Editors' Review


Many Windows users prefer to replace Notepad with a more capable text editor. XPad Text is one of the many contestants for the job. This portable freeware has full Unicode support for UTF-8, UTF-16, and UTF-32, including multiple languages. It's compact, lightweight, and uses little memory. Among its features are automatic copy selection to the clipboard, multiple clipboard selections, active links, a calculator, and various decoders and converters. Since it's portable, it can run from USB drives and other directories.

XPad's developers said this portable tool is fast, and it opened almost instantaneously when we clicked its single executable. A small pop-up includes Web and Contact links. XPad has an attractive, compact interface with an efficient layout: a main window flanked by icon-based toolbars. One of the program's stated advantages is that all its menus are available right on the interface. Among them is the Configuration menu, which lets users change the background color, create shortcuts, set file associations, and other options. We could also open Explorer, our e-mail client, and our browser from the interface (the browser button uses an IE icon but opened our default Web browser). Fonts, Tex Format, Always-on-Top, Multiple Clipboard, Search, Replace, Word Wrap, and many other controls and options are immediately available for the fastest possible operations.

So XPad is fast and efficient. But as a text editor? Actually, it's really good at that, too. We started with basic text operations like Copy, Paste, and Save, and then find and replace, text formatting, and using the multiple clipboard to insert pretyped text strings. But XPad really surpasses Notepad and similar tools with its filter menu. It includes Convert to Uppercase, Lowercase, and Namecase, Convert TABs to Spaces and Spaces to TABs, Sort lines, Text formatter, Trim Spaces, and others. Some thought went into XPad, which is one of the fastest yet most flexible text editors we've tried.

"reprimand to cnet"

its small, no installation, easy.


The xpad exe that gets created from the cnet downloaded file, gives not a valid windows application when its run. Thanks for the time waste and the frustration. The xpad.exe downloaded from their own site worked fine, its free, its small, etc, but come now, its nowhere close textpad or ultraedit or notepadd++.

Wow, it is very lite weight, no installation required and box of simple but very useful tools. It is ability to write text in Right to Left direction and it is fully compatable with Arabic text like the note pad.


It will be perfect, if there is a little tool or option that allow it to replace Note Pad in viewing page source of Internet Explorer.

"As easy as notepath"

Nice because it's free. I'm not using windows very often and so don't want to pay for an editor like UltraEdit. Simple exe file. No installation required. Handy: You can switch between unix, windows and mac line feeds and also see what linefeed is used in the current text


First thing i looked for was how to enable line numbers. I didn't find it.
