Editors' review

Once you explore the power of NoteTab Light, you may find this text editor beautiful despite its hectic interface. At its core, NoteTab Light is to Windows' Notepad as an iPhone is to a rotary phone. NoteTab Light incorporates top-level tabs similar to most Web browsers, so that you can manage several different projects at once, and it can automatically replace Notepad so that Notepad's icons open NoteTab instead.

However, there's much more to it. The left column displays a list of commands, called Clips, that do anything from inserting bits of text to generating code. Each library, the roster of which appears as tabs at the bottom of the screen, contains its own set of clips. The FTP library, for example, lets you create server profiles, connect, upload and download files, and issue various commands. The HTML library auto-completes HTML tags. The publisher's site offers many user-created libraries, or you can make your own. You can create your own clips by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2.

Several of the clips, including the Tidy HTML clip and the TopStyle library, require secondary freeware apps to support them, but NoteTab will direct you to their Web pages if it finds them missing. NoteTab Light isn't a tool for casual users, but power users and programmers should find plenty to love.

    "SLOW LOADING"

    June 23, 2014   |   By BOBRGR

    Version: NoteTab Light 7.1

    Pros

    I have version 4.92 which is great...loads in 1sec
    Has Tabs, Favorites and customizable clipbooks

    Cons

    Slow loading...I've tried several versions since 4.92...the most recent being V7.1 and they take forever to load..

    Summary

    .Microsoft Word loads way faster..it take 34sec for V7.1 to load on Win7 64bit...Word is nearly 30x faster than this pig...no excuse...later versions should be faster, better matched to newer operating systems.

    "It has a lot of extra functions that are very useful"

    January 03, 2013   |   By XandroHernandez

    Version: NoteTab Light 7.1

    Pros

    I like it very much. I wonder why I had not use it before as I should. I am going to start using it more. It has a good set of useful functions, many not regularly available in text editors. It is a very good program to have. I use EditPad Lite, but at some point I might start using NoteTab Light as my default plain text editor. I will continue to use MS Word as my main word processor and CesarUSA Text Editor BS2 as my secondary word processor/editor until CesarUSA.com releases new versions of text editors such as the CesarUSA WordProcessor, which would work with Doc and Docx files and have autocompletion in multiple languages.

    Cons

    It has some features that are for programmers, not really for the general public. It might take a little bit of time to learn some of the features, but many of them are a or two click away. It has an Untilities menu, but the menu items do not have tooltips that tell you what the features do.
