Editors' Review

+
This program was designed as a quick file editor for programmers, but works well as a small text editor for all users. The interface resembles Wordpad with a few additional function icons and menus. Editor2's programming roots are evident in functions including line and column indicators, indentation control, brace and bracket matching, and hexadecimal viewing. Other users will appreciate the program's small size and memory load. The single executable file isn't installed in Windows and multiple files can be opened concurrently. The program also works well as a small HTML editor with advanced features including auto-text replace, view contents in browser, and search-and-replace history. Editor2 is a powerful text editor suitable for any user, but many of its functions may be of no interest to novices looking to type quick notes. However, its small size and portability make it a good tool for all users.

"OK."

October 16, 2007

 |  Version: Editor2 2.5

Cons

More for programmers, too much for ordinary editor. Wordpad is more appropriate for a small advanced editor.

"Just a bunch of buttons and very few features."

March 24, 2006  |  By jsimlo

 |  Version: Editor2 2.5

Pros

Bookmarks.

Cons

The program is based on newest Richedit and requires it. It has only a few features extra than standard Wordpad, or other Wordpad/Notepad replacements.

"The smallest and fastest Notepad replacement"

December 19, 2002  |  By davidt

 |  Version: Editor2 2.5

Summary

At just under 100k, It has to be the smallest notepad replacement software. It might be small in size, but not in features. It can handle large files, and offers extensive keyboard shortcuts. To close the application, simply hit the "Escape" key. To change fonts, hit Alt + 1, 2. It's right up there with my other favorite, Metapad.
