"Lacks basic features"

June 13, 2012  |  By spril

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Pros

Within its limited realm the editor seems to get by.

Cons

- Prohibits users from selecting proportional fonts (is this editor stuck in 1960?)
- Help is not installed in default download
- Cumbersome custom plug-in configuration is required to edit ASP files

Summary

If you like the courier font and don't mind the broken help functions (or are willing to take the time to fix them), this could be the editor for you.

"Would be excellent except for word-wrap bug"

January 04, 2010  |  By rjtaggart

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Pros

Good interface, easy to use, syntax highlighting for most languages, good ftp support.

Cons

Word-wrap bug often causes the program to crash when pasting a large string (e.g. large url) into a document, making it unsuitable for writing web pages.

"Not user friendly"

May 01, 2008  |  By caenet

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Cons

PSPad tries to access the internet every time

I (& many others) launch(ed) PSPad.

The developer & team have no interest in

addressing this issue & in fact told me

to use some other program. I now use Notepad++

January 30, 2008  |  By rif42

Version 4.5.2 works OK, but version 4.53 is even better. Lots of things has been added.

"Excellent code editor"

July 17, 2007  |  By Cold Shot

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Pros

If you hand code at all, this is the editor to use. Feature rich and still easy to use. I've been using PSPad for nearly a year now and I can do what I need to do quickly and easily but when I slow and check the menus I can still find another feature that makes some task easier.

I have used the search and replace function on numerous occasions and have not had any problems.

This is free software that would be worth paying for.

"Greatest free code editor"

July 05, 2007  |  By kcreek

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Pros

Not only can you create and edit code, PSPad allows you to have code highlighting enabled so you can easily alter and create code faster. Furthermore, if color codes are needed to be inserted, there is a built in color picker that can enter color codes for you. Also, it has FTP support, you can create projects, and its ALL FREE!

"best free programming editor around"

May 23, 2007  |  By SammyF70

 |  Version: PSPad editor 4.5.2 (2241)

Pros

lightweight, very good syntax and brackets highlighting, code completion for (at least) PHP, JScript, CSS and HTML, and all the functionalities you'd expect from a programmer's editor.

If you don't need the visual part of the Dreamweaver editor (and you could still use NVU for that), it's a very good alternative

Cons

closes quotes and tags automatically, making it sometimes a bit frustrating when you're editing PHP or Jscript.
