Editors' Review

+

TED Notepad provides users with a tool to quickly compose documents. While it has some excellent features, it also has a few missing pieces that make it an uneven experience.

The program's interface will look familiar to anyone who has ever used a computer's Notepad program. The program's large, open screen and command menus along the top will be second nature. To anyone unfamiliar, there is a useful Help file available. In many ways, TED is simpler than other word-processing software. Users just start typing and can alter the document using the menus above. However, we didn't like some of the limiting aspects of this program, such as its inability to change the font, size, and color of the text. However, for users unconcerned with that, there are plenty of other functions to love. The program offers all of its editing, tools, and search options as a menu or as a hot key, which is an improvement over some of the competition. One feature we enjoyed was the hot-key option to convert text from or to Unix or MAC files. This can be very appealing to users frustrated by difficult conversions of those types.

While we would have liked more control over the text, this freeware program proved to be a good match for users interested in speed and hot-key ease and we recommend it for those people.

"My Notepad replacement, after trying out 10-15 others"

November 06, 2014  |  By kjbaumga

 |  Version: TED Notepad 6.0.2 Beta

Pros

It's small and fast. Lots of features. Autosave - critical for people who use their Notepad replacement frequently, but rare for notepad replacement programs. Sophisticated search function. Nice set of text utilities, such as tools for capitalizing words in various ways (surprisingly useful), extended replace (replacing beyond line limits), removing duplicate lines, many more. This is the best I've found for jotting down notes, writing drafts of letters, all manner of simple text chores.

Cons

Not a programmer's editor, but I use a separate editor for that. Thus, no searching across files, or programming language syntax coloring, and so on. My least favorite feature is that it doesn't auto-save files until you name them, but no other notepad replacement I tried has this either. No MDI (multiple document interface), but if you use windows 7-8 all the windows are stacked on the taskbar anyway.

Summary

I use multiple text editors depending on my needs, since they take up very little space on modern machines. But this one is my default one for text-only files. (My default for formatted Text files is TextMaker.) I also use Notepad++ and TextPad. Those programs are overkill for simple writing and note-taking tasks. Among my most used programs.

"Bye bye Win Notepad!"

May 21, 2012  |  By Jim Harmon

 |  Version: TED Notepad 6.0.2 Beta

Pros

Very fast and capable

Cons

I haven't come across one con yet

Summary

My favorite feature is its ability to handle regular expressions (regexps) during search & replace. This one feature turns what would be a massive headache into a piece of cake.
