World's simplest text tool

World's simplest browser-based utility for creating a zigzag text. Load your text in the input form on the left and you'll instantly get back a wavy zigzag text in the output form. Powerful, free, and fast. Load text – make letters go in a zigzag. Created by developers from team Browserling.
Position and Direction
Create a zigzag that runs from
the first line to the bottom line.
Create a zigzag that runs from
the bottom line to the first line.
Create a zigzag that runs from
an arbitrary line and goes in
arbitrary direction.
Set the starting line and the
initial diraction of the zigzag.
For example, "3d" starts the zigzag
on line 3 and moves it down, and "2u"
starts on line 2 and moves it up.
Fragments, Height, and Expansion
Number of letters in a single
zigzag's fragment
Number of lines vertically,
also known as zigzag's height.
Expand the zigzag by this many
space symbols.
Space Control
Symbol that fills the space
around the zigzag.
Remove extra spaces from
individual zigzag fragments
so that they neatly align one
below (or above) another.
Zigzag text maker tool What is a zigzag text maker
With this online tool, you can make any text go in a zigzag. The program rearranges all letters and symbols of the given text so that they visually resemble a triangular waveform. Such arrangement of letters is also often called a letter wave. The wave can start from any position, move up or down, and its fragments can have any length. You can configure each of these parameters in the options. The beginning of the zigzag wave can be selected in the first block of options and you can start it from the top left point (then it will move down), start it from the bottom left point (then it will move up), or set a custom starting point and direction for it. If you select a custom starting point and direction, then you'll also need to enter the wave's starting line number and append a suffix "u" or "d", which means the direction – either "up" or "down". For example, "2d" will start the zigzag on the second line and it will move down. The length of each zigzag fragment can be specified in the "Fragment Length" option. Here you can specify how many letters and symbols will be used to form a single zigzag fragment. The height of the zigzag (the height of the wave) can be specified in the second block of options and it defines how many text lines will be used vertically. You can also expand the zigzag horizontally by stretching it by one or more additional symbols via the "Expand ZigZag" option. Two additional options will allow you to adjust whitespace inside and around the zigzag. The "Skip Extra Spaces" option will remove extra spaces inside the zigzag fragments so that they neatly align at the breaking points, and the "Outside Fill Symbol" option will fill the space around the zigzag the specified symbol. Textabulous!
Zigzag text maker examples Click to use
A Two-line Zigzag
In this example, we create a text wave by placing letters in a zigzag pattern with amplitude (height) of just two characters. We split the text into individual letters, remove spaces between the words, and make the wave run down from the first character on the first line.

Create a Snake-like Text
This example rewrites a fact about snakes into a snake-like shape. It starts the snake from the bottom-left point, uses 2 letters per snake segment, and sets its height to 4 text lines. It also stretches the snake by one additional symbol and fills the space around the snake with the snake-like tilde "~" symbol. Snake snake snake snake.

Zigzag Text about Count Dracula
In this example, we convert a fragment of text about Count Dracula into a zigzag shape. The text is written in Unicode's gothic letters and we group them into 3-character-long segments and create a 6-character-high zigzag from them. We start the zigzag from the custom position "3u", which means it starts on line "3" and the next movement is "up". Additionally, we fill the empty space around the zigzag with the Unicode character "⁘".
