Editors' Review

+
The program offers greater flexibility than the standard NotePad, though it's not as powerful as programming-oriented programs such as UltraEdit. With DocPad, you can easily change text case, indent text blocks, and convert encoding. DocPad provides useful tools for HTML coding, including a character map and a color picker. It allows quite sophisticated text manipulations, such as alphabetizing or randomizing paragraphs. It can even record macros to speed up repetitive actions. Several skins are available to customize the interface. You can minimize the program to the tray to have it at your fingertips without cluttering the Taskbar. On the downside, DocPad tries to access the Internet each time it starts, though it works fine even when access is denied. Overall, though, we can recommend this freeware app as a replacement for NotePad.

"Should be incorporated into Windows."

March 04, 2013  |  By nickrusso

 |  Version: DocPad 12.1

Pros

FAST!
Easy to use and customize.
Option to replace Notepad associations.

Cons

None at all

Summary

What can I say? I've tried so many text editors, most have been slow programmers overkill tools. They are great for that, but I mostly want something that pops up as fast as I can click, but gives me better operability than Notepad.

This is just the step up from notepad I need; not too much, not too little.

It is the perfect Notepad replacement for everyday text editing. I will keep NoteTab for more heavy-duty work.

"OK...BUT... complicated dictionary & no text dragging"

March 28, 2011  |  By KIKI556

 |  Version: DocPad 9.0

Pros

It does have a spell checker, but

Cons

Needed dictionary. I typed "STUFFFED" to see how the dictionary worked. It had of list of over 100 words. This is never going to save time. I couldn't find ''STUFFED". Although it was happy when I spelled it correctly. Also no dragging text.

Summary

You will have to download the dictionary from their website. I just want a notepad with a spell check and to be able to drag text... help!

"Top of the Line Text Editor"

November 09, 2007  |  By WaterRabbit

 |  Version: DocPad 5.2

Pros

Let me first say that the person who rated this software two stars must have not understood the rating system. I have read reviews that told how much they loved some product and then gave it a one star rating, weird huh? Well I have used DocPad for a long time and before that used MS NotePad & WordPad and can tell you that I have never had a problem with any version of DocPad. It does what is I ask of it and more, I cut and paste parts of websites, use it for work, pull entire pages off the web and modify them for my needs. The fonts look great and you can even change the skins or make a custom color combination. Some people might not think that the colors are a big deal but if you work for a long time some color change can really help you to focus or relax, it makes a difference, try it. If you need a change from MS and would like a good text editor then give DocPad a try and I think you will love this as much as I do. Thank You to all the developers who made this great tool available to us for FREE. Joseph W. aka WaterRabbit
