"Rock Hard. King in Class."

April 28, 2013  |  By horustwohawks

 |  Version: EditPad Pro 7.2.3

Pros

From dead simple to seriously complex text / code / files management... the buck stops here. Been using this for so many years I cannot remember. I have tried almost everything (obsessively). Amoung Vim, UltraEdit, Zeus and some others that I am always using, I mostly rely on this for the daily grind.

Just to mention, probably not a lot of reviews here because serious coders don't typically pick up much (in this ilk) here at Cnet, but rather go straight to the source. While passing through I thought I'd leave a note in consideraton for my gratitude for this superior product (for many many years now), and to let others at any level know to definitely try this if you are looking for a better text editor. Good for users at any level.

Cons

There are no cons -this has years under its belt, and works flawlessly, period.

"Great for large files"

October 31, 2012  |  By freecellwizard

 |  Version: EditPad Pro 7.1.2

Pros

* Loads very large text files quickly
* Great regex and other search options
* syntax highlighing and project for code editing
*

Cons

Nothing I can think of.

Summary

I've had EditPad for years and it's my go-to text editor. I use it for viewing big log files, quickly viewing code files (since opening Visual Studio is slow), XML files, etc. The ability to select a rectangle of text and the ability to "fold" and copy lines that match a search are also great. Great customer service as well.

By the way, this great reg ex site (http://www.regular-expressions.info/) is by the same guy.

"A great editor for programmers"

July 10, 2011  |  By Oldbill70

 |  Version: EditPad Pro 7.0.4

Pros

It has done everything I've asked of it and never failed. I've had many editors in the past 50 years and this is as good as the best of them.

Cons

Nothing serious. I'm just not too into regular expressions.

Summary

What more can I say? For anyone who can stand the complexity this is the editor of choice.

"The only editor I use since I tried it."

September 05, 2010  |  By wb3efa

 |  Version: EditPad Pro 6.6.4

Pros

Has special features for programmers, such as custom colors and formatting for most languages, but still is far better than notepad for simple text files. Powerful search and replace functions.

Cons

Takes a bit of learning to be get used to the program, but is well worth it.

"Easy Text Editor/Reader"

November 16, 2009  |  By pdqone

 |  Version: EditPad Pro 6.5.2

Pros

Will READ .dat Files (only product I've found that will actually do this)

Cons

There is nothing I don't like about this product.

Summary

Ever get a "Returned" e-mail from the Postmaster? They are very annoying. What even worse is that they arrive with .dat file attachments. None of the software that comes with Windows will read these files. EditPad Pro is the only software that will read these files.
