Editors' Review

EditPad Lite from Just Great Software is a freeware text editor that replaces Notepad in Windows. It adds up-to-date features like tabs, no arbitrary limits on file size, file conversion, unlimited undo and redo, and compatibility with Mac and Unix files.

EditPad Lite's installer let us choose between standard, portable, and advanced installation options. We selected the advanced option, which let us choose directories and set EditPad Lite as the default text file application, which would open EditPad Lite instead of Notepad when we clicked a text file or opened a new text file from Explorer's right-click menu. We could change it back by selecting Configure File Types on the Options menu; uninstalling the program restores Notepad as the default. EditPad Lite's menu bar adds selections labeled Search, Block, and Convert to the usual complement of items. The Block menu is especially useful; it let us not only indent and outdent blocks of text but also insert files, append text, and Write (save) or Print the selection. The Convert tool handles uppercase, lowercase, invert case, initial caps, and text encoding, and it converts files between ANSI, ASCII, and Unicode as well as Unix and Mac formats in some instances. We could even apply simple ROT-13 encoding and decoding to texts as well. A full-featured, icon-based toolbar added features such as word wrap, fonts, auto indent, and multiple undo options and gave EditPad Lite the feel of a graphics app or word processor. Adding a new tab or closing any or all tabs was easy, too. EditPad Lite offers plenty of assistance and documentation, including a Tip of the Day feature, feedback reporter, and keyboard shortcuts menu.

Pity the poor Notepad, which looks pretty weak next to EditPad Lite. It brings the features and flexibility of a top-class tool to Windows, and its price is right, too, as in "free." Highly recommended.

    "Sneaky Installer"

    May 28, 2013   |   By EditPad_Bad

    Version: EditPad Lite 7.2.3

    Pros

    Seems ok, but the underhanded installs are hidden and nasty

    Cons

    Installed link hijacker and installed browser add-on. Installed pretend backup service, UNBRANDED and made to look like windows component. Other programs also installed, 4 in total.

    Summary

    AVOID EditPad, they are providing it free as bait to covertly invade. USE WITH CAUTION - there are no options would you like to install ...

    The editor comment on the money.

    "Comes with unwanted browser helper object."

    March 25, 2013   |   By Lia2

    Version: EditPad Lite 7.2.3

    Pros

    The product is deserving of a good review but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because it comes bundled with an objectionable extra program that truly alters the browsing experience for the worse - much worse...

    Cons

    Even after selecting custom installation (to make sure nothing extra came with the software) GetSavin 5.0 by AdPeak was installed in the background.

    Summary

    A very well designed program is totally marred by being bundled with a hidden download of tracking software.

    February 23, 2013   |   By traumig

    Version: EditPad Lite 7.2.3

    Pros

    Quite pretty program.

    Cons

    It changed my browsers settings and Blekko's toolbar appeared without me asked.
