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.

"Versatile inexpensive polyglot text editor"

November 12, 2010  |  By wry6read

 |  Version: TextPad 5.4

Pros

TP is a great coding resource / text editor to have around especially if you're an eclectic coder. Its plugins that provide ide-lite formatting/markup of coding. It's really the coder's "pocketknife." Totally dependable, and cheap at the price.

Cons

Till you pay for it, TP pops up little "continue evaluation?" messages about every 10th time you save your work. BUT -- it still saves the work first, then pops up, and returns you to the work once you reply to the alert.

Summary

I've used versions TP (not exclusively of course!) on and off for nearly ten years, and would hate to live without it. Great for simple html or as that handy "visible clipboard" for editing code chunks without screwing up your 1200 line script!
