Editors' Review

Although technical writers and other users who need a lot of advanced options will find this program lacking, for the average user, PolyEdit Lite provides everything one would want in a basic word-processing program. Its familiar layout allows users to get started right away.

The program's interface will look familiar to anyone who's used a pre-2007 version of Microsoft Word. The contents of some of the menus are a little different, but for the most part, everything is where experienced Word users would expect it to be. Users can also customize the color scheme of the interface, which we thought was a nice touch. Our experience with the program's features, in general, was that anything we'd typically use in Word was there, and anything that we usually had to go hunting around for in Word due to infrequent use was not there. Notably, there's no mail merge or label creation options, and the view options were lacking (we prefer to write in Word's print layout, but PolyEdit contains no such thing). We did like the fact that the program handles multiple open documents with tabs, which keeps everything tidy. Users will find the usual text-formatting options, find-and-replace, spell check, headers and footers, and most other basic word-processing features. Overall, we found the program to be a great lightweight alternative to more cumbersome word-processing programs.

PolyEdit Lite is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users who have light-to-moderate word-processing needs.
