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.

    Other than hex editing.

    With a text file open, hex editing was not enabled. No good to me.

    Summary

    Can't use it. Found CFF Explorer to be OK.

    "OK."

    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.

    "You will love it!"

    May 22, 2005   |   By jzwp

    Version: Editor2 2.5

    Pros

    I've got my background set at Green and foreground Cyan.

    Really cuts out the confusion if you are working between another open Notepad file.

    Cons

    Similar to WordPad as the caret does not return home (get used to it)

    "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.
