TXT Document Format

TXT Converter

The TXT file format, also called the Plain Text File format, was developed by Tim Berners-Lee - the inventor of the World Wide Web. Unlike other document file types, such as .DOC, the TXT file format just stores plain text, so it can't contain complex formatting, images or other multimedia. TXT files are used to write memos, letters, manuscripts and other text-based content, as well as for encoding and storing data. Because of their simplicity, they don’t support formatting features such as font changes or colour edits, so if you want to make your file look a little more attractive you’ll need to use a different word processing application.

Part of the appeal of the TXT format is that the files are extremely small in size, easy to create, edit and share, and are compatible with almost any device and operating system. Apple’s Notepad and Microsoft’s TextEdit can both be used to create TXT files, and you can open TXT files with any text-editing application and most internet browsers.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

TXT files will open in most text editors, and you can usually use these to export a file as a PDF. However, you can also use file conversion tools like Zamzar. They are especially useful if you need to convert multiple files, or if you don’t want to open and save individual documents. You can convert from TXT to PDF by uploading files to the free tool on Zamzar’s website and selecting PDF format. You can then download your converted files.

There are several ways to convert text to PDF for free, including using file conversion software or online tools like Zamzar. You can upload one or more text files to the secure tool on Zamzar’s website, click to convert them to PDF and then download the new files when they’re ready.

If you want to convert individual files, another way is to open them with Microsoft Word or other text editor, and then use the ‘Save As’ menu function to save them as PDF files.

You can convert a TXT file by opening it in a text editor or word processing program and then saving the file into another format like PDF or DOCX. However, online file conversion tools like Zamzar are a quick way of converting multiple files without opening them. Simply upload one or more TXT files to the three-step tool on Zamzar’s website, select to convert them to another format like PDF and then download your files.

TXT files are a standardised format, so you should be able to open them with most text editors or word processing programs, including Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, and Apple Pages. While the file is open, it’s usually possible to save it as another format. If you don't have a suitable word processing problem, you could convert your file to a format like PDF using Zamzar or another file converter. Simply upload the file to Zamzar’s website, select PDF as the format to convert it to, and then download the converted file. PDF files will open on most devices, and they will also preserve the document text for sharing.

You can print a TXT file by opening it in a text editor or word processing program and then selecting ‘Print’ and sending it to a connected printer.

With Zamzar, you can convert files in just a few clicks – just upload the TXT file to the conversion tool on Zamzar’s website, select PDF from the list of file types, and then ‘Convert Now’ before downloading the new file.
