Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This program was designed as a quick file editor for programmers, but works well as a small text editor for all users. The interface resembles Wordpad with a few additional function icons and menus. Editor2's programming roots are evident in functions including line and column indicators, indentation control, brace and bracket matching, and hexadecimal viewing. Other users will appreciate the program's small size and memory load. The single executable file isn't installed in Windows and multiple files can be opened concurrently. The program also works well as a small HTML editor with advanced features including auto-text replace, view contents in browser, and search-and-replace history. Editor2 is a powerful text editor suitable for any user, but many of its functions may be of no interest to novices looking to type quick notes. However, its small size and portability make it a good tool for all users.

Developer's Description

Editor is a really small Notepad replacement, yet packed with useful features for productive everyday use. Both ANSI/UNIX and Unicode text files are supported. It features powerful search-and-replace commands, Hex and RTF viewer, dual font/color selection, URL autodetection, lots of keyboard shortcuts, plus loads of handy bits for programmers (brace matching, autoIndent). The unique AutoText feature makes inserting HTML open/closing tags a breeze. Editor is one of the richest feature-to-size packages in its class.

Version 2.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
