Editors' Review

+

The latest release of ES-Computing's EditPlus, version 3.5, adds improved support for high DPI displays as well as Windows 8 compatibility to a long-running and well-regarded text, HTML, Java, and PHP editor that also offers syntax highlighting, integrated Web browsing, code folding, auto-completion, and much more. EditPlus is shareware that is free to try for 30 days with a nag screen.

The EditPlus installer offers more options than most software, whatever the type, including three different installation directories and context menu association. When we first ran the program, we selected the Evaluate button to start our 30-day trial. EditPlus has what can be considered the classic utility layout: Menu bar above toolbar; sidebar on the left, tabbed for Directory and Cliptext, and offering tree view navigation; and a main window. The lower half of the Directory tab is a list of executables, scripts, templates, syntax files, and other items most users need most often. The Cliptext tab is equally handy; it displays ANSI characters, Control characters, CSS2 and CSS3, HTML 4.01 and 5, and XHTML 1.0. All are default settings, though, and can be configured through the User Tools Preferences and Groups, the program's View menu, and through the Windows menu and other settings and preferences. And that's just the start; for example, there's an extensive Zen Coding menu, text-to-speech and keystroke recording tools, and an impressive array of User Tools. If it seems like a lot, just do what EditPlus recommends: For Help, press F1, and the EditPlus Online Manual will appear. Despite the name, the manual is a fully indexed and searchable Windows Help file that seemingly explains every detail of this simple but powerful tool's extensive capabilities.

Simple? Yes, but EditPlus isn't for casual users who simply want a better Notepad; it's for those who want to build a better mousetrap. It did everything we asked of it, though we had to click through a nag screen in the evaluation trial. Despite the fact that the average Windows user will find most of what EditPlus does overwhelming, those who need what it has to offer can (and do) rely on it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of EditPlus 3.50.

"Great HTML, PHP & Text Editor"

October 30, 2013  |  By NYC-HDL

 |  Version: EditPlus 3.51

Pros

Perhaps the best Text Editor I have used (although, I have tried only about 9 or 10).

Color coding makes HTML & PHP very easy to read.
Menu of CSS, HTML snips for inserting into your code; same with a color-picker.
Dictionary Add-On file for Spelling Check
Nice built-in HTML rendering engine

Cons

I would like to be able to have word Wrap remember the last setting (On/Off).

Color-Picker a bit overwhelming, with too many choices, and not easy to select incremental changes (should borrow from Microsoft's color picker that is in Excel & PowerPoint)

Would like to have a file compare option to display two files side-by-side to highlight the differences.

Summary

Overwhelmingly, a great Editor App.

"Light Weight and Fast"

April 11, 2012  |  By MrDavin

 |  Version: EditPlus 3.40

Pros

This editor is not all things to all people, and as a result is rock solid and extremely light weight. Used as primary editor for the past 5 years. As stated the development team is small, but they have done a great job and have been extremely responsive.

Cons

No real issues, learning curve is minimal and options sets are great.

"Great basic editor"

January 20, 2012  |  By aburany

 |  Version: EditPlus 3.31

Pros

Very good Editor I use for quick viewing and editing any text files, plus as a supplementary PHP and HTML editor.
Fast loading, and very fast to work with.

Cons

With availability of Notepad++ offering a similar experience, it loses its position - regarding this software is not free.
