
"I'm delighted by the way you're creating tools and instructions to make publishing more efficient." —Karen C., Great Barrington, Massachusets.
"Useful? Far, far more
than that. Essential. Sanity-maintaining. Fundamental. Something along those
lines. Thanks again!" —Peter L., Arlington, Virginia.
"I'm crazy about
Editor's Toolkit Plus! Greatest thing since Velveeta. I recommend it every
chance I get." —Craig T., Annapolis, Maryland.
"I was prepared to go to great lengths to get Editor's ToolKit Plus going
for this next project, and I am delighted
that I will have it on my primary computer! (By the way, I am not always this
enthusiastic about so-called editorial timesavers—one press that I work
for has a complex set of custom macros put together by an outside vendor that I
refuse to use—I'll still work for them, but only on pencil edits. Your
stuff is elegant: it does what it says it will do, well.)" —Deborah
"Thank you for MultiMacro! What a great product! Just now wrote some
macros and ran them successfully against a folder's worth of manuscripts. I
could cry I'm so grateful. You've made my day." —Melissa B.,
Chester, New York
"These are the very best add-ons I have ever bought—I use them all
the time, and love them! Thank you so much!" —Laura L., Mesa,
"I have been using FileCleaner for the past few months, and it is a
fabulous, indispensable program. I really can't imagine working without
it." —Elizabeth C., North York, Ontario
"I'm amazed at what you have put together and make available to others!
What a wonderful resource!" —Terry Y., Belleville, Illinois
"I certainly like your Editor's Toolkit Plus. It is great stuff and fully
worth the price." —Richard O., Geneva, Switzerland
"I just used NoteStripper for real for the first time and it worked like a
charm. . . . NoteStripper is the answer to my prayers. Thank you!"
—Barbara S., Ithaca, New York
"I hope you're swamped with incoming money for FileCleaner—I have
been using it non-stop since I got it!" —Wayne T., Slovenia
"People ask how I can underbid my competition by so much. I just smile and
tell them I have some special programs to help me." —Patricia P.,
Salt Lake City, Utah
"Thanks for NoteStripper; what an amazing program. . . . I took most of
yesterday to do 'The Wars of The Jews' by Flavius Josephus. It had text-only
footnotes at the end of each chapter. . . . After Notestripper made the
footnotes . . . Word obligingly renumbered them all, etc. I ended up with
hundreds of footnotes in a very large book—all perfect." —Doug
C., Edina, Minnesota
"With a small amount of effort in creating the macros, I was able to
complete this sophisticated project [with MultiMacro] on almost 100 files in a
small amount of time. Thanks again!" —Joe Z., Atlantic Highlands,
"After reading a post about your programs on the Editorial Freelancer
Association's list serv, I downloaded an evaluation copy of Editor's Toolkit
Plus, and ran a few tests with it on some files I'm getting ready to edit. And
all I have to say is WOW! I think I'm in love! (With the program, that is =)
What a timesaver; this is awesome! You can bet I'll register my copy when my 45
days are up. Thanks for developing a program that allows editors to concentrate
on our great love—THE WORDS—without getting all hung up on all that
other junk!" —René S., Golden, Colorado
Doug Clapp, who makes wonderful books for Microsoft Reader at PocketPCpress,
posted the following unsolicited testimonial on his Web site. We blush to
We now interrupt this boilerplate stuff to praise Jack
Lyon [proprietor of the Editorium].
If Jack didn't exist, many of the books on this site
wouldn't exist. Oh, they might exist in time, but their creation would have
been much much harder. Maybe even "too hard"; I'm not sure. It's like
this. Turning text into a Microsoft Reader eBook usually involves lots of
formatting, editing, munging and messing with text and punctuation. It's often
a sweaty three-way bout between me, the text and Microsoft Word.
I usually win the match (not always, but usually) thanks
in large part to tools that Jack Lyon makes. Jack is quite simply the Microsoft
Word Jedi Master. Obi-Jack.
Jack creates and sells (very reasonably!) collections of
macros that automate tasks in Word that would be hard to do "by
hand"—and in some cases, just flat out wouldn't be possible to do.
Amazing things. Incredibly useful. Priced right. And really really fast.
His tools can be found on his quite civilized website:
editorium.com. If you use Word to do your job, like me, and have wished that
Word "could only do this or only do that" . . . check it out. And you
can also sign up for a free weekly newsletter of tips and tricks for Microsoft
Word. Betchallearnalot. Great stuff.
