TextMan icon


Select, Detect, And Paste

TextMan lets you select any text on your screen and puts it into your clipboard.

Select a region of your screen by creating a rectangle with your mouse and get all text inside of it detected instantly by OCR. The text is put into your clipboard so that you can paste it with CMD+V everywhere.

Use it to avoid irritating selection behavior on web pages and documents.


  • Precise selection of the screen rectangle
  • Instant text recognition
  • No internet connection required
  • Privacy first: everything locally and only in memory
  • Copy things you can't select

Who is this app for?

Anyone annoyed by weird behavior of text selection or non-selectable text.
