Though loaded with a wide range of editing features that will make programmers burst with joy, EditPad Pro is a plain text editor that is suitable for all types of users. With support for most (if not all) text encodings, this professional editor and word processor offers excellent search and highlight capabilities, together with a long list of visualization options, multi-language spell checking, and keystroke macros.
This versatile tool will allow you to edit full web pages, batch and binary files, source code, scripts, XML files, and text documents (among many other file formats) in a simple and intuitive way. Its fully-customizable, color-coded syntax highlight capabilities make code editing a gratifying experience. Its macro support will save you time in repetitive tasks, and its extensive search features will let you locate, highlight, and replace multiple instances of a text snippet in a breeze. Its flexible clip collection will allow you to build your own snippets library, so that you can transfer set expressions to your text with just one click. Besides, these clips can include prefixes and suffixes, which will be applied around the marked text in a snap.
The editor’s visualization features are also worth noting. You can split the editing window either horizontally or vertically (ideal to compare two files, just another of the many EditPad Pro’s great features), use your favorite font, number lines and columns, visualize spaces and line breaks, indent wrapped lines, and change the text encoding if needed. This tool supports Unicode, any Windows code page, as well as various ISO-8859, DOS, KOI8, and EBCDIC code pages.
You can merge similar files and extract the differences between them to a new file, convert text-based files between encodings, sort lines alphabetically, delete duplicate lines, shift and insert columns, move, fill, and indent blocks of text... you name it. EditPad Pro is an excellent and comprehensive plain text editor with all the functionality that you would find in the most sophisticated word processors. Programmers and web designers will love it, and general users will be amazed by its potential.
