There is a Font manager tool with quite a number of skins available under the Tools menu, as well as a portable version. The is an XML tab that lets you export CSV files to XML format with various options, while the Fixed Field Length Manager feature allows you to configure minimum and maximum field length, set values for all fields and checked fields, and likewise set the minimum space between columns. The records can be edited either with the aid of the 'Edit Form' tool or the 'Text Editor' tool, both of which are displayed at the same time on the table and are separated by a comma.

There are a wide variety of other actions that you can perform using the CSVed tools.

The application also provides basic options for column editing (edit, copy, add new), while enabling you to add random numbers, row numbers or empty rows.

Furthermore, you can easily join and split columns or split the whole table into several smaller CSV or TXT files as you choose. Adding prefixes and suffixes, inserting characters, change data width limit, append and merge files or detect and remove duplicate entries are other options that you have at your disposal to help you carry out file processing. 

Lastly, the application also allows you to filter the table information and save any of the filtered items to your computer; the table is also sorted in columns and are alphabetically arranged.
