Editors' review

When Word is too much and Notepad isn't enough, you might want to give TextPad a look. The text tool requires little drive space, but comes with a surprising array of unique features that are especially useful for programming tasks. A group of simple formatting tools such as indenting, line numbering, character transposing, and condition-based word wrapping help keep code in order. It offers excellent customization features, letting you create formatting and code coloring specific to whatever language you're programming in. Those looking for a robust tool for low-end desktop publishing will be disappointed, however. TextPad works best for programmers and other people who need a full-featured tool for plain text.

    "Nice Editor But Not Recommended for Large Files"

    August 22, 2014   |   By scollege

    Version: TextPad 7.2

    Pros

    Plenty of Options
    Nice Regex Support

    Cons

    Tends to crash when working with large files

    Summary

    I've used TextPad for years. I do love it, but sadly it does tend to crash a lot when the files are a bit large.

    Not an issue if your files are of minimal to moderate size.
