I have been using this program for several years now and it is in my default configuration. Every time I upgrade or reimage, this is one of the few programs I download before anything else. The setup is a breeze and if you are unsatisfied in any way uninstall is just one click away.
I have used Editpad, note tab light, notepad++ and several others but this is the fastest notepad replacement that I could find.
It's the best one that I`ve found so far. It`s a keeper.
This is awesome, links are auto, numbered lines, change text color. This is the ultimate notepad. The reason I like this so much is it's not too bulky or over done for a basic text editor but has really cool options that are HANDY, not just eye candy! Oh yeah... this one's a keeper and I would suggest EVERYONE get a copy of this!
Any links are active that you insert. Faults: Setting text the size you choose will set whole document, and there is no bold underline etc.., Otherwise this is so COOL! IMO
Make line numbers visible, or not.
Set background colour, even foreground color.
Create zero-length file in its folder and name it Win32Pad.ini -- Then Win32Pad becomes fully portable on flash. One way to do that: echo.>Win32Pad.ini [ENT]andexit
All settings get saved to this local .ini file.
Win32Pad is not Unicode compliant, but otherwise it is most suitable and has a small footprint.
Print margins are fixed, but they work well for a 3-ring binder.
A more heavy-duty editor WITH Unicode is NotePad2, which allows MULTIPLE .ini files according to your taste or need (specify in the command line which one).
I use Win32Pad all the time and recommend it.
Win32Pad's developer deserves some kind of achievement award! Unless one wants and needs *significantly* more features and is willing to "pay" for them with more resource use and a lot more intrusiveness (context-menu items, entries throughout the registry, etc.), this text editor more than suffices. It's a great replacement for NotePad, and even on a small pen drive you'll hardly notice it's there... till it does what you want it to do.
When I get a new PC there are a number of applications that I immediately load. Win32Pad is one of those applications. I consider this to be 'must have' software.
Far more than a 'Notepad' or ' WordPad' replacement. I use it for nearly all of my word processing needs. Win32Pad' is also useful for for programming and batch file editing. I use a voice dictation program and it works very well with that application, which is unusual.
When you install, be sure to select the options 'open with' in the context menu and also ' make this my Notepad replacement'.
Because this program supports so many different formats, I end up using 'open with Win32Pad' many times each day. I can't recommend this program enough. After installation, check out the options menu. There are nice controls which may not be obvious.
For heavy-duty programming and scripting, some other programs with multiple open, tabbed files has advantages. But for daily use, Win32Pad is the best and easiest to work with.
