    "Windows is incomplete without it."

    August 20, 2007  |   By cbdsteve

    Version: TextPad 4.7.3

    Pros

    This is a great program - it's a powerful text editing tool that's really comfortable to use. It integrates beautifully with windows explorer, and is one of the most benign shareware programs around, with just has a gentle nag screen to try to get you to buy (which I eventually did, once I realised I was using this program more than ANY other software...)

    Textpad has a very clean, simple interface that deals only with text - that is, it doesn't let you change font halfway down the page, or make text underlined or itallic; it's built purely to deal with the content, and does that job EXTREMELY well. It has many high-powered functions that put even Microsoft Word in the shade, whilst still being simple and efficient to leave on all the time (there's no software bloat here; I've run textpad on some VERY old machines with no problem at all).

    I tend to start up Textpad as soon as my PC boots up and it stays running until I shut down, no matter what high-performance software or games I'm running. This is the ultimate replacement for Notepad, without the aggravating extras that Wordpad adds (there are no "Why can't I delete that line?" moments here).

    For advanced users, especially those writing code or converting data files, Textpad is serious alternative to vi or emacs. It has more options re: file format than either program, supports regular expressions, provides good syntax highlighting, and allows the user to record and edit macros. The document browser and 'Save Workspace' functionality allows you to easily work with multiple files at once, and the Common Clips library let you store chunks of code that you use regularly.

    There is a vibrant Textpad community, with many libraries of code clips, syntax coloring definitions, and spell check dictionaries.

    Cons

    I'd like to see a multi-slot clipboard - something like the Yank function in emacs, where you can call up things that were previously copied.

    "Very professional and intuitive text editor"

    August 31, 2006  |   By john_mz

    Version: TextPad 4.7.3

    Pros

    I like software that is well written and does what you want it to. I have been using TextPad for years, and it works like a dream.

    Not only is it easy to use, it has so many smart features that just make it all work and come together. The advance features (macros, ability to run tools, document classes, colour schemes, customization, etc, etc) really let you turn this into a very powerful piece of software. And I keep finding new ways for it to do things.

    It can handle massive files, is very clean to use, very fast and very reliable.

    Top stuff ... can't recommend it highly enough.

    Cons

    For $29.00 you won't hear any complaints from me. I just wish all software out there were written as well as this one :-)
