Multiple converters for maximum flexibility
Currency Assistant lets you create and use as many conversion windows as you need. Each of them can contain up to 24 currencies and has its own tape in a drawer to log conversion results.
Converters are very easy to set up or edit, have an Action pop-up menu to quickly accomplish recurrent tasks and a Rate pop-up menu to view and copy exchange rates, and can be closed when you don't need them so that they aren't in your way.
Currency Assistant speeds up calculating conversions. You can copy multiple amounts from Excel or another application and paste them to the desired input display: Currency Assistant will automatically convert all the pasted amounts and log results in the tape.
Equivalently, you can quickly import plain text files, RTF files, Word documents, web archives, HTML files, and text clippings containing series of amounts and automatically convert the enclosed values.
Finally, if you need to convert the result of a calculation, you can simply select a display, type your expression, and press Return: Currency Assistant will calculate the expression for you and convert its result.
Currency management made simple
The fully revised Currencies window lists 174 currencies (all major circulating currencies plus the 18 Eurozone legacy currencies) and lets you easily perform all currency management tasks.
You can edit or restore currencies, set your base currency, automatically update exchange rates over the Internet, and customize the Add Currency and Switch Currency menus.
In addition to that, the Currencies window lets you sort, search, and quickly batch edit currencies.
Customizable Add Currency and Switch Currency menus
The Add Currency and Switch Currency menus let you instantly access frequently used currencies.
Currency Assistant allows you to fully customize these menus: you can choose which currencies must be displayed, add separators, arrange items manually or automatically group currencies, and sort them by name, country, or ISO code.
Automatic rates update
Currency Assistant uses the rates published by the European Central Bank, the Bank of Canada, the International Monetary Fund, and the Bank of Italy to automatically update exchange rates over the Internet.
Rates can be updated by choosing the Update Rates command from the File menu or from the Action pop-up menu, by clicking the Update Rates button in the Currencies window toolbar or automatically at startup.
When exchange rates are updated, Currency Assistant carefully logs results, so that you can easily find out whether any rates could not be updated and why. Logs can be filtered, copied, and saved to a RTF file.
Work with results: copy, save, and print conversions
Currency Assistant lets you easily export conversion results to other applications.
You can copy amounts from displays or from the tape. You can export conversions by dragging them from the tape to a document in another application. You can save the tape to a RTF file or plain text file. When dragging or saving conversions you can choose between five different formats (standard, single line, and three table formats).
In addition to that, using Copy Special commands, you can copy results including ISO code, currency name, or symbol and quickly copy frequently used text snippets containing conversion results, ISO codes, currency names and symbols.
Finally, Currency Assistant lets you print the tape and allows you to highlight specific currencies in red, green, or blue in printouts.
